Senior soccer players honored at home game

Senior soccer players honored at home game

The Cedar Springs Varsity soccer team played their last two home games last week, racking up two more wins in the process. The Red Hawks battled against the Comstock Park Panthers on Monday, October 6, resulting in a 5-1 win for Cedar. The defensive teamwork of Ron Fisk, Aaron Dault, Bo Cook and Lee Tompkins, along with returning keeper Kyle Coutchie, didn’t give the Panthers too many opportunities at the net. Scoring for the Red Hawks started at 27:37 when Zach Hawkins followed up on a ball deflected by teammate Mikko Jarviniemi. Robert Klein added another goal when he nailed the ball into the upper corner of the net (assist Kyle Szirovecz at 11:23).

In the second half, Kyle Szirovecz capitalized on a free kick just outside the box when he blasted the ball past a protective wall of defenders and the hands of the Panther keeper (16:22). Mikko Jarviniemi knocked in the final two goals of the night. The first goal he calmly headed into the net (11:44) and the second goal came at 8:52 with an assist from Kyle Szirovecz.

The Red Hawks played again the following night at the stadium on Thursday, Oct. 7 when they hosted Belding. It was a special night, as the parents of the senior Red Hawk players escorted their sons onto the field prior to the game. Parent Tim Hinton, who formerly coached many of these seniors, gave personal reflective comments about each of the senior players relative to their talents and attributes. This group of talented seniors consists of Ron Fisk #2, Bo Cook #4, Tyler Hinton #5, Zach Hawkins #8, Jake Rickner #9, Jake Holtrop #12, Alex Tackmann #15, Ryan Austin #19, Mikko Jarviniemi #3, and David Remirez #1. The fans all wish this amazing group of guys well in their future endeavors.

The Red Hawks scored 2 goals in the first half on their way to a 5-0 shutout victory. First half goals were scored by Kyle Coutchie (36:03) and Bo Cook (assist R. Klein at 8:34). Josh Champion opened the scoring in the second half with an unassisted goal at 21:19. Mikko Jarviniemi guided a deflected ball into the net (6:26). Zach Hawkins closed out the scoring as he carried the ball down the sideline, maneuvered around the Belding defense to the front of the net and sent the ball past the keeper.

Coach Avink proudly commented, “The week ended great with two good wins, staying undefeated at home and sending our seniors out on a great note on Senior Night!!”
