 March 16, 2013

Panthers Give Up Last Six Goals in 9-7 Loss

DRYDEN, N.Y. – A strong start wasn’t enough for the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team as the Panthers lost at home 10-3 to Broome Community College Saturday. The Panthers are now 1-2 while Broome improves to 2-2.

            Things looked good early for the home team as Chad Timmons (Cortland H.S./Cortland) put the Panthers up 1-0 two minutes into the game. After Broome tied the score, the Panthers scored four straight, including three by Mike Hartnett (Cortland H.S./Cortland), to lead 5-1 early in the second quarter. Broome broke the run with a score with 11:39 left in the half, but Stephen Park (Homer H.S./Homer) made it 6-2 with his second goal of the game. Broome responded to make it 6-3 before Hartnett found the net gain to give TC3 a 7-3 lead with 5:00 left in the half. The visitors began to chip away at the lead with two scores in the closing minutes of the half to make the score 7-5 at the break.

            A scoreless third quarter left TC3 15 minutes away from a win, but used a spurt of four goals over a span of 2:20 to move in front 9-7 with 10:20 left in the game. While TC3 continued to struggle to mount an attack, the Hornets added an insurance goal with 1:18 left to make the final 10-7.

Hartnett finished with four goals, his third straight game with at least four points. Park had two goals and Timmons finished with a goal and an assist. Goalie Zach Brown (Corning East H.S./Corning) had 11 saves.

            TC3 travels to Rochester Wednesday for a 4 p.m. game with Monroe Community College.
