October 27, 2016

Three Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer players have been named to the 2016 Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference team. Sophomores Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) and Tara Birkmeyer (Newark Valley H.S./Berkshire) and freshman Anasah DeMember (Elmira H.S./Elmira) were among the 20 players were voted to the all-conference team by the coaches from the seven MSAC soccer programs. Conference champion SUNY Broome had the most selections with six, followed by runner-up Finger Lakes Community College with five. Tompkins Cortland and Onondaga Community College each had three, Jefferson Community College had two, and Cayuga Community College had a single selection.

Panthers and Mohawk Valley Play to 0-0 Draw

Sunday, October 16, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Despite enjoying a significant advantage in time of possession and scoring chances, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team couldn’t break through, playing Mohawk Valley Community College to a scoreless draw Sunday. The Panthers did win the shootout, which could be used for potential playoff seeding, but the final result of a tie brings the Panthers to 6-6-1 overall and 5-5-1 in Region III. Mohawk Valley is 7-6-2 overall and 6-5-2 in Region III.

With both teams fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive, the Tompkins Cortland came out and kept the ball in the offensive end much of the game. Despite having the better of play, the Panthers couldn’t mount many serious scoring opportunities. Four corner kicks in the first half gave the home team chances, but none turned into goals. The second half and both overtimes continued the pattern of the home team failing to turn ball control into scoring plays, and the game ended in a 0-0 tie.

When the teams went to penalty kicks for playoff seeding, Sydney Rodriguez (DeWtitt Clinton H.S./Bronx), Tara Birkmeyer (Newark Valley H.S./Berkshire), and Haylee Hennessy (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton) each converted while Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) stopped three shots.

A goal in the second minute of overtime was the lone score of the night as the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team dropped its 2016 season opener 1-0 to Holyoke Community College (Mass.). The home loss came on the first day of the NJCAA Northeast Cup Soccer Invitational.

The best chance of the night ended with a shot wide of the net, sending the game to extra time. The visiting Cougars ended the game with 8:15 left in overtime, punching a ball past Panthers keeper Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) for the win.

Graves had a strong game, controlling the box and keeping a clean slate until the OT. The sophomore had six saves in the loss.
