Gators, Knights, Seminoles reach NCAA softball regional finals

GAINESVILLE — The No.1 overall seed Florida Gators continued their dominance in the Gainesville Regional on Saturday, but with less ease against the UCF Knights.

Florida defeated UCF 5-0 at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium behind a dominant pitching performance from junior Delanie Gourley — a complete game shutout with 13 strikeouts and just one hit and two walks surrendered. Her season ERA now sits at 0.67 and her record at 19-3.

"My team has my back through the whole game, every game," Gourley said after the win. "That really helps a pitcher's confidence."

Gourley and the Florida (55-5) defense faced a UCF (37-21) lineup that beat FAU 1-0 on Friday with six hits, but the Knights' offense was shut down against the Gators. Shelby Turnier, UCF's senior pitcher, was Florida's biggest challenge. Turnier earned the win against the Owls on Friday with a complete game shutout but faced a different challenge on Saturday in Florida's offense.

Through 6.1 innings pitched, the Gators got to Turnier for eight hits, eight walks and five runs – three of which didn't come until the seventh inning. Turnier, UCF's all-time winningest pitcher, couldn't hold off the No. 1 Gators.

GAINESVILLE — One was pitcher, one a catcher.

One is from Southern California, the other grew up in South Florida.

Both inherited programs at the University of Florida with pockets of success and turned them into national powers.

"One-hundred percent, she did her job," UCF head coach Renee Luers-Gillispie said of Turnier. "She took care of business, kept us in that game."

Freshman Amanda Lorenz got the scoring going for Florida in the top of the third with a solo home run to deep right center field. In the fifth inning, senior Aubree Munro notched her first of two RBI singles on the day and the Gators didn't look back. Florida did leave 12 runners on base, but the five runs scored were enough to earn the win.

The Gators are seeking their third consecutive national championship, but like any team Florida is taking the postseason one game at a time.

The Florida Gators and FSU Seminoles are aiming to extend dominant softball seasons, while four other in-state schools are aiming to pull off major upsets during the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Gainesville Regional features the host Gators (53-5), UCF (36-20), FAU (50-7) and Alabama...

For Lorenz, this is her first NCAA postseason experience — a fun one so far, winning two regional games in her home stadium and hitting .405 with two RBI over Florida's first two games.

"It's just a more exciting vibe in the dugout, it's just an exciting time," Lorenz said. "I'm lovin' it."

UCF bounced back from the loss, earning a 2-1 win over FAU later Saturday. The Knights eliminated the Owls from the regional and advanced to face UF at 5 p.m. Sunday for a spot in the Super Regionals.

Senior Jessica Ujvari hit a walk-off homer off FAU star pitcher Kylee Hanson to secure UCF's win.

"I was really happy I could do that for my team," Ujvari said. "Our entire offense was battling and Kylee Hanson is a great pitcher. For us to come up with that win, it was huge leading into Florida tomorrow."

In Tallahassee, No. 8 FSU earned 4-0 win over South Carolina. The Seminoles face South Carolina again at noon Sunday for the regional crown. USF eliminated FAMU with a 6-4 win, but the Bulls later suffered a 6-0 loss to the Gamecocks and were eliminated from the regional.
