Out of playoff picture, Pirates now in spoiler role

By Randall Luker

With four district losses and only three games to play, the Vidor Pirates are out of the 2018 playoff picture, but they can still play the role of spoiler as they face the undefeated Nederland Bulldogs Friday in Pirate Stadium.

The Pirates began the year 3-0 and have given their district opponents all they could handle with most games coming down to the final minutes before the winning team was determined. Vidor’s losses have come against the undefeated in district Port Neches Groves Indians, 3-1 Santa Fe Indians, 3-1 Barbers Hill Eagles, and the 2-2 Crosby Cougars, a game which went into triple overtime. A somewhat banged up Pirate team hopes to hang an “L” on the Bulldogs this Friday.

Pirates face must win game situation here on out

By Randall Luker

 

With three district losses, the Vidor Pirates must find the fire they had in early district games and win out the remainder of their season if they hope to make the playoffs in 2018.

 

After losing to Crosby and Port Neches in what amounted to a one play difference, the Pirates came out flat Friday and showed none of the intensity of their earlier games.
