SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — The District 4 Class 2A boy team tennis semifinal between Selinsgrove and Montoursville was about as close as could be at the South Williamsport Community Park.
Unfortunately, Montoursville was able to outlast the Seals, 3-2.
The match fell to the No. 2 doubles teams, as the teams were tied with just that match to be completed.
The Selinsgrove team of Luke Lybarger and Ky Reiland fought off six match points in the match, before falling in a third-set tiebreak to the team of Noah Shaffer and Dominic Young.
The Seals got their wins at No. 2 and No. 3 singles.
