UNI softball sweeps Creighton, still perfect in MVC

Posted:

The UNI softball team took another big step towards their first ever regular season Missouri Valley title Sunday afternoon.  The Panthers swept second place Creighton 5-4 and 15-3 to move to a perfect 14-0 in conference play.

The Panthers rallied with a 3 spot in the 7th to overcome a 4-2 deficit in game one.  Laura Turner singled in Mackenzie Daigh to break up a 4-4 tie and provide the winning margin.

UNI busted out the whooping stick in game 2.  The Panthers pounded 17 hits invoking the mercy rule for a 15-3 win in 5 innings.  Senior Whitney Plein provided the most fireworks going 3-4 with a pair of home runs, a triple, and 3 RBI's in the Panther win.

UNI next hits the road to Peoria for a doubleheader at Bradley on Wednesday.
