Pirates face tough test at home against district leading Indians

 By Randall Luker The Vidorian


Way back before Harvey, or the first snap of the season even, Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews predicted, in no particular order, that Port Arthur Memorial and Port Neches Groves would be number one and two in District 22-5A, and as it turns out, he hit the nail on the head.


The Indians and Titans battled it out in a slugfest last Friday with the Indians eventually coming out on top 44-36 at The Reservation. With the win, Port Neches-Groves at 5-0, 4-0 is at the top of the 22-5A heap, with PAM 4-1, 4-1 in second. Vidor, at 3-1, 3-1 and Nederland, 3-2, 4-2 round out the top four. To beat the Indians, Vidor is going to have to eliminate the drive killing mental errors which cost them the Nederland game, and find a way to stop two of the district’s most potent offensive players in QB Roschon Johnson and WR Preston Riggs. Riggs has scored 69 points for the Indians and Johnson, 62.
