    Broncos blanked by Fremd

    It was a case of deja vu for Barrington on Friday night. And not the good kind.

    For the second year in a row, Fremd shut out Barrington to claim a MSL West win. What's more, the Vikings won by the identical score, 14-0, to hand the Broncos their second straight loss.

    Fremd dominated on a cold, windy night with a punishing ground game, led by Brian Hardy's 168 rushing yards,  Barrington, meanwhile, turned the ball over three times and could never get into a rhythm offensively. Quinn Ketel led the Broncos with 76 yards on 12 carries.

    The Broncos (4-3, 1-2 MSL West) now need to win both of their remaining regular-season games, against Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg, to clinch a playoff bid.

    Conant spoils Barrington's Homecoming

    This MSL West Homecoming showdown came down to fourth-quarter, fourth-down plays. Conant converted its big one for the winning touchdown. Barrington failed to convert its two and lost.

    Malik Frederick ran for 146 yards and a touchdown to lead the Cougars to a 21-14 win that snapped Barrington's four-game winning streak.

    Barrington rolled the dice on a a fourth-and-2 at its own 45 with about nine minutes left and quarterback Tommy Fitzpatrick was stopped a yard short of the line to gain. Conant took over and drove to the Barrington 27. There, on a fourth-and-3, Cougar QB Giuseppe Dugo raced around the right end for a TD and a 21-14 lead.

    The Broncos weren't done yet, however. They drove all the way to the Conant 6 in the closing minute, but Fitzpatrick's fourth-down pass sailed over E.J. Darlington's head with 30 seconds left.

    The loss dropped Barrington to 4-2 (1-1 MSL West). Conant (6-0, 2-0)  is now in the driver's seat in the conference.

    Barrington has been playing football since 1924. Last Friday night, the Broncos won the 500th game in school history.

    Barrington routed Buffalo Grove 42-0 for the milestone win on Friday night at Barrington Community Stadium. It took a week long than they would have liked, but the Broncos bounced back from a tough loss to Warren in the season opener to dominate the Bison from whistle to whistle.

    The Broncos lost their season opener, 16-6, on Friday night at Warren in a defensive slugfest.

    Warren jumped out to a 10-0 first-quarter lead and the struggling Barrington offense didn't get on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter, when QB Tommy Fitzpatrick hit WR E.J. Darlington for a 20-yard scoring strike.

    Fitzpatrick threw for 219 yards, Darlington finished with seven catches for 101 yards and Quinn Ketel rushed for 81 yards to pace Barrington. Defensively, LB Dayven Shinhoster led Barrington with 12 tackles, while S Adam Brokke accounted for 11. Lukas Van Nell had three tackles for loss.
