SPORTS BLOG: SALTILLO — The Oxford Chargers used a five touchdown performance from senior running back Mont Dean and a much more physical defense in the second half to capture a 35-28 overtime win against Region 1-5A foe Saltillo Friday night at Willis Wright Stadium.
Dean, who ran for 365 yards on 32 carries, scored on runs of 1, 58, 55, 40 yards and the game-winner from 1-yard out in overtime on third-and-goal.
The win was much needed for the Chargers (5-4 overall, 3-2 Region 1-5A), who needed to win two of its last three games coming into the matchup in order to make the playoffs.
