Semifinal chances

Two teams remain, and I think neither game (Evangel at Kentwood or Minden at Bastrop) is a gimme.
Let's take Evangel first. The Eagles could be getting a little too much confidence after a 42-6 win over Calvary. I think they and many of their fans have given the numbers on the scoreboard a little too much importance in predicting future outcomes.
Evangel's trump card is its defense, which has to be one of the quickest lines in the state. Kentwood can't throw the ball well enough to be considered much of a threat, but don't count out a traditional power playing at home.
As for Minden, the Tide has speed and more speed. Speed kills, and Bastrop will have to play well to have the easy time many think the Rams will have.
