After forcing a Danville punt, West launched a drive from deep in its own territory with halfback John Schuster racing Brock Baffles New York Mets Clarksville Pops Lincoln Wolves 14-0 C L A R K S V I L L E -- T h e Lincoln Wolves found things bit frustrating as they dropped their season opener to a hardy Clarksvillc bunch 14-0 here Friday evening. Lincoln certainly had their chances. On the first offensive play quarterback Preston Brock completed a long pass with two receivers wide open, however, a collision between the t w o teammates prevented a touchdown and stalled the drive. On the next series the Woves broke a sweep to the Clarksville seven, but the play was called back on the game's only clipping penalty. The passing game was t h e most fertile point of attack for Wolves. Qaurterback Brock threw for 126 yards and favorite receiver Leonard Cox snagged four of them. Yet it was the running game that failed the Lincoln bunch precisely wher it was needed. Lincoln running backs could produce only, 45 yards for the evening, a situation sure lo be remedied by next week. Lincoln's defense played wel holding Clarksville . pointless until midway in the thirr stanza. The first touchdown came when Mike Hardy intercepted a Lincoln aerial and rar 30 yards to the endzone. The home team faked the extra point kick and Clifford ft charged into the endzonc for the two pointer, Clarksville struck again late in the period with a 40 yar drive canped by Clifford May's one yard burst off tackle.

Kenneth Gilkcy ran for the 2-point con- 'ersion lo put Danville aheac o slay at 8-7. The Danville Irive had been helped along by pair of 15-yard penalties igainst West Fork, and penal- ies continued to'plague the vis- tors throughout the game. With only 12 seconds left in he half, Danville picked up Its second six-pointer when Billj Wells barely lunged in from one ard away after West Fork hat leld for three clowns-inside the 'ivc.

The Lions picked up their first touchdown w i t h 6:15 remaining i n t h e opening period when Hatfield and halfback Gil Eaton combined on a 48-yard pass play, followed by a Hatfield to Eddie Scanflin pass for the two extra points. With 5:45 left in the second q u a r t e r , Hatfield unwound again, this time connecting with end Vernon Meek for a 10-yard aerial to cap a 65-yard Gravette drive.

Graveltc bunched a lot ni scoring into the fourth quarter starting tilings off with 10:1' left In the game on an 8-yar( pass from Halficld to fullback St. Louis Whiz Now Has 101 ST. LOUIS AP) -- "It's like rying to keep water from gong over the dam," an amazed :arry Parker conceded. "You now what's coming, but you're the New York owerless." And Parker, Jets' right-hander, spoke from Irst-hand experience after he /as smitten on successive /itches Friday night by base- teallng star Lou Brock. Brock exploded after drilling single for the St. Louis Cardi- als to open the eighth in a 3-0 }ards win. One pitch later the flying per- former was on second with his 100th theft of the season and on the next delivery, with a crowd of 21,832 roaring, he was at third with No. 101. "It's amazing, and I guess it would be kind of fun to watch him if you weren't the pitcher on the mound," said Parker, who had relieved Mets' starter Jerry Koosman at the start of the inning. "But he's the best baserunner in the major leagues as far as I'm concerned," Parker acknowledged. "Even though he's old as far as ballplayers are concerned, he hasn't slowed down that much." In the Cards' clubhouse the feat was taken in stride by the 35-year-old Brock, who reposed stripped to the waist on a stool. "It's you guys who are worried about when I'm going to break the record, not me," he said mirthfully. "I've got time. How about you?" Time, indeed is In Brock's favor in his relentless pursuit of Maury Wills' once seemingy impregnable record of 104 for one season. Whereas Wills, now a net- work 101st broadcaster, stole his during a 1962 playoff ame in October, the fleet Cart n a 1 s ' matching accomplishment ame with 24 regular season games to go. "Maury thinks he may be in town tomorrow night," advised Brock, who has been in close contact with the former Los Angles Dodgers star. "This isn't something that's taking away from his acom- plishment. What this does really Is help people relive, what he did 12 years ago." : Arkansas Scores HIGH SCHOOL LR Central 13, Marianna 0 Pine Bluff 22, Forrest City 7 West Memphis 13, LR Hall 6 LR Catholic 27, LR Mills 14 NLR Northeast 27, Conway 7 Texarkana, Tex., 14, Texar- tana, Ark., 0 Hot Springs 21, Malvern 0 FS Southside 14, NLR Ole Main 0 Mountain Home 28, Marshall 0 Blytheville 13, Helena 7 Springdale 16, Spiro, Okla., 0 Fayelteville 14, flentonville 6 Russellville 20, Benton 12 Van Buren 35, Alma 0 Searcy 27, Joe T.
