Wildenstein, DeGraff, Blanchard Named All Region

November 4, 12014

2014 women's soccer all region players

Three Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer players have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region team. Sophomores Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville) and Amanda DeGraff (Cortland H.S./Cortland) have been named to the first team; freshman Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) earned second-team honors. A total of 26 players were honored between first and second teams in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation.

 

Wildenstein, a forward, led the TC3 offense by playing a role in 16 of the team’s 40 goals this year. She was top on the team with 12 goals and scored at least one point in all seven of the team’s wins. The two-year starter also earned all-conference honors from the Mid-State Athletic Conference this year.

 

DeGraff anchored a TC3 defense that posted seven shutouts and allowed a single goal five other times. She scored two goals and had two assists, including a goal and an assist in the Panthers’ semifinal playoff game. DeGraff also earned all-conference honors this year, her second-straight season earning that recognition.

 

Blanchard was selected to the second team as a midfielder. She led the team with five assists and was third in total scoring with 15 points. She had a seven-point game in TC3’s win over Corning Community College, making her the first Panthers in four years to reach that mark in a single game.

 

TC3 finished the year with a record of 7-8-4. The Panthers advanced to the semifinal round of the Region III playoffs, getting eliminated on penalty kicks after playing to a tie. It was the second straight year the Panthers lost in the semifinal rounds, and the tenth straight year TC3 made it into the playoffs. This also marks the tenth-straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-region team, and the ninth time during that span with multiple selections.

Heartbreaking End for Panthers

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Just days after advancing in dramatic fashion in the opening round of the 2014 NJCAA Region III women’s soccer playoffs, the #12-seed Tompkins Cortland Community College Panthers came oh-so-close to pulling off another upset. TC3 took #4 Hudson Valley Community College to the limit, tying at 2-2 after double-overtime before being eliminated in penalty kicks. TC3 ends the season in the Region III-A semifinal round while Hudson Valley advances to take on top-seed Herkimer College in the Region III-A championship game, being played Saturday at TC3.

Tuesday’s game was a rematch of the season-opener, won by Hudson Valley by a final of 2-0. In the season opener, the Panthers struggled to keep up with the deeper Vikings. This time around, TC3 again had a much shorter bench, but the action on the field was very even. In the first half, the Vikings scored in the 24th minute, but TC3 answered with a long goal on a free kick by Amanda DeGraff (Cortland H.S./Cortland) to tie the game just three minutes later.

In the second half it was TC3 scoring first, with DeGraff playing another free kick, this time finding Danielle Wood (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) for a header to make the score 2-0 10 minutes after halftime. The lead held for nine minutes, when Hudson Valley answered. The 2-2 score held the final 24 minutes of regulation, and remained through both overtime periods, setting up the penalty kicks to determine which team would advance.

In the first round of penalty kicks, each team would find the four times, with each keeper making one save. It took until the sixth penalty kick, but Hudson Valley prevailed and remained alive in the regional playoffs.

TC3 keeper Emma Augustine (Ellenville H.S./Ellenville) had another strong game, turning away ten shots.

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.
