  Original Published: 10/19/2013On a day when the Ashland University football team lost four fumbles, threw an interception and had to use three quarterbacks, they still managed to get a 14-6 win at Walsh in Canton, Ohio. At times it could have been worse, it could have been raining. Oh, that's right, it did. At any rate, Trailing at the break 3-0, the Eagles were able to put together two scoring drives in the second half, the first capped off by freshman running back Vance Settlemire's nine yard run which finished off a 12 play 94 yard drive for a 7-3 Eagle lead. Ashland U. grabbed a 14-3 lead in the fourth quarter when Anthony Taylor ran 30 yards for six more. The point after was good and the Eagles pushed their lead to 11 points. The Cavaliers added a field goal from 20 yards out with just under eight and a half minutes to go to close out the scoring at 14-6. The AU defense did the rest ending all hopes for a Walsh victory when the Eagles Kyle Tomko intercepted Walsh's Paul Kempe near midfield. Ashland ran out the clock after that to improve to 3-4 in all games and 3-3 in the GLIAC. Ashland lost starting quarterback Tra'Von Chapman to an ankle injury just before halftime. With true freshman quarterback Austin Bruns out for the season with a shoulder injury, that brought in T.K. Rock who played into the second half until he was knocked out of the game late in the third quarter on a hard hit that left him motionless on the field for several seconds. AU would finish the game with fourth team QB sophomore Cory Fichiesen who saw his first varsity action. Ashland led in total yardarge 362-286. Ashland U. running back Anthony Taylor had another strong effort with 184 yards rushing on 43 carries with one touchdown. The Eagles return home next Saturday for a 1pm kickoff against the Malone Pioneers at Jack Miller Stadium-Fred Martinelli Field.
