    ALL-AREA VOLLEYBALL: Family, all-around game help serve up POY honor for ‘Dores’ Robinson

    The holiday season is a time to be thankful. For Lafayette High’s Emily Robinson, it is a time for her to be thankful for family because if it was not for a particular family member showing her the sport of volleyball, she probably would not be this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. (December 17, 2014, Page 1B)

        The Oxford boys basketball team used a familiar formula to run its win total to double digits Saturday night. The Chargers turned their pressurized defense into runouts and knocked down shots inside and out in their half-court offense to improve to 10-0 with a 69-40 rout of Marshall Academy in the final game of the “O” Town Showdown at the Oxford High gym. Lafayette lost both of its game in the “O” Town Showdown. (December 14, 2014, Page 4B)

              Lafayette uses PKs, defense to sweep Oxford

              Oxford and Lafayette met at Bobby Holcomb on Field Tuesday night, but it was not for a football rematch. This installment of the cross-town rivalry happened on the pitch between the high school boys and girls soccer teams.  In the boys game, it looked as if Oxford would coast to an easy win over Lafayette, leading 3-0 with less than 10 minutes remaining. But Lafayette didn’t fade into the cold night quietly and fired off three quick goals of its own to knot the game at 3, sending it to an overtime shootout. After two rounds of penalty kicks, the Commodores emerged with a 4-3 victory. (December 10, 2014, Page 1B)
