ATHENS, Ga. — The 14th-seeded Georgia softball team run ruled Virginia Tech Sunday afternoon at Jack Turner Stadium, 12-3, in six innings, punching its ticket to the Super Regional round of the NCAA Tournament. 

Georgia improves to 42-13 on the season and will make its 12th NCAA Super Regional appearance in program history. 

The Bulldogs will take on the winner of game seven in the Tallahassee Regional between (3) Florida State and South Carolina. Dates are TBD for next weekend's Super Regional. 

The Bulldogs' 12 runs came on 13 hits, led by four hits, two home runs, and five RBI from junior Sydney Chambley. Dallis Goodnight and Sara Mosley each tallied two hits while Lyndi Rae Davis joined Mosely with a pair of RBI. Seven hitters of Georgia's starting lineup each had a hit. 

Chambley concludes the NCAA Regional hitting .778 (7-for-9), knocking four home runs, and driving in 13 runs. She slugged 2.111 and scored four times. 

Graduate Shelby Walters pitched a complete game, going six innings, allowing three runs on five hits. She struck out five Hokies and walked none. 

The Bulldogs wasted no time getting on the board in the opening frame. Goodnight led off the game with a double dropped into shallow left. After a flyout and a strikeout, Mosley drove in Goodnight with a double off the wall in left center. She immediately scored on an RBI hit off the bat of Sydney Kuma to go ahead 2-0. Chambley and Jaydyn Goodwin followed with back-to-back home runs to make it a five-run first for the Dogs. 

Chambley's fourth home run of the Regional, this one a two-run shot down the right field line, widened the lead to 7-0 in the top of the third. 

A two-out solo blast off the bat of Davis brought the Bulldogs' lead to 8-0 in the top of the fourth. 

Virginia Tech (39-20) broke up Walters' perfect game bid with a leadoff infield single in the bottom of the fourth. The leadoff single came in to score on a groundout to also break up the shutout, 8-1. The Hokies added another in the inning to cut into Georgia's lead, 8-2. 

A four spot in the top of the sixth made it a 10-run game. With runners in scoring position, an RBI fielder's choice off the bat of Davis plated Ellie Armistead. Three-straight RBI singles from Jayda Kearney, Mosley, and Chambley extended the lead to 12-2. Chambley's hit, her fourth of the game, tied Georgia's NCAA Tournament single-game record. 

A solo home run in the bottom of the inning finished the scoring in the game, 12-3.
