But that is about to change in a big way. In fact, it already has.
The Falcons won their seventh straight - you read that correctly, seventh straight - game on Thursday night, vaulting headfirst into Lancaster-Lebanon League playoff contention with a gut-check 59-54 win over Hempfield in Landisville.
The win, combined with Warwick's loss to McCaskey, lifts Crest into a three-way tie for second place in Lancaster-Lebanon Section One with Warwick and Manheim Township, and for the league playoff spot that goes with it.
The Falcons and Warwick will dissolve at least a portion of that three-way deadlock on Tuesday, when they square off in Lititz in a matchup dripping with postseason implications.
Crest is in that enviable position after avenging a 71-46 loss to Hempfield on Jan. 2. This time, the Falcons turned the tables behind a balanced effort led by Killian Klopp's 17 points. Andrew Eudy added 15 points and Clay Penchard contributed 14 points to the big win.
Elsewhere Thursday night:
