The Cedar Springs Girls Basketball team picked up a pair of league road victories last week defeating Northview 34-15 on Tuesday and Lowell 49-40 on Friday.  

In both games the Red Hawks were able to get off to a fast start. Arianna Rau scored 6 points and Avery Sparling scored 5 points as Cedar jumped out to an 11-0 first quarter lead against Northview. Pressure defense forced multiple Northview turnovers and led to easy baskets for the team.  

Rau continued her strong performance inside in the second quarter scoring a pair of baskets. Rosie Pigorsh scored 4 points in the second as the ladies took a 21-3 lead into halftime.  

The Red Hawks maintained their lead throughout the low scoring second half.  Sparling and Pigorsh scored 4 points apiece and Maggie Prins chipped in 3 points in the half for the Red Hawks.  

Rau led all scorers with 12 points, while Sparling scored 9 points and hauled in 6 rebounds on the night. Pigorsh finished with 8 points.

On Friday, the Red Hawks traveled to Lowell to take on the Red Arrows. Another quick start saw Cedar jump to a 14-8 lead after the first quarter. Five points by Kaelyn Colclasure and 4 points by Kyla Andres led the team in the opening 8 minutes.  

The second quarter was much of the same as Cedar outscored Lowell 13-4 to take a 27-12 lead into halftime. Colclasure scored nailed a pair of three pointers and knocked down 4 free throws to score 10 points in the quarter (15 points in the first half).  

Lowell responded early in the third quarter scoring the first 7 points of the quarter to cut into the Red Hawk lead. Cedar led 33-25 at the end of three quarters.  

The fourth quarter saw a back and forth battle as every time Lowell tried to close the gap further Cedar Springs responded. Prins scored a pair of baskets, one a key offensive rebound put-back, and Jenna Powell nailed a three in the quarter.  

Colclasure led all scorers with 18 points followed by Rau with 8.  Rau hauled down all 12 of her game high rebound total in the second half.  Prins scored 7 points and had 8 rebounds on the evening.

The team faced off against Greenville Tuesday, and you can see those results in next week’s paper.

This Friday, February 28, they play at Home vs. Ottawa Hills, starting at 5:30 p.m. It will be senior night between the boys and girls games, and the benefit spaghetti dinner for boys basketball player Ryan Smith. 

On Monday, March 2, the team will play in the district game at Forest Hills  Northern at 6:00 p.m.
