Shattuck earns MSC Defensive Player of the Week honors
Oct 31, 2012 12:00 am
Cumberland’s Sully Shattuck was named the Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after making three saves in a shutout against Shawnee State.
The Huntsville, Ala., native recorded his first clean sheet of the season in Saturday’s 1-0 victory versus Shawnee, CU’s fifth straight win. Shattuck has allowed just four total goals during the five-game stretch, which moved the Bulldogs from last place in the league to a tie for fourth in the final regular season standings.
Cumberland is the No. 5 seed in the conference tournament that begins Saturday, with CU traveling to Campbellsville. This season, Shattuck ranks sixth in the Mid-South Conference in saves (59) and goals against average (1.92).
Cumberland was 6-8-1 overall, 4-5-0 in the Mid-South, before Monday’s nonconference match at Union University.
Phillips' golden goal gives CU ladies 1-0 victory
JACKSON – A high-arching shot from 30 yards by sophomore Kaitlin Phillips fell just under the cross bar at the far post for a golden goal, giving Cumberland a 1-0 overtime victory over Union University on Monday evening at the Smith Soccer Complex.
The two teams remained scoreless through regulation, though the Bulldogs (15-2-0) controlled possession for much of the second half, challenging Union keeper Emily Waggoner into four saves. CU outshot NCAA Division II Union, 13-9, in the match, with just one Union (7-9-2) shot reaching CU goalie Lindsay Kitson.
Sophomore Shauna Gilpin assisted on the first goal of the season for Phillips, who had 10 assists entering the contest. The Bulldog defense posted its 10th shutout of the season in the win and the unit has allowed just 10 goals all season.
Cumberland will open play in the Mid-South Conference Championships at home on Saturday at 11 a.m. against Shawnee State. With the victory the Lady Bulldogs would advance to the semifinals and finals in Columbia, Ky., on Nov. 7-8.
Mason's late score gives CU men 1-0 victory
Harry Mason scored in the 81st minute to give Cumberland a 1-0 victory over Shawnee State in a match the Bulldogs dominated statistically on Saturday in men’s soccer action at Lindsey Donnell Stadium-Kirk Field.
The Bulldogs (6-8-1, 4-5-0 Mid-South) won their fifth consecutive match overall and have moved from dead last in the conference to a tie for fifth in the final regular season standings. CU will travel to Campbellsville for a quarterfinal match in the conference tournament Saturday.
Cumberland outshots the Bears, 23-8, in the match, including 15-5 in the second half, but was unable to crack the scoring column until Mason’s unassisted score in the 81st minute. The match was a very physical outing, with six yellow cards handed out and 29 total fouls called between the two teams.
CU keeper Sully Shattuck made three saves in net for the Bulldogs, while Shawnee goalies Thomas Carbonari and Jordan Cross combined for eight saves.
