In the first game of pool play, Mikenzi Wiseman and Aura Adkisson gave the Express a boost, but it wasn't enough to get past the Omaha Quakes-Red. Wiseman and Adkisson both went 2-3 at the plate, with Wiseman driving in two runs.

Kaite Franzen had a solid performance on the mound and the Express trailed 5-3 going into the sixth inning. But in the top of the sixth, the Quakes hit a two-run homerun to put the game out of reach and the Express fell 8-3.

In game two, the Express faced the tournament favorite, Nebraska Fury. The Express lost 13-1, plagued by errors. The Fury had some huge hits on the way to the win.

Reanna Crane was 1-1 at the plate, and Wiseman was 1-2 with an RBI double. Bri Schade took the loss on the mound.

The Express lost game three, 7-4, despite outhitting the Insanity. Christina Yoshida was hot from the plate as she went 2-2.

In the top of the second, the Insanity grabbed a 1-0 lead on a solo home run. The Express answered with a run of their own on Yoshida's RBI single.

The lead stayed with the Insanity after the third, scoring three runs on a double and an error. The Express pushed across one run in the bottom of the fifth, but eventually fell 4-2.

Kayln Hahn and Adkisson went 2-2 at the plate and Wiseman was 1-2 rounding out the Express's seven hits. Kaite Franzen had another solid pitching performance despite the losing effort.

Tournament play was cancelled due to weather.

The Express will be in action in Boulder, Colo. May 31-June 2.
