COLUMBIA, Mo. (KOLD News 13) - The Arizona Wildcats are one win from the Super Regional round of the NCAA softball tournament.

Hanah Bowen tossed a complete game shutout early Saturday as Arizona beat Missouri 2-0 in the Columbia Regional.

Carlie Scupin crushed a two-run home run in the fifth inning, which was more than enough for Bowen to get the win.

Bowen gave up only four hits and struck out six in seven innings of work.

In the third inning, severe weather in the Columbia area forced the game to be delayed for more than an hour.

Arizona will face Missouri again at 1 p.m. Sunday. If Arizona wins, the Wildcats advance to Super Regional in Tallahassee, Florida.

If Missouri wins, the teams will play against at 3:30 p.m.

Missouri advanced to the championship round with a 2-0 win over Missouri State late Saturday night.
