KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - East Tennessee high school football fans were treated to a pair of state championship-caliber programs facing off in the opening week of the season at Scarbro Stadium.

In a game which saw 108 combined points, Powell’s defense allowed just 13 second-half points in its come-from-behind win over Anderson County. Carson Whitehead’s pick-six sealed the win for the Panthers in the fourth quarter.

In a game in which the two teams combine for over 100 points, defense isn’t at the forefront of any discussion. But it was the Panthers’ defensive unit that stepped up in the second half, allowing Powell to claw back from a 41-28 deficit late in the third quarter.
