All-City Player Signs with Panthers

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.

Playoff Loss Ends Season for Panthers

Saturday, October 23, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer season came to a close Saturday in the opening round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The #7-seed Panthers were upset at home by #10-Jefferson Community College, 1-0, to end the year with a record of 11-6-1. Of TC3's six losses this year, five came by one goal. Jefferson advances with a record of 9-7-1.
 
Jefferson's Brianna Guarino scored the game's lone goal in the 16th minute of play, and the Panthers couldn't answer. The home team had several chances, with the best coming late in the game. With nine minutes left, Kendra Wagstaff (Candor H.S./Candor) had a great chance on a breakaway, but Jefferson keeper Ashley Chartrand came up big with a diving save. Colleen Bannon (Vestal H.S./Vestal) had another solid opportunity in the final 20 seconds of the game, but again Jefferson's defense met the challenge.
 
Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) capped out a solid freshman season in goal with four saves.


Panthers Strong in Regular Season Finale

Sunday, October 17, 2010

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team snapped out of its mini slump by dominating Cayuga Community College in a 4-0 win Sunday. TC3 improves to 11-5-1 overall, 10-4-1 in Region III, and 5-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. The win, coupled with the Finger Lakes loss to Jefferson, gives TC3 a share of the MSAC championship. Cayuga is now 0-14 overall and 0-5 in the MSAC.
 
TC3 didn't allow a shot on the day, controlling the ball most of the game. The first goal came 12 minutes into the game, with Kayli VanCleef (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) scoring off an assist from Kendra Wagstaff (Candor H.S./Candor). Chrissi Yovino (Minisink Valley H.S./Slate Hill) made it 2-0 off an assists from Colleen Bannon (Vestal H.S./Vestal) in the 30th minute.
 
Katie Driscoll (Southern Cayuga H.S./Aurora) scored in the 55th minute off an assists from VanCleef before Bannon converted a penalty kick in the 69th minute to make the final 4-0.
 
Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) and Bethany Hinman (Valley Heights Christian Academy/Oxford) split time in goal for the winners.
 
The win closes out the regular season on a positive note for the Panthers. TC3 now awaits the announcement of the NJCAA Region III postseason seeding on Wednesday.


Panthers Fall to Nation's #5

Saturday, October 16, 2010

In a battle of teams ranked in the top ten in the nation, the home-standing Finger Lakes Community College Lakers topped the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team 2-0 Saturday. TC3, the #9-ranked team in the nation by the NJCAA, drops to 10-5-1 overall and 9-4-1 in Region III and 4-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes, the #5-ranked team, improves to 13-2-1 overall and in region. The Lakers also improve to 5-0 in the MSAC, clinching the league title.
 
Playing on a wet, slow field and in very windy conditions, the two teams went scoreless in the first half. Finger Lakes broke the tie with a tally in the 73rd minute, and then added an insurance goal with 20 seconds left as the Panthers had pushed up trying to come up with the equalizer.
 
Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) had 12 saves in goal for the Panthers.
 
TC3 plays at Cayuga Community College Sunday.


Panthers Drop Another Double Overtime Game

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Coming into Wednesday's game, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team had just three losses on the season, and two of them came in overtime. The numbers didn't get any better Wednesday as the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team fell to Herkimer County Community College 2-1 in double overtime. TC3, the #9 ranked team in the nation by the NJCAA, drops to 10-4-1 overall and 9-3-1 in Region III. Herkimer improves to 11-4-2 overall and 9-4-1 in Region III.
 
The Panthers struck first. Just nine minutes into the game, TC3 earned a corner kick. Colleen Bannon (Vestal H.S./Vestal) delivered the ball, playing it into the net for a quick 1-0 lead. The home team held the lead until the second half, when Herkimer tied it 11 minutes into the period. Regulation ended without another score, sending the game to overtime tied at 1-1. Neither team could score in the first overtime, but Herkimer put the game winner in with 1:54 left in the second OT. Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) had seven saves in goal for the Panthers. TC3 plays at Finger Lakes Community College Saturday.


Panthers Hold Off Jefferson

Saturday, October 09, 2010

On the day the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team honored its sophomores, it was a freshman who saved the day as the Panthers beat Jefferson Community College 2-1. TC3 is now 10-3-1 overall, 9-2-1 in Region III and 40 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Jefferson drops to 6-5-1 overall and in region and 2-2 in the MSAC.
 
Just five minutes into the game, Jaimi Jones (Union Springs H.S./Auburn) put the Panthers on the board with a goal off a free kick from 30 yards. Colleen Bannon (Vestal H.S./Vestal) made it 2-0 with five minutes left in the half, scoring off an assist from Kayli VanCleef (Mynderse Academy/Seneca Falls) to make it 2-0 at the half.
 
In the second half Jefferson cut the lead in half, but the play of the day kept the visitors from getting any closer. Jefferson took a corner kick with about 22 minutes left, and after TC3 keeper Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) came out to the play the ball, a Jefferson player was able to get a foot on it and fire a shot towards the net. TC3 defender Brittany Monroe (Elmira Free Academy/Elmira), positioned perfectly along the goal line, stopped the shot with her head, preserving the lead. Scheer and the rest of the defense made the lead stand as the final, keeping the slate clean the final 20 minutes of the win.
 
TC3 hosts Herkimer County Community College Wednesday at 5 p.m.


Panthers Get Back on Track with Win

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Playing as a nationally-ranked team for the first time this year, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team posted a 3-1 win at SUNY Delhi Wednesday. The ninth-ranked Panthers improve to 9-3-1 overall and 8-2-1 in Region III while Delhi drops to 2-9 overall and 2-10 in Region III.
 
Playing in muddy conditions, the home team got on the board first with a score in the 25th minute of play.
