Godwin eyes big stretch run

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Mills Godwin knows that every team in the Colonial District is an underdog to Hermitage, but with four games to go in their season, the Eagles are hoping to put themselves in a position to give the Panthers a run for their money.

Godwin is currently 3-1 in district play and in third place behind Hermitage and Deep Run, both unbeaten in the Colonial.  The Eagles are 4-2 overall, falling in a heart-breaker to Meadowbrook and to Deep Run as well, after holding leads in both contests. 

Third year head coach John Phillips and his coaching staff believe that the Eagles are only a couple plays away from being undefeated.  The loss to the Monarchs came on a heave by Gerard Johnson in the late stages of the contest, and the Eagles held a 21-7 lead against the Wildcats before giving up that lead.

Mills Godwin hosts J.R. Tucker on Friday, before heading to Hermitage next week.
