‘Dores prep for Shannon’s Wing-T offense

The Lafayette Commodores football team is coming off a tough loss to crosstown rival Oxford last week. Unlike Oxford, which has a bye week, the Commodores (1-3) must have a quick turnaround as they welcome the Shannon Red Raiders (1-2) to William L. Buford Stadium on Friday night. (September 18, 2014, Page 8)

Abraham-to-White connection sparks Chargers’ offense

Oxford was clinging to a 3-point lead over Lafayette. The offense had not been able to do much outside of one touchdown and a field goal in the first half of the Crosstown Classic on Friday night. Wide receiver Kyree White decided to change that. (September 14, 2014, Page 4B)

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. The Chargers come into the Crosstown Classic riding the momentum of a convincing 50-15 victory at Cleveland East Side a week ago while Lafayette entered the win column for the first time with a 3-0 win over DeSoto Central. Water Valley hasn’t had the same success lately, taking a two-game losing streak into tonight’s game against Bruce at Bobby Clark Field. The Blue Devils are coming off a 28-7 loss to Calhoun City. (September 12, 2014, Page 1B)

Oxford, Lafayette set for latest rivalry tussle

Friendships have been put on hold this week. It’s time for the Crosstown Classic, which means loyalty to school and team is reigning supreme. Oxford and Lafayette will renew their annual rivalry on the football field Friday night. Kickoff from Bobby Holcomb Field is set for 7 p.m. (September 11, 2014, Page 8)

‘Dores searching for points to keep up with Chargers

It’s been the same routine for Lafayette. Week after week, the Commodores’ defense spends a majority of the game’s 48 minutes on the field keeping the opposing offense in check while the offense provides little relief. 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)

Oxford, Lafayette quickly turn attention to Crosstown Classic

Oxford and Lafayette each had three opponents to worry about before worrying about each other. But all of that is out of the way now. The teams will renew their rivalry in the annual Crosstown Classic on Friday at Bobby Holcomb Field. Both squads picked up wins last week, and it didn’t take long after those victories for the attention to turn to one another. (September 8, 2014, Page 6)

Lafayette gets in win column

After two weeks of setbacks, Lafayette coach Eric Robertson gathered his team close Friday night. “The W,” he said, was all that mattered. (September 7, 2014, Page 5B)

Area prep teams look to get back on track

All three area high school football teams will be trying to get back in the win column tonight after suffering setbacks last week. Two of them will attempt to do it on the road as Oxford makes the trek to Cleveland to take on East Side while Water Valley travels to Calhoun City. Lafayette will stay at home for the third straight week, looking for its first win of the year against DeSoto Central. (September 5, 2014, Page 6)

Commodores still searching for first win

The season has started off the way the Lafayette Commodores would have liked it too. Two losses to Tupelo and Corinth to begin the season have the Commodores (0-2) looking to put a one in the win column. They have their chance this Friday but it won’t be easy as they welcome the DeSoto Central Jaguars (1-1). (September 4, 2014, Page 8)

Rivalry games highlight prep slate

A pair of special rivalry games are coming up for two of the three local high school teams, while the third team is looking to get in the win column after a season-opening setback.
