Chargers take down Wave in district win

February 2, 2015


The Oxford Chargers were in a shooting rhythm, and there was not much the West Point Green Wave could do to stop them.
For the second time this month, Oxford (19-4; 2-2 District 2-5A), which shot 65 percent from the field, routed West Point, 70-44, in District 2-5A play Friday at West Point High School. The Green Wave (13-11) has not won a district game in four attempts this season.

Oxford downs Lady Wave

February 2, 2015


The Oxford Lady Chargers controlled most of the game, but the West Point Lady Wave would not allow Oxford to walk away with an easy win.
Oxford junior Aliyah Herod scored 24 points and pulled down 11 rebounds for a double-double as she led her team to a 62-53 win despite West Point’s late effort Friday at West Point High School. Oxford (16-7) remained perfect through four District 2-5A games, while West Point (12-12) dropped to 2-2 in district play – both losses to Oxford.

Raiders too much for Tri-County

January 20, 2015


FLORA — In a long basketball season, it is good to have contributors outside of the starting five. For the Oak Hill Raiders, they have playmakers in spades throughout their roster.
Oak Hill’s bench scored 22 points, and the Raiders defeated the Tri-County Rebels, 54-46, in MAIS District 2-AA play Saturday afternoon at Tri-County Academy.
“I was proud of my second group,” Oak Hill Head Coach Brian Middleton said. “In a high school game, the bench contributing that many points is a huge number.”
