With one star player double-teamed and another mired in foul trouble, host Winters Mill last night turned to a varsity newcomer to help thwart an upset bid by cross-town rival Westminster. Cammeron Woodyard, a 6-foot-5 junior forward, scored a team-high 16 points to go along with seven rebounds and four blocks, as the Falcons, a Class 2A state semifinalist last season, built an early 19-point lead, then held off the Owls' late rally in a 64-51 win. "He played a really complete game," said Winters Mill coach Dave Herman of Woodyard, who last year led the school's junior varsity in scoring.
