Weightman's hat trick lifts Lady Cats; Colonels win shootout to earn state playoff berth

Reagan Weightman scored a hat trick Friday night to lead Woodland over Cass, 3-2.

Reagan Weightman scored three goals and Chloe Ravish made a save on a Cass penalty kick to lift the Woodland Lady Cats over visiting Cass Friday night, 3-2.

Weightman scored all three Woodland goals in the first 18 minutes with Carlie Forman assisting on two of the scores.

Morgan Tompkins scored a goal late in the first half to make the score 3-1 at the intermission and added a second goal off a corner kick midway through the second half to pull the Lady Colonels within one score.

Cass was awarded a penalty kick in the final eight minutes, but Ravish made the key save to secure Woodland’s victory.

Woodland (5-6-2, 2-3) secured a Class 5A state playoff berth as a 4-seed. The Lady Cats have non-region regular season matches remaining Monday at home against South Paulding (5:30 p.m.), at Paulding County Tuesday (5:30 p.m.) and at home against Rome Friday night (5:30 p.m.). The Lady Cats will open the state playoffs the following week at third-ranked Chamblee. The Bulldogs are the Region 5-5A champs.


Juan Pajarito

After playing the full 90 minutes of regulation and two more five minute overtime periods Friday night at Wildcats Stadium, Woodland and Cass went to a penalty kick shootout to ultimately decide Region 7-5A’s final state playoff berth.

Cass’ Juan Pajarito, who had lifted Cass over Cartersville earlier in the season with a final penalty kick, converted the Colonels fifth PK in the shootout for a 5-4 victory over the Wildcats.

Carlos Morales, Camden Hillhouse, Alex Hernandez, and Jose Rodriguez also made penalty kicks in the shootout for Cass.

The victory — along with Cartersville's win over Calhoun Friday night — left the Colonels in a three-way tie for second place in Region 7-5A with Calhoun and Cartersville. The three teams finished the region schedule with 1-1 marks against each other and 3-2 in all region games. Due to the region tiebreaker of fewest goals allowed in head-to-head games, Cartersville wound up the No. 2-seed, Calhoun third, and Cass will be the No. 4-seed. Cass (10-5-1, 3-2) will host East Paulding in a non-region match to close out the regular season Tuesday night before going on the road the following week to face the Region 5-5A champion in the opening round of the state playoffs.
