The Wolves led by 10 with two-and-a-half minutes remaining, but Oak Hill fought back and tied the game at 75-75 and had the ball with 15 seconds remaining.
Monterey forced a turnover and put up a shot with seconds remaining that was no good, but Cassels grabbed the rebound and was fouled just before the horn sounded.
"That's one of those games you have to have if you are going to compete for the district title," said Monterey coach Eric Richard. "We played one of our best games of the year, especially offensively. The only downfall was losing the lead late."
