      ‘Dores prep for Shannon’s Wing-T offense

      The Lafayette Commodores football team is coming off a tough loss to crosstown rival Oxford last week.

        Oxford is making this rivalry thing look easy.

            Crosstown Classic highlights area prep schedule

            The annual showdown between Lafayette and Oxford will take center stage tonight at Bobby Holcomb Field, highlighting this week’s area prep football schedule. The Chargers come into the Crosstown Classic riding the momentum of a convincing 50-15 victory at Cleveland East Side a week ago while Lafayette entered the win column for the first time with a 3-0 win over DeSoto Central. Water Valley hasn’t had the same success lately, taking a two-game losing streak into tonight’s game against Bruce at Bobby Clark Field. The Blue Devils are coming off a 28-7 loss to Calhoun City. (September 12, 2014, Page 1B)

              ‘Dores searching for points to keep up with Chargers

              It’s been the same routine for Lafayette. Week after week, the Commodores’ defense spends a majority of the game’s 48 minutes on the field keeping the opposing offense in check while the offense provides little relief. Lafayette has spent more time trying to get out of its own way than it has in the end zone. (September 11, 2014, Page 8)

The teams will renew their rivalry in the annual Crosstown Classic on Friday at Bobby Holcomb Field. Both squads picked up wins last week, and it didn’t take long after those victories for the attention to turn to one another. (September 8, 2014, Page 6)
