The Napanee U17 Express are headed to the semifinals of the Fast Pitch Canadians in Saskatoon.

Napanee clinched their spot with an 8-1 mercy win over the host Saskatoon Selects earlier this afternoon. Tied at 1-1 after the top of the third, the Express broke out the bats and scored at least once in the final four innings, punctuated with a three-run sixth inning to invoke the mercy rue.

Jack Madden drove in three runs while Luke Paul added two. Gavin Brooks pitched the complete game for the Express, allowing five hits while striking out nine.

Napanee will not take on the Wilmot Thunder in just a few minutes with a trip to the gold medal on the line. Napanee has assured itself of at least a bronze medal.

The winner of this match up will take on the Chatsworth Longhorns just a few minutes after the conclusion of the bronze medal game.
