Hockey teams don't often come from behind and triumph when trailing after two periods. The success percentage in the American Hockey League this season was a bit under 9 percent (51 of 569).The team that had the most trouble coming back was the Bandits who, in 36 attempts, were able to recover for four ties, nary a win.Don't look now, gang, but the locals trailed starting the third period in the fifth and deciding playoff game in Hershey last Sunday, and they were down a goal entering the last 20 minutes in the Southern Division final opener against the Syracuse Crunch on Wednesday night.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- It's easy to overlook the contributions of Baltimore Bandits goalie Mike O'Neill.O'Neill is a 28-year-old playing in a developmental league, and his name won't be found among the leaders in goals-against average or save percentage. Yet, he is the reason the Bandits beat the Rochester Americans, 1-0, last night, and he is largely responsible for any chance the team has of making, or succeeding in, the playoffs.O'Neill kept the Bandits in the game, stopping 56 shots for his second shutout of the season.

On a night when Mike O'Neill was being celebrated for playing in his league record 73rd game, the iron-man goaltender wasn't around to pick up the victory as the Bandits were doing in the Hershey Bears, 5-3.No problem. After all, O'Neill had picked up each and every one of the team's 31 victories up to last night's final home game."Ironic isn't it, being the only other guy to pick up a win for the team, especially under these circumstances?" asked Mike Torchia, who turned away 33 of 35 pucks sent his way over the final two periods.

Wilde Lake's Will Edison had the honor of scoring the first basket in River Hill's new gymnasium yesterday.Unfortunately, that was the high point for a Wildecats squad that struggled offensively and defensively before losing to Loyola, 69-47.The season-opening game almost never came off, as workmen struggled to prepare the gym for its inaugural game. Wilde Lake has moved to newly constructed River Hill while its own school is being rebuilt."We weren't sure until 1:30 this afternoon that there would be a game," Wilde Lake athletic director Carol Satterwhite said.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The new year came an hour early for the Bandits as Viacheflev Butseyev's second-period goal was all the lead goaltender Mike O'Neill (29 saves) needed in a 2-1 victory over the Syracuse Crunch.Baltimore (15-19-1) literally held on in the waning moments as Craig Reichert was sent off for holding at 19:44 of the third. With goaltender Mike Fountain on the bench in favor of the extra skater, Syracuse tried a set play.Lonnie Bohonas of the Crunch won the faceoff and sent it to Artur Oktiavbrev.

Loyola annually schedules several quick Howard County teams such as Oakland Mills and Wilde Lake to get itself ready for the rigors of its league season. And traditionally the Dons fare well.They did again yesterday, beating visiting Wilde Lake, 74-56, in the season opener for both teams."We've had some competitive games with Howard County teams over the years," Loyola coach Jerry Savage said. "It's been good for us."The winning ingredients for Loyola were solid 46 percent (27-for-58) shooting, effective man-to-man and 1-3-1 zone defenses and the all-around play of 6-foot-3 senior forward Tim O'Hara (28 points)
