Around the world

New Orleans: Despite a second-half blackout that some say spurred a San Francisco 49er comeback, the Ravens held them off 34-31 to win Super Bowl XLVII. This marks the Ravens second Super Bowl championship in the franchise’s history.

Spain: For the first time in his stellar 10-year career, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo scored an own goal in last Saturday’s match against Granada. The goal would be the only of the game as a tired Real Madrid could never recover from the own goal and lost 1-0, continuing their dismal season in La Liga.

Washington D.C.: Winger Chris Kunitz had a hat trick and Sidney Crosby contributed three assists to push the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Washington Capitals last Sunday 3-2. The Penguins are first in the NHL Atlantic Division.

St. Louis: Sixteen-year-old Mary Cain smashed previous high school indoor records for the 2-mile event last Saturday, racing to a 9:38.68 finish. Cain finished 17 seconds ahead of the previous record.
