The Ducks battle to keep Muddy River from crossing the try line during their 44-7 win in Clinton on Sept. 1.

This weekend the Iowa City Ducks will look to stay undefeated as they head to Omaha for their third game of the 2018 Fall Season.

The Ducks started the 2018 Fall Season with a 36-17 win over Des Moines. Strong play put the Ducks up in the first half and the Flock was able to hold on through the second to come out with a victory.

The following week’s match in Clinton was a mirror image of the one against Des Moines. Muddy River fought hard and were ahead for a good portion of the first 40 minutes.

But the Ducks struck back in the second half, turning the match into a track meet Muddy River’s big men had no chance of winning. Iowa City would walk out of Clinton with a 44-7 victory under their feathers.

The Ducks will try to continue their unbeaten streak as they head to Nebraska to face the Omaha GOATS, a new addition this year to the Iowa D-3 division.
