GLADBROOK - BCLUW jarred the door open, but Gladbrook-Reinbeck slammed it shut. The Rebels scored 28 unanswered points in the second half to break away from BCLUW on their way to a 49-6 rout of the Comets in Friday's Class 1A District 4 Homecoming game at 'The Pit.' G-R tailback Travis Freese rushed for 101 yards in the first half and 111 more after the break, totaling 17 attempts for 212 yards and three touchdowns. He also returned a punt 63 yards for the Rebels' final score in the early stages of the fourth quarter. Gladbrook-Reinbeck (5-1, 3-1) jumped out to a 21-0 lead on touchdown runs by Zack Schwartz (8 yards) and Freese (11), and a 30-yard scoring strike from Parker Bolt to Logan Petersen. BCLUW (1-5, 0-4) scored its second touchdown of district play before the intermission. Cole Thompson broke loose over the left side for a 22-yard TD run, bringing the Comets to within 21-6 inside the final minute of the first half. The Rebels put the game out of reach in the second half, with Freese adding TD runs of 22 and 15 yards and Colby Luethje pitching in with a 24-yard scamper. G-R ended the night with 485 yards of total offense, including 324 on the ground. Bolt finished 11-for-17 passing for 161 yards. The Comets were limited to 111 yards of total offense and seven first downs. Thompson was the team's leading rusher with 29 yards, while quarterback Luke Erbes was 5-for-21 passing for 66 yards. Erbes hooked up with Alex Morgan for a 34 yard pass play to set up Thompson's scoring run late in the second quarter. Petersen led the G-R defense with five tackles, and Bolt recovered a fumble. The Rebels remain in second place in the district standings, sharing the honor with Hudson (3-3, 3-1). The Pirates host G-R next Friday night. BCLUW hosts South Hamilton (3-3, 2-2) in search of its first district win.
