Mordialloc Freeway objectors continue fight Discussion over the freeway continues at Kingston Council, with councillors voting on 25 March to defer debate on the project’s environmental impact for another month. Cr Rosemary West moved a motion that said “that council expresses concern about the failure of the Major Road Projects Authority and its predecessor VicRoads to show reasonable regard for the wishes and interests of the Kingston Council and community in its planning for the Mordialloc Freeway.” One reason for concern listed in the motion included “failing to provide a road overpass for the Ding-

of the proposed closure of Woodlands Drive on the landowners and tenants of Woodlands Industrial Estate” and the “failure to take into account the potential health impact of the freeway on residents of adjoining suburbs, which was not even mentioned in the initial EES document.” Councillors agreed to defer discussion until next month to allow more time to adjust the wording of the motion. Last month, McConnell Dowell/ Decmil Joint Venture was chosen as preferred tenderer for the $375 million project.

State Government has recently committed $25 million for the construction of the Chain of Parks only for the MRPV plans to result in the Chain of Parks Trail coming to a halt at a T-junction at the Dingley Freeway.” Another two reasons for concern given in the motion were “the impact

RESIDENTS against Mordialloc Freeway president Scott Fothergill said he was “amazed” at the quality of the presentations during a public hearing period held to consider the environmental effect of the road project. Mr Fothergill said “the EES Panel ended on 15 March with just over 30 presentations by local residents and community groups in the final two weeks. More than two-thirds of the 112 submissions to the EES were

opposed to the freeway or wanted changes.” “The risks to the matters of national environmental significance, the Ramsar listed Edithvale Wetlands, and the myriad birdlife are too great,” he said. “I am amazed by the efforts and high calibre of presentations. The EES showed the growing opposition to this freeway. The efforts that so many took to prepare and present such moving and well researched opposition to the freeway has been nothing short of spectacular. “The Inquiry and Advisory Committee has a big job ahead of them.”

Charges upgraded after cyclist death

Sailing club gets cash to stay on course

CHARGES against a Parkdale man have been upgraded to culpable driving after a cyclist was knocked down in an alleged hit-and-run at Chelsea, Thursday 28 March. Chelsea triathlete Michelle Ruitenbeek, 50, was riding her bike along the Nepean Highway at 5.40am when she was allegedly struck by a utility driven by the man, 28, who allegedly fled the scene. She was taken to hospital but died two days later. The man was arrested in Broadmeadows hours later while his car was found at Seaford about 8am. He was charged with dangerous driving causing serious injury and failing to render assistance and appeared at an out-ofsession court hearing that day. The charges have now been upgraded and the man has been bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 1 August for a committal hearing.

THE Mordialloc Sailing Club will be helped out of troubled waters after receiving $15,000 from Kingston Council for “emergency repairs.” Council resolved on 25 March to approve the funding boost. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “for many years the club has played an active role in our community by offering a range of sailing programs.” “Council is happy to step in to provide funding for emergency repairs to take place,” she said. The club will contribute over $8000 of their own money towards the repairs. “The emergency repairs will ensure programs including the tackers sail training for 7-12 years olds, schools programs with 100 students from Mordialloc College, and the boat lending service for the general community can continue as planned,” Cr Oxley said.

Parade reopens as piazza works continue MENTONE parade has reopened after completion of a section of works on Kingston Council’s Mentone “renaissance” project. With the reopening of the parade, the section of Florence Street between Mentone Parade and Como Parade West will permanently close. The section of Mentone Parade between Florence Street and Como Parade West will transition to a bus lane southbound.

Full works on the piazza project are projected to be finished by mid-2019. The next phase of works will focus on construction of the new community piazza between Kilbreda College and the “triangle” building. Works on “stage two” of the piazza project were ticked off by council in September 2018 after they voted to award the contract for streetscape works between Como parade West and Florence Stertt to CDN Construc-

tors Pty Ltd for a tendered price of just below $2.9 million. Cr Steve Staikos, who was mayor at the time, said the piazza would “help boost the shopping precinct, create a new community meeting space and showcase the historic Kilbreda Tower.” For more information about the Mentone community piazza project, visit kingston.vic.gov.au/mentonerenaissance

Tour through history A BUS tour will take off in May taking passengers on a journey through the history of the Kingston municipality. The tours departing from the Kingston Arts Centre will stop at six locations of local history. Some of the moments set to be explored include the demolition of The Grange homestead in 1983, and the disappearance of Fred Valentich in 1978. The program was put together with the help of a $65,000 state government grant. The tours will be on 19, 20, 25, and 26 May.

Easter egg hunt on the horizon NEARLY 2,500 chocolate eggs will be up for grabs at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve on 20 April as part of this year’s Easter celebrations. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said this is the fourth egg hunt she has organised, and this year it will be “bigger and better”. “I love running my annual Easter egg hunt. It’s so much fun watching the kids hunt for chocolate eggs, particularly the little ones whose faces just light up when they find a brightly wrapped hid-

den egg,” she said. “I am teaming up with local schools as well as the sporting clubs at Carrum Downs to make this year’s Easter egg hunt the biggest and best. I really encourage local families to join me on Easter Saturday.” An Easter hamper raffle will take place, with proceeds going the Nepean Special School. The free event takes place on 20 April, with registration opening at 10.15am.

Praise for pool safety: Will Bourke is thanked by Inspector Paul Cripps, Superintendent Adrian White, and Senior Sergeant Phil Hulley for his work helping to save a drowning boy at the PARC swimming pool. Picture: Supplied

Young hero awarded for brave save Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A YOUNG boy has been recognised by Victoria Police for his initiative and bravery after he helped alert lifeguards at the PARC swimming pool that a child was drowning. Will Bourke was presented with a citizen commendation on 1 April in front of his schoolmates at Cheltenham Primary. His father Steve said that he was “really proud” of his eight-year-old son. “Will was with my father at PARC last school holidays having a swim with his cousin Henry. They walked

over to the pool and looked in when they saw a young boy who looked to be in trouble under the water,” Mr Bourke said. “Will went over to his grandad and told him what was happening. My dad walked over and knew something was wrong and he alerted the lifeguards. I was absolutely proud of him. Reviewing the CCTV it’s hard to realise the kid was underwater. Will’s only eight so for him to realise something was up and to have the confidence to speak up, we’re really proud and rapt.” Mr Bourke said Will was stoked to be given recognition by the police. “He was given the award in front of his whole school and all his peers.

My wife’s father and my parents were there,” he said. “He felt really good, he was very excited in the lead up. He thought it was exciting to have three big police officers speak so highly of him, but he’s kept pretty modest.” Mr Bourke said that his son’s efforts should remind all parents to “keep an eye on your kids. It’s fortunate Will and Henry were there or it could have been a different situation. This should be a message in water safety.” The young boy was taken to hospital and recovered. Will’s cousin Henry attends St Augustine’s in Frankston.

with Brodie Cowburn

Boat stolen and damaged POLICE are searching for a boat stolen from Parkdale sometime between 4am and 10.30am on 30 March. Police said a boat and trailer were stolen from Ilma Court, and it is suspected it was then moved to the Nepean Highway in Cheltenham where it was further damaged with an angle grinder. The boat was displaying the registration TN 344. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www. crimestoppersvic.com.au and quote incident number 190115807.

Egg hunt POLICE are hunting a man alleged to have assaulted a boy at a speaking event organised by far right senator Fraser Anning in Moorabbin on 16 March. After an incident in which a 17-year-old cracked an egg over the 69-year-old Queensland senator’s head, the 17-year old Hampton boy was dragged to the ground by bystanders. It is alleged a man then approached the boy and kicked him in the body several times. Investigators have released an image of a man (right) they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries. Anyone with information regarding the male depicted is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

What’s in the bag? CHELTENHAM police are investigating an alleged theft from a Southland cosmetic shop on 28 February. Police allege a woman put several items from the shop into a white plastic bag, then left without paying for them at around 8.30pm. Investigators have released images (below) of a woman they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries. Anyone with any information about the theft is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

MAKE THE CALL ASK YOUR ENERGY COMPANY FOR A BETTER DEAL

Driver wanted CARRUM Downs police are “hoping to speak” to a man who was caught driving with a cancelled registration plate. The man pulled into a service station on Frankston-Dandenong Road at around 10.45am on 27 March in a white Holden Commodore, registration OUG134. Police allege they approached the man, but he ran back to his car and accelerated heavily, causing the car to “fishtail” and narrowly miss police members. Police have released an image (below) of a man who they believe “may be able to assist with their inquiries.”

Dangerous rider arrest A MOTORCYCLIST was allegedly speeding at 225kph on Peninsula Link before his rear tyre blew out and he was arrested, 4.30pm, Sunday 31 March. Police said the 30-year-old Cranbourne man was lucky to escape death during the display of dangerous riding at Moorooduc. Witnesses reported seeing several motorcyclists riding erratically at Rosebud, Safety Beach and on the Monash Freeway at Glen Waverley and Blackburn at the same time. Police said the man’s unregistered green Kawasaki had false plates. It was only after the tyre blew out that they were able to catch up and charge him with conduct endangering life, failing to stop on direction, driving at a dangerous speed, riding while disqualified and numerous other traffic offences.

Crewther accused of jumping gun on grants Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au DUNKLEY MP Chris Crewther has backtracked after he and environment minister Melissa Price announced grants to four community groups under a program that has not yet opened. Mr Crewther said on 17 March that he and Ms Price visited four groups in the Dunkley electorate to “announce the first grants of the federal government’s communities environment program”. During Senate esti-

mates on 4 April, officials from the Department of the Environment and Energy confirmed applications for that program were not open and funding for it had not been appropriated. Mr Crewther played down the original announcement last week, telling The Times “if I am re-elected as the member for Dunkley, these are some of the projects I identified that I would want to nominate under the communities environment program once it opens.” After a redistribution of the Dunkley electorate, Mr Crewther would

need a swing towards the Liberal Party on past voting figures to keep his seat. Mr Crewther visited Animalia Wildlife Shelter in Frankston on 17 March to “announce” a $10,000 grant under the “community environments program”. A further $7500 was promised to Friends of Langwarrin Outdoors and Waterways, as well as $10,000 to Downs Estate and $20,000 for the South Eastern Centre for Sustainability. A media release from Mr Crewther said that “this funding is a part of $22

million in 2019-20 to deliver a wide range of on ground projects that conserve, protect and sustainably manage our environment”. However Kylie Jonasson, from the Department of the Environment and Energy, confirmed during Senate estimates that the department had not met with any of the groups listed in Mr Crewther’s original announcement. “In this case, we’ve not awarded any funding to these projects,” Ms Jonasson said. “The guidelines are yet to be writ-

ten and the funds are yet to be appropriated.” Department of the Environment and Energy official Steve Costello said during Senate estimates that “there is no successful grant under that program because the money is not appropriated.” He said “the program is not open for applications. It will open in the next financial year subject to budget appropriations.” Labor senator Kristina Keneally asked if it was possible that “any of these grants be awarded early”. Mr Costello said that was not possible.

South-east football team kicking on DESPITE missing out on an A-League license late last year, the push for a professional football side based in Victoria’s south-east has gone into extra time. Members of the “Team 11” bid confirmed last week that they would continue fighting for a future spot in the ALeague despite Football Federation Australia’s decision in December 2018 to deny them a license. A statement from Team 11 said that it “wishes to confirm its intention to keep alive its ambition of delivering a professional men’s and women’s football club to the south-east of Victoria.” “All involved with the Team 11 bid were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and disappointment from members of the southeast Victorian community in the wake of Football Federation Australia’s decision to award A-League licences elsewhere in December,” the statement said. “This support, coupled with the bid’s unwavering belief that this booming, multicultural population of more than 1.7 million is capable of growing what could become Australia’s biggest football club, was crucial in convincing all involved to keep the bid going.” The bid centred around the construction of a rectangular stadium on council-owned land in Dandenong. The construction of that facility depended on a state government investment of over $100 million. The statement put out by Team 11 outlined that their shareholders would continue to support of the venture, that Dandenong Council would continue advocating for the construction of a stadium in the municipality, and that Casey Council would continue planning for football facilities at Casey Fields. Construction of football facilities at the Casey Fields sports precinct in Cranbourne are already underway. In late 2018, the FFA made the decision to overlook Team 11 in their A-League expansion process, instead choosing a team to be based out of Tarneit. Brodie Cowburn

Roll up to the greatest show on earth DROMANA College is putting on the Greatest Show on Earth – quite literally! The hit musical ‘Barnum’, which tells the story of infamous circus and museum owner PT Barnum, will be coming to the Frankston Arts Centre in May with iconic tunes such as ‘Come Follow the Band’ and ‘Join the Circus’. Following the success of the college’s production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in 2017, the Dromana College production team and Performing Arts teachers (Michelle Day, Jacqui Rodden and Sarah Cossey) have come together yet again to provide the students at Dromana College with an exciting opportunity to be involved in another spectacular theatrical experience. Throughout 2018, the College began its first Music Theatre Enhancement Program which provided students with the opportunity to refine their stagecraft and performance skills. The focus of the program was to develop students’ vocal, dance and acting abilities as they learnt a variety of musical numbers as an ensemble. Students worked with industry professionals to develop their own performance abilities, and performed in a variety of settings. Due to the success of the Music Theatre Enhancement Program, the production team saw a professional level audition season. There were over 100 applicants from all year levels and in all styles including singing, dancing, acting and circus. They also saw an influx of students wanting to be involved in other capacities including students playing in the orchestra, design, media and backstage. These students have been working hard since then making props and set pieces for the show, designing artwork and recording the rehearsal process. Rehearsals for ‘Barnum’ began at the end of 2018 with the cast and crew attending a 3-day

intensive camp on Phillip Island where they began staging one of the shows biggest numbers and started learning some basic circus skills. Since the return of the school year, rehearsals have increased, seeing the inclusion of some of the new Year 7 students. Most recently, the production has welcomed the assistance of Bronwyn Falagan from Soul Circus to choreograph and stage the circus elements of the show. Audiences can expect to see jugglers, acrobatics, contortionists and more. ‘Barnum: The Greatest Show on Earth’ will be performed at the Frankston Arts Centre, May 10th at 7pm and May 11th at 1pm and 7pm. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from the Frankston Arts Centre website. https:// artscentre.frankston.vic.gov.au/Home

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Nasty motor car accident in Frankston Compiled by Cameron McCullough A PARTY from Frankston House had an unpleasant experience whilst out motoring one day last week. In endeavoring to pass a vehicle, which claimed a monopoly of the road, the motor car was overturned. The occupants were all more or less injured, and the driver (Mr Goulding) was severely cut with the glass from the broken wind screen. The members of the party consisted of Mrs Fossitt, of Melbourne, and her son, Private Fossitt, (who has just returned from active service in France), Miss Hay, Miss Box Miss Matters, and Miss Doughty. Fortunately Mrs Fossitt and Miss Doughty were not in the car at the time of the accident. The members of the party speak in the highest terms of praise of the coolness and skill displayed by Mr Goulding in handling a very difficult position. Miss Hay, we are sorry to learn has not quite recovered from the effects of the accident. *** PRESBYTERIAN Church – Owing to illness the Rev. N. Webster, of Mornington, will not be able to conduct services at Frankston next Sunday morning as arranged. The Sacrament of the Lords Supper will be postponed till a future date. *** SOMERVILLE Fruitgrowers Association. The usual monthly meeting of the above association will be held on Monday evening next when the business to be brought forward is the coolstores extension (for which 4000

shares have already been applied for), cooperative cannery, and general. *** IN consequence of the Easter holidays the “Standard” next week will be published on Thursday evening. Advertisers and contributors will please note that all communications connected with that issue must reach this office not later than Thursday, 17th inst. at noon. *** THE idea of severing the south riding from the Dandenong Shire has again been brought to the front. After having laid dormant for a considerable time, it was brought up some time back, freely discussed and approved of by the Chelsea Progress Association but without apparent effect, until the present week when it became evident that the local councillors had decided to join the movement. Some four years ago as the result of similar disscussions at the Foreshore Progress Associations, a conference had been formed with Mr H. J. Richardson as secretary, to go into the question with a view of taking steps to sever and create a separate bayside shire. After a great deal of work had been done it had been found towards the end of 1916 that the formation of a new shire was not possible by reason of insufficient revenue. When the petition was presented the south riding had a valuation of £32,467, with a revenue from rates £2,840. At that time there were 1058 ratepayers on the south riding roll. The conference found then that the com-

bined revenue of what was known as the garbage area with the district of Seaford was to small to successfully finance a borough. Since the above statistics were published, there has been a marked increase in each of the items mentioned. *** THE Frankston Football Club will play their initial match for the season this afternoon in the local park, when they will try conclusions with a team picked from the Mornington club. All local players are requested to meet in the park at 2 o’clock sharp for the purpose of making a final selection. *** ENTERTAINMENT Tax: The Federal Commissioner of Taxation (Mr R.

sition, was able to speak with authority and a first hand knowledge of facts when he asked the Council to pass for payment the domestic accounts connected with the hospital. These totalled a sum of £17 11s 10d and represented the cost of provisioning 6 people for upwards of 5 weeks besides paying the cook and other incidentals. Cr Mason said the Council and the people generally were greatly indebted to Nurse Gallus for the unselfish way in which she threw herself into the work of managing the hospital. Patients had received the best of treatment and at the same time a wise economy had been practiced. He moved that an honorarum of £10 be voted by the Council to Nurse Gallus. This was seconded by Cr Oates and carried unanimously. The secretary was also directed to write thanking Nurse Gallus for the invaluable services rendered by her; also to send letters of thanks to the many other helpers. *** MR Colin McKenzie has been very ill during the past week, his condition causing his friends very grave anxiety. *** LANCE-Sergeant R.

Sharks win clash of the titans DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have taken their first steps towards retribution for last year’s devastating grand final loss, as they defeated the Stonecats to kick start their 2019 campaign. Frankston YCW looked electrifying in the first quarter, as they shocked Sorrento with a seven goals to one start. Staring at a 40 point deficit in the face, the Sharks had a mountain to climb to get back into the contest. The Sharks chipped away and by three quarter time they held an 11 point lead. The clash between the two MPNFL heavyweights was a tough one, but in the end Sorrento ran out winners 13.18 (96) to 17.7 (109). Leigh Poholke kicked four majors while Luke Tapscott chipped in with three. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Pines got their premiership defence started in impressive fashion, as they fought off Mt Eliza. The Redlegs were the more impressive side early and went into quarter time with the lead, but the Pythons quickly bit back. Mt Eliza put up a tough fight, and were three points up heading into the final term. In the end Pines were just too good, as they claimed victory 10/8 (68) to 12.12 (84). Guy Hendry scored four goals for the winning outfit.

Dromana’s first hit out in the first division went brilliantly, as they claimed all four points against Rosebud away from home. Rosebud were on top early with a first quarter where they had eight scoring shots to three. Rosebud could only convert one goal from that though, and went in level at the first break. Dromana made Rosebud pay for their inaccuracy, and in the final term ran away with it to secure their first top flight win 5.11 (41) to 11.8 (74). At Greg Beck Oval, Jarrad Grant ran rampant to help his Frankston Bombers side claim a narrow victory over Bonbeach. Grant, a former AFL level player with the Western Bulldogs and Gold Coast, showed the form that made him a top level player with a best on ground performance. The contest was tight all day long, with less than two goals separating the sides at every break. Heading into the final term down by 10 points, the Bombers kept their chins up and ended up 15.11 (101) to 15.4 (94) winners. Inaccuracy plagued EdithvaleAspendale in their matchup against Mornington, but they still did enough to secure the win. Edi-Asp led the Bulldogs all day, and eventually secured the win in front of their home crowd 12.25 (97) to 7.10 (52).

New Bull Holt takes game by the horns DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A ONE point thriller between Somerville and Seaford was the highlight of the weekend as MPNFL football returned for round one. After dropping down from the first division last year, Seaford were looking to make amends and stamp their influence on the league early. They kicked seven goals in the first term and held a comfortable 31 point lead at the main break. Somerville chipped the Tigers back a bit before the final term, with the margin standing at 13 at three-quarter time. Despite a nine goals to four second half, Seaford were able to hold on by the skin of their teeth to claim victory in their opening game for the year. When the final siren sounded the Tigers were ahead by a whisker. They defeated Somerville 14.11 (95) to 14.12 (96). At Ballam Park, Red Hill travelled to take on Karingal. The Hillmen were defeated in last year’s grand final, and with a young and exciting list will be looking to do one better in 2019. Karingal showed that they were not to be taken lightly, and fans were treated to Marc Holt. The new signee backed up a big debut last week by scoring a bag of seven to help the Bulls to victory. The full forward was unstoppable, proving himself to be a star after crossing into the MPNFL from Cranbourne. Karingal led at every break, and although Red Hill fought hard they couldn’t quite get their noses ahead. The Bulls took the game by the horns and won 11.7 (73) to 9.10 (64).

Langwarrin enjoyed a good day at home against Chelsea, as they ran out 27 point winners. The contest was tight all day, with Chelsea going into the first break in front. Langwarrin got back ahead, but the margin stood at less than two goals going into the last term. Langwarrin proved to have the legs after a big pre season, as they kicked away and scored a 13.9 (87) to 8.12 (60) win. Crib Point were looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2018 with a new coach at the helm. They took on Rye at home to start off their year. Rye got off to a hot start but kicked 1.9 in the first term to keep Crib Point in the game. The Magpies fought back but Rye were able to get out to a comfortable enough lead to secure victory. The Demons won 10.11 (71) to 16.17 (113). At Thomas Barclay Oval, Hastings got their season started over Tyabb. Hastings were without their star recruit Brendan Fevola, but still had little trouble seeing off the Yabbies. The Blues showed their intent by kicking five straight in the first term. The final score read Hasting 12.8 (80) to Tyabb 5.9 (39). Michael Theodoridis showed he will once again be a force to be reckoned with up forward in 2019, as he kicked six major to help his Devon Meadows side to a big win over Pearcedale. Pearcedale didn’t get close all day, and eventually succumbed to a 45 point loss 10.10 (70) to 18.7 (115).

Determination: Hastings, on their own turf, made short work of Tyabb to get their 2019 campaign off to a solid start. Picture: Andrew Hurst Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 10 April 2019

It’s mayhem at Mornington SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON head coach Adam Jamieson expects Casey Comets midfielder Brodie Paterson to receive a lengthy ban after a violent contest at Dallas Brooks Park on Friday night. Comets came from behind to win this State 1 battle 2-1 and send the home side to a third consecutive defeat which casts major doubt over its stated ambition of winning promotion to the 2020 NPL. But it was the controversial finish to this clash which stole the limelight. The club video appears to show substitute Paterson pushing opponent Sam Catherine to the ground late in the match then falling on top of his opponent and striking him with a righthanded punch. Channel Nine used the footage in a national news broadcast on Saturday. When the dust settled from the ensuing melee referee Bill Kostadakopoulos sent off Paterson and Mornington defender Josh Valadon for violent conduct. When asked if Paterson could receive a long suspension Jamieson’s response was blunt. “Yes. That sort of behaviour isn’t acceptable in our society let alone a football field.” Scans on Saturday morning cleared Catherine of any facial or neck damage but doubts remained as to whether or not his sight had been affected by the incident. Mornington players have certainly been in the wars early in the season. There are claims that English import Andre Bennett was racially vilified during the club’s round one clash with Malvern City. Football Victoria was made aware of an alleged racist slur directed at Bennett during the match after receiving complaints from two spectators. One of the spectators is believed to be a Football Victoria employee and the other is Bennett’s partner. Mornington and Malvern have discussed the issue and Mornington has been told that veteran striker and Malvern captain Arthur Papadopoulos has been suspended by his club for eight consecutive matches plus the reverse fixture against Mornington later in the season. Football Victoria continues to investigate the matter. Friday’s 2-1 loss to Comets and the Catherine incident cast a sombre mood over Dallas Brooks Park. Things were so much different when Mornington took a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute thanks to a low driven corner

from Craig Smart and a superb glancing header by Catherine. This was the Mornington of old and Comets keeper Faraz Zenoozi had the woodwork to thank when a superb curling effort from new Mornington signing Kane Bentley in the 33rd minute smacked off the bar and was cleared. But Comets worked their way back into the contest and three minutes from the interval a long ball to the far post was headed back by Dejan Radojicic and Vojislav Milojevic hammered home a low shot to make it 1-1. Comets had chances to hit the front in the second half but they had to wait until the 78th minute to gain reward for their efforts. Mornington’s defence failed to clear following a long throw-in on the left and Deakan Napier slammed the ball home from close range in what was to be the decisive moment of the match. The home team huffed and puffed but didn’t put Zanoozi under much pressure and at the other end of the pitch Mornington’s lack of pace remained a major talking point. Deep into injury time Mornington substitute Amir Osmancevic’s spectacular bicycle kick was headed clear by the impressive Rogan McGeorge and Comets ran out a deserved victor. In NPL2 news Langwarrin was in sparkling form in the first half against Goulburn Valley Suns with goals from Wayne Wallace and Roddy Covarrubias and although the home side had a better second half a late Damir Stoilovic strike gave Langy an impressive 3-0 victory in Shepparton on Saturday evening. Scott Miller’s side is now just one point behind league leader Eastern Lions. On the down side Wallace was red carded in the 84th minute while Goulburn’s Matt Lelliott was dismissed in the 63rd minute. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers slumped to a 6-2 defeat away to Mon-

Sudoku and crossword solutions

bulk Rangers on Friday night. Strikers were down 3-0 at half-time but scored twice in the second half through Antun Vulic and Adam Crabb in what was a dismal display by the local club. In State 3 news both Skye United and Frankston Pines lost 2-1 in away fixtures last weekend against Ashburton United and Whitehorse United respectively. Skye goalkeeper Jonathan Crook made a great point-blank save to keep Ashburton at bay just before half-time and Skye hit the front early in the second half thanks to Mikey Turner after good lead-up play from debutant Nic Miliaresis. Skye peppered the home team’s goal for the next 20 minutes but a superb strike from outside the area by Arsenos Zervides made it 1-1 in the 68th minute. In the 75th minute Ashburton headed to the spot after Saj Sugrim handled inside the area and Thomas Falconer made no mistake to give the hosts all three points. Pines created enough chances to win comfortably hitting the bar four times and the post twice. Pines went behind in the 38th minute after an excellent finish by Daniel Eksiyan. The equaliser came in the 80th minute from a rehearsed set piece when a Serge Yanez corner was headed home by CJ Hodgson. Three minutes later a disputed penalty decision allowed Liam Coulter to convert from the spot to round off the scoreline. In State 4 news things went from bad to worse for Baxter after a humiliating 12-0 capitulation at the hands of ladder leader Rowville Eagles at Park Ridge Reserve last weekend. Baxter senior coach George Hughes and assistant Rob Mathieson endured a difficult time during the off-season trying to bolster their squad but they

recently completed the signings of defender Matt McCormack (ex-Comets and Morwell), attacking midfielder Nat Daher (from Dingley Stars) and winger Aaryn Rix (Frankston Pines). This weekend Baxter is at home to fellow struggler Dingley Stars in a must-win encounter. Stuart McKenzie and Nathan Yole are available and are expected to play. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford’s 2-1 away win over Dingley Stars last weekend was mired in controversy. Two Pines recruits combined to open the scoring for Seaford in the 8th minute. Naseer Mohammad played a welltimed ball into the path of Mitch Lander who hit it first time across Dingley keeper Yağız Atok Ersoy for the opener. In the 16th minute Conor Mcfall’s attempted cross to the far post eluded everyone and ended up in the back of the net to give the visitors a two-goal cushion. A minute before the break a handling error from Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi gifted a goal to Dingley when he failed to collect a high ball and was credited with an own goal. Dingley’s Stephen Nygen was walking a tightrope for much of this contest and referee Neil Byrne had no option but to book him in the 59th minute. Shortly after Seaford star Dylan Waugh was involved in a clash of heads and was still protesting his innocence when shown a red card for violent conduct. Nygen then received a straight red for abusive language. Dingley had a chance to snatch a point deep into injury time after Madafferi handled outside the area but redeemed himself by saving the resultant free-kick. In State 5 news Rosebud continued its fine start to the season with a 3-2 home win over Casey Panthers on Saturday. Two wins and a draw have taken the league newcomer to third on the ladder and last weekend’s success was thanks to goals from Chris Parry (2) and Billy Gowans. The news wasn’t as positive for Somerville Eagles as it lost 2-1 at home to Old Mentonians last weekend. The visitors deserved their success as Somerville struggled to create chances and was forced to play star striker Dave Greening despite being nowhere near peak fitness. Greening played due to the absence of Mark Pagliarulo who was holidaying with his family on the Gold Coast and his presence up front was sorely missed.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 10 April 2019

Cameron Parsons took over in goal as usual number one Francis Beck was at a coaching course. Somerville’s best chance fell to Greening in the 31st minute after he latched onto a poor back pass. He looked certain to score after rounding Old Mentonians keeper Mustafa Zahir but couldn’t strike the ball firmly enough allowing a defender to recover and clear. Five minutes later Old Mentonians took the lead. The ball was played into the box after a quick break down the right and Somerville failed to clear enabling Tyler Pollard to lay the ball into the path of Max Vulcan who slid in and struck a left-foot drive past Parsons from close range. Parsons was by far the busier of the two keepers. Somerville somehow hit back in the 53rd minute when Damien Garcia got a touch in a packed penalty area and claimed the equaliser. But an excellent run from Cameron Ironside in the 60th minute was rewarded when he neatly lobbed the ball over the advancing Parsons and into the unguarded goal for the winner.

Santa gives all: Anthony Freedman’s Santa Ana Lane wins the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes at Randwick. Picture: Supplied

Santa, the gift that keeps on giving By Ben Triandafillou MOUNT ELIZA-based racehorse trainer Anthony Freedman came to the fore in yet another Australian Group 1 sprint on Saturday 6 April. Ridden patiently by Mark Zahra, Freedman’s star sprinter Santa Ana Lane pounced down the straight to overrun his rivals in the $2.5 milllion T. J. Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick to claim his fifth Group 1 race.

Santa, as he’s affectionately known, defeated a star-studded field of sprinters by 3.5 lengths and further enhanced his profile as one of Australia’s best sprinters. Freedman said he has felt that the six-year-old gelding has been a topquality animal for some time. “I knew he was really good,” Freedman said. “I was worried about the track, but I knew that the horse was as good as I have had him and when he

is like that, he can do that so it’s exciting going forward.” Jockey, Mark Zahra, described Santa Ana Lane’s run as an ‘amazing victory’. “He was a bit cranky in the gates,” said Zahra, who was replacing injured regular rider Ben Melham. “He was a bit slow away but I got him on the back of Champagne Cuddles. Just down the side I gave him a click to track up and just had to wait

and wait and I got around the bend. I had them covered 300 metres out.” The victory brought up Freedman’s 10th Group 1 from 37 starters since 2017. Freedman said the stable was now considering taking Santa Ana Lane to Hong Kong for the Chairman’s Sprint Prize (1200m) at Sha Tin on 28 April with Royal Ascot during June also a long-term option. “We will obviously give Hong Kong

serious thought and if things are still good, we will head on to Europe,” he said. “He’s clearly gone to a huge level now. I’ve sort of worked him out. I know how to train him and that is the key with horses, the trainer works out how to train them and you get the best out of them. “Keep him fresh, big gaps between runs and he just keeps stepping up to the mark.”
