The 2021 NCAA Women’s College World Series final draws closer, and three recent champions are back to claim the title once again. First, they have to survive the double-elimination rounds against some scrappy teams who have earned their own right to still be in it. The action gets started on Thursday, live from the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Georgia vs Oklahoma State
Of the two in-state teams playing in the tournament, it was the Cowgirls of Oklahoma State that got the victory in their game, taking down unranked Georgia 3-2. Entering the bottom of the third inning tied 0-0, OSU’s Chyenne Factor took a 1-2 pitch deep for a two-run home run that gave them a lead that would last the rest of the game. The Bulldogs almost put something together late when an error allowed Sydney Kuma to score from second base, cutting into the lead 2-1. Oklahoma responded in the bottom of the inning, going back up 3-1 thanks to some efficient offensive setups.
In the top of the seventh, with one out, Georgia once again got something cooking. A one-out double to left field drove in a run and set the Bulldogs up with the tying run on third and the go-ahead run on second. Oklahoma State’s pitcher, Carrie Eberle, was able to generate a pop-up and a ground-out to escape the inning with the complete-game victory.
