Despite having an intermittent start to their 2022 campaign, the Bunbury Bulldogs have continued to show why they’re the top dogs with a 26-point victory over the Harvey Bulls.

The Bulldogs were quick to take control during the first half of the contest with early goals and strong defensive pressure during Sunday’s clash at Harvey Oval while the Bulls struggled to convert.

Although the Bulls showed promising signs in the early stages of the third term, the Bulldogs held strong to take the victory 14.13 (97) to 10.11 (71).

Bunbury’s Dylan Heasman was named best on ground.

The Bulls took the victory 4.4 (28) to 1.4 (10), including two goals via Megan Minton.
