Varsity wins big on AYSO/CASSA night

Robert Klein and Kyle Szirovecz jump for the ball.

The stadium was buzzing with up and coming AYSO/CASSA players on Wednesday, September 29, 2010. The teams and fans gathered to cheer on the boy’s varsity soccer team as they hosted Forest Hills Northern (FHN). This was an important game for both teams, with the winner tentatively assuming first place in the OK Blue conference. Even though both teams took multiple shots and played aggressively, neither team scored by the half as it remained 0-0.

During the half, the AYSO/CASSA teams in attendance were presented on the field and introduced to the supportive spectators. When the game resumed, shortly into the second half, at 36:30, Cedar lit up the scoreboard when Robert Klein booted the ball up to forward Kyle Szirovecz, who drilled it past the Huskies keeper into the upper corner of the net, putting the Red Hawks up 1-0. With only 11:01 remaining, Kyle Szirovecz sent in an amazing free kick shot and nailed the ball underneath a wall of FHN players guarding the net, giving the Red Hawks a 2-0 shutout win over the Huskies.

Earlier in the week, on Monday, September 27, the Red Hawks traveled to Coopersville to go head to head with the Broncos. After a well played game, Cedar claimed a 6-2 victory over Coopersville. Senior Jake Rickner made the first goal of the night with an assist from Robert Klein (19:36). With an assist from Mikko Jarviniemi, Kyle Szirovecz headed in goal number two (11:26). The Red Hawks returned to the field after the half and kept continual pressure on Coopersville. The Bronco keeper slide out of the net, but was unable to stop Ryan Austin, as he pushed the ball past the keeper and found the back of the net, adding another quick goal for the Red Hawks (39:11). Robert Klein earned a goal with an assist from Ryan Austin (34:00). Seconds later, Jake Rickner knocked in another goal (assist R. Klein)(33:07). The final Cedar goal was booted in by Kyle Szirovecz with 17:55 on the clock. With 15 minutes left in play, Coopersville dropped in two goals, ending the game with a 6-2 win for Cedar Springs.

By the end of the week, the Red Hawks increased their non-conference record to 12 wins and 2 losses with 8 games ending in shutouts. This also brings their OK Blue conference record to 7-1. “The guys had a great week in conference games!” commented Coach Avink. “As we enjoy where we are at right now, we also know that there is still work to be done! Great job, guys! Keep bringing it!”
