The Western Bulldogs shrugged off the announcement of a snap lockdown in Victoria, refusing to be put on a leash, as they beat Geelong under Friday night lights at GMHBA Stadium.

Geelong’s desperation to register their first win was tangible but it was a bare scoreboard initially with both teams holding strong defensively. The only major of the quarter came off the boot of Dogs forward Isabel Huntington.

It remained a tight tussle in the second term, with the Bulldogs owning the forward half entries but Dogs skipper Ellie Blackburn was unable to convert, lining up a set shot at the half time siren and narrowly missing their opportunity to extend their lead.
