Late rally lifts Rio Hondo past Port Isabel

RIO HONDO — Victoria Vasquez scored 14 points, Alexis Rodriguez had 11 and Victoria Aguilar contributed six as the Rio Hondo Lady Bobcats rallied late in the game to defeat Port Isabel 39-33 Friday evening at the Lady Bobcats gymnasium.

The win puts the Lady Bobcats at 21-9 overall and 7-2 in district along with La Feria, Hidalgo and Zapata for first place in District 32-4A.

“We played pretty well tonight, but PI is a tough team. They’re 2-7 but they’re a real tough 2-7,” said Rio Hondo head coach Robert Jaramillo. “They’ve lost a few games here and there, but by very little. They could easily be up there in the standings.

“We’re hanging in there, toughing things out and getting the wins. They haven’t all been pretty, but we have managed to come out on top.”
