ELDRIDGE — The Fairfield volleyball team had its hands full on Thursday night. The Trojans were upended in three sets against No. 3 North Scott in their Class 4A Region 8 semifinal, falling 25-8, 25-13 and 25-8.

The Trojans held a 2-0 lead in the third set, but North Scott caught fire and never let up. The Lancers ended the night on a 25-6 run to win the final set by 17.

The Lancers had a big run in the first set, scoring eight in a row to pull past the Trojans en route to a 17-point win.
