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.

Second Straight 4-1 Win for Panthers

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.

The Panthers return home this weekend to play Clinton Community College Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and North Country Community College Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
