                  The annual showdown between Lafayette and Oxford will take center stage tonight at Bobby Holcomb Field, highlighting this week’s area prep football schedule.

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)
