DERBY — McPherson’s U-18 Lady Express won four of five games over the weekend in the Xtreme Showdown Tournament.

A summary:

• Express 4, Velocity 0 — Allison Weber’s dazzling two-hitter sparked McPherson to its opening-game win, with three of the Express’ runs coming in the second inning. Hannah Marshall stroked a double and single while also scoring two runs. Weber helped her own cause with two hits.

• Express 1, GC Comets 0 — Julie Sinclair threw a four-hit shutout and the only offense was provided by Jasmine Wann, who doubled in Weber with the game’s only run. 

• Express 19, Heat 0 — Madison Hoffman pitched three innings of no-hit ball and this was a no-contest from the start. McPherson scored six in the first and 11 in the second. Wann’s grand slam was the big hit. Chelsey Kerr was 3 for 4, while Sinclair, Marshall, Hoffman and Stevie Stockham all had two hits.

• Express 7, Clash 3 — McPherson broke a 3-all tie with four runs in the sixth inning. The Express pounded 11 hits, including doubles by Wann, Hoffman and Kerr. Wann was 3 for 3 with three RBIs. Sinclair, Hoffman, Kerr and Marissa Axelson all had two hits. Hoffman was the winner in relief.

• GC Comets 7, Express 2 — One bad inning haunted the Express as the Comets avenged an earlier loss based on a six-run third inning. Hoffman’s two-run homer accounted for the McPherson scoring. Weber took the loss, but six of the seven runs were unearned.
