February 11, 2016

Jonathon Side after signing his letter of intent to play at Tompkins Cortland

The Tompkins Cortland men's soccer program has its first signed recruit from the high school class of 2016. Plattsburgh High goalkeeper Jonathon Side signed his NJCAA National Letter of Intent and will join the Panthers in the fall. Side was the starting goalkeeper for Plattsburgh, posting 11 shutouts his senior season while helping the Hornets win the New York State Class B Championship.

"Coach Maroney and I are looking forward to working with J.D.," said Men's Soccer Head Coach Andy Davis. "He's a skilled keeper who is good with his feet, and he comes from a winning program. We expect he will fit in nicely in our program."

"The Tompkins Cortland coaches made it clear that they cared about me as an individual and were more concerned about my needs than their own," said Side. "I'm very excited to continue my playing career at the college level and I look forward to being part of the Panthers family."

Head Coach

Andy DavisRegion III Co-Coach of the Year
2013

MSAC Coach of the Year
2005, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013

Coach Davis has completed ten seasons directing the TC3 men's soccer program, compiling a record of 124-59-9 and ten consecutive regional playoff appearances. The 2013 season ranks as one of the best in nation, as TC3 went undefeated during the regular season, winning another Mid-State Athletic Conference championship and advancing to the Region III championship game. Coach Davis was named the Region III Co-Coach of the Year and the MSAC Coach of the Year, and seven players were honored with all-conference, region, and/or all-American recognition.

the 2014 season was the latest chapter in what has been an amazingly successful book for Davis. After spending 2004 as the top assistant, Davis took control of the program in 2005. His first year saw the Panthers win the MSAC title, advance to the NJCAA Region III semifinals, and finish the year ranked 14th in the nation. The 2006 campaign saw a return to the NJCAA playoffs and a national ranking as high as eighth. In 2007 the Panthers again claimed the conference title and played their way to the regional semifinals. In 2008 TC3 posted a win over nationally-ranked Genesee in the opening round of the playoffs to again advance to the quarterfinals. The 2009 season saw the Panthers win two playoff games to advance to the Region III Final Four. In 2010, after winning another MSAC title, the team made it all the way to the Region III championship game. 2011 saw the Panthers again advance to the regional title game, posting a seven-game unbeaten streak along the way. A fourth MSAC Coach of the Year award and another Region III final four appearance came in 2012.

Coach Davis brings tremendous credentials to the program, both as a player and a coach. An all-state player at Binghamton High, he was an All-American and national player of the year while leading Herkimer County Community College to the 2000 national championship. He earned a full athletic scholarship to the University of Evansville (NCAA- Division I) before finishing his playing career at SUNY Cortland. As a Red Dragon, he helped the team to their first SUNYAC title in nearly a decade. Prior to coming to TC3, he served as an assistant coach at SUNY Cortland for two seasons, helping coach the team to SUNYAC titles both seasons.

The last three seasons, Coach Davis has worked with the Greater Binghamton Futbol Club, a member of the National Premier Soccer League. He serves as the assistant coach for the Thunder, which won the NPSL Keystone Conference in 2013.

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

TC3 soccer

It didn’t take long for things to heat up when the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team hosted Cayuga Community College on a crisp fall afternoon Wednesday. But by the time the final horn sounded, the Panthers were on the wrong side of a 3-2 score. The loss drops the Panthers to 2-2-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 7-6-2 overall. Cayuga improves to 8-4 overall and 4-1 in the MSAC.

The action started early, with the first score coming in the fifth minute of play and three goals being tallied before 13 minutes had ticked off the clock. The visiting Spartans jumped to the lead just 4:14 into play, but the Panthers answered seconds later. Nelson Pelton (Chazy H.S./Chazy) started the scoring play with a corner kick that found its way across the box to Daniel Lincoln (Marathon H.S./Marathon), who blasted it into the net to equal the score at 1-1 just 5:09 into the game. Cayuga regained the lead with a score two minutes later, and then made it 3-1 with a score with 26:45 left on the first half clock. Curtis Grant (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) cut the deficit to 3-2 with a goal late in the half, again off an assist from Pelton, but after the high scoring start to the game, neither team could find the net in the second half.

Goalie Corey Swarthout (Southside H.S./Elmira) recorded seven saves on the day.

A pair of scores by Evangelos Soumbassis (Lakeview/Melbourne, Australia) helped the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team to a 3-1 win at Corning Community College Wednesday. The victory evens the Panthers Mid-State Athletic Conference record at 1-1-1 while improving to 6-5-2 overall. Corning now stands at 3-7 overall and 0-4 in the MSAC.

The first score came just nine minutes into the action, with Darren Serrano-Griffiths (London, England) putting in a goal off an assist from Jacob Czapranski (Dryden H.S./Dryden).

Panthers Rally for Win

Saturday, October 03, 2015

TC3 soccer

A week ago, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team put together a big second-half rally, scoring three straight goals to force overtime. On Saturday, playing at Jamestown Community College, the Panthers again found themselves needing a second-half rally. And again, the Panthers delivered, this time coming home with a win after scoring three straight in the second half to beat Jamestown 3-2. The win gets the Panthers back to .500 with an overall record of 5-5-2 overall and 4-4-2 in Region III. Jamestown is now 2-10-2 overall and 2-6-1 in Region III.

The game was scoreless for the first 22 minutes before the home-standing Jayhawks got on the board. A penalty kick four minutes later gave Jamestown a 2-0 lead and put the Panthers in a first-half hole for the second straight week.

The score remained 2-0 for the rest of the half and for the first four minutes of the second half before Jacob Czapranski (Dryden H.S./Dryden) cut the lead in half with his first goal of the season. The sophomore waited just five minutes before netting his second goal of the year, tying the score at 2-2 with 35 minutes left in the game. The comeback was completed when the game-winner came from Darren Serrano-Griffiths (London, England) with just under ten minutes left on the clock.

Corey Swarthout (Southside H.S./Elmira) earned the win in goal with two saves.

Ormsby Hat-Trick Sparks Rally, But Panthers Fall in OT

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

TC3 soccer

A ferocious rally back from a 3-0 deficit in the second half saw the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team score three times to tie the game with less than two minutes left in regulation. After a scoreless first overtime, SUNY Adirondack scored the game-winning goal with 1:20 left in the second OT, sending the Panthers to a 4-3 defeat. The loss drops the Panthers to 4-5-2 overall and 3-4-2 in Region III. Adirondack, the #9-ranked team in the nation, improves to 8-1 overall and 7-1 in Region III.

Playing on a grass field for just the third time this season and first time in three weeks, the Panthers started slow. Adirondack took advantage, scoring twice in the first half and adding a third early in the second. The deficit stood at 3-0 for eight minutes before the comeback began. With 33:40 left in regulation, Migell Ormsby (DeWitt Clinton H.S./Kingston, Jamaica) got the Panthers on the board with his first goal. Five minutes later, Ormsby narrowed the lead to 3-2 with his second goal, and with 1:47 left on the clock, he completed his hat-trick and tied the game with his third goal. The score remained tied at the end of regulation and after the first ten-minute overtime, but the home team ended the game with just 80 seconds left to play.

Ormsby’s three goals matched his season total prior to Wednesday, and marked his first collegiate hat-trick. Darren Serrano-Griffiths (London, England) picked up a pair of assists, tying for the team lead with three on the season.

Goalies Corey Swarthout (Southside H.S./Elmira) and Kyle McCane (Churchville-Chili H.S./Churchville) split time in the net, each allowing two goals and recording four saves.

Saturday, September 19, 2015

The win evens the Panthers’ record 4-4-1 overall and 3-3-1 in Region III. Erie drops to 5-3 overall and 4-2 in Region III.

After a sluggish start, the Panthers got things moving in the right direction midway through the first half. With 27:18 left on the clock, Curtis Grant (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira) beat the Erie keeper from the left side for what proved to be the game-winner. The Panthers added some cushion just after halftime, when Brendan Griffiths (Niskayuna H.S./Niskayuna) played a cross that Grant directed to Darren Serrano-Griffiths (London, England), who scored to make it 2-0. Both Grant and Serrano-Griffiths now each have four goals on the season, tied for the team lead with Jason Anderson (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls).
