Kicking off the season over the weekend, Soroco boys basketball hit the road to compete in the Manila High School Shootout on Friday, Dec. 2 and Saturday, Dec. 3. 

The first game of the tournament for the Rams came against Intermountain Christian with Soroco suffering a 56-33 loss.

The Rams followed that with a matchup against Manila on Saturday, where Soroco struggled to stop the Manila offense and fell 73-23.

Now 0-2 on the year, Soroco will look to make some noise in the Meeker Shootout coming Thursday, Dec. 8, to Saturday, Dec. 10.
