The Lafayette Middle School Commodores wrapped up their baseball season Monday with a 4-3 loss to Marshall Academy in the first round of the Tri-Lakes Conference playoffs at Oxford High’s Edwin Moak Field.
The Patriots scored three runs in the first on an error and two wild pitches, and while Lafayette (2-8-1 overall) chipped away at Marshall Academy’s lead, it was never able to recover. (April 10, 2012, Page 9)
Monday’s middle school version of the Crosstown Classic had more on the line than just rivalry pride.
When Lafayette and Oxford met on the baseball diamond at Edwin Moak Field, both the Chargers and Commodores had a more immediate reward in mind — playoff seeding.
After claiming both games Monday 4-0 and 6-2, the Chargers secured the top spot in the Tri-Lakes Conference with a perfect league record. (April 3, 2012, Page 9)
