Early Goals Lead Murray Past Caldwell 5-1

Murray scored three early goals and went on to beat Caldwell County 5-1 in a boys’ soccer makeup date at Butler Stadium in Princeton on Saturday.

Trevor Harrison had two of those goals for the visiting black-and-goal Tigers (2-2).

Blake Vivrette got the homestanding blue-and-gold Tigers on the scoreboard late in the first half when he converted a penalty kick.

But Murray held a 3-1 lead at halftime.

Caldwell (0-3) had trouble generating many scoring opportunities against the more-experienced Murray squad.

The visitors tacked on two more goals in the second half to make it 5-1.

Besides Harrison’s two tallies, Gabe Taylor, Abraham Leon and Charles Pemwell each scored once for Murray, which also got two assists from Chase Renick and one assist each from Pemwell, Michael Michael and Trey Boggess.

Caldwell plays at home again on Monday when it hosts Calloway County (0-3-1).
