ROCHESTER -- The Lockport Express found themselves in an unusual situation Saturday late in the second period -- they were losing. The Roc City Royals were up 3-1 against Lockport's Junior A team with just over four minutes to go in the second.

From that third Roc City goal, however, it was all Lockport. Scoring five unanswered goals, the Express won the game 6-3.

John Melcher kicked off the scoring for the Royals, scoring at 13:42 of the first period, assisted by Connor Guay and Dominic Gruttadauria.

Precisely midway through the second period, Gibson Stuart tied it for the Express, assisted by Frank Vecchio Jr. A mere 10 seconds later, though, Anthony DePetres put the Royals back on top, 2-1. DePetres' goal was assisted by James Lockamyeir. And at 15:53, Lockamyeir scored one of his own from DePetres and Wesley Austin.

At that point, it was 3-1 Royals. Cue Express comeback. Daniel Golba chipped into the Royals' lead at 16:11, assisted by Michael Crissy. And Christopher Gasiewicz tied it at 3 at 17:53, assisted by Mark Friol and Jordan Pocobello.

The scored remained knotted at 3 for the remainder of the second period and through the first 16 minutes of the third. But at 16:48, Gaziewicz scored his second of the game, a power play goal assisted By Golba. Then with less than a minute to go in the game, Anthony Merante scored a pair of short-handed empty-net goals. The first was at 19:19, assisted by Daniel Golba, and the second, just four seconds later, was unassisted.

With the victory, the Express are now 13-6 and remain in second place in the NA3EHL behind the Jersey Shore Wildcats, who remain unbeaten in 19 games.

The Express' next game is Dec. 5 when the East Coast Minutemen travel to Lockport to play at Cornerstone Arena.
