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)
