Callaway soccer teams roll on road
By KEVIN ECKLEBERRY
They were short-handed, but it didn’t matter.
The Callaway Lady Cavaliers were without five starters for Tuesday’s game at Temple, but they still rolled to a 9-0 victory in a Region 5-AA soccer match.
Callaway was led by Chloe McGuffin and Cheney Eubanks, who each had three goals in the blowout win.
Amiya McCurty, Lainey Hill and Naomi Ozley scored one goal apiece for Callaway.
The story was much the same in the boys’ game, with Callaway easing to an 8-1 victory to improve to 2-1 in the region.
The Cavaliers got four goals from Ian Bryan, and Michael Everett and Joe Neese each had two goals.
Grayson Lambert had three assists for the Cavaliers, Noah Stephens had two assists, and Everett, Bryan and Alex Shea each had one.
“It’s good to see us play well, possess the ball, and still find many opportunities to score,” Callaway head coach Mike Petite said. “However, we have to find ways to play at this level more consistently as we continue region play.”
The Cavaliers took control early, with Everett scoring seven minutes into the game.
Bryan and Neese each scored
two goals in the first half as Callaway surged to a 5-0 lead.
Bryan added two more goals in the second half and Everett scored one, and Callaway led 8-0 before Temple scored a late goal.
Callaway’s teams will be on the road against Spencer on Friday.
