Against all odds, Minden slipped into the playoffs with the last seed in the 4A state bracket. The Tide lost another heartbreaker to North DeSoto on Friday in an overtime game for the ages. Heading into that game, Minden sat at number 32 in the state power ratings. Even with the loss, Minden maintained the last spot in the playoffs. The Tide will head to New Orleans to play #1-seed Edna Karr. Karr has yet to lose a game this season, though their last match against Warren Easton came down to the wire in a one-point victory for the Cougars.
