An offensive mishap nearly cost Oxford its first district win of the season. Instead, the Chargers made the defensive plays they needed in the final seconds and hit some late free throws to pull out a 53-48 victory over West Point Tuesday night at the OHS gymnasium, evening their District 2-5A record at 1-1.

The third time this year the Oxford Lady Chargers flexed their collective muscle against an overmatched West Point girls basketball team on Tuesday. Even without two players, OHS cruised past West Point 79-37 in Game 1 of the 2-5A Tournament at New Hope High on Tuesday.
The Chargers, meanwhile, had to claw and scratch their way to Friday’s championship game by sneaking past pesky Saltillo 62-60. (February 13, 2013, Page 6)
Both Oxford High basketball squads secured a spot in the MHSAA Class 5A Playoffs next week and a spot in the Division 2-5A championship games with wins over Saltillo at the OHS gym Tuesday night.
The similarities to the two teams’ victories stop there though, as the Lady Chargers cruised to an 83-35 win and the Chargers had to fight off a late run by the Tigers to win 62-55. (February 8, 2012, Page 6)
