SCL and Evergreen championships: updated

With just a game or two to go for teams in the Shasta Cascade League and Evergreen league, there are some very tight races.

Shasta Cascade League Boys

1. Modoc (8-1) – the Braves can lock up at least a share of the title by winning against Etna (3-6) at home on Thursday. If Fall River (7-1) falters against Mt. Shasta on Tuesday night or Burney on Thursday night, the SCL title belongs to Modoc outright.

2. Fall River (7-1) – the Bulldogs also have at least a share of the title in their control by winning out. They need to beat Mt. Shasta (5-3) on Tuesday, and then Burney (0-9) on Thursday. In order for the Bulldogs to win the league outright, Modoc would have to be upset by Etna.

Shasta Cascade League Girls

1. Mt. Shasta (7-1) – the Lady Bears have total control of their destiny. Win their remaining game against Fall River on Tuesday, win in Weed on Friday, and the Lady Bears win the title outright.

2. Weed (7-2) – the Lady Cougars still have a very good shot of grabbing at least share of the SCL crown. To win it outright, Weed has to beat Mt. Shasta on Friday, Mt. Shasta would have to lose to Fall River on Tuesday, and Fall River would have to lose to Burney on Thursday. No matter what Fall River does, Weed can gain at least a share of the title by beating Mt. Shasta.

3. Fall River (6-2) – the Lady Bulldogs have control of their own destiny, as far as a share of the title goes. Win their remaining game against Mt. Shasta and win in Burney (1-8) next Friday, and the Lady Bulldogs will share the title.
