MISHAWAKA â Holding onto a 20-7 buffer in the third quarter, Glennâs chances of a sectional reprisal against Marian were looking pretty good.

Glenn (5-5) hits the road for Marian (7-3) at 7 p.m. tonight looking for a reprisal of last yearâs season-ending loss in a Class 3A Sectional 17 semifinal.
CINCINNATI, Ohio â Ancillaâs menâs soccer team was defeated 7-1 by Cincinnati State Technical on Wednesday in the first round of regional playoffs.
âWe did not have the horses to keep up with Cincinnatiâs quick and powerful attack,â said Ancilla coach Darren Gallgher. âThey are a very well-coached team, and I would not be surprised if they made a deep run.â
Cincinnati came into the match against Ancilla with a 13-5-1 regular season record with a co-championship in the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference.
SOUTH BEND âÂ The idea that this Notre Dame season is otherworldly is a bit absurd to me.
I donât think this season is touched by God because Notre Dame is a Catholic University.
But I do believe sometimes in sports, a team can get going, and despite logic or stats, can do remarkable things.
This yearâs Fighting Irish are that sort of team.
Letâs start with the cold hard facts (not brought to you by any beer company).
Notre Dame is second in the country in fewest points allowed at 9.4 points per game.
The Irish are tied for ninth in sacks and 24th in interceptions.
SOUTH BEND â After Notre Dameâs 17-14 escape from its âtrapâ game Saturday against BYU, the expression used the most by players and coaches afterwards to describe the victory was âIt wasnât pretty, but âŠâ.
But it was a win and the Irish faithful will take it, a sterling 7-0 record, and the No. 5 national ranking that goes with being one of only 11 unbeatens left in college football.
