    AMORY — The Lafayette Lady Commodores may have gotten a glimpse of their future Thursday night.

    Leading the home Amory Lady Panthers onto the pitch was senior Addie Forbus, a future Ole Miss soccer player fresh off setting the state’s career goal mark (228) last week.

    Meanwhile, LHS freshman Ally Houghton, a soft-spoken sniper in her own right, appears poised to pick up where Forbus leaves off and make her own mark on the Magnolia State. (more…) (January 25, 2013, Page 10A)

            ‘Dores pitch their way into 4A quarters

            It took a veteran pitching performance from senior Luke Stanley for a young Lafayette Commodores team to blank Amory 3-0 on Thursday.

            The next day, Lafayette turned the ball over to right-hander Eli Murphree and the freshman responded.

            Murphree allowed one run over six innings before turning the ball over to Stanley to close out the 2-1 victory at W.V. Brewer Field.
            With the win, the Commodores (18-10 overall) advance to the quarterfinals of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs to face Region 2-4A foe New Albany. (April 30, 2012, Page 6)
