    Broncos suffer first loss of season

    It was a classic trap game, and Barrington fell into it.

    The Broncos were coming off of three straight road wins, including a stunner over then-No. 3 Maine South. They were ranked as high as No. 2 in Chicagoland. They were playing their first home game in front of a packed house at Barrington Community Stadium.  It was Senior Night.

    But Barrington came out a little flat under the lights and Evanston made them pay. The Wildkits controlled the game from beginning to end and posted a 32-13 win to drop the Broncos to 3-1 on the season.

    Barrington rallies to stun No. 3 Maine South

    There are wins. There are big wins. And then there is the kind of win that Barrington earned on Friday night.

    The Broncos scored 16 unanswered points to stun No. 3 Maine South 26-23 in a thriller between Top 15 teams. It was the third straight road win for Barrington, which is now 3-0.

    Barrington trailed 23-10 with 4:59 left in the third quarter when they sparked the rally to win the game. Will Hutchinson hit his second field goal and Adam Brokke fell on a botched punt snap in the end zone to pull the Broncos to within 23-20.

    Then came the big strike: a 54-yard double-pass for a touchdown. QB Tommy Fitzpatrick threw a screen to WR EJ Darlington, who turned and fired a strike to a wide open Timmy Lowe for the score with just 2:58 left. The defense, led by Mark Di Iorio and Kevin Meckert, then held on for the win.

    Darlington also had an 86-yard kickoff return for a TD to open the second half.

    Not even a weather delay could slow down Barrington.
