Meeting the fifth place state-ranked Memorial Titans in Pirate Gym Friday, the Vidor Pirates battled the district leaders gamely for four quarters, but the Titans prevailed 60-32.

Vidor had a distinct size disadvantage in the game that saw the Titan’s height and reach advantage put to good use. Many of the Pirates’ shots were blocked by the Titans’ towering over them. An extremely stingy Titan defense stymied the Pirate offense trying to set up a play and many shots were taken under pressure after driving on the basket.

The Pirates managed to keep the game close early with a first quarter score of 16-11. The Titans padded their lead by another five to end the first half with the score 27-17.

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.”
