The frustrating season for Joppa’s Rangers continued this weekend as they lost a heartbreaker on Friday night against the Shawnee Indians and then had to host the Pharaohs from Egyptian for homecoming on Saturday.

Friday night’s game with Shawnee went into overtime before a put-back with 8 seconds left gave the Indians the 82-81 win.

Joppa fell behind by 13 at the first horn but got back in the game and actually led by three going into the final period.
