Express goaltender Tim Schiess warms up before Saturday's game against
the Roc City Royals. Schiess and the Express lost 6-5. (SCOTT LEFFLER /
The Lockport Express scored five times as many goals Saturday night against the Roc City Royals as they did in their opening game. It was still not enough.

The Royals, who bested Lockport 3-1 on Friday, took a second win out of Cornerstone CFCU Arena Saturday, winning 6-5 over the home team. Cameron Clark scored a hat trick to lead the Royals on the night.

It was Roc City's Sam Haile who opened the scoring. Assisted by Zach Bucholz, Haile got it past Lockport goaltender Tim Schiess at 6:19 of the first period. Clark netted his first of the night at 9:59, assisted by Anthony DePetres and Sam Cammilleri. Cammilleri scored his own at 11:48, assisted by Bucholz and DePetres.

Down 3-0, the Express looked like they were in for a long night before scoring a pair within 10 seconds. The first came from Dylan Jenkins at 16:15, assisted by Frank Vecchio Jr. and Ryan Logar. Vecchio made it 3-2 at 16:25, assisted by Jenkins.

Early in the second period, Clark netted his second of the night, putting Roc City back up by 2. Cammilleri and DePetres assisted. Vecchio grabbed his second goal of the night at 11:51. Logar assisted, as did goaltender Schiess. Fourty-two seconds later, Lockport tied it on a goal by Sam Rydzewski, assisted by Gibson Stuart and Jordan Pocobello.

The second period was — once again — marred by penalties by Lockport. For the game, the team served 36 minutes on 14 infractions, with six of them coming in the second. Roc City only scored once, however, on nine power plays in the game.

In the third, Lockport took the lead for the first time on a Stuart goal by Austin Kasperek and Joseph Como at 7:28. However, they could not hold. Jared Tam-Grimshaw's power play goal at 13:44 from Cameron Clark tied the game back up at 5. Clark's third goal of the game at 14:10 from DePetres and Cammilleri secured the win.

Express Head Coach Frank Vecchio said after the game that while his team played better Saturday, he is hoping for more solid defense in future contests.

The Express next play a three-game stand in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., next weekend before returning home on Sept. 25 to face one of the leagues new teams, the New York Aviators.
