IF St Pat's want to come away with the points from this Saturday's women's Premier League Hockey clash against Orange CYMS then they know they have to avoid the hockey they produced in the second half of last week's draw against Parkes.
That was the only time the Saints' structure fell away during their opening two rounds of the season, according to coach Ben Weal, and Pat's want to get it back in shape against a CYMS team still chasing their first win.
"Pete Shea will have a pretty well organised side. Even though they've lost a couple of players this year they should still play a good structure because they're being coached by him," Weal said.
"They'll be searching for their first win and we don't want to be that team. We'll need to have a good structure ourselves."
That structure fell away in the 1-all result against Parkes at home.
The Saints rushed on a couple of occasions and made things more difficult for themselves in defence by falling away from their plan.
"The first game we played a great structure but we were probably allowed to because the team was quite weak. We lost it a bit in the second half last week when we were put under more pressure by Parkes," Weal said.
"They were quite fast and they changed their structure in the midfield. We didn't adapt to that very well.
"We're still running with what the girls were familiar with last season because it's too short of a season to make bulk changes. If it were longer I'd be more happy to experiment with a few things.
"It's still very early days. Our touch hasn't been that great. It's just that in the first game we weren't punished for that. Parkes had the faster girls who were able to hurt us a bit more."
Esther Hotham is out for the clash and Kristy Ekert is looking like missing the remainder of the season.
The match starts at 1.30pm.
