Lady Bears and Cougars will play for a trip to the March 2 Division championship game at Chico State.

They are the 2013 Shasta Cascade League co-champions, and now the Weed and Mount Shasta Lady Cougars are scheduled to face each other for a fourth time this season with a trip to the section championship game on the line.

No. 2 seeded Weed (20-8) will host No. 3 Mount Shasta (17-9) in a Northern Section Division V playoff semifinal Tuesday night, Feb. 26, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Cougars' gymnasium.

Tuesday's other semifinal will be SCL third place finisher Fall River (16-9), the No. 4 seed, at No. 1 Durham (21-6), undefeated champions in the Sacramento Valley League.

The semifinal winners will play for the section championship Saturday, March 2, at Chico State beginning at 2:30 p.m.

Mount Shasta and Weed will be playing each other for the third time in six weeks.

After Weed defeated the Bears Feb. 15 in Mount Shasta, 43-31, they finished tied for first in the SCL at 10-2. The Lady Bears' other league loss was also to Weed, 44-22, Jan. 22 in Weed.

The Lady Cougars' lost two road games in between those two wins over the Bears, 49-44 at Fall River Feb. 1 and 40-37 at Modoc Feb. 13. Weed earned the higher postseason seed because of its head-to-head record against Mount Shasta.

In the playoffs last week, Weed won two home games, 64-15 over Los Molinos and 42-37 Friday night over another SCL team, Etna.

Mount Shasta won its first playoff game by forfeit, then defeated Biggs, 62-29, Thursday night in Mount Shasta.

Early in the 2012-13 season, Mount Shasta defeated Weed, 46-41, at the Yreka Miner Invitational.

"We know them well," Weed coach Bob West said of the Bears. "They're a good team. We just need to do what we do."
