Both the Woodland Wildcats and the Cass Colonels played two games in less than 24 players. The only difference is the Wildcats have opened their season with two straight victories, while the Colonels are still looking for their first win of the season.

The Wildcats, coming off a season opening 47-46 victory over New Manchester Friday, made it two straight with their, 55-44, victory over the Colonels.

“Both teams were tired and the game lacked the intensity of a night game, but we were able to hold off a determined Cass team,” coach John Howard said.

The Wildcats led 15-5 after the first quarter, but found themselves clinging to a 24-23 halftime lead.

“We let up after we went up big early on,” Howard said. “Also, we are not as sharp as we like to be. But it’s still early in the season.”

Tied at 39-39 in the fourth quarter, Woodland pulled away on two 3-pointers by Greg Murphy and another by Desmon Green. Following his 3-pointer, Green’s basket made it 50-39 Woodland.

Murphy would finish with a game-high 21 points, while Green and Tae Covington each scored 11.
