Barrington 27, Palatine 0

THE SKINNY

Barrington used its ground game to take a 14-0 halftime lead Friday behind two rushing touchdowns from Nate King and then went to the air in the second half as quarterback Daniel Kubiuk was 14-for-21 passing for 181 yards and a touchdown.

TURNING POINT

The Broncos (7-1, 3-1 MSL West) converted two fourth downs on their second scoring drive, including a fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line (a King touchdown run) to take a 14-0 lead.

THE STAR

This game was dominated on the defensive side by the Broncos’ 6-foot-4, 230-pound outside linebacker Colin Castagna. The senior had 14 tackles, seven of which were for a loss, including two quarterback sacks. Castagna also harassed Palatine (4-4, 1-3) quarterback Nick Orlando into 5-for-14 passing. He added a blocked punt for good measure.

BY THE NUMBERS

Palatine was limited to 183 yards of offense, 42 of which came on the game’s final drive. The Broncos registered 11 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Barrington had 122 yards on the ground and 181 through the air for 303 total yards. Pirates running back Christopher Cornelius had 65 yards rushing on 10 carries. This is the first time that Barrington has beaten Palatine in six years.

QUOTABLE

“It’s about playing hard every play and giving effort. Everyone was playing well tonight. To get a shutout against a team that we haven’t beaten in six years is really remarkable.” — Castagna
