An unexpected run through the NCAA Division II playoffs has finally come to an end for the underdog Crusaders.

After sneaking into the postseason on an at-large bid, the North Greenville football team won its first two playoff games handily before ultimately falling to North Alabama in the quarterfinals, 38-0.

Eastside began the season with a 3-2 record, recording a pair of losses to Berea.
