For the second straight day, Florida State was held scoreless by South Carolina for five innings and for the second straight day, FSU scored two runs in the sixth inning to go ahead for good. The Seminoles defeated the Gamecocks 2-1 on Sunday to advance to the NCAA Super Regionals.

After FSU pitchers opened the Tallahassee Regional by working 17 straight shutout innings, South Carolina finally got to Meghan King on Sunday with a run in the fourth inning. Victoria Williams’ sacrifice fly brought home Kaylea Snaer to give South Carolina a 1-0 lead. Snaer had two of the six hits for the Gamecocks.

ACC Player of the Year Alex Powers would even the game for FSU in the bottom of the 6th with an RBI single. Sydney Broderick followed that up with an RBI single of her own to give the Seminoles the lead.

King allowed just a run on six hits while walking none and striking out three to get the win for Florida State. Jessica Elliott took the loss for South Carolina.

FSU moves on to host the best-of-three Super Regional where it will face either Kentucky or Utah.
