Cedar Springs varsity soccer kicks off
With thirteen returning players and this being the second year for Coach Kyle Avink, fans can expect to see some exciting games out of this team. After numerous practices, the team felt excitement and anticipation to get the first game of the 2010 season underway.  On Monday, August 23, the Cedar Springs Red Hawks traveled to Tri-County to take on the Vikings and walked away with a 3-2 victory.

Kyle Szirovecz and Ryan Austin put in first half goals. Captain Robert Klein knocked in the third goal on a break away with 11:27 remaining in the game.

On Wednesday, August 25, the Red Hawks headed to Greenville to match up with the Yellow Jackets losing the battle with a final score of 5-2. Although Cedar Springs quickly lit up the score board with goals being credited to Kyle Szirovecz (33:03)(assist: R. Klein) and Robert Klein (30:15) (assist: Zach Hawkins), the speed of their opponent’s offense responded back with five goals of their own.

The final game of the week took place on Cedar’s home turf, when they took on the Fremont Packers on Thursday, August 26. The Red Hawks defeated the Packers 8-0. Within minutes of the whistle, after receiving a pass from Robert Klein, forward Ryan Austin used his speed to quickly run down the sideline and found the back corner of the net scoring the first goal (38:05). The second goal (19:38) came when Robert Klein caught the keeper off guard (assist: Trevor Hill). Captain Zach Hawkins angled the ball into the corner of the net for goal number three (19:15)(assist: R. Klein). Ryan Austin popped in his second of the night when he followed up on a rebound (15:27) (assist: Jake Holtrop). Kyle Szirovecz racked up the next two with assists coming from Tyler Hinton (10:16) and Zach Hawkins (4:12) respectfully. The seventh goal was booted in by newcomer and exchange student Mikko Jarviniemi (assist R. Klein from a corner kick). The final goal of the game was blasted in from a P.K. kick in the box by defender Aaron Dault (9:18). This shut out was also accomplished by the aggressive defense of Captain Ron Fisk, Alex Tackmann, and Aaron Dault and steady goal keeping by Kyle Coutchie. “We came into this first week hoping to see what we could do as a team,” said Coach Avink. “There were a lot of good things that we accomplished in our three games. I have very high expectations for this group of guys this year. They will be able to accomplish big things as long as they continue to bring it!”
