Deselets Named All-Region

All-region selection Nichole Deselets

Nichole Deselets (Cherry Valley/Cherry Valley H.S.) has been named to the NJCAA Region III Women’s Soccer All-Region team. The freshman defender was voted to the second team by coaches from the 17 teams in the region.

Deselets started 15 games this season, helping the Panthers make a return trip to the playoffs after a one-year hiatus. She was one of the top defenders in the region, leading a defense that allowed just 20 goals in those 15 games.

This marks the 12th time in 13 years that Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the women’s soccer all-region team.

Deselets, Martone, Guilianti, and Rice Named All-MSAC

All-MSAC selections Nicole Deselets, Angela Martone, Serina Guilianti, Robert Rice

Tompkins Cortland Community College’s Robert Rice has been voted the Mid-State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Coach of the Year. Three Panthers joined Rice on the all-conference team: freshmen Serina Guilianti (Harrison/Harrison H.S.) and Nicole Deselets (Cherry Valley/Cherry Valley H.S.) and sophomore Angela Martone (Candor/Candor H.S.). A total of 20 player were named to the team, with conference champion Corning Community College leading the way with five selections.

Guilianti was Tompkins Cortland’s third leading scorer with 10 points on five goals. Three of her goals, including her lone game-winner, came in the 3-2 overtime win over Jamestown.

Deselets was one of the top defenders in the conference. She anchored a defense that allowed just 20 goals in 16 games this season. In thirteen games the opposition scored two or else, including six shutouts.

Martone was a force in the midfield, controlling play and facilitating offensive chances for the Panthers. Her work may not have translated into big statistics – she scored two goals this season – but it set the tone for each game.

This marks the second MSAC Coach of the Year award for Rice in the last three seasons. In six years as head coach, he has posted a record of 51-40 while leading the Panthers to the postseason five times. This year’s team went 10-6, the third time Rice has led a team to double-digit wins.

Panthers Upset in Opening Round of Playoffs

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The return trip to the NJCAA playoffs for the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team was a short one. The Panthers fell victim to a first–round upset Tuesday, losing at home to Mohawk Valley Community College 2-1. The season ends with a record of 10-6 for the #7 seed while #10 Mohawk Valley advances to the next round of the playoffs with a record 8-8-1.

Things started well for the Panthers, with the home team getting on the board first. In just the seventh minute of the game, Emily Potter (Candor H.S./Candor) played a beautiful free kick into the box for her former high-school teammate, Angela Martone (Candor H.S./Candor). Martone rose above the crowd in front of the goal, heading the ball into the net for an early 1-0 lead. Both teams had chances the rest of the half, but neither could change the score heading into the break.

The second half found Tompkins Cortland just a little off its game, and the Hawks took advantage. Mohawk Valley evened the score with 18:30 left on the clock, and then took the lead with a second goal just 1:36 later. The lead would hold, as despite putting pressure on late, the Panthers were unable to score the rest of the way.

Katie Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) posted seven saves in goal for the Panthers.

TC3 Wins Opener at Corning

Sunday, September 08, 2002

Playing for the first time in 2002, the TC3 women’s soccer team posted a 3-1 win at Corning Community College. TC3 is now 1-0, while Corning fell to 0-2. The game was the Mid-State Athletic Conference (MSAC) opener for both teams.
The TC3 offense was led by the return of all-MAC player Nicole Cambridge (Union-Endicott HS/Endicott) to the line-up. Cambridge, who earned all-conference honors in 2000 before not playing soccer last year, returned to TC3 to complete her final year of soccer eligibility. The return was a victorious one as Cambridge scored two unassisted goals to lead the Panthers to their first season opening win since 1998. Mia Bennett (Binghamton High/Binghamton) also scored for TC3.
“The women worked hard,” said TC3 head coach Nikki Thomas. “It was great to see the team work together and get the win.” TC3 out shot Corning 15-14 while the two teams were even with four corners each.
TC3 next plays at Jefferson CC at 7 PM Wednesday, September 11.
