Miller, Forgette help Eastern Washington to playoff win

A pair of offensive lineman from Clark County helped keep Eastern Washington rolling in the FCS playoffs.

Starting center Ashton Miller (Evergreen) and starting left guard Stephen Forgette (Heritage) helped the Eagles rack up 504 yards in a 41-17 win over South Dakota State in Cheney.
EWU rushers gained 287 yards and 43 carries, an average of 6.7 yards a carry.

Receiver Ashton Clark (Heritage) was held to one catch for nine yards, but that didn’t damped the thrill of a playoff win. After the game, Clark (@aclarky15) tweeted “One step closer to our goal. Love my team!!! Thanks to all the fans! Especially the ones that fought through the cold! Thank you!”
Eastern advances to a quarterfinal game against McNeese State or Jacksonville State next weekend.
