Brooke Hummel intercepted a pass near midcourt and dribbled just ahead of two Lady Wolfpack players for a layup and the lead that Woodland never relinquished Friday night in advancing, 34-32, to the 5-AAAAA Region Tournament today after winning the play-in game.

Woodland will play New Manchester today at 6 p.m. at East Paulding.

Woodland and North Paulding had been knotted at 27-all after the 4:23 mark of the final quarter when Hummel’s thievery helped the Lady Wildcats break the 27-all tie. It was the first lead all night for Woodland. The two teams were tied briefly at 2-all early in the first quarter.

Katie Harris had helped Woodland tie North Paulding by hitting the second of two foul shots and then followed up Hummel’s score with a bucket off an assist from the junior guard, expanding the lead to 31-27.

Kennedy Robinson quickly hit both ends of a one-and-one to push the lead to 33-27. Morgan Ferrell of North Paulding responded with two free throws to close the score to 33-29. Robinson scored Woodland’s last point almost 30 seconds later for a 34-29 lead and Jalexis Teemer buried a 3-pointer with 5 seconds left to pull within 34-32 for North Paulding.
