Game time is 6 p.m. tonight at Pajaro Valley High School in Watsonville.

The Cougars and Mustangs split the regular season series. The most recent installment  went the Cougars’ way 42-38 on Feb. 8, which clinched the MBL championship. The Mustangs defeated CHS 55-50 in overtime in the teams’ first enounter.
