LONGVIEW -- Cam Haller ran for 193 yards and four touchdowns and Hunter Herrington threw three touchdowns to help Marshall end its regular season with a big win, 49-7, over Pine Tree on Friday night.

Three of Herrington's five completions went for touchdowns, including a 33-yarder to Dekendrick Bender after Marshall recovered a Pine Tree fumble on the game's opening drive. Herrington also connected with Marje Smith for two touchdowns in the second half.
Maliq Owens scored Pine Tree's only touchdown -- a 20-yard run -- early in the third quarter to cut Marshall's lead to 28-7.
Trey Williams ran for 100 yards to lead Pine Tree offensively, while quarterback Keshon Williams completed 7 of 16 passes for 56 yards with two interceptions.
Marshall forced five turnovers in the win.
