LEWISTON, Maine — The Lockport Express, following a 3-2 victory over the New Hampshire Fighting Spirit on Friday, dropped Sunday's game to the same team by a score of 5-2.

The New Hampshire team will move to Lewiston next season and gave their new home crowd a reason to want to watch next year.

New Hampshire, the top team in the Eastern Division of the NA3EHL, scored each of their five goals on the power play, starting at 16:52 of the first period when Mike Heffernan scored, assisted by Nick Pino.

In the second period, Ryan Dunfield notched a goal at 13:51, assisted by Alex Peddle. A mere 10 seconds later, David Fish scored another power play goal, assisted by Heffernan. Pino closed out the second with a goal at 18:35, assisted by Chris Chris Babineau.

The Express attempted a comeback in the third period with goals by Christopher Gasiewicz (from Justin Durkee) at 2:38 and a short-handed goal by Mark Friol (from Peter Guido) at 12:24. Pino countered at 13:10, though, making the final 5-2 in favor of the Fighting Spirit.

With the loss, the Express' record now stands at 23-10-1. The team has seven games remaining before the playoffs — a pair in Syracuse Saturday and Sunday, three in Lockport against league-leading Jersey Shore Feb. 20-22, and a pair Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Feb. 27 and 28.

The Express will host at least one playoff series in Lockport at the conclusion of the regular season, likely against either the Wilkes-Barre Miners or the Roc City Royals, although the Syracuse Stampede are still mathematically in playoff contention.

The Express is hoping to get back to Lewiston again this season, as Androscoggin Bank Colisee will host the NA3EHL Championship Series.
