EUGENE, OR -

The Wisconsin Badger softball team is keeping its record setting season alive.

The Badgers defeated North Carolina 6-2 Friday night to advance in the NCAA Softball regional in Eugene, Oregon.

Marissa Mersch had two RBI and Meghan McIntosh pitched a complete game five-hitter for the win.

Wisconsin plays Oregon at noon central time Saturday. The Badgers need to win that game, then beat the Ducks again at 3 o'clock to advance to the Super Regional.

An Oregon win would eliminate Wisconsin and end its season.
