    Barrington routs Palatine to close regular season

    Barrington beat its old nemesis to head into the playoffs on a three-game winning streak.

    Seniors Michael Curran and Michael Bedard led the Broncos to a 42-21 rout of Palatine in the regular season finale. It was Barrington's first win over Palatine at Barrington Community Stadium since 2006.

    Curran ran for 108 yards and four touchdowns and Bedard added three touchdown catches to provide all of the Broncos' scoring.

    The win was the third straight for the Broncos (6-3) and gave them an odd symmetry to the season: they opened the season with a three-game wining streak, then suffered a three-game losing streak before winning the final three to head into the playoffs with some momentum.

    Next up, playoffs!

    Broncos blitz Hoffman to snap losing streak

    The Broncos are back!

    Barrington snapped a three-game losing streak and handed Hoffman Estates its first loss of the season with a 41-15 win that took more than 20 hours to complete due to a weather postponement.

    The game began on Friday night at 6 p.m. and was suspended after three quarters due to a thunderstorm with Barrington holding a commanding 31-7 lead. The game resumed on Sunday at 2 p.m. and the Broncos finished the job.

    Barrington looked a lot more like the team that started the season 3-0. There were plenty of highlights, including a spectacular leaping touchdown grab by E.J. Darlington, a 60-yard scoring run by Darlington, a 47-yard field goal by Will Hutchinson and a Kevin Meckert touchdown off of a blocked punt.

    Now 4-3 (1-2 MSL West), Barrington faces Schaumburg next Friday night.

    Broncos shut out by Fremd on Homecoming

    It's time for a little soul searching for Barrington.

    The Broncos lost their third straight game, to archrival Fremd, 14-0, to put a damper on Homecoming Saturday. It was Fremd's first win over Barrington since 2012, and the first victory at Barrington Community Stadium since 2009. 

    Fremd's defense limited Barrington to just 165 yards of total offense and picked off three Bronco passes. Will Josten's pick-6 in the fourth quarter turned out to be the score that put the game out of reach.

    Barrington (3-3, 0-2 MSL West) has now lost three straight after winning its first three games of the season. It's the exact opposite for Fremd, which has won three in a row after dropping three to start the year.

    Barrington needs two more wins to clinch a playoff spot.

    Freshmen White played its first game of the year against Fremd on Thursday! Score wasn't kept for the two-quarter game, but the fact that the team was formed due to an influx of new players is great news for the program. The White team has three more games scheduled.

    Barrington loses second straight

    After winning three straight to start the season, Barrington finds itself on a two-game losing streak after losing to Conant, 21-12, in the MSL West opener for both teams.

    Barrington drew first blood on a 54-yard touchdown run by E.J. Darlington. But Conant would use its ball-control, double-wing offense to take control of the game.

    The Cougars had 80- and 86-yard touchdown drives in the first half to take a 14-12 lead heading into the locker room. The only score in the second half was a Conant touchdown to cap a 19-play, 76-yard drive.

    In all, Conant outgained Barrington 312-233 and had a 29:49 to 18:11 edge in time of possession.

    Barrington (3-2) will regroup to take on Fremd on Sept. 29 for Homcoming.

    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.  



    Here's what Chicago media had to say about the game:

    The Freshmen lost a heartbreaker to the Wildcats, 22-20, to fall to 2-2 on the year.


    The Varsity Killer Bs beat Evanston 46-36 in a wild shootout to improve their record to 1-1.

    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.
