Oxford’s return to the playoffs will be against a familiar foe in Hernando. The best-of-three series begins Friday evening at 6. The second game will be played in Hernando on Saturday at 1 p.m., while the third game, if necessary, would be played back at OHS on Monday.
OHS coach Chris Baughaman had the luxury of scouting the Tigers (17-10 overall) last weekend when they hosted Yazoo City because his Chargers had earned a bye as the No. 1 seed out of Division 2-5A. Baughman has also seen Hernando play this season in the Oxford Spring Break Tournament where it went 2-2 and both losses were to playoff teams in Lafayette (5-3) and Ridgeland (6-5).
While the Tigers are young, they have talent and are expected to put up a fight against a former division rival. (April 28, 2011, Page 6)
