FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Jordan Perry hit Dan Galindo with a 20-yard strike with 12 seconds left and Northern Arizona beat Eastern Washington 28-27 on Saturday, ending the Eagles’ 14-game Big Sky Conference winning streak.

The Lumberjacks (5-3, 3-1) went 77 yards in three plays to shock the Eagles (7-2, 4-1), who went for a fourth-and-4 at the NAU 23 with 51 seconds left. After Perry scrambled for 3 yards he found Alex Holmes behind the defense for 54 yards. Perry had stepped in for injured Chase Cartwright, who threw for 255 yards. Perry was 4 for 6 and Galindo, a freshman, scored his first touchdown.

Eastern, which had won four straight at NAU, passed on a potential 40-yard field goal after Quincy Forte had ripped off a 67-yard run. He had a career-high 219 yards in his first game after missing four because of a shoulder injury.

NAU had 496 yards and held EWU to 3 of 13 on third down.
