The Port Isabel Lady Tarpons basketball team led La Feria for most of the game, but came up two points short in the end, 48-46, at La Feria Tuesday night.
Port Isabel led 13-7 at the end of a quarter of play, 29-13 at the half, and 37-36 at the start of the fourth quarter.
With 2:15 to go in the contest La Feria took a 45-41 lead. Sabrina Garza scored the next five points to give the Lady Tarpons a one-point lead, 46-45. P.I. missed a pair of free throws and the Lionettes took the lead back with a pair of free throws with under a minute to go. They made one more with 3.0 seconds on the clock and that was a final, 48-46.
