The Lockport Express dominated the East Coast Minutemen for a second straight game on Saturday, scoring 16 goals against the Salem, N.H. team at Cornerstone CFCU Arena.

Dillon Hayes, who had a hat trick against East Coast Friday night, picked right up where he left off, scoring 1:01 into the first period with assists from Justin Durkee and Justin Blake. Mark Friol made it 2-0 Lockport at 6:25, assisted by Austin Kasperek and Alex Bottenfield. Blake then made it 3-0 at 8:48, with help from Ryan Logar and Michael Crissy.

In the second period, Anthony Merante made it 4-0, Lockport with assists by Daniel Golbak and Peter Guido at 0:43. Jacob Burford then scored, assisted by Crissy and Logar. East Coast got it's first goal of the game at 2:22 from Samu Landen — unassisted. He added another at 10:54 from Bryan Sieber, making it 8-2 Lockport after goals from Merante (Brooks assisted at 8:17) and Frank Vecchio Jr. (assisted by Burford and Jeff Avolio at 9:40).

Vecchio added another, assisted by Merante and Friol at 14:54. A little over a minute later, Logar scored from Christian Whitcomb and Hayes at 16:10. Christopher Gasiewicz made it 11-2, assisted by Whitcomb and Hayes at 16:46. Burford scored from Logar and Whitcomb at 17:38. Just 11 seconds later, Golba tallied another from Blake and Durkee. And about a half minute later the same trio scored again — with Blake getting the goal.

The Express offense slowed down in the third, going nearly 11 minutes into the period without a goal. But at 10:58, Friol made it 14-2 from Vecchio and Merante. Then at 11:50, Gasiewicz scored from Hayes and Durkee. Finally at 14:16, Blake scored from Golba and Logar, giving the game its 16-2 final.

In all, nine Lockport players scored with Blake getting the hat trick and five other players nearly doing so. Absent from the scoring is Lockport's star offensive player Nick Siracuse who left the game in the first period due to injury.

The Express' next game is at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cornerstone Arena against the Roc City Royals.
