Girls Soccer Top Ten
1. Bishop Amat (24-0-1) – I know I have covered better girls soccer teams, but not one that has been this dominant in terms of won-loss record and goals against average, 106-5. If they cruise through CIF and state like this, I may have to reconsider the first part of this summation.
2. Los Altos (20-1-2) – Okay, this might be the second most dominant team on paper, a 73-9 goals against average. I know Walnut had some dynamte teams when they won three straight titles this decade, but were they this impressive on paper?
3. Walnut (17-3-2) – As hot as the top two have been, the Mustangs might be the hottest over the last month, having secured ten straight shutouts. But for an entire season, you have to give it up to the top two.
4. Charter Oak (18-4) – Four straight wins in the Miramonte are convincing enough. The Chargers may not be as good as the top three, but they’re looking like a solid No. 4.
5. Sierra Vista (20-2) — For me, the Dons will have to prove themselves in the Division VII playoffs, where they’re ranked No. 1. They’re obviously good, but given not one team in the Montview has a winning record, just how good?
6. Glendora (11-9-3) — Finishing the Sierra strong with four straight wins, including dramatic 4-3 win over Chino last week.
7. St. Lucy’s (12-9-2) — Not a good year by their standards, but it appears they can still finish third in the Sierra and make the playoffs.
8. San Dimas (13-3-2) — They were obviously better than Northview when I saw them last week, way much more depth. At No. 8 in Div. VI, they certainly have as good a shot as anyone at winning a divisional title.
9. Bonita (9-6-3) — Losing to Los Altos and Charter Oak is nothing to be ashamed of, nor is finishing third in the Miramonte.
10. Northview (12-5-2) — A little shaky in the back, and not scoring like they were earlier in the season. That happens when teams start doubling your goal-scoring striker.
