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

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

A great season came to an end Tuesday as the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team lost to Mohawk Valley Community College, 2-1, in the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The Panthers end the year with a record of 13-5.
 
The regional semifinal opened with Mohawk Valley taking an early lead, thanks to a goal by Victoria Reynolds in the 10th minute. TC3 tied it up in the 23rd minute, with Paige McCarthy (Marathon H.S./Marathon) left-footing a direct kick into the net from 20 yards out. The score remained even the rest of the half, but the game-winner came 13 minutes into the second half when Sam Getman put in a rebound to make it 2-1. Despite out-shooting the home team 7-3 in the second half, TC3 was unable to net the equalizer.
 
Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) finished the game with seven saves in goal.


Panthers Advance in NJCAA Playoffs

Saturday, October 22, 2011

A goal in the first minute of the game set the tone as the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team beat defending national champion Clinton Community College, 3-0, Saturday in the opening round the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The #5 seeded Panthers improve to 13-4 overall while #12 Clinton ends the season 9-7-1.
 
The home team couldn't ask for a better start, as Angela Halliday (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) beat a Clinton defender to control a loose ball, and then lifted a shot over the Clinton keeper's head for a score just 54 seconds into the game. The Panthers kept up the pressure, earning several great chances in the opening half, finally converting for the second score in the 30th minute when Halliday took a pass from Shaylee Howaniec (Spackenkill H.S./Poughkeepsie) near midfield and carried the ball down the right side into the box where she again beat the keeper for a goal. The score remained 2-0 heading into the half as TC3 enjoyed a 9-2 advantage in shots over the first 45 minutes.
 
In the second half, TC3 had several more chances. With 6:20 left in the game, Howaniec scored a goal of her own, converting a nice pass from Chrissi Yovino (Minisink Valley H.S./Minisink) and finding the back of the net to make it 3-0. The defense, anchored by goal keeper Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) with her two saves, kept the slate clean to make the final 3-0.
 
The Panthers now advance to take on #4 Mohawk Valley Community College Tuesday in Utica.


Panthers Close Regular Season with Win

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

The Panthers, ranked #8 in the latest NJCAA national poll, end the regular season with a record of 12-4 overall and 4-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Onondaga is 11-5-1 overall and 3-2-1 in the MSAC.
 
The visiting Lazers got on the scoreboard first, with Jessica Savo scoring in the 38th minute. The score held at 1-0 until late in the second half, when Angela Halliday (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) converted a pass from Paige McCarthy (Marathon H.S./Marathon) for the tying goal in the 75th minute. The game-winner came off the head of Kendra Wagstaff (Candor H.S./Candor) in the 83rd minute.

Panthers Come Up Short Against Nation's #2

Sunday, October 16, 2011

In a clash between two nationally-ranked teams, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team came up just short, losing 1-0 to Finger Lakes Community College. The Panthers, ranked #7 in the latest NJCAA national poll, are now 11-4 overall and 3-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes, the #2 ranked team in the nation, improves to 16-0-1 overall and 4-0 in the MSAC.
 
The lone score came near the end of the first half, as Hannah Dalle muscled her way through the defense to score from about 10 yards out. The score in the 41st minute gave Finger Lakes the lead heading into the halftime.
 
Where the visiting Lakers had the better of the play in the opening 45 minutes, TC3 applied more consistent pressure in the second half. The Panthers had several quality chances, especially during a ten-minute span in the middle of the half. With 22 minutes left, Dakota Hanley (Franklin H.S./Franklin) played a cross into the box where a leaping Angela Halliday (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) touched the ball just wide of the goal. Halliday made another drive into the box a few minutes later, getting a shot on goal that the Finger Lakes keeper was able to stop. The closest the home team would come was with 15 minutes left, when Jaimi Jones (Union Springs H.S./Auburn) played a cross to Halliday, who put a shot on goal that the Finger Lakes keeper was able to deflect up and off the cross bar. Finger Lakes answered two minutes later with a cross-bar shot of their own, but neither team was able to find the net.
 
The Panthers conclude the regular season Wednesday with a home game at 2:30 p.m. against Onondaga Community College.


Win Streak Snapped at 11

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

The only score came very early, as Herkimer found the net in the fifth minute of play. Despite hitting the cross bar twice, the Panthers couldn’t find the net with an answering score the rest of the way.
 
The Panthers host Finger Lakes Community College Sunday.


Panthers Win 11th Straight

Saturday, October 08, 2011

A pair of first-half goals was enough for the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team to net its 11th-straight win as the Panthers topped Jefferson Community College 2-0 Saturday. TC3 is now 11-2 overall, 10-1 in Region III, and 3-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Jefferson falls to 6-5-2 overall and in the region and 2-1-1 in the MSAC.
 
The Panthers got on the board early. In the fifth minute of play, Angela Halliday (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) slotted a perfect pass to Kendra Wagstaff (Candor H.S./Candor), who finished to make it 1-0. Late in the first half, Jaimi Jones (Union Springs H.S./Auburn) doubled the lead on a free kick from 25 yards, beating the keeper with a rocket to the low, left corner.
 
The defense and goalkeeper Samijo Scheer (Corning East H.S./Corning) made the lead stand, with Scheer recording three saves for her seventh shutout of the season.
 
The Panthers play at Herkimer County Community College Wednesday.

Sunday, August 28, 2011
