Upland gets some insurance

Gianni Olivas just scored on a 3-yard run with 2:01 left, putting Upland up 19-7 after the Highlanders missed the 2-point conversion. The Highlanders marched 78 yards on 10 plays, all on the ground, to get the score. So barring a miracle – and considering that the Los Osos offense hasn’t scored on Upland in 7-plus quarters, that’s exactly what it would take – Upland is set to win its first CIF crown since 2000.
