Northern Iowa softball team fell in their second round matchup in Missouri Valley Conference Tournament to Illinois State 8-2 on Thursday evening.
The Panthers (22-28) never led in the ballgame as the Redbirds got on the board first, scoring three runs on two home runs to take the early lead in the third inning.


Caitlin Wnek homered to center field for the Panthers' first UNI run in the bottom of the third inning to cut ISU's lead down to two, 3-1. UNI loaded the bases with two outs but left the runners stranded to end the inning and the scoring threat.


ISU countered with three runs over the next  three innings to grab a 6-1 lead.
