Panthers Win Road Game Over Nationally Ranked Team

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team went on the road Wednesday, and came home with a huge win over a nationally ranked team. Playing at #10-ranked Hudson Valley Community College, the Panthers jumped ahead early and stayed in front the entire way, winning 14-10. The win improves Tompkins Cortland to 3-2 overall and in Region III. Hudson Valley falls to 2-2 overall and 1-1 in Region III.

The Panthers set the tone early, scoring the first three goals. Duran Joyce (Dryden H.S./Dryden) got the scoring started with a goal with 8:52 left in the first. Two goals from Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) made it 3-0 before Hudson Valley could respond. Over the final 2:34 the teams traded goals twice, making the score 5-2 at the first break. The lead held at either two or three goals most of the second quarter, but Hudson Valley managed to pull within one at 7-6 before a late Panthers goal sent the game to the half with the visitors ahead 8-6.

The third quarter proved to be the decisive quarter, with Tompkins Cortland outscoring Hudson Valley 5-1 to lead 13-7. The Vikings made a run, pulling within three at 13-10 with 3:05 left, but the Panthers scored the game’s last goal with 1:37 left to make the final score 14-10.

The balanced attack saw five different player score goals, including three that had hat-tricks. Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) finished with seven points on four goals and three assists, while Daigle had six points on four goals and two assists. Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) had three goals and Joyce ended the day with two goals and an assist. Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) added a goal and Jonny Phillips (Cortland H.S./Cortland) had an assist. Willie Wilson (Geneva H.S./Geneva) earned the win in goal with 22 saves.

The Panthers return home Saturday to host the nation’s top-ranked team, Onondaga Community College. The noon face-off will mark the fourth nationally ranked team the Panthers have faced this season.

Panthers Drop Road Game

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

A day after putting 20 goals on the board, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team had a much tougher time finding the net when they traveled to Rochester to take on Monroe Community College. The Panthers fell behind early and, although they rallied, couldn’t make it all the way back, falling by a 17-8 final to the Tribunes. Tompkins Cortland is now 2-2 overall and in Region III. Monroe improves to 2-2 overall and 2-1 in Region III.

Monroe scored the first four goals en route to a 7-1 first-quarter lead. The Panthers rallied with four straight to open the second, narrowing the gap to 7-5, but Monroe put one in in the final minute of the half, making the score 8-5 at the half. In the third, Monroe scored five straight to take control of the game at 13-5 with three minutes left in the third. Tompkins Cortland scored to end the third down 13-6, but Monroe sealed the win by outscoring the Panthers 4-2 in the final period.

Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) scored three goals and Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) had two goals and an assist. Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) had two goals and Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) added one. Duran Joyce (Dryden H.S./Dryden), Erik Dickerson (John S. Burke Catholic H.S./Pine Bush) and Jonny Phillips (Cortland H.S./Cortland) had an assist.

Ryan Moore (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) started in goal and had seven saves in the first quarter. Willie Wilson (Geneva H.S./Geneva) played the final three quarters, registering 31 saves.

The Panthers look to get back on track Wednesday at Hudson Valley Community College.


Panthers Roll to Big Win

Saturday, March 25, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Playing for the first time in more than two weeks, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse took little time to warm up as the Panthers scored early and often while beating Mercyhurst North East 20-7 Saturday. With the win, Tompkins Cortland is now 2-1 overall and in Region III. Mercyhurt North East is 0-4 overall and 0-2 in Region III.

The Panthers scored the first goal just 19 seconds into the game, with Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) finding the net. After Mercyhurt North East tied the game two minutes later, Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) led Tompkins Cortland back ahead. After Daigle scored off an assist from Wood, the visiting Saints scored to cut the lead to 3-2 with 4:27 left in the opening quarter. It was the closest the game would get as the Panthers scored four times over the final 4:17 of the quarter and then opened the second quarter by scoring six straight to lead 13-2. A late goal by Mercyhurst made it 13-3 at the half, but the Panthers scored four straight to start the third and seal the win. Each team scored three times in the fourth to make the final 20-7.

It was a big day for the Panthers offense as the final score marked just the fourth time in program history the Panthers have reached 20 goals in a game. Wood led the way with six goals and two assists with Daigle one point behind him with five goals and two assists. Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) also scored five goals while Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) found the net twice. Duran Joyce (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Matt Bisono (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) each had a goal, and Jonny Phillips (Cortland H.S./Cortland) had an assist.

Panthers Beat Broome 15-1 in Shortened Game

Friday, March 10, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

After moving the game a day ahead in an attempt to avoid dangerous weather, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse took the field Friday against SUNY Broome. While better than the expected conditions on Saturday, the weather was far from ideal, with temperatures in the 20s at faceoff. Despite the cold, the Panthers offense was hot, scoring four goals in the first five minutes en route to a 15-1 lead after two quarters of play. With the temperature dropping and wind-chills approaching zero, the decision was made to end the game at halftime, giving the Panthers the win. Tompkins Cortland is now 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference; it was the season opener for Broome.

Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) started the scoring just 74 seconds into the game. The lead grew to 6-0 before Broome got on the board with a goal to end the first quarter. The second 15-minute period was dominated by the home team, with the Panthers outscoring the Hornets 9-0 to make the score 15-1.

Bailey Wood (Homer H.S./Cortland) led the way with five goals and an assist, followed by Daigle with four goals and an assist. Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) had three goals and an assist, Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) had two goals, Erik Dickerson (John S. Burke Catholic/Pine Bush) had one goal, and Matt Bisono (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) added an assist. Ryan Moore (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) earned the win in goal for the Panthers, recording five saves.

Next up on the schedule for the Panthers is a game Wednesday at Finger Lakes Community College.


Panthers Open Season Against National Champs

Sunday, March 05, 2017

The 2017 season opener brought a formidable challenge for the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team. The Panthers began the new year Sunday with a road game against the defending national champion and preseason #1 team, Genesee Community College. After Tompkins Cortland scored the first goal, it was all Genesee as the Cougars ran to a 27-5 win. The game was also the season opener for Genesee.

Chris Polanco (White Plains H.S./White Plains) got the season off on a positive note, finding the net in the first minute of play to put the Panthers up. Genesee answered with ten straight spanning the end of the first quarter and into the second. Polanco broke the string with his second goal to make the score 10-2 midway through the second quarter, but Genesee scored the next two to make it 12-2. With 4:25 left in the second, Jack Collmer (Vernon-Verona-Sherrill H.S./Vernon) scored off an assist from Matt Bisono (Deer Park H.S./Deer Park) to make it 12-3, but Genesee scored the final three goals of the quarter to take a 15-3 lead into the half. The third quarter was all Genesee as the Cougars put the game away by outscoring the Panthers 9-0. Polanco added two more goals in the fourth quarter, with Collmer and Nicholas Daigle (Warwick Valley H.S./Warwick) each picking up an assist.

Willie Wilson (Geneva H.S./Geneva) and Ryan Moore (Bay Shore H.S./Bay Shore) split time in goal for the Panthers, with each recording seven saves.

The Panthers host SUNY Broome Friday at 3 p.m.
