On Friday, October 13, at 7pm, the Varsity Red Hawks of Cedar Springs faced off against the undefeated Rangers of Forest Hills Central at Red Hawk Stadium. The Red Hawks were defeated in this conference match up, with a final score of Forest Hills Central 35, Cedar Springs 20, setting a somber mood for senior night in Red Hawk Stadium.

Forest Hills Central athlete Luke Majick ran in the first touchdown of the night, with 9:25 left to play in the first quarter. Ranger Daniel Riser went on to kick a PAT (point after touchdown). The Hawks got on the board with only a little time left in the first quarter when junior Ryan Ringler made a 5-yard run into the end zone, followed by a completed two point conversion. Additional points for the Rangers in the quarter were scored by Kyle Basch and Ranger kicker Riser. The first quarter concluded with a score of Forest Hills Central 14, Cedar Springs 8.

The Red Hawks took the lead in the second quarter when Ringler made two additional completed runs into the end zone. The attempted PAT’s after these runs were incomplete. 

After returning from halftime with a standing score of Cedar Springs 20, Forest Hills Central 14, the game slowly went downhill for the Red Hawks. In the third and fourth quarters, the Red Hawks were unable to add to the scoreboard. The Rangers racked up a total of 21 points. 

Final score was FHC 35, Cedar Springs 20. This boosted FHC’s record to 6-0 in conference and 8-0 overall; and the Red Hawks’ record went to 4-1 conference and 5-3 overall. Although the Cedar Springs varsity football team was defeated by Forest Hills Central, the night was memorable, as the seniors played for what may be the very last time on their home turf. The boys walked the length of the field alongside one another as the song “The Boys of Fall” played throughout the stadium.

The next, and last regular game of the season for the Red Hawks will take place on Friday, October 20th against Ottawa Hills. This game will begin at 7 p.m. at Ottawa Hills’ home stadium. 

The Red Hawks need just one more win to advance to the playoffs.

Girls Basketball season ends with loss to Forest Hills Central


S-Basketball-girls-web

Cedar Springs girls varsity basketball ended their season with a loss in a close game in their district, and on their home court against Forest Hills Central on Monday, Feb. 24.

The girls played hard and stayed close for most of the game. Cedar Springs went into half time only trailing by 2 points. Forest Hills Central came out strong and extended their lead in the 2nd half ending on top with a final score of 45-52.

It was a team effort with all contributing.  Scoring for the Hawks were Brittany Todd, Aubree Mouthaan, Mikenzie Francis, Sam Taylor, Taylor Baker, Sayge Wight and Allison Snavley. Aly Hamiliton grabbed several rebounds and Nikki Matzke and Alysha Chaney chipped in with great defense.

Out with injuries were Mary Monterusso and Jessica Kriekaard, who gave encouragement to all. All in all it was a great effort put out by everyone and it was sad it had to end.

Overall for the season the girls were 6-14, 4-6 in the OK Bronze conference.  Through all the ups and downs the girls played tough and came up just short on several games. Having 9 seniors out of 12 on the team made it very tough for it to come to an end. Playing together for 9 years and knowing that this was the final game they would ever play on their home court at Cedar Springs High School made it even harder. Congratulations on completing the season with a great game.
