Golden Square kept premiership hopes alive as it beat Eaglehawk in Saturday night's Bendigo Football League elimination final.
The Hawks made a flying start to the contest at Queen Elizabeth Oval.
Eaglehawk scored the first six goals of the contest on the way to a 27-point lead at quarter-time.
The Square fought back brilliantly to be within seven points at half-time and then took control over the final hour of the contest to win 120 to 95.
Bulldogs' gun recruit Corey Jones, who played 157 matches for North Melbourne, kicked a team-high five goals in a best-on-ground performance.
Eaglehawk's Sean Williams capped a great game on six goals.
Golden Square will face the loser of Sunday's qualifying final between Sandhurst and Gisborne in next weekend's first semi-final.
