No. 5 Regis Jesuit pulls away from ThunderRidge in girl basketball

The Raiders and Grizzlies played an even first half, before Regis pulled away in the second half.

AURORA, Colo. — Regis Jesuit's Jada Moore changed the whole game with one play. 

Looking at a halftime deficit of 25-24, Moore pulled off an amazing steal and buzzer beater to give the Raiders an unexpected 26-25 lead at the break over ThunderRidge. 

No. 5 Regis led the rest of the way. 

"It was big. We went into the locker room with some momentum. We were all cheering, all excited. I think that play took the lead for the game," Moore said. 

It did indeed. 

The Raiders used a big third quarter to pull away from the Grizzlies, and after a back-and-forth fourth quarter secured a 56-43 win.
