Oxford football

Area squads set to face region rivals

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)

    WV’s Gordon runs away with POW honor

    Water Valley senior Jeoffrey Gordon has been banged up for most of the season. Friday, the Blue Devil running back showed what he can do when he gets a chance to crack the starting lineup at close to full health.

    In Water Valley’s 33-13 victory at Nettleton, Gordon racked up 205 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries. (October 16, 2012, Page 6)

      D shines again for undefeated OHS

      HERNANDO — It’s hard not to believe that members of the Hernando Tigers offense weren’t a little sore Saturday morning after tangling with Oxford’s defensive unit.

      Hernando’s goal of shortening the game with its Wing T offense only accomplished fewer shots on ball carriers in the seventh-ranked Chargers’ 31-0 win Friday night at Tiger Stadium. (more…) (October 15, 2012, Page 3B)

          Oxford LB Adams earns POW honor

          Oxford’s success on defense this season can be attributed to the play of many standout players. Against Lake Cormorant last Friday specifically, senior Jarquis Adams recorded nine tackles, three tackles for a loss and one sack in the Chargers’ 26-0 win. It was the second time this year the ninth-ranked Chargers have earned a shutout and absolutely stoned an opponent from a yardage standpoint. (Lake Cormorant had negative 11 yards at the half). Adams’ play earned him this week’s Player of the Week honors, his first this season. (October 9, 2012, Page 6)

            Return of the Mack: LHS QB earns another POW honor

            It’s beginning to become a bit of a broken record, but Lafayette is positively OK with that.

            During Friday’s 28-13 win at Lewisburg, LHS quarterback Brandon Mack did what has become expected of the super senior, rushing for 126 yards, passing for 115 and accounting for three touchdowns, all the while playing full-time on defense and special teams. (October 2, 2012, Page 7)

              Defense seals win for Chargers

              A win’s a win no matter how pretty it is.

              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)

                Hill, Chargers look to keep momentum going

                Friday night’s game at Bobby Holcomb Field will feature two Region 1-5A competitors trending in different directions.

                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.

                  Led by another great defensive effort, the Oxford seventh-grade Chargers defeated South Panola 12-0 in Batesville Tuesday night. Oxford’s eighth graders also posted a 34-0 win over Batesville to improve to 5-0 on the year.  (more…) (September 26, 2012, Page 7)

                    Bailey tackles Jaguars to earn POW honor

                    The Blue Devils took care of business Friday, routing the visiting J.Z. George Jaguars 61-6.

                    Leading Water Valley’s defensive unit was senior Q. Bailey, who racked up 15 tackles in the first half before being pulled for reserves.

                    Bailey’s 15 tackles in just two quarters was a rare feat that veteran defensive coordinator Richard Russo has never seen. (September 25, 2012, Page 7)
