Woodland, Cass boys grab home, non-region wins Friday night


The Woodland boys picked up their second win of the season Friday night with a home victory over Pepperell, 80-70. The Wildcats led 24-17 after one quarter, 44-37 at halftime, and 64-48 after three quarters before holding on for the 10-point non-region win. “It was a great win for us and we led most of the game,” said Woodland coach Jacob Selman. “We posted our highest point total of the season and it was great to see our guys put together four good quarters. I’m super proud of my guys tonight.”

Kemp Edge led Pepperell with 25 points. Tom Vincent followed with 17 for the Dragons.

Diaz Garrett paced the Wildcats with 32 points. KJ Rogers scored 20 and Jaden Langsten added eight for Woodland.

The loss drops Pepperell to 3-3 for the season.

Woodland (2-3) plays another non-region game Monday in Dalton at Morris Innovative.

NOTE: The Woodland-Pepperell girls game was postponed.



CASS BOYS 78, NORTH SPRINGS 71

The Cass boys snapped a two-game skid Friday night with a 78-71 home win over North Springs from Region 6-AAAAA. The Colonels led most of the way including a 36-31 advantage at the intermission. Cass also led 56-51 after three quarters, but coach Sean Glaze was not overly pleased with his team’s performance. “It was an ugly seven point win,” said Glaze. “We will have to play much cleaner next week against a really good Hebron Christian team. On the bright side, however, we had a good night collecting toys as part of our Toys for Tots event.” Zaylan Chaney and CJ Pipkin led Cass with 23 and 22 points, respectively. Braxton Benham and Jackson Hale followed with 12 points each. Jelani Howard and Hassane Diallo paced the visiting Spartans with 25 points each.

The loss keeps North Springs winless for the year at 0-4. Cass (4-3) will play next Friday and Saturday at the Sequoyah Holiday Tournament in Canton. The Colonels play Hebron Christian Academy at 5:30 p.m. Friday and will square off with the host Sequoyah Chiefs Saturday at 4 p.m.
