Corinth edges LHS in OT thriller

CORINTH — Tuesday’s Class 4A playoff soccer match between the Lafayette Lady Commodores and Corinth Lady Warriors was filled with hustle, passion and a lot of drama. It was played the way coach LHS coach Melinda Scruggs wants her team to play it.

LHS soccer set to start season today

The Lafayette soccer teams will officially kick off their season today with road matches at Hernando.
