Port Isabel tames Lions on the road

The Port Isabel Tarpons boys basketball team brought their A game to La Feria and won the district matchup, 56-33, and took the sweep of the Lions for the season.

It was the fourth win in a row for the Tarpons and they are now 6-2 in District 32-4A play with six games remaining on the schedule.

It was a low-scoring first quarter as both teams seemed to have trouble finding the exact location of the basket.  The Tarpons picked it up in the second period and took a nine-point lead into the break.

“The kids played good defense,” first-year head coach Mike Hazelton said afterwards.  “We got shots when we needed to, hustled, went after it.  It’s a road win against a perennially tough team,” he said.
