Oxford’s Lady Chargers ensured themselves a winning record and a spot in the upcoming MHSAA Class 5A playoffs with two one-sided wins over the weekend. A night after defeating West Point 9-0 to remain in a tie for first place in Division 2-5A play, the Lady Chargers defeated Horn Lake 8-1 in what could be their final home match of the season.
In order for Oxford (10-8 overall, 3-1 in division) to get a first-round playoff contest at home, West Point needs to score a goal on Saltillo.

Fresh off of an uncharacteristic three-game losing streak, the Oxford boys soccer team took out its frustrations on crosstown rival Lafayette on a frigid Friday night cruising past the Commodores 8-0 at William L.

OHS SOCCER — The Oxford Lady Chargers soccer team advanced in the Class 5A playoffs Monday with a historic 3-1 win over Saltillo. Tonight will be the first time the Lady Chargers have hosted a North Half title match and the opponent, Ridgeland, is a familiar foe that defeated OHS in the 2006 North Half title match. The Chargers unfortunately weren’t as lucky as the Lady Chargers as they fell 2-0 to Callaway in the second round of the 5A playoffs Monday. (February 2, 2010, Page 8)
