Northmont Shuts out Wayne
On Thursday night at Northmont High School the Wayne Warriors looked for their second consecutive road win to start the season but were denied 2-0 by the Northmont Thunderbolts. The Northmont Thunderbolts controlled most of the first half of play but could not score until 15 minutes left in the half when a penalty kick was called on the Warriors. Noah Teague did what he does best and put the penalty kick in the back of the net for a 1-0 lead.
The second half was an entirely different game as the Warriors players came out and played much more physical and created some great chances for themselves A shot by Senior Nathan Johnson just missed tying the game as it bounced off the far post. The Warriors kept playing hard but then Northmont got a perfect pass setting up Noah Teague once again on a one on one with the Wayne keeper and he scored his 6th goal in the last 2 games giving Northmont a 2-0 lead. The Warriors had a few more chances but could not get on the board and fall to 2-2-1 on the season.
Junior Nick Riffle who suffered a concussion against Centerville and Senior Tri-captain Cameron Picard, who has yet to play a minute this year, will hopefully be back on the pitch this week to bolster the Warrior team.
Wayne has three home games this week at Heidkamp stadium playing Tuesday Sept 12th against Springboro High School, Thursday Sept. 14th against Carroll High School, and Saturday Sept. 16th they face Trotwood Madison High School.
