Oklahoma sweeps Texas in dominant fashion to win back-to-back WCWS National titles

After defeating Texas 16-1 in the first game, Oklahoma followed up with another dominant victory. The Sooners used a massive fifth inning to beat the Texans and secure back-to-back WCWS National titles after winning Game 2, 10-5.

It was an early defensive battle as both teams came out of congestion throughout the night – until the game’s opener with a fifth-half lead. Oklahoma would break the tie 2-2 with a rally of 2 that featured an RBI double from Alyssa Britto and three runs from Kinzie Hansen. From there, the Sooners really stepped up on the gas with a six-stroke four-stroke that featured a sacrifice fly that scored Tiare Jennings and Homer a three-stroke from Grace Lyons.

Texas closed the gap a bit in the bottom of the seventh inning, as Mia Scott hit Homer in three to shorten the OU’s lead to five runs, but that wasn’t enough for the Longhorns.

Despite Oklahoma’s dominance late in the game, it was Texans that took a quick lead in the first half, with two runners scoring as fly-bys – Janie Jefferson and Mia Scott. Oklahoma’s attack responded in the third inning when Alyssa Britto scored a goal from second base on a throwback error from Texas Mia Scott. Next, Tylon Snow will hit Kinsey Hanson in the next play.

In Game 1, the Sooners set a WCWS record with six home runs, including two by home record holder Jocelyn Allo. Entering Game 2, Alo had more runs (five) than competitors (four) in WCWS. Although Alo was a competition smash throughout the WCWS cycle, she remained relatively calm in Game 2 – being 1 vs 3 with one walk and one walk.

However, Alo’s struggles on the board didn’t slow the Sooners down, as they extended their lead over opponents to 64-19 during the WCWS 2022 Championship. These 64 runs set a new record in WCWS history. This is Oklahoma’s second consecutive national title and sixth all-time.
