Fast and furious fourth quarter seals Pirate victory over Raiders

By Randall Luk


After a slow start, the Vidor Pirates notched another district win with a 40-21 victory at Lumberton.


After being stopped early, the Pirates’ offense drew first blood at 5:50 in the first when Skylar Leckelt broke through the Raider defense and outdistanced his pursuers for a 64 yard touchdown run. The Quirante kick put the Pirates up 7-0.


Both teams traded punts on their next possessions. Lumberton picked up a first on a 14 yard completion and then 7 yards on a run, but a 15 yard sack killed their drive and they had to punt to the Pirates, who got the ball on the 5 yard line.
