Elmwood in Homecoming Loss, 20-0 ELMWOOD — Wethersfield's flying Geese took some of the steam out of the Elmwood homecoming here Friday night as they raced to a 20-0 victory over the Trojans. Wethersfield broke the scoring deadlock in the first quarter when Mike Kull sprinted 20 yards for a touchdown and Willie Stevenson followed with a running extra point. In the second quarter, halfback Larry Evans streaked 60 yards for the touchdown but the conversion attempt failed.

Coach Rich McKllllp'a crew came back to bring a 13-13 standoff into the dressing room at halftlme and sealed the win, their second In two Little Six Conference outings, shortly aft* er the third period got under* way. Senior halfback John Rosene carried the ball across twice within two minutes after intermission and the Bullets were ahead to stay. The 155-pound speedster added an insurance TD in the final period. Lui Spinillo, Prina and Dan hid­ ings shouldered much of the Friar offensive burden and put together several long drives which ended in goal land. The lightning thrusts of Rosene and his running mate, junijr Rod Dennis, proved more than sufficient to overcome these marches. Dennis, also long gone if allowed into the secondary, accounted for the home team's first pair of six-pointers to set an example for Rosene. 'These came on a short scoring pa:j from quarterback Dean Albright and a nine-yard sprint up the middle. The Friars' second touchdown was posted as John Connors went in from six yards out. The Blue Bullets then showed their appreciation for a fine halftime show with the third quarter blitz. Ridings broke into the end zone from a yard out late in *hat same period but Rosene duplicated his effort minutes later. TD's Called Back Penalties, fumbles and blocked punts played a big role in the contest. Both teams had TD 's called back; the Friars' Spinillo legged a punt 60 yards only to have tiie play called back and Hildred Kennett gave up a short plunge into paydirt on a rules infraction. Both Corpus md Knoxville now stand at 2-2 overall. The Bullets are 2-0 in the Conference, however, while coach Jim Phalen's Irish have yet to win in as many Little Six tries. The visitors' first score was set up on a punt blocked by Tom Fox. Knoxville also stopped an attempt to boot the ball downfield in the third period, ending up Touchdown's with a first down on the Friar two-yard marker. Rosene went over two plays lat er to boost the hosts to a 26*13 lead. Long and lofty kicks, both from behind the line of scrimmage and off the kicking tee, put the Friars in the hole on several occasions.

International League Brass Talk With Frick NEW YORK (UPI) - International League officials met Friday with a special committee appointed by Ford Frick and considered the possibility of operating as an 8-, 10- or 12-team league, but adjourned without reaching a decision. League president Tommy Richardson said another meeting would take place on the same subject following the World Series. In 1963 the International operated for the first time with 10 teams — Arkansas, Atlanta, Buffalo, Columbus, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Richmond, Rochester, Syracuse and Toronto. The 10-team two-division arrangement, which operated with a 152-game schedule, has proved unsatisfactory to International League officials who formerly did business under the conventional 154-game, 8-team set up.
