There was virtually no stopping the Lafayette Commodores Friday night in their 69-0 win over the Duval Charter (Fla.) Panthers. Lafayette’s first drive of the game had people wondering if it was Friday the 13th. The first play saw running back D.K Buford run 52-yards for the touchdown only to see it called back by a block-in-the-back penalty. The second play of the game saw quarterback Brandon Mack run for a 24-yard touchdown only to have a holding penalty bring the score back as well. The third time was not the charm either, as a Buford’s 15-yard touchdown run was yet again called back for another holding penalty.
The fourth play, however, turned out to be the right one for the Commodores, who finally scored their first of many touchdowns on a 36-yard pass and catch from Mack to Buford. (September 10, 2012, Page 5B)
