Austin Duncan fought his way to 71 yards rushing (on 16 carries) to improve to 780 for the season.
Patrick Page continued his excellence on defense, recording 18 tackles (seven unassisted) to run his season total to 111.
SJU scored the first TD of the day but John Broback responded with a 38 yard field goal to cut it to 7-3. The visitors then took command, scoring the next 41 points. Ryan Ferkinhoff (pictured) scored the lone Piper TD on a one yard run in the fourth quarter.
