GOLDEN Square won a hard-fought battle with South Bendigo by 25 points in the Bendigo Football League's round 11 clash on Saturday at Queen Elizabeth Oval.

Despite a 1-9 record and being last on the ladder, South Bendigo took it right up to the highly-fancied Bulldogs in this contest.

Square led by just two goals at a quarter to go, but kicked away to win 11.22 (88) to 9.9 (63).
