Oklahoma beats Texas in Game 2 to win WCWS for second straight year

OKLAHOMA CITY — Come at the Queens, you best not miss.

Texas had its chances early to derail the coronation of Oklahoma, looking to win the Women’s College World Series for the second consecutive season and the sixth time in the program’s history.

But the Longhorns’ early shot — two first-inning runs — was nothing more than a minor annoyance to the Sooners, who eventually came out swinging and there was little Texas could do to slow the inevitable.

OU blasted the Longhorns 10-5 to sweep the WCWS championship series on Thursday night at USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium.

The Sooners finished the season 59-3, one of the most dominating seasons in NCAA softball history.

The Oklahoma Sooners hold up the national championship trophy after defeating the Texas Longhorns to win the Women's College World Series.

For three innings, it looked like Texas might just force a Game 3.

They were giving OU starter Jordy Bahl fits at the plate and despite a string of leadoff hitters reaching base for the Sooners, OU’s powerful bats couldn’t find a way to string anything more together on Longhorns starter Estelle Czech.

After Wednesday’s 16-1 drubbing by OU, Texas coach Mike White said holding the Sooners’ offense in check was a virtual impossibility.
