In a wild offensive affair, the Eastern Oregon Mountaineers scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to earn a 50-46 come-from-behind win over the MSU-Northern Lights Saturday afternoon in LaGrande, Ore.
MSU-N had built a 33-28 halftime lead, and the Lights led 46-35 at the start of the fourth quarter, before the Mounties came back in the final 15 minutes.
The Lights got three touchdown passes from freshman quarterback Derek Lear, as well as two rushing touchdowns from sophomore fullback James Chandless. MSU-N also scored on a blocked punt, as well as a safety.
The Lights fell to 1-2 in Frontier Conference play, while the win was EOU's first of the 2010 season. MSU-N returns home to face Rocky Mountain College next Saturday.
