MONTEBELLO — Cantwell High School began the week with an outside shot for a Del Rio League title.Bishop Amat put an end to those hopes early Thursday.Alyssa Barrera and Madeline Ramirez each had four RBIs to lead the Lancers to a 17-0 victory over the host Cardinals in a Del Rey League game that was halted after five innings due to the 10-run rule. Ramirez and Barrera had three and two hits, respectively, for Amat, which improved to 15-6 overall and 8-1 in league play. The win keeps the Lancers tied for first with St. Paul, who they face on May 11. Britney Huerta and Julia Guzman had singles for the third-place Cardinals, who slipped to 12-10 and 4-5.Cantwell lost to Amat, 3-0, on April 14, and the Lancers made sure early this one would be different. They scored three runs in the first and seven in both the third and fourth to put it away.

Amat’s Alyssa Barrera: “The last game (against Cantwell) we didn’t come out 100 percent, while the first game (a 14-0 Amat win) we came out 100 percent. This was more like the first game. We had great at-bats during the game, taking pitches, going deep in counts. We did a good job throughout the whole lineup.”

Cantwell coach Ralph Martin Del Campo: “It was just one of those games where the girls weren’t on and they were on. (Amat) hit the ball real well. There’s not much you can do about that when they hit the ball like that. We had a few errors, but they hit the ball real well.”
