The Lions failed to register a score in the third term and the Bulldogs scored two more goals.

The Lions trailed by 54 points at the final change and the visitors kicked one major in the last quarter to cruise to a 10.11 (71) to 1.5 (11) triumph.

Towering forward Lewis Davis was again on fire in the forward line for the winners to finish with seven majors.

Bulldogs midfielder Scott Anderson was superb and won the match ball in the Think Mental Health Round. He was well-supported by Davis and Kane Hinkley.

The Lions were best served by Dean Rintoul, Jack Walter and Harvey Lynch while Fletcher Kent kicked their only goal.

Lake Grace-Pingrup all but secured second spot and a finals double chance, holding on for a thrilling one-point victory against Boxwood Hill at Boxwood in round 11.

Despite their poor kicking in front of goal, Lake Grace-Pingrup prevailed 5.10 (40) to 6.3 (39) in a tense final term.
