An 0-3 week, after starting the year with two wins, wasn’t the goal of the Lafayette Commodores. But when the team’s best player in Brandon Mack isn’t available to help out against the biggest rival and two teams from Alabama, earning wins for the Commodores was a tough assignment.
Lafayette dropped both of its games in the inaugural Mississippi-Alabama Challenge played Friday and Saturday in the Oxford High gym. The ‘Dores (2-3 overall) lost 62-59 to LaFayette (Ala.) on Friday before falling 68-52 to the Yellowjackets of Oxford (Ala.) on Saturday. (December 17, 2012, Page 3B)
Lafayette will look to build on the success it garnered in the season opener against Bruce Saturday evening in the annual Coach “C” Shootout. The one-day event will be held in the LHS gym and the Commodores will play host to the Grenada Chargers at approximately 7:30.
