FERDINAND — For a minute it looked like the Forest Park might be in for another long night of play as the Rangers and Pocket Athletic Conference rival Pike Central Chargers went back and forth on Saturday night. The Chargers made a big run in the third and tied the game on multiple occasions before the Rangers got a grip on the game late and took home a 57-49 victory. But not everyone was happy with how they got there.

"Mid-second quarter it was like our guys just stopped playing," said Rangers (14-8, 4-3) coach David Welp. "I thought our guys didn't have a sense of urgency for a full four quarters. If our guys want to win a sectional, you're going to have to play multiple games for four quarters."

Sophomore guard Drew Howard had 17 points, while senior guard Isaac Uebelhor had 13. Junior forward Ethan Gorby led the Chargers with 20 points.
