Homecoming festivities on Friday night at F.S. Garrison Stadium turned into a one-sided matchup early when Morrilton and Harrison hit the gridiron in 5A-West action.
The Goblins were seeking to end a two-game skid while the Devil Dogs were looking to stay relevant in the conference race.
Both teams walked away with a 2-3 league record after Harrison earned a convincing 42-7 home win in front of a full house.
After a slow start and seven points by Morrilton, Harrison's offense began to click. Back-to-back drives in the first began with big passes and ended with scoring rushes. Logan Plumlee connected with Cy Madden for 56 yards and to Sloan Barrett on a 43-yard pass. Beck Jones ended each drive on short runs to the endzone and Brock Bardwell hit the PATs to make it a 14-7 lead.
Three scores in the second built the Goblin lead. Brodey Gilliam punched in a 6-yard run, and after a 54-yard pass to Barrett, Tristan Thompson scored on an 8-yard push.
The defense stepped up before the half when Talon Stephens intercepted a pass. The offense then found Dylan Block on three straight passes with the third on a 12-yard route into the endzone.
Halftime homecoming celebrations were made to the tune of a 35-7 advantage.
Morrilton's first drive of the second gained 10 yards and the punt gave the Goblins good field position in Devil Dog territory. A heavy run game over eight plays went 48 yards and finished with Jones getting his third touchdown of the ballgame.
Bardwell's extra point set the mercy rule into effect with a 42-7 score.
Neither team was able to score with the clock running and the Goblins celebrated their first home conference win of the season.
Harrison returns to action on Oct. 29, when they visit Clarksville. Morrilton will host Vilonia.
