The Cedar Springs freshmen boys got their season off to a great start last week, when they took on Chippewa Hills and beat them on their home turf.
The tone was set early with Keenan Gosselin returning the opening kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown. After showing a strong defensive presence, especially for game one of their high school careers, Cedar got the ball back, and pounded the ball down the field for another score. Going into half time, the game was still within reach for either team, but in the second half Cedar’s defense proved to be too much for Chippewa Hills. The Red Hawks worked on their ground game and clock management, and moved the ball up and down the field. The Red Hawks took home the win, 42-22.
Chippewa Hills filled a hole in the Red Hawks schedule, since Tri County didn’t have a freshmen team, and Coach Kirk Covey was glad to get the boys out on the field. “With two-a-days behind us, it was refreshing for everyone to get the season started, and start playing against other teams, besides ourselves.”
After a short week of practice, the Freshmen hosted Sparta Wednesday night at at Red Hawk Stadium. Check out next week’s Post for details of the game.

With room to improve, watch out—this Freshmen group will only continue to improve and become a force to reckon with week after week!
