UNI softball sweeps Creighton, still perfect in MVC


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.
