The Express got on the scoreboard in the second quarter when a kick return by Kane Jacques placed the TNT team on the 40 yard line.
Gabe Neil followed up with a TD to get the Express back in the game.
Jacques sprinted to the left side to score early in the third quarter to close the score.
The Express finished off the third quarter with a strong defensive posture that kept the Orangeville squad to mid field.
Back on offence, the Express gained some good yards when Cobin MacInnis caught a pass from quarterback Gabe Neil to bring the squad to a good field position.
That was followed up with a huge run from Evan Medeiros to set up the next plays.
A third Express TD brought the team to within eight points of catching up to the Outlaws.
The Orangeville took a big lead with two late game touchdowns to win the game 38-22.
