Who can stop the run the best?
That’s the chore at hand for the Vidor Pirates and the Livingston Lions Friday night at Pirate Stadium with the winner taking over the District 20-4A second-place spot all alone.
Both the Pirates (7-1, 4-1) and Lions (4-4, 4-1) run the Slot-T formation extremely well and will put both defenses to the test in the next-to-last district game for both squads.
The Pirates will check in with 20-4A’s top-ranked offense (439.8 yards per game) and the top-ranked defense (204.3).
The Pirates have a plethora of backs to turn too behind a physical offensive line led by the likes of Devin Asher and Co.
Quarterback Montana Quirante has motored his way to 1,191 yards and a stunning 22 touchdowns on 130 carries.
Fullback Justin Moore has rumbled for 842 yards and 11 TDs on just 90 carries while tailback Thomas Novak has 481 yards and three TDs on 59 totes.
The Pirates are coming off a 49-13 win over Port Neches-Groves while the Lions defeated Central 28-20.
The Lion offense is paced by three-year starting quarterback Chevoski Collins, who has verbally committed to Oklahoma recently.
The Lions have a three-back arsenal that has rushed for more than 2,000 yards that includes Collins, Marquise Thomas and Damion Collins. Collins will also put the ball in the air from time to time with his favorite target being Garrett Green.
Vidor will close out its regular season on the road at Little Cypress-Mauriceville next week while the Lions return home to play host to PN-G.
