It was still pouring rain when the Barons team accepted its district banner.

BARRINGTON -There were cheers, lots of rain and even a broken bone as the Barrington Barons boys won a 5-0 victory on their home turf over Yarmouth Junior High in the junior district championship soccer game on Wednesday, Oct. 22.

The BMHS Barons defeated PEB in their first game with a 6-1 win.  Scoring for the Barons were Joe Atkinson, Kerian O'Connor, Tanner O'Connell, and Jacob Symonds who added three. 

Yarmouth and Shelburne faced off in the first round, with Shelburne falling short in a heartbreaking overtime, losing 2-1 to Yarmouth. 

Despite the stormy weather, and a trip to the hospital for coach Phoebe Cameron and her son Jacob, who broke his ankle, it was otherwise a great day for the Barrington boys. 

Coach Cameron said her team played with determination, sportsmanship and school spirit.

  “I couldn't be more proud of them,” she said.

 
The Barons would scored in the championship game were:  Jacob Symonds, Jackson Atwood, Jude Greenwood, and Kayden Nickerson, who netted two.
