Tupelo blanks Commodores in opener

Lafayette ran 43 offensive plays in its season opener against Tupelo Friday night. The Golden Wave’s defense didn’t let the Commodores do much on any of them.

Tupelo also forced the Commodores into three turnovers, including Demaris Wise’s 65-yard pick-six on the game’s final play, turning the matchup of state championship game participants from a season ago into a one-sided affair. (August 25, 2014, Page 8)
