Under the Friday night lights of September 8, the Red Hawk varsity football team took on the Greenville Yellow Jackets in their third game of the season and brought in a win on their own turf 48-7.

After both the Cedar Springs freshman and junior varsity football teams defeated the Jackets on Thursday evening, the varsity boys were determined to continue the winning streak.

Senior fullback John Jacob Todd scored the first touchdown of the night with 8:30 to play in the first quarter. Todd ran up the middle for 20 yards and completed his run into the end zone, starting the game off on a good foot.

Junior halfback Ryan Ringler finished off the play with a two-point conversion, bringing the score to Cedar Springs 8, Greenville 0.

Todd scored three additional touchdowns during the game, and a two-point conversion in the second quarter, after securing a pass thrown by senior quarterback Nicholas Campione.

Senior halfback Darius Barnett, whose second touchdown consisted of a short pass by Campione and a 53-yard run, put up additional points for the Red Hawks.

Campione assisted one touchdown and two two-point conversions, and made key passes on multiple occasions to contribute to the team’s win.

In the third quarter, shortly after returning from halftime, Greenville junior Ryan Burden ran a reverse left and scored his team’s only touchdown of the night. The touchdown was followed by a PAT (point after touchdown) kicked by Greenville player Bryce Priebe.

The first conference game of the season for the Red Hawks concluded with a winning score of Cedar Springs 48, Greenville 7.

To see the results of the upcoming game, support the Cedar Springs varsity football team at the Northview Wildcat’s stadium on Friday, September 15. Game time is 7 p.m.

The Cedar Springs Varsity football team brought home another win last Friday, October 9, against the Greenville Yellow Jackets. Both the Red Hawks’ defensive and offensive lines proved to be a vigorous force that Greenville couldn’t compete with. Cedar Springs aggressively claimed victory over Greenville, with a final score of 51-22.

The first touchdown of the game was scored by Senior Lane Gott in the first quarter. Unfortunately, the two-point conversion was no good. The scoreboard remained at 6-0 until the second quarter.

In the following quarter, the Red Hawks made offensive leaps and bounds. Senior Anthony Topolski  earned a touchdown for Cedar Springs early in the second quarter. The two-point was made by senior Cameron Umphrey. After this offensive gain, junior Dustin Shaw pinned the Yellow Jackets on the 13-yard line on his kickoff, after a violation was committed against Umphrey. This aggressive stoppage by defensive players junior Jacob Hooker and senior Kyle Sphar later allowed senior Blake Fisher to make a run for a pick six for another touchdown. Umphrey successfully made the two-point. Senior Taylor VanDyke also earned a touchdown, making the score 28-0 in the first half.

Topolski scored another touchdown for the Red Hawks in the third quarter. Senior Isaiah MacDonald made the two-point conversion. After this play, the Yellow Jackets managed to break through the defensive line for a touchdown to make the score 36-6. However, Hooker made another touchdown, and this time, the Red Hawks decided to let Shaw kick the extra point.

In the final quarter, junior Collin Alvesteffer scored a touchdown, and VanDyke converted the two-point. Ending the quarter, Fisher intercepted another Yellow Jacket pass, stopping their offensive line.

The Red Hawks are now 3-0 in conference and 5-2 overall. They are tied with Forest Hills Eastern (3-0 conference, 7-0 overall) for first place in the OK-Bronze, and they take them on this Friday at Forest Hills Eastern High School, for a share of the title.
