The season that was supposed to a big one for Westminster High School ended on a sour note Friday night at Keifer Stadium in La Puente.
The Lions, who entered the season 17th in the nation, fell to top-seeded Bishop Amat, 35-7.
The Lancers (11-0) scored on their first two possessions in the first quarter--on 11- and 51-yard runs by Eric Bieniemy and Mazio Royster, respectively.
The Lions (5-5-1), who were third in the Sunset League, didn't give in to the Angeles League Champions, however.
Quarterback Mike Austin moved Westminster 72 yards in 14 plays and running back Jim Rubalcava finished the eight-minute drive with a two-yard run with 4:08 left in the second quarter.
"They took us out of our game plan late in the second quarter," Bishop Amat Coach Mark Paredes said. "They really came after us and hit us hard."
