Jordan Potts finished with 15 points, Trey Burke and Devon Scott both scored 14 and Jalen Robinson added 11 for Northland, which never trailed during the final three quarters as it improved to 19-1.
The Scots, who are 16-4 heading into the Division I district tournament, got 11 points apiece from Fred Hardgrove and Rico Spears and 10 from Adam McCall. Their leading scorer, Austin Traylor, was held to nine.
It was Walnut Ridge's first appearance in the 33-year history of the City championship game.
