Gladbrook-Reinbeck’s Keagan Giesking, lower right, and Kale Hasselmann team up to bring down Don Bosco running back Carson Tenold in the first quarter of Friday’s season-opening football game in Gladbrook.

Don Bosco quarterback Cael Frost had a 2-yard touchdown run and a 32-touchdown pass to Fischer Ohrt to round out the team's scoring. The Dons led 38-0 at the half and handed Gladbrook-Reinbeck its first shutout loss since Hudson edged the Rebels 5-0 in muddy conditions on Oct. 6, 2017.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck was limited to just 112 yards of total offense, led by Keagan Giesking rushing 23 times for 79 yards. Giesking also accounted for G-R's only two pass completions, connecting with Kale Hasselmann for 5 yards and Eli Thede for 4 yards.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck goes on the road in Week 2, facing Turkey Valley at 7 p.m. in Jackson Junction.
