Losing on Homecoming Weekend is sad. Losing on Homecoming Weekend on a last-second Hail Mary is even worse, and that’s almost what happened to Palatine (Ill.) in their game against Barrington (Ill.)
Barrington completed the Hail Mary in the end-zone as time expired, which would have given them a 30-26 victory.
However, Barrington committed a penalty on the last play, wiping off the touchdown and giving Palatine a 26-24 win on Homecoming.
We’re not sure who was more excited, the Palatine players on the field or the announcers in the booth.
