Pirates lose heartbreaker to Port Neches-Groves

By Randall Luker


The final seconds were decisive in a heartbreaking 41-40 loss to district rivals Port Neches- Groves Friday.


The Vidor Pirate varsity basketball team had already defeated the Indians twice this season in the Bridge City and Nederland tournaments, but in their first district meeting, poor shooting from the free throw line cost the Pirates.


The game see-sawed with the Indians up 10-9 after the first period, the Pirates led 18-12 after the Indians could just put up two points in the second, but in the third period, the Indians came up big, outscoring the Pirates 19-11 to regain the lead at 31-29. The Pirates settled down and outscored the Indians 11- 10 in the fourth.




Top scorers for Vidor were Elizabeth Torres with 7 points and Nicole Sanders with 6 points.
