The Port Isabel Tarpons boys hoops squad stayed on the winning track this week as they won their second straight district basketball game, 48-43, over the Zapata Hawks Tuesday night in Tarpon Gym.
With the win the Tarpons improve to 4-1 in District 32-4A games and remain in second place in the standings. It was their 20th win overall, against only five losses.
The Tarpons led 17-9 at the end of a quarter of play, 29-21 at the half, and 36-32 at the start of the fourth quarter.
Port Isabel led by as many as nine points in the fourth period. Dennis Lozano got a two-point basket with under two minutes to go to put P.I. up 48-39, and that was the last score for the Tarpons.
