Prep boys: Cathedral improves, loses close

NATCHEZ — The Cathedral Green Wave played better on Tuesday night against the Enterprise Lincoln Yellow Jackets than it did in a season-opening loss to Monterey just 24 hours earlier.

Cathedral held Enterprise to just four points in gaining the lead after one quarter of play, but the Green Wave couldn’t keep the momentum going and the Yellow Jackets ended up with a 66-57 overtime win.

“We were worn down. We just couldn’t keep up with the pace in overtime,” Green Wave head coach Peter Arnold said. “By far, it was so much better than last night. A huge improvement. We battled as hard as we could. But in the end, it wasn’t enough.”

The Green Wave took a 10-4 lead at the end of the first quarter, but Enterprise started its comeback by outscoring Cathedral 17-14 in the second quarter to trail by just three points, 24-21, at halftime. The Yellow Jackets then outscored the Green Wave 18-15 in the third quarter to tie the game at 39-39.

Enterprise led Cathedral 53-52 before D.J. Batteste made a free throw with 19 seconds left to make it a tie ball game once again and send the game into overtime. That’s when the Yellow Jackets took over as they outscored the Green Wave 13-4.

“We missed so many lay-ups and close range shots. Our only senior, Sam Fury, turned his ankle in the third quarter and he couldn’t come back. Rodney Hall fouled out near the end of regulation,” Arnold said.

Ethan Newman led Enterprise with a game-high 26 points and Jarrod Johnson chipped in with 15 points. Cathedral was led by Jarrell Johnson with 22 points and Alex Weadock added 14 points.

The Green Wave (0-2) hosts Loyd Star Friday night.

Brookhaven Academy 48,

ACCS 46

CLINTON, La. — Zac Smith and Josh Wiggins scored 14 points each as the Brookhaven Academy Cougars rallied to defeat the Adams County Christian School Rebels Tuesday night at the Silliman Tournament.

ACCS led Brookhaven Academy 28-23 at halftime before the Cougars outscored the Rebels 15-8 in the third quarter for a 38-36 lead. Both teams scored 10 points in the fourth quarter.

The Rebels (0-1) were led by Trey Fleming with a game-high 17 points and Tyler Stockstill with 11 points. They will next take on tournament host Silliman Thursday at 7:45 p.m.

Piney Woods 63,

Jefferson County 45

FAYETTE — Dwight Coleby finished with a game-high 24 points and Prince Cooper scored 15 points as the Piney Woods Tornadoes rolled to an 18-point win over the Jefferson County Tigers Tuesday night.

Piney Woods was only up 13-10 on Jefferson County at the end of the first quarter before the Tornadoes outscored the Tigers 20-9 in the second quarter. Jefferson County tried to get back in the game in the third quarter, but Piney Woods responded with a 20-10 fourth quarter.

Jefferson County was led by Jamel Anderson with 13 points and Ryale Brown had 11 points. The Tigers (1-2) play host to Port Gibson Friday.
