The 24-year-old recorded 23 disposals and 9 marks for a return of seven goals, now booting 20 goals from his last 6 appearances in the reserves.
Schache's performance comes just hours ahead of the Bulldogs' top flight bout with Fremantle at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon, a match that will have major implications on their finals chances.
Bruce is yet to boot a goal in his three matches in 2022, with an outing like Scache's on Saturday set to raise some questions at selection for Beveridge's forward line planning.
Should Bruce extend his goalless run against the Dockers, Schache could gain a reprieve after missing Round 18 due to COVID and failing to regain his spot since.
A bag of seven for Josh Schache 👊

McComb made a statement of his own in his return to the reserves, collecting 31 disposals, 10 marks, 5 tackles, 4 clearances and goal against Coburg.
Veteran midfielder Lachie Hunter was also among the Dogs' best, booting three goals and recording 30 possessions.
VFL-listed player Lachie Sullivan continued his strong campaign in leading the Bulldogs' ball winners for the day, collecting 32 touches and 10 clearances.
The win gives the Bulldogs' reserves a major boost in their own hopes of reaching the post-season, now place in 12th on the ladder and just four points shy of the finals cut-off.
Having been the only emergency not to feature in Footscray's win over Coburg, it is expected Toby McLean will be named as the Bulldogs' medical sub to face Fremantle.
