The Cyclones used an eight-run second inning to blow the contest open. All eight of Iowa State's runs in the second were unearned as a result of two Panther errors. 

The Panthers got some offense going in the top of the third when Tianna Drahn would reach on a fielder's choice. A single from Brittney Roby advanced Drahn to second. Both Drahn and Roby would advance a base after a wild pitch from ISU's Emma Hylen. Macey Wolfe hit a single up the middle and knocked in two runs with Drahn and Roby reaching home to cut Iowa State's lead to 9-2.
