McKENZIE -- Cumberland University dropped a hard-fought decision Thursday night at Bethel University, falling just short at the end of each set in a 3-0 loss to the Wildcats.

Karli Collins led the Bulldogs with eight kills and Jaclyn Rodriguez posted a team-best 13 digs. Cumberland stayed within striking distance or led in each set, but the Wildcats eventually prevailed in each instance, winning 25-22, 25-23 and 25-22.

"I really thought our team played very well, especially since it's so early in the season and we are playing a good many young players," head coach Dwayne Deering said. "Bethel is a very good team and we were right in each set. We didn't play the key points well and that was the difference in the match. We just have to learn how to close out the match."

Cumberland plays at Trevecca Nazarene next Tuesday at 6 p.m. before returning home September 22 against Martin Methodist at 6 p.m.
