THE SKINNY

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.

TURNING POINT

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.

THE STAR

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.

BY THE NUMBERS

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