Visiting Oxon Hill overcame mistakes, injuries, cold weather and an eight-point deficit to defeat High Point, 20-14, last night and clinch the school's second straight Prince George's AA League title.

The win assures the Clippers (9-1) of home-field advantage in the first round of the Class AA state playoffs.

"They {High Point} were a lot tougher than I had anticipated," said an obviously relieved Oxon Hill Coach Mike Pearson.

The game was marred by numerous turnovers, penalties and injuries on both sides. The most serious injury was to Oxon Hill receiver Cecil Brown, who was struck in the small of the back while catching a key pass on a pivotal third-period drive.

Brown was taken by ambulance to Prince George's General Hospital.

Early in the third period, High Point appeared to derail Oxon Hill's AA League title quest. When Don Johnson ran 34 yards for a score, the Eagles led, 14-6. But the touchdown appeared to serve as a wake-up call for Oxon Hill.

The Clippers responded with a 13-play drive that ultimately led to the tying score, when Darren Huckaby scored from three yards out. Todd Mizukawa's keeper on the conversion tied the score.

Held in check by the Oxon Hill defense, High Point punted from deep in its own end. The Clippers marched in for the tying score when Kenny Ford scored from eight yards out with about five minutes to play.

At the outset, neither team was able to squeeze a drive in between turnovers. There were three turnovers in the first three minutes, two by Oxon Hill. When the teams finally settled down, High Point struck first, on a 42-yard touchdown pass from Donald Moyer to Claude Hill midway through the opening period.Oxon Hill (9-1) 0 6 8 6 20 High Point (5-5) 7 0 7 0 14
