        Commodores’ season comes to an end in 14-6 loss to Cleveland

        It was a game of missed opportunities for Lafayette as its season came to a screeching halt in the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Friday night. Facing a one-possession deficit for most of the second half, the Commodores (8-5) forced three Cleveland turnovers, two of those inside the Wildcats’ own territory. But those turnovers led to zero points for Lafayette as Cleveland (12-1) clung to its lead and ultimately advanced with a 14-6 victory at William L. Buford Stadium. (November 16, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

              Lafayette’s game against Houston on Friday night quickly turned into a tuneup for its next opponent in the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs. The Commodores rushed for 386 yards, kept Houston’s offense from doing much of anything and cruised to their sixth straight win with a 41-16 victory over the Hilltoppers at William L.
