Both Eagles teams are wanting more
Broomfield vs. Pine Creek, 11 a.m. Saturday, Sports Authority Field
Both Pine Creek and Broomfield came away from last season wanting more.
Pine Creek had its 37game winning streak snapped — and its hopes of a three-peat dashed — when it fell to Loveland, 26-14, in the 2015 Class 4A semifinals.
Broomfield missed the playoffs for the first time since 2009 after a 5-5 season. Both teams are 11-2.
So, when the two teams meet Saturday at 11 a.m. at Sports Authority Field at Mile High to decide the 4A state championship, both sidelines will be full of talented players who aren’t taking an opportunity to win a ring for granted.
Pine Creek’s championship hopes rest upon the shoulders of quarterback Brock Domann, who saw some time during the Eagles’ 2014 title push, as well as freshman sensation David Moore III, who’s run for nearly 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Southern Conference champions boast an array of talented wideouts in senior Peter Isais, senior Damario Portillos and junior Wyatt Wieland, while the Pine Creek defense — which has limited the opposition to one score or less six times this season — is headlined
