Two games, no problem for the Lafayette as the Irish pulled out the brooms and swept the Platte County Pirates in the boys and girls home opener on Friday night.

On the boys side, Lafayette won 77-65. D'Karee Gray led the Irish with 19 points, but Trey Washington (15), Diego Bernard (14) and Ike Book (14) also reached double figures in scoring.

On the girls side, it was a defensive struggle throughout, but the Lady Irish used a late run to ice the game, 48-36.

The Lady Irish will be back in action tomorrow at home against Rock Bridge.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
