LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Luton earned its first Premier League win after scoring two first-half goals and hanging on for a 2-1 victory at Everton on Saturday.

Tom Lockyer and Carlton Morris scored seven minutes apart at Goodison Park before Dominic Calvert-Lewin cut the lead in half shortly before the break.

Beto missed two chances to equalize for Everton by sending headers over the crossbar — first in the 75th and again in the 86th.

A week ago, Luton secured its first point in a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton after having lost its first four games of the season — its first-ever in the Premier League.

Luton last played in England’s top division in 1991-92 — the season before it was rebranded as the Premier League.

The visitors outhustled Toffee defenders on both goals. Lockyer was first to a rebound off the crossbar to poke home in the 24th. Morris then got clear of a defender and volleyed in Alfie Doughty's free kick in the 31st.

Calvert-Lewin netted from close range in the 41st. He's now scored in three straight games.
