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.

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,
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.
