          OMS boys, LMS girls earn wins against cross-town rivals

          The Crosstown Classic hit the hardwood for the first time this season when Oxford Middle School traveled down Highway 6 to play Lafayette Middle School inside the LHS gym Monday night.  It was all Chargers on the boys’ side of things as Oxford swept the seventh- and eighth-grade games.  In the seventh-grade game, the Chargers (6-0) won decisively over the Commodores, 27-5. The game was never in doubt as Oxford had full command due to a strong defensive effort. The Lafayette Middle School girls swept Oxford in both games. (November 18, 2014, Page 7)

            Commodores’ season comes to an end in 14-6 loss to Cleveland

            It was a game of missed opportunities for Lafayette as its season came to a screeching halt in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night. Facing a one-possession deficit for most of the second half, the Commodores (8-5) forced three Cleveland turnovers, two of those inside the Wildcats’ own territory. But those turnovers led to zero points for Lafayette as Cleveland (12-1) clung to its lead and ultimately advanced with a 14-6 victory at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 16, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

                ‘Dores aim to slow down Cleveland again

                Cleveland isn’t much for trickeration. The Wildcats have made a living pounding opponents into submission this season, racking up more than 4,100 rushing yards. Cleveland is winning by an average of 30 points per game with its veer offense with last week’s 31-point output against Amory being the lowest point total for the Wildcats all season. There’s no secret as to what Lafayette will be dealing with when the teams square off in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)

Buford Stadium, earning a second- round home date with Cleveland, a 31-6 winner over Amory, this Friday. (November 9, 2014, Page 5B)
