Panthers Fall at Home

Friday, March 27, 2015

TC3 lacrosse

For the first time this season, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team walked off its own field with a loss Friday. After winning all three of its previous home games, including one game played at SUNY Cortland, the Panthers fell to Dean College (Mass.) by a final score of 9-5. The non-region game evens TC3’s record at 3-3 on the year Dean improves to 2-3.

After a scoreless first five minutes of the game, Dean led the rest of the way. The Bulldogs scored the first two goals before Ian Henrichsen (New Roots H.S./Freeville) got the Panthers on the board with a goal with 9.8 seconds left in the first quarter. Dean scored the lone goal of the second quarter to take a 3-1 lead into the half.

A goal in the first minute of the third quarter made it 4-1, but TC3 rallied with goals by Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown) and Brian Litzenberger (Cortland H.S./Cortland) to make it a one-goal game at 4-3 with 11:11 left in the third. The Panthers were within one goal for less than a minute, as Dean netted a score with 10:43 left to make it 5-3 followed by two more scores before the quarter ended. In the fourth, the teams traded scores twice, making the final 9-5.

Litzenberger ended the game with two goals and two assists while Velazquez had two goals and an assist. Wes Swanson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) added an assist for the Panthers.

Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) had 11 saves in goal for TC3.

Next up for TC3 is a Mid-State Athletic Conference game with Finger Lakes Community College Sunday. The game, originally scheduled to be played at Finger Lakes, will be played on the TC3 Turf at 1 p.m.

Win Streak Snapped at Monroe

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Heading into Wednesday’s game at Monroe Community College, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team had been on a roll. Since a season-opening 6-2 loss, TC3 had been scoring goals in bunches, outscoring the opposition by a combined total of 38-to-11 during a three-game winning streak. But Wednesday against the Tribunes, the offense struggled, managing just 10 shots on goal in a 7-5 loss. TC3’s record drops to 3-2 overall and 2-1 in Region III. Monroe improves to 3-3 overall and 3-2 in Region III.

The Panthers never led. Monroe scored in the third minute of play, but TC3 tied it at 1-1 with a goal by DaShawn White (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore). The Tribunes answered quickly to regain the lead at 2-1, a score that held until the end of the first quarter. In the second, TC3 again tied the game, this time with Brian Litzenberger (Cortland H.S./Cortland) netting the equalizer. A Monroe goal closed out the scoring in the half, making the score 3-2 at the break.

The home team was the first to find the net in the third quarter, extending the lead to 4-2 before Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown) got into the scoring column to pull the Panthers within one at 4-3 midway through the third. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the score would get no closer the rest of the way, as Monroe netted two straight to lead 6-3 early in the fourth. Brent Enslow (Harrisville H.S./Brooktondale) cut the deficit to 6-4, but a goal by Monroe with 2:27 left made it 7-4. Velazquez added his second goal with just over a minute left, but it wasn’t enough to spark a rally as the final horn sounded with the score 7-5.

TC3 goalie Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) was busy all afternoon, making 15 saves to keep the game close.

TC3 returns home Friday for a non-region game against Dean College (Mass.) at 6 p.m.


Panthers Win Third Straight

Saturday, March 21, 2015

TC3 lacrosse

After the grounds crew worked hard to get the field game-ready after some morning snow, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team went out and did some hard work of its own. The Panthers overcame an early two-goal deficit to post a 12-8 win over visiting County College of Morris Saturday. TC3 improves to 3-1 on the season with the non-region win. Morris, a Region XIX team out of New Jersey, is now 0-2.

After dominating from start to finish the last two times out, the Panthers found themselves in unfamiliar territory Saturday: trailing. The teams traded goals over the first six minutes of the second quarter, making the score 4-2, before TC3 caught on fire. Brian Litzenberger (Cortland H.S./Cortland) started the spree with a goal off an assist from DaShawn White (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore), and then White scored himself to tie the game at 4-4 with 7:26 left in the first half. Litzenberger gave TC3 its first lead the day with a goal with 6:44 left on the clock, and after Morris answered to tie the game at 5-5, White notched another goal to make it 6-5 with 4:09 left. Carter Mardiney (Rondout Valley H.S./Rosendale) capped the big quarter with a goal with 30 second left, making it 7-5 at the half.

The visiting Titans came out strong in the third quarter, scoring twice in the first five minutes to knot the game at 7-7. Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown) pushed the Panthers back in front, but Morris scored the last goal of the quarter to make the score 8-8 heading into the fourth quarter. The Panthers broke the game’s fifth tie with 12:47 left in the game, with Litzenberger netting the goal. Ninety seconds later Mardiney found the net to make it 10-8, and then Litzenberger made it 11-8 with 8:51 left in the game. While the TC3 defense was keeping Morris off the board in the fourth quarter, Mardiney closed out the scoring with a goal with 1:27 left to make it 12-8.

Litzenberger had a big day for the Panthers, scoring five goals to go with three assists. Mardiney had four goals, White had two goals and two assists, and Velazquez had a goal and an assist.

Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) went the distance in goal, posting 12 saves.

TC3 returns to Region III action this week, playing at Monroe Community College Wednesday.


Second Straight Win for Panthers

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

TC3 lacrosse

Playing at home for the first time this season, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team put up a second-straight dominant performance, beating Niagara County Community College Tuesday. TC3 is now 2-1 overall and 2-0 in Region III. It was the season-opener for Niagara.

The Panthers controlled play from the opening whistle. In the first quarter TC3 ripped off 20 shots, with Carter Mardiney (Rondout Valley H.S./Rosendale), Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown), and Wes Swanson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) each finding the net to make it 3-0 at the first break. The second quarter saw four more scores: two from Velazquez, one from Swanson, and one from Brian Litzenberger (Cortland H.S./Cortland). The halftime lead stood at 7-0 at the half, the second straight game the Panthers took a shutout into the second half.

The third quarter saw the lead grow with two goals by DaShawn White (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) and single scores by Swanson and Luke Stevenson (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca), making it 11-0 heading into the fourth quarter. Two more goals by Velazquez made it 13-0, but Niagara finally got on the board with 5:55 left in the game. A second Thunderwolves goal in the closing minutes made the final 13-2.

Velazquez led the Panthers with five goals. Litzenberger and Stevenson each had four points on a goal and three assists and Swanson scored three goals. White added an assist to his two goals and Matt Geisler (Pine Bush H.S./Pine Bush) came up from his defensive position to record two assists. Mardiney’s goal to open the game was the first score of the sophomore’s career.

Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) earned the win in goal, allowing no goals and recording seven saves over 50:45 of play. Andrew Shore (Monticello H.S./Monticello) finished the game in goal, recording a single save.

TC3 hosts County College of Morris Saturday at 1 p.m.


Record-Setting Win for TC3 Lacrosse

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

TC3 lacrosse

The Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team opened Region III play Wednesday with a record-setting performance, beating SUNY Broome 13-1 in a game played at the SUNY Cortland Stadium Complex. The near shutout set a new TC3 record for fewest goals allowed, besting the old mark of three goals allowed in a win over Cayuga Community College in 2013. The win evens TC3’s overall record at 1-1. It was the season-opener for Broome.

The Panthers started the scoring just 81 seconds into the game, with Brian Litzenberger (Cortland H.S./Cortland) finding the net. The score held at 1-0 after the first quarter, but it didn’t take long in the second for TC3 to tack on to its lead. Luke Stevenson (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) scored just one minute into the quarter. A pair of goals by DaShawn White (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) made it 4-0 with 2:10 left in the half, but the Panthers capped the quarter in style with a goal by Wes Swanson (Dryden H.S./Dryden) with 14 seconds left and a goal with one second left by Ian Henrichsen (New Roots H.S./Freeville).

The Panthers doubled the 6-0 halftime lead with six straight goals in the third quarter, including four by Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown) and additional goals from Litzenberger and Henrichsen. Broome finally got on the board with 16 seconds left in the quarter, making it 12-1 heading into the final quarter. Velazquez put in the game’s final goal early in the fourth before the Panthers slowed the down the attack.

Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) had six saves to earn the win in goal for TC3, with Andrew Shore (Monticello H.S./Monticello) also seeing time between the pipes.

Next up for the Panthers is a Tuesday date with Niagara County Community College. The game is scheduled for 4 p.m. at TC3.


Season Opener for TC3 Lacrosse

Sunday, March 08, 2015

Stepping on an outdoor field for the first time this year, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team opened the 2015 season Sunday with a non-region game at Union County College in New Jersey. After the three and a half hour bus ride, the Panthers dropped a 6-2 final to the Owls.

The Panthers scored in the first and fourth quarters, with Luke Stevenson (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) putting the first goal in with 3:55 left in the first quarter. The period ended with Union up 2-1, and the margin stood at 3-1 at the half. Another Union score in the third made it 4-1 heading into the final quarter. Two more Union goals and a TC3 score by Nick Velazquez (Middletown H.S./Middletown) made the final 6-2.

Eh Tha Dah (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) had 11 saves in goal for TC3.

The Panthers look to open Region III and Mid-State Athletic Conference Wednesday against SUNY Broome. The 6 p.m. game will be played at Cortland State.
