Help! Monty the Mountie is after me!!
Eastern led Montana-Western 33-7 at halftime but had to hang on for a 40-30 win. EOU is having a great season. They are now 6-1 in their league, and 6-2 overall. The latest poll had them ranked #19 in the country for their level (NAIA). Their only league loss came at the hands of Carroll College in Helena, Montana. EOU hosts Carroll next week in a game that could go a long way toward determining whether the Mounties will get a playoff game this year. EOU has only won six games in a season six times in the last 80 years! So this season is a special one so far.
You can see that it was a great day for a ballgame. This view is looking SE from the stadium stands.
I love this time of year around here. We usually get a few good weeks of fall weather before it gets icky with cold, rain and snow. I'm eating up this nice weather while it lasts!
