CUMBERLAND â Thereâs no place like home. And for Cumberland, which played eight of its first nine games of the season (two of them non-league contests in Massachusetts and one an Injury Fund non-leaguer) on the road, Wednesday afternoonâs Division I showdown against La Salle in the friendly confines of Tucker Field was certainly a welcomed breath of fresh air.
