LECANTO — The first set of Thursday’s 5A-6 district tournament final was dominated by Lecanto.

Not the next four, however.

In a battle that took nearly 2 1/2 hours to decide and featured more momentum shifts than most teams experience in a season, the Panthers finally prevailed in five sets over visiting Crystal River, 25-11, 25-19, 20-25, 27-29, 15-12.
