MOUNT PLEASANT — It was Murphy's Law in cleats.
Anything that possibility could go wrong for Sulphur Springs, did.
Wide open passes dropped, the pigskin bouncing the wrong way for the Wildcats and into the hands of Marshall.
The Mavericks went to 4-1 in district play and wrapped up a playoff berth with a 48-13 win over Sulphur Springs Friday night at Sam Parker Field.
The game had an usual feel to it anyway, maybe because it was played just a day before Halloween. Or not. Maybe because it was a home game held 38 miles from Gerald Prim Stadium in Mount Pleasant.
