Disappointing Loss for TC3 Lacrosse
 March 28, 2013

DRYDEN, N.Y. – The Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse suffered a disappointing loss at home Wednesday, giving up the final four goals of the game to fall to Jefferson Community College 17-16. The loss drops TC3 to 1-4 overall and 0-1 in East Division play. Jefferson is now 1-4 overall and 1-0 in the East Division.

The visiting Cannoneers jumped out early, scoring the first four goals before TC3’s Mike Hartnett (Cortland H.S./Cortland) found the net to put the home team on the board with 3:40 left in the quarter. After a Jefferson score, Stephen Park (Homer H.S./Homer) put one in just before the horn sounded, making it 5-2 after the first.

The Panthers continued to rally in the second, netting three straight to tie it at 5-5 on Chad Timmons’ (Cortland H.S./Cortland) second goal of the game. The teams traded a pair of goals before Jefferson scored with 6.4 second left to take an 8-7 lead into the half.

The third quarter saw TC3 come out on fire, scoring six times in the first ten minutes to take a 13-8 lead. Jefferson used three straight to pull within two, but Tyler West (Cortland H.S./Cortland) found the net with 32.4 seconds left in the quarter to make it 14-11 heading into the final quarter.

A score by Lon Palmer (Oneida H.S./Oneida) ten seconds into the fourth made it 15-11, but Jefferson answered with two scores to pull within two at 15-13. The lead grew to 16-13 with 4:20 left on a score by Hartnett, but the visitors ended the game the way they started – scoring four straight goals, with the final score giving Jefferson a 17-16 lead with 1:32 left. TC3 won the ensuing faceoff, and after a timeout, a Hartnett shot went off the post and another shot sailed wide before Jefferson took over. The Panthers forced a turnover, but was unable to get another shot at tying the game.

Hartnett again led TC3 with six points on four goals and two assists. Park and Timmons each had five points, with Park netting four goals and an assists and Timmons tallying two goals and three assists. West finished with three goals and an assist and Austin Recor (Homer H.S./Homer) had a goal and two helpers. Palmer ended the game with two goals.
