It was worth the wait for the Palatine boys volleyball team. The Pirates were supposed to host undefeated Barrington a week ago Tuesday, but an electrical problem forced the closing of the school building and the postponement of the match until Thursday. And in a wild scene reminiscent of the state final tournament, Palatine defeated visiting Barrington 25-15, 21-25, 25-23 in front of a large, enthusiastic crowd to earn a share of the Mid-Suburban West crown with the Broncos. Both teams finished with 9-1 division records and split their season series, each match going three games.
