The game was taken away from the Double Blues in the second & third quarter with the Dogs kicking 5 goals to Sturt’s zero to lead by a comfortable 42 point margin at the final break.
Clearance work by ruckman Jakob Thomson and midfielders Jakob Templeton and Ethan Gant saw the Dogs dominate the inside 50 count.
Repeat inside 50’s came off the tireless work of forwards Tyson Richard. Nicholas Lange and Jordan Dorizzi.
The Bulldogs will take on the Eagles on Saturday at Thebarton Oval at 11:00am.
