NATCHEZ — Cathedral head coach Ron Rushing didn’t have much to say following his team’s 27-14 win against Centreville Academy.

“I guess a win is a win,” Rushing said. “I thought Centreville outplayed us.”

Coming off arguably the biggest game of the year against Adams County Christian School, the Green Wave struggled to put much together against the Tigers.

“We just aren’t playing as a unit,” Rushing said. “It is too late in the season to be making the mistakes we are making.”

A bright spot, however, was the defense, which held Centreville to just 153 yards rushing.

“I thought we played well defensively except for the one big run,” Rushing said.

Green Wave quarterback Connor Mire tossed a touchdown pass and Jardarius Anderson also added a touchdown pass of his own.

Anderson also had 72 rushing yards in the game to lead the team.

Craig Bradley and Andrew Beesley both recorded rushing touchdowns for Cathedral.

The Green Wave were without dynamic playmaker Dee Fleming, but Rushing wasn’t worried.

“We’ve got guys that can do things,” Rushing said. “We moved the ball around to a lot of different people early.”

Next up for Cathedral is a clash with Columbia Academy, who Rushing said is going to be a tough test.

“I’m thinking if we don’t start playing together, it could be ugly,” he said. “Columbia is a really good football team.”
