The game will be broadcast live on MIX 95.1 FM.
The Cubs are 0-4, while the Eagles are 3-1 and coming off a 22-20 win at Healdsburg last week.
St. Bernard’s (4-0), Ferndale (2-2), Arcata (2-2) and Hoopa (1-3) all have byes this week.
The latter three will kick off the Little 4 next week, with Ferndale hosting McKinleyville and Arcata hosting Hoopa.
