The Oxford Chargers return home for the first time this season, playing host to the Grenada Chargers for homecoming. Kickoff is set for Friday at 7 p.m.

“We’re excited about our home opener and the atmosphere that comes with homecoming,” said Chris Cutcliffe, Oxford head football coach.

Oxford (2-0) rolls into the third week of the season after defeating South Panola 31-14 last Friday.

“It took us a little while to get started against South Panola, but once we settled in I thought we played well in all three phases,” Cutcliffe said. “Being able to score twice on defense was obviously huge.”

Grenada is off to a 1-1 record on the season after falling 32-26 to Winona on the road.

“Grenada is a talented team,” Cutcliffe said. “They’re physical on defense and have a balanced attack on offense with a lot of weapons.”

Oxford stepped into a new classification to 7A and will open region play up in October.

“In this non-region phase of the season, we are hyper-focused on improvement,” Cutcliffe said. “We know it is our job to get better each and every week as we prepare for our region schedule.”
