Oregon softball beats Arkansas; now one win away from making Super Regional

On Saturday, Oregon softball used an 8-run fifth inning to defeat Arkansas on their home field at the Fayetteville Regional.

With wins over Notre Dame and the Razorbacks, the Ducks need one more win on Sunday to make a Super Regional.

The Ducks haven't made it to that stage since 2018.

Through the first four innings, the Ducks and Razorbacks traded leads back and forth. Arkansas seized a 3-2 lead on a 2-RBI Cylie Halvorson homer in the bottom fourth.

But Missy Lombardi's group wasn't fazed, as they exploded for 8 runs in the fifth to run away with the victory. Four of those runs were thanks to a grand slam by Tehya Bird.

"I think this group has done a really good job of answering back," said Lombardi after the win. "And not just this year. I think it's something this group has done over the years."

Oregon can lock up the regional with a win at 11:00 am on Sunday. Their opponent is still to be determined.

Should the Ducks lose, they can still win the regional in a second game later in the afternoon, due to the double elimination format.
