Pirates dominate the

By Randall Luker
 
The score wasn’t the only lopsided aspect of Friday night’s 42-7 victory over Beaumont Ozen. The Panthers never hadmuch of a chance with Vidor’s Slot-T offense keeping the Panther offense sidelined for most of the game. Vidor’s run oriented offense amassed 472 yards on the ground on 63 attempts, an average of nearly 7.5 yards per carry with no aerial attempts. Vidor’s solid defense limited the Panthers to just 92 yards total offense with 30 of those coming through the air.
