Published 12:00 am Monday, March 14, 2005

BOGUE CHITTO &045; The Cathedral Green Wave made short work of another Division 7-1A opponents and on Friday night got solid pitching from Patrick McDonough and Jeremy Davis in a 14-0 win over the Bogue Chitto Bobcats in five innings Friday night.

McDonough was the winning pitcher for Cathedral (7-1, 2-0) as he pitched the first three innings, striking out six while allowing just one hit and one walk. Davis pitched the final two innings and struck out five.

&uot;He had a good game tonight,&uot; Green Wave head coach Craig Beesley said of McDonough. &uot;He went mainly with his fastball and curveball. We had our control tonight.&uot;

Cathedral led Bogue Chitto (0-3, 0-2) had already scored two runs in the top of the second before Preston Hicks hit a two-out, grand slam home run to make it a 6-0 lead.

Peabody 9, Vidalia 2

ALEXANDRIA, La. &045; Instead of facing the Alexandria Senior High (A.S.H.) Trojans at the Bolton Tournament, the Vikings ended up taking on the Warhorses, who ended up scoring in four of the five innings played.

Vidalia (6-2) had very little time to prepare for a team it didn’t know it was facing until a last-minute schedule change and it showed.

&uot;We struck out 10 times and half of those times were looking,&uot; Vikings head coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir said. &uot;I don’t know what it was. I don’t know if it was because we were late getting back.&uot;

St. Joseph’s 8, Monterey 1

HARRISONBURG, La. &045; Jordan Rabalais pitched a solid game for St. Joseph’s while the Eagles took advantage of six Monterey errors to get the win at the Harrisonburg tournament.

Rabalais held Monterey (0-5) to just one run on three hits in five innings.

&uot;We just had a bad day hitting and fielding,&uot; Wolves head coach Hank Zizzi said.
