Vidor Pirates roll over Central Jaguars 42-21 in season opener

By Randall Luker

 

The Vidor Pirates’ 2017 football finally got underway Tuesday night with an impressive display on both sides of the ball as they cruised to a 42-21 district win over the Beaumont Central Jaguars. Vidor is now 1-0 in district while Central falls to 0-2.

 

Vidor looked to be in trouble early when Central’s QB Davis turned a third and long into an 80-yard pass completion to Ruffin for a touchdown that put the Jags up 7-0 with 8:02 left in the first period.

Vidor, Central to face off Tuesday in district opener

By Randall Luker

Vidor will open the 2017 football season at home Tuesday with a district game against Central thanks to the regular schedule upheaval created by Hurricane Harvey’s torrential rains and subsequent flooding.

Central, coming off a 35-6 loss against expected district first or second place finisher Port Arthur Memorial has that game experience under their belts, but only three days to prepare for the Pirates and no current game film to help them get ready.

Pirates top Hawks 4-1 in Thursday night scrimmage

By Randall Luker

After an almost two week layoff, the Vidor Pirates as well as the Hardin Jefferson Hawks looked a little rusty after the Harvey-induced interruption of the 2017 football season that saw the cancellation of the first two regular season games although the Pirates did manage two pre-season scrimmages before the flood. Managing to schedule a last minute scrimmage with the 10-AAAA Hardin Jefferson Hawks following Harvey was a feat in itself but both teams faced similar circumstances and the much needed scrimmage was an opportunity neither team could pass up.

Hurricane Harvey and Sabine Lake fishing

By Capt. Bill Watkins

 

Most of the main roads are open now but everything close to the river is still under water. As I ride around Vidor I am beginning to see those sad piles of clothing, sheetrock, insulation, carpet, and other household items on the side of the streets. It is reminiscent of Bridge City after Hurricane Ike but now it is everywhere from Rock Port Texas to Lake Charles Louisiana. It brings tears to my eyes. I can feel for those who have been displaced and even wiped out by this vicious demon called Harvey because I have lived it myself in Rita and later Ike. I did not think that we would have to go through anything like those two storms again in my lifetime but so much for what I think. This one was different.

Pirates squeeze in scrimmage before district play begins

The Vidor Pirates will scrimmage the District 10-AAAA Hardin Jefferson Hawks at 7 p.m. Thursday Sept. 14 at Pirate Stadium.
After Harvey upended the fall 2017 school sports schedule for many schools, it appeared Vidor would be jumping into district play at a serious disadvantage, having only two scrimmages under their belt and an open first week in the revised schedule. By the time Vidor faced its first district opponent, several teams in the district would have completed two to three games and gained that valuable experience on the gridiron, placing the Pirates at a disadvantage.
Recognizing that Vidor was not the only team placed in that position, head Coach Jeff Mathews reached out and was able to add Thursday’s scrimmage, a move that should prove advantageous to both the Pirates and the Hawks as they prepare for district play to commence in the truncated 2017 schedule.
