NATCHEZ — With a minute left to play in Tuesday’s soccer game between Cathedral Lady Green Wave defeated Adams County Christian School Lady Rebels, Izzy Dupre passed the ball to Olivia Moore, who with her left foot scored a goal and the Cathedral won 1-0.

“All of that adrenaline was rushing,” Moore said. “I just thought, If I don’t make it now, then we only have a minute left. I just shot as fast as I could and hoped that it went in. Then it did and that was exciting.”

In the first half, the Green Wave had nine shots on goal. Early in the first half, Moore attempted to score the first goal of the game. Moore made it through the Rebels’ defense and shot the ball toward the goal. The ball went off the crossbar. Moore said she felt disappointed about that shot.

“I was just ready to get us ahead in the game,” Moore said. “If we had lost this one, then we would have been in second in the district. We want to be in first in district this year.”

In total, the Green Wave had 20 shots on goal. It was the 20th shot on goal that went in for them. Green Wave head coach Dennis Hogue said Tuesday’s game was a bittersweet match.

“I liked our girls’ tenacity. They don’t give up and don’t quit,” Hogue said. “Sometimes they don’t have to play as hard as they do. They just have to play smarter. We didn’t do that today. We had to play hard because we weren’t playing smart.”

For 78-and-half minutes, the Rebels possessed the ball for 90% of the game. The Rebels had six shots on goal in total. Rebels head coach Jimmy Allgood said he thought the Rebels should have won the game.

“I’m very proud of our ladies stepping it up,” Allgood said. “They worked hard all year long. At the end of the day, for them to defeat us in the last minute, it was just a simple mistake.”

The Cathedral Green Wave (11-3-1) will have a match at 5:30 on Sept. 19 at Oak Forest Academy.
