Anual crappie trip fun

By Capt. Bill Watkins

At dawn this Tuesday morning we awoke to the sound of steady rain falling on the roof of our cabin at Powell Park Marina. We were there for our annual crappie trip with Bart Ewing who operates the 30 ft. crappie barge. It didn’t look good as the tropical wave that has been hanging around the coast since Sunday seemed poised to wipe out our trip. But we were there so we wandered on down to the marina restaurant for breakfast. At least the eggs, bacon, and toast were good, as was the coffee. It was still raining when we finished breakfast so we decided to hang out and see what might develop. Bart was a little concerned about the weather but we remained hopeful. At least there had been no lightning. We sat on a park bench outside the marina store and watched the real time weather radar on two different websites.

The Seminoles struck first with a 35-yard toss from Trey Green to WR Bradley Greene at 10:21 in the first quarter. The score was set up by an Anfernee Dixon interception on the Red Raiders’ opening drive.

Seminoles, Red Raiders vie for the Conference Championship in Vidor

By Randall Luker

 

Vidor’s own Golden Triangle Seminoles and Houston’s Texas Red Raiders will battle it out Saturday in Pirate Stadium for the TUFA Longhorn Conference Championship and the right to advance to the 2018 TUFA Superbowl.

 

The two teams have met twice before with the Red Raiders claiming victory both times. Earlier this season when they met, the Seminoles dominated in the first half and the Red Raiders in the second, to emerge the winner with less than 10 seconds left on the clock.

 

Both teams have perfected their games in the meantime and Saturday’s game should be a great one that is expected to come down to the wire.

TUFA decision revamps Seminoles’ playoff schedule

Randall Luker
The Vidorian

What was settled wasn’t, then it was. Following last Saturday’s TUFA Divisional Playoff games, the Golden Triangle Seminoles 32-14 victory over San Antonio’s Texas Ravens assured them a place in the Conference Championship game that determines who goes to the league’s Super Bowl. However, the playoff game in Houston between the Texas Red Raiders and the Texas Mustangs was called at halftime due to weather. After considering several scenarios and with discussions between the owners, GM, HC, and the commissioner, a complete overhaul of the playoff picture emerged that takes different possibilities into consideration.
