For the first time in their young high schools careers the Cedar Springs Red Hawks freshmen football players experienced defeat last Thursday, September 13, when they fell to the Dux of Zeeland West, 40-8.
The Red Hawks came out fired up and ready to go, but the Dux deceiving wing-T offense proved to be too much, as they scored on their first 5 possessions to jump out to a 40-0 lead.
Cedar Springs was bound and determined not to get skunked, as most of these freshmen boys had not given up more than 18 points in a game, for the last two years. Blake Fisher drove them down the field on a series of pass completions, finally connecting with Keronte Hale in the end zone, giving Cedar Springs its only score of the competition.
One thing is for certain, these boys will not hang their heads on one game, and are preparing to bounce back against Greenville this Thursday, and represent Cedar Springs well. They are determined to get back in the win column.
“We will put this one behind us and get ready for Greenville,” said Coach Covey. Come make the trek to Greenville and support these boys as they go for win number four this Thursday at Greenville at 4:30 p.m.
