Video: Macey Wolfe's walk-off home run sends UNI to Missouri Valley softball title game


NORMAL, Ill. — Top-seeded Northern Iowa defeated Wichita State, 6-4, in the semifinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament Friday in Marian Kneer Stadium.

Senior Macey Wolfe was a big reason why, knocking in all six runs for the Panthers, including a walk-off three-run home run with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning.

The win was career win No. 300 for UNI Coach Ryan Jacobs.

UNI (33-18) will face third-seeded Southern Illinois or No. 2 seed Illinois State in the championship at 1 p.m. Saturday.
