RIVALRY THURSDAY: last-second touchdown helps keep Powell undefeated

POWELL, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Powell quarterback Walker Trusley hit receiver Tyler Kirkess with 15 seconds on the clock to give the Panthers the go-ahead touchdown over Oak Ridge on Rivalry Thursday.

Powell came into the game as the No. 3 team in the state and with an opportunity to win a region championship on senior night.

Oak Ridge took an early lead on an 87-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter before Powell tied things right back up on a Baylor Hughes 57-yard touchdown run.

The Wildcats went up 21-7 in the 2nd half but Trusley led the Panthers on three straight scoring drives to down Oak Ridge.
