BLOG: SENATOBIA— Coming off of a big win last week, some Chargers were worried Friday night’s game at Senatobia could end up being a “trap game” for Oxford.
That wasn’t the case, however, as the visiting Chargers jumped out to a 17-point lead and held on to defeat the Warriors 34-14.
Oxford got on the scoreboard first with 4:47 remaining in the first quarter when a pass from quarterback Parker Adamson went through the hands of intended target Conrey Meagher and into the arms of Joey Walden. The OHS receiver was then able to fend off two Senatobia defenders and run 22 yards for the game’s first score.
Mid-way through the second frame Adamson clicked a ball over the middle of the field to an open Tyrell McGee in the end zone 21 yards down the field to go ahead 14-0.
Kicker/punter Cody Mills booted his first of two short-range field goals four minutes later to put OHS (4-0 overall) ahead 17-0.
Senatobia stayed within striking distance, breaking free for touchdown runs of 80 and 72 yards two of their next five offensive plays.
Mills’ second field goal split the uprights as the first-half clock expired to put the Chargers ahead 20-0.
Adamson orchestrated an eight-play, 75-yard drive to open the second half that was punctuated by an 11-yard touchdown run by Meagher.
Early in the fourth quarter, Courtland Barnes concluded Oxford’s scoring with a tough 5-yard touchdown run.
