MISSOULA, Mont. — Eastern Washington's season came to an end in Missoula with a 57-41 loss to 6th seeded Montana in the 2nd round of the FCS Playoffs.

The Eagles were in control early up 21-13 in the 2nd quarter, but the Grizzlies would block a punt and later score a touchdown to make it 21-20 at halftime.

The 3rd quarter is where the game took a huge turn for the Eagles. Montana outscored Eastern Washington 21-7 in the quarter with help from miscues on the Eagles offense. 

The play that gave the Grizzlies full control was an Eric Barriere fumble in Eagles territory that led to a Montana touchdown to give the Grizzlies a 44-28 lead. 

EWU's season comes to a close after a 10-2 regular season where the offense averaged the 2nd most yards per game in the FCS with just over 550 yards a game.
