Bishop Amat football has a new opponent in Week 2. Coach Steve Hagerty said Long Beach Jordan backed out of its commitment to play Bishop Amat at home in Week 2, but the Lancers quickly found a replacement, setting up a game with La Mirada at Kiefer Stadium, instead. I don’t know how good La Mirada will be next season, the Suburban League champions sent five players to Division I schools, including Isaac Luatua, who’s going to Alabama. La Mirada faded in the Southeast playoffs, however, losing in the first-round against Muir. But they did give Southwest Division champ La Habra all it could handle, losing 23-17. In any case, La Mirada typically travels well, so this is a good pick-up for the Lancers. Also, Bishop Amat’s game on the road against Venice in Week 5 has been moved to Thursday instead of Friday. For those curious about Amat, a Thursday night game allows the rest of the Valley to take a sneak peak.
