LA PUENTE — Claremont knew was it was getting against top-seed Bishop Amat in the CIF Southern Section Division 3 girls soccer semifinals on Tuesday, a team that had scored over a 100 goals on the season, and had a 41-goal scorer in Stanford-bound senior Sophia Serafin, who knocked in six goals in the quarterfinals.
But Claremont had a plan, and it worked to perfection, scoring early and holding off Bishop Amat and Serafin 1-0 to advance to the championship against second-seed South Torrance, a 5-2 winner over Flintridge Prep on either Friday or Saturday. The dates and times of the final will be released Wednesday.
Claremont’s Oxsana Sosnovsky sent a long throw in front of Amat’s goal in the 20th minute, and somehow Mackenzie Boulware emerged from the crowd to score.
The lone goal stood up, but Claremont (23-2-2) had to withstand a flurry of Amat (24-4) chances, especially in the second half.
“We bent, but we didn’t break,” Claremont coach Tim Tracey said. “I’m very proud of our team. Bishop Amat came after us hard again and again. I’m just glad we were able to absorb what they threw at us to advance.”
How rare is a shutout over Bishop Amat? It was the first all season, and snapped Amat’s 14-game winning streak.
“Claremont did what they had to do, they got the early goal,” Bishop Amat coach Guillermo Gonzalez said. “We knew they were dangerous on set pieces and they got us.”
Claremont central defenders Hope Hyland, Katie Weaver and a host of others shadowed Serafin throughout, but Serafin was not without her chances.
She nearly tied the game on two headers minutes apart early in the second half, and was tripped-up for a penalty kick in the 65th minute, but she missed the penalty, steering it wide right.
“We had our chances in the second half and the missed PK was tough,” Gonzalez said. “It’s always tough against a good defensive team to get any goals, but they did a great job keeping us off the scoreboard.”
Amat has lots of weapons, but clearly the focus was Serafin.
“We were going to double-team her anytime she received the ball,” Tracey said. “We didn’t want to allow her to turn to her strong foot. It was unfortunate she missed the PK, but for the most part, we did a good job keeping her in front of us and away from shooting on frame.”
The Wolfpack really had to roll up their sleeves the final 10 minutes after losing sophomore forward Sophie Jones to a red card, but still hung on with 10 players. Jones will have to sit out the final because of the ejection.
Ironically, Claremont’s last title came in 2012, beating Bishop Amat 2-0 in the championship.
“These girls worked so hard, they deserve the opportunity to play for a title,” Tracey said.

ONTARIO >> Northview High School’s Eddie Flores and Jackson Serna were two of the top wrestlers in the area at their weight class all season and the duo lived up to that billing Saturday.Both scored individual titles to lead the area efforts at Saturday’s CIF Southern Section Masters Meet at Citizens Business Bank Arena.
The area qualified 11 competitors for next week’s CIF State championships at Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield.
Area power Northview, which won its 14th divisional title last week, finished second with the two champions and six total qualifiers. St. John Bosco, with nine qualifiers, was first.
The other area qualifiers were Northview’s Dominick Arellano (113 pounds, third), Gabriel Cortez (132, sixth), Ricky Marin (138, fourth) and Steven Comstock (170, fourth); Rowland’s Richard Rojo (106, sixth) and Armando Murrillo (132, eighth); Bishop Amat’s Sidney Flores (120, third), Charter Oak’s Joaquin Garcia (152, fifth) and Santa Fe’s Ronny Peraza (152, seventh).
Serna, the No. 6 heavyweight in the state by The California Wrestler, won a Masters title for the second consecutive season. He was steady in following up last week’s win at the Inland Division championships, scoring four wins by decision and one by fall. He beat Sultana’s Austin Gillham 2-1 in a final. Gillham is ranked No. 7 in the state.
He took a 2-0 lead in second period with an escape and penalty point before holding on for the 2-1 victory.
“It’s great,” Serna said. “To be two-time Masters champion is amazing. But it’s not what I train for. I train to be state champion.
“I had some close matches. I should have scored more, but I got the job done. I’m proud of my team. I did it for my team.”
Eddie Flores was also a repeat winner, taking the 106-pound title with a 7-2 win in the final over Downey’s Jonathan Prata. Flores is ranked No. 1 in the state.
He used n takedown and an escape for a 3-2 lead before getting a takedown and nearfall in the closing seconds for the five-point decision.
“It feels great,” Flores said. “Last year I made it to the final and won by default, so for anyone having any doubts, there it is. I got the ‘W’ in the finals.”
Sidney Flores was a strong third at 120 after finishing fourth at last week’s Central Division championships.
He lost to Santa Ana Calvary Chapel’s Luciano Arroyo in the quarterfinals on Friday before going 3-0 on Saturday, including a 10-4 decision over Alta Loma’s Alex Nunez in the third-place bout.
“Last week was tough,” Flores said. “I had a tough day (last) Saturday and I used that as motivation for this week. I came across two guys who I lost to last week and (beat) this week, so that was great.” CIF STATE GIRLS CHAMPIONSHIPS
Northview’s Angelina Gomez won at 101 pounds to lead the area.
Gomez defeated Riverside King’s Marissa Ritchie, 6-0.
