Panthers Split Home Doubleheader

Thursday, April 17, 2014

TC3 softball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College softball team earned a doubleheader split with SUNY Broome Thursday, bouncing back from a 13-3 loss in the opener to win game two 10-3. TC3 is now 7-8 overall and 5-6 in Region III. Broome is 3-5 both overall and in region.

TC3 put itself in a hole early in game one, allowing three runs in the first inning as the result of a pair of walks and a home run. The Panthers scored a single run in the bottom of the inning, but Broome pushed the lead to 5-1 with a pair in the second. Broome added a run in the third, and TC3 scored twice in the bottom to make the score 6-3. The score remained unchanged until the Hornets plated a run in the sixth and then blew the game open with six runs in the seventh.

Game one was rough by almost all standards. TC3 managed just four hits while allowing 13 hits, walking 11 batters, hitting another batter, and committing six errors.

The second game went much better for the Panthers, but the start was still shaky. The visiting Hornets plated two runs in the top of the first, but the Panthers tied the score up in the bottom of the second. With pitcher Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) keeping Broome stuck at two runs, the Panther offense put three runs up in the fourth to extend the lead to 5-2. A single Broome run in the fifth was answered with five runs for the Panthers in the sixth. A perfect seventh for Forehand made the final 10-3.

Kailyn Andrews (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) had a big game at the plate, going 3-for-3 with three doubles. Karrie Snyder (Newfield H.S./Newfield) went 3-for-4 with three RBI and Macey Morse (Fabius-Pompey H.S./Fabius) went 2-for-4. Kaley O’Brien (Niskayuna H.S./Niskayuna) and Forehand each had a double as part of the team’s 14-hit attack. Forehand earned the complete game victory in the circle, striking out four while allowing just one earned run.

TC3 plays at Herkimer County Community College Saturday

Highlights–2002 Women's Softball

TC3 at Monroe CC, NJCAA Region III Playoffs

Tuesday, May 07, 2002

The TC3 season came to an end Tuesday, May 7 when a last inning rally fell short and the Panthers lost to #2 seeded Monroe Community College in the NJCAA Region III sub-regional game. The #7 seeded Panthers trailed 4-1 entering the seventh before scoring a run and loading the bases with no outs. Unfortunately for TC3, the Panthers grounded back to the pitcher for a force out at home, popped out to the third baseman for the second out, and grounded out to end the game. The 4-2 loss ended the most successful TC3 softball season ever. TC3 finished the season 17-9, setting several team and individual records along the way.
 
In the finale, TC3 jumped to a 1-0 lead in the top of the third before Monroe answered with 3 in the fourth and another in the fifth. After a scoreless sixth, TC3's Laura Thomas Angela Coraci (Union Springs/Auburn, NY) led off the seventh with a single to start the rally. Sheena Adger (East/Rochester, NY) got on with a bunt, bringing Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA) to the plate with two runners on. A strong single scored Coraci making it 4-2. Laura Thomas (South Seneca/Interlaken, NY) had her third hit of the day, a single to rightfield that loaded the bases with no outs. With a relief pitcher warming up, the Monroe team worked out of the jam without allowing another run to score. The game ended with the tying run in scoring position.
 
Horton pitched another solid game, giving up just two earned runs over six innings. She picked up 4 strikeouts, giving her a TC3 record 100 for the season. Thomas went 3-for-4 with a double, pushing her batting average to .506 on the season. Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) and Jamie Sage (Groton/Groton, NY) each had two hits for the Panthers.


TC3 vs. Mohawk Valley CC

Sunday, May 05, 2002

Against Mohawk Valley, two solid offensive games were undermined by poor showings in the field. Game one saw TC3 blow a 4-2 fourth inning lead before losing 5-4. Laura Thomas (South Seneca/Interlaken, NY) had another big day at the plate, going -for-4 with a homer and two RBIs. Angela Coraci (Union Springs/Auburn, NY) finished 2-for-3 as eight of the nine Panthers in the starting lineup contributed base hits. Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) pitched well enough to win, yielding just one earned run while striking out four.
 
Game 2 again saw TC3 bang out 10 hits, and again, it wasn't enough as Mohawk Valley jumped to an early lead and never gave it back. Trailing 4-0 in the fifth, Thomas stepped to the plate with two runners on and deposited the pitch over the left center fence for a three-run homer. After Mohawk answered with four in the sixth, and another in the seventh, Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA) closed out the Panthers scoring with a two-run blast in the seventh. Thomas finished 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs, while Horton took the loss on the mound despite giving up just 4 earned runs.

Laura Thomas (South Seneca/Interlaken, NY) had another big day at the plate, going -for-4 with a homer and two RBIs. Angela Coraci (Union Springs/Auburn, NY) finished 2-for-3 as eight of the nine Panthers in the starting lineup contributed base hits. Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) pitched well enough to win, yielding just one earned run while striking out four.
 
Game 2 again saw TC3 bang out 10 hits, and again, it wasn't enough as Mohawk Valley jumped to an early lead and never gave it back. Trailing 4-0 in the fifth, Thomas stepped to the plate with two runners on and deposited the pitch over the left center fence for a three-run homer. After Mohawk answered with four in the sixth, and another in the seventh, Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA) closed out the Panthers scoring with a two-run blast in the seventh. Thomas finished 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs, while Horton took the loss on the mound despite giving up just 4 earned runs.

At Alfred, TC3 and the hosts hooked up in a pair of tight games.

After both teams scored a single run in the eighth, Alfred ended the contest 6-5 with the game winner in the bottom of the ninth. The Panthers lost despite another pair of great performances from Laura Thomas (South Seneca/Interlaken, NY) and Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA). Thomas, who is among the team leaders in every offensive category, went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored, and an RBI. Horton added two hits, including a double, on three at-bats while scoring twice. Horton also pitched the complete game, striking out six over nine innings and yielding just one earned run.
 
Game two saw Alfred score in the first, with TC3 tying it in the second. Single runs by Alfred in the second, fifth, and sixth proved to be too much as the hosts won 4-2. Thomas took the loss on the mound, despite giving up just three earned runs. Offensively, Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) and Carrie Quigley (Southern Cayuga/Locke, NY) each went 2-for-3 with a double.

She struck out five while allowing just three hits and kept her ERA perfect on the season. At the plate, Horton helped her cause by going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) knocked in two runs as eight Panthers picked up hits. TC3 outhit Canton 9-to-3.
 
The second game started like the first, with Canton scoring two in the bottom of the first to take an early lead. This time, however, TC3 responded with two in the second, two in the third, three in the fourth, and two in the seventh. Zirbel picked up the win in her collegiate pitching debut, striking out three while throwing a complete game seven-hitter. Zirbel helped her cause at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base, and two runs scored. Carrie Quigley (Southern Cayuga/ Locke, NY) and Cassidy Rodman (Sherburne-Earlville/Earlville, NY) each scored twice for the winner, while Sheena Adger (East/Rochester, NY) added a double and two RBI's.


TC3 at SUNY Canton

Sunday, April 14, 2002

TC3 improved to 3-0 on the season with a doubleheader sweep of SUNY Canton Sunday. The Panthers again showed a flair for the dramatic by coming from behind in both contests. TC3 won the opener 4-2 and the nightcap 9-7.
 
After the long bus ride, TC3 started slowly in the opener. After failing to score in the top of the first, a pair of Panther errors allowed two unearned Canton runs to score. Neither team would cross the plate again until the top of the sixth, when TC3 tied the score with a pair. In the top of the seventh, the visitors pushed two more across, taking the lead for good. Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA) enjoyed another stellar outing on the mound, going the distance for the win. She struck out five while allowing just three hits and kept her ERA perfect on the season. At the plate, Horton helped her cause by going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Kim Zirbel (Groton/Groton, NY) knocked in two runs as eight Panthers picked up hits. TC3 outhit Canton 9-to-3.

TC3 vs. Jefferson CC

Tuesday, April 09, 2002

TC3 opened the season with a dramatic win, scoring in the bottom of the seventh for a 4-3 defeat of Jefferson CC. The Panthers never trailed in their first game of the season, but needed a game-winning single by Angela Coraci (Union Springs/ Auburn, NY) to score Sheena Adger (East/Rochester, NY) to break the tie.
 
TC3 started the scoring with a run in the bottom of the second, and with Tiffany Horton (Athens/Athens, PA) dominating on the mound, it looked like that would be enough. Jefferson scratched a run across in the fourth before TC3 answered with a run in the fifth and another in the sixth. With two outs and nobody on base, TC3 was just one out away from a 3-1 win when some sloppy play opened the door for the visitors. By the time the half-inning ended, Jefferson had tied the score and set the stage for the Coraci/Adger dramatics.
 
Horton starred in her collegiate debut, pitching a complete game. She struck out 11 batters - a new TC3 single game record - gave up just six hits and no earned runs. Batterymate Laura Thomas (South Seneca/Interlaken, NY) led the offense with a 2-for-3 day and two stolen bases.
 
The scheduled second game was postponed due to a violent rain storm that blew through the area just after the end of the first game.
