Match Report: Goulburn claim second consecutive win

The Goulburn Workers Bulldogs have secured back to back wins after scoring 26 unanswered points to run out 26-8 winners over the Gungahlin Bulls at GIO Stadium on Saturday night.

The Bulldogs conceded two tries in the first 20 minutes of the game which was all the scoring the Bulls could produce for the contest.

Ten minutes in and a big left foot step saw Drury Low split the defence and go over untouched to open the scoring.

A swift move to the right and a nice cut out pass from Ryan Lean resulted in a try in the corner to winger Brad Scholes to extend the lead to 8 midway through the first half.

Coming into the final ten minutes of the half and the Bulldogs grabbed their first points with an offload from Timothy Crome finding his winger Patrick Cooke to score in the corner.

The following kick off went dead on the full with the resulting set seeing Josh Fattore pick up the scraps from a poor pass and barged his way over.

Some brute strength within the final minute of the half saw Matt Martin bash his way over from close range to give the Bulldogs a six-point lead at half time.

It took almost twenty minutes for the first points of the second half with Josh Fattore slicing his way through the line for his second of the match to make it 20-8.

With fifteen minutes to play the Bulldogs almost wrapped up the result but for some strong Bulls defence denying Crome from scoring in the corner.

A minute later however saw some slick short passing from the Bulldogs eventually finding Christopher Hart who went over next to the posts.

Bulldogs 26 (Tries: Fattore 2, Cooke, Martin, Hart Goals: Fattore 0/2, Hart 3/3) def Bulls 8 (Tries: Low, Scholes, Goals: Fa’amoe Ioane 0/2)
