December 17, 2014

2014 women's soccer All-American Hannah Wildenstein

Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer player Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Dryden) has been named to the 2014 NSCAA/Continental Tire Junior College Women’s Division III All-America team. Wildenstein was among the 24 players honored as All-Americans, being named to the second team as a forward.

Wildenstein, who also was named all-NJCAA Region III and all-Mid-State Athletic Conference, led TC3 in scoring with 12 goals. Combined with her four assists, she had a role in 40% of TC3’s goals. She also scored the game winner in four of the team’s seven wins, helping the Panthers advance to the NJCAA Region III semifinals.

A member of the TC3 chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges, Wildenstein is a business administration.

Wildenstein, DeGraff, Blanchard Named All Region

November 4, 12014

2014 women's soccer all region players

Three Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s soccer players have been voted to the NJCAA Region III all-region team. Sophomores Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville) and Amanda DeGraff (Cortland H.S./Cortland) have been named to the first team; freshman Devin Blanchard (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) earned second-team honors. 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.

 

Wildenstein, a forward, led the TC3 offense by playing a role in 16 of the team’s 40 goals this year. She was top on the team with 12 goals and scored at least one point in all seven of the team’s wins. The two-year starter also earned all-conference honors from the Mid-State Athletic Conference this year.

 

DeGraff anchored a TC3 defense that posted seven shutouts and allowed a single goal five other times. She scored two goals and had two assists, including a goal and an assist in the Panthers’ semifinal playoff game. DeGraff also earned all-conference honors this year, her second-straight season earning that recognition.

 

Blanchard was selected to the second team as a midfielder. She led the team with five assists and was third in total scoring with 15 points. She had a seven-point game in TC3’s win over Corning Community College, making her the first Panthers in four years to reach that mark in a single game.

 

TC3 finished the year with a record of 7-8-4. The Panthers advanced to the semifinal round of the Region III playoffs, getting eliminated on penalty kicks after playing to a tie. It was the second straight year the Panthers lost in the semifinal rounds, and the tenth straight year TC3 made it into the playoffs. This also marks the tenth-straight year TC3 has been represented on the all-region team, and the ninth time during that span with multiple selections.

Three Panthers Named All-Conference

October 27, 2014

Three members of the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team have been voted to the Mid-State Athletic Conference All-Conference team for 2014. Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville), Amanda DeGraff (Cortland H.S./Cortland), and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) were among the 20 players voted to the all-conference team by the coaches from the seven MSAC soccer programs. TC3 tied for the third most all-MSAC players.

It was the first all-conference selection for Wildenstein and Forehand; DeGraff was named all-MSAC last year while playing for Finger Lakes Community College.

TC3 has had at least three all-MSAC players each year since 2005.

Heartbreaking End for Panthers

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

Just days after advancing in dramatic fashion in the opening round of the 2014 NJCAA Region III women’s soccer playoffs, the #12-seed Tompkins Cortland Community College Panthers came oh-so-close to pulling off another upset. TC3 took #4 Hudson Valley Community College to the limit, tying at 2-2 after double-overtime before being eliminated in penalty kicks. TC3 ends the season in the Region III-A semifinal round while Hudson Valley advances to take on top-seed Herkimer College in the Region III-A championship game, being played Saturday at TC3.

Tuesday’s game was a rematch of the season-opener, won by Hudson Valley by a final of 2-0. In the season opener, the Panthers struggled to keep up with the deeper Vikings. This time around, TC3 again had a much shorter bench, but the action on the field was very even. In the first half, the Vikings scored in the 24th minute, but TC3 answered with a long goal on a free kick by Amanda DeGraff (Cortland H.S./Cortland) to tie the game just three minutes later.

In the second half it was TC3 scoring first, with DeGraff playing another free kick, this time finding Danielle Wood (Cincinnatus H.S./Cincinnatus) for a header to make the score 2-0 10 minutes after halftime. The lead held for nine minutes, when Hudson Valley answered. The 2-2 score held the final 24 minutes of regulation, and remained through both overtime periods, setting up the penalty kicks to determine which team would advance.

In the first round of penalty kicks, each team would find the four times, with each keeper making one save. It took until the sixth penalty kick, but Hudson Valley prevailed and remained alive in the regional playoffs.

TC3 keeper Emma Augustine (Ellenville H.S./Ellenville) had another strong game, turning away ten shots.

Highlights–

Panthers Fall in Final Four

Saturday, October 29, 2005

A match-up between two of the top ranked teams in the nation lived up to its billing, but unfortunately for the TC3 women's soccer team, the end result was a loss and the end of the season as the Panthers lost in the NJCAA Region III Final Four to Mohawk Valley Community College, 2-1. TC3, ranked #7 in the nation and seeded #3 in the region, ends the season with a record of 15-3. Mohawk Valley, ranked #3 in the nation and seeded #2 in the region, advances to the regional final against Herkimer County Community College on Sunday.
 
Playing in the first Final Four in the history of the program, the TC3 women were understandably tense early, and Mohawk Valley, the two-time defending regional champs, took advantage. Just eight minutes into the game, Mohawk Valley's Pamela Wilday opened the scoring with an unassisted goal. The score seemed to settle the Panthers down, as the teams played evenly the rest of the half, giving Mohawk Valley the 1-0 lead at the break.
 
Ten minutes into the second half, Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) tied the game off an assist from Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam). The deadlock lasted until the closing minutes, when Colleen Reitz scored the game-winner for Mohawk Valley with five minutes left to play.
 
The loss ended what has been a breakout season for TC3 women's soccer. The Panthers went undefeated in Mid-State Athletic Conference play, winning the team's first conference title. Five Panthers were named all-conference, and Kowalczyk was voted the conference player of the year, the first time a TC3 women's soccer player has been honored in such a way. First-year coach Mick McDaniel also claimed the coach of the year honors, giving the TC3 women's soccer program a clean sweep of the conference, and the major conference awards, giving credence to claims that the 2005 TC3 women's soccer team was the best in the history of the program.

Panthers Beat Broome in Home Playoff Game
TC3 Advances to Regional Final Four

Tuesday, October 25, 2005

The first playoff appearance in the history of TC3 women's soccer was a successful one as the Panthers shut out Broome Community College, 2-0, in NJCAA Region III playoff action on Tuesday. With the win, the Panthers advance to the Final Four this weekend in Herkimer. TC3 is now 15-2 overall. Broome's season ends with a record of 12-6.
 
The game was a rematch of a Mid-State Athletic Conference game, also won by TC3 2-0 at Broome three weeks ago. As in the first meeting, TC3 held Broome off the scoreboard thanks to the strong play of goalkeeper Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) and defenders Karisa Eaton (Cincinnatus HS/Willet), Jeanie Mowry (McGraw HS/McGraw), Tiffany Hickson (Cincinnatus HS/Cincinnatus), and Gina Eaton (McGraw HS/McGraw).
 
It took the offense until after halftime to get up to speed. The pressure started in the opening minutes of the second half, when Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) ripped a shot from 30 yards that the Broome keeper was just able to punch over the crossbar. The Panthers kept applying pressure and finally scored in the 58th minute, when Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) played a crossing pass to Kowalczyk, who put it in the net for the 1-0 lead. The game stayed at 1-0 until the 84th minute, when Sutton converted a direct kick from 40 yards out, blasting a shot that the keeper was able to get a hand on, but wasn't able to keep out of the goal.
 
The win puts TC3 in the Final Four against the winner of today's games between #2 seed-Mohawk Valley Community College and #7 Finger Lakes Community College. The semifinal will be at Herkimer County Community College at 12:15 p.m. on Saturday.

TC3 Blanks Corning
Panthers Perfect in MSAC

Sunday, October 16, 2005

The regular season came to a successful close for the TC3 women's soccer team, as the Panthers shut out Corning Community College, 3-0, on Sunday. TC3 finished atop the Mid-State Athletic Conference with a perfect record of 6-0. The Panthers improved to 14-2 overall, winners of 10 straight. The team now awaits a bid to the NJCAA Region III playoffs. Seeds will be announced Wednesday, with the first round of the playoffs starting on Saturday.
 
At Corning, TC3 controlled play from the start. The first goal came in the 28th minute, with Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) scoring off a feed from Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) to make it 1-0 at the half.
 
The second goal came just moments after halftime, with Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) scoring off an assist by Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) in the 47th minute. The final tally came in the 77th minute, when Mikaela Bravo-Cullen (Dryden HS/Dryden) scored her first collegiate goal, converting a corner kick from Finton for the score.
 
Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) posted two saves for the win, her seventh shutout of the season, setting a new TC3 record. The old record was six, set by Kelley Ryan in 1998.

Panthers Clinch MSAC Title

Friday, October 14, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team won its first Mid-State Athletic Conference championship Friday with a 4-2 win at Jefferson Community College. The win improves TC3 to 5-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and clinches the conference title for the Panthers. The win, TC3's eighth straight overall, improves the Panthers to 13-2. Jefferson falls to 3-11 overall and 1-5 in the MSAC.
 
The soggy conditions seemed to have a dampening effect on the TC3 offense in the first half, as the Panthers failed to score and trailed at the break. Jefferson took the lead on a goal by Rebecca Bullock off a corner kick in the 39th minute, and held the 1-0 advantage into the half.
 
The lead didn't last long, though, as the Panthers came out of the break playing with an increased sense of urgency. Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) tied the game just three minutes in the second half, scoring off an assist by Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool). Six minutes later, Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) gave TC3 the lead with a goal, assisted by Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca). In the 65th minute, the same duo combined to give TC3 the lead 3-1. Jefferson cut the lead to 3-2 with a goal by Lacey Malbeuf in the 74th minute, but Sutton's second goal of the day, this one in the 85th minute, made the final 4-2. Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) assisted on the final tally for TC3.
 
TC3 travels to Corning Sunday for a 1:00 p.m. game. It is the regular season finale for the Panthers.

Panthers Blank Delhi

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

The fifth straight shutout by goalkeeper Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) helped the TC3 women's soccer team stretch its winning streak to seven as the Panthers topped SUNY Delhi 2-0 on Wednesday. The Panthers, ranked #8 in this week's NJCAA national poll, are now 12-2. Delhi falls to 5-3-1.
 
Delhi came into the game having allowed just two goals all season, and their defense did a good job keeping the Panthers attack in check for most of the game. At the same time, TC3's defense was holding firm, getting several outstanding saves by Salisbury to keep things scoreless for the first 70 minutes. In the 70th minute, TC3 finally broke through, with Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) converting a pass from Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) to make it 1-0. Nine minutes later, Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) scored an insurance goal on a pass from Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) to make the final 2-0.
 
Salisbury finished with 12 saves for the shout, her fifth straight and sixth of the season, tying the TC3 single-season record. Kelley Ryan set the current record in 1998.
 
TC3 travels to Watertown Friday for a game with Jefferson Community College.

Saturday, October 08, 2005

The first tally came on a shot by Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) off a pass from Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam), giving the Panthers the 1-0 lead they took into the half.
 
Playing with a strong wind at their back in the second half, the Panthers doubled their lead ten minutes into play. Kowalczyk, the eighth leading scorer in the nation, gave TC3 a 2-0 lead, scoring a goal off a pass by Tiffany Hickson (Cincinnatus HS/Cincinnatus). The final goal came in the 84th minute, with Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) converting an assist from Finton for the score.

Panthers Top Nation's #10-Ranked Team

Tuesday, October 04, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer remained perfect in Mid-State Athletic Conference play by beating one of the nation's best teams on their home field Tuesday. TC3 ran its winning streak to five games with a 2-0 victory over Broome Community College. The win improves the Panthers to 10-2 overall and 4-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome, ranked #10 in this week's NJCAA Division III national poll, falls to 8-5 overall and 4-1 in the MSAC. It was the first time in the history of TC3 women's soccer that the Panthers have beaten Broome.

Panthers Push Win Streak to Four

Saturday, October 01, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer ran its winning streak to four games with a 2-0 home victory over Jamestown Community College. The win, TC3's second straight shutout and third in four games, improves the Panthers to 9-2 while Jamestown falls to 6-2.
 
TC3's offense, the third most productive in Region III, looked sluggish early. Despite controlling play most of the half, TC3 failed to convert several opportunities for the fist 40 minutes of play. The ice-breaker finally came in the 42nd minute, when goalkeeper Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) made a save, punted the ball to midfield, and watched as the ball hopped over a Jamestown defender to a streaking Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam). Kowalczyk ran her personal scoring streak to nine games by beating the Jamestown keeper for the first goal of the game.
 
The lead remained 1-0 until the 62nd minute. Karisa Eaton (Cincinnatus HS/Willet) played a direct kick from just inside midfield, finding Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) on the left side of the box. When the Jamestown keeper came out, Smith beat her to the left, side-footing the ball across the line for the final tally.
 
Salisbury recorded three saves for her second straight shutout.
 
TC3 travels to Broome Community College Tuesday.

Panthers Shut Out Morrisville

Wednesday, September 28, 2005

Playing on the road for just the second time this season, the TC3 women's soccer team seemed very comfortable, shutting out Morrisville State 5-0 Wednesday. The Panthers are now 8-2 while Morrisville drops to 4-7.
 
The scoring started early for the Panthers. In the third minute of the game, Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) put TC3 on the board, scoring off an assist Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden). Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) made it 2-0 in the 18th minute, assisted by Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca). The lead grew to 3-0 a minute later, with Finton getting her second goal of the day off an assist by McManus.
 
The scoring parade continued in the second half, with Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) getting in on the act in the 58th minute, with Finton picking up the assist. Lauren Johnson (Avoca HS/Avoca) scored her first goal of the season in the 72nd minute, with Kowalczyk on the assist.
 
Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) earned the win, turning away Morrisville's only shot on goal as TC3 out shot the home team 15-1.
 
TC3 hosts Jamestown Community College Saturday at 2:00 p.m. It is the final home regular season game for TC3.

Panthers Work Overtime for Win

Sunday, September 25, 2005

A goal 41 seconds into the second overtime was the difference as the TC3 women's soccer team posted a 4-3 win over Genesee Community College at home on Sunday. The Panthers are now 7-2 overall while Genesee drops to 2-4.
 
The Panthers looked flat early, with Genesee getting the better of play for much of the 20 minutes. The visitors took an early lead in the 25th minute on a goal by Stefanie Stedman, but TC3 responded five minutes later, with Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) scoring on an unassisted goal. Genesee recaptured the lead in the 39th minute, as Danielle Koers took advantage of a ball mishandled by the TC3 keeper. The lead almost lasted until halftime, but a late rush by TC3 ended with Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) scoring off an assist by Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) with just one second left on the clock.
 
The home team took the lead for the first time in the early moments of the second half, as Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) played a direct kick to Sutton, who side-footed the ball into the side of the net for a 3-2 lead in the 48th minute. The lead held until the 70th minute, when Genesee's Stedman collected her second goal of the game, as some miscommunication in the TC3 backfield cost the Panthers. It proved to be the final goal of regulation, as the two teams played the next 20 minutes of regulation and 10 minutes of the first overtime without scoring.
 
In the second overtime, Genesee took control to open play, but TC3 quickly gained possession and moved on the attack. The winning goal came on a play that started with McManus on the left wing, feeding a pretty pass to Finton on the attack. Finton's shot on goal was saved by the Genesee keeper, but a hustling Kowalczyk was in perfect position for the rebound and the game winner. TC3 hits the road for just the second time this year, traveling to Morrisville State on Wednesday.

Panthers Improve to 3-0 in MSAC

Wednesday, September 21, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team improved to 3-0 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference with a 3-0 win over Finger Lakes Community College at home on Wednesday. The Panthers are now 5-2 overall while Finger Lakes falls to 1-3-1 overall and 1-2-2 in the MSAC.
 
TC3 came into the contest with third highest scoring offense in the region, but it took most of the first half before the Panthers found the back of the net. In the 32nd minute, Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) broke through with a goal to give the Panthers the lead. Kowalczyk, who is fourth-leading individual scorer in the region, made it a two goal game just seconds before the end of the half, beating the Finger Lakes keeper with four ticks left on the clock to make it 2-0 at the break.
 
The second half was very similar to the first, with TC3 controlling action but taking most of the half to find the net. In the 75th minute, Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) took a pass from Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) in the box, beat a defender and popped a shot past the keeper for the third score. TC3 threatened several times the rest of the way, including having a pair of shots bounce off the crossbar and post, but never increased the margin.
 
Angelina Garofalo (Eldred HS/Eldred) and Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) split time in goal, registering a total of four saves.
 
TC3 returns to action Sunday, hosting Mercyhurst Northeast at 3:00 p.m. The game is part of the TC3 Alumni Association's "Tailgate '05" event, which will include a chicken barbeque and both men's and women's soccer games.

TC3 Falls to Third-Ranked Team

Sunday, September 18, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team's three-game winning streak came to an end Sunday with a 4-2 loss to Clinton Community College. The Panthers are now 4-2 while Clinton, ranked third in the latest NJCAA Region III poll, improves to 3-2.
 
A day after not allowing a single shot on goal, the TC3 was pressured early. Clinton's Saania Duprey gave the visitors the lead in the opening minutes, scoring off an assist from Elizabeth Everett. The lead held most of the first half, until TC3's combination of Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) and Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) teamed up to tie the score in the 41st minute. The play started with Smith taking a direct kick that sailed over the defense. Kowalczyk took a perfect route to the ball and after a bounce, made a leaping header that looped over the Clinton keeper to make it 1-1 at the half.
 
Like they did in the first half, Clinton came out and scored quickly to start the second period, with Elizabeth Everett poking in a ball after a scramble in front of the net. Clinton's lead grew to 3-1 in the 64th minute when TC3 tried to clear a Clinton corner kick, but the ball ended up bouncing off another TC3 player and into the net. Clinton made it 4-1 seconds later on a goal by Cierra Venne. The final score of the game came on another Kowalczyk goal. With TC3 on the attack in the 70th minute, Kowalczyk corralled a bouncing loose ball just outside, headed it to herself and then fired a shot past the keeper for her second goal of the game.
 
Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) had a solid game in goal, registering six saves.
 
TC3 returns to Mid-State Athletic Conference play Wednesday. The Panthers hosts Finger Lakes Community College at 4 p.m.

Six Panthers Score in Big Win

Saturday, September 17, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team posted a dominating win over North Country Community College Saturday, as six different Panthers scored a goal. The Panthers topped the visitors 6-0, not allowing a single shot on goal in the Region III home contest. The Panthers are now 4-1 while North Country falls to 0-4.
 
TC3 scored early, taking a commanding lead just minutes after the opening whistle. In the fourth minute, Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland) opened the scoring, converting a pass from Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) to take the lead. Exactly one minute later, Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) finished a scramble in front of the goal with a goal, making it 2-0. In the 22nd minute, Kowalczyk scored the final goal of the half, taking a pass from Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) and beating the keeper to make it 3-0.
 
The second half featured more offense for the Panthers, as Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) scored an unassisted goal in the 60th minute. In the 70th minute, the combination of Finton and Kowalczyk worked again, this time with Finton scoring with an assist to Kowalczyk. The final tally of the game came on an unassisted goal by Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) in the 80th minute.
 
Angelina Garofalo (Eldred HS/Eldred) had a quiet game in goal for the Panthers, as TC3 out-shot North Country 32-0.

Panthers Improve to 2-0 in MSAC

Sunday, September 11, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team improved to 2-0 in Mid-State Athletic Conference games with a 3-1 win Sunday over SUNY Canton. The Panthers are now 3-1 overall while Canton falls to 0-3-1 overall and 0-1 in the MSAC.
 
TC3 enjoyed the advantage in play from the start, missing on opportunities in the 17th and 19th minutes before finally putting one past the Canton keeper in the 21st minute. The scoring play started with Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) pushing the ball down the right side and feeding it to Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) in front of the goal for the score. The goal would be the only one of the half, leaving the halftime score 1-0.
 
The second half followed the same pattern, with TC3 getting several opportunities before cashing in. In the 68th minute, Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer) threaded a pass to Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam), who ripped a shot the keeper couldn't handle, making it 2-0. The lead grew to 3-0 a minute later, when Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) took a corner that Smith poked to Sutton in front of the goal for her second tally of the day. Canton ruined the shutout in the 74th minute on a direct kick by Brandi Moran that found the net after a bad hop and a mis-hit by a TC3 defender. It proved to be the final score of the game, as TC3 held on for the 3-1 win.
 
The Panthers are off until the weekend, when they host North Country Community College at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Clinton Community College at noon on Sunday.

Panthers Win MSAC Opener

Saturday, September 10, 2005

A second-half rally propelled the TC3 women's soccer team to a 2-1 win Saturday in the Mid-State Athletic Conference opener against Cayuga Community College. The win improves TC3 to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in the MSAC. Cayuga is now 0-4-1 overall and 0-1 in the MSAC.
 
TC3 was in a hole early, as a shot from Cayuga's Brittany Purdy from 25 yards out took a bad hop and ended in the goal, giving the visitors the 1-0 lead in the 12th minute. The Panthers looked to respond, threatening most of the first half, but failing to score the equalizer.
 
The tying score came early in the second half, but not before an exceptional play by TC3 defender Jeanie Mowry (McGraw HS/McGraw). Ten minutes in the second half, a loose ball got away from TC3 goalkeeper Angelina Garofalo (Eldred HS/Edlred), leaving a Cayuga player with what appeared to be an open goal. Before she could put the ball in the net, though, Mowry came back and made a body save, keeping the ball out of the net and keeping TC3 within one goal. It proved to be a big play when TC3 tied the score five minutes later.
 
In the 60th minute, Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca) drove towards the right corner before sending a crossing pass. The pass took a hop, bounced off TC3's Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam), and right to Danielle Salisbury (Cortland HS/Cortland), who banged it home for a 1-1 tie. The game remained tied just ten minutes, as the game-winner was scored in the 70th minute on the prettiest goal of the day.
 
Kowalczyk started the play by pushing the ball up the field before passing off to Sherry Buxo (Boys and Girls HS/Brooklyn). Buxo continued the push before getting double-teamed, when she returned the ball to Kowalczyk at the top of the box. As the Cayuga keeper came out to challenge the play, Kowalczyk chipped the ball perfectly over her head and into the net. The score gave TC3 the lead and solid defense the rest of the way gave the Panthers the win.
 
The Panthers look to make it two in a row when they host SUNY Canton at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Panthers Fall in Opener

Tuesday, September 06, 2005

The TC3 women's soccer team enjoyed a strong start and a strong finish to their season-opening game at Alfred State Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the middle part of the game proved costly as TC3 lost 6-4. TC3 is now 1-1, with the win coming in a forfeit from Erie. Alfred State improves to 2-0.
 
The offense started quickly for the Panthers, as TC3 jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first twenty minutes. Jackie McManus (Liverpool HS/Liverpool) opened the scoring, converting a pass from Heather Kowalczyk (Broadalbin-Perth HS/Amsterdam) in the seventh minute. Kowalczyk made it 2-0 in the 13th minute, with an assist from Caitlin Smith (Ithaca HS/Ithaca). Kowalczyk tallied her second goal, this time from an assist by Ashley Finton (Homer HS/Homer), to make it 3-0 in the 20th minute. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the 20-minute mark was the point the team hit a dry spell.
 
Alfred State broke through in the 25th minute, with Marie Alessi scoring off an assist by Kindle Burkes. The host team made it 3-2 heading into the half with a goal in the 35th minute by Andrea DeMarco, with an assist by Lyndsay Shultz. Alessi tied the game and then gave Alfred State the lead early in the second half, scoring off a pair of corner kicks in the 52nd and 60th minutes to make the score 4-3, Alfred State. Taylor Reynolds scored an unassisted goal to make it 5-3 in the 68th minute before Alessi scored her fourth goal of the game to make it 6-3 in the 75th minute.
 
Over the final 15 minutes, TC3 seemed to regain its bearings and put pressure on Alfred. McManus scored off an assist from Jaclyn Sutton (Dryden HS/Dryden) in the 82nd minute, but that was as close as the Panthers could get as the score ended 6-4.
 
TC3 hosts a pair of games this weekend. On Saturday, the Panthers open Mid-State Athletic Conference play with a 1:00 p.m. game against Cayuga Community College. On Sunday, TC3 hosts SUNY Canton at 1:00 p.m.
