AURORA | Not much, except for the end result, went as planned for the Regis Jesuit girls lacrosse team Wednesday night.

Try as they might, the top-seeded Raiders couldn’t shake ninth-seeded Arapahoe until the final horn of their girls state lacrosse playoff quarterfinal contest at Lou Kellogg Stadium, a 16-15 double overtime victory that put them in the state semifinals for the first time.

Senior Kellen Foster and freshman Kathleen Roe scored goals in the first of two three-minute overtimes and Regis Jesuit was able to milk the final minute-plus off the clock to advance to the Final Four.

Coach Billy Corbett’s Raiders advance to face fifth-seeded Centaurus — a 15-12 winner over the No. 4 Kent Denver — on May 18 at the University of Denver. The Warriors are the only Colorado team to beat Regis Jesuit this season, winning 13-11 on April 13.

The Regis Jesuit-Centaurus game time, along with that for the other semifinal between No. 3 Cherry Creek and No. 2 Air Academy, will be announced.

Senior Erin Sungelo led the Raiders with seven goals and Roe finished with five, including the eventual game-winner off a pass from Sungelo with 17 seconds left in the first overtime.
