Oxford’s first game of its annual Spring Break Tournament at Edwin Moak field came down to a couple swings of the bat Monday. Unfortunately for the Chargers, it was Jackson (Tenn.) Christian that ended up getting the best swings as the Eagles topped OHS 5-3.
Jackson Christian’s Matt Poteete hit a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to break the 3-3 tie and catapult the Eagles to a win in the tournament that continues through Thursday.

His first came in the fourth inning and put the first run on the scoreboard, while his solo shot in the sixth gave the Eagles a 3-1 lead. (March 13, 2012, Page 6)
