      Lafayette splits with CHS in divisional showdown

      Lafayette wrapped up its home-and-home series on the pitch with Cleveland on Saturday, splitting with the visitors.

      While the LHS girls cruised to a 6-0 victory on a gusty Saturday afternoon at William L. Buford Stadium, the Commodores were defeated 6-2.

      In the girls’ showdown, Lafayette scored five goals in the first half and never let Cleveland gain any sort of confidence to get back in the game. (January 16, 2012, Page 8)

        Liggins, D. Dennis pace ‘Dores in rout

        Shortly after Cleveland’s Tyler Slaughter eluded the entire Lafayette Commodore defense to score an 80-yard touchdown in Friday’s season opener at Mickey Sellers Stadium, LHS quarterback Jeremy Liggins started shaking his head and verbally encouraging his teammates.

        If Liggins and the Commodores weren’t fired up to beat the Wildcats prior to kickoff, they were after his mini speech on the sidelines.

          ‘Dores headed to Cleveland

          Another run at winning a Class 4A state title begins in earnest Friday night for the Lafayette High Commodores. A year after advancing to the championship game and posting a 14-2 overall record, the Commodores will try to return to Jackson to take care of some unfinished business.

          The first game on the road to the Mississippi Veterans Coliseum begins at Cleveland, a place the Commodores suffered a loss the last time they visited in 2008.

          LHS coach Anthony Hart said the Wildcats would likely spread the ball out and try to use their abundance of speed to make plays. (August 19, 2010, Page 6)
