The Taylor County Bulldogs used a complete team effort and numerous big plays to pull out a 34-33 overtime victory over district foe Madison County, Friday night in Perry – ending a 22-year losing skid that included 20 straight losses to their longtime arch-rivals from neighboring Madison.

“It was an awesome feeling when the game was over to see so many fans and people from our community so ecstatic about finally getting the monkey off our back when it comes to Madison. This is the kind of win that can transform a football program,” Taylor County Head Coach Ryan Smith said.
