LEBANON, Tenn. – Tyler Watson and Daniel Williams recorded two goals apiece and 24th-ranked Cumberland jumped out to a seven-goal before registering an 8-3 win against Shawnee State in men’s soccer action Wednesday night in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Williams scored just 52 seconds into the match on assists from Brian McNamara and Jonathan Walderstrom en route to his first multi-goal outing since August 28 of this season. Watson followed with an unassisted score in the fifth minute and Cumberland (10-2-1, 3-1-1 Mid-South) was on its way.

The Phoenix added two more goals in the first half, the first from Bakary Bagayogo in the 22nd minute and the second by Daniel Picken in the 40th minute for a 4-0 CU advantage at intermission.

Watson assisted on the second goal of the match from Williams in the 59th minute and added an unassisted score of his own in the 68th minute for a 6-0 Phoenid lead.

The Bears (2-14-0, 0-5-0) netted all three of their goals in a six-minute stretch, starting with an unassisted score from Mitchell Patchett in the 74th minute. Bryce Romanello found the back of the net in the 75th minute on an assist from Shane Zimmerman and Alek Blevins recorded the final goal for SSU in the 79th minute from Hunter Miles.

Cumberland’s Sondre Risa posted the final score of the match unassisted with just six seconds remaining in the match. CU’s Bennet Strutz posted two saves in just over 65 minutes of action and Jake Yarbro added one save in the final 25 minutes.

Shawnee State goalkeeper Matthew Boreman made four saves in the first half and Zachary Smith added four saves in the final 45 minutes.

Cumberland hosts the University of Pikeville on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field, the next-to-last home match of the year for the Phoenix.
