“We worked on finishing all week after our loss to Rome. You can see that paid off tonight with our win,” head coach Ed Guse said. “I’m very happy we can claim our first region win.”
The score after an evenly matched first half was 0-0. That would change when, 10 minutes into the second half, Jose Vazquez scored off a corner kick.
The next 20 minutes of play went back to evenly matched play with neither team scoring. However, what happened in the last 10 minutes was a different story.
With nine minutes left, Anthony De Filippo scored off a through-pass from Ewan Anderson making the score 2-0. Edgar Silvano then scored with six minutes left off a header from a free kick from Jose Panigua, making the score 3-0. With four minutes to go, a foul was called on a Woodland defender in the box and East Paulding scored a penalty kick to make the score 3-1.
Woodland kept the pressure on and with two minutes remaining, Logan Molinaro broke away and crossed a pass to John Scifers, who finished, making the score 4-1.
Silvano got one more goal for the Wildcats with less then a minute remaining to make the score 5-1.
Woodland had 15 shots on goal while keeper Kurt Moore had nine saves.
The Wildcats return to action today against Allatoona at home at 6 p.m.
