WOODVILLE — Thomas Garrity accounted for all four of Cathedral High School’s touchdowns as the Green Wave shut out Wilkinson County Christian Academy 28-0 in the WCCA jamboree Friday night.

“I was really pleased,” Cathedral head coach Ron Rushing said after the exhibition game. “I thought Thomas threw well and made some good decisions. We didn’t do a lot offensively, but I was pleased with the way we executed. Our offensive line did a good job blocking, and our defensive line played outstanding.”

The jamboree was divided into two 12-minute halves, and Cathedral scored its first touchdown in the first half when Garrity connected with Jackson Carpenter on a 2-yard touchdown pass.

Will Sandel scored the Green Wave’s next touchdown in the first half on a 23-yard touchdown reception by Will Sandel from Garrity, taking a 14-0 lead into intermission.

In the second half, Jacob Jenkins caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Garrity, and the Green Wave scored their final touchdown when Garrity carried it in from 7 yards out.

“He was throwing the ball well, and his decisions were good,” Rushing said. “We put a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks in our system, and they have to make a lot of reads and split-second decisions. I think his understanding of the offense and the game allowed him to do well.”

Though rushing stats were not available following the exhibition, Rushing said he was pleased with backup running back Josh Wilkerson.

“We didn’t want to bang up (starter) Christian Jenkins, so we put someone else in there,” Rushing said. “I thought Josh ran the ball well.”

Rushing also listed receiver Jardarius Anderson, tight end/defensive end James Allen Coley and tight end/linebacker Turner Janette as standout players.

WCCA head coach David Wright could not be reached for comment.
