The Florida State softball team is going back to the Women’s College World Series.
With a come-from-behind, 4-3 victory in nine innings Friday night, the No. 10 seed Seminoles ended the season of No. 7 seed LSU in the NCAA Baton Rouge Super Regional.
It will be FSU’s first trip back to the WCWS since the Seminoles won the national title in 2018.
FSU trailed 2-0 through five innings Friday but got one run in each the sixth and seventh innings to tie the score and force extra innings.
Then after LSU took a 3-2 lead in the top of the eighth with a solo home run, FSU junior Elizabeth Mason blasted a homer of her own to send it to the ninth.
That’s when Kiersten Landers laced an RBI single down the third-base line to score Dani Morgan and give the Seminoles the victory. They defeated LSU in the Super Regional opener on Thursday, 1-0.
Junior pitcher Danielle Watson earned the victory in relief, allowing just one run in 4 2/3 innings. Mason led FSU offensively, going 2-for-4 with the home run and 2 RBIs.
