A BRAVE Bulldogs challenge ran out of puff in the final term as Collingwood made it three consecutive wins with a 15.8 (98) to 11.11 (77) victory on Friday night.

The Dogs led by as many as 17 points halfway through the second quarter but ended up going into the main break three points behind after the Magpies booted three straight to end the half.

Brendan McCartney's men returned from the sheds with the same vigour they showed from the opening bounce to eventually trail by only one point at the last change.

But the Dogs ran out of legs in the final term and were guilty of bad mistakes, managing to kick just 1.1 to the Magpies' 4.3 as a chance of a shock upset slipped through their grasp.

"It's slowly, slowly coming together," Magpies star Scott Pendlebury told Grandstand.
