LA PORTE CITY - Eric Stoakes ran for 113 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown in the second quarter, as Gladbrook-Reinbeck avenged its only regular-season loss from a year ago by beating Union Community 13-6 on Friday night.

The Rebels, ranked No. 1 in the Des Moines Register's preseason poll, struck first on Jake Schuman's fourth-down touchdown pass to Colton Dinsdale, which covered 9 yards. Walker Thede's point-after kick made it 7-0 G-R amid the downpour.

Stoakes made it 13-0 with his touchdown dash early in the second period, but Union pulled back to within a score on Isaiah Vaughn's 2-yard touchdown plunge.

Neither team tallied points in the second half as Gladbrook-Reinbeck prevailed.

Schuman finished 7-of-16 passing for 83 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Hunter Lott had one catch for 47 yards, Josh Cooley had four grabs for 30 yards, and Dinsdale made two receptions for six yards and a score.

Dinsdale also led the Rebel defense with six solo and seven assisted tackles as well as a quarterback sack. Schuman had three interceptions, Cooley totaled six stops, while Kainen Hendricks had 4.5 tackles and an interception.

G-R outgained the Knights 244-147. Vaughn rushed for 73 yards to lead Union.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck hosts Dike-New Hartford (1-0) in non-district action next Friday night in Gladbrook.
