The Pirates end the season at 3-7, a one game improvement over the 2014 season.

Rain dampens opening day

The frost was white on the ground and the stars were like diamonds twinkling on an ink black background. No doubt the deer would be moving on this opening morning of the season. Hold on! So much for big buck daydreams in fantasy land.

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!
