Van Buren, Alma, Cedarville and Mountainburg each suffer a loss in Week 2 of the season.
The Waldron Bulldogs hadn't had much success with 33 consecutive losses going back to beating Subiaco Academy 29-21 back on Oct. 14, 2011.
The Bulldogs of Scott County has begun 2016 with some rousing noise as it combined to win its first two games 94-14 after beating the Cedarville Pirates Friday night at Glen Wisely Field 49-14.
The game wasn't decided until the second half, but the Bulldogs looked like they were going to run away with another win as it led 13-0 in the second quarter (the scoreboard wasn't working until late in the first half.)
The Pirates came sailing back and put together to consecutive scoring drives. The first was a 64-yard pass from Keaton Crowley to Dakota Hopewell. On Waldron's next possession, the Bulldogs fumbled inside their own 20 and Andrew Hernandez recovered it for Cedarville.
Caleb Stockton scored on a 19-yard run and Dillon Strelow added the two-point conversion and the Pirates had its first lead of the season 14-13.
Waldron responded in kind as Trey Williams hit Tristin Brumbelow on an 18-yard strike and the duo connected again for the two-point conversion. The Bulldogs led 21-14 and never looked back.
Williams finished the game with 4 of 6 passing for 97 yards and one touchdown. He also had eight carries for 87 yards and two touchdowns in the second half.
Waldron began the third quarter with an 80-yard kickoff return by Elijah McWilliams to make it 28-14. Williams added his two touchdown runs on the next two possessions and Levi Hayden capped the scoring with a 60-yard touchdown run.
Crowley was 9 of 15 for 164 yards to pace Cedarville's offense. Hopewell hauled in five passes for 135 yards.
The game could possibly have a footnote as Waldron used an ineligible player for two plays. Cedarville's No. 77 and Waldron's Gerardo Lopez were both ejected from the game after the pair had an altercation during the third quarter. Lopez played the next two subsequent downs. The second one was on a 34-yard pass from Williams to Brumbelow to set up Williams 10-yard touchdown run.
