Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52401
Before Friday night, Iowa City West's most recent trip to the UNI-Dome was a loss in the Class 4A state championship game.
The Trojans' Week 3 return to Cedar Falls had that same late November feel.
West answered Luke Gillett's touchdown pass to Blake Christensen on the first play of overtime with a 5-yard touchdown run by quarterback Evan Flitz before Flitz rolled out and hit Traevis Buchanan for the conversion as the No. 3 Trojans took down No. 10 Cedar Falls, 32-31, in a Class 4A prep football overtime thriller.
West overcame a 17-point halftime deficit with 21 unanswered points, and, after Cedar Falls regained the lead, tied the score on Lucas Karwal's 35-yard field goal with 1:16 left in the fourth quarter.
Flitz completed 17 of 25 passes for 208 yards and two scores. He also rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for a Trojans team that was held to 85 yards of offense in the opening half.
