TC3 stickers come up short

DELHI — Trailing 7-3 at the half, the Tompkins Cortland Community College lacrosse team forged a tremendous comeback to tie the game before running out of steam and losing at SUNY Delhi 12-7 Thursday.
The game marked the third straight strong effort for the Panthers, who fall to 1-4 on the season. Delhi improves to 1-3.
The home team jumped out to a 5-2 lead after the first quarter and stretched it to 7-3 at the half. TC3 responded by scoring four straight goals and keeping Delhi off the board in the third quarter. Unfortunately for the Panthers, the rally ran out of steam as Delhi scored the final five goals of the game to make the final 12-7.
Robert Earnshaw had another big day offensively, scoring five goals for the Panthers. Dylan Chilson had a goal and two assists and James Dowdall from Dryden scored the other TC3 goal. Dryden’s Austin O’Brien, Anthony Cecere, and Brett Gifford each added an assist. Goalie Cory Spisak had a great game, making several spectacular stops among his 15 saves.
TC3 travels to Boston this weekend for a Saturday game against Dean College.
