SCOTT CITY -- The streak is finally over.

After 32 straight losses over a span of three seasons, the Portageville Bulldogs finally put one in the win column on Friday night with a 35-0 romp over the Scott City Rams.

"I've just waited a long time for this," senior Lee Wallace said. "Three years of playing football -- there's nothing like it. I've waited for this for so long."

Wallace has been a part of the Bulldog losing skid ever since it began three seasons ago, along with two other seniors; Aaron Utterback and Cody Samples. Wallace is also the son of Portageville head coach Lee Wallace who has been a part of their dreaded losing streak as well.
