SHARE Barrington edges Buffalo Grove on last-minute penalty kick

Barrington 1, Buffalo Grove 0


With 46 seconds remaining, Barrington senior midfielder Logan Morris scored the only goal of the match on a penalty kick, which was awarded after an inadvertent hand ball in the box.


With just a minute to play, Barrington led a three-on-two counter attack against Buffalo Grove’s defense. A rebound in the box led to the penalty kick and kept the game from heading to overtime.


Not only did Morris bury the penalty kick in the back of the net, but he was around the goal all game long. His bicycle kick in the 43rd minute narrowly missed over the crossbar.


Barrington had the majority of the game’s offensive chances. Its offense had seven corner kicks in the game to Buffalo Grove’s one.


“(Coach) told us, ’Focus more on the runs we were making and be loud, because we’re not a very loud team. … It’s our game, we need to score goals, that’s what we need to do to win.’ And we got one in the final 46 seconds.” – Barrington junior defender Giles Phillips on coach Scott Steib’s halftime directions
