Huskies bounce Sooners from softball tourney


After the Sooners took the first game in the series 6-0, the Huskies rebounded on Friday to take the next two games in the series to punch their ticket to the WCWS.  The Huskies won the second game 3-0 and took the deciding game 4-0.  I was hoping that we were going to follow in the footsteps of Tennessee who pulled a big upset over the #2 seed, Michigan to get to OKC, but it was not to be.

It looks like the Sooners ran into a buzzsaw on the Huskies in the name of Danielle Lawrie who struck out 17 (remember these are only 7 inning games) in the third game to send the Huskies to OKC.  It was a bad time for the Sooner offense to fall flat as it was the first time in the entire season that we had been shutout in back-to-back games and the first time since March 19 that we had lost back-to-back games, a span of 28 games.

The Sooners lose one of their big offensive threats in Amber Flores to graduation, but graduate only one additional senior from this year's team.  Keilani Ricketts who had a stellar freshman year will return and has a good shot at setting records including strikeouts in a season that she just missed out on this year finishing just ten shy of the record.
