The Woodland Wildcats (1-3) ended a streak on Friday night, but not the 2-game losing streak that it was in coming into Friday night’s game against North Springs. Instead, Woodland found itself on the wrong end of history as North Springs defeated the Wildcats 13-9 and snapped an 18-game losing streak that began in 2019.
Woodland dominated the first half of play, but the halftime score didn’t reflect that. Woodland scored first on a 31-yard field goal by Nick Sanchez to gain a 3-0 advantage. More things appeared to go the Wildcats way when they stopped North Springs short of a fourth down conversion, but failed to convert the field position into points. North Springs scored on the next possession and held the 7-3 advantage into the half.
Woodland was able to regain the lead on a 2-yard run by Asa James, but failed the 2-point conversion with just over 16 minutes remaining in the game. But much like last week, the Woodland defense failed to limit the opposition on the following possession, as North Springs scored to hold a 13-9 lead.
In the fourth quarter, following the North Springs touchdown, Woodland appeared on the march and got inside the 10-yard line with a score seeming imminent.
Then disaster struck.
Woodland fumbled the football and North Springs corralled it at its own 8-yard line. The Woodland offense wouldn’t see the field again as North Springs held onto the football for the final four minutes to hold onto the win.
It's a final. North Springs ends its 18-game losing streak with a 13-9 victory over Woodland, which drops to 1-3 on the season. @WBHFSports

Woodland will look to snap its 3-game losing streak next week as it travels to Chamblee for a 7:30 kickoff.
