WEST POINT — The Oxford Chargers got off to an uncharacteristically bad start in their Region 1-5A opener against West Point, falling behind 22-8 at one point. They were able to climb out of the hole, though, scoring 35 unanswered points to defeat the Green Wave 43-22 at McCallister Field on Friday night. (September 28, 2014, Page 4B)

Oxford D shows its mettle in shutout

Piling up 363 total yards and getting a monster game from sophomore running back Kenzie Phillips (208 yards and three touchdowns), Oxford’s offense continued doing what it’s been doing all year in the Chargers’ 30-0 win over rival Lafayette in the annual Crosstown Classic Friday night.

With Phillips and senior Jarius Barnes making up a formidable rushing attack, a rising sophomore at quarterback in Jack Abraham and one of the best receivers around in Ole Miss commit D.K. Metcalf, the Chargers’ offense has put up at least 30 points in every game it’s played so far.

But just in case anybody forgot about the Oxford defense, the unit proved it’s alive and well with its most dominant performance to this point against the Commodores. (September 16, 2013, Page 4B)

Return of the Mack: LHS QB earns another POW honor

It’s beginning to become a bit of a broken record, but Lafayette is positively OK with that.

During Friday’s 28-13 win at Lewisburg, LHS quarterback Brandon Mack did what has become expected of the super senior, rushing for 126 yards, passing for 115 and accounting for three touchdowns, all the while playing full-time on defense and special teams. (October 2, 2012, Page 7)

Defense seals win for Chargers

A win’s a win no matter how pretty it is.

That was Oxford coach Johnny Hill’s thoughts after his team defeated Region 1-5A rival New Hope 29-17 at Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday night.

Plagued by missed assignments and poor execution most of the night, the Chargers (6-0 overall, 2-0 in region play) put some distance between themselves and the Trojans thanks to big plays on defense late in the game. (more…) (October 1, 2012, Page 3B)

Oxford’s two middle school football teams lost two close game to South Panola Tuesday. The seventh-grade lost 12-8 after leading a sizable portion of the game, while the eighth-grade fell 8-0 in the nightcap.
