Class 4A, first round
Kickoff: Saturday, 1 p.m., Windsor HS
Quick hits: After a one-year leave of absence, coach Chris Jones is back leading Windsor and the Wizards are right back in as one of the 4A favorites with a 10-0 loss to Pine Creek in Week 2 the only setback ... Broomfield met up with Windsor the week after that loss and WHS held nothing back in a 40-14 win. It was a 19-point second quarter for Windsor that put the Eagles behind the 8-ball ... Windsor has racked up 269 rushing yards a contest, but 27 created turnovers have helped with making short fields for the offense ... Broomfield is playing well with four straight wins, outscoring opponents 161-21 in that stretch ... The Eagles' 257 total yards per game ranked in the bottom half of 4A, but allowing just 176 points defensively put BHS 14th ... The Eagles have picked off nine passes, led by three each from Preston May and Tanner Garner.
Bottom line: Broomfield needed last week's win against Brighton to get into the playoffs, and in reality the Eagles have been in must-win mode since mid-season when they were 2-4. Windsor is not a juggernaut by any means, but Broomfield will need to avoid any and all mistakes to score the big upset.
