Rancho Cotate QB Peleti-Gore won’t play in postseason

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Rancho Cotate’s Poueu Peleti-Gore did not play in the Cougars’ 35-6 win against Santa Rosa on Friday and the junior quarterback will not play in the postseason.
Rancho Cotate coach Ed Conroy declined to say why Peleti-Gore won’t be available. The loss of the dynamic signal-caller is a major blow entering the 16th-seeded Cougars’ first-round game at No. 1 Petaluma on Friday in the North Coast Section Division II playoffs.
Peleti-Gore, who is adept at running the Cougars’ triple option, rushed for 88 yards on 11 carries and scored a touchdown in Rancho Cotate’s 14-12 loss to Petaluma on Sept. 12. He also threw three interceptions.
