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.

Highlights–2006 Men's Soccer

Panthers Upset in Playoff

Saturday, October 21, 2006

The TC3 men's soccer season came to a disappointing end with an emotionally-charged first round playoff loss Saturday. The Panthers, the eighth seed in the NJCAA Region III tournament, lost to ninth seed Finger Lakes Community College 2-1. TC3 ends the season with a record of 11-8 overall while Finger Lakes improves to 10-6-1. Finger Lakes advances to the regional quarterfinal Tuesday at top-seed Herkimer County Community College.
 
After a scoreless first half, the visitors broke through early in the second period. In the 47th minute, Josh Schneider found the back of the net to make it 1-0. Just eight minutes later the lead moved to 2-0 when Josh Gascon scored on a header.
 
The Panthers finally answered in 61st minute, when Kyle Stone was fouled in the box, drawing a penalty kick. Ben Kalweit converted to cut TC3's deficit to 2-1. Despite out-shooting Finger Lakes 14-5 on the game, it would be the only score for the Panthers as the visitors held on for the win.
 
The loss left TC3 with a season split with their Mid-State Athletic Conference rival, having won at Finger Lakes earlier this year. It also marks the first time the Panthers have lost in the first round of the playoffs since 2002.

Panthers Post Dramatic Win Over Nationally-Ranked Cayuga

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

The TC3 men's soccer team closed out the regular season in fine fashion Wednesday, beating the 15th-ranked team in the country in dramatic fashion. The Panthers scored the winning goal in the closing minutes to beat Cayuga Community College 2-1, the second straight year the Panthers have taken down the Spartans while Cayuga was nationally ranked. Last year, TC3 beat Cayuga 1-0 while they were ranked 6th in the nation. The victory means TC3 ends the regular season with a record of 11-7 overall, 9-7 in Region III competition, and 4-2 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Cayuga ends its regular season 9-5-3 overall and 4-1-1 in MSAC. As a result of today's game, Broome Community College claims the MSAC title with a conference record of 5-1.
 
A physical contest in the first half saw both teams miss opportunities, with each team hitting the post on a shot. The second half saw TC3 break through early. In the 49th minute, Kyle Stone cashed in on a direct kick from about 25 yards to give the Panthers the lead. The score held up until the 73rd minute, when Cayuga's Marcus Capeder tied the score, setting the stage for a fantastic finish.
 
With the clock clicking towards overtime, TC3 put together a run that ended with Ben Kalweit feeding Jeremy Parent for the game-winner in the 88th minute. A strong push by Cayuga ended with just five seconds left on the clock when a close-range shot bounced off the post, securing the win for the Panthers.
 
Brian Greene was strong in goal, recording six saves.
 
The win helps TC3's case for a bid to the NJCAA Region III playoffs. Seedings will be announced this evening, with the playoffs starting on Saturday.

Panthers Pound Jefferson

Sunday, October 15, 2006

Needing at least one win over the final two regular season games to become eligible for postseason play, the TC3 men's soccer team came out Sunday and blasted Jefferson Community College 7-2 on Sunday to take care of matters. The win assures TC3 of finishing the regular season with at least a .500 record in regional play. TC3 is now 10-7 overall and 8-7 in Region III competition. Jefferson ends its season 1-12-1.
 
Despite the lopsided final score, it was Jefferson who got out to the quick start. Just 59 seconds into play Ben Keichle drove down the right side and ripped a shot that beat the TC3 keeper to give the visitors an early lead. It took just over two minutes for TC3 to respond, with Josh Mitchell taking a pass from Todd Van Loon and scoring to make it 1-1. It was the 16th minute that saw TC3 take the lead for good, with Ben Kalweit earning a penalty kick and converting to make it 2-1.
 
Van Loon made it 3-1 in the 23rd minute before Jefferson's Walter Gates scored on a penalty kick to close the gap to 3-2. It would be the last positive moment for the visitors, as TC3's offense moved into high gear. With just over a minute left in the half, Kalweit made it 4-2 with a left-footed goal, giving the Panthers momentum heading into the break.
 
In the second half, Mitchell scored his second goal of the game and third in the two games since making the move from goalkeeper to striker, making it 5-2 with a score in the 56th minute. Ten minutes late, a yellow card on Jefferson gave TC3 a direct kick just outside the box, which Mitch Munson cashed in to make it 6-2. The final tally came in the 82nd minute, when Matt Vermeulen scored off an assist from Tim Parsons.
 
TC3 closes out the regular season at Cayuga Community College Wednesday.

Panthers Rebound with Big Win

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

The TC3 men's soccer team rebounded from its worst defeat of the year with a big win Wednesday, edging Fulton-Montgomery Community College 2-1 in double overtime. The Panthers improve to 9-7 overall and 7-7 in Region III competition. Fulton-Montgomery falls to 9-6 overall and in regional action.
 
Just days after Sunday's loss at Genesee made it seven shutout defeats in the last nine outings, the Panthers shook up the lineup. Josh Mitchell, the starting goalkeeper in all 15 previous games, was moved to striker and responded with several good runs early. The move appeared to pay off early, when the TC3 attack slid a ball past the Fulton-Montgomery keeper. Unfortunately for the home team, the keeper was able to coral the ball before the officials realized it had crossed the end line, keeping the game scoreless.
 
The game's first tally came in the 31st minute when Charlemagne Jeanpierre got behind the TC3 defense and slid a perfect shot under a diving Brian Greene to make it 1-0. The Panthers responded in the 43rd minute when Ben Kalweit found Joe Dutton on the right side about 35 yards out. Dutton launched a blast that ricocheted off the far post into the net, evening the score heading into the halftime break.
 
The second half saw both teams enjoy opportunities, but nether able to capitalize. The same was the case in the first overtime period, setting the stage for a dramatic finish.
 
Just moments into the second overtime, TC3 pushed the ball up in the offensive end. Playing from the right wing, Todd Van Loon played a beautiful cross to the front of the goal where Mitchell delivered, heading the ball past the keeper for the game-winner.
 
Greene registered five saves to earn the win in his first collegiate start. The win leaves TC3 at an even .500 in regional play with two games left. A win in either contest would make the Panthers eligible for an NJCAA playoff birth. The Panthers hope to secure that eligibility in the home finale Sunday against Jefferson Community College. Game time is 2:00 p.m.

Panthers Overwhelmed at Genesee

Sunday, October 08, 2006

Playing on the road against one of the top teams in the region, the TC3 men's soccer team suffered a 7-0 defeat Sunday. The Panthers, who have struggled on the offensive end for much of the last two weeks, lost to Genesee Community College to fall to 8-7 overall and 6-7 in Region III competition. Genesee, the third ranked team in the region, is now 10-2-1 overall and 10-1-1 in regional action.
 
Sunday's game was never in doubt, as the home team took control early. In the 13th minute, Takahiro Okada scored the first of his two goals on the afternoon to give the Cougars the lead. In the 20th minute, Tristan Watson scored to make it 2-0 starting a disastrous stretch for the Panthers.
 
In the 23rd minute, Genesee scored twice, followed by another tally just eight minutes later. The final score of the half came on a penalty kick in the 44th minute. A goal in the 77th minute made the final 7-0.
 
With just three regular season games left, TC3 needs to win at least twice to finish with a record of .500 in regional action. The Panthers hope to get the first of those wins Wednesday when Fulton-Montgomery Community College comes to Dryden for a 4:00 p.m. start.

Panthers Snap Scoreless Skid, Beat Corning

Thursday, October 05, 2006

For the first time in nearly two weeks, the TC3 men's soccer team had something to celebrate. After opening the season with a six-game winning streak sparked by a high-power offense, the Panthers went into a scoring funk that finally came to an end Thursday with a 4-1 win over Corning Community College. The win snaps a four-game losing streak and improves TC3 to 8-6 overall and 2-2 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning falls to 3-8 overall and 1-4 in the MSAC.
 
The first goal snapped a scoreless streak that covered over 370 minutes of play. In the 17th minute of Thursday's game, a direct kick by Joe Dutton led to a goal by Todd Van Loon to give the Panthers the early lead. The second tally came in the 59th minute, when Ben Kalweit capitalized on a penalty kick, scoring despite the Corning keeper making an initial stop.
 
Corning cut the lead in half in the 63rd minute, when Vincent Serio scored on a direct kick from just outside the box, drilling a shot off the far post into the net. TC3 responded ten minutes later, with Mitch Munson feeding a long pass to a streaking Kalweit, who beat the keeper to make it 3-1. The final tally came in the 85th minute, with Joe Smith taking a pass from Anthony Rizzo and working his way behind the defense to sink his shot.
 
TC3 keeper Josh Mitchell earned the win with a pair of saves.
 
TC3 travels to Genesee Community College Sunday.

Offensive Woes Continue for Panthers

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

Saturday, September 30, 2006

The TC3 men's soccer team's losing streak hit three games in a row Saturday as the Panthers dropped a 5-0 decision to the number one-ranked team in the country.

Herkimer improves to 11-0 overall and 8-0 in regional play.

The second half was scoreless until the closing minutes when Herkimer added a pair. In the 86th minute, Ayinde George headed in a goal to make it 4-0. Less than two minutes later, David Baldanza made it 5-0 with an unassisted goal.
 
TC3 keeper Josh Mitchell played well in defeat, recording six saves.

Panthers Pull Out Last-Minute Win

Sunday, August 27, 2006

A goal with 15 seconds left in the game was the difference as the TC3 men's soccer team pulled out a 2-1 win over Bunker Hill Community College Sunday in the finale of the TC3 Northeast Cup. TC3 improves to 2-0 while Bunker Hill, from Boston, Massachusetts, falls to 0-2.
 
A day after lighting up the scoreboard with five goals, the Panthers looked to stay the on the offensive Sunday. Just 25 seconds into the game, Todd Van Loon (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) worked his way free to rip a shot that the Bunker Hill keeper needed a diving stop to keep out of the net. Several early TC3 attacks were stopped before Bunker Hill mounted their own challenge. A spectacular save by TC3 keeper Joshua Mitchell (Southern Cayuga HS/Genoa) in the 19th minute kept the scoreboard clean, but Bunker Hill took the lead in the 21st minute when a direct kick by Youssef Benkinrane found an opening on the wet field to make it 1-0. TC3's first deficit of the season was short-lived, as the Panthers responded less than two minutes later.
 
With TC3 on the attack, a cross was played into the box, where Jesse Clawson (Tully HS/Tully) was fouled to set up a penalty kick. Ben Kalweit (Southern Cayuga HS/Aurora) cashed in on the free kick to make it 1-1. The tie lasted until nearly the end of the game, but in the final minute, TC3 took advantage of another foul to pull out the win.
 
With time running out, TC3 earned a direct kick from 45 yards out. Freshman Joe Dutton (Millennium HS/New York City) stepped up and delivered a blast that made it past the Bunker Hill keeper for the winner.
 
Mitchell recorded 10 saves to earn his second win of the season.

Saturday, August 26, 2006

The Panthers took control of the game early, missing out on a couple of chances before Todd Van Loon (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) opened the scoring. Taking a breakaway in the 12th minute, Van Loon ripped a shot that the Holyoke keeper made an initial save, but when the rebound got away, Van Loon knocked it in for the tally. Four minutes later, Jeremy Parent (Old Forge HS/Webb) converted a pass from Joe Dutton (Millennium HS/New York City) to make it 2-0. The lead was threatened in the 27th minute when Holyoke earned a direct kick just outside the box, but TC3 keeper Joshua Mitchell (Southern Cayuga HS/Genoa) made a diving save to keep the score 2-0 heading into the half.
 
The Panthers continued the attack early in the second half.
