MORAN — If there was a bright spot Saturday for Crest High, it was that the Class 1A regional championship loss to St. Paul was not a season-ender for the Lancers.

In defeating Altoona-Midway two nights earlier, Crest was assured of advancing to substate action, regardless of how Saturday’s contest ended.

St. Paul made sure there was little drama to be had, blitzing its way for a 19-4 lead after one period, and cruising from there to a 53-19 romp.
