Second Round… who’s still standing?

November 7, 2015


Marist 59, Barrington 56
One week after Halloween we had a thriller in Barrington

Things came to an end with senior James Dunican pulled down his only reception of the game — a 3-yard toss over the middle from quarterback Brendan Skalitzky with 16 seconds remaining, Marist pulled off an stunner.

In a contest that featured a combined 1,231 yards, Barrington (9-2) appeared to be the last team standing. They went ahead 55-52 on quarterback Johnny Davidson’s 1-yard plunge with 1 minute, 8 seconds left to complete a 13-play, 65-yard drive that featured a fourth-and-24 conversion from Davidson to Jake Zyzda.

But Marist’s Seamus Glascott returned the ensuing kickoff 45 yards to Barrington territory. Seven plays later, Skalitzky called Dunican’s number.

“We practice that, I think we did it against Joliet Catholic, we waited all game,” Skalitzky said. :Ran it and it was perfect execution. James is probably one of the hardest workers on the team. He’s so selfless, he blocks for everyone. I’m so glad it went to him. It was a great catch.”

Skalitzky accounted for 633 total yards (445 passing, 188 rushing) and eight touchdowns (five passing, three rushing).

The RedHawks Darshon McCullough finished the contest with  5 receptions, 207 yards, 3 TDs.

Barrington’s Davidson finished going 14-for-21, 217 yards, 2 TDs and 18 carries, 112 yards, TD.

Marist (7-4) will play at Oswego (9-2) in next week’s quarterfinals.
