Mason scores 5 for CU soccer

LEBANON -- Sophomore Harry Mason scored five goals, four in the second half, as Cumberland downed Kentucky Wesleyan 6-4 in men's soccer action Wednesday at the CU Soccer Field.

The Bulldogs (4-4-1) stopped a two-match losing streak with the victory but did it the hard way, giving up a goal in the first two minutes of the match but then scoring the next three, only to watch the Panthers (2-7-0) knot the match at three.

Mason, a native of England, then scored twice in 52 seconds to put CU ahead for good. He added the final goal of the match after KWC pulled within one later in the second half.

Greenbriers Eric Clark scored the other goal for Cumberland, beating KWC goalie Nick Snyder low and left into the sidenet in the seventh minute.

The Bulldogs of coach Jeff Loucks play Saturday at Lyon College and returns home Saturday, Oct. 8, to take on Oakland City University at 1 p.m.
