NATICK — There were more than a few times it looked like Manchester Essex’s Brittany Collens would capture the Girls’ North tennis singles title Saturday at the Natick Racquet Club.
Hopkinton’s Denny LaMachia refused to be the runner-up however, rallying to defeat Collens, 7-6 (9-7), 1-6, 7-6 (7-2).
In the doubles final, Winchester’s Janie Weber and Lena Pfeifenberger didn’t allow any comebacks, defeating Concord-Carlisle’s Sarah Yang and Martina Daelli, 6-3, 6-4.
The Sachems’ duo took home the North doubles title in commanding fashion after playing for three hours in the semifinals. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
