LEBANON, Tenn. – Daniel Williams registered two goals and Josh Armstrong added a goal and an assist, as Cumberland scored twice in the first 15 minutes and never looked back in a 6-1 victory over Shawnee State in men’s soccer action Saturday at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.

Williams netted his 12th and 13th goals of the year for the Phoenix (6-2-1, 2-0-0 Mid-South) and Cumberland outshot the Bears, 19-4, in the victory. Williams scored less than three minutes into the match and again early in the second period.

Elliot Goodwin posted an unassisted goal in the 16th minute and Armstrong’s corner kick was headed in by Brian McNamara in the 38th minute. Three minutes later Marty Owens found Armstrong for a goal and CU took a 4-0 advantage to intermission.

Williams’ goal in the 59th minute came down the left side for a 5-0 lead, but the Bears (1-6-0, 0-1-0) got on the board in the 64th minute on Martyn Sayer’s free kick from the top of the box. Alex Marr netted a goal in the 84th minute for the Phoenix, his second of the season, to finish off the scoring in the match.

SSU goalkeeper Cody Hartong allowed four goals and made four saves in the first half while Brandon Pfeiffer collected three saves in the second period. CU’s Bennet Strutz made just one save.

Cumberland begins a three-match road swing on Tuesday at 19th-ranked Bryan College before heading to the University of the Cumberlands next Saturday.
