SULPHUR SPRINGS -- Cameron Haller lifted Marshall to its first District 16-5A win of the season Friday with 207 yards 16 carries.

Haller runs of 14, 20 and 73 yards for scores were more than enough to get by Sulphur Springs, 56-13, and went a ways toward the Mavericks' 490 total yards of offense.

The win helped Marshall (2-4, 1-1) into the middle pack in the league standings alongside the Wildcats (2-4, 1-1). Mount Pleasant also is 1-1 within the district, and all three teams trail Hallsville for the standings lead.

Texas High was idle Friday, but it is 1-0 in the district with a game in hand against the group of three.

While Haller rolled, junior Mavericks quarterback Hunter Herrington threw touchdowns to Marje Smith and Se'Lah Smith.

Rodarius Smith scored late in the game and Sheldon Williams scored defensively with a pick six.

Sulphur Springs' Ryan Humphries tossed a touchdown pass to Simeon Taylor to make it a 21-7 game early in the second quarter. Searn Rodgers scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Marshall will host Mount Pleasant on Friday. Sulphur Springs will travel to Texas High.
