Pirates suffer first district loss

By Randall Luker

Missed opportunities, miscues and a scrappy Nederland team that never gave up contributed to the Pirates first loss of the season at Pirate Stadium Saturday.

The early afternoon game took a toll on spectators, players and performers with the 90 degree heat and comparable humidity sending a score of students for heat related treatment in nearby ambulances or the fieldhouse.

Vidor won the toss and deferred. The Quirante kick was deep, to the 5, and Nederland ran it out to the 18, where they began their opening drive. A three yard pickup on first was followed by a 13 yard pickup by Kevon Latolus. Facing third and nine, Devon Simmons ran to the 49 and another Nederland first down.

Vidor Pirates … A return to normalcy

By Watson Franks Special to The Vidorian

 

When the football practice began in August, little did anyone know what this year would hold in store for the city of Vidor. People were making plans for the future. Houses were being built. People were working their jobs taking care of their families. Children were preparing to start back to school.

 

Life was good in Vidor, Texas. Neighbors helped neighbors. Churches were busy with activities and praising God. Labor Day weekend was just around the corner. Football season would soon begin. Plans were being made to celebrate on the lake, with a barbque, with family. Life was busy. Things were normal.
