It might be spring break for Murray and Taylorsville high schools, but it is no time for a respite from soccer.

And for one Murray senior, Logan Ulibarry, Friday’s home game was definitely one to sustain his own personal momentum.

Ulibarry, who was playing in his second game after being academically ineligible for the first few games of the season, scored two goals as the Spartans beat the Warriors 3-2. Murray fell behind by a 2-0 count, but rebounded on Ulibarry’s goals to tie the game by half.

"I didn’t make grades and I had to work hard to" improve them, Ulibarry said.

"I was disappointed that he didn’t work to get here at the beginning of the season, but he dug himself out of a big hole," Murray coach Bryan DeMann said. "He put in a lot of extra time, extra hours coming to school early — study halls, things to get caught up.

"That showed that he really wanted to be here and play," DeMann added. "He’s obviously a talent."

Ulibarry’s first goal, to trim the Taylorsville (3-2-1) lead in half, came when his rebound shot deflected off a Warriors player 15 minutes into the game. But it was the senior’s speed that was the determining factor in Ulibarry’s second tally as his stayed onside for a pass toward the Warriors’ goal, outraced the Taylorsville defender and scored again.

Murray (5-1-1) broke the tie in the opening moments of the second half when junior Sam Hansgen, on a pass from teammate Sean Speirs, found the net. The visiting Warriors had a pair of good opportunities to tie the game over the remainder of the game but were unable to convert.

"I think we can go far as long as we work together and stay focused," Ulibarry said.

Taylorsville senior Jaden Brewer started the game’s scoring when, after every other player hesitated in anticipation of a foul being called, he chipped into the lower right corner of the Murray goal from 20 yards out in the 11th minute.

That was followed by another Warriors goal, less than 10 minutes later, as Amar Uvejovic punched home a 25-yarder when Murray keeper Tanner Critchfield moved away from the goal to try to stop a T-ville rush.

"Our players, on this team, have never beaten them. We tied them last year," Warriors’ coach George Sirstins said of the Spartans. "It’s an emotional game and I felt the own-goal got us down. And I think they caught us off-guard to start the second half.

"Emotionally, we let down," he added. "We’re just not finishing, but we’re close."
