BLOG — Oxford made short work of the Lewisburg Patriots Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field. With the OHS Homecoming queen set to be announced at halftime, the Chargers wanted to make sure there wasn’t a need for any extra drama.
The Chargers scored early and often and they led the Patriots 37-0 after the first 24 minutes of play. OHS quarterback Jack Abraham was razor sharp as he threw for three touchdowns in the opening half. Abraham’s first touchdown of the night covered just 2 yards to Kyree White but it was Oxford coach Johnny Hill‘s most memorable throw because Abraham perfectly lofted the ball to the far back pylon, enabling White to elude his defender as he caught the ball in stride.
Running back Kenzie Phillips continued to impresses as he rushed for two more touchdowns in the victory. His first score — 21 yards — got the scoring started on the night for the Chargers, who improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in Region 1-5A. Phillips tacked on an 11-yard scoring rush to cap the first half for the Chargers and finished with 83 yards on just eight carries.
