The Cedar Springs Red Hawks varsity football team traveled across the state to take on the Wildcats of Flint Northwestern last Friday and came back with 49-0 romp. The game was never in doubt as AJ Olszewski took back the opening kick off for an 85 yard touchdown. Cedar then threw a quick surprise with an onside kick that they recovered and four plays later Conner Burrows ran in for a second quick touchdown. After a 3 and out for Flint, Shane Bratt ran 15 yards for a Red Hawk touchdown, and three minutes later, Jake Fisk ran another 5 yards for our 4th TD and a 28-0 first quarter lead.

Alex Hemry’s touchdown run of 29 yards and Ike Golczynski connected with Burrows for a 6 yard touchdown pass to close out the first half with a 42-0 lead. Cedar closed out the scoring in the third quarter with a Golczynski to Hemry 15 yard TD pass. With the outcome not in doubt, and Cedar’s reserves preserving the shut out, Flint’s players expressed their frustrations physically in the second half. The Cedar Springs community should be proud of their kids as Cedar coach Brian Busen expressed.

”Our kids played with great emotion which was lacking in our first two games. It was fun to see them flying around and having fun. I was proud of the way our kids handled the situation at the end of the game. We protected each other, kept our heads and did not retaliate and really showed some great restraint,” said Busen.

Cedar opens up conference play tomorrow night at Red Hawk stadium against Coopersville. Let’s fill the house and support the boys!
