Saturday’s win leavesthe Cats in 10thposition on the Central Highlands Football League ladder, three games behind eighth-placed Ballan.

The spirited resistance of the Bulldogs was on display from the opening ball-up, as they stunnedthe Cats to establisha three-goal lead.

Jeremy Steen, Michael Cummings and Emlyn Nettleton were in fine form for the Bulldogs, whichwere clearly driven to avoid another thrashing after their 130-point loss to Springbank a week earlier.

However, with their slimfinals hopes on the line, the Cats clicked into gear andreduced the lead to three-points by the main break.

For the visitors, star onballer Dan Wehrung was running riot, while Lachlan Shaw also got on thescoreboard.

With both sides determined not to lose the four points, a relentless half of footy followed withconstant goal­for-­goal action.

Cats forward Will Young, coaching with Wehrung in the absence of brother Kal, finally came into his own withtwo goals.However, the Bulldogs’ Patrick Rowe and Robert Rodgers matched his efforts to land athree-point advantageby the final change.

The ever-­improving Cats held strong in the last quarter to gather a crucial victory, which Wehrung said was an attribute his side had learned in the past year.

Young finished with four majors to his name -including a set shot goal on the final siren -whileWehrung nabbed three of his own in another strong performance.

The Bulldogs, while deflated after their gallant efforts went unrewarded, were best served byRowe,Rodgers and Sam Winnard.
