Crosstown Classic highlights area prep schedule

The annual showdown between Lafayette and Oxford will take center stage tonight at Bobby Holcomb Field, highlighting this week’s area prep football schedule.

Water Valley hasn’t had the same success lately, taking a two-game losing streak into tonight’s game against Bruce at Bobby Clark Field. The Blue Devils are coming off a 28-7 loss to Calhoun City. (September 12, 2014, Page 1B)
