CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

Anna Variano drilled a walk-off eighth inning home run off of the scoreboard in left field to power UNI to a 3-2 win over Evansville. The win completed a 3-game sweep of the Aces and moved the Panthers in to a second place tie in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Jaci Spencer picked up the win for the Panthers in a relief role. She allowed no runs and just two hits in the final three innings.

UNI opened the scoring on a solo home run from Ashley Chesser in the second inning. After Evansville took a 2-1 lead in the fourth, the Panthers tied things two innings later on and RBI double in to the right-centerfield gap off of the bat of Sammey Bunch. The RBI was the 10th of the weekend for Bunch.
