Legends vs Wildcats

Friday night Lancaster and Depew will once again renew a rivalry for the 90th time. Lancaster leads the series 50-33-6. The series began back in the year 1919. There have been 6 ties in the series with the most recent one being in 1989, 0-0. There were 4 times when the squads would face off twice in one year, 1919, 1925, 1926, and 1932. There have been breaks in the game as well. From 1921-24, 1933-1940 the schools did not play one another. From 1941 to today, Lancaster and Depew have been playing continuously.

The schools would once again play each other in 1941 as they were part of the same conference. Depew would join Western New York Intermediate Conference which Lancaster was a member so the schools would have the other on their schedule.

In 1963, the coaches agreed to schedule the game at the end of the season so the players would have their rival to look forward to. From 1964 on, the game has been the last game of the season for both schools.
