BLUEFIELD, W.Va. -- Bluefield College’s women’s soccer team fell for just the second time in Mid-South Conference action with a 3-0 defeat to Cumberland (Tenn.) on Saturday at the East River Soccer Complex.

 

Cumberland (8-2-0, 4-1-0 MSC) used a pair of goals from NAIA Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, Kelsey Langille to secure their fourth shutout in the last five games. The 5-foot-4 attacker from Ardrossan, Alberta, ranks second in the NAIA in goals (22) and total points (46) and earned the national honor after scoring 10 goals in a trio of MSC games a week ago.

 

Bluefield (5-5-0, 1-2-0 MSC) received 10 saves from Kayla Richardson as the NCCAA top-15 scoring team only mustered 10 shots – five on target.

 

Cumberland got on the board five minutes from the break when Langille scored her first of the afternoon to give the hosts a 1-0 halftime lead.

 

At the break Cumberland held a decisive 7-2 lead in shots and a slight 1-0 edge in corner kicks.

 

Taylor Nay scored just three minutes after halftime as the visitors extended their lead to two (2-0).

 

Langille received a pass in the 74th minute to secure the 3-0 victory over the Rams in a game that saw three cautions and 13 whistles go against the winning side.

 

The Rams return to action on Thursday, Oct. 4, when they host the Tigers of Georgetown (Ky.) for a 1 p.m. Mid-South Conference kickoff at East River Soccer Complex. BC will look to rebound and continue to build on what has already been a record season through the first half of 2012 under Head Coach Chase Neidig.
