The Saints have used trips to Hamilton, Cobden and Portland to build team morale as they push to grow a two and three record.

Koroit comfortably accounted for Portland on Saturday, notching a 17-goal triumph at Hanlon Park.

Despite a hectic travel schedule, Saints co-coach Carly Pulling said her side relished the test of travel.

“We don’t mind the travel. We generally carpool together and use it to catch up a bit and talk some absolutely rubbish before we get out and focus on court,” Pulling said.

“We’re pretty lucky around here. Hamilton and Portland are the longest and I think we’ve knocked out most of our travel.

“We’ve got Camperdown and Terang left but travelling to Portland is always tough and it was good to beat them over there.”

Koroit’s second half set up the win, slotting 19 and 20 goals in the third and fourth terms to emerge with the triumph. Pulling said the interleague bye was welcomed at Victoria Park.
