Girls Soccer: With Bishop Amat and Los Altos No. 1 and 2 in Division IV, they could meet again

Bishop Amat win over St. Joseph from Long Beach PT: In the collective minds of the St. Joseph High girls soccer team, Monday’s match against undefeated and CIF Southern Section Division IV top-ranked Bishop Amat was seen as a showdown, a chance to make a real statement. But for some reason or another, the Jesters didn’t come out as ready as need be and fell victim to the visiting Lancers in a 6-2 Del Rey League affair.

Above: St. Joseph’s Hannah Bredesen, right, battles with Bishop Amat’s Miranda Joya for a loose ball in the Lancers’ 6-2 win.

Girls Soccer Top Ten
1. Bishop Amat (19-0-1) – Can you remember the last time a team was this dominant? They give up two goals against St. Joseph, now they have just outscored opponents, 79-5. What a bunch of slackers, šŸ™‚
2. Los Altos (17-1-1) – Conqs coach Chris Reeder admits they keep a close eye on Bishop Amat, whom they tied on the road for all of you keeping track.
3. Walnut (13-3-2) – The shutout streak is at five and counting. Let’s be honest, the top two are legit, but Walnut would give them both a run for their money.
4. St. Lucy’s (9-6-2) — Suffered first league loss to Ayala 1-0, but still in thick of league race.,
5. Bonita (8-5-2) — After a nonleague game against Walnut, they will find out where they stack up with games against Charter Oak and Los Altos.
6. Charter Oak (14-3) – Another team that didn’t play last week, but fasten up, they host Los Altos today.
7. San Dimas (7-3-2) — What’s most impressive is they only have allowed 11 goals this season.
8. Sierra Vista (15-2) — Like the girls basketball team, nobody is touching the Dons in the Montview.
9. Glendora (7-7-3) — Tartans still 2-1 in Sierra, with plenty of time left to still fight for the league title.
10. Northview (9-4-1) — Since they didn’t play also, I repeat: Vikings forward Khalalah Todd has 37 goals, 13 shy of the big 50, which would put her in rare company. After tying San Dimas 2-2 on the road, the Vikes have the inside track to the VVL too.

  • Here is the story of the game for those interested in the Bishop Amat – St. Josephs game.

  • diogenes

    In a game closer, but decisive, than the 5-1 score showed, visiting Los Altos topped Charter Oak Tuesday for a 3-0 Miramonte League record. The Chargers mounted attack after attack on the LA goal only to be turned away time and again. The game was played in rain the whole afternoon, increasing to a driving downpour the final 15 minutes. LA’s multi-pronged attack pierced the CO goal three times in the first period and twice more in the second. Both teams are slated to continue league play Thursday.

    Yes, Saints have only allowed 11 goals this year. And what is that goalie’s name? Oh thats right – Rachel Jones.

    Not sure why San Dimas girls are ranked so high. They aren’t impressive at all. They don’t play any repectable teams in Pre-Season and when they do play a quality team like Bonita, they get their butts kicked 4-2. They are in one of the weakest leagues in the area and have a Coach who has no idea what she is doing!! Too bad for the San Dimas girls, as they have so much talent over there.

  • Veronica

    Yes Bonita Lost bad to Walnut the other night. But those who are smart, won’t read too much into this win for Walnut. The Bonita Coach was smart and rested/sat out ALL of his best players/starters. Since this wasn’t a league game and they have Charter Oak and Los Altos for the next 2 games, this was the smartest thing he could have done. We will see what happens next time Bonita and Walnut play. I’m confident the outcome will be much different, no matter who wins!

    Bonita did beat San Dimas 4-2, but if you were at the game you know it was 2-2 until very late in the game. From what I understand Bonita was shaken by the fact that San Dimas scored 2 goals against them. All those “respectable teams” Bonita played in pre-season? What was the highest number of goals scored against Bonita? Two. The same number of goals San Dimas scored.

    SDHS doesn’t play any respectable teams in pre-season? What about Charter Oak? Isn’t Charter Oak in Bonita’s league? That would be yes. San Dimas beat Charter Oak, at Charter Oak, 4-2. How many goals did Bonita score on Charter Oak? That would be one. So a team from your own league, that you only scored one goal on, is not respectable?

    What about South Hills? South Hills is leading the San Antonio league. San Dimas only lost to South Hills 0-1. Respectable?

    You might also remember that San Dimas is Division 6, not Division 4 or 2 like a lot of these teams.

    The Valle Vista may not be the Miramonte, but there’s nothing these girls can do about the league they play in, other than take care of business, like beating Baldwin Park (3-0, 8-0), Ganesha (3-0), and Covina (6-0). San Dimas tied Northview (2-2), which is ranked by CIFSS and features blog favorite Khalalah Todd, one of the nation’s scoring leaders. Impressed yet?

    Thanks for the compliment about having a lot of talent at San Dimas. There is a lot of talent: Jones, Jimenez, McKee, Lambert, and Duran, to name just a few, and they are impressive. And the coach is improving.

    Why be a hater?

  • saintsgirlsr4real2

    Well said Anon – Thanks for the recap. And that Baldwin Park team went 0-0 against that scoring leader so they cant be that bad. Rivalries can be tricky. Lets see what happens next year Bonita.

    1/28/10–Los Altos 2, Wilson 1. Next up for LA is Bonita at home. home and away with Diamond Ranch, and the closer at home with Charter Oak. LA continues to impress against increasingly forceful opposition, throwing everything against them. Remaining league games are going to be a real challenge.

    I guess resting his starters/best players didn’t help with the outcome of the Charter Oak game. Maybe it will help against LA.

    San Dimas, San Dimas. Great talent with ALL those club players and you actually should be doing great. I know for a fact that your players tried to get of your coach last year and the majority hate her!! She is horrible and that’s a fact if you ever see her training sessions/practices. Her substitutions are a joke. And I was scouting at the Bonita/San Dimas game and fortunately for San Dimas, Bonita has a very young and inexperienced coach too. Battle of the BAD caoches and Bonita still dominated. They didn’t look shaken at all. Must have been all the TEARS from the San Dimas girls after they lost. Again, Great Talent at San Dimas, just a shame they should be undefeated and entered into some REAL tournaments prior to the season.

    Bonita 1, Los Altos 1. How’s that for a result. Let’s see you play a few quality teams and win. WHY DON’T you tell your Coach to take your team to the Claremont Tournament next year. Then we will see how good you really are so you can earn that Ranking!!

    CO Fan? Or perhaps I should say, Bonita Parent?

    What’s with all the hate towards San Dimas soccer and their coach? The girls and parents support their coach. Why do you care? What’s the deal with the coach? You and Veronica keep heaping on the hate. What’s the deal? Did I miss a negative posting from San Dimas about Bonita? I didn’t see one. I know I didn’t post anything.

    How do you know for a fact that the team tried to get rid of the coach last year? Inquiring minds want to know. Even if that was true, that was LAST year, as you said. This year is different.

    From what I understand the Bonita team was upset to have allowed SDHS to score at all, much less score 2. Something about not having been scored upon by SDHS for a few years.

    You’ve spent time scouting the SDHS practices. Why? You must know some of the girls. Why would you want to say such mean-spirited things about girls you know? You compliment the talent on the team and then knock the team down.

    This is a high school sports blog. High school sports, not professional sports. Teenagers, not adult professional athletes. How about giving praise and props instead of hatred and hostility?

    It sounds as if you have some kind of issue with the coach, yet you’re taking it out on the girls and the team. Leave the girls out of it. Address the matter privately with the coach, rather than publicly spewing venom at the innocent team members.
