Gabe Rego rushed 13 times for 144 yards and scored five touchdowns as Union rebounded from a tough loss last week to win at Enumclaw.

Enumclaw scored first and then it was all Titans.

“It was a good bounce-back game for us,” Union coach Cale Piland said. “Collectively, our defense grew. We played lots of kids and they made lots of plays. We took a step forward.”

Kaben Humphrey-Butler was 9 of 13 passing for 280 yards and three TDs. He had scoring plays of 56 (to Rego) and 72 yards (to Tanner Nelson).

Rego’s longest run of the game was his last TD, going 79 yard for the final score.

Next up: Union (1-1) vs. Westview (Thu.)
