  • St. Charles North’s size will challenge Cary-Grove Nov 7, 2014 10:14 PM
    The eye tends to follow the football once it is snapped, but savvy watchers are in for a treat if they pay attention to the interior line battle between No. 1 Cary-Grove and No. 9 St. Charles North in a Class 7A second-round matchup Saturday at 2 p.m. Cary-Grove’s potent triple-option offense has averaged 39 points and 350 rushing yards behind a line that features center Scotty Topole (6-foot-5, 240 pounds), four-year starter Michael Gomez (6-0, 260) and Notre Dame-bound Trevor Ruhland (6-4, 280).

  • Girls volleyball: Elite Eight for Crystal Lake South Nov 7, 2014 4:58 AM
    The greatest players step up their game at the most important times, which is what Crystal Lake South’s Carly Nolan did Thursday night. In her final match on her home court, the senior outside hitter dominated the Class 4A CL South girls volleyball sectional final. The Cincinnati-bound Nolan mostly spiked but sometimes tipped her way to a season-high 14 kills to lead the Gators past rival Cary-Grove 26-24, 25-22.

  • A happy ending and a message from Dundee-Crown’s Kieltyka Nov 6, 2014 10:00 PM
    Dundee-Crown offensive tackle Jake Kieltyka could hear his quarterback calling a play in the huddle, but there was a problem. “I could hear that there were words being said, but I couldn’t understand the play that was being called, what my responsibility was in it,” the West Dundee resident said this week. An honor roll student who had not suffered a concussion this season, Jake had been quietly dealing with such episodes since he was a child. To him, they were normal. So, he did what he always did in such situations: he went about his business until the episode passed.

  • Girls volleyball: Cary-Grove gets past Huntley Nov 5, 2014 5:46 AM
    There were no secrets between division rivals Huntley and Cary-Grove after two previous meetings, so Tuesday’s girls volleyball sectional semifinal came down to execution. Huntley served aggressively and successfully knocked Cary-Grove’s offense out of system for most of the match, but the Trojans’ many talented hitters nevertheless found ways to score out-of-system points to lift Cary-Grove to a 25-23, 25-22 victory in Crystal Lake.

  • Elation, dejection for Fox Valley football teams Oct 26, 2014 12:04 AM
    Saturday’s announcement of the IHSA football playoff pairings left four area teams elated, two dejected. Everyone wearing St. Edward green and gold sported a broad smile at Danny’s on Douglas, a pizzeria in downtown Elgin where approximately 100 members of the St. Edward football community gathered in front of a big screen to find out which opponent the Green Wave would draw in the wake of a 9-0 regular season.

  • Crystal Lake South wins boys soccer regional title Oct 24, 2014 8:49 PM
    When Crystal Lake South defender Jacob Canfield came away from the pack scoring the Gators’ first goal on a header en route to a 3-0 Class 3A Jacobs regional boys soccer championship win over rival Cary-Grove Friday, the junior made a beeline for the fans along the sideline in Algonquin doing none other than the well-known CL South custom Gator Chomp. “It was just kind of in the moment,” Canfield said of the chomp, which occurred after he knocked in an Andrew Perrine ball with 16:30 left in the second half of a scoreless tie. “It just felt right, it just seemed like the right idea, get the fans going, get the boost the guys needed.” But the chomp symbolized plenty more as his nibble led to a Gator-like bite out of the second-seeded Trojans (16-3), as top-seeded CL South (17-5-1), winner of its first regional title since 2010, snagged 2 more goals in the next 5:10 to pack its bags for DeKalb on Wednesday for a 5 p.m. showdown between the winner of the Rockford Boylan regional slated for today at 3 p.m. between Boylan and Rockford Guilford. “It’s a testament to the guys. We knew it wasn’t going to be pretty. You’ve got to grind and stick with it,” said Gators’ coach Brian Allen, who’s won 3 regionals in his 8 seasons at the helm.” We told them at halftime, ‘go play to win, go have fun, if you make mistakes they’re going to happen, but make them in the terms of being aggressive and going for goal’ and I think it paid dividends later.” Canfield’s was a product off a Jefferey Kirshenbaum left corner kick that Kennan Grissom bounced which C-G keeper Ethan Csoka (4 saves) whisked away. The rebound found Andrew Perrine, who found Canfield in the box and that seemed to open the gates for Nate Columbia’s first goal of the season on a ball fed by Andrew Grabowski along the right sideline and Ryan Russman’s (from Michael Woeste), which looked wide at first but bent inside the right post. “I think both teams were feeling each other out, knowing it was going to be a tough game,” Allen said. “When the opportunities presented themselves the kids stepped up when they needed to the most.” South put forth 6 shots in the second half while Cary-Grove won the advantage 13-10. The Trojans did a nice job locking up midfielder Orlando Tapia and Grabowski but lost track of players at the end as South turned to different culprits to take care of business to beat C-G for a second time this season. “It all came down to whoever could grind it out the longest,” Columbia said. “We’ve played like that all season. Once we get the first goal we get the momentum and they just start coming and coming.” “We just didn’t execute. You’ve got to give South credit,” Trojans’ coach Mark Olson said. “Both teams battled and everything but you can’t make mistakes against a good team like that, letting players get in behind you.”
