It was a busy but successful week last week for the Cedar Springs boys varsity soccer team as they claimed victory over 3 opposing teams.

Two out of the three games ended with no score from those opponents, which indicates the strong, quick efforts of the Cedar’s defensive line consisting of Ron Fisk, Aaron Dault, Lee Tompkins, and Bo Cook, along with keeper David Remirez.

The Red Hawks won 5-0 over Kenowa Hills as they played at home on 9-20-10. In the first half, Robert Klein quickly knocked in the first goal at 37:59. Klein followed up with a second goal (17:12) with an assist from A. Dault. Cedar continued to play well in the second half. At 23:42, defender Aaron Dault found the back of the net for the third goal. Jake Rickner assisted the last two goals when he landed a well-placed corner kick over to Josh Champion, who nailed it past the keeper (18:37). With only a minute ticking off (17:31), Rickner connected with Kyle Szirovecz who was positioned in front of the net and finished off the ball.

On Wednesday, September 22, the Hawks were charged up and ready to take on their neighboring rival Sparta. Both teams played aggressively, challenging each other throughout the entire game. At the final buzzer, the Red Hawks claimed a 2-1 victory. The Red Hawk fans cheered when Robert Klein blasted the ball past the Sparta keeper giving the Hawks the lead (18:23). With seconds remaining in the first half, Sparta tied up the game. Both teams battled through the second half, but with only 2:28 minutes left in the game, forward Kyle Szirovecz scored the winning goal when he received an outstanding 40-yard lofting pass up from defender Ron Fisk and poked the ball past the keeper, who had charged out of the box. It was an exciting win for the team.

On Thursday, September 23, Cedar traveled to Lakeview and finished the week with a 7-0 shutout over the Wildcats. Trevor Hill headed in the first two goals of the match up with assists from R. Austin (38:31) and R. Klein (26:25) respectively. Ryan Austin pushed one past the charging keeper with 12:37 on the clock adding another goal. Before the half, R. Klein scored when he blocked a Wildcat kick, got control of the ball, juked the ball past the keeper and pushed the ball into the net (4:00). The Red Hawks dominated the control the ball as they added three more goals in the second half. Josh Champion scored off a throw in from Zach Hawkins (29:50). Keeping the pressure on, Jake Holtrop booted in goal number six (assist R. Fisk)at 10:29. The final goal was credited to defender Ron Fisk, as he knocked the ball past the keeper (assist Jake Rickner) at 9:20.

Reflecting over the week, Coach Avink commented, “The guys are really coming together this season. I have seen great strides in how we are playing soccer and becoming a team! It’s exciting to be a part of and I look forward to what is ahead for this team.”
