The win for Pat’sis a turnaround from the 2-0victoryCity picked up in the season’s earlier meeting between the two teams.

Pat’s were rewarded for being less wasteful in possession than City andthe Saints looked the stronger attacking threat throughout the match.

City’s lackof strike power up front was evident, withCasey Bayliss, Kelsey Willott, Tirah Jarvis andGrace Schumacher all unavailable for the game.

Pat’s coach Chris Conroy said while his opponents were short-staffed his team still produced hockey that would have troubled City at their strongest.

“We held the ball …and helped each other out in possession which was good. We marked tightly as well. We had a job to do out there today and we did it and we’re very happy about that,” he said.

“To their credit they were a bit short today, with players out, which was hard on them. But we did what we came here to do -what we would have done if they had a full-strength side.

“We were patient, hit the ‘D’ well and got a few good shots away.”

The match began in end-to-end fashion, with both sides missing penalty corner opportunities inside the first 10 minutes.

Goal number one arrived 14 minutes in, with Ekert on the end of a 1-2 play from her side’s third penalty corner of the match.

Ella Menzies almost doubled the lead moments later when she got one-on-one with City goalkeeper Maddison Tattersall but her shot was blocked.

One of City’s best opportunities to score in the opening half was off a dangerous Brooke McFadden cross from the right wing, but no-one was on the end to provide the finish.

Pat’s successfully survived a two-minute window down a player thanks to a Jodi Webbgreen card.

Pat’s looked set to take a 1-0 lead into the break but five minutes before half-time arrived Ekert doubled the advantage, this time with a low shot to the left corner of the City goal.

Five minutes into the second half Menzies was once again denied from close range but on the next Pat’s possession theyfound goal number three.

For the third successive penalty corner Ekert was on target, hitting the exact same spot as her previous goal.

City enjoyed the bigger share ofpossession for the following 20 minutes after the third Pat’s goal but were unable to make an impact on the score board.

Conroy said City forced his team to work hard for every penalty corner opportunity.

“Wedid well to get in there and force the short corner. We didn’t get as many as wenormally do, only five, and in the second half we only had the one,” he said.

“It was only 1-0 in the second half, so they tightened up, to their credit.”

The win takes Pat’s up into second spot on the ladder with 36 points, jumping fourclear of Orange Ex-Services who had the bye.

City retain fourth place.
