We are down to 8. Who has a chance?
Front Runner: St X - Deep, and good. They flat out will wear you down with keeping the fresh legs coming. I don't care for the unlimited substitution rule. The are far and away the favorite. They beat Daviess and Oldham by a 11-1 combined score this year and have beat top 5 teams Collegiate, Trinity and Ballard on the march to the championship.
Second Fiddle(s): Ryle and Oldham County. They are hoping someone would knock out X so they could play each other in the final. I think if Ryle makes the final and doesn't make mistakes,.. they have a shot. Ryle is 1-0 vs. those alive. Oldham has played a solid schedule and if healthy has a slim chance vs. St X. Jeff Thomas needs to have a big game up top and defense has to play flawless. Oldham is 1-1 vs remaining teams. Unfortunately one of those was an 0-5 loss to St X early in October.
So you say there is a chance?: Warren Central. Has had a great year, with great defense. Now they are wishing they had played a tougher schedule to prep for the teams ahead. I would say they have a very slim shot. Should make the final 4, but then I believe they may be out of their league. 1-0 against remaining teams.
Not dead yet: Campbell County-Need to get the offense geared up to overcome a tough defensive squad, 0-1 against remaining teams. Daviess County-Should make final 4, but will need to bring back last years magic to win it all. Only 3 losses this year,.. but are 0-3 against teams in the final 8.
Slim to none,.. but seriously, no chance: Perry Central and Corbin. Congratulations on making it this far and a great season, but I just don't see either one being able to string together 3 more wins.
