Blanchard, Clark, Forehand, and Graves Named All Region

November 4, 2015

NJCAA All-Region III Selections Blanchard, Clark, Forehand, Graves

Four Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer players have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region team. Sophomore Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) earned second-team honors for the second straight year, becoming the eighth player in program history to repeat as an all-region performer. Sophomores Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton) and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were joined by freshman Molly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) on the second team. The four selections tied for the most from any school, along with Herkimer College, SUNY Broome, and Genesee Community College. A total of 28 players were honored between first and second teams in voting by the coaches in Region III, the largest region in the nation.

Blanchard, a midfielder, had eight points this season on three goals and two assists. She scored the game-winner in two games, including the Panthers’ first playoff game. She is the first repeat all-region performer for the Panthers since the trio of Samijo Scheer, Kendra Wagstaff, and Paige McCarthy accomplished the feat in 2010 and 2011.

Clark and Forehand were recognized as defenders and Graves as a goalkeeper. The three helped the Panthers field one of the best defenses in the nation. Tompkins Cortland allowed 0.93 goals per game, the third best in that category in Region III and ninth best in the nation. The team posted eight shutouts in 19 games, and allowed more than two goals in a game just once.

Tompkins Cortland finished the year with a record of 12-5-2, including an undefeated mark of 5-0-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference, good enough to claim a conference co-championship. The team qualified for the Region III playoffs for the 11th straight year, advancing the Region III championship game for the first time in program history.

This also marks the 11th straight year Tompkins Cortland has been represented on the all-region team, and the tenth time during that span with multiple selections.

Panthers Season Ends in Regional Championship Game

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Playing for a regional title for the first time in program history, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer team allowed a second-half goal that proved to be the difference in a 1-0 loss at Herkimer College Sunday. The Panthers, ranked #8 in the latest NJCAA national poll, saw its nine-game unbeaten streak snapped. The team ends the year with a record of 12-5-2. Herkimer, the top seed in Region III and the #2-ranked team in the nation, advances to the NJCAA national tournament with the win.

The game was scoreless through the first 45 minutes and well into the second. After Herkimer broke through with a goal in the 75th minute, the Panthers put together a late rush, but couldn’t find the net. Tompkins Cortland keeperMolly Graves (Newark Valley H.S./Newark Valley) had another strong game in net, recording seven saves.

Following the game, sophomores Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were named to the all-tournament team. The game marked the end of the Panthers career for Blanchard, Forehand, and classmates Emma DeLisio (Onteora H.S./Woodstock), Autumn Clark (Colton-Pierrepont H.S./Colton), Rachel Bitjeman (Liberty H.S./White Sulphur), and Jenelle Milk (Greene H.S./Smithville). The group leaves having won more playoff games than any group of sophomores in program history.

Panthers Upset at Home

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Despite out-shooting its opponent 12-5, the #5-ranked Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team fell 1-0 to Genesee Community College Saturday. The first Region III loss of the season leaves TC3 with an overall record of 4-2. Genesee improves to 2-3-1.

The game’s lone goal came midway through the first half, putting TC3 behind for the first time since the second game of the year. The Panthers pressured for the equalizer the rest of the way, dominating play in the second half, but ending the game with nothing to show for it.

The Panthers travel to Broome Community College Tuesday.
