|Vidalia hosts Avoyelles|
Vidalia High is 0-3 on the season, but none of that matters heading into Friday night as the Vikings open district play with a Homecoming contest against Avoyelles Parish High School.
While the Vikings are winless, of the seven in Vidalia's district, only one team has won a game (Buckeye over LaSalle Friday).
Vidalia defeated Avoyelles 41-13 last year.
"The district is wide open," said Vidalia High assistant coach Gary Paul Parnham. "If we can get the kind of effort we had against Ferriday Friday night, we should be competitive. Avoyelles has some good athletes. They have some tall receivers. It's going to be a challenge. They are under new leadership and he has them playing hard."
Avoyelles has lost to Cecilia, Church Point and Jeannerette this season.
Parnham said Vidalia may be without Quan Riley, who suffered a pinched nerve against Ferriday last week.
Vidalia High head coach Dee Fairlcoth is expected to be back after missing the game with an illness following radiation treatment for prostate cancer.
Parnham is hoping Homecoming does not have his team losing focus.
"That's a big Coach Faircloth pet peeve, Homecoming being a distraction," Parnham said. "And I'm the same way. We need something positive to happen and get the early momentum. We had a great effort for four quarters last week and we need the same thing this week."
