Ayden Santana saved the 4th Oxnard penalty kick to set off a frenzy of a celebration as Orange Lutheran beat the Yellowjackets 2-1 on PKs to advance to the program's first championship appearance in 24 years.
OLu got the scoring started in the 38th minute when Jordi Pineda scored to put the Lancers in front. It stayed that way until the 58th minute when Oxnard leveled the game at 1.
After two scoreless golden goal overtimes that saw a flurry of chances for both sides, the game went to penalty kicks.
After the Lancers buried both of their first two opportunities, Santana made the first of his saves by diving to his left. OLu made their next two to go up 4-2, and the kick to keep Oxnard alive was then saved by Santana to secure the victory.
OLu will play Littlerock (Lancaster) in the CIF Finals next weekend. The date and time are TBD.
