Mounties fall to Lights

HAVRE, Mont. — The Eastern Oregon University football team fell to Montana State-Northern 45-27 Saturday.

The Mountaineers drop to 0-3 overall and 0-2 in the Frontier Conference. It’s the first time since 2010 EOU has started 0-3.

The Lights struck first Saturday with 5:08 left in the first quarter. Quarterback Derek Lear threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to make it a 7-0 lead for MSU-Northern. The Lights extended their lead on their next position to take a 14-0 lead in the second quarter.

Dominique Blackman got the Mountaineers on the board with 11:34 left in the second quarter on a 10-yard touchdown.

But the Lights responded with 14 unanswered points to extend their lead to 28-7.

Eastern Oregon cut the lead to 28-14 when Zach Bartlow found Justin Hernandez for a touchdown with four second left in the first half.

But the Mountaineers continued to struggle stopping the Lights’ offense in the second half, as MSU-Northern scored 10 straight points to make it 38-14 at the end of the third quarter.

EOU got the score to 38-20 but the deficit proved to be too much to overcome.

Due to technical difficulties, complete stats from the game were unavailable.

Eastern Oregon will return to action Saturday when it hosts No. 14 Southern Oregon University at 1 p.m.
