LEBANON, Tenn. – Chuka Aruh headed in the golden goal in the 104th minute and Josh Armstrong scored a goal and assisted on another in Cumberland’s 3-2, double overtime victory over St. Catharine College in men’s soccer action Saturday at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.
Sam Sheen took a free kick near midfield and Brian McNamara headed the ball to Aruh for the game-winner, his second goal of the season. Cumberland led 1-0 and 2-1 in the match, but St. Catharine equalized in the 16th and 84th minutes to force extra time, the ninth 10th overtime match for CU in 30 contests under head coach Kyle Smith.
The Bulldogs (4-4-1, 2-1-0 Mid-South) won their third straight outing and are 4-2-1 in their last six matches with the victory over the Patriots (5-3-0, 2-1-0).
Elliott Goodwin put Cumberland ahead in the seventh minute, scoring just inside the right post on a free kick from Armstrong, but SCC’s Marvin Wesselburg squared the match in the 16th minute on an assist from Bradley Wilson.
Armstrong was on the receiving end in the 58th minute from Alex Marr and Marty Owens, but again the Patriots found the back of the net, with Ashley Wilson heading in a corner kick by Wesselburg.
Cumberland keeper Ian Hamilton posted four saves, while SCC’s CJ Powell made nine saves and the Patriots cleared another ball off the line.
The Bulldogs play at home again Wednesday at 3 p.m. against the University of the Cumberlands before hitting the road for matches at the University of Pikeville and Lindsey Wilson.
