Eagles fall in playoff opener

For the second week in a row, Eastern Washington's defense had no answer to their opponent's passing game.  This time, however, the offense failed to make up for that glaring defensive deficiency, and the Eagles saw their season come to end with a 44-33 loss to Stephen F. Austin in the opening round of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

You can read what EWU's sports information department wrote about the game here, and you can check out what SFA's sport info folks posted here. I've also included this link to the short Associated Press story that appeared earlier in the day in The Spokesman-Review.

Additional details on the game should be posted later on the S-R website at
