Following last Friday’s loss to Crespi, the Lancers face an uphill battle just to make the postseason with tough Mission League games left against Serra, Chaminade and Alemany.
If the Lancers don’t make the postseason, it will mark the fourth time in the past nine years that Amat didn’t even go dancing. Considering Amat was in a four or five-team league for most of the past decade, that’s saying something.
Heck, in one of the years Amat did make the playoffs, the Lancers needed the stars to align and a coin flip in their favor on the final night of the season just to make the dance.
This year was supposed to be different. Amat has one of its most-talented teams in quite some time, with three players receiving college offers from some of the top college football programs on the West Coast.
But “it” hasn’t happened. Amat is now 2-3. Who knows what to make of the Lancers’ big win in Texas over Aledo. The rout of Rancho Cucamonga looks less impressive now that La Serna just beat the Cougars and it’s looking like this isn’t one of the Rancho Cucamonga’s juggernaut teams.
