OXFORD – Oxford varsity football would take full advantage of their powerful run game as they methodically grinded their way for a win in front of their hometown crowd on Friday, Sept. 9.
Whitney Point came to visit the Blackhawks for their home opener that night, as the two teams exchanged blows in the early parts of the game.
“We started off slow out of the gates but we started picking it up. Our guys really stepped up in the absence of people who are injured. The guys really looked for ward to playing at home in front of the crowd,” said Oxford head coach Jeff Newton.
As coach Newton attested, Oxford would surrender the first points when Whitney went up on the board 6-0 early in the first quarter. However, following the early score it was Oxford from their on out.
