Mac Morgan threw a one-hitter and No. 1 seed Texas rolled past No. 4 Florida 10-0 in five innings on Saturday to reach the Women’s College World Series semifinals.

Morgan took a no-hitter into the fifth inning before Katie Kistler led off the fifth with a single.

Morgan only threw 71 pitches. The junior’s success helped the Longhorns rest freshman ace Teagan Kavan, who threw a one-hitter on Thursday in a win over Stanford.

Texas (54-8) needs one win Monday to reach the best-of-three championship series. The Longhorns are seeking their first national championship after a runner-up finish in 2022.

Florida (52-14) plays No. 14 Alabama in an elimination game on Sunday.

Florida pulled ace Keagan Rothrock in the first inning. The SEC Freshman of the Year gave up four runs and registered just one out.

Ava Brown replaced Rothrock, and the first batter she faced, Alyssa Washington, cranked a 3-run homer. Texas rolled up five runs in the inning to take control.

Mia Scott’s solo shot with two outs in the fourth made it 6-0, and Katie Stewart’s three-run blast later in the inning made it 9-0.
