Bishop Amat girls soccer team humbled

Bishop Amat’s girls soccer team lost all three games in the Mater Dei girls soccer tournament, losing to Esperanza (2-1), San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic (4-1) and Dana Hills (3-0).

Amat, who won the Division 3 girls crown and was the preseason No. 1 in the division, dropped to 7-3-1.

The three losses equal the total numbers of losses in Amat’s the two previous years combined. Amat was 27-1-1 in 2009 and 28-2 during last year’s championship run.

“It’s a great wake-up call for us,” Amat coach Ruben Gonzalez said of the poor showing. “We’ve been a little comfortable with what we’ve done. We need to get back to work and become a hungry team again.”

Amat has a non-league game at area power Sierra Vista on Wednesday night at 6 p.m.

    But beacuse they are Amat, SGVT will still have them as #1

    Regent, they’d have to actually start covering games and paying attention to soccer before they can come out with any rankings! After you’re win over FSH, you guys deserve to be ranked #1, no question.

    ’bout time Amat starts playing someone worth a damn. They have no business being in division III with all the recruiting Ruben does. He’s a joke.

    They win one game and start popping off. Unbelievable.

    Are you talking to me or Gary? I was the one who made the recruiting claim. I’m not from St. Lucy’s. My daughter plays at a PUBLIC school that competes with homegrown talent and doesn’t recruit players like Amat does! When is CIF going to pull their heads out of their asses and make different divisions for public and private? Unreal!

    Soccer Dan,
    You have any proof on the recruiting angle. All you haters are the same .You can’t compete so out comes the recruiting and so forth. By the way just who do you root for or do you not care to mention your team .
