LEBANON, Tenn.--Robbie Lyons scored to give the Phoenix the lead at the half and Brima Kamara and Cathal Coyne buried second half goals to get a 3-1 win over Lindsey Wilson at Lindsey Donnell Stadium. 

Cumberland (4-1-1, 1-0-1 MSC) ended a four match losing streak to the Blue Raiders and pick up their first conference win of the season. Cumberland will play host to Freed-Hardeman on Wednesday to end a four-match home stand at 3:00 p.m.

In a first half with few opportunities, Cumberland found a gap in the Lindsey defense and passed the ball from Edvin Grevskott to Kam Stanley to Brima Kamara to Lyons who finished at the net for the early lead.
Lindsey had a few opportunities in the first half that keeper Jacob Forester made four saves in the first half to keep the Blue Raiders scoreless at the break. 

The Phoenix tacked on their second goal in the 57th minute as Cathal Coyne made a long pass to Kamara. Kamara was able to get behind the back line of Lindsey Wilson for a one-on-one opportunity with the keeper. He made a move to the left to get around him and score the goal into an empty net. 

The Blue Raiders cut the deficit when Forester was called for a foul in the box giving Lindsey Wilson a penalty kick. Alexander Koziolezk converted the PK in the 75th minute. 

Moments later, on a corner, Lyons played the ball into the box where it found Coyne who was able to put it in the back of the net for the 3-1 advantage.

Cumberland would hold on for the rest of the match without allowing a shot on goal in the second half.
