Hareem Zain and Sam Bailey won 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 doubles before Aidan Finnerty and Garrett Benner, despite losing the first set 6-2, bounced back with 7-5 wins in the next two sets to win at No. 2.

Rob Smith and Brady Fries picked up identical 6-1, 6-2 wins at Nos. 1 and 2 singles for Selinsgrove (2-0).

“It was a great match,” said Selinsgrove coach Duke Fravel.

Bloomsburg falls to 1-1.
