TERRE HAUTE — Some of Monday’s headlines in sports pages pretty well summed up another interesting weekend in the National Football League.

Seattle Slew

• Indianapolis defeats Seattle 34-28 and should have convinced more folks the Colts are for real. For the third game in a row, they did not allow the opposition to score a second-half touchdown.

Bengals deny Brady

Tale of two Mannings: 0-5 and 5-0

• Carmel cruises — The season ended for all Indiana high school girls golf teams last week with the state finals played at The Legends of Indiana.

The strength of the Roncalli Regional again was borne out in the results.

Carmel finished second in the regional and won the state. The Greyhounds shot 604 to finish 27 shots ahead of Penn, ranked No. 1 most of the season. Zionsville, the winner of the regional, took third with 639.

Two Carmel players, Makenzie Curtis and Maggie Rees, finished third and fourth, respectively, as individuals. They are on the all-state list released Monday along with Lucy Stevens of Zionsville.
