WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — The Lockport Express and Wilkes-Barre Miners had 40 minutes of back and forth hockey tonight — followed by 20 minutes of Lockport dominance.

Lockport's Junior A team returned to its winning ways with a 7-4 victory over the home team, thanks to a three-goal third period, fueled by five Miner penalties.

Dylan Jenkins started the scoring early for the Express, putting the puck past Wilkes-Barre netminder Mathieu Beaudet just 1:36 into the game. Greg Terlov assisted on the goal. Terlov assisted again — as did Frank Vecchio Junior — on another Jenkins goal at 6:09 of the first period. Wilkes-Barre came back to tie it, however, with goals by Brandon McColloch at 10:50 and Derrick Wruble at 14:44. James Lyle and McCulloch assisted on the tying goal.

The second period saw the Miners take the lead at 2:50 on a goal by Ryan Flanagan, assisted by Devin Peterson. Mark Friol tied it back up for Lockport at 9:08, assisted by Jordan Pocobello. Flanagan again put Wilkes-Barre up at 15:34, assisted this time by Stephen Aponik. Just a minute and 12 seconds later, Justin Durkee tied it again for Lockport, unassisted.

Ten minutes and seven seconds went by in the third period without a goal. At the 10:08 mark, Andrew Logar put Lockport up for good, assisted by Nicholas Wilcox. Erick Santiago made it 6-4 at 15:57, assisted by Sam Rydzewski. And Ryan Logar capped the game off at 19:50 with an unassisted empty netter.

According to the NA3EHL, Lockport took only 20 shots on Beaudet. That's a far cry from the shot a minute they averaged in the two home games last weekend against Roc City. Lockport goaltender Sal Salteri, meanwhile saw 12 shots over the 60-minute contest.

Lockport and Wilkes-Barre will play again Saturday at 1 p.m., also at the Toyota Sportsplex in Wilkes-Barre.

Next weekend the Express returns home to play the 3-0 New York Aviators on Friday, followed by a pair of games against the Jersey Shore Wildcats, who defeated the Roc City Royals 7-3 tonight.
