After the Chiefs erased its early lead, Woodland made enough clutch plays to prevail, 9-8.
"I think going into the game both teams were kind of reeling, trying to find their identity," Wildcats coach Corey Gochee said. "It was key for us to jump out [and] go up six runs."
Following a five-run second inning, Woodland held a 6-0 edge, but found itself down 7-6 after four innings as Sequoyah overcame the deficit with five runs in the third and two in the fourth.
The Wildcats tied it up in the fifth and then watched the Chiefs regain that lead in the sixth before Woodland's two runs in the seventh helped seal the deal.
Cody Baxter pitched the final inning for the win, striking out two and recording a game-ending groundout to shortstop.
"We preach to these guys that we gotta finish," Gochee said. "We had a few guys step up and get it done. ... We had guys pick each other up.
"Tonight, we were able to execute."
Jacob Moore pitched three innings, striking out seven and giving up three runs. Robert Harris also pitched three innings, giving up one earned run with four strikeouts.
Harris led Woodland at the plate, with a 4-for-4 night that included two doubles and a home run. "He played very well," Gochee said.
Other hitters for the Wildcats were Luke Patterson, 3-for-4; Baxter, 1-for-3 (one run); and Camden McGill, 1-for-3.
"[We are] savoring the victory tonight, but tomorrow's a new day," Gochee said following his team's one-run win Tuesday. "We gotta get ready for Friday. We haven't done anything yet. We just won one [region] game.
"We've got a few guys that we still need to make some adjustments with offensively."
The Wildcats (3-3, 1-0) host Johns Creek Friday at 5:55 p.m.
"They're pretty decent," Gochee said of the second-year Gladiators. "This year, we don't have those teams in our region that should be wins."
