A test with the bat awaits Koroit's division two team this Saturday at Jack Keane Oval.
The Saints will be chasing 180 on day two of their game against Dennington.
The Dogs batted last week, with an even battle between bat and ball.
An experienced Dennington batting line-up made Koroit work for its wickets, but once again the bowling attack answered the call, grabbing all 10 wickets by day's end.
As he has been all season, Bailey Gardiner was exceptional, finishing with 3-34.
He was well supported by fellow multiple wicket-takers Brendan Gherashe (2-9) Seamus Brady (2-33) and Bailen McDonald (2-47).
It was an innings where the Dogs looked like getting away at times but wickets fell regularly enough for the Saints to keep the game in check.
Dennington is second on the ladder and boasts a strong bowling line-up.
Koroit's top six have all had starts in recent weeks so are well positioned to push for the bigger scores that will be needed to chase down victory.
