TYNGSBORO, Mass. -- The Lockport Express scored 13 goals against the Northeast Generals this morning in the team's second of two games at the first NA3EHL showcase of the 2015-2016 season.

Sam Rydzewski had a hat trick for Lockport and four other players -- Dylan Jenkins, Erick Santiago, Mark Friol and Christopher Gaziewicz -- each tallied two. Frank Vecchio Jr. and Jordon Pocobello also chimed in with goals for the Express. Eleven players tallied points for the Express, now 7-4-1 on the season.

Jenkins started the scoring for the Express a mere 1;20 into the first period, assisted by Santiago and Vecchio Jr. Tommy Bellew tied it for the Generals with a power play goal at 4:37, assisted by Travis Hyde and Chris McHugh. Then it was off to the races for Lockport as Santiago scored at 9:18, assisted by Anthony Tomassi and Vecchio Jr., Rydzewski sored his first goal at 16:00 from Greg Terlov and Andrew Logar, followed 48 seconds later by his second from Andrew Logar and Terlov. Santiago scored again at 19:05 from Vecchio Jr., and Jenkins.

In the second period, Jenkins scored short handed at 1:52 from Andrew Logar and Joseph Como. Vecchio Jr.'s goal came at 7:54 from Santiago and Jenkins, followed by a pair from Mark Friol. The first was the team's second short-handed goal at 17:50 from Andrew Logar, followed just under a minute later by Friol's second from Andrew Logar and Terlov.

Down 9-1, the Generals attempted to mount a comeback in the third with a pair of quick goals. Kevin Perry scored 22 seconds in from Paul MacDonald and Austin Braley. Braley notched one of his own at 1:02 from Derric Trudeau and MacDonald. That ended the Generals' comeback bid. Gasiewicz scored at 2:20 from Friol and Ryan Logar. He scored again at 8:39 from Ryan Logar and Devin Kasperek. Rydzewski capped the hat trick at 9:18 from Andrew Logar and Gibson Stuart. Pocobello finished the scoring at 11:23 from Nicholas Wilcox and Fankie Bodami.

Express netminder Tim Schiess stopped 16 of the 19 shots he faced.

Head Coach Frank Vecchio said today's victory was much more impressive than Saturday's 6-4 win over the Maine Wild.

"We used our speed and we got a lot of pucks to the net," he said by phone, calling it a "much better effort today."

On Saturday, he said, the team got a good start but "kind of went into a lull" before being saved by "some good leadership" by the team's veterans.

The Express return to Lockport to play a pair of games against regional rival the Roc City Royals on Friday and Saturday. Those games will be broadcast live on East Niagara Radio.
