LIAM Hoy is expected to be a scoreboard threat for Koroit in 2018.

The versatile premiership player booted three goals in the Saints’ 12.18 (90) to 6.5 (41) win over North Warrnambool Eagles at Victoria Park on Saturday.

“He played half-back (on Good Friday),” Koroit coach Chris McLaren said.

“Damian O’Connor was at half-back today and it was a good move for us and Hoy was more onball and was able to hit the scoreboard.”

Emerging tall Jarrod Korewha (four goals) and Will Couch (three) were also important in the wind-affected win.

McLaren said Korewha was evolving each game.

“He’s six-foot-four or five and has had two stinking days for tall forwards (to start the season) and has kicked four both days,” he saud.

“He’s got so much upside with what he can do.”

North Warrnambool Eagles failed to score into the wind which gave Koroit, which did, a match-winning advantage.
