‘Dores turn page, open region play at Ripley

After a tough loss to Memphis University School last week, the Lafayette Commodores must regroup and turn their focus toward the beginning of a new season and the games that count — region play.  The Commodores (2-4) may have lost their final tune-up game against MUS, but coach Eric Robertson liked the effort he saw in his team heading into its first Region 2-4A tilt at Ripley (4-2) on Friday. (October 2, 2014, Page 6A)

Abraham-to-White connection sparks Chargers’ offense

Crosstown Classic highlights area prep schedule

The annual showdown between Lafayette and Oxford will take center stage tonight at Bobby Holcomb Field, highlighting this week’s area prep football schedule.

Lafayette has spent more time trying to get out of its own way than it has in the end zone. (September 11, 2014, Page 8)
