Brandon Mack

‘Dores struggle against Alabama counterparts

An 0-3 week, after starting the year with two wins, wasn’t the goal of the Lafayette Commodores. But when the team’s best player in Brandon Mack isn’t available to help out against the biggest rival and two teams from Alabama, earning wins for the Commodores was a tough assignment.

Lafayette dropped both of its games in the inaugural Mississippi-Alabama Challenge played Friday and Saturday in the Oxford High gym. The ‘Dores (2-3 overall) lost 62-59 to LaFayette (Ala.) on Friday before falling 68-52 to the Yellowjackets of Oxford (Ala.) on Saturday. (December 17, 2012, Page 3B)

Adamson’s consistent leadership paves season for Oxford

Oxford’s reversal of fortune on the gridiron this season was a result of many different players. For a team that was 5-6 and not in the playoffs in 2011, an 11-2 overall record and a trip to the semifinals of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs in 2012 took a lot of hard work on the part of several top players.

OHS makes adjustments to top ‘Dores

Adjustments made in the second half of Tuesday night’s game between Lafayette and Oxford in the OHS gym ultimately led the Chargers to a 55-46 win over the Commodores.

In a matchup that didn’t favor the Chargers from a physical standpoint, OHS coach Drew Tyler knew he had to maximize his team’s chances on offense while also getting a maximum overall effort everywhere else in order to pull out the win.

Thankfully for Tyler’s sake, the Chargers (4-5 overall) kept the game close enough to let their veteran coach work his magic in the halfcourt with set plays in the decisive fourth quarter. (December 12, 2012, Page 4B)

‘Bought-in’ LHS tops Grenada

It was hard to tell that the Lafayette Commodores hadn’t been in the gym but for three weeks as a team during Saturday night’s game with Grenada. Lafayette led the Chargers from start to finish in its contest in the annual Coach “C” Shootout by playing tough defense, rebounding and shooting high-percentage shots.

The end result was a 60-44 win for the Commodores, who are now 2-0 for the first time in several seasons. (December 10, 2012, Page 4B)

James likes what he sees in his ‘Dores

Lafayette will look to build on the success it garnered in the season opener against Bruce Saturday evening in the annual Coach “C” Shootout. The one-day event will be held in the LHS gym and the Commodores will play host to the Grenada Chargers at approximately 7:30.

Robinson, Tigers too much for LHS

MACON — Lafayette’s run as the MHSAA state champion in Class 4A came to an end this past Friday night at the hands of the team many feel will win it all. In a game that felt more like a 4A North Half title contest rather than a second-round matchup, both defenses and special teams units dictated the pace. (more…) (November 12, 2012, Page 4B)
