December 17, 2014

2014 men's soccer All-American Morgan Shutter

More honors for Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer player Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), this time from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Shutter has been named to the 2014 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Men’s Division III All-America team. It’s the second straight year Shutter has been honored on the national level by the NSCAA, both years being named to the second team.

A total of 25 players were named All-Americans, and Shutter was one of just two repeat selections. He scored half of TC3’s goals this year, finding the back of the net 16 times in 18 games. He added two assists to finish with 34 points for the season and 58 for his career, leaving him tied for third on the all-time TC3 scoring list.

Shutter, who also was a two-time All-American selection by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), is a liberal arts and sciences-general studies major.

This marks the fifth-straight year TC3 men’s soccer has been represented on the All-American team.

2014 men's soccer All-American Morgan Shutter

For the second straight year, Tompkins Cortland Community College men's soccer player Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) has been named an All-American by the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA). The sophomore was named to the Division III All-America second team. A total of 22 players were honored on the list released today.  

Shutter is just the second TC3 men’s soccer player to repeat as an NJCAA All American, following Casey Burns (1998 and 1999). He is also a two-time Region III All-Region and Mid-State Athletic Conference All-Conference selection.  

He again led TC3 in scoring this year, registering 34 points on 16 goals and two assists. He tied a single-game record with four goals on October 1, and finished his two-years at TC3 tied for third in career points (56) and third in career goals (26).

Four Panthers Named All Region

November 4, 2014

2014 men's soccer all region players

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team is once again well represented on the NJCAA Region III all-region team. For the third consecutive year, four Panthers have been honored; Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn), James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh), and Jacob Czapranski (Dryden H.S./Dryden). A total of 26 players were voted onto the team by the coaches of Region III. Cayuga Community College and Herkimer College each had five selections, followed by TC3 and Mohawk Valley Community College each with four selections. The other eight selections were distributed among six schools.

Shutter is a repeat first-team selection, just the sixth time 20-year history of TC3 men’s soccer a Panther has been a two-time first-team all-region selection. He led the team in scoring with 16 goals, including five game winners. The sophomore accounted for exactly half of TC3’s goals this season.

Richards is also a repeat all-region selection, earning second-team honors two years in a row at goal keeper. He had a record of 11-4, which included seven shutouts, and his goals against average of 0.98 was the third best season ever for a Panther. He also became the first TC3 keeper ever to post a career GAA below a goal per game (0.50).

Demshick, a sophomore, shifted to the defense during the season and quickly asserted himself as a force. He was the heart of a unit that was once again one of the best in the region, while leading the team with five assists to go with five goals.

Czapranski, the lone freshman among TC3’s honorees, was one of the hardest working midfielders in the region. He was second on the team in assists with three, and had his biggest offensive game (goal and assist) in the team’s final win over Mohawk Valley.

This marks the 11th straight year TC3 has placed multiple players on the men’s soccer all-region team.

Panthers Place Four on All-MSAC

October 27, 2014

The 2014 Mid-State Athletic Conference (MSAC) men’s soccer post-season honors have been announced, and Tompkins Cortland Community College has placed four players on the all-conference team, tying for the most representatives on the 21-player squad. Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), James Demchick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh), and McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) each repeated as all-conference honorees. Freshman Bronson Harris (Seminole Ridge H.S./West Palm Beach, Fla.) completed the TC3 selections.

2014 marks the 14th consecutive season TC3 has had at least four players named all-MSAC.

Semifinal Loss Ends TC3 Men's Soccer Season

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

For the third time in the last four years, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer season came to an end with a playoff loss to Genesee Community College. Tuesday it was a 2-0 loss in the NJCAA Region III semifinals, ending TC3’s season with a final record of 12-6. Genesee advances to the Region III-A championship game vs. Herkimer College Saturday. All of the men’s and women’s Region III championship games will be played at TC3.

The game was evenly played, with TC3 taking 13 shots compared to 14 for Genesee, but the Cougars were able to capitalize on its best chances. The first goal came in the 26th minute of play, and the home team sealed the win with an insurance goal in the 77th minute to make the final 2-0.

The loss ends another strong year of TC3 men’s soccer. Over the past six years, the Panthers have advanced to at least the regional semifinal round each seasons, making it to the final three times.

Over the past 11 years the Panthers have exhibited remarkable consistency: this year marks just the second time in that span that TC3 was eliminated in its first playoff game. The Panthers have totaled at least 10 wins in all but one of those 11 years.

The loss also marks the first time in 57 games that TC3 has lost consecutive games, a string that dates back to 2011.

Andy Davis

Head Coach

Andy DavisRegion III Co-Coach of the Year
2013

MSAC Coach of the Year
2005, 2007, 2010, 2012, 2013

Coach Davis has completed nine seasons directing the TC3 men's soccer program, compiling a record of 112-53-9 and nine consecutive regional playoff appearances. The 2013 season ranks as one of the best in nation, as TC3 went undefeated during the regular season, winning another Mid-State Athletic Conference championship and advancing to the Region III championship game. Coach Davis was named the Region III Co-Coach of the Year and the MSAC Coach of the Year, and seven players were honored with all-conference, region, and/or all-American recognition.

2013 was the latest chapter in what has been an amazingly successful book for Davis. After spending 2004 as the top assistant, Davis took control of the program in 2005. His first year saw the Panthers win the MSAC title, advance to the NJCAA Region III semifinals, and finish the year ranked 14th in the nation. The 2006 campaign saw a return to the NJCAA playoffs and a national ranking as high as eighth. In 2007 the Panthers again claimed the conference title and played their way to the regional semifinals. In 2008 TC3 posted a win over nationally-ranked Genesee in the opening round of the playoffs to again advance to the quarterfinals. The 2009 season saw the Panthers win two playoff games to advance to the Region III Final Four. In 2010, after winning another MSAC title, the team made it all the way to the Region III championship game. 2011 saw the Panthers again advance to the regional title game, posting a seven-game unbeaten streak along the way. A fourth MSAC Coach of the Year award and another Region III final four appearance came in 2012.

Coach Davis brings tremendous credentials to the program, both as a player and a coach. An all-state player at Binghamton High, he was an All-American and national player of the year while leading Herkimer County Community College to the 2000 national championship. He earned a full athletic scholarship to the University of Evansville (NCAA- Division I) before finishing his playing career at SUNY Cortland. As a Red Dragon, he helped the team to their first SUNYAC title in nearly a decade. Prior to coming to TC3, he served as an assistant coach at SUNY Cortland for two seasons, helping coach the team to SUNYAC titles both seasons.

The last two seasons, Coach Davis has worked with the Greater Binghamton Futbol Club, a member of the National Premier Soccer League. He serves as the assistant coach for the Thunder, which won the NPSL Keystone Conference in 2013.

Prior to taking over the women's team, McDaniel was the first head coach of the men's program. He led the men's team for 10 years, taking the Panthers to the Regional Final Four and winning the MSAC title during his tenure.

Semifinal Loss Ends TC3 Men's Soccer Season

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

For the third time in the last four years, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer season came to an end with a playoff loss to Genesee Community College. Tuesday it was a 2-0 loss in the NJCAA Region III semifinals, ending TC3’s season with a final record of 12-6. Genesee advances to the Region III-A championship game vs. Herkimer College Saturday. All of the men’s and women’s Region III championship games will be played at TC3.

The game was evenly played, with TC3 taking 13 shots compared to 14 for Genesee, but the Cougars were able to capitalize on its best chances. The first goal came in the 26th minute of play, and the home team sealed the win with an insurance goal in the 77th minute to make the final 2-0.

The loss ends another strong year of TC3 men’s soccer. Over the past six years, the Panthers have advanced to at least the regional semifinal round each seasons, making it to the final three times.

Over the past 11 years the Panthers have exhibited remarkable consistency: this year marks just the second time in that span that TC3 was eliminated in its first playoff game. The Panthers have totaled at least 10 wins in all but one of those 11 years.

The loss also marks the first time in 57 games that TC3 has lost consecutive games, a string that dates back to 2011.


Panthers Upset at Home

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

TC3 soccer

Just a day after re-entering the NJCAA national rankings at #9, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team fell victim to an upset at home. The Panthers lost Wednesday to SUNY Broome by a final score of 2-1. TC3 ends the regular season with a record of 12-5 overall, 11-4 in Region III, and 3-3 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference while Broome is 4-12-1 overall, 4-11-1 in Region III, and 2-4 in the MSAC.

The game opened with the home team controlling play, but never putting the ball in the net. In the 19th minute of play, Broome made its first shot count, scoring on a long blast to take a 1-0 lead. The score held into the second half, when the Hornets added another goal in the 72nd minute. The Panthers finally got on board a minute later, with Nick Cowen (McGraw H.S./McGraw) feeding Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) for a score to cut the deficit in half, but it was as close as the home team could get.

Panthers Seeded #5 for Playoffs

With the loss, the Panthers dropped to the #5 seed in the NJCAA Region III playoffs. TC3 will play at #4 Genesee Community College Tuesday. The winner will advance to the Region III A championship game November 1.


Panthers Get Huge Win at Home

Saturday, October 18, 2014

TC3 soccer

The Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer picked up a huge regional win Saturday, blanking Mohawk Valley Community College 3-0. The Panthers improve to 12-4 overall and 11-3 in Region III, while Mohawk Valley, the #3-ranked team in the region, falls to 14-3 overall and 12-3 in region.

The Panthers entered the game looking to get back on track after a tough road loss to Cayuga earlier in the week. While the defense was sharp from the opening whistle, it took until the second half before the TC3 offense responded.

The game’s first goal came very early in the second half. Just two and a half minutes into play, Jacob Czapranski (Dryden H.S./Dryden) played a pretty pass to Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine), who deposited the ball into the net for the 1-0 lead. The score held until Bronson Harris (Seminole Ridge H.S./West Palm Beach, Fla.) gave the Panthers some cushion with a goal with 8:13 left on the clock. Less than three minutes later Czapranski capped a great game with highlight-reel worthy goal, blasting a shot from 45 yards out to beat the Mohawk Valley keeper and make the final 3-0.

McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) recorded three saves in goal for TC3, posting his seventh shutout of the season.

The Panthers close out the regular season at home Wednesday against SUNY Broome. Game time is 7 p.m.


Panthers Drop 5-2 Decision at Cayuga

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

For the first time since 2011, the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer will not win its conference title. The Panthers lost at Cayuga Community College Wednesday, by a final of 5-2. With the loss, TC3 drops to 11-4 overall, 10-3 in Region III, and 3-2 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Cayuga stands at 11-1 overall and in Region III, and a perfect 5-0 in conference. The win clinches the MSAC title for the Spartans, ending TC3’s two-year reign as conference champions.

After Cayuga started the game with a quick goal, TC3 tied the game in the eighth minute of play. A Ryan Taylor (Susquehanna Valley H.S./Binghamton) corner kick found Sebastien Diarra (Elmira Notre Dame/Kati, Mali), who deposited the ball into the net for the equalizer. The tie held for 18 minutes before Cayuga scored again to take a 2-1 lead. The score remained into the halftime, but the lead grew to 4-1 12 minutes into the second half. A penalty kick goal by Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) with 29:07 left on the clock made it 4-2, but Cayuga answered with a goal with 12:45 left on the clock. The game was called at that point due to darkness.

McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) recorded ten saves in goal for TC3.

The Panthers return home Saturday to host Mohawk Valley Community College.


Panthers Squeak Out Win

Saturday, October 11, 2014

TC3 soccer

It took most of the game, but the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer was finally able to convert a scoring chance and post a 1-0 win over Finger Lakes Community College Saturday. With the victory, TC3 is now 11-3 overall, 10-2 in Region III, and 3-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes drops to 7-7-1 overall, 5-5-1 in Region III, and 2-3-1 in the MSAC.

The home team controlled play for much of the game, out-shooting the Lakers by an 11-3 margin. After a scoreless first half, the Panthers finally broke through late in the second. Ryan Taylor (Susquehanna Valley H.S./Binghamton) played a corner kick in to the box, where James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) was able to get a foot on the ball and direct it to Sebastien Diarra (Elmira Notre Dame/Kati, Mali). Diarra knocked it in for the goal, giving the Panthers the lead with 8:01 left on the clock.

McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) kept the slate clean, recording three saves, including one diving stop midway through the second half that kept the game tied. The defense, led by Demshick, Ismaila Ibrahim (Kings College/Guilford, England), and Brendan Griffiths (Niskayuna H.S./Niskayuna), and Andras Tozser (Homer H.S./Homer), withstood a late Finger Lakes push to secure the sixth TC3 shutout of the year.

The Panthers travel to Cayuga Community College Wednesday.

Panthers Top Corning 3-2

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

TC3 soccer

Early offense helepd spark the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team to a 3-2 win over Corning Community College Wednesday. With the victory, TC3 is now 10-3 overall, 9-2 in Region III, and 2-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning drops to 2-7-1 overall, 2-5-1 in Region III, and 1-3 in the MSAC.

The game opened with early fireworks, as TC3 scored just 39 seconds into the game. The Panthers earned a free kick from 30 yards out, and James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) touched the ball to Kemar Jackson (DeWitt Clinton H.S./Kingston, Jamaica), who blasted it into the net for the quick goal. The home team enjoyed the better of play, but it took 25 more minutes before they would add to the lead. With 9:29 left in the first half, Corning was called for a hand ball in the box, setting up a penalty kick for the Panthers. Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) converted, doubling the lead to 2-0. A Corning goal two minutes later made the score 2-1 heading into the half.

In the second, the Panthers pushed the lead back to two goals, with Bronson Harris (Seminole Ridge H.S./West Palm Beach, Fla.) scoring on a rebound with 17:19 left in the game. A late goal by Corning with 5:23 left made it 3-2, but the Panthers defense held tight to secure the win.

McZiggy Richards (School for Human Rights/Brooklyn) earned the win in goal, recording one save and allowing one goal in 81 minutes of play. Haile Cutter (Dryden H.S./Dryden) finished the game in goal for the Panthers, notching one save.

The Panthers host Finger Lakes Community College Saturday at 3:30 p.m.


Panthers Blank Jamestown

Saturday, October 04, 2014

TC3 soccer

A strong defensive effort and timely scoring helped the Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer team to a 2-0 win over Jamestown Community College Saturday. With the victory, TC3 is now 9-3 overall and 8-2 in Region III. Jamestown drops to 4-10 overall and 2-7 in Region III.

Neither offense could mount much of an attack early. The first goal came midway through the first half, with James Demshick (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) beating the Jamestown keeper on a free kick from 40-yards out. The score remained 1-0 the rest of the half, with neither team putting forth a strong chance.

Tompkins Cortland Community College men’s soccer player Morgan Shutter (Odessa-Montour H.S./Alpine) put his name in the record book Wednesday as the Panthers posted a 5-2 home win over SUNY Adirondack. Shutter tied the TC3 record for goals in a game, finding the back of the net four times before being taken out of the game for the final 30 minutes of play.

The first TC3 tally came with 26:52 left in the first half, and was the result of a pass from Kemar Jackson (DeWitt Clinton H.S./Kingston, Jamaica) to Nick Cowen (McGraw H.S./McGraw), who finished the play for the first goal of his collegiate career. Just over a minute later, Shutter put the Panthers ahead with an unassisted goal, the first of three straight scores for the sophomore. His second goal made it 3-1 in favor of the Panthers with 23:43 left in the first half, this one coming on a play started by a direct kick from midfield by Andras Tozser (Homer H.S./Homer). Two minutes and four seconds later, Shutter completed his five-minute hat-trick with a penalty kick, making the score 4-1 and ending the first-half scoring.

The second half started much like the first, with the visitors getting a quick score, this time cutting the lead to 4-2 just 23 seconds into the half. The Panthers answered 15 minutes later, with a play that started in the defensive end, featured a head-flick pass from Cowen, and ended with Shutter tying the school record with his fourth goal of the game.

The five goals marked a season-high for the Panthers. Freshman Haile Cutter (Dryden H.S./Dryden) earned his first collegiate win in goal, recording three saves.
