The Cedar Springs Red Hawks varsity football team swooped into Wayland last Friday and scooped up their second win of the season in the OK-Gold with a score of 28-12.

Wayland scored first, with 5:44 left in the first quarter, on a Kaden Dole 2-yard run up the middle. The Red Hawks blocked the extra point kick.

The Red Hawks then scored with 2:36 left in the first quarter when senior halfback Da’montae Barnett ran to the left for a 53-yard touchdown. Quarterback Jeremy Campione then passed to Barnett on the next  play to earn two extra points. The score was now 8-6 Cedar Springs.

Most of the second quarter passed with neither team hitting the scoreboard. As time was about to expire before the half, Cedar Springs was 3rd and 10 on Wayland’s 14-yard line. Campione handed the ball off to sophomore fullback Antwuan Nicholls, who ran to the left and into the endzone to score as time ran out. On the next play, Aiden Brunin passed to Barnett but it was no good. The score was now 14-6 Cedar Springs.

During the third quarter, Wayland managed to get back on the board when Justin Holtz scrambled to the right for five yards and a touchdown. His run for extra points was no good. The score was now CS 14, Wayland 12.

Cedar Springs hit the board again twice in the fourth quarter. The first time was when Alex Ream ran one yard into the endzone with 9:38 left on the clock. Campione’s pass to Josh Kriekaard was good for two more points.

The second time they scored in the fourth was with 3:25 left on the clock and Da’Montae Barnett had his second touchdown of the night on a one-yard run. Campione’s pass to Kriekaard for extra points was no good. 

Wayland didn’t score again. The final score was then 28-12 Cedar Springs.
