Lady Chargers win 5A playoff opener

Oxford’s MHSAA Class 5A playoff opener against Center Hill followed nearly the same script as most of the Lady Chargers’ matches in the regular season. But Oxford found the back of the net a little more often this time. (January 30, 2014, Page 8)

Williams’ effort keys Lady ‘Dores’ victory

Lafayette girls soccer coach Melinda Scruggs struggled to describe what she had just witnessed following the Lady Commodores’ game against crosstown rival Oxford Saturday morning. (January 20, 2014, Page 7)

Oxford contains New Albany in win

Second-half letdown sinks Lady Chargers

The Oxford Lady Chargers had a wonderful chance Friday evening to open district play 2-0.

OHS looks to re-write history with Ridgeland

The good: It’s the third time since 2006 — and first since 2010 — that the Oxford girls soccer team has made an appearance in the third round of the playoffs.

The bad: For the third consecutive time the Lady Chargers will face perennial soccer power Ridgeland. (January 31, 2012, Page 8)

Earning an amount of revenge for a regular-season loss is nice.

Doing so to advance to the Class 5A North Half finals makes the Lady Chargers’ 2-0 victory over Starkville at Bobby Holcomb Stadium on Saturday even sweeter.

Almost from the opening kickoff, Oxford set the tone in the game, controlling possession and dictating the pace of the game with strong passes to one another. (January 30, 2012, Page 4B)

Oxford teams set to face familiar opponent in SHS

The coaching staffs of the Oxford soccer teams didn’t have to do a lot of additional scouting heading into Saturday’s Class 5A second-round matchup against Starkville.
