I'm afraid you've been misled by weaker bots into thinking one can just force goal with just the elephant and a single rabbit against a multitude of defending pieces. This is almost never the case. Either get a third, strong enough piece to help in the goal attack or work on withering down the enemy army first before punching through.

There is a forced goal-in-three with
22g Hc5w rb6w Hb5n Rc4w
Note that it was a mistake by the bot to allow this, though. aaaa is right that this isn't as strong a goal attack as you think. Other than the forced goal I don't think your position was ever clearly strong enough that you should feel as if it was won.
