|Cathedral remains in playoff picture|
Cathedral High avenged its only loss during the regular season last year, but more importantly kept its playoff hopes alive with a 28-18 win over Dexter Friday in Tylertown, Ms.
"We started out slow," said Cathedral coach Ron Rushing. "We schemed to run right at them. We had some drives, but could not finish them off. We hopped into the spread and liked what we saw."
Quarterback Thomas Garrity was 7-of-12 for 173 yards, including touchdown passes of 65 yards to Parker Rymer and 17 yards to Kyle Bradley.
Christian Jenkins rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown.
Cathedral hosts Hinds Friday.
A win would clinch third place for the Green Wave (5-3 overall and 4-3 in Region 4-1A. A loss would put the Wave out of the playoffs.
"This is a playoff game for us," Rushing said. "Hinds is very athletic. They run the ball right at you and their defense has a number of athletes. They only give up 12 points a game."
