Oxford, Laurel ready to air it out for title

Fans attending the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game better find a comfortable seat inside Mississippi State’s Davis Wade Stadium. They could be there a while.

CLARKSDALE — The execution was spotty throughout, but Oxford did enough Friday night to ensure itself of playing beyond the regular season. The Chargers got a pair of early touchdowns against Clarksdale and were never seriously threatened by the Wildcats, clinching a spot in next month’s MHSAA Class 5A playoffs with a 17-0 victory at Crumpton Field. (October 26, 2014, Page 5B)
