CEDAR FALLS -- Ashley Chesser smashed three home runs and drove in seven to help the University of Northern Iowa softball team split a Missouri Valley Conference doubleheader with Bradley Friday at Robinson-Dresser Complex.
After Bradley (23-16, 10-6) won the opener 9-1 in six innings, the Panthers answered with an 11-2 five-inning victory in game two.
Chesser followed an RBI single by Olivia Brooks and a run-scoring groundout with a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning. She added another two-run blast in the third and a three-run homer in the fourth as the Panthers blew the game open.
