The Magpies flew into Wade Street on Saturday afternoon and added another win to the board with a two-point victory over the Bulldogs.
Maryborough was able to defeat the hosts 46-44 in a tight game, where Golden Square came close to victory after a late charge.
At the end of both the first and second quarters, Magpies held a seven-goal lead, with the Bulldogs bringing it down to only five at the end of the third quarter.
Determined not to be upstaged by the visitors and eager to notch its first win of the season, Bulldogs made a charge at the Magpies but fell short by two points at the end of the fourth quarter.
"We broke away in the first quarter, so I was a little disappointed we didn't hold our lead," Maryborough coach Debbie Symes said.
"The team does all the hardwork, defenders turn the ball over and we get a good lead - but then we relax a little, we need to focus on keeping the momentum for a full four quarters.
"But it was a good outcome - it was well contested, shot well and defended well by both sides.
"It was fairly even across the match, apart from the first quarter, we should've held that off."
Despite the loss, there was a milestone to celebrate with Golden Square's Kendyl Hopley coaching her 150th game.
The only other person in history to reach the milestone at Golden Square was Symes, now the coach of the Magpies.
