The Bishop Amat and Los Altos girls soccer teams fell a game short of meeting in last year’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4 championship – both ousted in the semifinals and ruining a much-anticipated rematch after a 0-0 tie earlier that season.
And what a season it was, the soccer powers with a combined record of 52-3-2 while outscoring their opponents 207-19. Although a year late, the rematch finally came on Thursday at Los Altos in front of a better-than-expected December crowd.
