MADISON – For the second straight year, Oxford’s postseason stay was a short one. Germantown rallied from an early deficit to score a trio of unanswered goals to defeat the Chargers 3-1 in the opening match of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs for both teams Tuesday night, making it back-to-back first-round exits for Oxford.

Not even Oxford’s most productive night of offense could separate the top two teams in Division 2-5A boys soccer standings. The Chargers wrapped up division play with little resistance Friday, finding the back of the net early and often in a 14-0 rout of West Point on Senior Night at Bobby Holcomb Field to secure a share of the division title with Saltillo.
