After City High dropped Cedar Rapids Washington to 0-3 on the season with a 1-0 win at Kingston stadium in April City High coach Michael Prunty had a feeling the Warriors were on the verge of a breakthrough.

“After the game I told them ‘you guys are going to have a good season’ and they kind of said ‘how we are 0-4’,” Prunty explained on Saturday. “I told them they would have a good season just from how they were playing and they continued to have a good season.”

The Warriors continued to prove Prunty right on Wednesday.

Class 3A No. 13 Cedar Rapids Washington ran its winning streak to seven with a 2-1 win over No. 15 City High in a 3A, Region 4 semifinal at Kingston Stadium.
