TROY — Lehman boys soccer opened its season with a 6-0 loss to Troy Christian.
Lehman goalie Ryan Goettemoeller did a workhorse job in the first half, turning away nine shots.
Troy Christian led 2-0 at halftime, before scoring four times in the second half.
“We were fine up to the 20 minute mark of the second half then we ran out of steam,” Lehman coach Tom Wiseman said. “Troy Christian is a good team. Easily the best team we’ve seen all summer. They will go far this year.”
Goettemoeller finished with 16 saves, as Lehman managed 8 hits on the opposing goalie.
“We let some younger kids in late to get some minutes,” Wiseman said. “We were just outmanned at the end of the game and the wheels fell off. Goettemoeller did what he could in the goal.”
Lehman travels to Allen East Thursday for a 7 p.m. game.

ST. PARIS — Miami East’s Dalton Taynor scored a hat trick in Monday’s season opener at Graham as the Miami East boys soccer team defeated the Falcons 5-2.
Taynor scored with an assist from Wesley Sutherly midway through the first half, then he added another on an assist from Jackson Davis that made it 2-1 at halftime. Parker Heim then set Taynor up for one last goal midway through the second half. Davis then headed in a Kaleb Elifritz throw-in to make it 4-0, and Taynor set up a goal by Heim to finish the scoring.
“We started off a little shaky and not able to produce much offensively,” Miami East coach Adam Bell said. “Luckily, a couple balls made it through their five-man back line that we were able to run on. Graham’s keeper made some excellent decisions, which made it difficult for us mentally, and they kept things tight at 2-1 at halftime.
“We were able to strike early, and from there our offense became more poised and things finally started to gel for us in the last 15 minutes. My guys showed me a lot of mental toughness tonight, and I am proud of the way they banded together for the win.”
Miami East hosts Northwestern Wednesday.
CASSTOWN – In their home opener, Miami East girls soccer team tied Graham 2-2.
Graham got on the board first with 22 minutes left until the break.
With three seconds left until half, Miami East’s Cerstin Gross tapped the ball to Hailey Weaver who sent the ball into the back of the net from 45 yards out to tie it at one.
Graham again scored first the second half, 16 minutes in.
East answered six minutes later when Danielle Mannier buried a penalty kick.
“Both goals we gave up were from mental errors,” Miami East coach Lil Carson said. “I guess it’s good to
get those out of the way early in the season. We learn from it, fix it, and move on.”
East is now 1-0-1 and will travel to Northwestern tonight. They also have tickets left for the Crew game on Saturday, August
27. Contact Coach Carson if interested.

I am really pleased with our progress so far this season. We found out today who our no 1 doubles team will be and are really close to winning our first match. When our transfer becomes eligible in two weeks and we sort out who our three singles player and two doubles team is we will be a good team 2nd half of the season.”
