The Wildcats held Jaron Blossomgame -- who had a 42-point game earlier in the season -- to just 17 on the evening.
Tuesday night, the Wildcats put the clamps on another star scorer and, perhaps not coincidentally, claimed their second region victory in a row, as they got by Northwest Whitfield, 59-51.
"In our earlier game against Northwest, Jarrett Bruce had 34 points against us," head coach Mike Tobin said. "We held him to 10 points tonight."
Northwest defeated Woodland, 62-60, on Jan. 18 at home.
Woodland led throughout Tuesday's game, going up 17-12 in the first quarter and 34-19 at the break.
The Bruins turned the tables on Woodland defensively in the third quarter, allowing just nine points by their hosts while scoring 16 and closing the contest to 43-35.
Woodland outscored the visitors 16-14 in the final period, during which Daryel Morris went 6-of-7 and the team 10-of-13 from the free-throw line.
Morris was the leading scorer for Woodland, with 14 points; followed by Adam Tobin, 10; Cameron Mayweather, Greg Murphy and Isaiah Niblet, 7 each; Jacquez McKay, 5; R.J. Williams, 4, Corey Tobin, 3 and Chandler Royal, 1.
Coach Tobin said Woodland has turned up its defensive intensity.
"We've come to realize that's what we have to do to win," he said.
Woodland (13-8, 4-8 in Region 7-AAAA) entertains South Forsyth on Saturday.
