PARKER - A superb girls' soccer season by Sand Creek's Scorpions came crashing down in the second half of a 5-0 loss to Broomfield. The defeat ended Sand Creek's season in the state 4A semis Saturday.

"The girls were really amped up to be here," Sand Creek coach Craig Decker said. "Just making it here was enough. We were just really amped up, and we just made some silly mistakes."

Broomfield's Makena Bambei started Sand Creek's bad times when she launched a 35-yard shot into the net with 1:16 left in the first half. Decker said the shot drained his players' spirits as they went into the locker room at halftime.

It all fell apart in the second half. Brittney Stark raced past Sand Creek defenders to score three goals, and her sister, Michaela, scored another.

"They had our number today," Decker said. "We didn't play our game."

The Scorpions end their season with a 15-3-1 record. Sand Creek had outscored opponents 88-9.

Broomfield heads to 4A state final rematch with Cheyenne Mountain. Decker and his Scorpions lost, 1-0, earlier this season to Cheyenne Mountain.

"I think Cheyenne is going to beat them," Decker said of the 4A final. "I absolutely do."
