Playoff Win for TC3 Women's Soccer
 October 21, 2013

Panthers Beat North Country 3-1 to Advance to Semifinals

DRYDEN, N.Y. – The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team is headed to the NJCAA Region III-B semifinals after posting a 3-1 win over North Country Community College Saturday. The #3-seed Panthers will now take on #2-SUNY Delhi Tuesday at 3 p.m. in Delhi.

The quarterfinal game against North Country started with a frustrating first half for the Panthers. Playing at home against the #6-seed Saints, TC3 came painstakingly close on several chances in the opening 45 minutes, but the combination of strong play by the North Country keeper and misfires left it scoreless at the half.

The attack continued in the second half until finally breaking through with 38 minutes left on the clock. Hannah Wildenstein (Dryden H.S./Freeville) played a nice cross to the front of the goal, where Megan Reynolds (Chazy H.S./Chazy) finished the play to make it 1-0. The celebration was very short-lived, as North Country took the next possession down and scored just 18 seconds later to tie the game at 1-1. More good chances were thwarted by the North Country keeper before Shelby Goodrich (Minisink Valley H.S./Otisville) fed Erika Faberzak (Cortland H.S./Cortland) at the top of the box for a clear shot past the keeper to return the lead to the Panthers with 28:55 on the clock. TC3 keeper Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor) made a great save minutes later to preserve the lead before a Faberzak corner kick was headed in by Mercedes Kendall (Union-Endicott H.S./Endicott) to make it 3-1 with 22:36 left. Kern and the defense, led by Sara Sinnigen (Dryden H.S/Dryden) and Lindsey Hack (Chazy H.S./Chazy), kept the slate clean the rest of the way to close out the win.

TC3 now takes on SUNY Delhi for the right to play for the Region III-B championship. The championship game will be held Saturday, October 26 at TC3.
