DELTA — Delta made program history Tuesday night on home pitch as the Panther boys soccer program claimed the first Northwest Ohio Athletic League championship in school history with a 4-2 win over visiting Liberty Center on Tuesday.
Nolan Risner, Max York, Shayne Kruger and Carson Chiesa all scored for the undefeated Panthers (13-0-2, 5-0-1 NWOAL), which trailed 1-0 at the half before a second-half uprising. The title is the first boys soccer title for Delta since the sport became an NWOAL-sanctioned sport in the 2013 season and the second overall title after the Delta girls won the outright crown in 2014. The title marks the second straight first-time program win as Wauseon snapped a seven-year streak of either Bryan or Archbold winning the sport’s championship in 2020.
