Eric Robertson

Injuries, lack of QB, make for unique spring for LHS

It has been a patchwork spring for the Lafayette High football team. With the baseball team making a deep run into the postseason, Lafayette coach Eric Robertson has been without key personnel during spring drills. That has not stopped the Commodores from getting productive reps out of the players he does have available. The injury also made an appearing in the Commodore locker room as several players suffered severe injuries, including the defensive line. (May 14, 2015, Page 7)

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)

‘Dores aim to slow down Cleveland again

Cleveland isn’t much for trickeration. The Wildcats have made a living pounding opponents into submission this season, racking up more than 4,100 rushing yards. Cleveland is winning by an average of 30 points per game with its veer offense with last week’s 31-point output against Amory being the lowest point total for the Wildcats all season. There’s no secret as to what Lafayette will be dealing with when the teams square off in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 13, 2014, Page 6A)

Buford Stadium, earning a second- round home date with Cleveland, a 31-6 winner over Amory, this Friday. (November 9, 2014, Page 5B)

Houston getting Commodores’ full attention

Lafayette is a heavy favorite in its MHSAA Class 4A playoff opener. At least that’s how its appears on paper.

The Hilltoppers (5-6, 2-3 Region 4-4A) took a 34-10 beating to Noxubee County their last time out. (November 6, 2014, Page 6A)

Chargers, Commodores have plenty to play for

Will it be a trick or a teat for the Oxford and Lafayette football teams tonight? The two area prep teams are preparing for their respective showdowns on All Hallow’s Eve.
