Woodland has already faced two stout challenges in Region 5-AAAAA this season.

Woodland will get a third opportunity to set the tone for how its season could go while welcoming New Manchester to Wildcat Stadium on Friday night.

Head coach Vince DiLorenzo said he’s beginning to see some Wildcats step up in hopes of bringing about a better result on the field.

He said New Manchester has been establishing its own identity — it is scoring an average of 19 points per game while giving up 20 points per game, and Woodland can expect a challenge from the Jaguars’ offense when they line up on the field Friday night.

“They are a good team. They have a 2-1 record,” the Woodland coach said. “They have a new program and they are very well coached. They have a lot of great skill players.”

The Douglasville school notched its wins against Paulding County (23-20) and Lithia Springs (14-0) while losing to North Paulding, 41-20.

In comparison, Woodland has averaged 10 points per game while giving up 47 in its losses to Allatoona (45-20) and East Paulding (49-0).

DiLorenzo said despite entering its third gave of the season, Woodland has yet to establish its identity.
