The Creative Technologies Academy boys varsity soccer team took first place in the Great Lakes 6 (GL6) regular season and first place in the conference tournament, which took place on Sat., Oct. 17 at Algoma Christian School.

“Our teamwork continues to grow each year as the boys begin to trust one another and learn the game. We have players that are good on defense and we have players who are more geared for offense,” shared Coach Mark Winters. “Learning to not give up and push through when it gets tough shows positive growth and experience for these young men.”

CTA is a part of the GL6 Conference (Great Lakes 6), that consists of the following teams: (Runner-up) Algoma Christian, Barry County Christian, Libertas Christian, Sacred Heart Academy, West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science, and West Michigan Lutheran.

“It definitely has been a challenging year with the COVID-19 pandemic, cancelled games, and sourcing facilities for games,” expressed Athletic Director Justin Harding. “We really want to thank Algoma Christian for hosting the League Tournament and being flexible with the schedule.” 

The CTA boys soccer team is on season 3 and looks forward to growing together as a team and learning new skills each year.

Varsity soccer opens with double win

Kyle Szirovecz challenges Tri-County for the ball.

The reigning 2010 Cedar Springs varsity soccer Conference Champs opened their 2011 season with two non-conference victories over Tri-County and Fremont. On Tuesday, August 23, excitement filled the air in the Red Hawk stadium as the boys varsity soccer team kicked off their opening game against Tri-County, which resulted in a 5-1 Cedar Springs victory. The Vikings opened the scoring, but the Red Hawks answered back with the next five goals. Goals were scored by junior forward Kyle Szirovecz, with an assist from junior Trevor Rose. Junior defender Aaron Dault ran up the side line and knocked in the second goal. Junior  midfielder Robert Klein scored the 3rd and 4th goals, with one assist from Kyle Szirovecz. And the final goal was pounded in by junior defender Dontae Ensley, with an assist from Trevor Rose.

Closing out the week, on Friday, August 26, the Red Hawks traveled to Fremont to challenge the Packers. Fremont scored the first goal, but Kyle Szirovecz lit up the score board for Cedar with 14:40 remaining in the first half when he pounced on a Fremont goal kick and quickly shot the ball right back into the far side of the net. Coming out of the half, Cedar responded to a one goal deficit, with the clock down only by two minutes (38:02), when Kyle Szirovecz blasted his second goal into the upper 90, tying up the game. Kudos to freshman Jon Shaw for kicking in the winning goal with 26:20 remaining, when he received a pass from Kyle Szirovecz out in front of the net, whizzing the ball just past the keeper’s grasp. The final score ended with the Red Hawks 3, Packers 2.

Reflecting on this weeks games, coach Kyle Avink stated, “The guys have worked really hard the past couple of weeks and it really paid off as we entered into our first week of game play. This team has a lot of talent; I’m excited about what  this season has in store,” he said.

Come out and cheer them on during this soccer season.
