Four Phoenix named to MSC Men's Soccer All-Conference
L-R: Brima Kamara, Robbie Lyons, Kam Stanley, Cathal Coyne

LEBANON, Tenn.--Robbie Lyons, Brima Kamara, and Kam Stanley each earn First Team All-Conference accolades while Cathal Coyne was named to the Second Team, released by conference officials on Tuesday. 

Lyons had a tremendous season for his first year with Cumberland posting six goals and seven assists for 19 points. Lyons’ six goals was third on the team while he was tied for the team lead in assists. His six goals came in a stretch of seven games when he scored one a game outside of the 3-0 win over Freed-Hardeman. He had two performances where he had multiple assist games against Union University and on the road at Pikeville. 

In his first year with the Phoenix, Brima Kamara earned First Team All-Conference honors after playing an important role in Cumberland’s offense. Kamara totaled eight goals for Cumberland, just one goal behind the team’s highest. He scored three goals during Cumberland’s mid-season four game winning streak. He led the team in game-winning goals this season. 

Kam Stanley was the leading goal scorer for Cumberland in 2022 posting nine goals en route to First Team All-Conference honors. He was named the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week in consecutive weeks scoring seven goals in the stretch of four games including a hat-trick on the road at Pikeville. Stanley added four assists this year to finish with 22 points. He scored two game-winners this season for CU against Freed-Hardeman and Bethel. 

Cathal Coyne started in every game for the Phoenix this season. As Cumberland’s defensive center back, Coyne helped his team to five shutout wins, allowing only 11 goals over the course of the season. Coyne recorded two goals and two assists, including an assist and insurance goal in a 3-1 win over Lindsey Wilson. This is Coyne’s first MSC All-Conference recognition.
