Senior Cassie Edgemon went 4 for 5 with 3 RBIís and 2 runs scored, freshman Cherilyn Banas scored 2 runs, and junior Jessica Palumbo went 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.

Oxford then defeated Utica Ford II 7-4. Junior Brooke Harris got the win on the mound and recorded 4 strikeouts. Junior Autumn Cervantez went 2 for 4 and Cassie Edgemon 2 for 3 and both had an RBI and a run scored.
