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's Briana Sokol Signs with Panthers

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's Emily Potter Commits to Panthers

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."

Highlights–2013 Women's Soccer

Eight-Goal Outburst Powers TC3 Women

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Shelby Goodrich works in the offensive end

A well-balanced attack featuring goals by eight different players powered the #10-ranked Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team to an 8-0 win over Erie Community College Saturday. TC3 is now 5-2-1 overall and 1-1 in the Region III West Division. Erie drops to 0-4 overall and 0-3 in the West.

The game started under threatening skies, but it didn’t take long for the skies to open and produce a rain that lasted most of the game. It also didn’t take long for the TC3 offense to take charge. In the 14th minute, TC3 started the downpour of goals with a header by Mercedes Kendall (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) off a corner kick by Erika Faberzak (Cortland H.S./Cortland). Less than a minute later, Shelby Goodrich (Minisink Valley H.S./Otisville) took the ball through the middle of defense to make it 2-0. Six minutes later Amy Filupeit (Margaretville H.S./Margaretville) scored off an assist from Taylor Liebowitz (Emmaus H.S./Allentown, Penn.), and Liebowitz made it 4-0 in the final second of the half.

The second half featured goals from Hannah Wotherspoon (Onteora H.S./West Hurley), Faberzak, Kali Day (Dundee H.S./Tyrone), and Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden). Goalkeepers Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor) and Emily Hilliker (Pulaski H.S./Pulaski) split time in the goal, facing a total of one shot.

TC3 hosts Jamestown Community College-Cattaraugus Wednesday at 4 p.m.
