Cumberland remained No. 1 for the third straight week in the NAIA Women’s Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 Poll and were ranked third in the Women’s Soccer Modified Ratings Percentage Index (MRPI) released Wednesday by the national office.

The Bulldogs remained undefeated at 12-0-1 with last Friday’s 4-0 victory over Georgetown College, the first match for the club in almost two weeks after a rainout on October 7. CU has outscored its opponents this season, 67-5, including 50-2 in Mid-South Conference action

Cumberland’s only blemish this season was a 1-1 draw versus William Carey on September 5, but the club has won 11 straight matches since then.

CU faces Asbury University at home Thursday at 2 p.m. and finishes the home schedule on Monday against seventh-ranked Lindsey Wilson in a makeup of the Oct. 7 rainout. The Bulldogs still must travel to No. 6 Northwestern Ohio on November 3 before taking part in the Mid-South Conference Championships.

Cumberland was ranked No. 1 in the initial MRPI released three weeks ago but dropped to third in the second edition of the MRPI on Wednesday. William Carey is No. 1 with Embry-Riddle second.

The MRPI consists of the team’s modified winning percentage, their opponents’ winning percentage and the cumulative ratings points from the NAIA Women’s Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. Each of the three values has a weighted percentage calculated in the MRPI. The MRPI modifies the value of home/away/neutral results and adds more value for games against opponents ranked in their respective national poll.

The MRPI, which began in 2010, selects the at-large qualifying teams and seeds the 32-team national championship field. The third and final MRPI will be announced on November 16.

Kaitlin Phillips leads Cumberland past Union

Posted on 16 September 2014 by Allen


Kaitlin Phillips scored in the 14th minute and Shauna Gilpin posted a goal and an assist, as eighth-ranked Cumberland recorded its third victory in five days with a 2-0 win Monday night over Union University in Jackson, Tenn.

The Bulldogs moved to 5-0-1 on the season with five of the matches away from home over the last 11 days. CU has registered road victories over the University of Mobile, Campbellsville University, 17th-ranked Brenau University and Union and a draw versus No. 9 William Carey since September 5.

Phillips netted her second goal in three outings with a shot low and left from inside the six-yard box on an assist from Gilpin in the 14th minute. Gilpin put in an Emily Shires rebound in the 21st minute for her sixth goal of the year.

Cumberland posted a 17-10 advantage in shots and forced Union keeper Kristen Francis into five saves, while CU goalie Lindsay Kitson collected two saves in her third shutout of the season, all in the last four matches.

The Bulldogs face seventh-ranked Davenport University on Friday in Columbia, Ky. The Panthers won 3-2 in overtime over Cumberland in the Round of 16 in last year’s NAIA National Championships.
