The Western Bulldogs have recorded their fourth-straight victory after downing Greater Western Sydney by 25 points in a commanding AFLW display.
- It is the first time the Bulldogs have won four consecutive matches in a single AFLW season
- Isabel Huntington and Bonnie Toogood kicked three goals each for the Bulldogs
- The Bulldogs lost Deanna Berry to a suspected anterior cruciate injury in the final term
Led superbly by forwards Bonnie Toogood and Isabel Huntington, the Bulldogs were too classy for the Giants and ran out winners 7.5 (47) to 3.4 (22) in their Indigenous-round match at the Whitten Oval on Saturday.
It is the first time the Bulldogs have won four consecutive matches during an AFLW season.
Huntington, who was an All-Australian defender last season, booted three goals to take her to top of the league goal kicking list.
Toogood was just as impressive in snaring three majors, including a stunning goal-of-the-year contender during a match-winning second quarter.
The Bulldogs entered this season with a disappointing 3-10 win-loss record since their 2018 premiership win but have become one of the league’s in-form teams under coach Nathan Burke.
The day ended on a flat note for the home side, however, with Deanna Berry going down with a suspected anterior cruciate injury in the final quarter.
The Giants were best served by Rebecca Beeson and Alyce Parker, while recruit Katherine Smith played her first match since suffering a serious injury in December 2019 when at training for former club Melbourne.
