LONGMONT — The possibility seemed scant nine weeks ago, but it’s official. The Longmont football team is bound for the Class 4A state championship game.

Behind a standout performance by senior quarterback Clint Sigg, the Trojans upended rival Broomfield 21-14 on Saturday at Everly-Montgomery Field. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Sigg ran for two touchdowns and threw for another.

Longmont, the No. 7 seed, will take on top-seeded Pine Creek in the championship game (11 a.m., Saturday, Sports Authority Field at Mile High).

The Trojans (10-3) stumbled out of the gate to a 1-3 record this season, but haven’t lost since. Their march to the title game included a road upset of previously unbeaten No. 2 Fort Collins in the quarterfinals.

Longmont led 14-7 at the half, buoyed by a 17-yard TD connection from Sigg to Eli Sullivan 49 seconds before intermission. Sigg ran in the two-point conversion to make up for a missed two-point attempt after McCartney Coyle’s first-quarter score. Sigg’s 10-yard TD run early in the fourth put Longmont ahead by two touchdowns.

Broomfield led 7-0 early after cashing in the game’s opening drive with a six-yard scoring run by quarterback Logan McCormick. The No. 11 Eagles (9-4) twice were stopped on downs inside Longmont territory later in the half.

The Eagles’ Dante Panicucci caught a 21-yard TD with 1:11 remaining in the game, but the Eagles failed on their onside kick attempt and Longmont ran out the clock.
