2009 Season in Review

Panthers Return to Prominence in ’09
Reach Skyline Semis, ECACs; Trio Named All-Skyline

Purchase, NY (Nov. 17, 2009) – After being one of the more dominant teams in conference the last few years, Purchase took a step back in 2008, missing the playoffs for the first time in a long time.

This fall would surely be different under new head coach Ken Pollard. With Pollard and top assistant Tom Frambach on the sidelines, Purchase was revitalized in 2009. The Panthers soared all the back to the Skyline Conference Tournament semifinals. They also qualified for the highly competitive Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Tournament.

The Panthers also received their share of individual honors. Defender Ashley Panepinto and rookie midfielder Abigail Katz were each named to the All-Skyline First Team, while senior defender Emilie Buse topped the All-Skyline Second Team.

Pollard’s first season at the helm was highlighted by a series of accolades and achievements for both his players and the team thanks largely to the strong contributions from top to bottom. Jessica DiFoggio, Veronica Slattery, Buse and Panepinto all enjoyed stellar seasons on the pitch. And few were more clutch than Katz, who had a breakthrough rookie campaign, scoring a team-high nine goals and 20 points.

Add a two woman rotation at goalie split between the experienced Stehphanie Janasiewicz and newcomer Shea Macagnone, and the emerging threats on offense of forward strikers Marisa Corson, Sarah Lichy and Carly Turow and no game plan was safe for the opposition in 2009.

Corson, a transfer student, finished with seven goals and a team-high five assists, earning the 100th point of her college career.

The offense improved greatly this fall, but it was the defense that carried the Panthers to their two epic duels against Bard College in the postseason. The defense was led by the uncanny combo of DiFoggio and Panepinto. Scrappy, speedy and relentless, the twosome combined for eight of the team’s 39 goals. Purchase’s defense not only prided itself on ball denial but also on getting the ball in the opposition’s goal.

The Panthers reached the league’s semis in a thrilling shootout win before falling to Bard in the Skyline Tourney. Purchase also lost to the Raptors in the ECACs after advancing to the prestigious tournament for the first time in school history.

With a young core in place, Purchase should be big players for a return trip deep into the playoffs in 2010.

2008 Season in Review

Panthers Fall One Game Short of Postseason

Purchase, NY (Nov. 3, 2008) The Purchase College women's soccer team battled injuries all season and fell just one game shy of the playoffs this fall.  

After reaching the semifinals of the Skyline Conference Tournament last season, the Panthers returned a strong squad that should have included top scorer Susan Bigler and co-captain Emilie Buse. But injuries and other factors contributed to the loss of several key returnees. The Panthers never fully recovered, finishing in seventh place (4-12-2, 3-4-2 Skyline). The top six teams advance to the playoffs.

Despite missing the postseason, the Panthers enjoyed some success on the field this fall. Jessica Noonan led the Panthers wih five goals, while senior Meghan Countryman totaled four. Scoring defenders Jessica DiFoggio and Ashley Panepinto, and midfielder Shannon Ruiz had three goals apiece for the defensive-minded Panthers.         

Panepinto, who played extremely well in her rookie campaign, paced the team in assists, registering five on the season. Countryman had three assists to aid the Panther attack, and midfielder Veronica Slattery finished with two. Other bright spots included the play of co-captains Becky Moore and Cian Duross, who anchored the midfield.

Goalkeeper Stephanie Janasiewicz enjoyed a strong season in the net. She was named Skyline Conference Player of the Week once. DiFoggio was named to the Honor Roll once and Noonan garnered two Honor Roll appearances for Player of the Week. Countryman collected an Honor Roll nod in the final week as well.  

All three of the Panthers' Skyline Conference victories were shutouts, two of them by the score of 9-0 over SUNY Maritime and Yeshiva, as well as 6-0 drumming of the College of Mount Saint Vincent.

The Panthers said goodbye to graduating seniors Siobhan Boland, Danielle Rousseau, Countryman, Moore and Duross.  All five were members of the 2006 NEAC championship team.

The young Panthers are likely to return most of their core players next season as they prepare for a return run at the conference championship.

2007 Season in Review

Incredible Season One Kick Shy of Championships

Purchase, NY – The Purchase College women’s soccer team had a season to remember this past fall.

The Panthers, who came into the Skyline Conference Tournament as the No. 4 seed, defeated Russell Sage in the first round on penalty kicks, setting the stage for a showdown against top ranked Farmingdale State.

Against the Rams, the game once again came down to a shootout – but this time, Purchase came up short, falling 3-2. The Panthers finished the season with a record of 9-8-1, including a Skyline mark of 6-2-1. The team, under the guidance of first year head coach Susan Scheer, posted shutouts in their final six contests.

A number of players were recognized for their efforts. Rookie sensation Susan Bigler (FR/Brewster, NY) paced the team with 21 goals and 44 points en route to Skyline Conference Women’s Soccer Rookie of the Year honors. Her 21 goals tied Purchase’s single season record. Bigler was also named to the All-Skyline First Team.

Co-captain Emilie Buse (SO/Loudonville, NY) was also named to the All-Skyline First Team. As impressive as her defensive play was this season, Buse can take even more pride in the fact that she started the season at another position. The former goalkeeper moved into the field early in the season when fellow co-captain Rachael Sokolowski (SR/ Utica, NY) suffered a season-ending injury.

Defensive stalwart Alice Webber (SR/New Providence, NJ) was named to the All-Skyline Second Team in her final season.

The Panthers will look to build on this season’s success in 2008, returning several underclassmen, including Bigler and goalie Stephanie Janasiewicz (FR/Kingston, NY).
