That was Oxford coach Johnny Hill’s thoughts after his team defeated Region 1-5A rival New Hope 29-17 at Bobby Holcomb Field on Friday night.
Plagued by missed assignments and poor execution most of the night, the Chargers (6-0 overall, 2-0 in region play) put some distance between themselves and the Trojans thanks to big plays on defense late in the game. (more…) (October 1, 2012, Page 3B)
Oxford is coming off of a convincing 40-27 victory in which reserves and the ninth-grade squad played the final few minutes at Center Hill, while the visiting New Hope Trojans travel to Oxford looking to bounce back after a disappointing 42-22 loss to Saltillo. (more…) (September 27, 2012, Page 6)
NEW HOPE — It was good to be an Oxford Charger or a family member of a Charger midway through Friday night’s Division 2-5A baseball game with New Hope. With the Chargers up 7-3 in the top of the fourth inning following a towering three-run home run by Parker Adamson, everything felt good for the Chargers in the dugout.

The difference between winning and losing for the Oxford Chargers on Tuesday night in their game with New Hope at Edwin Moak Field boiled down to a few small mistakes made in a very close contest of evenly matched teams. (more…) (March 21, 2012, Page 7)
A setback at home is not how Oxford Charger coach Drew Tyler wanted to start the Region 1-5A schedule. The Chargers’ first loss in the OHS gym unfortunately came against their most important opponent to date in New Hope.
Despite a second-half surge that saw the Chargers get to within two points twice in the final 1:15, the Trojans were able to hang on and defeat OHS 54-50. (January 9, 2012, Page 6)

Oxford High football coach Johnny Hill couldn’t find too many things to be displeased with in his team’s Region 1-5A opener.

Bittersweet was the only way to describe the feeling Oxford coach Chris Baughman had following Tuesday night’s Region 2-5A finale against West Point at Edwin Moak Field. For the second time in less than a week, the Chargers lost a region game on their home field by making errors and not executing like they had most of the season.
The end result was a 10-7 setback to the Green Wave, a team they beat two other times this year, and a final mark of 5-4 in the region.
Despite the loss, there was one positive gained for the loss, OHS still secured the region regular season title and the coveted No. 1 seed in the upcoming Class 5A playoffs thanks to New Hope’s 16-2 loss to Saltillo. Oxford (13-9 overall) will be idle this weekend in the playoffs because of the bye, but is still searching for a way to fully break out of the mini funk that has set in the final few games.
