JON CHASE/FOR THE GLOBE

Concord-Carlisle’s Julia Cancio defeated Winchester’s Karen McKeough for the second straight postseason.

There was clear tension between the Winchester and Concord-Carlisle girls’ tennis teams at the MIAA Division 2 North final Sunday at Rahanis Park in Burlington. The Patriots prevailed, 4-1, ousting Winchester a year after ending the Sachems’ five-year state championship reign.

“Winning the first time around was so exciting because we broke Winchester’s incredible streak,” Concord-Carlisle coach Bob Furey said. “This year everyone expected us to win, so we faced a different kind of pressure.”

As North champion, Concord-Carlisle will face South champion Hingham in the state final Tuesday at Lexington, aiming now for a streak of its own after taking the title last season.

The Patriots swept all three singles matches, with sophomore Bella Stone clinching the team victory in the second position with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over senior Chloe Georgaklis.

“They’ve been solid all year and they were spectacular today,” Furey said. “Their net play and their volleys were just dead on.”

Junior Julia Cancio, who won the North singles title in the 2012 individual tournament, defeated Sachems senior Karen McKeough, 6-1, 6-1. Cancio also defeated McKeough, 6-2, 6-0, in Concord-Carlise’s win last year.

“The win was really fulfilling,” Cancio said. “We definitely wanted a repeat and we knew they’d have a strong team again.”

Freshman Meredith Block defeated Sachems junior Olivia Davis, 6-2, 6-1, in third singles.

The second doubles team consisting of Sarah and Jessica Lee secured another win as they rallied to defeat Sophie Hibben and Hailey Hoffman, 6-2, 6-3.

Winchester’s win came from the first doubles team of Janie Weber and Lena Pfeifenberger, who defeated Martina Daeli and Sarah Yang, 6-4, 6-3.

“Concord-Carlisle is tough,” Winchester coach Paul Sughrue said. “We really had to play some of our best tennis to win, and it just didn’t happen.”
