The Port Isabel High Lady Tarpons got the best of La Grulla, 66-36, in a key District 32-4A basketball game Tuesday night in Tarpon Gym.

With the win Port Isabel improves to 7-5 in district play and remains in contention for the fourth playoff spot in the district.

Except for a 2-2 tie early in the first quarter, the Lady Tarpons led all the way and were never threatened after reeling off 11 unanswered points to go up 13-2 inside the four-minute mark of the opening quarter.

It was 18-8, PI, at the end of the first quarter, 39-12 at the half and 47-24 at the end of three quarters. Port Isabel took its biggest lead — 34 points — on a bucket by Serena Brown with a little over two minutes to play in the game, and the score was 63-29 at that point.
