Led by two goals from Hayden Stewart and two from Edward Terry, the Oxford Chargers defeated Tupelo 4-0 on Thursday night. The win was very special in that coach Jamie Perkins said it was his biggest win since becoming the team’s head coach. Tupelo defeated Oxford 10-0 three years ago and Perkins said his team was very motivated to earn a victory over the Golden Wave. Oxford (4-1-3 overall) scored its first goal in the first minute of the game and then kept the pressure on in the second half by scoring three goals. Oxford will return to action Thursda at New Albany. Four games highlight the slate, starting with a junior varsity girls game. (December 9, 2011, Page 7A)
