Last season, Murray State made the trip to Clarksville, where they jumped out to a 2-0 halftime lead. Peyton Powell made six second half saves and Caroline Wistrom scored in the 48th minute, but the Govs couldn’t find an equalizer in a 2-1.
With only two weekends remaining in the regular season, the Governors sit in the second to last spot for the OVC Soccer Championship. With seven points in conference play, the Govs are tied with Eastern Illinois and Morehead State, and trail Belmont by three points. The Govs will control their own fate in the OVC race, as three of their next four games are against Morehead State, Eastern Illinois, and Belmont.
After a brace against Jacksonville State, Rachel Bradberry is the Governors new leading goal scorer. The sophomore from Alabama has three goals on the season, surpassing Claire Larose, who still leads the Govs with seven points. Larose currently ranks in the top ten in the OVC in shots (13), shots per game (2.38), assists (3), and game-winning goals (2).
Sunday’s match at Murray State will be streamed live on ESPN+ for fans to enjoy.
