The Munford High School soccer team has come out of the box strong this season, particularly on defense. 

Millington paid a visit to Munford on Tuesday and left town with a 2-0 loss, finding offense hard to come by. 

Led by goalkeeper Erik Furseth, a University of Memphis signee, the Cougars notched their third shutout of the season to move to 4-0.

“We are playing very strong in the back,” said Munford head coach Kyle Selby, “only giving up one goal on the  year, and it being a penalty kick.”

Jesper Kempe put the Cougars up 1-0 on a goal in the first half that was assisted by Cedrick Williams. 

Later in the half, Kempe converted a penalty kick and Munford's defense took care of the rest. 

Last Friday, Munford defeated Covington (0-3) at home, 5-0. 

Kempe and Williams each had goals for Munford in the first half and Robby Roach, on an assist from Julian Morris, added the third tally of the half. Cameron Capers, on an assist from Kempe, tallied Munford's fourth goal. Troy Moyer assisted Alex Cherry on Munford's final goal. 

The Cougars will be looking to keep their record perfect tomorrow at Melrose Stadium in Memphis against Central. 

“We are playing very physical teams and having to learn to play faster out of the back and at midfield,” Selby said. “With a few players nursing injuries, we having to play younger players to get them the experience they need. At times this causes us to give up some of our attacking. They are continuing to learn.”
