COLONY — The Crest High School football team used a valiant first half effort to take down Norwich in their eight-man 2A opening round playoff game on Thursday, 60-40. 

The Lancers (7-2; 1-0) jumped out to a 40-point 52-12 advantage midway through the second half which quickly evaporated into a 12-point lead halfway through the fourth quarter. Norwich was able to take advantage of a pair of onside kick recoveries as well as a Crest fumble. 

Crest put the game away when Holden Barker rushed in for a 20-yard touchdown to give his home team the 20-point victory.
