Big second half propels Lancers past SCC at home



October 19, 2019 - 12:40 AM

COLONY — Crest High’s Lancers picked up the pace after a sloppy first half Friday, scoring three touchdowns in a five-minute stretch of the third quarter to defeat visiting Southern Coffey County, 40-16.

The win puts Crest in prime position for a home playoff game in two weeks. The Lancers stand at 3-1 in district play (4-3 overall), with one regular season contest left next Friday at Altoona-Midway. Southern Coffey County (2-2 in district play; 2-5 overall) hosts undefeated St. Paul.

Leading 14-8 at the break, Crest got a spark from quarterback Jacquez Coleman, who capped consecutive drives with touchdown runs covering 2 and 56 yards, respectively. But the biggest play of the game likely came in Southern Coffey County’s drive after Coleman’s second score.
