LEBANON -- Emily Shires, Savannah Keele, Shauna Gilpin and Kaitlin Phillips all posted two goals and an assist, as No. 3 Cumberland put on another dominating performance in a 12-0 victory over the University of Pikeville Saturday in Pikeville, Ky.

The Bulldogs (11-0-1, 5-0-0) have won 10 straight matches overall and outscored their opponents, 63-5, this season, including 43-0 in the last four conference outings.

Gilpin scored twice in the first half and Shires netted scores in both halves as well as assisting on the first goal of the match by Olivia Chu. Phillips assisted on Gilpin's first score and posted goals in both halves as well, while Keele registered an assist in the first half on Phillips' goal and scored twice in the final minutes of the match.

Taylor Nay also scored a goal and assisted on another, as did Chu, while Sammy Groves netted her sixth goal of the season and Caitlyn Casey recorded her first assist of the year.

The Bulldogs scored seven times in the first half, including an own goal off Pikeville's Kayla Robertson.

SCHEDULE CHANGE -- Tuesday's home game with No. 6 Lindsey Wilson has been canceled due to heavy rains in Middle Tennessee.

Cumberland plays again Oct. 17 against Georgetown College at 1 p.m. on Senior Day. The Bulldogs have won 10 straight matches overall since a Sept. 5 draw against William Carey and are 11-0-1 overall this season.
