JAY PARKS SCORED ON a 71-yard pass from John Bowers to help North Central get past East Clarendon on Friday.
After playing visiting East Clarendon to a standoff in a scoreless first quarter, North Central head football coach Louis Clyburn briefly thought of reworking his team’s schedule the next time around.That passing thought quickly dissipated as the host Knights scored the next 28 straight points for a 28-6 victory over the Wolverines.The win was the first of the season for NC, which improved to 1-2. But the 1A visitors gave the Knights all they wanted and, then some, in this first meeting between the two sides in football.“East Clarendon is a pretty good football team,” Clyburn said. “I didn’t do a real good job lining up our non-conference schedule.”The Wolverines (1-1) came into Boonetown with a roster which may not have been large in numbers, but which had ample size along the interior lines with both teams playing a majority of their linemen on each side of the ball.
