Panthers Women Go 1-1 Over Opening Weekend

Women's soccer team halftime talk

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's soccer team finished its season-opening weekend trip with a 1-1 record after dropping Sunday's game at North Country Community College. The 6-0 loss followed Saturday's 2-1 win over Clinton Community College, leaving the Panthers at .500 on the young season. North Country improves to 3-1 with the win.

After the hard-fought win on Saturday, the Panthers could not match the well-rested Saints. North Country scored the first goal in the seventh minute of play, and then added two more in a 40-second span in the 28th minute. A fourth goal in the closing minutes of the first half made it 4-0 at the break, and the home team tacked on two more in the second half to make the final 6-0.

Due to the game originally scheduled for next weekend being cancelled because Niagara County Community College did not field a team this year, the Panthers now have a long break before playing again. The next game on the schedule is Saturday, September 14 at home vs. Erie Community College.
