Mavericks rally to end Oxford’s season

MADISON – For the second straight year, Oxford’s postseason stay was a short one. Germantown rallied from an early deficit to score a trio of unanswered goals to defeat the Chargers 3-1 in the opening match of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs for both teams Tuesday night, making it back-to-back first-round exits for Oxford. (January 28, 2015, Page 2B)

Lady Chargers playing well at right time

Oxford’s girls soccer team will start the postseason on the road. With the way the Chargers have been playing as of late, that’s perfectly fine with head coach Laura Flint. The Chargers will try to avoid going one-and-done in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs Tuesday when they travel to Madison to take on Division 3-5A champion Germantown. The match will begin at 5:30 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Chargers rout West Point for share of 2-5A title

Not even Oxford’s most productive night of offense could separate the top two teams in Division 2-5A boys soccer standings. The Chargers wrapped up division play with little resistance Friday, finding the back of the net early and often in a 14-0 rout of West Point on Senior Night at Bobby Holcomb Field to secure a share of the division title with Saltillo. (January 18, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

Oxford boys win pair on final day

The Oxford boys soccer team’s patience was tested Saturday. The Chargers were less than 24 hours removed from a 2-2 draw against Olive Branch in their opening match of the Oxford Showcase and found themselves in a scoreless deadlock deep into the second half despite numerous scoring chances against New Hope at FNC Park. But Oxford finally broke through on Tristan Orman’s penalty kick for the match’s only goal, giving the Chargers their first win of the tournament. The Lady Chargers went 1-1-1 over the weekend. (December 21, 2014, Page 4B)
