Regis Jesuit outlasts Monarch in 2OT in 5A hockey playoffs

The Raiders defeated the Coyotes 4-3 in double overtime Tuesday night to advance to the Class 5A semifinals.

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — This was playoff hockey at its best.

Regis Jesuit, the No. 4 seed in the Class 5A hockey playoff bracket, clashed with No. 5 Monarch late Tuesday night in a quarterfinal thriller at South Suburban Sports Complex.

The Raiders and Coyotes exchanged strikes, swapping leads multiple times until junior Nico Pineiro netted the game-winning goal in double overtime to lift Regis Jesuit to the 4-3 victory.

"It's amazing. The crowd was amazing," Pineiro said. "It's a great feeling. There's nothing like it. You can't describe it -- just amazing."

Regis Jesuit advances to face No. 1 Valor Christian in the semifinals. That game will be played at 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Broadmoor World Arena in Colorado Springs.

Monarch's season ends with an 11-7-2 overall record.
