Mouseketeers Impressive, Focus on Clinching Championship
Mouseketeers 42, Aviators 13
Mickey Mouse passed for 259 yards and four touchdowns, connecting twice with Amos Mouse, as the Mouseketeers rolled to a 42-13 victory over the Aviators.
The Mouseketeers (6-2) won their third consecutive game, while the Aviators have now lost three straight bringing their record to a dismal 1-7 record on the year.
The Mouseketeers led 21-0 with six minutes left in the first half.
Basil of Baker Street capped off the Mouseketeers’ opening drive with a 3-yard touchdown on a shovel pass from Mickey Mouse.
Amos Mouse, the Revolutionary mouse who became an apprentice to Benjamin Franklin and inadvertently wrote the Declaration of Independence, was used early and often.
He caught a 5-yard pass from Mickey at the back of the end zone in the first quarter for a 14-0 lead. The two connected for a TD with 1:52 left in the third quarter, this time from 9 yards out for a 28-7 lead.
Aviators’ quarterback, Panchito Pistoles, making another start during his very disappointing season ran for two touchdowns, but could not rally the battered wings of the Aviators.
His season at quarterback has been much like the “Splash Mountain Angry Lady“; an unattractive and pointless event.
Pistoles failed to convert first downs on his first three series, before leading the Aviators on a 63-yard drive, completing four passes for 37 yards and benefiting from two Mouseketeer penalties, including a personal foul. Pistoles capped it off by keeping it for a 1-yard touchdown run with 1:04 left in the second quarter.
The Aviators were moving the ball on its opening drive of the second half but the Mouseketeers stopped that threat when Mortimer “Morty” Mouse intercepted a pass from Pistoles that was tipped.
The Mouseketeers pulled away with a five-play, 87-yard drive late in the third quarter with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit’s 39-yard run from the Aviators’ 13-yard line sparking the march. Four plays later, Mickey floated a pass to Amos just inside the pylon for a 9-yard touchdown.
The Mouseketeers finished with 541 yards total offense but were called for 12 penalties for 106 yards.
