Oxford boys win pair on final day »

The Oxford boys soccer team’s patience was tested Saturday. The Chargers were less than 24 hours removed from a 2-2 draw against Olive Branch in their opening match of the Oxford Showcase and found themselves in a scoreless deadlock deep into the second half despite numerous scoring chances against New Hope at FNC Park. But Oxford finally broke through on Tristan Orman’s penalty kick for the match’s only goal, giving the Chargers their first win of the tournament. The Lady Chargers went 1-1-1 over the weekend. (December 21, 2014, Page 4B)
