Green Wave spoil Tigers’ homecoming

CENTREVILLE — With the possibility of overtime looming, Cathedral High School’s defense came up with a big stop when it needed it the most.

With six second remaining in the fourth quarter, Centreville Academy scored a touchdown to make it a 44-42 game and went for two. The Green Wave kept the Tigers out of the end zone on the conversion attempt, recovered the onside kick, and escaped with the two-point win in Centreville’s homecoming game.

“We played good enough in the clutch to pull it out,” Cathedral head coach Chuck Darbonne said.

This game went back and forth throughout with neither team having more than an eight-point lead. And the Green Wave did that three times — 22-14 early in the second quarter, 30-22 nearly midway through the third quarter, and 44-36 with 4:52 left in the fourth quarter.

Each time, Centreville would answer with a touchdown of its own. But after its last one in the fourth quarter, the Tigers would be denied the opportunity to extend the game into overtime.

J.C. Harris led Cathedral’s offense with four rushing touchdowns. Quarterback J.T. Taylor threw one touchdown pass to Ben White and ran for another.

“J.C. ran hard tonight. He didn’t come out of the game for one play. He played offense and defense. Offensive line played fantastic,” Darbonne said. “Defensively, Bryson Moore, Jones Richardson, Harris, and Ethan Huff played great. Chris Johnson as well.”

It was another tough home loss for Centreville, which has now lost two in a row after a two-game winning streak.

“Centreville played really hard. They’re well-coached,” Darbonne said. “We made some adjustments and played better defensively in the second half.”

Cathedral (5-3) hosts Amite School Center for homecoming Friday at 7 p.m.

Centreville Academy (3-5) travels to face Adams County Christian School Friday at 7 p.m.
