If the area is small and you're sure you have removed all of the wet balsa core you can seal the slot from the bottom and epoxy from the top. Use epoxy thickened with colloidal silica. After it has set recut the slot. You can drill exploratory holes from the bottom to check the extent of the wet core and to make sure you have removed all of it.
