What is the difference between "maximum" and "most" ?
1. "The most goals scored in a match is 5."
2. "The maximum temperature recorded is 50 C".
Both "maximum" and "most" seem to have the same meaning ?

I very much doubt it, I have never heard low/high used with age and it sounds very strange. High/low really should indicate things like height, degree, intensity, i.e. "1 metre high", "high price" and "high temperature". Surely minimum/youngest and maximum/oldest are valid though:
The minimum/maximum age in which one has won the award is..
The youngest/oldest age in which one has won the award is..
Most means slightly short of or not quite accomplished

e.g most of them agrees

Whereas, maximum means the largest possible quantity

e.g maximum pressure
