Varsity soccer starts conference play

The Red Hawks came out last week with mixed results, adding one win and one loss to their standings.

Forward Kyle Szirovecz (18) is a force to be reckoned with as he challenges for the ball.

On Tuesday, August 31, Cedar Springs hosted the Coopersville Broncos, which ended in a shut-out win for the Red Hawks. In the first half, forward Robert Klein nailed an in the box penalty kick (11:34). With 2:01 remaining in the half, Klein received a pass in front of the net from forward Kyle Szirovecz, leaving the Red Hawks ahead 2-0 at the half.

Both teams came out scrapping after the half. At 21:07, Klein earned a “hat trick” by landing his third goal of the night, as he headed in a corner kick from senior Jake Rickner. With 10:54 on the clock, Szirovecz darted on a break away kicking in a rocket ball into the corner of the net (assist Trevor Hill) adding the fourth goal. The final goal of the night was the result of a left-footed blast into the far side of the upper 90 by defender Aaron Dault (assist Jake Holtrop) (5:08). Final score was 5-0 Red Hawks.

On Thursday, Sept. 2, the Cedar Springs Red Hawks traveled to take on the Forest Hills Northern Huskies on a wet field. It was a high-spirited game and both teams came out strong. Cedar’s defense led by Captain Ron Fisk, along with Aaron Dault, Lee Tompkins, and Bo Cook, kept pressure on the Huskies’ offense. Keeper Kyle Coutchie had to stay on guard and was credited with eight saves for the night. Although the entire team gave a great effort, the Huskies did manage to put in two goals by the buzzer, and the Red Hawks lost 2-0.

“Overall it was a good week for the Red Hawks,” stated Coach Avink. “We had a great first win over Coopersville in our first conference game. We fought hard against Northern, but ended in a tough loss. We will continue to work hard and bring it to them at our annual AYSO/CASSA Night on Sept. 29.”
