Golden Square made a perfect start to the BDCA T20 competition with two wins from two games on Sunday.
The Bulldogs took control of its pool thanks to a final over victory against Huntly-North Epsom in the morning and a 10-wicket drubbing of Bendigo United in the afternoon.
Of the four teams that had double-headers in the opening round, the Bulldogs were the only team to go 2-0.
The man of the moment for the Bulldogs was all-rounder Scott Trollope.
Trollope made an unbeaten 65 not out to get Square over the line against the Power.
The Bulldogs needed seven runs off the final over to win the game and Trollope responded with a boundary and a two off the first two balls.
After a dot ball on the third ball of Mitch Whittle's over, Trollope hit the fourth ball for three runs to secure victory.
Earlier, Adam Ward ensured the Power had a competitive score when he made 61 off 44 balls in his side's 9-122 off 20 overs.

In the afternoon game, Trollope made 54 not out as he and the returning Ben Gunn (52 not out) chased down Bendigo United's total of 8-109 with 34 balls to spare.
The result gave Bendigo United a 0-2 record for the day.
The Redbacks lost their morning game to Eaglehawk by just one run.
Marquee player James Ryan (38) lifted the Borough to 115 all out at Harry Trott Oval.
Bendigo United marquee player Kendrick Hatton had the impressive figures of 4-10.
In reply, Bendigo United struggled to put partnerships together.
Opening batsman Tom Batters batted through the innings and hit the final ball of the match for six to leave his side one-run short of a tie.
Batters top-scored with an unbeaten 46.
In the other pool, last season's T20 grand finalists Strathdale-Maristians and Kangaroo Flat made impressive starts.
Strathdale-Maristians spoiled White Hills' hopes of winning its home double-header by defeating the Demons by six wickets in the morning game.
The Demons did well to post 120 after they lost 4-1 at one stage, including the prized wicket of marquee player Brayden Stepien.
The left-hander was run out at the non-strikers end after a Caleb Barras straight drive clipped the hand of bowler James Vlaeminck and went on to the stumps.
Sam Johnston belted 68 off 56 balls as the Suns chased down the target in the 18th over.
The Demons bounced back in the afternoon to defeat Strathfieldsaye by 57 runs.
Mitch Winter-Irving (48 off 37), Stepien (47 off 38) and Ollie Geary (39 off 22) did the damage with the bat as the Demons posted 4-181.
It capped a horror day for Strathfieldsaye after the Jets were thrashed by Kangaroo Flat in the morning match.
The Roo bowlers shared the wickets as they humbled the Jets for just 70.
Ben Birkhead (37 off 22) and Matt Underwood (25 off 13) took just 35 balls to guide the Roos to a 10-wicket win.
The next round of matches will be played on Sunday, December 8.
