Panthers Win for Fifth Time in Last Seven Games
DRYDEN, N.Y. – The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team continued its strong second-half of the season with a convincing 64-47 home win over Broome Community College Saturday. The Panthers have now won five of the last seven games to move into a tie for third place in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. TC3’s record is now 5-4 in conference and 7-12 overall. Broome falls to 1-8 in the MSAC and 2-19 overall.
After a back-and-forth opening few minutes, a layup by Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) started TC3 on a run that featured six-straight points from Becca Holton Tomasdottir (Cape Fear Academy (N.C.)/Reykjavik, Iceland) and ended with the Panthers ahead 20-14. The lead continued to grow, peaking at 12 when Adrienne Murray (Moravia H.S./Moravia) hit a jumper in the closing seconds of the half to make the score 37-25. A Broome three-pointer at the buzzer made the score 37-28 at the half, but the Panthers put the game away early in the second half with a 15-4 run that made the score 59-37. TC3 continued on to the comfortable win, thanks in large part to a decided advantage in shooting percentage, making 44.1% compared to Broome’s 26.7%.
By the final horn, all 11 TC3 players had recorded at least one rebound, and eight players scored at least two points each. Holton Tomasdottir had another big game, coming up just short of a double-double by scoring 20 points and handing out nine assists Ordway did reach a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds to go with four blocks, three assists, and two steals. Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) scored 16 points and Chelsi Rosa (Bainebridge-Guilford H.S./Bainbridge) collected seven boards while scoring four points.
