Lafayette punctuated the end of the regular season with an 8-6 victory over North Pontotoc under its belt. The win Wednesday afternoon at W.V. Brewer Field wasn’t always a thing of beauty, but the Commodores did what they had to do when it counted to garner their seventh straight victory. (April 19, 2012, Page 6)

While the LHS girls cruised to a 6-0 victory on a gusty Saturday afternoon at William L. Buford Stadium, the Commodores were defeated 6-2.

The answer to the question of exactly who the best team in Region 2-4A this year was answered in impressive fashion by the No. 1 ranked Lafayette Commodores Thursday night at William L.
