With a semifinal match up on the line, the Panthers were able to get off to a fast start on the road. Woodlawn applied pressure on Neville from the start of the match, with close early scoring opportunities by Ray Sierra and Christopher Enamorado.
The Panthers earned a penalty kick in the 22nd minute when Cody Stevenson received a long ball in the box, made a quick move, and was fouled. Jacob Barnes capitalized from the spot and put the Panthers up 1-0 on the penalty kick.
Elijah Mallory and Jakobie Davis battle a Neville player for the ball in the Panthers quarterfinal victory.
With more chances on goal and great saves by Jakarie Davis, the Panthers found themselves having a throw in deep in Neville territory. Barnes took the throw and with an athletic header by Jakobie Davis, Woodlawn found the back of the net again. With only three minutes to play in the first half, the Panthers led the Tiger 2 scores to none.
“I knew I would have an opportunity to score on a throw in or corner,” Davis stated. “Jacob does great finding me on these set pieces, and I just finished the job.”
Coming out of the second half, the Panthers defense continued to hold strong. Neville scored a late goal, however it was not enough for the Tigers. The Panthers held on to advance to the State Semifinals and will face Lakeshore Saturday at 3:30 in Mandeville.
Two quick second-half goals by senior Jacob Barnes led the Woodlawn soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Riverdale on Thursday in a Division II regional boys soccer playoff match. The Panthers travel to Neville Tuesday for their fourth quarterfinal match in as many years. That match is set to begin at 5:30 pm.
Barnes scored on a penalty kick in the 53rd minute. His left-footed kick found the bottom right corner of the net. Cody Stevenson was held in the box to set up the penalty kick.
His second goal came only four minutes later. Barnes won a ball inside midfield, made a quick move and drilled a 34-yard shot off the bounce to the top left corner of the net for a 2-0 lead in the 57th minute. It was the 14th goal of the season for the Louisiana Tech football signee.
“Jacob, with his power and wind at his back, is going to put the ball away,” said Woodlawn coach Andrew Barnes of his son. “On the second goal, Jacob won the ball at midfield, took a touch and ripped it. We’ve been a better team in the second half all season. We’re happy to be moving on.”
Woodlawn dominated the action in the second half and out shot the visitors 14-1. Stevenson had a shot that hit the post in the second half for the Panthers. Jakarie Davis had one save for the Panthers. Woodlawn defenders Jakobie Davis and J-myri George served as a solid back line.

Woodlawn High School students have an opportunity to get a glimpse of their futures at the Annual College and Career Fair which will be held on Thursday, October 4th.
This annual event is possible through the efforts of Woodlawn High School Counseling Department and Woodlawn Staff working together to host the college fair. The “fair” runs from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the WHS gymnasium.
College fair organizers have worked hard to ensure students will be able to speak directly with people from the colleges in which they are interested. From the larger schools, like Louisiana State University and University of Alabama, to the state’s smaller colleges, such as Centenary Collge and BRCC, just to name a few. Representatives will share information on cost, living arrangements, curriculum, overall campus experience, and more with attendees.
Woodlawn High knows that every student does not fit into the typical college experience and organizers planned for this fact; there are several vocational and technical schools in the lineup as well as the United States Armed Forces branches.
In an effort to further assist parents at Woodlawn High School, the school is offering evening classes for parents. Classes on seven different topics are being offered, with many of the classes being offered on multiple dates to better fit the schedules of our parents. Classes will be located in the Library Computer Lab.
With the help of administration and faculty, parents will be given information on different topics during each class.
