Eastern’s loss hits hard


As losses go, this one probably hurts more than usual.

According to Dave Trimmer's story in today's S-R, Eastern played tough defense, had a lead just before halftime and still saw it all slip away when Montana State threw in some tough long-range shots.

The loss means the Eagles are in seventh place in the Big Sky with five conference games left, Saturday at Montana (6 p.m.) and then four at home. Only the top six conference teams make the Big Sky Tournament.
