There’s a saying in sports: “Never underestimate the heart of a champion.” The Port Isabel Tarpons showed championship heart last Friday night as they defeated the Bloodhounds of St. Joseph’s Academy, 33-27, at Canales Field in Brownsville.
It was the second week in a row, in their final non-district game, that the Tarpons prevailed in a battle of unbeaten teams. It was their fifth win in as many games and Port Isabel starts 5-0 for the first time since 2013.
Also for the second straight week the Tarpons broke several long touchdown runs as they again had their rushing game in high gear.
