Lafayette football

Lafayette splits with South Panola

The Lafayette Middle School football teams split a pair of games with South Panola in Batesville on Tuesday night. The seventh-grade Tigers beat Lafayette 16-0, while the older Commodores won 18-12 thanks to a great individual night from Atarius Owens, who scored all three touchdowns in the victory. Owens’ last touchdown covered 31 yards and it came with just seven seconds left in the game and the scored tied 12-12. South Panola had scored its last touchdown with just two minutes left in the fourth quarter. Owens scored his touchdown on a 31-yard run at the 3:30 mark of the second quarter and his second on a 70-yard run with 4:30 left in the third. (more…) (September 19, 2012, Page 7)

    Mack does it all for LHS in Shannon win

    Lafayette knew it would have its hands full heading into Friday’s Class 4A showdown against Shannon.

    The Commodores’ premonition proved to be spot on as the home team had to slug it out with the Red Raiders in the second half to pull out a 44-25 victory. (more…) (September 18, 2012, Page 6)

      Lafayette holds on to defeat Shannon

      One week after waltzing to a win against first-year program in Duval Charter (Jacksonville, Fla.), the Commodores had their work cut out for them against the Shannon Red Raiders. (more…) (September 17, 2012, Page 3B)

        Lafayette turns over Shannon in 44-25 victory

        BLOG: It seems odd, but after last week’s blowout win against Duval Charter (Jacksonville, Fla.), the Lafayette Commodores needed Friday night’s battle against Shannon at William L. Buford Stadium prior to the start of region play.

          LHS prepares to host Red Raiders

          Last week, Lafayette had a cakewalk of a game against Duval Charter, scoring almost at will in its 69-0 win at William L. Buford Stadium.

          By most accounts, Friday’s game against Shannon won’t even be in the same hemisphere as last week’s.

          The Red Raiders (2-2 overall), once a thorn in Lafayette’s side before the Commodores (3-1) became a mainstay in the Class 4A championship game, will prove to be a greater challenge. (September 13, 2012, Page 8)

            Robles kicks his way to POW honor

            Alex Robles has a knack for late-game heroics.

            Friday, the sophomore kicker from Water Valley knocked in his second career game-winning field goal when he punched through a 42-yard attempt with under a minute remaining in the Blue Devils’ 17-16 win against Bruce. (September 11, 2012, Page 9)

              Lafayette takes care of business with 69-0 win

              There was virtually no stopping the Lafayette Commodores Friday night in their 69-0 win over the Duval Charter (Fla.) Panthers. Lafayette’s first drive of the game had people wondering if it was Friday the 13th. The first play saw running back D.K Buford run 52-yards for the touchdown only to see it called back by a block-in-the-back penalty. The second play of the game saw quarterback Brandon Mack run for a 24-yard touchdown only to have a holding penalty bring the score back as well. The third time was not the charm either, as a Buford’s 15-yard touchdown run was yet again called back for another holding penalty.

              The fourth play, however, turned out to be the right one for the Commodores, who finally scored their first of many touchdowns on a 36-yard pass and catch from Mack to Buford. (September 10, 2012, Page 5B)
