Woodland downs Unity Christian

The Woodland girls basketball team put forth another strong defensive effort and a fourth-quarter rally to pick up its second win of the season Thursday in Armuchee.

Playing in a consolation game of the Rome holiday tournament, the Wildcats held Unity Christian to single-digit points in each quarter of a 39-29 victory.

Trailing 26-22 entering the final stanza, Woodland (2-8) outscored Unity by a 17-3 margin to earn the double-digit win.

While the Wildcats held a slim 11-8 advantage after one quarter, the Lions led at the end of each of the second (17-16) and third periods (26-22).

Abigail Taylor scored eight of her 13 points in the fourth quarter to lead Woodland’s comeback charge. Morgan Echols added nine points, while Dylynn Motes posted seven.
