SENATOBIA— Coming off of an emotional win last week, it would have been understandable if the Oxford Chargers played flat Friday at Senatobia.
With the exception of a few hiccups on defense, that wasn’t the case as the Chargers never trailed during their 34-14 victory over the Warriors. (September 10, 2012, Page 3B)
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.

Six years of frustration over losing to Lafayette was erased in one night for the Oxford Chargers thanks to an inspired and near flawless defensive performance. The Chargers defeated the fifth-ranked Commodores 19-0 in front of a jubilant home crowd at Bobby Holcomb Field and regional television audience watching live on Fox Sports South on Thursday night by pounding the Commodores into submission at the point of attack.

There may be different names running the Lafayette High offense this season but Oxford coach Johnny Hill said quarterback Brandon Mack and running back D.K. Buford have more than enough speed and talent to make all the plays to beat his Chargers if OHS don’t play well.
Oxford hosts No. 6 ranked Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic contest Thursday night at 7. In a game that is being sponsored by C Spire Wireless and highlighted on Fox Sports South, Hill is hoping that the only fireworks that go off are before the game and turned in by his team rather than by the speed of Buford and Mack.

Big plays turned in on offense and defense made the difference again for the Oxford Chargers on Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field. A week after defeating Class 6A Grenada at home, the Chargers topped Charleston 21-18 to improve to 2-0 on the year.
Oxford never trailed in the contest as it jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. Charleston, which won last year’s MHSAA Class 3A state title and 15 consecutive games prior to Friday’s setback, made things interesting in the second half before Oxford’s offense, defense and special teams rose up to secure the victory.

Oxford High School quarterback Parker Adamson didn’t get off to an ideal start in Friday’s season opener against Grenada at Bobby Holcomb Field, throwing interceptions on two of his team’s first three possessions with one of them getting returned for a touchdown.
Adamson and his teammates didn’t let the slow start and 12-0 first-period deficit shake them, however, as they rallied to post a 28-22 victory in the battle of Charger lineups. Adamson finished the night passing for 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help his team gain a measure of revenge for last year’s loss at Grenada. (August 20, 2012, Page 1B)

The Chargers may have held the Tigers’ Wing T offense in check the first half of the Homecoming game, but the rarely seen offense definitely made an impact in the second half and in the overtime period of a game the Tigers ended up winning 31-30. (more…) (October 17, 2011, Page 3B)
A 36-yard field goal from Cody Mills as time expired lifted the Oxford Chargers to a 9-6 win over Pontotoc in junior varsity action Tuesday night at Bobby Holcomb Field. In games that are designed to improve the skills of the players who will eventually be full-time members of the varsity, getting the opportunity to kick a game-winning field goal is an added bonus for all involved.
Mills, who had to stay focused after Pontotoc’s coach called a timeout just before he kicked, credited the snap and the hold for him having success. (September 7, 2011, Page 6)
