Lancers fall to Waverly

COLONY — Crest High dropped its second straight district game Friday, commmitting four turnovers in a 50-14 setback to Waverly.

“Right now we are struggling to figure out who we are going to be,” Lancer head coach Nick McAnulty said. “They flew to the football and made tackles all night long, and we missed a lot of tackles all night.”

On top of the turnovers, Crest also struggled with its blocking, McAnulty said.

Crest’s Holden Barker, who eclipsed the 1,000-yard barrier last week, rushed for 96 yards and both of the Lancers’ touchdowns. He also led the defense with five tackles. 

Through five games, Barker has rushed for 1,265 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Cody Nolan added four tackles.

“We are going to have to start fresh next week,” McAnulty said, “and correct the mistakes that have been issues all season.”

Crest (2-3 overall, 0-2 in district play) travels to Chetopa Friday.
