There was virtually no stopping the Lafayette Commodores Friday night in their 69-0 win over the Duval Charter (Fla.) Panthers. Lafayette’s first drive of the game had people wondering if it was Friday the 13th.

The third time was not the charm either, as a Buford’s 15-yard touchdown run was yet again called back for another holding penalty.
