Pirates punish Panthers 34-7 in Conroe

The Vidor Pirates traveled to Conroe Thursday night due to field conditions in Vidor and defeated the Conroe Caney Creek Panthers 34-7 on the turf field. The Pirates won the toss and deferred to the second half. After holding the Panthers to a three and out on their first possession, the Pirates started on the Panther 29 following a poor Conroe punt.

The Pirates jumped out to an early lead when a handoff to #11 Zach Dahlenburg saw him shrug off would be tacklers and ramble 29 yards to paydirt to put the Pirates up 6-0 with just 1:31 gone in the first quarter. Jackson LaPray’s PAT was good, and the Pirates led 7-0.

Pirates use off week to fine tune finesse plays and add deception and trickery

By Randall Luker

The off week for the Pirates was put to good use to improve players both physically and mentally Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews said. District play opens September 28 against Crosby and the Pirate coaches and players are working hard to be sure they are still playing in Week 12, but they also aren’t overlooking their pre-season opponents.

“We treated it like two-a-days. We had one game and then a week off and then two more games before district. We prepared for a preseason game, working on fundamentals, trying to fit every kid in the right place, to see if he is better at this position or at that position. We took advantage of that and I think we got better.

Pirates to take on Caney Creek Panthers Friday

By Randall Luker

Coming off a bye week, the 1-0 Vidor Pirates will face the 2-0 Conroe Caney Creek Panthers at Pirate Stadium Friday in a non-district contest.

In their season opening game August 31, the Pirates defeated the Montgomery Bears 42-14 and put up more than 500 yards of offense in just 58 plays while allowing 209. Miscues cost the Pirates three more likely scores and both Bear touchdowns resulted from drives beginning inside the Pirate’s 30-yard line, one set up by a penalty on a kickoff and another on a failed punt attempt.

Off week gives Pirates a chance to fine tune offense, defense

By Randall Luker

As the old saying goes, “Practice makes perfect” and that’s what the Pirates are doing during this off week, addressing areas that may still need some work. Coming off a 42- 14 win over the Montgomery Bears in the season opener, the Pirates showed strengths both offensively and defensively with relatively few hiccups. But, those few hiccups arguably cost the Pirates three touchdowns and gave the Bears two short field scores, mistakes that could make the difference in whether the Pirates nab a playoff spot in 2018.

Speaking with VISD Head Coach and Athletic Director Jeff Mathews Tuesday, he said overall, he was pleased with the Pirates’ performance.
