LEBANON, Tenn. – Brian McNamara scored twice in the first half for 23rd-ranked Cumberland, but 11th-ranked Lindsey Wilson exploded for six goals over the final 55 minutes, including a hat trick by Tyler Collishaw, in a 6-2 win in men’s soccer action Friday night in Columbia, Ky.
The Phoenix (8-2-1, 1-1-1 Mid-South) had their six match unbeaten streak come to an end and played the final 22 minutes a man down after a second yellow card on Bakary Bagayogo. The Blue Raiders (7-1-0, 3-0-0) took advantage, adding two more goals in the last 20 minutes.
Cumberland goalkeeper Bennet Strutz faced 26 total shots from Lindsey Wilson and made eight saves.
The Phoenix started the match about as well as could have been expected, with McNamara heading in a cross from Markus Skraastad that hit the post and bounced in during the 10th minute. Nicholas Marcano was whistled for a foul in the box in the 17th minute and McNamara converted the penalty kick, his ninth goal of the year and sixth in the last four matches.
But a 39-second stretch late in the first half changed the complexion of the match, with the Blue Raiders tallying a pair of goals to even the score before intermission.
Yuta Yamamoto netted a goal unassisted in the 34th minute and Collishaw added his own PK just 39 seconds later after a foul on CU’s Jonathan Walderstrom.
Collishaw scored again in the 54th minute, this one on an assist from Andres Riquelme, and scores from Stephane Dasse and Marcano, both assisted by Mutaya Mwape, in the 67th and 70th minutes stretched the Lindsey Wilson lead to 5-2.
Collishaw put the final nail in the coffin with a goal in the 86th minute, this one from Israel Reyna, his fifth goal of the week in just his second match of the season.
Cumberland takes on Georgetown College next Friday at 2 p.m. at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field. The Phoenix play three of their last five matches of the year at home.
