Georgia softball advances to WCWS with walk-off over No. 1 Florida
Georgia punches the first ticket to the Women's College World Series as pinch hitter Kaylee Puailoa knocked out a walk-off home run to defeat two-time defending champion Florida, 3-2.
Maeve McGuire provided the potential game-tying run with her infield single before Puailoa stepped up to the plate for Lacey Sumerlin. The senior made it count as she sent the pitch sailing over the centerfield wall.
It is only the third time the Bulldogs have advanced to Oklahoma City and the first since 2010. What better way to earn a spot than knocking out the program's biggest rival?
