New Hope's defense makes big plays in victory (with complete scores)

 

Adam Minichino

 

 

The New Hope High School defense answered the call. 

 

With the Trojans clinging to a two-point lead and their offense stalled, the defense decided the time was right to take the the game over. 

 

Juan Cedano deflected a Wyatt Roberts pass that M.J. Shirley intercepted in the end zone, and Trae Collins added another interception return for a touchdown Friday night to lead New Hope to a 43-26 victory against Louisville in the season opener for both teams in Columbus. 

 

New Hope added five sacks and also capitalized on an 86-yard kick return for a touchdown by Jauquin Weatherspoon in the victory. 

 

Brady Davis also had three touchdown passes, including a tipped ball off the hands of Ryan lee into the arms of Trae Collins in the first quarter. The score came after New Hope recovered an onside kick to open the game.
