A seven-goal final quarter from Jurien Bay brought the Saints down to earth as the Bulldogs dug their paws into the second spot on the ladder.

Dandaragan have been something of a giant killer this season taking down both Cervantes and Jurien Bay this season, the only team to do so, and have been sitting in second since round four.

But the Bulldogs were not going to be caught out twice as they charged home to win 20.9 (129) to 107 (67).

The game had started close enough with just one point in it as East Fremantle product Ambrose Ryan started strongly for the Saints along with Matthew Johnson and Todd Kenny.

But the worm started to turn in the second quarter as Jurien kicked four goals with Wayde Twomey and Austin Britza leading the way.

A shoot-out ensued with Saints piling on six goals in the third only for Jurien to respond with seven of their own to stretch their advantage to 24 points.

It was here the Saints appeared to run out of steam as they kicked only one more goal while Bulldogs continued to charge with seven more in the final quarter.

Twomey finished with five and Britza four while Rhys Waters, Curtine Altiner, Anthony Jeffrey and Joel Latham all kicked multiple goals.

In Lancelin, Cervantes were a complete mismatch for the home side as they kicked 108 points in the first half to record a massive 25.11 (161) to 3.1 (19) win.

The Pirates kicked on goal across the first three quarters as the Tiger Sharks piled on the pain to lead by 101 points at the main break.

Isaac Devitt-Boyd led the way with nine goals while Tyson Lord grabbed four of his own as there was little to write home about for the Pirates, who remained rooted to the bottom of the ladder.

There was better news for the Pirates in netball as they defeated Cervantes 58-26 with Elle Armitage, Sarah Whyte and Mickelle McDonald named among the best.

Jurien Bay breezed passed Dandaragan 43-19 in the other clash.

Dandaragan avoided a sweep with a win in the hockey as Brooke Kenny’s solo effort enough for the Saints to claim a 1-0 win.
