Banged up Pirates look to win out season

By Randall Luker

 

“We’re looking to go 5-5, that’s our goal,” Jeff Mathews said Monday as he reported at least eight starters were bruised, banged up, or lost for the season. To reach that goal, Mathews’ team will have to win their last two games-at Baytown Lee Friday and at home November 9 against the Dayton Broncos.

 

In order to accomplish that goal, Mathews has reached down to the junior varsity to bring up several players to fill the holes created by injury.

 

Mathews said last week against Nederland, he only had one experienced cornerback remaining and had to pull RB Zach Dahlenburg from offense to play corner, a position he was unfamiliar with.

Out of playoff picture, Pirates now in spoiler role

By Randall Luker

With four district losses and only three games to play, the Vidor Pirates are out of the 2018 playoff picture, but they can still play the role of spoiler as they face the undefeated Nederland Bulldogs Friday in Pirate Stadium.

The Pirates began the year 3-0 and have given their district opponents all they could handle with most games coming down to the final minutes before the winning team was determined. Vidor’s losses have come against the undefeated in district Port Neches Groves Indians, 3-1 Santa Fe Indians, 3-1 Barbers Hill Eagles, and the 2-2 Crosby Cougars, a game which went into triple overtime. A somewhat banged up Pirate team hopes to hang an “L” on the Bulldogs this Friday.
