Tarpons Win in OT at Santa Maria, 46-45


The Port Isabel Tarpons overcame an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit at Santa Maria Tuesday night and took the win in overtime, 46-45.

Trailing by two with sec­onds to go in regulation the Tarpons went for the win. “Kenny Herrera tried a 3-point shot, missed, and followed his own shot for the bucket and the tie, and it was on to overtime,” head P.I. coach Al Senteno re­ported by telephone Thurs­day morning. The decisive play came with less than half a minute to go in the extra period. Roger Villareal stole the ball and drove in for the winning basket on a lay-up with 18 seconds on the clock.
