A 90th minute goal from Matt Gordon secured the 3-3 result at Max Haynes Field on Saturday night as the Bulldogs rallied after letting slip a hard-fought half-time lead.

Leading goal scorer Kado Aoci fired home a double in the opening half hour to lay the platform for the David McEvoy's side, with the African-born striker now boasting six goals from six league appearances this season.

The Lightning levelled terms after the hour when Adam Edgar added to Feliboulee Sheriff's first-half goal, and seemed destined for an upset win when Jed Brown fired the visitors ahead with 20 minutes remaining.

But, riding their home support, the Bulldogs finished strongly as Gordon netted his maiden senior NPL goal to claim another valuable competition point to firm the side's hold on seventh position on the table.

The men's result capped off a big night for the Bulldogs home supporters after the women's team wrapped up a comfortable 4-1 win over Queensland Academy of Sport in the curtain raiser.

Defender Natasha Wheeler's first half brace gave the Bulldogs the lead at half-time, despite Tamar Levin pulling a goal back for the visitors midway through the half.

The Bulldogs' Matildas stars then proved the difference in the second stanza, as Larissa Crummer and Amy Chapman netted in the final quarter hour to seal a third straight win for Archie Kahondo's side.

The win moves the team to a season-high fifth on the competition table ahead of next week's tricky away clash with in-form Souths United.

The Men are also away next weekend when they tackle local rivals Redlands United in the bayside derby on Friday night.
