CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The UNI softball team heads to the postseason with momentum on their side. The Panthers defeated Illinois State 2-1 in the regular season finale. UNI won 2 of the 3 games in the series with the Redbirds.

The Panthers opened the scoring in the bottom of the first inning as Chelsea Ross doubled in to the gap in left center field scoring Samantha Olson from second base. Illinois State scored the tying run in the top of the 6th on an RBI single by Shannon Felde. The Panthers, however, responded in the bottom half of the inning as Courtney Krodinger ripped a double off the left field wall scoring Bailey Lange from first base for the eventual winning run.

UNI heads to the Missouri Valley tournament  in Carbondale, Illinois, as the #3 seed. The Panthers open the tournament on Thursday afternoon against the winner of the Evansville and Illinois State game earlier in the day.
