Maumee High School
Bowling Green High School
The Panther men’s soccer team faced off against the Bowling Green Bobcats at Lake High School in the Division II Sectional Semifinals. Both teams had to battle the elements, with wind and rain making play tough on the slippery turf. Despite the wind working against Maumee in the first half, freshman Colin Wedge and senior Justin Albright challenged the Bobcats and helped keep the ball on the BG side of the field. Defenders Sam LaChapelle and Konner Byers provided solid defense throughout the match.
The only goal scored in the game was by Tyler Nayfack, whose corner kick was deflected into the Bobcat net by a Bowling Green defender. Senior Brock Sautter, junior Kyle Robinson and senior Jeremy Fradette helped maintain the Panthersâ possession of the ball and limited any scoring opportunities by the Bobcats.
Maumeeâs 1-0 victory takes them to the finals at Lake High School on Thursday at 5:00 vs. Sandusky High School.
