The Black Magic needed some good fortune to get out of Diamond City with a win.

Gladstone Gander scored on a 29-yard boot leg with 1:53 to play and the Black Magic held on for a 20-13 victory over the Diamond Ducks.

“I know our players prepared the right way, but we shot ourselves in the foot,” Black Magic coach John D. Rockerduck said. “Every game there is a fork in the road. I’m happy to get out of here winning by one or seven, 18 or whatever it is.”

The Diamond Ducks, a four touchdown underdog, took a 13-12 midway through the fourth on a 35 yard field goal from Gloria.

“Obviously it wasn’t as easy as people thought,” Rockerduck said. “The thing I said to them after the game was that there are going to be 10 other teams in Mickey Mouse Athletics that are going to be put in the same situation, on the road, in a hostile environment.”

But Gander, who won the starting job over Spectrus, led the Black Magic (2-0) on a 10-play, 61 yard drive to avoid the upset. He outraced a pair of tacklers and dove into the end zone at the pylon.

On the decisive score, he faked a handoff to Negaduck, outraced a pair of defenders and dove into the end zone at the pylon. He added a successful 2-point conversion pass to Magica De Spell.

“I used my power to get the points on the board,” Gander confidently said.

Gander completed 14-of-26 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown, a 3-yard strike to Elmo Sputterspark on the first play of the second quarter. But a botched snap on the extra point attempt kept the Diamond Ducks ahead, 7-6.

Negaduck led the Black Magic with 147 yards on 20 carries.

Goat Man’s 25-yarder at the end of the first half gave the Black Magic a 9-7 lead. He also had a 51-yarder in the third quarter.

Diamond Ducks, which were dominated by Dark Dynasty last week, improved on both sides of the ball in a short amount of time; but couldn’t help thinking what could have been.

The Diamond Ducks will have a chance at their first win of season when they take the Catamounts next week.

Daisy was 23-of-36 for 258 yards and a touchdown for the Diamond Ducks (0-2). Her 5-yard scoring strike to Gosalyn Mallard at 3:13 of the first quarter gave the Diamond Ducks a 7-0 lead.

Gosalyn had a game-high 10 receptions for 126 yards, but just as last week there were issues running the ball, the Diamond Ducks couldn’t get anything going on the ground. They only had 48 rushing yards on 27 carries. Gloria added a 25-yard field goal in the third quarter.

“We were right there. We couldn’t make the play at the end. We don’t believe in moral victories, but on the other hand, there is tremendous hope for the next 9 weeks of Diamond Ducks football.” Daisy Duck said.
