In the 2013 Season opener, the Dukes scored two late first-half goals and then added another later in the second half to complete a 4-2 win over Delaware County Community College. Freshmen Kevin Benitez and AJ Gazzara scored two goals apiece to propel Cumberland to 1-0 to start this season. Late in the first half, Benitez played a beautiful ball over the head of the opposing goalie to tie the score at 2. Just minutes later, Gazzara scored his second goal of the game to put the Dukes up 3-2 just before the break. Later in the second half, Benitez put in his second game off of a crafty assist from freshman Nathan Fuller to seal the deal for Cumberland. The Dukes will be off for the next two weeks and will resume action on Tuesday Septemper 3rd when they host Region XIX opponent Ocean County College.
