Pirates take last minute 27-24 road win over GCM Patriots

By Pearce Bland

Stallworth Stadium in Baytown was full of energy as the Vidor Pirates prepared for the October 15th game against Goose Creek Memorial Patriots. #24 Bridger Quirante started the game with a kickoff to Goose Creek. Vidor’s defense pushed and pulled on the Goose Creek offensive line, and kept them away from the end zone, but not far enough to prevent the Patriots putting the first points on the board in the form of a Field Goal.

This year has been a fishing adventure

By Capt. Bill Watkins
 
In the sixteen years that I have guided on Sabine Lake I have never seen a year quite like this one has been. “The rains came down and the floods came up”, to quote an old children’s Bible school song and fresh water dominated this normally salt water fishery. For a couple of weeks in February it was difficult to catch a box of trout, reds, or flounder.

VHS at UIL Marching Contest

Saturday, October 17th, the Vidor High School Mighty Pirate Marching Band participated in the UIL marching contest. The band walked away with an award of three straight ones which is known as sweepstakes. Some of the critiques the band received were “Good percussion” and “Nice musicality.” When asked what the expectations were going into the contest, Kristen Davis, the Mighty Pirate Marching Band’s Drum Major said, “I think going into any kind of performance, especially contest, we’re expected to do our best. Stay in step, play every note, etc. We’ve made a lot of progress this year, so I think we were expected to do better than we did at contest last year as well, which we did.” The Band did an excellent job representing Vidor’s city and High School while accomplishing fantastic results!

Pirates take last minute 27-24 road win over GCM Patriots

By Dan Luker

Vidor’s Pirates kept their playoff hopes alive for another week with a thrilling come from behind win over the Goose Creek Memorial Patriots in Baytown last Thursday night. Arriving late at Stallworth Stadium due to a wreck on I-10, the Pirates were slow to get untracked on offense in the first half, being shut out in the first two quarters for the first time this year. Meanwhile, the host Patriots managed to put 10 first half points on the board, first by kicking a 27 yard field goal with :38 left in the first quarter and then adding a touchdown on a one yard plunge with 4:47 left in the half.

Pirates set records with 83-54 win over Baytown Lee Ganders

By Dan Luker

On a night where offensive fireworks were on display from the opening minute to the end of the game, Vidor’s Pirates set school records for most points scored in a half and most points scored in a game. With less than two minutes gone in the first quarter, the teams put up 27 points between them with Vidor leading 14-13. Fans began to jokingly question if 100 points could possibly be put on the scoreboard before all was said and done. The 100 mark was surpassed in the third quarter as the track meet continued in the second half.

Shrimp migration has begun

By Capt. Bill Watkins

Four days ago as my crew and I fished along the shore of Black’s Bayou we noticed a large butterfly boat ahead around the next bend. As we neared the boat we could see that the shrimpers on board were busy off loading the nights haul of shrimp into a smaller outboard powered skiff tied alongside. Evidently the nights catch was really good because the large plastic bin in the skiff was already.
