Greg Moore led the Greenwave in rushing with 77 yards, which included a 46-yard run.

Quarterback Ben Foster, who was starting in place of injured starter Connor Mire, threw for 98 yards and one touchdown.

“We are dealing with a lot of injuries this year,” Darbonne said. “We just had some guys that missed assignments, some guys that were out of position.”

Cathedral finishes the year with a 3-8 mark.
