Led by a defensive unit that has only allowed one touchdown all season, the Oxford Chargers’ ninth-grade football team defeated Senatobia 28-0 Tuesday night.

Abraham finished the game 11-for-16 for 171 yards, while Kenzie Phillips scored twice on runs of 2 and 56 yards.

Michael McGee added the 2-point conversion for the difference in the contest. K.T. McCollins was credited with adding great run support from his cornerback spot, D.K.

Oxford’s Terry Johnson wins state lifting crown

A strong finish in deadlift helped Oxford’s Terry Johnson cap a successful powerlifting career with an individual state championship on Saturday in the MHSAA’s Class 5A meet.
