Alabama’s number three softball team haven’t lost a single game in nearly two months. Then again, there have been no 20 straight victories against these Florida State Seminoles.
Head coach Lonni Alameda’s squad, who briefly entered the NCAA postseason, continued their historic run in the elimination game by knocking down the Crimson Tide 2-0 on Sunday to force Monday’s match at 7pm. ET
The winner of that game will move on to the Championship Series against Oklahoma or James Madison. The two semi-finalists will play on Monday at 3 p.m. ET.

After four scoreless innings, Florida State led 1-0 when third baseman Sidney Sherrill pulled a full base walk with two outs at the bottom of the fifth.
The Seminoles then scored another insurance chance later when centre-fielder Dani Morgan delivered an extra-base hit and scored in an RBI single by shortstop Josie Muffley.
Star thrower Kathryn Sanderscock came in relief to claim her third win of this WCWS. She pitched the last 2 1/3 innings after Kaylan Arnold pitched 4 2/. First three, Sanderscock is now 27-3 this season.
FSU improves to 47-11-1 while Alabama falls to 52-8.
In addition to winning another game, FSU set a new WCWS record for consecutive wins in elimination games with seven games remaining dating back to 2018.
