Lebanon Tenn.-- The Phoenix got off to a quick start versus Fisk on Tuesday and never looked back.
Freshamen Ben Siri and John Azar collectively registered eight goals and Marin Walsh recorded two more of his own in Tuesday’s game, helping lead the Phoenix (1-1) to a 14-1 victory over the Fisk Bulldogs(0-1).
The home team struck quickly on Tuesday, with a Goal by Martin Walsh off a penalty kick, 1:20 into the game. A goal from the Bulldogs Michael Chilton that was assisted from Christian Heffner tied the game 1-1, but that wasn’t holding the Phoenix back, especially for Siri who scored a pair of goals, one off an assist from Bakary Bagayoko, 11:46 into the first half, and another goal scored off an assist from John Azar, 15:07 in the first.
The Phoenix continued to dominate the first half by scoring four more times from Azar, Walsh, Kevin Pierce and a 20 yard missile from Tyler Watson, making the Phoenix lead over Fisk 7-1 at halftime.
The second half was more of the same for the Phoenix as a goal from Azar was scored six minutes into the second half, which was then followed up by another goal from Siri two minutes later. Both goals were assisted by Walsh, making the lead 9-1.
The lead didn’t slow Cumberland down as Azar and Brandon Gonzalez both scored off a penalty kick as well as Robin Windvogel scoring off an assist from Abdulkhalik Abdi, all in under 8 minutes into the second half. Siri later tacked on two more goals. First off an assist from Gonzalez and then a final one with three minutes left in the game which resulted in the 14-1 victory.
The Phoenix controlled the field by outshooting the Bulldogs 45-4, with 29 shots on goal to the Bulldogs one.
Cumberland is back on the road against Thomas University on August 31st at 11 a.m in Lawrenceville, Ga.
