Heartbreaking Loss for Panthers

Sunday, August 30, 2015

TC3 soccer

When a game-winning goal is scored with 3.4 seconds left in overtime, one team is ecstatic and one team is left in disbelief. On Sunday, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team was the team left wondering had just happened as Brookdale Community College (N.J.) beat the clock to beat the Panthers, 2-1. The loss evens Tompkins Cortland’s record at 1-1 while Brookdale improves to 2-0.

Less than 24 hours after scoring six goals in a high-energy win, the Panthers came out flat Sunday. Brookdale took advantage, scoring the game’s first goal in the 17th minute. The score held at 1-0 into the half, but the Panthers stepped things up in the second half. The increased pressure finally pushed one across when Nick Cowen (McGraw H.S./McGraw) continued his hot start with another great play. The sophomore beat the defense down the left, and put the ball across the goal to a waiting Daniel Lincoln (Marathon H.S./Marathon), who heading the equalizer just inside the post. The final 19 minutes of regulation saw each team have chances, but the horn sounded with the score still tied.

In extra time, Brookdale had the flair for the dramatic, capitalizing on a Panther turnover in the defensive end to score the game winner.

Freshman Kyle McCane (Churchville-Chili H.S./Churchville) went the distance in goal, registering three saves.

With the non-region portion of the schedule over, the Panthers head Jefferson Community College Wednesday for a Region III and Mid-State Athletic Conference contest.

Coaches–Men's Soccer

Andy Davis

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.

For the third consecutive year, four Panthers have been honored; Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn), James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh), and Jacob Czapranski (Dryden H.S./Dryden). A total of 26 players were voted onto the team by the coaches of Region III. Cayuga Community College and Herkimer College each had five selections, followed by TC3 and Mohawk Valley Community College each with four selections. The other eight selections were distributed among six schools.

Shutter is a repeat first-team selection, just the sixth time 20-year history of TC3 men’s soccer a Panther has been a two-time first-team all-region selection. He led the team in scoring with 16 goals, including five game winners. The sophomore accounted for exactly half of TC3’s goals this season.

Richards is also a repeat all-region selection, earning second-team honors two years in a row at goal keeper. He had a record of 11-4, which included seven shutouts, and his goals against average of 0.98 was the third best season ever for a Panther.

Czapranski, the lone freshman among TC3’s honorees, was one of the hardest working midfielders in the region. He was second on the team in assists with three, and had his biggest offensive game (goal and assist) in the team’s final win over Mohawk Valley.

Tompkins Cortland Community College student Sean Streb has been recognized by the State University of New York (SUNY) with a 2013-14 Scholar Athlete Award. Streb, a two-time all-American soccer player at TC3, graduated from TC3 last month with a liberal arts and sciences: math/science degree. He will attend SUNY Cortland in the fall.

The award recognizes outstanding academic excellence and athletic achievement. “SUNY scholar athletes are stand-out students who have excelled not only in their respective sports but in our classrooms as well,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher in announcing the recipients. “With an average GPA of 3.55 among this year’s honorees, we are exceptionally proud of their achievements. Congratulations to each of the students recognized, and thank you to the many professors, coaches, and staff across SUNY who support them."

A total of 83 student-athletes were recognized, representing 35 of SUNY’s 64 campuses. In order to be considered for this award, student-athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees’ academic credentials and athletic accomplishments were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across the SUNY system and members of the provost’s office.

December 17, 2013

More honors for Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer players Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) and Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), this time from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Streb and Shutter have been named to the 2013 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Men’s Division III All-America team. Streb, one of just four repeat selections, was named to the first team; Shutter, a freshman, was chosen on the second team.

A total of 12 players were named to the first team, and Streb was one of just three defenders. A second-team selection in 2012, he started 16 games in 2013 while leading a defense that allowed just nine goals during those games. The Panthers posted eight shutouts and allowed two goals in a game just once while Streb was on the field. The co-captain also scored seven goals and had an assist for a TC3 team that advanced to the Region III championship game and finished the year ranked ninth in the nation.

Shutter, who also earned All-American honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), had a spectacular debut season. He was named the Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year, helping the Panthers to an undefeated conference record. He started 16 games, scoring in half. He netted a hat-trick in TC3’s win over Cayuga Community College and had two streaks of three consecutive games with a goal. He finished the year with 24 points on 10 goals and four assists.

This marks the fourth-straight year TC3 men’s soccer has been represented on the All-American team, and the second-straight year with two players honored.

Davis was named the co-coach of the year in the region; Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing), Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), and Rob Licciardi (North Babylon H.S./North Babylon) were all first-team selections; McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) was chosen to the second team.

Despite playing defense most of the season, he was second on the team with seven goals.

 

Shutter, a freshman and the Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year, led TC3 with 10 goals and 24 points. Licciardi, a sophomore, was fourth on the team with 11 points on four assists and three goals. Richards, a freshman, had an 11-1-3 record that included six shutouts. His 0.65 goals against average this season was the best ever for a TC3 goalie.

 

The regional award is the first such honor for Davis and the first for a TC3 men’s soccer coach since Mick McDaniel in 1999. Davis is a five-time MSAC Coach of the Year, including this season.

Panthers Dominate All-Conference Honors

October 25, 2013

The 2013 Mid-State Athletic Conference (MSAC) men’s soccer post-season honors have been announced, and for the second straight year, Tompkins Cortland Community College has dominated the honors. The Panthers claimed the most spots on the all-conference team, as well as the two individual awards. In voting by the coaches of the seven teams in the MSAC, TC3’s Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) has been named the Player of the Year and Andy Davis has been named the Coach of the Year. Additionally, TC3 claimed seven spots on the 20-man all-conference team; the next most was four. TC3 repeated as conference champions, winning the title with a record of 6-0 against fellow MSAC teams.

Shutter is the fourth different Panther in the last five years to be named conference player of the year, and the seventh all time. Shutter leads TC3 with 24 points on 10 goals and four assists. Joining Shutter on the all-MSAC team are Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing), a repeat selection; Rob Licciardi (North Babylon H.S./North Babylon); Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn); James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh); McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn); and Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon). It marks the 13th consecutive season TC3 has had at least four players named all-MSAC.

For Davis, it’s the fifth time he has been honored as the conference coach of the year. His teams have claimed five MSAC titles in his nine years at TC3.

Soccer Players Named All Americans

January 8, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer players Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) and Michael Raftu (Marte Valle H.S./Manhattan) have been named All Americans by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Both were named to the 2012 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Men’s Division III All America second team.

Streb, a freshman defender, was one of nine first-year players chosen among the 24 honored between first and second team. He started all 19 games for a defense that posted six shutouts while allowing an average of just 1.42 goals per game for the season. Streb also scored six goals for the Panthers.

Raftu, a sophomore forward, was among the national scoring leaders. He finished third in the NJCAA in goals scored (24) and fourth in total points (56). A transfer into the TC3 program for his sophomore year, Raftu left his mark in the Panther record book. He tied the TC3 record for most points and most goals in a season and his goal total was the third most for a career, despite playing just one season in Dryden.

This marks the third-straight year at least one TC3 men’s soccer player has been named an All American, and the fifth time in the last six years.

Four Men's Soccer Players Named All Region

November 12, 2012

Four Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer players have earned NJCAA Region III all-region honors. Edem Wemene (Nottingham H.S./Syracuse), Michael Raftu (Marta Valle H.S./Manhattan), and Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) all made the first team while Dylan Palacio (Long Beach H.S./Long Beach) was chosen to the second team. A total of 26 players were voted onto the team by the coaches of Region III. Genesee Community College had the most selections with six followed by Herkimer County Community College with five. Broome Community College joined TC3 with four selections. Mohawk Valley Community College had two selections and Clinton Community College and Jamestown Community College each had a single honoree.

Wemene and Raftu were each repeat selections, the third straight year the Panthers have had a repeat all-region honoree. TC3 now has been represented on the all-region team each year since 2001, and only twice during that time have the Panthers had a single selection.
