Evangel saves the day

When Evangel won in overtime tonight at Kentwood, the Eagles kept northwest Louisiana from being shut out of the Superdome Classic.

Just to show you how rare a shutout of northwest Louisiana is, had Evangel lost tonight it would have marked the first time since 1981 that no northwest Louisiana team had played for a state football championship in any class.

Instead, the streak goes on for the area.

Evangel's win wasn't a surprise - the difficulty in which Evangel faced (a 27-20 victory in overtime) was.

Minden's loss wasn't a surprise - the ease in which Bastrop won (60-6) was.

It hasn't been a great year for the area. But it hasn't been a wipeout either.
