WATERLOO (KWWL) -

After a three game road trip to open the season, the Northern Iowa women's soccer team returned home to pick up their first win of the year. The Panthers defeated Saint Ambrose 4-2 on Sunday afternoon at the Cedar Valley Soccer Complex.

UNI took just three minutes to find the back of the net as Kelsey Yarrow scored on a breakaway that ricocheted in off the left post.

After Saint Ambrose scored the equalizer in the 28th minute, the Panthers went back to work. Amber Nieland scored an unassisted goal on a corner kick that curled its way in to the net for a 2-1 edge. Minutes late Sydney Hayden's breakaway goal led to a 3-1 halftime lead.

Nieland added UNI's final tally in the second half with her second goal of the game. UNI's four goals stands as the most scored by the squad since 2012.
