Saturday, September 23, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

After opening the season by outscoring their opponents 17-2 while winning five straight, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team has hit a rough patch. The Panthers haven’t scored while losing three straight, the most recent being a 1-0 loss at Onondaga Community College. Tompkins Cortland is now 5-3 overall, 4-3 in Region III, and 1-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Onondaga is now 5-4 overall, 4-4 in the region, and 3-2 in the MSAC.

Despite being held off the scoreboard, the Panthers didn’t lack for opportunities as the team put 10 shots on goal. On the other end of the field, goalkeeper Katie Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) registered eight saves for the Tompkins Cortland, with the game’s only goal coming off a corner kick midway through the first half.

The Panthers look to get back on track Wednesday at home against SUNY Adirondack. Game time is 4:30 p.m.

Panthers Shut Out by Nation's #1

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Taking on the #1-ranked team in the nation, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team couldn’t muster any offense, eventually falling to Erie Community College by a 3-0 final. The Panthers’ second straight shutout loss leave the team with a record of 5-2 overall and 4-2 in Region III. Erie now 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the region.

A week after suffering the first loss of a season, also a 3-0 score, the Panthers struggled to mount much of an attack. Erie enjoyed the better of play most of the game, taking the lead in the 31st minute of play and adding to it in the closing minutes of the half. The Kats made it 3-0 early in the second half, and held the Panthers off the board the rest of the way to secure the win.

Kassie Murdock (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater) had a solid game in goal with 11 saves.

The Panthers hit the road for just the second time this year, playing at Onondaga Community College on Saturday.

The third and final goal came in the closing minutes of the game, sealing the result.

Kate Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) played the entire game in goal, recoding seven saves.

The Panthers hope to get back on track Saturday at home against Erie Community College.

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team remained perfect on the season with a 4-0 win over Niagara County Community College Wednesday. The Panthers are now 5-0 overall and 4-0 in Region III. Niagara drops to 0-3 overall and in the region.

For the third straight game, the Tompkins Cortland defense effectively shut down their opponents. The offense put pressure on Niagara from the start, finally breaking through on a goal by Cecelia Swan (Cassadaga Valley H.S./Cassadaga Valley) in the 17th minute of play. Sage Garrison (Odessa-Montour H.S./Odessa) made it 2-0 in the 38th minute, tapping in a cross from Makayla Foster (Hunter-Tannersville H.S./Hunter) for the score.

The third score came early in the second half, with Serina Guilianti (Harrison H.S./Harrison) punching in a rebound of a shot by Kristin Frear (Lansing H.S./Ithaca). The last score came from Swan with 13:42 left on the clock, making the final 4-0.

Kassie Murdock (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater) and Madisyn Zimmer (Cortland H.S./Cortland) each played a half in goal, combining on four saves in the team’s third straight shutout.

Sunday, September 03, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

A big afternoon from freshman Sage Garrison (Odessa-Montour H.S./Odessa) led the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team to its fourth straight win, a 3-0 decision over North Country Community College Sunday. The victory leaves the Panthers with a record of 4-0 overall and 3-0 in Region III; North Country is now 1-3-1 overall and 1-2 in the region.

The home team enjoyed the better of play from the opening touch, but it took until the 18th minute before everything clicked. Garrison broke the ice with a goal with 27:18 left in the first half, and then just 96 seconds later, she assisted classmate Justice Pahlmann (Tioga H.S./Tioga Center) on a goal, making it 2-0. Garrison capped a big first half with a goal with 8.4 seconds left on the clock, scoring off an assist from Kelsey Clark (Homer H.S./Homer) putting the Panthers firmly in control heading into the break.

When neither team scored in the second half, the Panthers had a fourth straight win and a second straight shutout. Goalkeeper Katie Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) had four saves as the Panthers posted back-to-back shutouts for the first time since a string of three straight blankings in 2015.

Kaylie Yerdon (Cherry Valley H.S./Cherry Valley) delivered the final score of the game in the 58th minute, making the final 2-0.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The second game of the 2017 women’s soccer season was very much like the first for Tompkins Cortland – four different players scored a goal as the Panthers posted a 4-1 win. Wednesday’s opponent was Jefferson Community College as the teams opened Mid-State Athletic Conference play. Tompkins Cortland is now 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the MSAC; Jefferson is 0-2 overall and 0-1 in the MSAC.

The Panthers jumped ahead in the 14th minute of play on a goal by Kristin Frear (Lansing H.S./Ithaca) off an assist from Emily Potter (Candor H.S./Candor). The second score came in the second half, just 32 seconds into play. Cecelia Swan (Cassadaga Valley H.S./Cassadaga Valley) scored the goal, with assists to Justice Pahlmann (Tioga H.S./Tioga Center) and Frear. After Jefferson got in the board four minutes later, the Panthers pushed the lead back to a pair with an unassisted goal by Kaitlin Martin (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) in the 54th minute. The final score came with eight minutes left in the game, with Kaylie Yerdon (Cherry Valley H.S./Cherry Valley) converting an assist from Sage Garrison (Odessa-Montour H.S./Odessa).

Katie Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) earned the win in goal, posting seven saves.

Panthers Win Opener 4-1

Friday, August 25, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The 2017 women’s soccer season got off to a solid start for Tompkins Cortland Community College Friday as the Panthers posted a 4-1 win over Division I Mercyhurst North East. It was also the season-opener for the Saints.

The Panthers missed out on some chances in the opening minutes, and Mercyhurst North East took advantage by scoring the first goal in the 13th minute of play. The home team answered in the 18th minute, with Sage Garrison (Odessa-Montour H.S./Odessa) knocking in a pass from her former high-school teammate April Dunn (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine). The 1-1 tie held until Tompkins Cortland took the lead and then put the game away early in the second half.

The game-winning goal came in the seventh minute of the second half. Emily Potter (Candor H.S./Candor) found the net on a free kick from 35 yards, floating it in just over the keepers head. Just over minute later, Briana Sokol (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) got in on the act with a goal to make it 3-1, and then 47 seconds later Sokol played a perfect corner kick into the box where Kristin Frear (Lansing H.S./Ithaca) put it in for the third score in less than two minutes. The flurry made the lead 4-1, and marked the end of scoring for either team.

Kassie Murdock (Stillwater H.S./Stillwater) played the first half in goal before giving way to Katie Slocum (Candor H.S./Candor) in the second half. Each keeper made two saves.

The Panthers open Mid-State Athletic Conference play Wednesday at Jefferson Community College.

Sinnigen and Kendall Named All Region

November 15, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomores Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and Mercedes Kendall (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region women’s soccer team. Sinnigen was voted to the first team as a defender and Kendall made second team at midfield. 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.

Sinnigen led a Panthers defense that posted eight shutouts in 16 games. She was a two-year team captain and started all 16 games this season. She scored four goals and had two assists, finishing sixth on the team in scoring despite playing most of her time in the defensive end.

Kendall split time between midfield and defense and was fourth on the team in scoring with six goals and five assists. She had a pair of strings of three straight games with at least one point, helping Tompkins Cortland to a 4-1-1 mark in those games.

The Panthers finished the year with a record of 10-5-1. The Panthers advanced to the playoffs for the ninth-straight year, advancing to the semifinal round.

This also marks the ninth-straight year Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the all-region team, and the eighth time during that span with multiple selections.
