Both the Fillies and Rams entered their Bison Classic matchup at Buffalo Grove unbeaten. It was Barrington (4-0) emerging still unblemished. The Fillies made a few more plays down the stretch to knock off a good Grayslake Central (4-1) team. 


Grayslake Central trailed by as much as 10 in the third quarter. But the Rams chipped away at the deficit and when senior guard Carson Sparkman stole a Fillies pass and finished with a layup, Barrington’s lead was just 44-40 with 4:30 left. But a 6-2 Fillies run over the next three minutes put the game out of reach. 


Megan Talbot. The sophomore forward played some of her best basketball in the final period for Barrington. She scored six of her team-high 16 in the last 3:30 of the game, including 4-of-4 shooting on free throws. Senior Angie Kirchoff added 15 for the Fillies. Grayslake Central was led by Sparkman, who had 23 points. 


Barrington made 17-of-20 free throws while Grayslake Central shot 11-of-20 from the line. 


“[Staying] poised is one of our goals every game. We want to stay in control and not lose it when things are going downhill. We could have been more secure in the end but it still ended up positive for us.” — Kirchoff
