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.

By Randall Luker

 

It was another hard fought game filled with missed opportunities that wasn’t decided until the final moments Friday as the Vidor Pirates lost to the Port Neches Groves Indians 38-32 at The Reservation.

 

PNG opened up the scoring just 52 seconds into the game after the Pirates attempted an onside kick the Indians covered on the 42. The Indians covered the 58 yards in five plays with Indian QB Roschon Johnson scoring both the TD and two point conversion to make the score 8-0.

Upbeat Pirates heading to The Reservation to take on PNG Indians

Coming off a 42-36 triple overtime loss to the Crosby Cougars last week, the Vidor Pirates have put that game behind them and are looking forward to taking on their long time midcounty nemesis, the Port- Neches Groves Indians, on their home turf. He a d Co a c h J e f f Mathews said the Pirates’ practice this week saw the team fired up and ready to take it to the Indians. “They probably took it better than I did,” Coach Mathews said. “We worked hard in practice, live tackling, fundamentals, blocking, anything we did, it was ‘yes sir’.

They are ready.” With PNG’s blue-chip QB Roschon Johnson expected to be healthy for the game, the Pirates will have to be in top form for Friday.

“They are as good as Crosby,” Mathews said. “Big offensive linemen. They try to count you, spread you out and try to make you go man-to man coverage. They try to cross you up and throw the ball deep.

Pirates to face league favorite Crosby Friday in district opener

By Randall Luker

With the Pirates opening district play Friday against the league favorite Crosby, Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews said the team will have to put all the pieces together and play up to the level they are capable of to win. “I don’t think we have played as well as we are capable,” Mathews said Monday.

“That’s the frustrating part. Last week our fakes were very good, this week they were terrible. We looked at the film and our guys were taking two steps and just stopping. That’s selfish to me.” Last week, the Pirates focused on the running backs’ blocking and that got better, Mathews said, so Monday morning’s practice focused on the running backs carrying out their fakes better
