Senior RB Zach Dahlenburg eludes a Bronco defender with a teammates help in Friday’s 28-7 win over Dayton.

The 2018 Vidor Pirates varsity football team ended their season as it began–with a win, as they defeated the Dayton Broncos 28-7 in Pirate Stadium on Senior Night.

The Pirates received the kick-off and began a steady 10-play march upfield from the 36 before being stopped after an incomplete pass on 4th and 10 on the Broncos’ 28.

Taking over on the 28, the Broncos lost yardage to the 20 after a sack and punted to the Pirates, who got the ball on their 32 yard line.

Lady Pirate basketball defeats Kelly Dawgs 44-39

By Randall Luker

 

In a neck and neck game that wasn’t decided until the final seconds, the Vidor Lady Pirate varsity basketball team defeated the Lady Dawgs of Beaumont’s Monsignor Kelly High School 44-39 Tuesday in Pirate Gym. The Lady Pirates led 17-10 at the half, but by the end of the third period, the Lady Dawgs had evened the score to 25-25. The fourth period proved to be decisive as the Lady Pirates outscored the Lady Dawgs 19-14 to take the win. The Beaumont team made the Lady Pirates fight for the victory, knotting the score at 39-39 with a little over 30 seconds remaining in the game, but the Lady Pirates jumped out front when Chriseline Quirante sunk a 3- pointer and was fouled and made her free throws too, securing the Lady Pirate victory.

Offensive shootout in Pirates 61-62 loss to Ganders

By Randall Luker

 

The Vidor Pirates and Robert E. Lee Ganders put on an offensive display Friday night combining to light up the scoreboard with 123 points. Unfortunately for the Pirates, who battled back from a 21 point deficit in the second half, the game literally came down to the final seconds and a failed two point conversion attempt that would have made the score 63- 62 for the Pirates. Lee scored the first of the 18 touchdowns scored in the game on their first possession.

“Goofy” girls, coaches work hard to make VISD volleyball history

By Randall Luker

 

A special team chemistry, hard work and determination got the Lady Pirate volleyball team to the bi-district playoffs for the first time ever in 2018. The team went 24- 16 on the season and 6-6 in district. Melissa Story, in her fifth year as Vidor’s head volleyball coach, said of this year’s team,

“this is the best season record wise I have found going back 10 years. Prior to this year, my best season here was two years ago when we had 16 wins and even then, that was only two district wins.” Story said this team showed it was different than previous years early on.“

Banged up Pirates look to win out season

By Randall Luker

 

“We’re looking to go 5-5, that’s our goal,” Jeff Mathews said Monday as he reported at least eight starters were bruised, banged up, or lost for the season. To reach that goal, Mathews’ team will have to win their last two games-at Baytown Lee Friday and at home November 9 against the Dayton Broncos.

 

In order to accomplish that goal, Mathews has reached down to the junior varsity to bring up several players to fill the holes created by injury.

 

Mathews said last week against Nederland, he only had one experienced cornerback remaining and had to pull RB Zach Dahlenburg from offense to play corner, a position he was unfamiliar with.
