But, this time, no tie-breaker was needed.

The Tigard High School boys tennis team, which needed a total sets-won tie-breaker to get a (4-4, 9-8) win over rival Tualatin earlier in the season, came away with a 5-3 victory over the Timberwolves in the Three Rivers League dual rematch, held April 23 at Tualatin High School.

The Tigers did most of their damage in doubles competition, winning all four of those matches against Tualatin.

Tigard's lone singles win was a big one, as senior Alex Thoren came back from a 4-1 first-set deficit to get a hard-fought 7-5, 6-3 win over Tualatin's Andrew Monkarsh.
