Pulaski holds off Warriors, 40-24

Somerset — The Pulaski County Maroons tied a bow on a perfect 10-0 regular season last night with a 40-24 victory over arch-rival Southwestern, however the Warriors certainly didn’t go down without a fight.

Southwestern outgained PC for the game in total offense 322-308, however the Maroons countered that by scoring on an interception return and a kickoff return, overcoming the huge nights by the Warriors backfield duo of Logan Campisano and Skylar Stigall.

It was Smith’s 3-yard plunge early in the first quarter that got PC off and running with a 6-0 lead.

Smith then returned the opening onsides kick to get the second half underway 51 yards for his third TD of the night, extending the lead out to 27-12.

Campisano cut the deficit to 27-18 with a 2-yard run, but George Gregory sealed the win with a 70-yard interception return for another score.
