Northern Iowa softball team earned a 3-2 victory over in-state rival Iowa State on Wednesday afternoon. The Panthers (25-11) got solid work out of freshman Bailey Lange in the circle as she allowed just one earned run and struck out a career-high eight batters in her first seven-inning complete game. 

Lange got help from the Panther offense after tossing back-to-back innings where she retired the Cyclone batters in order.  

Courtney Krodinger leadoff the second inning with a single up the middle before eventually scoring the first run of the day on a wild pitch. Caitlin Wnek reached on an error with two-outs, scoring Anna Varriano in the process to give the Panthers a 2-0 advantage. Wnek finished the day 2-3 at the plate while reaching base three times.
