The Archbold boys soccer team hosted the Maumee Panthers (1-6-2), Saturday, Sept. 15, under the lights at Spengler Field.

The Streaks improved to 7-0 after earning a convincing 7-0 victory.

Brodie Nofziger and sophomore Matt Sevey each chipped in a pair of goals while David Bontrager added a goal and five assists.

Archbold set the tone early. Nofziger scored just 42 seconds into the match, knocking in a shot from 6 yards after a pass from Bontrager on the right.

Two minutes later, Jacob Ott hit a left-footed chip shot from 18 yards that found the net after a pass tapped from Bontrager.

Sevey gave Archbold a 3-0 lead in the 21st minute with a left-footed strike from the left at 20 yards with Bontrager serving the ball from center.

After halftime, the Panthers held off the Streaks for 22 minutes.

Bontrager flipped a pass forward to Nofziger, who went on a 30-yard breakaway with only the goalie defending, placing the ball in the left side of the goal from 8 yards.

Less than a minute later, Bontrager joined the scoring fest himself, knocking in a goal from 9 yards after Andrew Mayer launched a laser-like throw in from midfi eld to the penalty area for the assist.

Archbold went ahead 6-0 with 11 minutes remaining when Bontrager passed to Sevey for a 20-yard breakaway. Sevey finished by flipping the ball over the Panther keeper into the goal.

Sophomore Oscar Calderon wrapped up the Streaks’ scoring with 9 minutes remaining, cleaning up the rebound after a Mayer free kick deflected off the goalie.

The shutout was the fourth of the season for the Archbold defense.

Goalkeeper Emerson Radabaugh had three saves while defenders Ott, Gavin Morton, Ryan King, Seth Yoder, and Micah Bernath kept the Panther scoring chances to a minimum.

Archbold fired 15 shots on goal to Maumee’s three.
