Timberview posted a 3-0 win over Mansfield Tuesday, securing the Lady Wolves’ second-place seed from District 7-5A.

The Lady Wolves now stand at 10-3, just a game behind Mansfield’s 11-2.

Tuesday was set for the final regular season games with the bi-district playoff rounds starting next Tuesday.

With the win over the Lady Tigers, Timberview separated themselves from Midlothian, which sits in third place at 8-5.

Midlothian was also the opponent for Timberview on Tuesday. The games were played after the press deadline, but results can be found at dfwvarsity.com.

Mansfield finished with Cedar Hill and awaits the playoffs.

Should there be an upset of Mansfield and a Lady Wolves win, a tiebreaker match would be set for Friday.

Timberview head coach Beth Wills said teams from District 7-5A would be in contact with those in 8-5A to begin discussing scenarios and playoff locations.

With the standings as they are, Timberview would take on Belton, with Mansfield playing Ellison. Other match-ups are possible as the district race is tight for the final two playoff spots.

Timberview also posted a win over Cedar Hill last week, while Mansfield picked up a win over Grand Prairie.

•  The race is even tighter in District 15-4A, as Legacy, 10-3 and in third place, was playing second place Red Oak (11-2) on Tuesday. A Lady Broncos win would throw the two schools into a tie and force a third match between the two teams to determine the final seedings.

Legacy is in the playoffs under first-year head coach Amanda Singleton who knocked off Lancaster and Seguin last week to entrench them near the top of the district standings.

•  Summit has also secured a playoff spot as the district’s fourth team. The Lady Jaguars had a 8-5 record heading into their Tuesday match with Seguin.

Summit had lost to district leader, Waxahachie before picking up the needed win over Ennis on Friday.

•  Lake Ridge finished just behind Summit in fifth place and was currently sporting a 5-8 record prior to the Lady Eagles’ game with Ennis.
