CU hosts Campbellsville Oct. 28
PORTSMOUTH, OH -- Junior Elliot Goodwin netted a pair of goals and eighth-ranked Cumberland overcame a sluggish start to post a 2-1 victory over Shawnee State in men's soccer action Saturday.
The Bulldogs (15-0-0, 6-0-0 Mid-South) remained perfect on the season despite allowing a goal for the first time in over 300 minutes of action.
The Bears (5-10-0, 2-4-0) took the lead in the 21st minute when Martyn Sayer assisted on Caspar Nolte's score, the first goal by an opponent in 304:58 against Cumberland.
Shawnee State continued to lead until late in the opening half when Goodwin equalized unassisted in the 40th minute, his fifth goal of the year.
The Macclesfield, England, native posted the game-winner in the 62nd minute, again unassisted.
Bennet Strutz collected his 14th win of the season in net for the Bulldogs, making one save, while Shawnee State's Corey Huneke made four saves.
Cumberland outshot the Bears, 18-12, in the match, including 13-5 in the second half.
The Bulldogs host Campbellsville University Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.
