Shady Side Academy's Naman Dua and Tanay Kumata got hot at the right time in the WPIAL Class AAA doubles tournament.
Not only did they upset the No. 2 seed in the bracket, Miguel Ascencio and Ryan Farrell of Peters Township, they beat third-seeded Charlie Strohl and Christian Vietmeier of Mt. Lebanon to earn a spot in the championship match.
Now the Indians, who were the seventh seed in the WPIAL, have to hope they have some more of that magic left.
Dua, a freshman, and Kumata, a junior, are both making their state finals debuts and won't get a pushover in the first round. The two will have to take on District 2 champion Devin Paulison and Kevin Osczepinski of Delaware Valley, who are also making their first appearance in PIAA tournament.
