It was about a year ago when Salisbury cousins John Yurconic and Mason Groff teamed up to capture the Piaa 2a Doubles Championship.
But on this day, things are different as the duo battles against one another, with the winner being crowned the 2017 District XI 2a Singles Champion.
A battle of long rallies and great groundstrokes, but in the end it’s Yurconic that prevails beating his cousin, 6-2, 6-0.
He will now head to the Piaa tournament on Memorial Day weekend looking to capture state gold.
Also, heading to the Piaa Tournament is Ben Tauber of Nazareth who beat Daniel Lynn of Liberty 6-3, 6-4 to win the District XI 3a Singles Championship.
