Oxford didn’t miss a beat without its quarterback Friday night. Backup Ben Bianco threw for a pair of scores in place of a hobbled Jack Abraham, Kenzie Phillips ran for a season-high 181 yards and four touchdowns, and the Chargers blew past Saltillo, 49-16, at Bobby Holcomb Field to stay unbeaten in Region 1-5A play.

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)
The Little Egg Bowl Trophy is going back to Starkville. The high school version of the state’s annual football rivalry took center stage at Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday night, but No. 3 Starkville quickly turned No. 2 Oxford’s home opener into a one-sided affair. The Yellowjackets (2-0) forced turnovers on Oxford’s first two possessions, turned them into 10 points and never let up, avenging last year’s 35-24 loss to the Chargers (1-1) with a 52-29 victory.

As lethargic as Lafayette’s offense had been, the Commodores still had one final shot. But they never got it off. (December 23, 2013, Page 6)
Oxford’s 2005 team has company.
Quarterback Jack Abraham and running back Kenzie Phillips each accounted for two touchdowns, K.T. McCollins’ interception return for a score highlighted a stingy defensive effort, and the third-ranked Chargers put a bow on a perfect season with a 45-17 victory over Lake Cormorant Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

If Oxford isn’t prepared to make a deep run in the MHSAA Class 5A state basketball tournament this season, the Chargers may never be ready. (November 8, 2013, Page 6A)
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)
