WESTLAKE VILLAGE — Oaks Christian waited until the waning moments to make its move. With just 23 seconds left after a game-tying field goal minutes prior, Upland was on the Oaks Christian 24-yard line mobilizing to score.

But defensive back Nathan Lenthall intercepted a pass on the 5-yard line and took it back 95 yards to deliver Oaks Christian the 31-24 victory over Upland, and punch a ticket to the CIF Southern Section Division 2 final next Friday against Valencia High School.
