Knocked down but never out, defending state champion Benet is still standing. Down a game and 15-10 in the second to Libertyville, the Redwings answered the bell to pull out a 20-25, 25-21, 25-13 win in Friday's Class 4A semifinal at Redbird Arena. "Anytime you come down here you gotta expect to go three games, and that's what we want. We want to turn it into a slugfest," Benet coach Brad Baker said. "If we're going to be here for an hour and a half, that's fine with us. They pushed us and we were able to fight back and pull it out."
