JV Red Hawk football takes second win


S-Football-JVBy Kendra Coons

The Cedar Springs JV football team earned their second win of the season on Thursday, September 5, against their rival, the Sparta Spartans at Spartan stadium.

At halftime the score was 22-8 in favor of the Red Hawks. The Hawks fought hard throughout the whole game. The Hawk’s offense was strong, with Keenan Gosselin running a 98-yard touchdown. Anthony Topolski returned an onside kick for a touchdown and Collin Alvesteffer rushed for a pair of touchdowns. The defense was also on point with Lane Gott having a big defensive interception.

“The defense had another all-around great game holding Sparta to only 14 points,” commented Coach Streeter.

The final score of the game against Sparta was 44-14. After two games of the season the JV team is now 2-0.

“Our average right now is giving up 7 points and averaging 46 points through the first two games,” says Streeter. “We still have room to improve, but the team is looking forward to our conference games.”

The JV team was scheduled to travel to Holland Christian on Wednesday, September 11, because Wayland does not have a JV team. Watch for details in next week’s Post!

JV team small in numbers, big in talent


With just 15 players dressed for the first 3 games, and 14 for the 4th, the JV Redhawks were, nevertheless, an unstoppable force.  They put an an average of more than 40 points on the board for each game, while giving up just 12 points total in the first 4 games.
Assistant coach Tyson Hoffman said, “I think the biggest challenge for the players has been that they need to know multiple positions on both offense and defense. Kaden Myers has played 6 different positions for us this season and he is a freshmen. If one player gets hurt its not as easy as just putting someone else in that spot sometimes we have to move 3-4 guys just to make it work.”
Whatever they’re doing, it seems to be working as they’ve rolled over Tri County, Flint Northwestern, Forest Hills Eastern, and most recently Coopersville.  The Red Hawks will head to Forest Hills Northern this Thursday to face the Huskies in game 5 of what has been, so far, an incredible season.
