The Morrilton Devil Dogs are now one win away from earning a berth in the Class 5A state football playoffs. The Devil Dogs got 169 rushing yards and three touchdowns from senior Paris Avery in a 42-20 Senior Night victory over Huntsville Friday night. Senior Warren Leapheart had five catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns to help Morrilton invoke the sportsmanship rule on its opponent for the fifth time in five wins. The Devil Dogs are now 5-4 overall, 3-3 in conference play. They're tied with Siloam Springs for fourth place in the conference, and a winner-take-all game against the Panthers will be played Friday night at Siloam Springs. The Panthers lost to Alma, 27-14, last week.
