Red Hawks rally to shut out Broncos

Not all victories are created equal and Cedar’s 30-0 victory over Coopersville was one of those special kinds. Last Friday’s win was the first win over Coopersville in 31 years by the Red Hawks and it had been 49 years since Cedar has recorded two consecutive wins by shutout. The Broncos drove late in the first quarter to the Red Hawk 2-yard line but the Cedar defense stiffened and held on what would be the only real scoring chance for the Broncos. On the ensuing possession, Shane Bratt rumbled for 87 yards and the first score of the game. Jake Fisk ran 3 yards for our second score and we went to half with a 14-0 lead.

The second half was very similar to the first, a lot of really good Cedar defense and Bratt running. The Cedar defense held tough, led by leading tacklers Trevor Hemry and Tyler Baker as they withstood the offensive flurry in the 3rd quarter from the Broncos to preserve the shutout. Bratt, who had 177 yards on 9 rushes, opened the 4th quarter with a 6 yard touchdown and Hank Porter followed up closely with the closing score on a 32 yard run. A bad snap on a punt led to a safety that made the final score 30-0.

Cedar travels tomorrow to Forest Hills Northern to face the Huskies in an early season conference showdown. We had a good crowd last week. Let’s travel well as the boys have a real shot at the conference title!
