In soccer, both City High are both consistently ranked, and as is the case this year as the rivalry is renewed on Friday. West High has more total wins in the heated rivalry, but in recent years City has had more wins, including winning the last three seasons. In this season’s contest, returning stars Jackson Meyer ‘18 (City) and Alex Anderson ‘17 (West) look to lead their teams as they duke it out to be the best in Iowa City. So far this year, West High has gotten off to a 5-2 start, and the Trojans are ranked ninth in class 3A. City, fresh off of a win over #10 Cedar Rapids Washington on Tuesday, has started the season unbeaten and is ranked number one in the state. The rivalry has been hotly contested in years past, and City High head coach Jose Fajardo believes this year will be no different. 

“West is a good team and I am sure the game is going to be a very difficult one, just like every year,” Fajardo said. “We will work as hard as we can so we can prevail [against West].”

Many freshman and sophomores will play in the cross town rivalry for the first time including a pair of outstanding freshmen Adam Engelbrecht ‘20 (City) and Brody Schilling ‘20 (West) who will look to give their team the edge. 

The game will be played at the University of Iowa Soccer Fields on Friday, April 21st following the women’s game which starts at 5 o’clock.
