Barrington junior boys win first ever regional soccer title

Published on October 31, 2014

Barrington -The BMHS Barons captured the regional championship title with a score of 1-0 over Hebbville on Thursday.

Jackson Atwood scored the only goal for the Baron Squad and Tanner O'Connell had the shutout in net.  The boys played with heart and determination, and despite being down four instrumental players, the Barons still came out on top. 

  In the first round BMHS defeated Clare 2 -1 with Kayden Nickerson and Tommy Willis scoring. 

Both games played by the Barons were battles to the end.  Tanner O'Connell was the difference in net, and without him, it could have been a different story.

 Coach Phoebe Cameron, who was at the IWK with her son Jacob, who broke his ankle in the district tournament, said they were still at the games in spirit on the phone and texting the entire time.

Cameron said the team is made up of a special group of BMHS boys.

“They play with spirit and sportmanship and never give up,” she said.  “I couldn't be more proud of them.”

 The win saw BMHS bring home its first-ever Junior Boys Soccer regional banner.  The Junior Girls last won it 22 years ago.

Not surprisingly, one of the star players of that team was Phoebe Cameron.
