Tarpons Fall to Grulla, 62-54

Special to the PRESS

The Port Isabel Tarpons basketball squad fought hard against the visiting Gators of Grulla but were outscored in the end, 62-54. It was the second district game for both teams at Tarpon Gym Tuesday night.

The Tarpons led early, 8-7, and again, 20-17 just before halftime.  Grulla outscored the home team, 25-9, in the third quarter to take a 44-29 lead going into the final quarter of play.  The Tarpons pulled within six at 60-54 with under a minute to play,  but that was as close as they got.  The Gators hung on and that was a final, 62-54.
