The Oxford Chargers’ season was put to rest earlier than head coach Johnny Hill would have liked Friday night with a 20-17 heartbreaking loss to 1-5A foe Clarksdale.

Oxford’s quest to secure a spot in the upcoming Class 5A playoffs was dealt a setback Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field. Despite an inspired effort, one coach Johnny Hill said would have won games at New Hope and against Hernando at home, the Chargers lost 31-21 to West Point. Now the Chargers have to defeat Clarksdale in the regular season finale on Friday at home to even have a chance of making the postseason. (October 31, 2011, Page 3B)
The mission is simple the rest of the season for the Oxford Chargers: Win or miss the Class 5A playoffs. Any coach will tell you that each week is a must win. Losing is never the first option, but losses to non-region teams ultimately don’t hurt a team’s chances of making the playoffs.

A win is what the Oxford Chargers needed to garner last Friday night at Charleston. After losing a tough opener to Grenada on the road, the Chargers could ill afford another setback heading into this week’s Crosstown Classic at Lafayette.
Thanks to an improved effort across the board, and specifically the running of senior Mont Dean, the Chargers were able to defeat Charleston 38-25 to earn that coveted first victory. (more…) (August 30, 2011, Page 8)
