Tuesday night went about about as well as it could have for D.K. Buford and the rest of Lafayette’s seniors.
Buford, along with six teammates, were recognized on Senior Night at W.V. Brewer Field before the Commodores played their regular-season finale against Ripley, and the good vibes continued once the game started as Lafayette rolled to an 11-1 win in five innings that clinched the Region 2-4A title and the region’s top playoff seed.

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.
