With the end of the regular season rapidly approaching, all three area football teams are jostling for region and post-season positioning tonight.
Water Valley probably headlines the area’s action with a road test at Aberdeen, while Oxford (8-0 overall, 4-0 Region 1-5A) hosts 1-5A foe Saltillo and Lafayette welcomes 2-4A rival Senatobia to William L. Buford Stadium.
All three games are set for 7 p.m. kickoffs. Oxford’s game can be heard on 95.5 FM, while Water Valley’s will be broadcast on 105.5 FM and Lafayette’s on 93.7 FM. (October 19, 2012, Page 6A)

Both Oxford High basketball squads secured a spot in the MHSAA Class 5A Playoffs next week and a spot in the Division 2-5A championship games with wins over Saltillo at the OHS gym Tuesday night.
The similarities to the two teams’ victories stop there though, as the Lady Chargers cruised to an 83-35 win and the Chargers had to fight off a late run by the Tigers to win 62-55. (February 8, 2012, Page 6)
Oxford won three of four games with Lafayette in middle school basketball action Thursday night in the LMS gym. (December 9, 2011, Page 7A)
Led by two goals from Hayden Stewart and two from Edward Terry, the Oxford Chargers defeated Tupelo 4-0 on Thursday night. The win was very special in that coach Jamie Perkins said it was his biggest win since becoming the team’s head coach. Tupelo defeated Oxford 10-0 three years ago and Perkins said his team was very motivated to earn a victory over the Golden Wave. Oxford (4-1-3 overall) scored its first goal in the first minute of the game and then kept the pressure on in the second half by scoring three goals. Oxford will return to action Thursda at New Albany. Four games highlight the slate, starting with a junior varsity girls game. (December 9, 2011, Page 7A)
the books the Oxford Chargers must now turn their attention to a regional rival in the Senatobia Warriors.
The Warriors (3-0), fresh off of a lopsided 32-0 victory at Independence, always give Oxford a hard-fought game and Friday’s game at 7:30 p.m. should be no exception. (September 8, 2011, Page 6)
