#34, Cole Myers, drags down a Bear runner from behind.

It’s been two weeks since the Pirates’ last football game, a onepoint loss to the Montgomery Bears the Pirates had every chance to win.

The Pirates’ seemingly minor mistakes, lining up in the wrong spot, leading with the wrong foot, jumping offsides, missing a kick, not hustling downfield, made the difference in the game. If any one of three or four plays had been executed correctly, the Pirates would be 1-0 going into Friday night’s game versus the Conroe Caney Creek Panthers.

The Pirates’ errors, whether giving up points or failing to capitalize on scoring opportunities made a 28 point difference in the game’s outcome, Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews reckons.

Pirates face Panthers

The Vidor Pirates (0-1) will face the 1-1 Conroe Caney Creek Panthers Friday in their first home game of the season. The occasion will also mark the first game held on the recently installed artificial turf surface.

Both teams will face lot of unknowns when they meet.

“They have a new coach,” said Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews.

CC Panther Head Coach Ned Barrier came to Conroe after three seasons at 2A Wallis Brazos, where he compiled a 16-17 record.

Not having a history with the Pirates, some educated guesses have to be made.

“It’s a mystery what they are going to play against us. We prepared for 3-4 different defensive schemes,” Mathews explained. “That’s what we usually do, and we usually get it right.
