Panthers Upset at Home

Sunday, August 31, 2014

TC3 soccer

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team’s 12-game home unbeaten streak came to a close Sunday as the Panthers were upset by Prince George’s Community College (Md.), 1-0. The Panthers, ranked #7 in the nation, are now 1-1. Prince George’s, a perennial playoff team out of Region 20, is now 2-1.

The game was scoreless at the half, with the limited shots split evenly. Midway through the second half the Panthers had a solid chance, playing off a corner kick to header that just cleared the top of the goal. Prince George’s answered a minute later, blasting a shot that TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) made a diving save to keep out of the net. The teams traded possessions without any scoring until the 82nd minute, when a shot beat Richards to make it 1-0. The Panthers would threaten over the final minutes, but never managed to find the net against a strong Owls defense.

The defeat marks the first home loss since October 2012, a 12-game stretch that saw the Panthers outscore their opponents 31-3.

TC3 looks to start a new streak Wednesday, hosting Jefferson Community College in the Region III opener. Game time is 7 p.m.

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 nine seasons directing the TC3 men's soccer program, compiling a record of 112-53-9 and nine 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.

2013 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 two 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.

Highlights–2013 Men's Soccer

Men’s Soccer season came to an end today

Saturday, November 02, 2013

The TC3 Men’s Soccer season came to an end today with a 1-0 loss to SUNY Adirondack in the Region 3 Championship Game. ACC’s Sam Naiwo squeezed a shot just past TC3 Keeper McZiggy Richards that kissed the post and went in the back of the next with just 20 minutes to play in the 2nd half.

The match saw outstanding defensive play by both teams and several great scoring chances that just missed on both sides of the field. TC3’s Rob Licciardi and Sean Streb were named to the All Tournament Team for their fine play. The Panthers end with just this one loss on the season at a record of 13-1-3 and a ranking of #5 in the National Polls.


TC3 Advances to Regional Final

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Evan Holl

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team will play for the Region III-B title, thanks to a 4-0 semifinal win over Erie Community College Tuesday. The Panthers will take on SUNY Adirondack for the championship, which carries with a bid to the NJCAA Division III national championship tournament. Saturday’s regional final will be at 3 p.m. at Herkimer County Community College.

The semifinal win over Erie was never in doubt. The Panthers had the better of play from the opening whistle. The first score came in the 22nd minute, with Jesse Kohler (Minisink Valley H.S./Westtown) putting the ball into the net. TC3 made it 2-0 at the half with a score in the 43rd minute, this time with Kohler taking a corner kick that Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) heading in for the goal.

Just seven minutes into the second half, Drew Christopher (Homer H.S./Homer) beat his defender down the right side of the field and played a perfect pass to Joseph Valle (Monroe Woodbury H.S./Highland Mills) in the box, who scored to make it 3-0. The last score came in the 82 minute on a blast by Andras Tozser (Homer H.S./Homer).

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) needed just one save for the win.


Panthers Cap First Undefeated Regular Season

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Ryan Sincerbeaux

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team capped an undefeated regular season with a 2-1 win over Sussex County Community College (N.J.) Saturday. The non-region win leaves the Panthers with a record of 12-0-3, the first undefeated regular season in TC3 soccer history. Next up for the Panthers is the NJCAA Region III playoffs; seedings will be announced next week.

Playing an 11 a.m. start, the Panthers enjoyed the better of play most of the way, but the game was scoreless until the middle of the second half. With 26:32 left on the clock, the home team finally broke through, with Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) finishing a pass from Joseph Valle (Monroe Woodbury H.S./Highland Mills). The second score came with 10:25 left, when Mark Scott (Twin Tiers Christian Academy/West Danby) played a beautiful cross to Jesse Kohler (Minisink Valley H.S./Westtown), who tapped it in for his first collegiate score.

Sussex broke up the shutout with a penalty kick goal with 57 second left, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Panthers from securing the win and the undefeated season.

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) earned the win in goal.

Panthers Clinch Second Straight MSAC Title

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Morgan Shutter

For the second straight year, and the third time in four years, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team is the Mid-State Athletic Conference champion. The Panthers finished a perfect conference season with a 5-0 win over Cayuga Community College Wednesday. The win leaves TC3 6-0 in the MSAC this year, and 21-1-2 in conference games over the past four seasons. It was the first conference loss of the year for Cayuga.

The game also featured the first collegiate hat trick for freshman Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine). Shutter opened the scoring late in the first half, taking a pass from Cheick Ndiaye (Brooklyn International H.S./Brooklyn) and working into the box for the successful shot with 2:21 left in the half. The score remained 1-0 into the half, but it didn’t take long for the Panthers to heat up in the second half.

Just 79 seconds into the second half, the Panthers made it 2-0 on a goal by Joseph Valle (Monroe Woodbury H.S./Highland Mills), set up by a shot by Shutter that the Cayuga goal keeper saved but couldn’t control. The game’s third and fourth goals both came from Shutter over the next 12 minutes, with assists from Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn) and Ndaiye. The final score came from Malko with 16:33 left, making the score 5-0.

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) had two saves for the shutout, and received help in the form of a spectacular play by sweeper Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon) midway through the second half. After Richards came out to challenge a ball, the Cayuga player got by him and appeared to have an open goal, but Holl raced back in time to clear the ball just before it crossed into the goal.

TC3’s record is now 11-0-3 overall and 6-0-1 in the West Division of Region III. The Panthers host Sussex County Community College Saturday to close out the regular season before heading into the NJCAA playoffs


Panthers Rally for Win

Saturday, October 12, 2013

James Demshick

Playing at Finger Lakes Community College Saturday, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team found itself in an usual position – trailing. For just the second time this season, the Panthers had to rally from a deficit, and they did, posting a 3-2 win to remain undefeated. TC3 is now 10-0-3 overall, 5-0-1 in the Region III West Division, and 5-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes falls to 4-9-3 overall, 3-4-1 in the West Division, and 2-4 in the MSAC. TC3 opened the scoring with a goal by Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), scoring off an assist from Nathan Reynolds (Chazy H.S./Chazy) in the 16th minute. Finger Lakes answered a minute later, and the 1-1 score held into halftime.

In the second, Finger Lakes took the lead eight minutes into action. It marked the first time TC3 had trailed since August 31, a game TC3 came back to tie against Brookdale Community College (N.J.). Against Finger Lakes, TC3 took little time to erase the deficit, tying the game a minute later on a goal by James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh), assisted by Mark Scott (Twin Tiers Christian Academy/West Danby). The game-winner came in the 68th minute, with Joseph Valle (Monroe Woodbury H.S./Highland Mills) converting an assist from Shutter to make it 3-2.

Finger Lakes pressured to score the equalizer, but TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) came up big with a spectacular save in the final minute to preserve the win. Richards finished the game with five saves.

The Panthers host Cayuga Community College Wednesday. Both teams enter the game undefeated in MSAC play.


TC3 Blanks Corning 3-0

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Mark Scott

For the fifth time in the last six games, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team posted a shutout, this time a 3-0 win at Corning Community College. TC3, ranked #5 in the latest NJCAA national poll, is now 9-0-3 overall, 4-0-1 in the Region III West Division, and 4-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning falls to 1-9 overall, 0-6 in the West Division, and 0-5 in the MSAC.

TC3 controlled play throughout the game, out-shooting Corning 13-1. The first score came in the 33rd minute, with Mark Scott (Twin Tiers Christian Academy/West Danby) scoring off an assist from Andras Tozser (Homer H.S./Homer). The second score came five minutes into the second half, with Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) converting a pass from Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon). The final goal came in the 63rd minute on a penalty kick by Dana Smith (Dryden H.S./Dryden).

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) played the entire game, but didn’t need to record a save.

The Panthers play at Finger Lakes Community College Saturday.


TC3 Plays to a Draw at Jamestown

Saturday, October 05, 2013

Sean Streb

For the fourth time this season, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer game went into overtime, and for the third time, the game ended in a tie. Playing at Jamestown Community College Saturday, the Panthers and Jayhawks ended the game deadlocked at 1-1. TC3, ranked #3 in the nation, is now 8-0-3 overall and 3-0-1 in the Region III West Division. Jamestown is now 7-4-3 overall and 2-1-2 in the West Division.

The game was the first time TC3 has played on grass in nearly a month, and the Panthers struggled adjusting to the difference. TC3 did manage to take the lead late in the half with Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) scoring off an assist from Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn) in the 40th minute. The lead held until the 77th minute when the home team evened the score. Neither team could find the net through two overtimes, leaving the final 1-1.

TC3 keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) made two saves on the day.

The game is officially a tie, but following the end of the overtime, the two teams squared off on penalty kicks. The penalty kick result is used as a tie breaker for postseason seeding. In the penalty kicks, Jamestown beat TC3 5-4.

The Panthers play at Corning Community College Wednesday.


TC3 Nips Onondaga to Remain Unbeaten

Saturday, September 28, 2013

A second-half goal off the head of Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) was enough to keep the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team unbeaten as the Panthers edged Onondaga Community College 1-0 Saturday. TC3, ranked #3 in the nation, is now 8-0-2 overall, 3-0 in the Region III West Division, and 3-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Onondaga is now 5-2-1 overall, 2-1-1 in the West Division, and 3-1 in the MSAC.

After a scoreless first half, the Panthers put the only score on the board midway through the second half. In the 68th minute, Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn) played a free kick into the box where Streb put it into the net for the game winner. Keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) made the score stand up, recording three saves for his third straight shutout and the team’s fourth straight.

The Panthers are off until the weekend when they play at Jamestown Community College Saturday.


Panthers Play D-I Powerhouse to 0-0 Draw

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Evan Holl and McZiggy Richards ready the defense

In a matchup of two teams ranked among the best in the nation in their respective divisions, the Tompkins Cortland Community College and Monroe Community College men’s soccer teams played to a scoreless draw Wednesday. TC3, the #3-ranked Division III team in the nation, is now 7-0-2 overall. Monroe, the #12-ranked Division I team in the nation, is now 5-1-2.

The home team had some solid scoring chances early, failing to convert first on a loose ball in the box and then on a penalty kick in the first nine minutes of play. The two teams traded possessions the rest of the half, with neither team mounting a strong chance. The second half brought an increase in intensity and in overly-physical play, culminating with a red card on a Monroe player with 3:17 in regulation. The Panthers couldn’t take advantage of the man-up advantage the rest of regulation or in overtime, missing on good chances off corner kicks in both OT periods. The Panther defense, anchored by Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon) and Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing), kept the game scoreless. Keeper McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights H.S./Brooklyn) had his best game of the year, making a spectacular save two minutes into the first overtime to thwart Monroe’s best scoring threat of the game.

The Panthers return to Division III play Saturday, playing at Onondaga Community College.


Panthers Show Explosiveness in 4-0 Win

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Morgan Shutter works in the offensive end

The #4-ranked Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer showed its offensive explosiveness Saturday, cruising to a 4-0 win over Erie Community College. The Panthers are now 7-0-1 overall and 2-0 in the Region III West Division. Erie drops to 2-2 overall and 2-1 in the West.

Playing with a stiff wind at its back in the first half, the Panthers put consistent pressure from the start. The first goal came in the 23rd minute when Evan Holl (Marathon H.S./Marathon) played a long free kick into the box where Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) rose above the defense to head the ball into the goal. Just two minutes later the score moved to 2-0 when Drew Christopher (Homer H.S./Homer) took a pretty cross from Rob Licciardi (North Babylon H.S./North Babylon) and beat the keeper. The second scoring burst came late in the half, and again featured a pretty pass from Licciardi, this time Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) finishing to make it 3-0 with 1:30 left in the first half. The final score came just forty second later, when Nicholas Lindley (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) threw the ball in, Yauhen Malko (James Madison H.S./Brooklyn) flicked a header to Christopher, who blasted the ball past the keeper.

The second half saw the Panthers continue to control play, limiting Erie to a single shot on goal, which keeper Jesse Kohler (Minisink Valley H.S./Westtown) saved to preserve the shutout.

The Panthers host Monroe Community College Wednesday at 7 p.m.


Panthers Work OT to Remain Unbeaten

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Rob Licciard in action

The #4-ranked Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer kept its unbeaten record intact Tuesday, but it took overtime to do it. Hosting Broome Community College, the Panthers scored in extra time to post a 1-0 win. TC3 is now 6-0-1 overall and 2-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome falls to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the MSAC.

The home team had several chances throughout regulation and into overtime, but the game winner didn’t come until 3:02 left in the first overtime period.
