Duke City denied United Bowl bid

PHOENIX — Duke City Gladiators kicker Kevin Goesseling missed a potential game-tying 26-yard field goal with no time remaining on Sunday as the Arizona Rattlers held on for a 58-55 win to advance to the United Bowl.

Darrell Moore scored on a 4-yard run with 18 seconds left to give the top-seeded Rattlers (13-2) the winning margin in the Indoor Football League semifinal. Arizona will face Massachusetts for the championship.

The fifth-seeded Gladiators (8-7) were attempting to win a third straight championship, after winning Champions Indoor Football titles in 2018 and 2019. Nate Davis threw six touchdown passes in the loss for Duke City.
