Panthers Held Scoreless in Doubleheader

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team couldn’t get anything going offensively Thursday, and the result was a pair of shutout losses to Corning Community College. Playing in Corning, the Panthers lost by final scores of 8-0 and 15-0, with both games shortened to five innings. Tompkins Cortland is now 2-20 on the season. Corning improves to 10-6 overall and 18-3 in Region III.

GAME 1: Corning 8, Tompkins Cortland 0 (5 innings)

The Panthers struck out 12 times and didn’t manage a hit until the fifth inning. By the time the game ended, Tompkins Cortland had put just five balls in play, with two in the last inning resulting in hits.

Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.), who was the only Panther to not strike out at least once, broke up the Corning no-hit bid with s single in the fifth. Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) had the only other hit for the Panthers.

GAME 2: Corning 15, Tompkins Cortland 0 (5 innings)

Corning changed pitchers for game two, but the result was the same. The Panthers again were limited to 2 hits while striking out 10 times. Jordan Robinson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had a double for the team’s lone extra-base hit on the day. Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) had the team’s other base hit.

The Panthers end the year with a weekend road trip, playing at Genesee Community College Saturday and at Erie Community College Sunday.

Thursday, April 28, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team couldn’t get anything going offensively Thursday, and the result was a pair of shutout losses to Corning Community College. Playing in Corning, the Panthers lost by final scores of 8-0 and 15-0, with both games shortened to five innings. Tompkins Cortland is now 2-20 on the season. Corning improves to 10-6 overall and 18-3 in Region III.

GAME 1: Corning 8, Tompkins Cortland 0 (5 innings)

The Panthers struck out 12 times and didn’t manage a hit until the fifth inning. By the time the game ended, Tompkins Cortland had put just five balls in play, with two in the last inning resulting in hits.

Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.), who was the only Panther to not strike out at least once, broke up the Corning no-hit bid with s single in the fifth. Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) had the only other hit for the Panthers.

GAME 2: Corning 15, Tompkins Cortland 0 (5 innings)

Corning changed pitchers for game two, but the result was the same. The Panthers again were limited to 2 hits while striking out 10 times. Jordan Robinson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had a double for the team’s lone extra-base hit on the day. Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) had the team’s other base hit.

The Panthers end the year with a weekend road trip, playing at Genesee Community College Saturday and at Erie Community College Sunday.

Panthers Swept in Home Finale

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The final home date of the season for the Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team turned out to the same as most of the previous ones: the team did some positive things, but not nearly enough of them. Hosting Finger Lakes Community College Wednesday the Panthers dropped both ends of the doubleheader, 20-7 and 13-5, to fall to 2-18 on the season. Finger Lakes is now 14-16 overall and 12-10 in Region III.

GAME 1: Finger Lakes 20, Tompkins Cortland 7 (5 innings)

After a disastrous top of the first inning that included three errors by the Panthers and ten runs by Finger Lakes, the Panthers showed their resolve in the bottom of the frame. Quincy English (Lehman Alternative Community School/Ithaca) and Jordan Robinson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) both singled and scored, as did Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) later in the inning. Trailing 10-3 after one, the defense again let the team down, committing two more errors while the Lakers scored three in the top of the second to move ahead 13-3.

In the bottom of the frame, English blasted her third home run of the season, a long drive well past the 200-foot fence in left-center. The shot made the score 13-4 at the end of two, and after the teams traded single runs in the third and two runs each in the fourth, the score stood at 16-7 heading into the fifth. The Lakers tacked on four runs in the fifth, again aided by a pair of errors, making the score 20-7. For the first time in the game for either team, the Panthers were held scoreless in the bottom of the fifth to end the game due to the run-rule with a final score of 20-7.

Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) had a perfect day at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a double and a walk. English, Robinson, and Serowik each went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.) took the loss in the circle, tossing the complete game. Of the 20 runs allowed by Winters, only seven were earned runs.

GAME 2: Finger Lakes 13, Tompkins Cortland 5 (6 innings)

The Panthers got on the board first, with English crossing the plate after an infield hit by Winters in the top of the first inning. In the bottom of the first, the Lakers had another fast start, this time scoring five runs to lead 5-1 heading to the second. In the second, Tompkins Cortland rallied with three runs, with all three runs coming with two outs. English delivered the first clutch hit, a two-run single. Robinson followed with a single of her own to score English and make it a one-run game. For the first time all afternoon, the Panthers were able to keep the Lakers off the scoreboard in the bottom of the second, keeping the deficit at 5-4 moving to the third.

Winters led off the third with a single, moved to second on a groundout, and came in to score and tie the game on a double by Beaver. The deadlock remained until the bottom of the inning when the Lakers scored three times to reclaim the lead at 8-5. Over the next three innings the Panthers could manage just one baserunner, a walk in the sixth inning. Meanwhile, the Lakers put four on the board in the fourth and ended the game by the run-rule with a single run in the sixth.

Winters had a solid game at the plate, going 2-for-3. Beaver again reached base every plate appearance, going 1-for-1 with two walks. English went 1-for-3 while scoring in two and driving in two others.

The visiting Hornets came back to take game two, 18-9. The results move Tompkins Cortland’s record to 1-7 on the season while Broome is now 1-5.

GAME 1: Tompkins Cortland 14, Broome 6 (5 innings)

After Broome scored three times in the top of the first, the Panthers answered with three of their own in the bottom of the frame. Jordan Robinson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) provided the big blow, a two-run homer to get the Panthers on the board. A single run in the third was followed by two more in the third to make the score 6-3. Broome rallied to tie the score in the top of the fourth, but the bats remained hot for the Panthers. Three hits and an error helped the home team regain the lead with two runs in the bottom of the fifth, and after shutting the Hornets out in the top of the sixth, six Panthers came in to score in the bottom of the frame, the last three on a bases-loaded triple by Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.).

Winters had a big game, going 4-for-5 with four RBI at the plate and earning the win in the circle with three strike outs over the full six innings. Haylee Hennessy (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton) was a perfect 4-for-4 with a pair of RBI and a pair of runs scored. Robinson finished 2-for-4 with four RBI and Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) and Quincy English (Lehman Alternative Community School/Ithaca) also had two hits.

GAME 2: Broome 18, Tompkins Cortland 9 (6 innings)

The second game was a see-saw battle from the start. The Panthers opened the scoring in the top of the first, rallying with two outs to score take the lead. Broome responded in the bottom of the inning to tie the score at 1-1. Tompkins Cortland reclaimed the lead in the second when English drilled a pitch over the fence for a two-run homer. Robinson followed with a triple and then scored on groundout by Winters, making the score 4-1. An inning later, Broome plated five runs to move ahead 6-4 at the end of three innings. Again, the Panthers responded. Leading off in the top of the fourth, English went deep again, becoming the seventh player in Panther history to hit two home runs in the same game. A pair of hits followed by a two-run single from Beaver put the Panthers up 7-6, but the Hornets answered to tie the score in the bottom of the fourth.

For the fourth time in the game, the Panthers took the lead in the fifth inning, scoring two runs with another two-out rally to lead 9-7. Broome moved back in front with three runs in the bottom of the inning, and then put together a big eight-run rally in the sixth to end the game due to the run rule.

English finished another big day with a 3-for-4 game, driving in three with her two homers. Winters and Beaver each also went 3-for-4, each driving in two runs. Robinson scored twice while going 2-for-3 at the plate.

The Panthers play at #2-ranked Herkimer College Saturday before returning home Sunday to take on Niagara County Community College.


Panthers Drop Tight Doubleheader

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team came oh-so-close to picking up its first win of the year Wednesday, but in the end, the Panthers dropped both ends of a doubleheader with Cayuga Community College, 7-4 and 6-5. The Panthers are now 0-6 on the season while Cayuga improves to 7-4-1.

The game opened with Cayuga scoring in the top of the first, but the Panthers tied things up in the second when Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) singled and then came around to score on a double by Quincy English (Lehman Alternative Community School/Ithaca). The 1-1 deadlock held until the bottom fourth, when Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon) drilled the first home run of her career – a three-run opposite field shot that put the Panthers up 4-1 at the end of the fourth.

The lead wouldn’t last, as the first four batters Cayuga send to the plate in the fifth would come around to score, putting the Spartans up 5-4. While the Panthers couldn’t manage to plate another run, Cayuga added single runs in the sixth and seventh to push the final margin to 7-4.

English finished game one with three hits, one more than she had totaled in the first four games of the year. Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) went 2-for-4 while Serowik finished 1-for-3 with three RBI. Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.) tossed the complete game, striking out seven.

Batting first in game two, the Panthers took advantage of a pair of Cayuga errors to jump out to a 2-0 lead. Like the first game, Tompkins Cortland’s lead wouldn’t last. In the bottom of the first, the Panthers committed four errors to help Cayuga score half a dozen to lead 6-2.

Neither team would score until the fourth, when Serowik led off with a double and came around to score on a single by English. A pair of Cayuga errors let English come around and score, pulling the Panthers within two at 6-4.

The deficit would be cut in half two innings later, when English led off with a single, moved to third on an error, and then came in to score on a fly ball from Rachel Bitjeman (Liberty H.S./White Sulpher). Trailing by one, the Panthers sent the heart of the lineup to the plate in the seventh, but couldn’t scratch across the tying run.

English had another big game, going 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored. After a long first inning, Winters settled down in the circle, shutting the Spartans out over the final five innings. Just one of the runs allowed in game two was earned, and she finished with three strike outs.

The Panthers return to the diamond Thursday, hosting SUNY Broome at 3 p.m.

Panthers Swept by Mohawk Valley

Sunday, April 10, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team showed signs of improvement Sunday, but still came out on the short end of a pair of games with Mohawk Valley Community College. Playing at Cornell University, the Panthers lost by scores of 14-3 and 6-2 to drop to 0-4 on the season. Mohawk Valley improves to 4-10 with the sweep.

The Panthers had an early lead in the opener. After allowing a run in the top of the first, Tompkins Cortland took advantage of a pair of Mohawk Valley errors to plate two runs on RBI by Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) and Quincy English (Lehman Alternative Community School/Ithaca). The Hawks answered with two in the second and three more in the third. Tompkins Cortland cut into the deficit with an RBI double by Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.) in the third to make it 6-3. Any hopes of a comeback were dashed in the fourth as the Hawks scored seven runs to take a commanding lead. The Panthers couldn’t respond, and after a tack-on run in the fifth by Mohawk Valley, the final score was 14-3.

Morse and Winters each went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Winter took the loss in the circle, victimized in part by a defense that helped to allow eight unearned runs in her five innings. The freshman struck out four.

Game two was tight the whole way. After both teams went scoreless over the first two innings, Mohawk Valley broke through in the third, again taking advantage of sloppy defense by the Panthers to score two runs on just one hit. In the Panthers’ third, Morse led off her second double of the game. After Winters moved her to third, Abbey Beaver (Sherburne-Earlville H.S./Sherburne) drove her in with a single to cut the score to 2-1. The tying run came in the fifth, with Emma Augustine (Ellenville H.S./Ellenville) reaching on an error and eventually coming around to score on a double from Caitlin Serowik (Marathon H.S./Marathon), making it 2-2 heading into the Hawks’ at bats in the fifth. Three straight singles, combined with a pair of stolen bases, allowed the Hawks to score twice to lead 4-2. Mohawk Valley put two more on the board in the sixth, and when the Panthers couldn’t answer, the final was 6-2.

Morse finished game two 3-for-3 while Augustine went 2-for-3 and reached base each time up. Winters threw another complete game, allowing just two earned runs over six innings.

Next on the schedule for the Panthers is a home doubleheader with Cayuga Community College Tuesday.

Panthers Swept in Season Opener

Saturday, April 02, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College Softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team opened the season Saturday, hosting Columbia-Greene Community College for a doubleheader. The day started well for the Panthers, with the home team taking an early lead in game one, but by the time play ended Columbia-Greene had taken both games, 9-3 and 21-2. While the games were the first of the year for Tompkins Cortland, Columbia-Greene’s record now stands at 6-10.

The high point of the day came early for the home team. Trailing 1-0 in the third inning of the opener, Victoria Morse (Newark Valley H.S./Ithaca) led off the frame with a single. Two outs later Jordan Robinson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) drew a walk, bringing Kassandra Winters (Sayre Area H.S./Sayre, Penn.) to the plate. The freshman delivered with a double to deep right center, scoring both Morse and Robinson to put the Panthers ahead 2-1. The lead lasted until the fourth inning, when Columbia-Greene plated four runs. The Twins added a run in the sixth, which the Panthers answered with a score in the bottom of the frame, and then put it away with three in the seventh.

Game two was a different story, with Columbia-Greene putting it out of reach early. While the Panthers were being held scoreless in the first three innings, Columbia-Greene scored eight times in the first, nine times in the second, and twice more in the third. Tompkins Cortland finally got on the board with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings, but it was too little and too late for the Panthers.

The Panthers hope to get on track Tuesday with a home doubleheader against Cayuga Community College.
