Both games Monday night were very similar for the Cary-Grove girls volleyball team.

The Trojans fell behind early in both games against Jacobs, rallied to tie midway through the game and then had enough to hold off the Golden Eagles.

Cary-Grove advanced to the Class 4A Dundee-Crown regional semifinals with a 25-22, 25-20 victory over Jacobs in Carpentersville.

"(Jacobs' Katie) Mahoney lit it up and it shellshocked us," Trojans coach Patty Langanis said. "It was a disastrous start for us. Jacobs came out ready to go. I'm happy we were able to recover."

The fourth-seeded Trojans (21-15) advance to face No. 1 seed Crystal Lake South (32-3) at 6 p.m. today.

Jacobs (20-16) jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the opening game and led 12-6 after a Bridget Wallenberger kill. The fifth-seeded Golden Eagles' lead was 4, 15-11, before C-G went on a 5-0 run to take a 16-15 lead. Two tip kills from Meghan Seymour, a kill each from Abby Schebel and Morgan Lee and an ace from Delaney Bayer gave the Trojans their first lead of the match.

On C-G's second game point, Kayli Trausch's kill earned the Trojans the first game win.

"We worked very hard over the weekend to prepare for Cary-Grove," Jacobs coach Lisa Dwyer said. "I was very proud of the way we showed up to play."

The Golden Eagles scored 4 of the first 5 points of the second game. The Trojans tied the game at 12-12 and the game went back and forth until the game was tied at 19-19. Then Lee had back-to-back aces and a Trausch block gave C-G a 22-19 lead. A Trausch kill made it 23-20 before consecutive errors from Jacobs ended the match.

"When we come in aggressive with our serves and everyone is on and we get it going, it really helps us," said Lee, who had 4 of C-G's 8 aces. "We all feed off each other."

Schebel led the Trojans with 7 kills. Trausch and Sarah Graham each added 5 kills. Seymour finished with 26 assists.

Mahoney, who had 2 kills in the first 4 points of the match, had 8 kills for Jacobs. Kyla Fitzsimmons added 5 kills. Mackie Traub, Jacobs' only senior, had 20 assists and 7 digs.
