The two teams then settled into a defensive struggle and neither found the net in the second half of their matchup.
The win improved North Paulding's record to 13-2 on the season while Woodland dropped to 6-9.
"I thought we were a step slow in the first half," head coach Kyle Morgan said. "To my girls' credit, they didn't fold and we kept the game respectable. We made some mistakes, and North Paulding made us pay for that."
He said the Lady Wolfpack are a good team and will be representing their region in the upcoming state playoffs.
Morgan said the Lady Wildcats, who were playing on the road against North Paulding, need to keep focusing on playing tough against their opponents to find ways to improve their game.
"We play South Forsyth on Saturday and that's a real challenge," he said. "We have to play two halves of good soccer against them. They're a really good team."
Woodland and South Forsyth square off at 2 p.m. at South Forsyth.
