Pirate defenders Jordan Smith, #55, Colby Smith, #43 and #20 Josh Wright team up to bring down a Bear ball carrier.

Missed opportunities and miscues spelled defeat for the Vidor Pirates in the final seconds of Thursday night’s season opener in Montgomery.

The Pirates and Bears traded scores and the lead several times before the Bears sealed the deal with a touchdown pass to the end zone to take the lead and the game 33-32 with two seconds remaining on the clock.

Mathews said the Pirates fought back and scored after the first two Bear scores, then before the half, the Bears scored again on a 99-yard kick return to go up 21-20.
