Get ready for some football

The Cedar Springs Red Hawks and Howard City-Tri County Vikings face off Friday night at 7 p.m. in the opening game of the football season at Red Hawk Stadium.

This is the third year in a row the rivals will face each other, after not competing against each other since 1983. The Red Hawks won both games and hope to keep the streak alive this year. In 2010 they won 33-6, and in 2011 the score was 35-14.

Missing from this year’s event will be the running of the ball down the White Pine Trail from Tri County to Cedar Springs by the cross country team. “It didn’t fit in to their cross country team’s schedule this year,” explained Jen Kahler, Red Hawk girls cross country coach.

The game against Tri County is a non-conference game. Tri County is a member of the Lake 8 Activities Conference, and Cedar Springs has been assigned to a new conference designated the OK Bronze. Every few years the OK conference is realigned, based on population and geography. This new conference is made up of four former OK Blue teams, two from the OK White, and one from the OK Gold. Besides the Red Hawks, teams in the conference include West Catholic, Northview, Greenville, Forest Hills Northern, and Forest Hills Eastern.

Cedar will face long time rival Sparta on the Spartans’ home turf next Thursday evening, August 30, prior to Labor Day weekend. Check out next week’s Post for a full schedule of all the Red Hawk fall sports.
