OXFORD – Mike Chrystie helped Oxford win a lot of games as a player. Now he has his first win coaching his alma mater.
The Blackhawks scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull away from Thomas A. Edison, 22-6 Saturday night.
Other than one drive and a long pass play that led to the Trojans' only points, Oxford was indomitable on the defensive side registering seven sacks, several tackles for losses, and a defensive safety. "I think people will see this game and think we're a defensive team," Chrystie said. "That's kind of weird for me."
Oxford looked like an offensive juggernaut moving down the field and scoring on Scott Shackelton's four-yard run the opening possession of the game. After that, mistakes, turnovers, penalties, and Edison's stingier defense kept Oxford from mustering any consistency. "After we moved down the field and scored so easily, I think the players must have thought it would be that easy all game," Chrystie said.
