Cathedral turns off the Flash

NATCHEZ — Senior night for Cathedral put the Green Wave in an awkward situation early on Tuesday, as the Green Wave had three centers on the court for the first period.

Despite the early setback, Cathedral defended their home court well against rival St. Aloysius, defeating the Flashes easily 67-49.

The Green Wave managed just one point through four and a half minutes of play.

“It’s senior night and we started our four seniors with Daniel,” head coach Peter Arnold said.” So we had three centers, a point guard and a shooting guard on the floor.”

The offense struggled early, but the points began to pile up as the game progressed and the offense moved more fluidly.

After only scoring 11 in the first period, Cathedral managed 17, 18 and 21 in the final three periods. The Green Wave led 28-12 at halftime.

“This game was all about defense,” Arnold said. “We played them man to man and we only allowed them to score 12 points heading into half time. Overall, we played really well defensively.”

The Green Wave, heading into the fourth period, led by 25 against their division rival. The game by then was over so many Green Wave starters were pulled to give other players some reps.

With the starters out, the Flashes managed 28 points in the fourth period but with the game out of reach, it did not matter too much. The Green Wave had already beaten their division rival.

“There’s a so-called rivalry between us and St. Al,” Arnold said. “But that was a district game so every district game is important. That was only our third district win this season.”

Cathedral’s offense managed to score 67 points with Caleb Upton sidelined with a torn ligament in his left arm and Daniel Huffines limited to just two points.

Khalil Brice led the Green Wave with 14 points. Ten other Cathedral players managed to add points on the scoreboard.

Cathedral 52 girls,

St. Aloysius 28

The Cathedral girls handled business on senior night as well, defeating St. Aloysius easily, 52-28.

Ginny Daggett led all scorers with 17 points.

The Lady Green Wave defense kept the Lady Flashes in check by not allowing a double-digit period. The Green Wave managed three double-digit quarters in the victory.

“The seniors stepped up well tonight,” head coach Bernita Dunbar said. “Overall, we played well and I’m very proud of them.”

Nine Cathedral girls scored in the contest.
