Cris Vaccaro got the win, but it wasn't like the other 246 in his 15 years as a pro goalie. He didn't make so much as one save.This win was as a coach.While Spirit coach Dave MacWilliams, still complaining of dizziness, watched from the stands, player/assistant coach Vaccaro directed the Spirit (7-2 ) to a 23-17 victory over the Dayton Dynamo last night before 4,724 at the Baltimore Arena.MacWilliams missed practice Thursday and was hospitalized briefly for tests, which were negative, but he was behind the bench Friday night.

Paul Wright again came up empty against his old team.The first time it was because of tight defense by the Spirit's Omid Namazi.This time it was because of an aggravated groin pull.Wright, who led the Spirit in scoring with 146 points last year, has faced Baltimore twice this season with the Wichita Wings and has yet to earn a point.After playing one shift last night, Wright aggravated the groin pull and spent most of the rest of the game on the bench as the Spirit defeated the Wings, 20-19, before 9,323 at the Baltimore Arena, the largest crowd of the season.

Coach Dave MacWilliams called his players "lifeless." He said they stopped playing. He said they didn't put out even 70 percent.Because of that, because he was so angry about the Spirit's lack of effort in last Friday's 20-6 thrashing by the Buffalo Blizzard, MacWilliams stepped up the practice pace this week. He conducted two-a-days Monday and yesterday and might again today. Indeed, he might hold double practices at least once a week the rest of the season."If I have to make practices so hard that games seem easy, I will," MacWilliams said.
