No. 1 Texas advanced to the WCWS championship finals for the second time in three seasons with a 1-0 one-hit shutout of Stanford, eliminating the Cardinal and closing the book on the storied history of Pac-12 softball.

Longhorns freshman Teagan Kavan outdueled Stanford’s NiJaree Canady, last year’s breakout freshman star, for the second time this week, after another 1-hit gem on Thursday in a 4-0 shutout of the Cardinal.

Texas (55-8) stands two wins away from its first national title, awaiting the winner of Tuesday’s semifinal matchup between No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 4 Florida on Wednesday.
