The Freshman Vidor Pirates hosted the Lumberton Raiders Thursday at Pirate Stadium for a football matchip that saw a scoreless first quarter as each team looked for an opportunity to score.

It wasn’t until 5:02 in the 2nd quarter the Lumberton Raiders drew first blood following a Vidor fumble on the Raider 44. Driving down to the Pirate five yard line, the Raider QB scored on a keeper. The PAT failed and the score was 6-0 in the visitors’ favor.

The Raiders tried an onside kick which was covered by the Pirates’ Ethan Sanchez on the Vidor 42. The Pirates drove to the Raider 34, but a sack back to the 38 led to the ball going over with less than 25 seconds left in the half and the Raiders let the clock run.

Pirates prepare for 2020 in 4A class

The Vidor Pirates are facing all the usual challenges as they prepare for the 2020 football season, getting into playing shape, learning and executing plays and teamwork, but this year, new 4A opponents, plus Covid-19 restrictions are adding additional challenges for coaches and players both.

Head Coach Jeff Mathews said he, his staff, and players are dealing with mandates from a regular alphabet soup of agencies. “We are following TEA, UIL and CDC guidelines,” he said. That’s the Texas Education Agency, University Interscholastic League and the US Centers for Disease Control for those not up on government agency acronyms.

In addition to pads and helmets, protective gear now includes facemasks and social distancing, Mathews said.
