Quincy Forte’s wild ride continues for the Eastern Washington University football team.

The Vacaville High graduate rushed 24 times for 190 yards and two touchdowns to help lift the third-ranked Eagles to a 35-24 victory over No. 20 Jacksonville State in the FCS quarterfinals.

The Eagles host seventh-seeded and fifth-ranked Towson State, Saturday.

Forte scored on a 3-yard run in the second quarter to tie the score at 14 and added a 7-yard run in the third quarter to put his team ahead to stay at 28-21.

“He has a little bit of everything in him, ” EWU coach Beau Baldwin said in his team’s post game notes on the school’s web site. “That is not taking anything away from guys like Mario (Brown), Jabari (Wilson), (Demetrius) Bronson and guys who have run for us well – not just this year, but also in past years. Quincy is probably the biggest threat of a home run with some power. He has a little bit more strength than you might think for a smaller guy.”

Combined with his 202 yards in the previous win over South Dakota State, Forte now has 1,131 yards on the season, EWU’s 16th 1,000-yard campaign and 12th in the last 19 seasons.

Saturday will also be a busy day for several other former area standouts.

Deone Bucannon (Vanden) and Washington State play LaRyan King (Vacaville, Johnny Schupp (Vacaville) and Colorado State in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

To the south, Pacific’s Craig Bailey (Fairfield) is one of 51 seniors from Division III schools suiting up for the Stars and Stripes squad in the Tarzon de Estrellas (Bowl of the Stars) in Monterrey, Mexico. The team will takes on Mexico’s CONADEIP All-Stars for the game, which is in its fifth year, to be played at the Estadio Tecnologico on the Tec de Monterrey campus. In addition to the game, participants will take part in a youth clinic and community service project.

Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m.

A little later Saturday, Marcel Jensen (Rodriguez) and Fresno State battle USC in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff.

Men’s basketball

In Maine-Fort Kent’s 91-66 loss to Rowan, James Givens (Fairfield, Solano) had a season-high 24 points and a team-high eight rebounds and two assists. Earlier, Givens had 15 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in a 77-67 setback against Main-Presque Isle.

Dickinson State downed Jamestown 97-83 as Juston Goodwin (Buckingham Charter, Solano) had 13 points and five rebounds, and Desean Atkins (Fairfield) had six points and two assists. The Blue Hawks (3-6) then rallied to edge the University of Winnipeg 70-68 as Atkins had four points, three assists and two rebounds, and Goodwin added two points and as many rebounds.

Anthony Gonzalez (Vacaville) drained his only 3-point attempt but missed his other seven shots while scoring nine points and getting six rebounds as Pacific Union (0-12) fell 80-61 loss to Biola.

Jordan Collier (Vanden) played for Menlo in a 84-73 loss to Pacific.

Women’s basketball

Melaya Gaines (Armijo) poured in 10 points and added nine rebounds and two steals to help Cal State San Marcos (6-8) roll past Simpson 68-57.

Amnesty Bradley contributed two points and two rebounds for the Hawks (7-2), who improved to 3-0 in the PacWest Conference with their sixth straight win.

Taylor Caspers (Fairfield) scored two points for Texas-Arlington (0-9) in an 85-65 loss to Northern Arizona.

San Diego State dropped a 56-55 heart-breaker to UCLA as Khristina Hunter (Rodriguez) had six points, two assists and a block, and Erimma Amarikwa had two points and a steal.

Ruby Leon (Fairfield, Solano) had a team-high 11 points as Eastern Nazarene (3-5) fell 62-50 to Lasell.

Nebraska-Kearney (4-5) was thumped by Lincoln of Missouri, 71-50. The Lopers are coached by former Solano assistant Kevin Chaney.

Our Lady of the Lake, led by former Vacaville and Christian coach Chris Minner, stayed unbeaten with a 111-58 blasting of Southwest. The Saints improved to 6-0.
