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.
