PALATINE — Even a 27-0 victory can have its tight moments when players have to step up. When Barrington led only 7-0 in the first half Friday against Palatine, the offensive line was up to the challenge.
The Broncos converted two fourth downs on a scoring drive, including fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line. The offensive line deserves much of the credit, especially for blocks by center Vito Anzalone and left tackle Zach Ingram on Nate King’s scoring run.
Anzalone and Ingram, both seniors, anchor a formidable line that has helped propel the Broncos to a 7-1 record, 3-1 in the Mid-Suburban League West Division. That’s good for a three-way tie for first place with Schaumburg and Fremd heading into the final game of the regular season, at home Friday against Hoffman Estates. The offense has averaged 32 points per game, with a balance of running and passing.
