Former East Coweta softball player Dani Morgan helped her Florida State teammates stay alive early Saturday at the College World Series with a 7-2 loser's bracket victory over Georgia. Morgan gave the Seminoles a 6-2 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning with a double that drove in two runs.

The Seminoles added a final run in the top of the sixth.

Florida State was scheduled to play a second loser's bracket game late Saturday night.

Florida State took the lead with one run in the bottom of the second and three in the bottom of the fourth.

The Bulldogs rallied back with two runs in the top of five to cut the lead to 4-2.

Florida State dropped a heartbreaker in the first game of the College Softball World Series Thursday night in Oklahoma City, falling to UCLA 7-4.

The Bruins rallied with six-runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead and never looked back.

The Seminoles opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning to take a 4-0 lead. Cali Harrod led off with a

walk and a stolen base along with a UCLA throwing error allowed her to move to third on the play. Morgan recorded FSU's first hit of the game, knocking an RBI single to center to score Harrod.

Morgan finished with a hit and an RBI and scored a run.
