VHS Girls’ basketball got underway Saturday with a home scrimmage against Orangefield and both boys and girls will scrimmage Bridge City this Saturday, November 4, with the boys at home and the girls away.

 

The junior varsity Lady Pirates outscored the Lady Bobcats 39- 13 in their scrimmage while the varsity Lady Pirates opened with a three-pointer, went cold, with the Lady Bobcats holding a 20-7 advantage at the half. Better shooting and rebounding in the second half cut the Lady Pirates’ deficit to 43-25 at game’s end.

Pirates hope to pluck Ganders for Homecoming

By Randall Luker

 

It’s a playoff game. We have to win.” That’s how Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews described this Friday’s Homecoming game versus the Baytown Lee Ganders. Even though it’s a regular season game, the Pirates must win to preserve their playoff berth against Crosby. Of course, several other teams must either win, or lose, to knock the Pirates out, and Vidor could conceivably fail to continue on to post season play with losses to Lee and Port Arthur Memorial. A win against both would knock Nederland out of the playoff hunt and pave the way for a Central appearance.

The Vidor Pirates rolled over the winless Livingston Lions Friday at Livingston 58-14. Vidor took the opening kickoff took seven plays to march 70 yards for their first score, a William Fawcett three yard keeper to make it 6-0 Pirates. The PAT was no good with 9:10 left in the first quarter.

 

The Pirate defense denied the Lions, who lost five yards on their first possession and went three and out. Returning Livingston’s punt to the 45, on Vidor’s first down play, Hogan Stogner broke free on a 55 yard ramble into the end zone with 7:44 showing on the clock.

By Randall Luker

Indians win streak continues with 42-14 win over Pirates

By Randall Luker

“They played better in every phase of the game. They outperformed, out played and out coached us,” Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews said following Vidor’s second district loss of the season, a disappointing 42-14 thrashing at the hands of the Port Neches-Groves Indians.

“They are a good team,” Mathews said, “but I think we are a better team than what we showed.”

Pirates face tough test at home against district leading Indians

 By Randall Luker The Vidorian

 

Way back before Harvey, or the first snap of the season even, Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews predicted, in no particular order, that Port Arthur Memorial and Port Neches Groves would be number one and two in District 22-5A, and as it turns out, he hit the nail on the head.

 

The Indians and Titans battled it out in a slugfest last Friday with the Indians eventually coming out on top 44-36 at The Reservation. With the win, Port Neches-Groves at 5-0, 4-0 is at the top of the 22-5A heap, with PAM 4-1, 4-1 in second. Vidor, at 3-1, 3-1 and Nederland, 3-2, 4-2 round out the top four. To beat the Indians, Vidor is going to have to eliminate the drive killing mental errors which cost them the Nederland game, and find a way to stop two of the district’s most potent offensive players in QB Roschon Johnson and WR Preston Riggs. Riggs has scored 69 points for the Indians and Johnson, 62.

Fast and furious fourth quarter seals Pirate victory over Raiders

By Randall Luk

 

After a slow start, the Vidor Pirates notched another district win with a 40-21 victory at Lumberton.

 

After being stopped early, the Pirates’ offense drew first blood at 5:50 in the first when Skylar Leckelt broke through the Raider defense and outdistanced his pursuers for a 64 yard touchdown run. The Quirante kick put the Pirates up 7-0.

 

Both teams traded punts on their next possessions. Lumberton picked up a first on a 14 yard completion and then 7 yards on a run, but a 15 yard sack killed their drive and they had to punt to the Pirates, who got the ball on the 5 yard line.

Vidor JV defeats Lumberton

By Watson Franks

 

This past Thursday night, the Vidor JV hosted the Lumberton Raiders and came away with another impressive victory. The final score was 40-21, but could have been even higher. The Pirates controlled both sides of the ball from the opening minutes. The Defense was team tackling and giving full coverage on every receiver. The Lumberton offense was confused throughout the game. Congrats to a great job Defense!

 

The Vidor offense was led by Quarterback JC Marshall. He looked good under center and made one good decision after another. The star of the game was running back Sequist. He seemed unstoppable throughout the evening with scores of 60, 58, 40 and 30.

Pirates “have a plan” to restrain Raiders

Early this week, when Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews was faced with the possibility of 4-5 starters not being available for Friday’s district game against the Lumberton Raiders, Mathews said the coaching staff had carefully watched game films and come up with a plan to compensate.

Lack of depth isn’t a new problem for the Pirates though. Over the last two weeks, several junior varsity players have been brought up to play on the varsity level when a number of varsity starters haven’t been able to answer the bell due to injuries.
