Quincy Forte touched the ball just five times for 16 all-purpose yards, but they were enough to help Eastern Washington slip past Wagner 29-19 in the quarterfinals of the Football Championship Series playoffs on Saturday.

The Vacaville High grad scored on a 3-yard run on the last play of the third quarter to put the Eagles ahead to stay 22-19. That capped a seven-play, 75-yard drive.
Once EWU got the ball back after a punt, it went on a clock-killing 75-yard, 15-play march during which the Eagles consumed 7 minutes, 27 seconds.
Forte's contribution was his only reception of the day for a 3-yard gain. On the season he leads the Eagles (10-2) with 461 yards on 115 carries and has also caught 17 passes for 138 yards.

A&M is ranked No. 16 in Division II and plays at No. 2 Winston Salem State (13-0). Deone Bondurant (Fairfield, Solano) had arguably his best game of the season, recording four tackles, two of which were for losses, including a sack, and getting a quarterback hurry.

Nevada (7-5, 4-4 Mountain West)concluded its regular season with a tough 27-21 loss to Boise State. Brock Hekking (Vacaville) had two tackles, one of which was a sack.
