The Lafayette Commodores earned their first win in ninth-grade football Monday with a 14-0 shutout of Itawmaba AHS. The coaching staff credited the play of the entire defense and for the team continuing to battle after a slow start to the season.
Cam Herod led the team with a 4-yard scoring run on offense and the return of an interception 35 yards for a touchdown on defense. The team will be back in action at home against Senatobia on Sept. 28. (September 21, 2010, Page 7)
