LEBANON, Tenn. – Taylor Nay scored twice in the second half and sixth-ranked Cumberland dominated play from the outset, posting a 4-0 victory over St. Catharine College in the quarterfinals of the Mid-South Conference Women’s Soccer Championships here Friday at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.

The Bulldogs (14-2-1) advance to the tournament semifinals on Thursday, November 13 to face the winner of Friday night’s Campellsville University and University of Pikeville match.

Kaitlin Phillips scored in the third minute to give the Bulldogs an early advantage, receiving a cross from Olivia Chu just in front of the penalty spot. The senior gathered the pass and slid it past SCC keeper Emily Belt for a 1-0 edge.

Cumberland threatened the entire half but scored just the one goal, with Emily Shires hitting crossbar in eighth minute and Chu nailing right post in 19th minute.

Nay drilled a shot from near the penalty spot in the 51st minute after a cross from Shauna Gilpin, her 11th goal of the season. Nine minutes later Phillips crossed deep into the box. The ball was cleared by a St. Catharine defender, but Nay was waiting at the top of the box and her laser found the back of the net for a 3-0 advantage.

Savannah Keele posted the final goal of the Bulldogs in the 74th minute with a nice header off a cross from Phillips, Keele’s seventh score of the campaign.

Cumberland outshot the Patriots, 28-2, in the match, including 16-1 in the first half. Belt made eight saves in net for the Patriots (5-12-1), whose season ended with the loss.
