Tarpons overwhelm the Red Ants, 63-0

first_imgBy Constancio Martinez, Jr.Special to the PRESSTarpons and Red Ants lining up for the coin toss during their October 18 game. Photo by Constancio Martinez, Jr.This will be the 34th time the Port Isabel Tarpons and Progreso Red Ants have played each other since 1986. Unfortunate for the Red Ants the Tarpons are 33-0 in those matchups. The Progreso Red Ants stunned the MMA Leathernecks with their 75-0 win last week.  So, the Tarpons stayed focused during their bye week as they weren’t going to overlook Progreso.From the first snap of the ball the Tarpons’ defense put on relentless pressure on the Red Ants quarterback. After holding Progreso to negative seven yards on their initial drive, the Tarpons put on a solid drive spanning 59 yards, unfortunately, they needed 60 as they turned the ball over on downs at the Red Ants 1-yard line.With backs against the wall Progreso went another 3-and-out. On the ensuing drive, Tarpons’ running back Brayan Medina took a shovel pass and hit the outside for a 33-yard touchdown. A successful extra point try by kicker Angel Fernandez put the Tarpons up 7-0 in the 1st quarter. The Tarpons caught the Red Ants by surprise as they recovered an onside kick by Fernandez. On the next play, Medina broke free for a 32-yard gain, but limped off the field with some sort of leg injury. Junior running back Adrian Nino subbed in for Medina and picked up where Medina left off. Nino got the Tarpons down to Progreso’s 1-yard line where quarterback Joey Krieghbaum scored on a quarterback sneak. A successful kick put the Tarpons up 14-0 with 6:00 left in the 1st quarter. On the ensuing Progreso drive, QB Elian Rodriguez tested the Tarpons’ secondary on a long pass, but cornerback Will Camacho out jumped the Red Ant’s receiver for interception. Playing on both sides of the ball, Camacho had another big play, but this time as a receiver as he caught a 33-yard pass from Krieghbaum. Three plays later Krieghbaum scored on another quarterback sneak, putting the Tarpons up 21-0 still in the 1st quarter. Facing a 3rd and 12, Progreso’s QB completed a 30-yard pass play marking the first time he got the better of PI’s secondary. On the next play, Tarpon’s defensive end, Edgar Orduna sniffed out a reverse and tackled the runner for a 10-yard loss. Unable to recover from the setback the Red Ants punted. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for the Tarpons though. Forced to punt, the ball seemed to hit the back of a Tarpon blocker and the Red Ants ended up with great field position. On the ensuing play, Progreso’s QB threw the ball to a streaking receiver, but underthrew it as Port Isabel’s cornerback, Gilbert Medina, came up with the interception ending Progreso’s scoring threat.Tarpons and Red Ants lining up before the snap during their October 18 game. Photo by Constancio Martinez, Jr.The Tarpons offense regrouped and went on 9-play, 76-yard scoring drive capped by a 25-yard pass play to receiver Will Camacho.  A successful kick put the Tarpons up 28-0 in the 2nd quarter. Progresso’s run game had virtually no success as Progreso leaned more and more on its passing game. After a couple of passes including a 33-yard pass play, the Red Ants reached the Tarpon’s 44-yard line. On the next play, the Tarpon’s secondary came up big again as Safety Jake Pinkerton jumped in front of the receiver for the interception. With the second quarter winding down, QB Krieghbaum found receiver, Angel Nino on a crossing route for a 41-yard pass play. A successful kick put the Tarpons up 35-0. The Red Ants got a 20-yard kickoff return, but salty Tarpon defense forced a fumble on the next play. Starting at Progreso’s 35-yard line Krieghbaum connected with receiver Michael Perez who eluded six would-be tacklers for a 35-yard touchdown pass play. A successful kick made it 42-0 Tarpons. After gaining only two yards on its next drive, Progreso was forced to punt again. Port Isabel continued to work on its passing game as Krieghbaum found a streaking Camacho for a 62-yard touchdown. The Tarpons headed to the locker room with 49-0 lead. Tarpon cheerleaders holding a Halloween-themed banner, just before the Tarpons broke out onto the field during their October 18 game. Photo by Constancio Martinez, Jr.As the second half opened, Progreso went for an onside kick, but the Tarpons recovered the ball. Two plays later, Adrian Nino left the defenders in the dust as he ran for 42 yards to paydirt. A successful kick put the Tarpons up 56-0, with 9:35 in the 3rd quarter.  Progreso was able to move the ball a little more on the backups in the second half, but still failed to score on the Tarpons’ defense. Meanwhile, the Tarpons picked up one last score as sophomore Jayden Lopez broke loose for a 35-yard touchdown run for the final score of 63-0.In their dominating performance, the Tarpons “Tidal Wave Offense” accumulated 522 total yards while the “Seawall Defense” forced five turnovers. The (3-4) Tarpons will have a much tougher matchup next week as they face the (6-1) Raymondville Bearkats at Tarpon Stadium. The Tarpons will need to bring the same tenacity next week to have a shot at the upset.  Share RelatedTarpons Fall to Bearkats, 63-7By Constancio Martinez, Jr. Special to the PRESS The Port Isabel Tarpons and Raymondville Bearkats met this past Friday night with both teams’ sights on the district title.

Need everyone be reminded of the Olympics and the non-swift jersey wearing Swedes. “Enhancement” or not, better teams still win.I also don’t like the idea of shutting down the third jersey program (but at least that says it WILL be back.) I could care less if a team has 2, 3 or 30 jerseys. Hell, I like variety.

But this swift jersey thing really has me terrified. I suppose if you look at a NFL lineman or receiver now compared to 10 years ago you’d see almost as much of a difference, but that trend happened gradually, and still wouldn’t look as silly as it will on the ice. These uniforms are SUPPOSED to be baggy. And there isn’t a fan alive that would look good in one of those form-fitting things. I could live with this swift jersey thing if they did one thing–Had each team get their own designers for the jerseys. Instead they are all going to look the same because it is cheaper and easier.And sorry, but one of the things hockey has going for it is the colorful jerseys that people like to buy. When the swift jerseys come out, a lot of people won’t want them–particularly those carrying a few extra pounds. All Activity This topic is now closed to further replies.

They can only sell so many of the same old Canadiens, Blackhawks, etc jerseys. Sure they make money off the teams who have newer 3rds, but a league rehaul would really bring in the cash.

So if you’re a Ducks or Sabres fan, you might find yourself buying a new jersey in ’06, a new jersey in ’07, and a new third jersey in ’08. Now I see what Reebok’s up to… 553 posts Members 1 Share this post Location:New Jersey 542 0 542 Posted August 31, 2006 So I found this on the SabresFans message board, sounds like he found it somewhere on the Blackhawks website:Saw this posted somewhere: (blackhawks)Thanks for input regarding our third jersey. We will be staying with our current third jersey for the 2006-07 season. The NHL has notified the teams that they will suspend the third jersey program for the 2007-08 season. We have discussed several options for the our third jersey when the NHL resumes the third jersey program for the 2008-09 season, and have not yet finalized our strategy. Once again, thanks for your input and we look forward to seeing you at the United Center this season.Sounds to me like this will be the last year for regular, old school hockey jerseys. It could be the only reason why they would get rid of the 3rd jerseys, to go to the Reebok Swift Jersesy style.Sad news for hockey purists, but i guess we’ll wait and see…This also brings into question the vintage program – – The Sabres are gonna wear the vintage as their third, but all of buffalo will be pissed if they go only with the slug.And finally, the only upside: Could they be going back to White at home, colors on the road? 2 Location:Waxahachie, Texas Link to post Share on other sites 7 542 I’d like to chime in with my thoughts on these swift jerseys for a second.First off … the thought that they will look futuristic and spandexy i don’t think is accurate. If anything … i believe that seeing the players on the ice in these things will only harken back to a more traditional “Jacques Plante” era. And personally, i love that idea … this will actually have a fairly large impact on the sport i think … by widening the gap between speed/skill players and big/tough players. the middle ground will not be as prevelant … just my thought on that.As for the ‘template’ argument … i don’t think this will even be a consideration. I think the NHL knows all too well that their fans are not interested in losing their tradition … the jerseys will all remain exactly the same .. and each team will have liberty to design their jersey as they see fit … some might redesign their stuff though to consider the fact that their ‘canvas’ has changed in form, so they may have new designs to better compliment that. Traditional teams will not be making silly changes at all though.Lastly .. the tight fitting jerseys will most likely be tight fitting on players wearing pads … not on your average human wearing skin. they won’t be as poncho-esque as jerseys now … but they will not be form fitting or spandex.This is all my own speculation, and I have really no hands on evidence to prove or disprove any of this .. so take it as you will … just my thoughts.
