THE SKINNY

The Barrington girls soccer team’s 2-1 win over Loyola in penalty kicks Thursday was so evenly played that 100 minutes weren’t enough to decide the outcome. Tied 1-1 in Barrington at the end of regulation in the quarterfinals of the Naperville Invitational,Barrington (11-1-2) and Loyola (15-2-1) played two 10-minute overtime periods without a score. That sent the game into a shootout. Each team then converted four of its five allotted shots in the first sequence of penalty kicks. In the second sequence, a round-robin format, both teams scored on their first attempt. On the Fillies’ second attempt, Barrington’s Nicole Niro scored. Loyola’s second try was stuffed by Barrington keeper Hannah Luedtke, resulting in aFillies victory.

TURNING POINT

With 22 minutes remaining in the first half, Fillies senior midfielder Mia Calamari was given a red card for a trip of a Ramblers player just in front of the Barrington goal box. The Fillies played the rest of the match short-handed (10 players) and still came away with a victory. “Gutsy, gutsy. We dug down so deep today and got a result. This is the proudest I’ve been of the team so far,” coach Ryan Stengren said.

THE STAR

Loyola senior midfielder Tori Iatarola scored the Ramblers’ lone goal with 25:41 left in the match.

Not only does the bestselling, genre-mixing hitmaker himself not come across as a real person, the film never tries to help him. Fans won’t learn anything new, and the curious may even be turned off.
