DENVER — The defending state champs will have a chance to repeat.
Broomfield, the No. 2 seed in the Class 5A girls soccer playoff bracket, battled back from a one-goal deficit to defeat No. 6 Columbine 2-1 in overtime Thursday night at the University of Denver.
The Rebels struck first on a goal from Riley Kaali-Nagy in the 69th minute. The Eagles came up with a late response on the equalizer from Nicky Choren on a header from a corner kick with just 3 minutes left in regulation.
With the momentum on its side, Broomfield netted the game-winning goal in the 86th minute on the golden strike by Kayla Loughrey.
Broomfield will play No. 4 Grandview in the 5A state championship game. The Wolves outlasted No. 1 Valor Christian 1-0 in double overtime late Thursday night to advance.
The state title game is scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday night at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City.
