LEBANON, Tenn. – Bradley Williams and Luke Wilson both scored in the final 20 minutes, but Erik Albarran’s score in the 80th minute was the game-winner for Bluefield College in a 4-3 victory over Cumberland in men’s soccer action Saturday in Bluefield, Va.

The Bulldogs (1-7-0, 0-5-0 Mid-South) lost their sixth straight match overall but showed a great deal of guile in the loss, erasing a two-goal deficit with less than 20 minutes to play before Albarran’s goal shortly after Wilson’s game-tying score.

Josh McCausland put Cumberland ahead with a goal in the ninth minute on an assist from Rodrick Zacharias, but Bluefield’s Andres Palacios knotted the match at one in the 29th minute on an assist from James Gunn.

Consecutive goals by Michael Callaghan in the 56th and 59th minutes, the second one on an assist from Gunn, put the Rams ahead, 3-1, but Williams scored in the 72nd minute with a helper from Tevonne Morris and Wilson’s goal in the 79th minute tied the match at three.

Less than a minute later Albarran netted the game-winner on an assist from Mouhamed Dieye.

The Bulldogs outshot Bluefield, 11-9, in the match, and Rams keeper Jefferson Watson made five saves in net for the victory. CU’s Sully Shattuck took the loss, posting two saves.

Cumberland plays at home Wednesday at 4 p.m. against Union College in the back end of a men’s and women’s doubleheader at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.
