Missouri softball falls to Washington one to nothing

      Missouri softball came just short of the program's seventh Women's College World Series, losing to the Washington Huskies, 1-0, in game two of its NCAA Super Regional matchup.

      The loss, which brings the Tigers' season to a close, was in large part due to a strong pitching performance by the Huskies, who threw a combined two-hitter.

      Mizzou starter Chelsea Thomas (Pleasantville, Iowa) was valiant in defeat, also throwing a two-hitter and allowing only one run in 7.0 innings.

      Despite her strong performance on the mound, the Tiger bats fell silent, and Washington, on the back of a Victoria Hayward leadoff solo home, run was able to claim victory - and a berth in the Women's College World Series.
