Oklahoma Softball is once again going back to the National Championship thanks to some late game heroics by Jayda Coleman to give OU a walk-off win, 6-5. The Sooners fell behind early, 5-2 after three innings but battled all the way back and tied it in the sixth.

Coleman stepped into the box for her first at bat in extra innings, and came up clutch.

Kelly Maxwell was fantastic on the mound after a slow start. After giving up five runs through the first three innings, she would throw five innings of shut-out softball to help close out the win.

OU now faces Red River Rival in the Texas Longhorns in a best-of-three National Championship series starting Wednesday evening. All championship games will be aired on Sports Talk 99.1 FM KPGM.
