The Cedar Springs JV football team lost to a tough Forest Hills Northern team Thursday night, October 18, 34-0. Northern got on the board early, scoring after only a few offensive plays. The Red Hawks had some success moving the ball, but were not able to score. The Huskies again drove down the field and scored, making it 14-0 late in the first quarter. Cedar then pushed the ball down field and were faced with a 4th and 10 from the Husky 15 yard line but came up short on a hook and ladder pass play.
On the next possession Cedar nearly intercepted the Huskies, but the ball bounced off of the Red Hawk player and in to the hands of the Northern receiver. The Huskies were pushed the ball down field and score again, making it 20-0 at the half.
The Red Hawks came out fighting in the second half but struggled to get much offense going. The Huskies were able to tack on two more scores in the 2nd half to cap off their undefeated season.
“That was a very talented FHN team,” said Coach Bowers. “They were able to go undefeated this season and that is very tough at any level of football. I sure wish we could have played them early in the year, when we were at full strength. I don’t think they would have ended up 9-0 if we would have seen them then. Thanks to all of the JV players
for the hard work this year and their ability to overcome adversity.”
