BROOMFIELD — Retro night meant knee-high socks, long-sleeved jerseys and plenty of headbands to the Broomfield girls basketball players. But an evening celebrating the Eagles’ campy past also meant something else — an old-school whipping.

The fifth-ranked Broomfield girls pulled no punches against Mountain View, downing its Northern Conference foe 58-27 on the school’s original court in Wilkerson Gym. And similar to so many Eagles’ teams that proceeded this season’s, it was the squad’s defense that led the way to victory.

Broomfield was ruthless in the opening half, holding the Lions to 10 points.

“They definitely couldn’t get back into the game after that,” Broomfield forward Callie Kaiser said. “Our press and the steals we got to start helped us out a lot.”

Even with the dominant showing on defense Broomfield (16-3, 9-1) still had its troubles. But few of the obstacles the team faced resulted from the Lions (9-10, 5-5). Instead, it was the same issue the Eagles have dealt with all season — scoring.

Kaiser had a solid night, finishing with a team-high 11 points off a strong showing off the baseline and up the lane. And the Eagles had 11 girls record baskets in the game.

But to get to their final 58 points, the Eagles had to put up plenty of shots. Broomfield could get in position to score, but struggled finishing and ended the night shooting around 39 percent from the field.

“It’s been our issue all year and it’s been a little bit frustrating,” Broomfield coach Mike Croell said. “We are doing our best to create offense off our defense and get faster out there, but we can do a lot better to finish our shots out there.”

Even with some shaky shooting, Broomfield kicked off the night in strong form on offense. The team scored 16 points in both the first and second quarter, in part from Kaiser finding an early touch.

The freshman scored eight of her total points in the opening half, hitting 3-of-6 field goal attempts and a pair of free throws.

“Our offense isn’t where we want it yet, but some of our shots fell,” Kaiser said.

Mountain View rallied some out of halftime, but never found a solid crack in Broomfield to exploit.

The Lion scored 10 points in the third quarter, with Katie Wilson finding her touch in the period with five points. But outside the quarter, the only weapon the team could consistently turn to was Kate Annan. The guard finished the night with a game-high 13 points.

“We’re not perfect, but we’re getting to where we need to be at this point in the season,” Croell said. “Hopefully, we’re a bit more focused for the remainder of the season.”
