Preview: Port Isabel vs. Rio Hondo

On Friday Rio Hondo will take on Port Isabel at 7:30 PM. Rio Hondo don't have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy an advantage in the MaxPreps rankings.

Last Friday, Rio Hondo put the finishing touches on their 3rd blowout victory of the season. They put a hurting on Progreso to the tune of 59-14. Senior Daniel Vazquez, who rushed for 202 yards and 3 touchdowns on 14 carries, was a major factor in Rio Hondo's success. If you haven't heard Vazquez's name lately, then you haven't been paying much attention: he has loomed large in their past eight games.

Meanwhile, after some red-hot point totals in their last 3 games, Port Isabel fizzled out. They took a serious blow against Raymondville, falling 0-48. The low total for Port Isabel limited their streak of high-flying scores to three in a row.

Rio Hondo took their game against Port Isabel the last time the two teams met by a conclusive 48-27 score. The rematch might be a little tougher for Rio Hondo since the team won't have home-field advantage. Watch the game and check back on MaxPreps to see if the change in venue makes a difference.
