Despite losing star goalkeeper Georgina Worth to injury at half-time, the Bulldogs were rarely troubled by their Ipswich-based opponents, running out 5-1 winners at Max Haynes Field on Thursday night.

Leah Miles' stunning strike approaching the quarter hour opened accounts for the Bulldogs, before former Matildas star Larissa Crummer doubled the lead before the break.

The visitors found brief hope as they pulled a goal back soon after the restart, but further strikes from Steph Latham, Anna Margraf and Whitney Knight put paid to any hopes of a Pride fightback.

The result underscores the team's status as one of the competition's premier attacking sides with 29 goals to their credit during their six game winning run.

The win keeps the Bulldogs in third position on the competition table, only sitting behind defending Champions Gold Coast United on goal difference.

Archie Kahondo's side travel to 2020 grand finalists Logan Lightning on Saturday night.

By contrast, the Bulldogs men's side continued their run of defeats as they succumbed 4-0 to high-flyers Olympic FC at Goodwin Park on Saturday night.

With several key players absent, the Bulldogs were second best for much of the contest against their cashed-up rivals with former Brisbane Roar A-League star Shannon Brady leading the hosts' returns with a first-half double.

The result extends the Bulldogs' winless run in the league to four matches, with only a single competition point since the start of May to sit tenth in the standings.

David McEvoy's side will seek a return to winning ways when they host Moreton Bay United on Friday night at Max Haynes Field.
