The varsity basketball Vidor Pirates battled the Nederland Bulldogs to the buzzer Tuesday night, coming up just short of a win in Nederland as the Pirates fell 44-41.

“The kids played hard and executed the game plan very well. Just needed 1 more play to go our way and we would have finished off the comeback,” said Vidor Head Boys Basketball Coach Nate Smith.

“We trailed 42-33 with 2:54 left and ended up down 42-41 with the ball with 30 seconds left with a chance to win so the kids battled back very hard to give us a chance. We just didn’t make the play we needed on the last play.”
