June 21, 2016

Sydney Rodriguez preparing to sign her letter of intent to play at Tompkins Cortland

All-City forward Sydney Rodriguez has signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to join the Panthers this fall. A four-year starter on varsity, Rodriguez racked up some impressive numbers while helping DeWitt Clinton High School finish as one of the top teams in the PSAL. As a senior she finished fifth in the league with 73 points (31 goals, 11 assists) in 14 games. Over the course of her four-year career she netted 67 goals while totaling more than 150 points for the Governors.  

"We are very enthusiastic to have Sydney sign with us," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach Bob Rice. "She comes to us with a different skill set than I have had the opportunity to coach. She is fit and focused, and has the ability to take players on one-on-one and finish the ball.  I can't wait to see the impact she will have on our games."

Newark Valley High's Briana Sokol will play soccer at Tompkins Cortland Community College. The three-time I.A.C. all star signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to join the Panthers in the fall.

"Briana is one of the most dynamic players we have added to the roster," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach Bob Rice. "She is a defender that can take free kicks, get in the box for headers, clear a ball, or dribble out and complete a pass to a target player. It's exciting as a coach to have a player that can do all of those things at the level we need."

A member of the National Honor Society and a four-year starter on varsity at Newark Valley, Sokol is a player who can help create a winning team culture. "With Bri we have a player who is talented and works very hard, both on and off the ball. She puts the team first, and I think she will set a positive example for her teammates," said Rice. "If every player works as hard as I anticipate Briana working we should be in good shape."

The third I.A.C. all-star to sign the NJCAA Letter of Intent to join the Panthers women's soccer program is Candor standout Angela Martone. A four-year starter for the Indians, Martone spent most of her high school career as a center midfielder, amassing 24 goals and 16 assists.

 

"Angela is a very crafty player and a great teammate," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach Bob Rice. "I don't think she realizes how much potential she has. I feel very fortunate to be getting a player and person like Angela. I think we are a great fit for her and I can't wait until the 2016 season."

 

A two-time first-team all-I.A.C. selection, Martone also played basketball and softball at Candor. In addition, she participated in the school musicals and both all-county and NYSSMA Chorus. "She brings such positive experiences to our program, from being a three-sport athlete, a good student in the classroom, and just a well-rounded individual," said Rice. "She is exactly what I look for in a recruit."

The Panthers women's soccer recruiting Class of 2016 added another all-star with the signing of Newfield High's Rhianna Mosher. The versatile Mosher will be a strong addition to Tompkins Cortland's lineup.

"Rhianna is a very interesting player because she can play anywhere on the field," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach Bob Rice. "She brings outstanding experience as an athlete, but I also really love that she is just a fun person to be around. She has a great attitude and the ability to joke and laugh one minute and be very serious the next. She gets it."

Mosher was a three-year starter for the Trojans, earning I.A.C. All Star honors twice. She was a three-sport athlete, captaining two of the teams. She also excelled off the field, being elected a class officer and inducted into the National Honor Society. "She is very mature for her age and I will look to her to help lead the other freshman," said Rice.

Candor High's Emily Potter has signed her NJCAA National Letter of Intent to play soccer at Tompkins Cortland Community College. She will join a defensive unit that was a big reason the Panthers finished 2015 ranked in the top 15 in the nation.

"We are thrilled to welcome Emily," said Tompkins Cortland Head Coach Bob Rice. "Emily is an anchor. She was the strength and stability in the back for a very good Candor team, and I fully expect her to step into the same role here."

Potter was a four-year varsity starter for the Indians, being named an I.A.C. All Star twice. She also was the I.A.C. Small School M.V.P. while helping the Indians to a conference title; just the kind of leadership that has Coach Rice excited. "Emily is a well rounded athlete and a great teammate," said Rice. "But probably my favorite thing about her is that her expectations for me are just as high as my expectations for her. She wants to be the best she can, and that attitude will help us get better as a program."

Graves Named All-American

December 10, 2015

NSCAA All-American Molly Graves

Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer player Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) has been named to the 2015 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Junior College Women’s Division III All-America second team. She was among the 24 players honored as All-Americans.

Graves, a freshman goalkeeper, posted six shutouts this season while compiling a goals against average of 0.99. She helped the Panthers to a record of 12-5-1, a Mid-State Athletic Conference co-championship, and an appearance in the Region III championship game.  

Graves was also named to the NSCAA North/East All-Region team, where she was joined by Panther teammates Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus), Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton), and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton), all sophomores. Forehand was a first-team all-region selection at defender while Blanchard and Clark were named to the second team at midfielder and defender, respectively.  

Blanchard, Clark, Forehand, and Graves Named All Region

November 4, 2015

NJCAA All-Region III Selections Blanchard, Clark, Forehand, Graves

Four Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer players have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region team. Sophomore Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) earned second-team honors for the second straight year, becoming the eighth player in program history to repeat as an all-region performer. Sophomores Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton) and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were joined by freshman Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) on the second team. The four selections tied for the most from any school, along with Herkimer College, SUNY Broome, and Genesee Community College. A total of 28 players were honored between first and second teams in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation.

Blanchard, a midfielder, had eight points this season on three goals and two assists. She scored the game-winner in two games, including the Panthers’ first playoff game. She is the first repeat all-region performer for the Panthers since the trio of Samijo Scheer, Kendra Wagstaff, and Paige McCarthy accomplished the feat in 2010 and 2011.

Clark and Forehand were recognized as defenders and Graves as a goalkeeper. The three helped the Panthers field one of the best defenses in the nation. Tompkins Cortland allowed 0.93 goals per game, the third best in that category in Region III and ninth best in the nation. The team posted eight shutouts in 19 games, and allowed more than two goals in a game just once.

Tompkins Cortland finished the year with a record of 12-5-2, including an undefeated mark of 5-0-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference, good enough to claim a conference co-championship. The team qualified for the Region III playoffs for the 11th straight year, advancing the Region III championship game for the first time in program history.

This also marks the 11th straight year Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the all-region team, and the tenth time during that span with multiple selections.

Panthers Season Ends in Regional Championship Game

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Playing for a regional title for the first time in program history, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team allowed a second-half goal that proved to be the difference in a 1-0 loss at Herkimer College Sunday. The Panthers, ranked #8 in the latest NJCAA national poll, saw its nine-game unbeaten streak snapped. The team ends the year with a record of 12-5-2. Herkimer, the top seed in Region III and the #2-ranked team in the nation, advances to the NJCAA national tournament with the win.

The game was scoreless through the first 45 minutes and well into the second. After Herkimer broke through with a goal in the 75th minute, the Panthers put together a late rush, but couldn’t find the net. Tompkins Cortland keeperMolly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) had another strong game in net, recording seven saves.

Following the game, sophomores Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were named to the all-tournament team. The game marked the end of the Panthers career for Blanchard, Forehand, and classmates Emma DeLisio (Onteora H.S./Woodstock), Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton), Rachel Bitjeman (Liberty H.S./White Sulphur), and Jenelle Milk (Greene H.S./Smithville). The group leaves having won more playoff games than any group of sophomores in program history.

Panthers Season Ends in Regional Championship Game

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Playing for a regional title for the first time in program history, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team allowed a second-half goal that proved to be the difference in a 1-0 loss at Herkimer College Sunday. The Panthers, ranked #8 in the latest NJCAA national poll, saw its nine-game unbeaten streak snapped. The team ends the year with a record of 12-5-2. Herkimer, the top seed in Region III and the #2-ranked team in the nation, advances to the NJCAA national tournament with the win.

The game was scoreless through the first 45 minutes and well into the second. After Herkimer broke through with a goal in the 75th minute, the Panthers put together a late rush, but couldn’t find the net. Tompkins Cortland keeperMolly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) had another strong game in net, recording seven saves.

Following the game, sophomores Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were named to the all-tournament team. The game marked the end of the Panthers career for Blanchard, Forehand, and classmates Emma DeLisio (Onteora H.S./Woodstock), Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton), Rachel Bitjeman (Liberty H.S./White Sulphur), and Jenelle Milk (Greene H.S./Smithville). The group leaves having won more playoff games than any group of sophomores in program history.


Panthers Top Genesee to Advance to Regional Final

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

TC3 soccer

For the first time in the history of the program, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team will play for the NJCAA Region III title. The Panthers advanced to the III-A championship game with a 2-1 win over Genesee Community College Tuesday. The Panthers will play at top-seed Herkimer College Sunday in the championship game.

Tuesday’s semifinal featured the Panthers and the Cougars in rematch of a regular season game on September 12 in Dryden. That game was won by Genesee 4-0 as the Cougars scored just six minutes into action and the Panthers never threatened. In the rematch, a pair of sophomores made sure the start was different. Just 3:27 into the game, Emma DeLisio (Onteora H.S./Woodstock) scored off an assist from Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus), putting the Panthers up 1-0. Despite Genesee out-shooting the Panthers 11-0 the rest of the half, the margin remained 1-0 at the break.

The second half saw the Panthers again come out strong, this time taking 8:44 before finding the net and making the score 2-0 on a goal by Kristin Dake (Lansing H.S./Ithaca) off an assist from DeLisio. The Cougars again responded with increased intensity, cutting the lead in half with a goal with 22:19 left in the game. It looked like the home team would complete the comeback minutes later when a handball in the box earned a Panther defender a red card and gave Genesee a penalty kick with 18:44 left. But, as she has been most of the season, Tompkins Cortland keeper Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) was up to the task, saving the shot and keeping the lead at 2-1. Playing a player short the rest of the way, Graves and the defense kept the goal empty and made winners of the Panthers.

With the win, Tompkins Cortland’s unbeaten streak extends to nine games while the overall record improves to 12-4-2. It also marks the first time in program history that the Panthers have won multiple playoff games in the same season. Genesee’s year ends with a record of 11-6.


Panthers Top Clinton 5-2 to Advance

Saturday, October 24, 2015

TC3 soccer

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team jumped ahead early Saturday and never looked back, beating Clinton Community College 5-2 in the opening round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The #5 seed Panthers now will take on #4 Genesee Community College in the semifinal round at 4 p.m. Tuesday in Batavia. The winner of that game will play for the Region III-A championship.

Playing with the wind in the first half, Tompkins Cortland took advantage early. Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) started the scoring, tracking down a loose ball after a corner kick and ripping it past the Clinton keeper for a 1-0 lead nine minutes into the game. Three minutes later Blanchard was at it again, this time taking a pass from Haylee Hennessy (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton) and beating the keeper to make it 2-0. The third score came on the end of an impressive run by defender Tara Birkmeyer (Newark Valley H.S./Berkshire), who took control of the ball in the defensive end and drove the length of the field before blasting a shot past the keeper for her first collegiate goal. The score remained 3-0 into the half.

After switching ends of the field, Clinton got on the board ten minutes into the second half, taking advantage of a defensive lapse to make it 3-1. The Panthers continued to control play in the second half, eventually answering with 7:22 left on the clock.Kristin Dake (Lansing H.S./Ithaca) fed a pass to Shannon Test (Mechanicville H.S./Mechanicville) at midfield, who took the ball through the defense and found space to fire a shot into the net. Dake got a goal of her own 90 second later, giving the Panthers a 5-1 lead. A Clinton goal with 1:26 left made the Panthers’ final margin of victory 5-2.

With the win, Tompkins Cortland’s unbeaten streak extends to eight games while the overall record improves to 11-4-2. Clinton’s season ends with a record of 3-11.


Panthers Claim Mid-State Athletic Conference Title

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

TC3 soccer

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team claimed the third Mid-State Athletic Conference title in program history Wednesday. The Panthers and SUNY Broome played through double overtime in a scoreless tie before the Panthers prevailed on penalty kicks, 4-3. The teams end the regular season as MSAC co-champions with identical records of 5-0-1. The Panthers are now 10-4-2 overall while the Hornets, the top-ranked team in Region III, are now 13-1-2 overall.

Tompkins Cortland previously claimed MSAC titles in 2010 and 2005, with 2005 being the only other time the team went undefeated in conference play. Panther keeper Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) posted shutouts in three of the six conference games, but none were as impressive as Tuesday. The freshman recorded an astounding 37 saves during the 110 minutes of play, keeping the game knotted at 0-0.

In the penalty kicks, each team converted on three of their first five attempts before Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) scored the goal to end play, 4-3, in favor of the Panthers.

With the regular season over, both teams look forward to the NJCAA Region III playoffs. Tompkins Cortland will host Clinton Community College Saturday at noon in opening round play.

Panthers Come Up Just Short Against Top Ten Team

Sunday, August 30, 2015

TC3 soccer

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team hosted its second nationally-ranked team the weekend Sunday with a match-up against #9 ranked Hudson Valley Community College. Like in Saturday’s tie with Holyoke Community College (Mass.), the Panthers put up a strong defensive effort. But unlike Saturday’s scoreless tie, Sunday’s effort came up a little short as the visiting Viking posted a 1-0 win. The loss drops the Panthers to 0-1-1 overall and 0-1-0 in Region III. Hudson Valley improves to 2-0-0 overall and in Region III.

Much like the previous day, the home team had plenty of chances. The Panthers earned eight corner kicks, but managed to put just four shots on goal as the Hudson Valley defense did a good job keeping the Panthers from capitalizing on the scoring chances. On the other end, the Vikings managed more shots, despite have less time of possession. The only shot that made it through came midway through the second half, as a Hudson Valley player slipped through the defense and slid a shot past Tompkins Cortland goalie Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley).

One day after a double-overtime shutout, Graves had another great game in goal. She recorded six saves and made several additional good plays.

The Panthers look to continue the strong defense while getting the offense going when the team take to the road for the first time Wednesday, opening the Mid-State Athletic Conference schedule at Jefferson Community College.


Panthers and Cougars Play to Scoreless Tie

Saturday, August 29, 2015

TC3 soccer

The 2015 women’s soccer season officially got underway at Tompkins Cortland Community College Saturday, with the Panthers hosting nationally-ranked Holyoke Community College (Mass.). After regulation and two overtimes, the final score was the same as the starting score as the teams played to a 0-0 tie.

The home team generally enjoyed the better of play, with the better scoring chances. In the first half, Cali Daly (Coventry H.S./Coventry, Conn.) brought the crowd to its feet with a drive from the right that looked to have a chance to go in, but hit the crossbar and rebounded to a group of players in the box for another quality chance. In the second half the Panthers kept the pressure on, controlling the ball in the offensive end most of the way. The same held true in both overtimes, but again the home team was unable to find the net.

Holyoke did manage a few chances, but Panthers goalie Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) was up to the challenge. The freshman had a solid collegiate debut, recording four saves.

Next up for the Panthers is a Region III contest with Hudson Valley Community College at home Sunday at 3 p.m.
