The game between Knox Central and Pulaski Southwestern in the 2015 Appalachian Bowl at Clay County High School Saturday night was largely a defensive struggle. Almost midway through the second quarter, neither team had scored.

The Panthers were finally able to get on the board first when Nick Martin hit a field goal with 6:40 left in the first half. Southwestern would immediately respond, however, when freshman JP Vaught ran back the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown. With 6:19 remaining in the second quarter, the Warriors led 6-3.
