Shaler won its second consecutive section match in a 3-2 victory over Plum at Fox Chapel High School.
The Titans got wins from No. 2 singles Tanner Bradford, No. 3 singles Sam Bens and No. 2 doubles Zach Sarnowski and Luke Grunden to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Shaler (3-2, 2-1) would secure a playoff spot with victories over Allderdice tomorrow and Woodland Hills on Thursday.
At No. 1 singles, Jake Jashinski lost a hard-fought match in two sets, the second coming in a 6-4 defeat. The No. 1 doubles pair of Joe Soranno and Matt Potock dropped its match after a slow start. The seniors rebounded to play a strong second set but lost in a tiebreaker.
With Bradford scheduled to miss tomorrow’s match, Shaler will turn to Sean Muenz at No. 3 singles, with Sam playing No. 2. The doubles teams will remain intact.
