Vikings to host Red Hawks in season opener
The Cedar Springs Red Hawks and the Howard City Tri County Vikings will kick off the 2013 high school football season tonight (Thursday) in a neighboring school rivalry that was renewed four years ago. Prior to that, they had not played each other since 1983.
To celebrate the game, the boys and girls cross country teams from both schools will run the ball from Cedar Springs to Tri County via the White Pine Trail. They will leave Red Hawk Stadium about 4:45 p.m.
The game against Tri County is a non-conference game. Tri County is a member of the Lake 8 Activities Conference, and this is Cedar Springs’ second year in the new OK Bronze Conference.
The Red Hawks have won against Tri County three straight years. Will they do it again this year? Or will Tri County surprise them? Head on out to the game tonight and find out! Game time is 7 p.m. at Tri County.
Next week, the Red Hawks host another longtime rival, the Sparta Spartans, on Friday, September 6, at Red Hawk Stadium at 7 p.m.
