ROHNERT PARK -- Jalon Luque rushed for 184 yards and two touchdowns, including a back-breaking 66-yard score in the fourth quarter to lead the No. 2 Rancho Cotate High football team to a 21-14 win over visiting Las Lomas on Friday night in the North Coast Section Division II semifinals.

Las Lomas (5-7) got a break late when Rancho Cotate fumbled the ball on four consecutive snaps in the fourth quarter, including one that led to a blocked punt. That led to Adam Wood's 1-yard touchdown run which cut the deficit to 21-14 with one minute, 31 seconds left.

However, the seventh-seeded Knights were called for an illegal touch on the ensuing kickoff and the Cougars ran out the clock.

It was a miserable night for football, with rain falling constantly and steam rising up from the field like it was coming off of the head of Otis Sistrunk. The conditions led to 14 fumbles between the teams. Amazingly, only two were lost.

However, the weather forced Rancho Cotate (11-0) to keep the ball on the ground. Michael Courchaine threw only three passes for the Cougars, completing just one. But it was a big one, an 11-yard touchdown to Chris Taylor-Yamanoha late in the first half to break a scoreless tie.

Las Lomas responded by converting an onside kick to open the second half. A 12-play, 46-yard drive culminated in a 1-yard run by Wood to tie the score at 7-7.

By that time, however, the Knights defense had begun to tire and Luque took over. Rancho Cotate marched 84 yards on 10 plays -- all on the ground and seven by Luque -- to take the lead for good. Luque scored on a 7-yard run.

The Cougars defense forced a punt and it took Luque just one play to break the game open. He took a handoff up the middle, spun through the line and broke into the open field for 66 yards.
