On the crisp night of Tuesday, September 20, Red Hawk stadium was buzzing with the sound of excited AYSO/CASSA players and their parents as they came to cheer on the Cedar Springs boys varsity soccer team, who was playing against the Sparta Spartans. The Spartans took an early 1-0 lead, but the Red Hawks quickly tied it up when Robert Klein connected with a cross from Kyle Szirovecz, heading the ball in over the keeper’s gloves (30:35). Mitch Hanmer’s well placed throw in to Klein, resulted in the second goal, as Klein kicked the ball over to Szirovecz, who blasted the ball into the back of the net (16:03). The Red Hawks finalized their 3-1 win, when forward Kyle Szirovecz accepted the ball up the field from defender Dontae Ensley, allowing Szirovecz to maneuver through several defenders and shot the ball into the lower corner of the net (34:08).
Following the game, Coach Avink and the team wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported us during our AYSO/CASSA night. “It was a huge success. The guys had some great wins this week and we are excited to continue to move forward in the up coming games!” he said.

On Thursday, September 22, the Red Hawks traveled north to challenge the Big Rapids Cardinals. The Red Hawks took an early command of the game when Robert Klein connected with a pass from Kyle Szirovecz and sent the ball in to the back of the net (16:32). Red Hawk fans cheered when Szirovecz broke away from the Cardinal defense and drilled the ball past the keeper, increasing Cedar’s lead 2-1 (6:40). Szirovecz scored again 11 seconds into the second half, from a perfect cross sent to the net by Klein (39:49). Minutes later, Szirovecz scored a hat trick when he knocked in his third goal of the evening to bring the Red Hawks to a comfortable lead of 4-0 (29:42). With 37 seconds left on the clock, defender Dontae Ensley, tiptoed his way up field during a Cedar Springs corner kick, he got his foot on the ball and drilled it past the keeper giving the Red Hawks a 5-0 shut out victory over the Cardinals.
