KOROIT coach Kasey Owen hopes to see the Saints eradicate their sluggish starts in the lead-up to finals.
The undefeated Saints were level with Port Fairy at half-time on Saturday and five goals up at the main break, before bursting away in the second half to win 61-36 at Victoria Park.
”We had a bit of a slow start, which is something we really want to nip in the bud now,” Owen said.
“We made sure that we focused on finishing off really strong and made a fair few changes in that game again.”
It was not the changes in position, but rather a lift in intensity that saw the Saints pull away in the second half, according to Owen.
Nell Mitchell shot 43 goals and was ably assisted by Bridget Roache, who shot 18 goals in one of her best performances for the season, sinking her distance shots and allowing Mitchell space under the ring.
Emily Forrest shouldered the bulk of the scoring duties for the Seagulls in Carley Thomas’ absence, dropping in 29 goals.
