LEBANON, Tenn. – Rebecca Holloway and Haley Stevens each posted a hat trick and Mariah Aplin handed out three assists, as 15th-ranked Cumberland scored three times in the first seven minutes and never looked back in a 10-0 victory over the University of Pikeville in women’s soccer action here Friday at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.

The Phoenix (13-2-0, 4-1-0) netted five goals in the first 19 minutes and scored twice more late in the first half for a 7-0 lead at intermission. If not for some good goalkeeping by Pikeville’s Erica Burkhardt and bad luck for CU, which hit the crossbar once and the post twice, the match may have been worse, with Cumberland registering a 44-0 advantage in shots, including 25 on frame.

Cumberland got the scoring started quickly, with Holloway firing a long shot from near the right edge of the 18-yard box into the upper right corner of the net just 82 seconds into the match off a corner kick.

In the fifth minute Arden Butler’s pass to Aplin led to a point-blank shot that was saved by Burkhardt, but Stevens picked up the rebound at the back post for her first goal of the outing.

Stevens scored again less than two minutes later, this one on a feed from Jennifer Segura, and the Phoenix led 3-0 at the 6:35 mark of the opening half.

Stevens assisted on the first of two straight goals by Savannah Moreland, sliding a ball through the middle. Moreland’s shot from the penalty spot was low and right, past a diving Burkhardt in the 11th minutes.

Moreland finished a corner kick from Holloway in the 19th minute, a beautiful header in the middle of the goal, extending the CU advantage to 5-0.

Holloway netted her second goal of the match in the 31st minute, booting in a rebound off an Emma Campbell shot, and Campbell’s cross to the right hit Autumn Copeland in stride for a great goal in the 39th minute, giving the Phoenix a 7-0 lead at the break.

Cumberland posted 24 shots in the second half, many directly into the arms of Burkhardt and Nancy Nolasco, but Aplin hit the crossbar and Moreland and Kaitlin Kehrer each nailed the left post during the period.

Aplin assisted on two straight goals in the middle of the half, feeding Segura in the middle for a shot low and left in the 61st minute. Less than four minutes later Stevens finished her hat trick with a header at the front post on another cross from Aplin.

Holloway ended the scoring in the match with a blast from the top of the box in the 83rd minute, her 19th goal of the season.

The Phoenix end the regular season home schedule Sunday with a Noon match-up against Shawnee State.
