Hailey Dolcini and the Texas Longhorns avoided elimination at the Women’s College World Series with a 5-2 win over Arizona on Sunday and advanced to the final four in tournament play.
The Texas women will play unbeaten Oklahoma State on Monday at 4 p.m., and if they win that game the two teams will face off a second time later in the evening with a place in this week’s World Series finals up for grabs.
Dolcini got the start on Sunday and pitched 3.1 innings for a no-decision, while allowing just two earned runs on three hits and one walk and striking out one.
Teammate Estelle Czech got the win in relief, as the Texas women overcame a 2-1 deficit with three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Monday’s first game is set for 4 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN.
