Jack Chabriere got the Saints� first goal midway through the second with a long bomb from the boundary.
Another couple of goals allowed the Saints to go into half-time with a slight lead.
After the long break, Pickering Brook lifted their intensity once again and kept Bullsbrook to another scoreless term, kicking a few of their own and holding a three-goal buffer into the final change.
A final push from the Saints in the last quarter saw them control much of the play but unfortunately unable to convert in front of goal.
Pickering managed to get a couple of late goals of their own to run away with a handy 31-point win.
Final scores Bullsbrook 3.6 (24) to Pickering Brook 7.13 (55).
