|RC football slate unveiled
With the exception of one game, Rancho Cotate High School’s football team in the fall will play an identical schedule to 2012. The Cougars are defending North Bay League champions. They won 12 straight games before falling to Clayton Valley in the North Coast Section Div. II final.
Instead of playing Petaluma, a team it has dominated in recent years, the Cougars have upgraded and will face American Canyon in a road game on Sept. 20. The Cougars will host Vallejo in a controlled scrimmage on Aug. 31 before opening the season at home against Alhambra on Sept. 6. The remainder of the schedule is as follows: Sept. 13 at home against Pinole Valley; Sept. 27 vs. Windsor (home); Oct. 4 vs. Ukiah (home); Oct. 11 at Montgomery (Santa Rosa); Oct. 18 at Casa Grande (Petaluma); Oct. 25 vs. Maria Carrillo (home); Nov. 1 at Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa); and Nov. 8 at Santa Rosa.
