Woodland hoops teams fall to Gordon Central

Posted

The Woodland girls dropped a nip-and-tuck game with Gordon Central Friday at home.

After entering the fourth quarter down a single point, the Wildcats wound up falling by a 45-39 final score.

That marked the largest margin at the end of any of the four periods. Gordon Central led 6-3 after one quarter before Woodland rallied to even the score at 13-apiece by halftime. The Warriors then held a slight 25-24 advantage after three periods.

Jordan Thompson scored eight of her 11 points in the fourth quarter, while Abigail Taylor added five of her eight during the final stanza.

Woodland (1-10) is scheduled to open Region 7-AAAAA with a Tuesday trip to Blessed Trinity.

Gordon Central 56, Woodland boys 43

K.J. Rogers poured in 20 points, but it wasn't enough to lead the Woodland boys to victory Friday at home.

The sophomore guard had nearly half of his team's points — including 15 of its 25 in the first half — in a 56-43 defeat against Gordon Central.

Rogers had eight in the opening stanza and seven in the second quarter. However, the Warriors still held leads of 16-13 and 32-25, respectively, at the end of those periods.

Woodland (2-10) pulled within 43-37 entering the fourth quarter only to see Gordon Central pull away over the final 8 minutes.

Next up for the Wildcats — who also received nine points on a trio of 3-pointers from Jordan Barker — is their Region 7-AAAAA opener Tuesday at Blessed Trinity.
