  Original Published: 9/28/2013It started as if Northern Michigan would send Ashland University to their fourth straight loss leading 10-0 with 14:51 remaining in the first half. But Ashland U. would score the next 38 points enroute to a 52-24 win over the Wildcats and stopping a three game AU slide to start the season. The Eagle offense which had been almost nonexistent for the first three games broke out in a big way rolling up 507 yards, 256 passing 251 running. Ashland's Tra'von Chapman was 9 of 16 for 164 yards with two touchdown passes. Austin Bruns went 6 of 7 for 84 yards and one touchdown. Anthony Taylor carried 19 times for 119 yards and one touchdown, while Vance Settlemire picked up 61 yards on 10 carries scoring twice. Receiver Dan Piko had a good night with six receptions for 113 yards and a touchdown. The AU defense also chimed in with Eagle lineman Matt Bambauer knocking out Northern Michigan starting quarterback Cody Scepaniak with a sack late in the second quarter as Ashland led at the break 31-10. With the win AU improves to 1-3 overall, 1-2 in the GLIAC, while NMU falls to 1-2 in all games and 1-2 in conference. The Eagles will be on the road next Saturday at Lake Erie for a 1pm kickoff.
