Oxford ended the regular season on a high with two impressive wins over Tupelo and Amory. The Chargers enter their MHSAA Class 5A playoff series against Starkville coming off a 2-0 win over Tupelo Friday and a 6-3 win over Amory in eight innings on Saturday afternoon. The two wins improved the Chargers to 22-6 overall.
Leave it to the Lafayette Commodores to win a dramatic defensive struggle in Eric Robertson’s head coaching debut. Sparked by an early interception returned for a touchdown by linebacker Chequille Williams, the Commodores scratched and clawed their way to an 8-3 win at William L. Buford Stadium on Friday. It was the 33rd straight win for LHS and the first for Robertson, who served the team the previous seven seasons as defensive coordinator. (more…) (August 20, 2012, Page 1B)
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)
