Cathedral falls to Bowling Green 20-0

NATCHEZ — Bowling Green School senior Rashaan Duke, playing quarterback instead of his usual wide receiver position, threw for 150 yards and two touchdown passes as the Bowling Green School Buccaneers defeated the Cathedral High School Green Wave 20-0 Friday night at D’Evereux Stadium.

Duke completed 13 of 25 passes with no interceptions. Both touchdown passes went to junior running back Jon-Ashton Dukes, who ended up catching 10 passes for 56 yards. Bowling Green’s defense held Cathedral to 192 yards of total offense and picked off Green Wave senior quarterback JT Taylor three times.

“We turned the ball over too much. Missed too many blocks,” Cathedral head coach Chuck Darbonne said. “We weren’t able to put it all together. We put some players in different positions they’re not used to.”

After a scoreless first quarter, the Buccaneers scored at the 4:28 mark of the second quarter and went into halftime with a 6-0 lead. They scored again with 2:54 to go in the third quarter for a 12-0 advantage and then put the game on ice with a late touchdown and two-point conversion in the fourth quarter. “We played hard to the end. I’m happy with the way they played,” Darbonne said.

Taylor threw 35 passes, but only completed 12 of them for 92 yards. Ben White had seven receptions for 48 yards and JC Harris was the Green Wave’s leading rusher with four carries for 26 yards.

Landon Lees and KJ Washington, who had four carries for 25 yards, led the defense with six tackles each.

Cathedral (0-1) hits the road next Friday when it plays at St. Joseph Madison. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
