PORTLAND, Maine -- Suddenly, the team that couldn't buy a win just can't seem to lose, especially away from home.The Bandits last night made the Portland Pirates their fourth straight road victim, rolling to a 4-0 victory before a sellout crowd of 6,942 at the Cumberland County Civic Center.The Pirates -- with the league's third-best overall record -- lead the New England Division. On Thursday, they beat the Bandits at Baltimore Arena, 3-2 in overtime. But the Bandits, who have won on each of their three trips to Portland -- including two last year -- prevailed by playing solid two-way hockey.

In the final analysis of the Bandits' late afternoon scrum with the Portland Pirates yesterday at the Baltimore Arena, goaltenders came out as evenly as the final score, 2-2.Baltimore sent 35 shots at Portland goalie Ron Tugnutt. And the Pirates had Mike O'Neill under siege early and late with 35 shots."We're not a .500 team [18-21-5], and Mike's leading the league in wins [18]," said Baltimore coach Walt Kyle. "That tells you all you need to know about the guy."Pirates coach Barry Trotz said much the same thing about Tugnutt: "Three games in 2 1/2 days, and Ronny has been in there for all of them, two wins and a tie on the road.

Frustration was what welled up in the Bandits every time they FTC looked up at the Baltimore Arena scoreboard and saw that they trailed the Portland Pirates.Clearly the team with the most drive and opportunities, the Bandits trailed Portland, 2-1, nearly throughout.Then, Pete LeBoutillier hit a lucky goal, if that's how a flip shot from in back of the net can be described, and the score was tied and overtime was dead ahead.Elation was short-lived, however, and frustration returned momentarily when the home team missed a great chance on a two-on-one break.
