The Gophers are going to Oklahoma City!

Needing two out of three wins over LSU in the Minneapolis Super Regional to book their spot in the NCAA Softball World Series, the Gophers needed just two games to punch their ticket.

It's the first time ever that Gophers Softball are going to the World Series.

It was a tense afternoon in Dinkytown, with the game scoreless until Allie Arneson broke the deadlock with a bomb in the fifth.

With the remorseless Amber Fiser keeping things locked down from the mound, the Gophers' route was secured in the top of the 7th, as a single from Emma Burns scored a sliding Katelyn Kemmetmueller.

Seconds later, Burns scored herself off of an RBI from Carlie Brandt.

LSU failed to score in the bottom of the 7th, sending the packed crowd at the Jane Sage Cowles Stadium into raptures.

The College World Series takes place between May 30 and June 5, with the Gophers due to meet the winners of James Madison and UCLA.
