The 2017 football season began with a loss for Port Isabel as the Lobos of Brownsville Lopez took the measure of the Tarpons with a 35-13 win at Tarpon Stadium Friday night.
The loss came in Coach Jaime Infante’s debut as the Tarpon head man on a near perfect night for football.
Lopez took the lead on a 10-yard touchdown pass and led 7-0 with 4:25 to go in the first quarter. Port Isabel tied the score on an 85-yard kickoff return but on their next possession the Lobos went ahead for good when Christian Gamez scored from 11 yards out, and the halftime score was 14-7.
