Oxford ended the regular season on a high with two impressive wins over Tupelo and Amory. The Chargers enter their MHSAA Class 5A playoff series against Starkville coming off a 2-0 win over Tupelo Friday and a 6-3 win over Amory in eight innings on Saturday afternoon. The two wins improved the Chargers to 22-6 overall.
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)
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.

As Chris Baughman found out Monday, there’s nothing wrong with learning a thing or two on your birthday.
Due to poor weather over the weekend, a pair of four-inning jamboree games was rescheduled for Baughman’s birthday at Edwin Moak Field and the Chargers made the doubleheader a learning experience. (more…) (February 21, 2012, Page 8)
AMORY — It seems funny to write a team “limited” an opposing quarterback to 193 yards passing, but that’s exactly what the Commodores did on Friday night when they held one of the nation’s top statistical passers in Amory quarterback Forest Williams well under his average of nearly 400 yards.
