                Oxford aiming for deeper 5A postseason run

                The Oxford boys’ soccer team has been itching to get back to this point. Now the goal for the Chargers is to hang around a little while. Oxford is back in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs after sharing the Division 2-5A regular-season championship with Saltillo. The Chargers lost the coin clip to determine which team would be the division’s top seed, meaning Oxford will open the postseason on the road against Germantown on Tuesday at 7 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6)

The Chargers will try to avoid going one-and-done in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs Tuesday when they travel to Madison to take on Division 3-5A champion Germantown. The match will begin at 5:30 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)

                    Chargers run past West Point for first division win

                    Oxford’s best players stayed on the floor, allowing the Chargers to get back to the style of play to which they’re accustomed. They washed a bad taste out of their collective mouth as a result. Senior forward Shelby McEwen led four double-figure scorers for Oxford as the Chargers routed the Green Wave, 87-62, Tuesday night at the Oxford High gym to pick up their first Division 2-5A victory of the season. The win came four days after Oxford (16-3, 1-1 Division 2-5A) lost its division opener at New Hope, the Chargers’ first setback to a team from Mississippi. (January 21, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)
