|Vidalia-Block game cancelled|
Vidalia High head football coach Dee Faircloth said Friday's scheduled season-opening football game at Block High in Jonesville has been cancelled.
Faircloth said Block High principal Donald Money made the announcement of the cancellation.
The home team's principal must make that call.
Jonesville has received 19 inches of rain since Monday.
Vidalia will open its season at home Sept. 12 against Ouachita Christian, while Block will open its season at Ferriday on Sept. 12.
Block High head coach Benny Vault.
Vidalia High head coach Dee Faircloth had practice for the first time this week in the gym on Wednesday.
"Right now we're just trying to survive," Faircloth said.
According to the Louisiana High School Athletic Assocation's Web site, games scheduled this week will be played or not played according to the home team's principal.
The ruling states:
"1. Prior to the officials assuming jurisdiction of a game, the decision to play will be left to the discretion of the home team's principal. The two principals must also decide whether to reschedule and play the game.
2. By mutual agreement of the principals of the competing schools, a postponed game, district or non-district, may be rescheduled and completed under the following conditions: a If a non-district game is cancelled, by mutual agreement, it shall not be counted in determining power points for the involved schools."
Block defeated Tensas 22-0 in the Vidalia Jamboree Saturday, while Vidalia fell to Delhi Charter 12-8.
"Tensas only had two plays for positive yardage against Block," Faircloth said.
"We found out a little bit about who can play and who can't play," Faircloth said. "We'll have to go back to the drawing board now."
Delhi Charter scored on its first possession as quarterback Scott Scurria scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak.
Vidalia had a chance to stop the drive, but was unable to recover a Gator fumble despite several Vikings around the ball.
"We've got to learn to just fall on it and not try and pick it up," Faircloth said. "That's what practicing in the gym all the time will get you."
Vidalia got on the board on its first possession as Caleb Vines completed a 41-yard pass to Gary Stewart to the Delhi Charter 19. ive plays later, Kevin Johnson scored on a 14-yard run. Tri McCoy ran in the conversion.
With 27 seconds remaining in first period, Delhi answered with a 3-yard scoring pass from Scuria to Jeremy Foote for a 12-8 lead.
"I was disappointed in our defense allowing them to go 70 yards and letting them score before the half," Faircloth said.
Vidalia turned ball over on a fumble before getting the ball back with 7:08 remaining, but was unable to get past midfield.
Faircloth had lineman John Brixey injured in the game and he was diagnosed later with a dislocated shoulder.
Vines missed the second half with a sprained ankle after being stepped on.
Hunter Key scored two touchdowns for Block, while Curdarius Johnson threw a touchdown pass to Justin Winborne.
"We played well on defense, but the defense is always ahead of the offense," Vaught said. "We were not mentally focused on offense. We had a couple of touchdowns called back. When we did execute property, we looked good. We're still looking for some linemen and shuffling some people around to find the right combination."
