I was thinking of a mole sauce. Heavy on the Pepitas for a nice nutty Fall flavor. Moles also usually have an element of sweetness to them, often by using raisins and Mexican brown sugar (piloncillo). Instead, maybe use dried cherries, or even dried cranberries. Since mole sauces are often paired with chicken I think it would be a natural with the duck. Just lighten it up a bit so that it doesn't overwhelm the squash.
