Tarpons beat Red Ants


The Port Isabel Tar­pons took the bus to Pro­greso last Friday and re­turned with their second district win in as many games. They topped the Red Ants, 69-41, and in so doing moved into a first-place tie in District 32-3A with a 2-0 record.

“We came out a little rusty in the first quarter,” Head Coach Al Senteno reported by telephone on Saturday. “We played pretty good defense.”

Victor “Bucky” Rivera had his best night as a Tarpon, as he scored 28 points (two 3-pointers) to lead the way for Port Isa­bel. “Most of his points came in the paint,” Sen­teno said. “He’s got that little hook shot.” Hector Guevara had 10 points (one 3-pointer), and Jim­my Puentes and Alan Bar­rera each scored seven.
