 Northern Iowa softball team rallied in the final inning on Tuesday to defeat the Drake Bulldogs 3-2. The Panthers (18-22, 12-7 MVC) scored two runs in the last inning to win the series by taking two games against the Bulldogs.
It was a pitchers duel for the first five innings between Chelsea Ross and Nicole Newman, with both tossing five scoreless innings to open the contest. Drake got on the board first, scoring on a two-run home run by Hayley Nybo to take a 2-0 lead.


Kennedy Bailey hit a solo shot to left field the following inning to cut the lead down to one, her fourth home run of the season and her third in the last four games.
