LEBANON, Tenn. – Rhianne Parsons netted a career-best four goals and Simone Quinn two scores in 25th-ranked Cumberland’s 10-0 victory over Shawnee State on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference Championships at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.

The Bulldogs (15-2-0) advance to Wednesday’s semifinals for a 2:30 p.m. match against the winner of tonight’s Campbellsville University-Bluefield College game. CU won its ninth straight match overall and defeated the Bears for the second time in seven days by a combined score of 17-0.

Parsons got the scoring started for the Bulldogs with an unassisted goal in the 10th minute, a shot from the top of the box past SSU (8-11-0) keeper Emily Kuehn. The CU junior flicked in a cross from Shauna Gilpin at the near post in the 12th minute for a quick 2-0 advantage.

Quinn scored on a corner kick from Taylor Nay in the 25th minute before Kelsey Langille added to her nation-leading goal total with an unassisted tally less than two minutes later. Parsons scored again from distance at the 34-minute mark and Quinn added her second goal just before the half on a long free kick, with Nay assisting on both scores.

Parsons registered her final score on a penalty kick less than three minutes into the second half before Nay connected with Langille in the 51st minute for Nay’s fourth assist of the match.

Nay found the back of the net unassisted in the 58th minute and freshman Meaghan Lyons added the final score for the Bulldogs on an assist from Beth Morgan in the 62nd minute. Cumberland outshot the Bears, 25-4, and CU goalie Lindsay Kitson registered her 11th shutout of the year with one save.
