Another six points for the Bulldogs came when a quick play the ball caught out the Ovenden defence and Ben Howe was able to cross the line for his second try of the game with a very long run evading numerous tackle attempts, he then managed to convert his own try.

The visitors did manage to get some points on the board when Robbie Grimley managed to score next to the posts, Jordan Howes converted the try.

The Bulldogs skipper Said Jamal showed the fight and determination of the side when he forced his way over the try line from hooker. The try was converted by Ben Howe.
