Dreams were made and dreams shattered on Sunday.

The stakes were high for four teams in the 2022 NCAA Softball Championship. Six of the eight spots in the Women’s College World Series were already taken, and the last two openings came from Sunday’s games in the Super Regionals.

A crucial Game 3 between Florida and Virginia Tech was the first leg of the doubleheader, while a Game 3 between Northwestern and Arizona State was the second.

The other Super Regionals were already decided as Oklahoma defeated Central Florida, Oregon State defeated Stanford, UCLA defeated Duke, Oklahoma State defeated Clemson, Texas defeated Arkansas and Arizona defeated Mississippi.

The Women’s College World Series begins June 2nd and runs through June 9th or 10th in Oklahoma City. Visit NCAA.com for the full schedule and bracket.

Here’s a look at Sunday’s results.


Sunday results

Northwestern vs. Arizona State, 9:30 p.m. ET


Florida def. Virginia Tech, 12-0

So much for Game 3 drama.

It took Florida just five innings to finish off Virginia Tech with a one-sided 12-0 in a game that was never in doubt after the SEC team blew up in the middle innings.

The Gators pushed three runs over in the second with an RBI double from Avery Goelz and RBI singles from Kendra Falby and Skylar Wallace. They then scored six goals in the third to open the game with sacrifice flies from Sam Roe and Goelz and two RBI singles from Wallace and Charla Echols.

It was part of a dominant day for Wallace, who also added a solo home run in the fifth and finished 3-of-4 with four RBI and two runs. Goelz also took three places from her place at the end of the line-up.

While Florida’s offense grabbed the headlines, Lexie Delbrey and Natalie Lugo combined for five shutout innings and conceded just two hits overall. Virginia Tech’s only source of attack was walks, and it was unable to convert any of its five bases on balls into runs.

The result was the 11th Women’s College World Series in program history for Florida.
