GLENS FALLS, N.Y. -- Byron Dafoe tried, but he couldn't do it all in the Baltimore Skipjacks' 5-3 loss last night to the Adirondack Red Wings at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

Dafoe made 39 saves, including 29 during the final two periods, in trying to protect a 3-0 lead. But the Red Wings' offense couldn't be stopped.

Lonnie Loach and Bill McDougall scored 47 seconds apart midway through the third period to bring the Red Wings from a 3-2 deficit to a 4-3 lead. McDougall and Gord Kruppke had scored late in the second period, at the end of a 21-shot attack against the Skipjacks' rookie goaltender.

Dafoe even had to face a penalty shot along the way. Three minutes before Loach's goal, Ken Quinney was awarded the shot because Dafoe threw his stick at a shot by Adirondack's Marc Potvin. Dafoe wasn't fooled by Quinney's deke, but eventually succumbed to Loach and McDougall, who had their way in front of the Baltimore net for most of the final 40 minutes.
