GEORGETOWN, Ky. – 14-ranked Cumberland women’s soccer scored three first half goals in a 3-0 victory over Georgetown College at Toyota Stadium Sunday afternoon.

Cumberland (12-3-0, 7-2-0 MSC) dominated for the opening kick, scoring quickly and not giving the Tigers any clean looks all match. The Phoenix fired off 20 shots with 11 on goal outshooting Georgetown. Gabby Jones and Brenna Swiger each scored a goal and an posted an assist in the match while Haley Stevens scored the first goal and Marie Bathe, Grace Morris, and Ao Yamada each added assists. 

The Phoenix took control of the match early as Brenna Swiger played the ball forward to Gabby Jones behind the entire Tigers back line forcing the GC keeper out of the box. Jones played the ball over to Haley Stevens for an easy empty net goal just three minutes into the match. 

Five minutes later, Grace Morris played a perfect long pass from the backline to Jones behind the Tigers backline. Jones had a one-on-one with the keeper and beat her for the goal and a 2-0 lead. 

In the 23rd minute, Marie Bathe crossed a ball to the back post that Brenna Swiger finished to extend the score to 3-0. 

Georgetown tightened up defensively and only held Cumberland to a few really good chances in the second half. One of those opportunities was a shot by Brenda Cernas that was saved by the Tigers defenseman Lani Irwin. 

Cumberland will have a huge road test in the final regular season match of the season against No. 7 Tennessee Southern on the road in Pulaski.
