The Georgia Southern Eagles and Furman Paladins met for the 25th and probable final time on Saturday with the Eagles holding a 16-8 advantage entering the game.

The Eagles were lined up to punt on their first possession, but Luke Cherry threw the pass to Deion Stanely for 26 yards and a first down.

That set up a one-yard touchdown run by former Savannah Christian Raider Nardo Govan and the Eagles took a 7-6 lead.

In the third quarter, Irving Huggins went off right tackle for 2 yards to put the Eagles back in front 14-13.

However, Furman would boot an 18-yard field goal by Ray Early on the first play of the 4th quarter to take the lead 16-13.

Turnovers would tell the rest of the story; the Eagles fumbled away their last chance, and Furman eked out a 16-13 win over Georgia Southern.

"It's tough, you know. It comes down to very similar things that have happened. We've lost games in the past, turnovers have cost us in every one of our games, it's frustrating." said Jeff Monken, Eagles Head Coach. 

The Eagles are home next week as they play host to the Catamounts of Western Carolina.
