A packed house watched the home team win its second game of the NA3EHL 2K15 Showcase Tournament this afternoon.

The Lockport Express and Maine Wild pay respects during the American
National Anthem before the start of their game. Lockport went on to win
the game, 3-1. 
While the Maine Wild scored first, it was the Lockport Express with the most goals at the end, winning 3-1 in an afternoon game at Cornerstone CFCU Arena. Goals were not easy to come by either, with Maine's Lucas Osborne stopping 44 of the 47 shots against him and Lockport's Giancarlo Muglia stopping 43 of his 44.

Spence Cowand scored the lone Wild goal 5:54 into the first period. Christopher Gasiewicz tied it for the Express at 15:08, assisted by Daniel Golba and Christian Whitcomb. Ryan Logar put the Express up 2-1, assisted by Golba and Gasiewicz. Jordan Pocobello put the exclamation point on the win, scoring unassisted late in the second 25-minute period of the two-period game.

With the win, Lockport is undefeated in its last 12 games and has a 20-6 overall record, while Maine has a record of 9-17-2.

Lockport plays its last game of the showcase at 10 a.m. Sunday against the New England Stars.

Wilkes-Barre, 5 - New Hampshire, 2

Wilkes-Barre players pose for the paparazzi while waiting for the start of
the Lockport Express game this afternoon. The guys were in a good mood
following their 5-2 win earlier against New Hampshire. 
The Wilkes Barre Miners topped the New Hampshire Fighting Spirit 5-2 in each team's second game of the showcase at 9 a.m.

The Miners had goals by five different players and points by ten in today's first NA3EHL game at Cornerstone. Scorers included Derek Bureau, Johannes Leitner, Jonathan Wisten, Guillaume St. Germain, and Arturs Bush. New Hampshire scorers were Nick Pino and Tim Casey.

With the win, Wilkes-Barre improves to 12-15-1. The Fighting Spirit, after an overtime loss last night against league leading Jersey Shore Wildcats, has lost both games in the showcase. Their record now stands at 21-4-1.

New England, 4 - Roc City, 1

New England beat Roc City, 4-1.
The New England Stars took control midway through the first period, scoring three goals in just over two minutes over the Roc City Royals en route to a 4-1 win.

Brian Glover scored a pair for the Stars, while Steve Upton and Ryan Gauvin each added one.

James Lockamyeir netted the goal for Roc City.

New England is now 15-10-2, while Roc City's record stands at 9-17-2.

Jersey Shore, 4 - Cape Cod, 2

Jersey Shore is still perfect after 32 games this season.
The Jersey Shore Wildcats maintained its perfect record on the season, beating the Cap Cod Islanders 4-2 in Cornerstone's "Mullane" rink.

The Wildcats got goals from JaColbie McGowan, Drew Brown, Austin Crane and Ilya Spektor.

Cape Cod's Christian Holmes and James Brosnan scored in the losing effort.

Jersey Shore improves to 32-0, while Cape Cod is now 12-12-3.

Syracuse 7 - East Coast, 0

The Syracuse Stampede beat the East Coast Minutemen, 7-0.
Braeden Pearl scored a hat trick plus one over the East Coast Minutemen this afternoon on the Heinrich rink at Cornerstone Arena while his team, the Syracuse Stampede, won handily 7-0.

Joey Dupuis, Travix Bobb and Felix Landry also netted goals for the Stampede. Pearl assisted on Bobb's and Landry's.

Winless on the season, the East Coast Minutemen tried something new — a 15-year-old in net. Travis Spangle literally stood tall between the pipes. The 6-foot 4-inch netminder from College Station, Texas would have likely preferred to win, but still, stopping 44 shots was likely an unforgettable Junior A debut for the teen.
