New Hope's Godfrey hopes to build on home run

Posted 5/19/2015 in High School Sports

Lee Boyd is fond of saying the New Hope High School baseball team always has to have one guy step up. Will Godfrey took that notion to heart last week in one of the Trojans' biggest moments of the season. Locked in a scoreless tie with Oxford in the bottom of the seventh inning in Game 2 of their Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A North State title series, Godfrey turned on a fastball middle in and smacked it over the left-field fence to lift New Hope to a 1-0 walk-off victory. The win helped New Hope force a winner-take-all Game 3 in Oxford that originally was scheduled for Friday, but rain forced it to be delayed until Saturday. In Game 3, Oxford earned a 10-3 victory that ended New Hope's season and its quest for a third-straight Class 5A championship.
