COLONY — There were several opportunities for distraction Friday for Crest High’s Lancers.

Crest celebrated its fall homecoming on the same night the school honored its talented senior class.

But the Lancers weren’t in much mood to fool around.

Crest scored early and often, pounding visiting Marais des Cygnes Valley, 64-0, in a game called at halftime via Kansas eight-man mercy rules.

The victory, Crest’s fifth in a row, puts the 6-1 Lancers in a key district showdown next Friday at Lebo.
