Entering its 91st year, the rivalry between the Depew Wildcats and the Lancaster Legends is a fierce one. Dating back to 1919, the rivalry got so intense in the 1930s that it was temporarily ended for almost a decade due to concern for fan safety. This year, it is all about the coaches. Depew’s new head coach Mark DiRienzo is rebuilding his program, while two year veteran Lancaster head coach Eric Rupp hopes to lead his team to another victory over the Wildcats, who lost to the Legends last season 43-7.
This one was all Lancaster from the opening kickoff. The Legends put up 36 first half points, leading 36-0 at the break. Coming out of the locker room after the break, the Legends' offense picked up right where they left off, putting up another 14 points in the third quarter, while the defense stymied the Depew offense all evening. The Legends finished off the contest 50-7.
