The Western Bulldogs have recorded back-to-back wins for the first time in the 2021 VFLW season.
After a thumping 69-point win against the Darebin Falcons last week, the Bulldogs backed that up with an impressive performance against the Southern Saints.
Little separated the Bulldogs and Saints for most of the night – but the hosts kicked ahead late in the contest to record a 18-point win at VU Whitten Oval.
It’s the Bulldogs’ third win in eight games this season.
The Saints had the only two scoring shots in the first quarter – both behinds – and the Bulldogs found the first goal of the game in the second term to flip that margin at half-time.
They had a few opportunities to build on that lead in the third term, but could only make it 11 points as the Saints stayed in the game.
A two-goal final term made certain of the result. AFLW-listed pair Dani Marshall and Nell Morris-Dalton split the Bulldogs’ goals, kicking two each.
The Bulldogs will be out to make it three in a row when they take on Geelong at Deakin University next Saturday.
