Cedar Springs Varsity soccer shuts out Coopersville

On the rainy night of Tuesday, September 27, the Cedar Springs Red Hawks matched skills against the Coopersville Broncos. The Red Hawks came ready to play as a team. They sent the Broncos home 20 minutes early, as they mercied the Broncos, closing out the game with an 8-0 shut-out win. Cedar Springs lit up the score board early when Robert Klein scored from a pass from Mitch Hanmer (38:21). Robert Klein put in two more goals during the game with assists from Aaron Dault and Bryan Taylor.  Josh Champion was also able to capitalize on a goalie deflections from a goal attempt by Klein adding an additional goal. Kyle Szirovecz was on fire. He was credited with four goals for the night, with assists coming from teammates Jon Shaw, Robert Klein and Dontae Ensley. His four goals allowed him to break the “top scorer” school record in boys soccer. Junior Kyle Szirovecz has 55 goals up to this point in his high school career. Congratulations on his accomplishment and keep racking up the goals Kyle!
Rain continued to be an issue for soccer the week, when on Thursday, September 29, the Red Hawks traveled to Forest Hills Northern in OK Blue Conference play. Unfortunately, eight minutes into the play, thunderstorms rolled into the area, forcing officials to reschedule until the following day. The Red Hawks stepped onto the FHN field once again on Friday afternoon anticipating a tough, physical battle against the Huskies. The Huskies put constant pressure on the Red Hawk defensive line of Dontae Ensley, Lee Tompkins, Trevor Rose, Josh Champion, and Bryan Taylor. Despite many incredible saves by goalkeeper, Kyle Coutchie, FHN was able to put three goals in the net by the end of the first half and two additional goals by the end of the buzzer, closing out the game with a 5-0 loss for the Red Hawks. Even though we came up short, our skills on the field only continue to improve as our team continues to pull together and work as a team.
Coach Avink remarked, “We have seen all kinds of facets of play this week and we will continue to find out what works best for us!” Come cheer on our soccer teams as they take on Comstock Park and Belding next week.

On the crisp night of Tuesday, September 20, Red Hawk stadium was buzzing with the sound of excited AYSO/CASSA players and their parents as they came to cheer on the Cedar Springs boys varsity soccer team, who was playing against the Sparta Spartans. The Spartans took an early 1-0 lead, but the Red Hawks quickly tied it up when Robert Klein connected with a cross from Kyle Szirovecz, heading the ball in over the keeper’s gloves (30:35). Mitch Hanmer’s well placed throw in to Klein, resulted in the second goal, as Klein kicked the ball over to Szirovecz, who blasted the ball into the back of the net (16:03). The Red Hawks finalized their 3-1 win, when forward Kyle Szirovecz accepted the ball up the field from defender Dontae Ensley, allowing Szirovecz to maneuver through several defenders and shot the ball into the lower corner of the net (34:08).
Following the game, Coach Avink and the team wanted to thank everyone that came out and supported us during our AYSO/CASSA night. “It was a huge success. The guys had some great wins this week and we are excited to continue to move forward in the up coming games!” he said.
