The South Callaway Bulldogs had never known anything different in their meetings with the Tipton Cardinals, always coming out on the wrong side of the column.
Tim Rulo has been involved in nine of those matchups, six in his present capacity as South Callaway's head football coach and the other three as an assistant. Many of the former contests were decisively one-sided as Tipton - a perennial Class 1 power - roughed up the Bulldogs.
But the encounters with Tipton in recent years have become eagerly anticipated showdowns as South Callaway's success has flourished under Rulo.
On Friday night, the Bulldogs used a little role-reversal to change their history with the Cardinals.
South Callaway's defense extended its shutout streak by forcing five turnovers and the state-ranked Bulldogs shoved Tipton below the .500 mark, posting their first-ever win over the Cardinals in cruising to a comfortable 44-0 triumph.
