A highly-rated newcomer is the next daunting assignment facing Koroit's division two cricketers.
In its first season in the Warrnambool and District Cricket Association, the Northern Raiders are quickly making a name for themselves, with three wins from their opening three games.
Koroit's record may not be as impressive, but the Saints will bring their best form of the season into Saturday's one-day clash at Jack Keane Oval.
On the same ground last Saturday, Koroit grabbed its first win of the season when it triumphed in an entertaining game against Nirranda.
Koroit batted first with opener Jack O'Sullivan producing an impressive knock.
O'Sullivan gave himself time to get in before unleashing some big hits, including three sixes, on his way to 55.
Captain Matthew Webster also hit the ball crisply, making 29 off just 41 balls.
The Saints finished their 45 overs on 8-147.
Nirranda's top order came out with a strong attacking intent and looked dangerous early on.
But the Koroti bowlers stuck to their task and were able to regularly take wickets.
Bailen McDonald continued his good form with 2-17 while Seamus Brady produced a quality eight-over spell that yielded 3-12 and helped bowl the Knights out for 98.
The Koroit division three team will play Brierly Christ Church this Sunday and will be looking for its first win.
Last Sunday the Saints lost to Northern Raiders in a one-day game at Victoria Park.
The Raiders made 201 batting first with the standout for Koroit the performance of youngster Naoh Billings who took 2-0 from his two overs.
Koroit struggled with the bat in reply with Patrick Sinnott top scoring with 40 on the way to a total of 126 from 30 overs.
The Koroit under 15s team will enter the final day of its two-dayer against Brierly Christ Church Blue facing the task of bowling the opposition out. On day one, Koroit batted and made 9-189 from 45 overs. Jett Grayland (47) and Finn O'Sullivan (35) were among the runs.
In the under 17s, Koroit went down to Allansford-Panmure.
The Saints fell short in chasing their opponent's score of 175, with Liam Bell top scoring with 37.
