The Bulldogs kept the Redeyes goalless in the first term, before extending their lead to 33 points at half-time.

Jed Brain led the hosts’ fightback with four second-half goals, but it was not enough as the Bulldogs had seven individual goal-kickers.

The win drew Strathmerton equal with Blighty on 36 points, with the final score 10.17 (77) to 9.8 (62).

Lenard Clarke was the Redeyes’ best performer alongside Thomas Draffin, Matt O’Connor and Sam Singleton.

●Picola United belted Berrigan 24.14 (168) to 3.2 (20) to rebound from its first loss of the year against Strathmerton the round prior.

Taylor Beard kicked five goals, Dylan Cunningham four and Thomas Byrnes three.

Meanwhile, the Saints languish in fifth position as Jacob Way and Trent Osborne put in a solid shift on Saturday.

●Playing coach Sean Logie led Tocumwal to a 31-point victory against Jerilderie.

Logie booted nine goals as the competition’s fourth-placed side prevailed 16.10 (106) to 11.9 (75).

The Bloods were challenged at three-quarter-time with the visitors getting within 20 points, but Logie’s men skipped away.

Brad Parker (three goals), Stephen Marshall (three) and James Browning (two) were prolific for the Demons, as they kicked their fourth highest score this season.

●Mathoura snared its second win of the season after doing the double against winless Yarroweyah.
