Big Road Win for Panthers

Sunday, August 31, 2014

An offensive explosion to open the game Sunday powered the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team into the win column for the first time this year as the Panthers posted a 5-1 non-region win at Massasoit Community College (Mass.). The Panthers are now 1-1 on the year; it was the season opener for Massasoit.

The scoring started just two minutes into the game, and produced all five goals within the first 13 minutes of play. Rachel Bitjeman (Liberty H.S./White Sulphur) was the first to find the back of the net, scoring off an assist from Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville). By the time the onslaught ended, Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton), Emma DeLisio (Onteora H.S./Woodstock), Brittany Richmond (Red Creek H.S./Red Creek), and Lindsey Hack (Chazy H.S./Chazy) each had a goal, and Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) had an assist.

Emma Augustine (Ellenville H.S./Ellenville) earned the win in goal, capping a strong debut weekend for the freshman. The lone goal allowed in Sunday’s game came on a breakaway with two minutes left in the contest.

Next up for the Panthers is the home opener, Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. against Jefferson Community College

Highlights–2004 Women's Soccer

Panthers Fall at North Country

Saturday, September 18, 2004

Playing with just ten players due to injuries, the Panthers came up on the short end of a 5-1 score at North Country Community College Saturday. The Panthers are now 0-4, while North Country improves to 3-2.
Terra Strickland (Candor HS/Candor) scored the lone TC3 goal, heading in a pass from Kari Bonaparte (Salmon River HS/Bombay) off a direct kick in the 19th minute. The goal made the score 2-1, but North Country added another tally in the 39th minute to make it 3-1 at the half. A goal seven minutes into the second half made it 4-1, and a final score in the final minute of the game made the final 5-1.
Mikaela Bravo-Cullen (Dryden HS/Dryden) made 20 saves in goal for the Panthers.

Panthers Fall to Alfred State

Wednesday, September 15, 2004

After a fairly evenly matched first 25 minutes, the TC3 women's soccer team ran out of gas, losing to Alfred State 11-3 Wednesday. TC3 is now 0-3 while Alfred State improves to 2-2.
Both teams scored early, with Alfred State putting one in just two minutes into the contest. TC3 answered with a breakaway goal by Terra Strickland (Candor HS/Candor) three minutes later to make it 1-1. Alfred made it 2-1 in the 20th minute and added to their lead with another tally in the 24th minute, but TC3 answered just 24 seconds later with another goal from Strickland to make it 3-2. At that point, Alfred State took advantage of a tired TC3 team and added three more goals before the half to make it 6-2. Despite another goal by Strickland just 36 seconds into the second half to make it 6-3, TC3 could never get back into the game. Alfred State scored all five of their second half goals in a 15-minute span in the middle of the half to make the final 11-3.
