SHREVEPORT, La. -- The Baltimore Stallions pride themselves on strong special teams, and in Friday's 24-17 victory over the Shreveport Pirates, they were at their finest in that phase of the game.Start with the team's most valuable legs. Kicker Carlos Huerta, the Canadian Football League's leading scorer, made three of four field-goal attempts to help the Stallions take a 24-3 lead after three quarters.Punter Josh Miller, also the league's best, made his biggest impact in the first half. Miller, who averaged 57 yards on five punts in the half, ruined the Pirates' field position repeatedly.

SAN ANTONIO -- Baltimore figured its rematch with San Antonio would not resemble last week's rout over the Texans, and the Stallions got the type of game they expected last night at the Alamodome.In a contest that was seemingly deadlocked all night, Baltimore overcame a sluggish offense, injuries to quarterback Tracy Ham, center Nick Subis and punter Josh Miller, and a fine effort from Texans quarterback David Archer to escape with a 28-23 victory before 18,112.The victory gave the Stallions (2-1)

The Stallions were rested and ready, and the opposition hadn't scored an offensive touchdown in more than a month.Baltimore came into yesterday's game with what looked to be a huge advantage over the reeling Toronto Argonauts. And, the Stallions departed with an even bigger win, scoring on their first four possessions and taking a 41-14 victory before 27,853 at Memorial Stadium.Toronto's defense had been more than respectable, allowing 20 points or fewer in four of its past five games. But the Stallions, given great field position by their special teams and effectively mixing the running of Mike Pringle and the passing of Tracy Ham, raced to a 20-7 lead at halftime.

The Preakness means more to Marylanders when there's a Marylander in the race, and this year we have the obvious connection in Orb, the Kentucky Derby winner owned in part by Stuart Janney III, chairman of Bessemer Trust and resident of Butler, in the heart of horse country north of Baltimore. But the other connection is to Orb's daddy. Let's go over this because there's a good story in it. It involves two Maryland brothers who made a bet in California nearly 14 years ago on a racehorse with a screw in his knee.

LOUISVILLE, KY. - Trainer Shug McGaughey came to his barn Sunday morning before the sun had cleared the horizon, as he has done most days for more than 35 years. Dozens of people were gathered there, under the roof, dodging the rain and trying to get a look at Orb, who won the 139th Kentucky Derby on Saturday. The colt munched on hay and observed the scene. He let some girls come pet him and get their picture taken. Orb came out of the mile-and-a-quarter Derby, run over a drenched Churchill Downs track, with no signs of injury or fatigue and will officially begin preparing for a run in the 138th Preakness Stakes on May 18. McGaughey was shuffled from interview to interview, often saying that he still had trouble describing the feeling of winning his first Derby.

Richard Golden became a savior of the Maryland thoroughbred horse breeding industry in 1988 when he teamed with Allaire du Pont and later Tom Bowman to open Northview Stallion Station in Chesapeake City, eventually revitalizing farmland that had been home to one of the most influential sires of all time, Northern Dancer. As Maryland's racing program crumbled and surrounding states boosted purses and the racetrack experience with slot machines, Golden became one of the state's most vocal critics.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Baltimore Stallions halfback Charles Anthony said the credit should go to the defensive line. Linebacker O. J. Brigance, who spent the evening performing well at his old defensive end position, gave the highest praise to the backfield behind him.The bottom line is that both parts of the Baltimore defense combined on a stellar performance in Saturday's 36-8 rout of the Birmingham Barracudas. It was a show that, besides putting Baltimore (4-1) alone atop the Canadian Football League's Southern Division for the first time this season, solidified the Stallions as the league's premier defense.

The Big, Bad and Blue finally have a nickname to go with their slogan -- the Stallions.And, so far, fans are catching on to the name and embracing it."I like it," said Ed Ellis, 24, of Baltimore. "I guess everybody would prefer Colts, but this is our name now."Many fans at last night's game said the new nickname finally gives credibility to the second-year team. Last year, a judge ruled that Baltimore could not use the name CFL Colts, and the team was renamed the Baltimore Football Club after 20,000 people voted in a poll in The Sun not to have a nickname.

Former Baltimore Stallion coach Don Matthews, one of the winningest coaches in the history of the Canadian Football League, has been elected to the CFL Hall of Fame, the league announced Friday. Matthews won 231 games and 5 Grey Cups during his 22-year career, as well as five more as an assistant coach. In 1995, he guided the Stallions to the Grey Cup during the league's brief expansion into the United States, which marked the only time a team outside of Canada won the league championship.
