Seminoles blank Hurricanes 27-0 in season opener

By Randall Luker

 

Vidor’s own Golden Triangle Seminoles’ debut in Pirate Stadium was wet and muddy, but in spite of the less than perfect conditions, there were plenty of fireworks on the field as the Seminoles dominated the Katy Hurricanes 27-o. The Seminoles played a complete game, scoring through the air, on the ground and on defense.

 

The scoring began when Quarterback Trey Green found wide receiver Bradley Greene open inside the 10 at 13:39 in the first quarter and Greene hauled in an over the shoulder pass to put the Seminoles up by 6. The PAT was good and the Seminoles had a perfect start to the 2018 season.

A good red fish bite on Sabine Lake makes a good day

By Capt. Bill Watkins

The alarm clock was beeping. It sounded as if it were far away but getting ever closer. As I awakened I heard a young man’s voice saying, “You are not going fishing today”. Still groggy, I wondered who said that. It is crazy how dreams are and there is no explaining most of them. Oh well, there was no time to dwell on it because that day was a fishing day and I had to get dressed and moving. I will have to admit though that I was really careful driving to Sabine lake. After arriving at the ramp and launching the boat I thought of the voice again. “Well, I made it this far”, I thought to myself. Nine miles latter I pulled the boat up to our first fishing spot and dropped the Power Pole anchor in the mud. No one was ready to cast but me. So, I decided that I would make the first cast.

Pirates tops Nederland 4-3 in varsity soccer

By Randall Luker

It was an amazing finish to a hard fought game as the varsity soccer Pirates topped the Nederland Bulldogs 4-3 in a comeback win made even more spectacular as the Pirates were playing one man short after a player was shown his second yellow card and ejected. The winning goal, a textbook long distance kick by Garrett Healy, came with 4:16 remaining and sailed over the defenders’ heads, dropping at just the right moment to find the corner of the goal just out of the reach of Nederland goalie’s outstretched arms.

Tied 2-2 at the half, the Pirates fell behind 3-2 early in the second half but battled back, scoring twice in the final 15 minutes of the second half, once on a penalty kick, and again on Healy’s effort. Both goals came after a Pirate player was shown his second yellow card and ejected, giving Nederland a one player advantage.
