OU recently beat the Northwestern Wildcats in the NCAA softball WCWS opener
Patty Gasso initiated the discussion.
Jocelyn Alo finishes.
Alo’s rhetoric sparked an OU offense that seemed to be the first of its kind, and sparked an unprecedented riot at the Women’s College World Series.
OR turned the back and forth of the monster innings, turning their ugly muscles into a 13-2, victory for five Northwestern innings at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium.
The Sooners (55-2) will take on Texas – one of two teams to beat OR this season – at 2 p.m. Saturday.
Northwestern (45-12) will play UCLA at 6pm on Friday in the playoffs.
Wildlife co-founder Danielle Williams made a lot of Sooners ‘game look silly in the first two episodes, bringing back the vision of James Madison’s Odicci Alexander who excelled in WCWS last year with The Sooners’ first frustration.
Williams’ transformation shocked OR at first, making some of the best strikers in college seem foolish to be ahead of the ball.

Gasso, a well-known OU coach, prepared his team for the Williams event.
But after the second inning, Gasso’s voice changed.
“It came from a violent conversation,” Gasso said.
This is where Alo intervened, and Gasso stepped back.
“We have a very straightforward program, but if Jocy jumps, he should say what he means,” Gasso said. “I just go out to be alone.
“The answer was on the roof.”

Things took a turn for the worse for Sooners in the third quarter after the late Rachel Lewis who lives alone Hope Trautwein had OR’s first follow-up in the postseason.
But Trautwein came out of the inning and then the OU strikers did what they had been doing all this time – giving the opponents a nightmare.
The difference in the first two innings was evident when Rylie Boone set up a third with a laser shot on Lewis’s Northwestern head to the right.

When he stood up again, Boone clapped both his hands on the ground.
“I found you,” Boone shouted straight at the Sooners’ porch.
Boone was the first of six consecutive beats to reach the start.
Jana Johns followed with one on the left to build the game, before Jayda Coleman’s song was over and Alo’s journey filled the foundation.
Tiare Jennings then blew Williams’ first words – a change – over the middle wall, making the crowd of Sooners fans crazy.
“I just kind of saved my time like I did,” Jennings said. “I kind of felt like it was coming for the first time, so I saw the ball instead and left there.”
Gasso preached about the need for time to enter the game, but seeing it in person is very different from experiencing it.
But Coleman, the OR shooter, before his return, the OR changed.
“Just focus on hitting the ball, letting it go deep and just hitting the right spot because we had just started all the games,” said Johns, “and I think I let the air get to you. You just breathe and stick.”

Boone also gave a second hit in the inning, the only one in the middle, placing the Sooners 6-1 after three.
The attack continued for the fourth time, with the first four fighters arriving as Johns presented a second OU threat of the day to establish OU 13-1.
They were the fastest runners with the Sooners in their 61 WCWS game.
They have already scored 10 times – last season in a 10-3 victory over UCLA and a 10-2 win over Texas in 2013. Over the years, OR won the national competition.
Jennings’ grand slam was also the first in the history of the WCWS program, and OU was just the second team in WCWS history to hit two slams in the game, joining Georgia in 2009.
The success of the rules was a record for the Sooners program at number 39 of the season as well as the fourth quarter of the postseason game.
