Maumee High School
Maumee’s varsity men’s soccer team hosted the Start Spartans at Kazmaier Stadium Thursday as the Panthers celebrated Senior Night. With less than a minute into the match, Start had the opportunity to take an early lead with a penalty kick but the shot went wide and hit the goalpost. Maumee then took advantage when midfielder Justin Albright crossed to forward Braden Wagener, who scored on a header. Maumee controlled the ball and the field for most of the evening, only allowing five shots on goal by the Spartans during the entire game.
The Panthers continued to dominate the second half, with midfielder Brock Sautter shooting a âbangerâ outside the box to put Maumee up 2-0. The Panthers added one more goal when forward Bryan Pouter was fouled in the box, and took the penalty kick himself to extend the Panther lead to 3-0. Maumee racked up an impressive 32 shots on goal for the game, with leading shooters Tyler Nayfack, Albright, Sautter, Pouter and Kyle Robinson.
This year’s Maumee Panther seniors include Justin Albright, Connor Evans, Nate Gauthier, Cole Imm, Jeremy Fradette, Lucas Krist, Bryan Pouter, and Brock Sautter.
