McKinnon followed with a goal of his own, assisted by Hamilton at 7:48 in the first.
In the second period, senior Owen Carey made it 3-0 after a steal and a breakaway at 12:11.
McKinnon added another goal to make it 4-0 in the second, on another breakaway.
The third Lancer score of the period came from, junior Tyler Rushton, from the blue line, through traffic in front of the goal.
Londonderry went ahead 6-0 around the eight-minute mark in the second, while short-handed. Hamilton served up a beautiful pass to senior Mike Maloney in front of the net after a steal.
The Astros got their first goal at the buzzer to end the second period 6-1.
In the third, the Lancers added two-more, one from McKinnon, for his hat trick, and PA got one more.
On Saturday, Jan. 13, the Lancers pushed their season record up to 6-0 with a 7-3 win over Nashua North – Souhegan at home.

Coming up next week, LHS will have a special game against Windham High School (5-2) on Saturday, Jan 20 at the Icenter in Salem at 7 p.m.
The game is being used as a fundraiser to go towards the Building Dreams for Marines organization, a local charity that provides housing accommodations to veterans like adding ramps, remodeling bathrooms, amongst other items.
Donations will be taken at the door for the charity event with a special whiteout t-shirt being designed, but people can also wear a white t-shirt to the event.
There will also be a number of raffles taking place, with prizes like restaurant gift cards, gift certificates for golf, yeti coolers, and more.
A chuck-a-duck contest will also take place along with a 50/50 raffle and t-shirt sales.
Organizers are hoping to sell-out the rink on Saturday and they are extending an invitation out to all local service members and veterans. Members of the military will get in for free as will any first responders.
Players from each team will be playing in honor of a veteran from their life – father, grandfather, or a family friend. They will also have special jerseys made with the service member’s name on it.
