NATCHEZ — The Cathedral Lady Green Wave soccer team celebrated senior night Monday by cruising to a 5-1 victory over Adams County Christian School.

The game featured plenty of rain and an hour-long lightning delay before play resumed.

The weather didn’t slow the Green Wave down as three first-half goals, and another two led to a dominating victory.

“It’s just fulfilling as a coach to see them get to a point that they can win games as a unit,” said Dennis Hogue head soccer coach. “The girls were led by senior Alexandra Person, who scored two goals and just missed a hat trick as her strike in the closing minutes of the contest missed left of the goalpost.

Five seniors were honored as they played their final home game for the Green Wave: 2017 All-district nominee Alexandra Person played her final home game as she plans to attend Louisiana State University in the fall to further her education; 2017 All-district nominee Taylor Maples wore her Green Wave home jersey for the last time as she plans to attend Mississippi State in the upcoming year; Maggie Ulmer will also seek her degree from Mississippi State as she finished her senior season off with the Green Wave; Christi Harrison completed her soccer career with Cathedral and she plans to attend the University of Mississippi in the fall; and lastly, Samantha Montgomery rounds out the 2018 senior class soccer team and she will be attending Louisiana Tech in the fall to further her education.

Hogue said he is pleased with the girls, and how they’ve grown as young ladies.

“I’m super proud of them, and most of them I’ve had for five years from the eighth grade,” Hogue said. “From a very young age, to where they are tonight, it’s just leaps and bounds,” Hogue said.

Ulmer who played her first full season this year accepted the challenge, and received high praise from her coach.

“She stepped in, caught up with these girls who have been playing for years. We were lucky that she decided to pick it up,” Hogue said.

The Green Wave finished the season with a 10-4 overall record, and were seen very emotional after concluding their 2018 season.

“They’re just like a band of brothers,” Hogue said, “but a band of sisters.”
