TUPELO — The Lafayette Commodores opened up the 2013 season just like they did in 2012, with a matchup against the Tupelo Golden Wave Friday night.
This year’s matchup was a far cry from the 8-3 defensive struggle that took place last season as Tupelo defeated the Commodores 36-21. (August 26, 2013, Page 3B)

After facing each other earlier in the week, the Lafayette Commodores and Senatobia Warriors hooked up for a rematch Friday night, this time at WV Brewer Field. The Commodores won Tuesday’s game 11-1, and while the offensive surge was not there on Friday, Lafayette defeated the Warriors for the second time in four days with a 6-1 victory.
Senatobia senior pitcher Davis Brown kept the Commodores’ offense in check through most of the game.
