Off-leash beach ‘outrageous’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A BACKLASH against a proposed 24/7 off-leash zone for dogs at Edithvale beach has seen residents gather on the foreshore to show opposition

to the proposal. Some dog owners also attended the demonstration. Demonstration organiser Kevin Harrison said many residents and beachgoers are aghast at a Kingston Council suggestion to allow dogs to run off-leash at all times of the day and night on a 300-metre stretch of Edithvale beach between

Somme Lane and Bristol Avenue. He said the demonstration held on Saturday (7 July) was well attended despite poor weather on the day. “We cannot for the life of us fathom why a large section of Melbourne’s most prized and pristine beaches on Edithvale foreshore with no specific boundaries

has been proposed by council as a suitable location for a 24/7 dogs off-leash beach,” Mr Harrison said. “This is an outrageous proposal which will effectively deny the public enjoyment of nearly a quarter of one of Melbourne’s most popular and populated beaches — a beach that is enjoyed every

summer by thousands of people of all ages from all walks of life, including families.” Councillors at council’s May public council meeting backed a plan to allow canines to walk and run off-leash in the area and sought community feedback on the proposal. Continued page 3

Survey says council is ‘above average’

United front: Protesters show opposition to a proposal that would see dogs roam free on part of Edithvale beach. Picture: Gary Sissons

Protest against off-leash beach Continued from page 1 In a report lodged at the May meeting, council officers recommended other “quieter” areas in Chelsea and Carrum as being more appropriate for a permanent dog off-leash zone. “Council will consider all community submissions and feedback at the end of the public consultation period,” Council planning and development

general manager Jonathan Guttmann said in the wake of the weekend demonstration at Edithvale beach. Councillors at the May meeting said they would listen to community feedback before any final decision on an off-leash area. “It is also worth noting that many people opposing this proposal are dog owners who use the Edithvale fore-

shore regularly to exercise their dogs and feel that the current dog rules are fair and reasonable for all,” Mr Harrison said. Council is taking public feedback on the proposed Edithvale 24-hour dog off-lead area until Tuesday 31 July at yourkingstonyoursay.com.au/edithvaleofflead online or by calling 1300 653 356.

AN annual survey of ratepayers has rated Kingston Council’s performance as “above average” compared to other councils across Victoria. Council says 400 randomly selected households throughout the Kingston municipality were contacted by JWS Research in February and March to gauge views on key areas including waste management, arts centres, libraries and recreational facilities. The mayor Cr Steve Staikos said council attained an overall performance score of 64, above the statewide average of 59. Two-thirds of those surveyed believe council “is heading in the right direction”, with residents aged 18 to 34-years-old the most satisfied with council’s performance, and residents in South Ward giving council the highest rating for customer service. “We always want to learn which areas we can improve on and it’s vital that we hear from our community to ensure we can make changes where necessary,” Cr Staikos said. Council’s lowest three performance service areas were for planning and building permits, planning for population growth and decisions made in the interest of the community. “Community concerns over planning in local neighbourhoods have been felt across Melbourne for a

Mayor Steve Staikos

number of years and illustrate the challenges local councils face in balancing demand for housing supply in a time of population growth with community expectations,” Cr Staikos said. “While many people would like to see less development, councils can only assess planning applications against Victorian Planning laws. “Kingston Council is working to strengthen protection of our local suburbs and we’re currently putting together a Neighbourhood Character Strategy, Housing Strategy and Car Parking Strategy to tackle these issues head-on.”

Internet scammers target the unwary

Police patrol

SCAMMERS falsely claiming to be NBN Co representatives have been asking for personal information and financial details under the pretence of switching internet services to the national broadband network. NBN Co says scammers have been taking advantage of customers, including retirement village residents. “It is important to be aware that NBN Co will never make unsolicited calls or door knock to sell broadband services,” NBN Co chief security officer Darren Kane said. “NBN Co may make calls to individuals registered on our medical alarm or fire and lift registers but will never request payment or bank account details during these calls.” Mr Kane said NBN Co staff will also never ask for payment for medical alarms. “NBN Co is the company building and operating Australia’s wholesale broadband network, and as a wholesale-only company, we do not sell broadband packages directly to consumers. “There are times when NBN Co may contact you directly as part of the network rollout, but never to request payment for services over the NBN network.” Mr Kane says people should not share bank or personal details with any unsolicited caller or door knocker claiming to be from NBN Co and trying to sell an internet service. Anyone who believes they have been the victim of such a scam

Causing a stink

Police executed a search warrant at a 32-year-old man’s Aspendale home shortly before 8am. Investigators allegedly found and seized two firearms, ammunition, a taser, extendable baton, nunchucks, cash, cocaine, cannabis and a white powder believed to be methylamphetamine. One of the firearms is alleged to have been stolen during a burglary at a rural property at Sunbury in October 2014.

POLICE, firefighters and ambulance paramedics rushed to the rear of the main Chelsea shopping strip last Tuesday (3 July) amid reports of “a toxic smell”. Patterson River CFA fire crews found a person apparently “suffering from inhalation of an unknown chemical”. Firefighters did not find any evidence of chemicals at the scene.

Furniture thief nabbed

AN unsanctioned removalist who stole furniture from two homes for sale in Seaford over the past two months (“‘Everything’ goes”, The News 27/6/18) has been arrested by police. Frankston Detective Senior Constable Belinda Rampal said the furniture was recovered and a 38-year-old Seaford man will face court in September charged with burglaries and theft. The man fitted out his own residence with more than $20,000 worth of stolen furniture including two beds, a four-seater couch, tables, linen, cushions, donnas, plants and a dishwasher. He tied large items to the roof of a Holden Commodore and made several repeat visits to homes for sale in Kirkwood Avenue and Raymond Road between April and 19 June to allegedly steal the furniture. “The owners were very happy to get their furniture back,” Detective Senior Constable Rampal said. When police searched the man’s property they also found a small hydroponic kit used to grow cannabis so the Seaford man will also face a charge of cultivating cannabis when he fronts court.

History in the frame for art Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A MOVE from premises in Mentone to new digs in early 2016 was the impetus for an art group to paint a picture of its own history in book form. Mentone Mordialloc Art Group member Pamela Cooper compiled and edited the Art In Mentone book after deciding to dig through files stored in a cabinet at the group’s former Old Granary Lane base when it was scheduled for demolition ahead of a move to the Mentone Activity Hub in Venice Street. The Mordialloc resident uncovered a treasure trove of documentation dating back to the art group’s formation in 1956 that forms the basis of the glossy Art In Mentone. “I had a bit of a peek and saw there were some really interesting things in there and so wanted to keep a permanent record of it,” Ms Cooper said. “Generally I have an appreciation of things that have happened in the past and I think it’s easy for us to forget all of that and to lose it. And I think it’s really quite sad because history is what builds and creates what we are today.” The colourful book is a vivid illustration of changing people and

places in the Mentone area over the past seven decades. It took about three years in Ms Cooper’s spare time to research and compile the book published last year for the first time. Correspondence between the group, council and schools is preserved in its pages to show how the group flourished throughout the years. “I realised as I went through it I was actually building a little part of the history of art in Australia,” Ms Cooper said. “I had spine-chilling moments where I was able to connect a famous name in Australian art to our art group.” Some of the Mentone Mordialloc Art Group’s early members, such as Gunnar Neeme and David Taylor, became internationally renowned. “It’s a small piece of a big picture,” Ms Cooper said. n Art In Mentone - A Local Tradition is available to buy at Mentone news agency and from the Mentone Mordialloc Art Group, 29 Venice Street, Mentone by calling 9584

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Somerville resident farewelled

Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE news of Mrs George Gomm’s death, which took place at her residence last Sunday, was received with deep regret by a large circle of friends. Mrs Gomm was an old resident of Somerville and had been in failing health for some time. She was a valued worker of the local branch of the Lady Mayoress’ Patriotic League. She leaves a husband and two daughters to mourn her loss and our sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. The funeral took place at the Mornington Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. Rev Rymer conducted the burial service. *** THE concert held in Frankston on Saturday evening last, in aid of the funds of the Langwarrin Military Training Camp, was undoubtedly one of the best concerts given in Frankston. The audience was a large one, and during the evening Mr Jolly announced that he had personally sold 102 tickets in Melbourne, which were not represented in the hall. The programme was a novel one to a Frankston audiences and every item was loudly applauded, encores being the order of the evening. The dancing of Miss Raie Langley was a treat in itself and the singing of Miss Rona Miller was splendid. The Langwarrin Orchestra played excellent music. Mr J. B. Jolly presided and in a neat speech introduced the Merry Eight Comedy Company, and welcomed them to Frankston.

In the course of his speech the chairman said that this company of talented young ladies had for a long period, with unfading energy and success, been creating pleasure for thousands who had extended patronage to them, and thereby swelling Red Cross, Repatriation and various patriotic funds. To date this company have netted £700. *** THE ceremony of planting an honor avenue to the memory of the men who enlisted from Frankston will take place at Frankston today, at 3 o’clock. The State Governor, Senator Miller and Captain Bruce, M. P. will be the principal speakers. When completed the avenue will be one mile long, and the tree selected is that fine Australian specimen Eucalyptus Batryoides. A feature of the function will be the presence of 500 returned soldiers. These will be conveyed to Frankston by the Volunteer Motor Corps, which on that day will complete its 500th soldiers’ motor excursion. The corps reserved its 500th trip for Frankston, in recognition of the extensive hospitality of the Frankston Wattle Club to soldiers. The Wattle Club will entertain the 500 returned soldiers at luncheon after the ceremony. *** HASTINGS school boys journeyed to Crib Point on Saturday to play football, the game being a very fine one. The total scores being, Hastings, 8 goals 6 behinds 54 points to Crib Point 5 goals 10 behinds 40 points.

Mrs Lewis and Mrs Davis of Crib Point treated the boys to afternoon tea, which was much appreciated by them. *** THE Lady Mayoress’ League (Somerville Branch) is giving a Japanese Fair in aid of the Comforts Fund etc, on August the 16th and 17th. Captain Bruce M. C., M H.R. has been asked to open the Fair. Mr Duncan Puckle is Hon. Organiser and Mrs Ralph Philbrick Hon. Sec. and a strong committee is being formed to make the affair of as widespread interest as possible. The local Red Cross Society has been asked to cooperate and share the profits. The interest of the Shire Council and other local bodies is also asked. The fair promises to be a huge success. Particulars will appear in our advertising columns at an early date. *** THE Frankston Electric Lighting Company is gradually enlarging its sphere of usefulness. Since Monday last it has been running an all night service, viz, from 5 p.m. to 7.30 a.m. This will prove of great benefit to those requiring light after the usual hours and should be an incentive to those not having it laid on to have it as speedily as possible. *** IN aid of that worthy body, the Frankston Red Cross society, a grand concert will be given in the Frankston hall on Saturday evening, 17th August. Mr J. B. Jolly, the Hon. Organiser, is

getting together some of Melbourne’s best professional artists, who will give their services gratis. It is expected that the celebrated actress and dancer, Miss Maud Chatwynd will appear, together with the gifted soprano, Miss Elsie Trewick. *** ADAMSON Strettle and Co will hold their monthly sale at Tanti, on Monday, when a good yarding will be offered, for sale, and on Wednesday next they will hold a clearing sale at Carrum, on behalf of Mr Christensen, who is disposing of his dairy cattle, horses, implements, etc. The sale will commence at 1.30 o’clock. *** THE Rev. Watts, of Holy Trinity Church, Hastings, preached a memorial service to the late Mrs Olive Bowells. *** ARBOR Day was observed at the Langwarrin State School on Friday, July 5th, when a number of trees were planted by the scholars and parents who attended. The school grounds are now stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs and gives promise of soon becoming an attractive, and picturesque spot. A rain gauge has been purchased and the following rain record for June has been registered by. the scholars and Head Teacher. *** SHIRE of Frankston and Hastings, MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the above was held on Thursday, 4th July. Present:– Crs Oates, in the chair,

Mason, Turner, Hodgins, Watt, Unthank and Longmuir. An apology was received from Cr Clements for inability to attend. Engineer’s Report – The work of sheeting the Pt.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Oh me, Oh my, OBike By Stuart McCullough SO that’s it, then. After just a few short months, they’ve given up and shipped out. For good. And while their appearance seemed a truly mysterious thing, their exit from our fair city is not mysterious at all. We drove them to it. Which, given we’re talking about bicycles rather than cars, is perhaps the cruelest insult of them all. Having now broken their spirit, they decided to roll on to some less-hostile territory. So long, obikes. I first saw one when jogging. It was dark and I was pretty tired, and I’ll admit I was a little startled to see it. I simply didn’t understand why a yellow bicycle was standing on the side of the road as though someone had left it behind. It never occurred to me that it was on purpose. I jogged past hoping that the rightful owner might remember where it was he or she left it and that all would be right in the world. That, so I thought, was that. Until I saw another. It seemed so much more than mere coincidence. Or carelessness. It became clear to me that these yellow contraptions were a thing. A slightly confusing thing but a thing nevertheless. I assumed that this was some kind of broad-ranging art project, doubtless connected to some festival. But I was way off. They were, in fact, for riding. Apparently, you need an app and you scan something and then it’s unlocked. By which time you might as well have walked. The great attraction of the oBike was the fact that it was ‘dockless’ and could be left pretty much anywhere, which is

PAGE 10

exactly what people did. It was as if we resented both the intrusion and their freedom and set about punishing them for it. OBikes were strewn across the country and abandoning one in the most obscure place possible became something of a national pastime. They were welded together, abandoned in trees and light

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 11 July 2018

poles and thrown into the river en masse where they were left to rust in a watery grave. Frankly, we were cruel and we were mean. It begs the question: what was it about the oBike that made us so angry? Perhaps we fear change. Something new that challenges traditional ways of thinking can be difficult. Or maybe

it was the bike itself – would we have felt such antipathy if – for example – they’d used a brand of bike we all know and love, like a Malvern Star? Could it be that they were far too utilitarian for our tastes? Truth be told, the oBike was the cycling equivalent of a Trabant. You didn’t see packs of middle aged dudes in lycra riding along Beach Road on oBikes. I suspect the element of surprise kind of worked against them. They seemed to appear pretty much without warning or explanation and we resented the intrusion. The social contract had not been drafted, much less signed by all interested parties. They turned up without invitation and were treated as party crashers as a result. You can’t walk through a front door and then try to knock. You put people off that way. Our response was to treat it as an invasion of our turf and in a gang war, pretty much anything goes. It’s been ages since I’ve ridden a bike. As a kid, I evolved from a dragster through to a BMX without a second thought. Owning a bike is an essential piece of equipment that you have as a child. Along with a torch and a dressing gown, I couldn’t have imagined life without a bike back then. But for some reason, I haven’t ever owned a bike as an adult. That’s despite being middle aged and a perfect candidate for lycra – if, indeed, such a thing exists. The moment I could drive was the moment I left behind my bike. It’s still at my father’s place – he’s no doubt saving it just in case, some

twenty five years later, I should change my mind and decide that I really need to start riding a BMX again. It’s unlikely that I’ll feel overwhelmed by the need to perform jumps, bunny hops and monos anytime soon, but I’ll ask him to hang on to it. Just in case. I’m hoping he still has my torch and dressing gown. I miss them. After years not riding a bike, a ride on an oBike might have been the ideal way to get back into it. I’m not sure what was holding me back. Now it’s officially too late. I’ll never get the chance to cruise down to the milkbar and back or give anyone a dink. If dinking is still the done thing when it comes to bikes. (Come to think of it, when I see those large groups of riders on a Sunday morning, no one’s giving anybody a dink. It’s totally dinkless.) So farewell oBikes. Hopefully they’ll be collected up and released back into the wild where they can roam together across the open plains. Many years from now – once I’ve got my BMX back in working order – I’ll go for a long ride and see if I can spot a herd of them grazing together beside a river. Grazing beside a river would be a lot better than being thrown into one, that much is certain. Granted, they were a bit strange and were visual clutter of a kind, but I’m not sure why we know why we felt the need to punish them. Good luck to them. Long may they ride. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard Sharks slip up in sluggish conditions CHELSEA MORDIALLOC MENTONE NEWS

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn LADDER leaders Sorrento Sharks succumbed to Bonbeach in a shock loss at home this Saturday in wet and windy weather. Bonbeach, who have struggled with inconsistency all through the season, had to endure a fast starting Sorrento in a first quarter that saw Bonbeach only register two scoring shots to their opponent’s 12. Sorrento were wasteful in front of goal however, and could only register two goals and 10 behinds to keep Bonbeach in touch. Bonbeach capitalised on Sorrento’s wasteful form in front of goal in the second quarter, as they established a nine-point lead going into the halftime break. Given the horror conditions, both teams were struggling to put goals on the board, which ensured the contest remained even right through to the final siren. Although Bonbeach could only manage one goal in the second half, they managed to hold on their lead to claim an important victory over Sorrento 4.15 (39) to 6.11 (47). The loss sees Sorrento lose their firm grip on top of the ladder, as Edithvale-Aspendale are now only behind them on percentage following their impressive win over Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale also endured a difficult start and failed to adapt to the tough conditions, as they kicked seven straight behinds in the first term and went into the first break trailing last place Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale quickly recov-

ered from their sluggish first quarter and established a lead in the second term that they would hold onto for the rest of the day.

Seaford couldn’t keep up with the quality of their opponents and eventually fell to Edithvale-Aspendale 8.20 (68) to 5.6 (36).

Sam Monaghan and Michael Bussey were again amongst the best performers for Edi-Asp, who could claim top spot on the ladder should Sorrento slip up again in the coming weeks. Both sides sit at 10 wins and three losses going into the last month of the home and away season. At Greg Beck Oval, Frankston YCW were faced with a do or die situation as they looked to beat the Frankston Bombers claim their first win in six weeks. Since their victory over Mornington in Round 6, Frankston YCW have yet to claim a single win, and would shockingly drop out of the top five if they failed to secure a result over their Frankston rivals. The Bombers had the best of the early opportunities, as they dominated the inside 50 count and looked much the better side. Despite having all the momentum, the water-logged ground made it difficult to capitalise, and the Bombers only went into the half-time break with a narrow two-point lead. With the Stonecats battling hard to fight their way back into the game, the game looked set to go down to the wire. Only two goals were kicked in the second half, but the tough, contested football saw the rabid Frankston crowd on the edge of their seats. When the final siren sounded it was the Bombers who held onto a slim lead, as they claimed victory over the

Stonecats 5.11 (41) to 5.5 (35). The loss sees the Stonecats slump to sixth on the ladder, unchartered territory for the side that has dominated the league for so long. They will have a bye next weekend, which will allow them a chance to rest and regain some key names. YCW’s Byron Barry and Christian Ongarello were impressive against a relentless Bombers outfit, as they were able to provide consistent rebound to give their side a glimpse of hope. Jason Kingbury, Dale Sutton, and Matthew Harris were the best performers for the winning side. At Olympic Oval, Rosebud played host to Pines in what would turn out to be a miserable afternoon for the home team. Pines got off to an impressive start and took a twenty point lead into the first break, and Rosebud wouldn’t come close to catching up. Pines’ defence held strong and only conceded three goals for the whole afternoon, as they ran out as convincing 3.8 (26) to 11.12 (78) winners. Aaron Edwards kicked another four goals to take his tally for the year to 38 from 11 games. Most teams will enjoy a week off next week, with Seaford and Rosebud at Belvedere Reserve being the only MPNFL Division One action for the weekend.

Hastings hold onto top five by beating Yabbies DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have established a sixpoint gap between themselves and sixth place with a big win over Tyabb to put themselves in pole position for a finals spot. Hastings showed their intent early with a stunning five goals to zero first quarter in tough conditions, which set the tone for the remainder of the afternoon. Tyabb fought back to get within reach, but ultimately ran out of time and fell short by 16 points, going down to Hastings 10.7 (67) to 8.3 (51). Shaun Foster booted four goals in a best on ground performance for Hastings, while Jake Anderson impressed for the Yabbies with four goals of his own. It was business as usual for top of the ladder Dromana at home, as they beat Devon Meadows in a fairly comfortable victory. Devon Meadows kept in arms reach in the first term and went into the quarter time break only down by four, but Dromana quickly asserted their dominance in the second quarter. Devon Meadows were held scoreless in the second term, as Dromana ran away to a convincing lead that they would not let go of throughout the rest of the game. Rikki Johnston played his best game for the year, booting four goals for Dromana to help his side to an 8.15 (63) to 5.8 (38) win. There were also no surprises at Ballam Park Reserve as Karingal claimed a solid victory at home against Pearcedale. Coming off a shock loss to Langwarrin last week, the Bulls were looking to bounce back with a vengeance. The Bulls worked hard to put on a complete team performance, as they had eight individual goalkickers contribute towards a healthy win. With Chelsea hot on their heels, the Bulls could not afford to slip up, and they kept a hold of second place with a convincing 8.12 (60) to 6.5 (41) win. Chelsea needed to win to keep in touch with Karingal, and they did so in impressive fashion over a disappointing Rye outfit. The Seagulls struck hard early and has established a 22 point buffer by quarter time, which would prove to be insurmountable in the rough conditions. Scoring just one first-half goal, Rye struggled badly and never

looked a chance against their impressive Chelsea opponents. James Brain and Curtis Bywater kicked four goals each for Chelsea, the latter taking his tally for the year to 47, as the Seagulls claimed a comprehensive win 13.9 (87) to 4.6 (30). The win helped close the percentage gap, and they are now only marginally behind Karingal going into the closing rounds of the year. At Red Hill Recreation Reserve, Langwarrin travelled to take on fourth-placed Red Hill. Langwarrin came into the contest full of confidence having knocked off Karingal last weekend but unfortunately could not back up that performance. The Kangaroos started strong as both sides kicked two goals in the first term, but Langwarrin quickly lost control of the game as Red Hill held them scoreless for the next two whole quarters. Red Hill quickly kicked away and put on one of the most impressive defensive displays for the year as they ran away to a comfortable win. Langwarrin managed to score a few behinds in the final term but again failed to score a major as they went a stunning three quarters without a goal. Ben Hughes impressed with three goals for Red Hill, as his side completed a comfortable 7.13 (55) to 2.5 (17) win. In the final match of the weekend, Somerville hosted Crib Point in what would turn out to be another miserable afternoon for the visitors. Crib Point approached the game looking to claim just their second win for the year but were quickly put on the back foot as Somerville took a 15 point lead into the first break. Crib Point were able to prevent the home side from blowing out the lead too much, but ultimately could not fight their way back into the contest, as they went down to Somerville 9.8 (62) to 4.9 (33).

Strikers down Pines, Seaford wins again SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PENINSULA Strikers gave themselves a lifeline by winning Saturday’s State 2 South-East derby 2-0 against Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve. It was only the club’s second win in a season of turmoil but it gives Strikers hope that they can climb off the foot of the league ladder. Referee James Milloy took centre stage before the match with opinions varied as to whether or not he should allow the contest to take place given the drenching the pitch had taken with little respite in sight. And eight minutes into the contest the home team was wishing that Milloy hadn’t given the fixture the thumbs up. Big Alex van Heerwarden smashed the ball onto the crossbar after Pines had failed to clear a low curled freekick from Nathan Smith and John Prescott hammered the rebound past Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino to open the scoring. Pines striker Mitch Lander broke down the left in the 16th minute then cut inside but he sent his low shot wide of the far post and a minute later it was 2-0. Brandon Jansz, Danny Black and Sam Luxford had all joined Strikers recently from Mornington and although Jansz’s through ball intended for Prescott was blocked it eventually fell to the English striker and his clinical low finish from 10 metres gave Strikers some breathing space. CJ Hodgson had Pines’ best chances of the second half but he volleyed wide in the 86th minute and 18-year-old Strikers’ keeper Dylan Mery got down well three minutes later to save Hodgson’s strike from inside the area. While Strikers’ gaffer Jamie Skelly was delighted with the win he knows the enormity of the task facing his men if they are to save their State 2 status. “We have to play five teams in the relegation mix and realistically we’d want to win all five games but we are capable of that,” Skelly said. Strikers continue to target new signings and take on title chasing Knox City this weekend. Don’t be surprised if another one and possibly two newcomers feature against Knox. In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 3-2 away to championship-chasing Dandenong City last Friday night. Despite the gulf in class (and wages’ bill) and the home side dominating possession Langy proved to be a stubborn opponent and it took a contender for goal of the season from David Stirton

Derby delight: Peninsula Strikers’ central defender Alex van Heerwarden holds off Frankston Pines’ substitute Naseer Mohammad during Saturday’s 2-0 win. Picture: John Punshon

to settle the issue. Dandenong’s hallmark interpassing game was on show throughout the first half but the sides were locked at 1-1 at the break. Shaun Filipovic’s 8th minute header put City ahead but it paid for its profligacy in front of goal when Mehdi Sarwari’s close-range strike in the 33rd minute gave Langy the equaliser. But three minutes into the second stanza the Langy defence paid the price of failing to attack a curling cross from Shayan Alinejad on the right and the ball bounced inside the six-yard box before sneaking inside the far post to make it 2-1. When Brendan Richardson decided to take on two opponents in the 68th minute rather than pass he was stripped of the ball. Stirton spotted Langy keeper Robbie Acs off his line so he launched a remarkable strike from a few steps inside the attacking half sending the ball sailing over Acs’ head and into goal to the delight of the home fans and the City bench. But for Langy there’s no surrender and when John Kuol headed home in the 81st minute following a cross from substitute Liam Baxter it ensured an interesting finish to a contest that City should have put to bed earlier. In NPLW news Southern United’s under-12s drew 2-2 at home to Bayside United on Sunday with Emilia Ingles scoring for Southern. The under-14, under-16, under-19 and senior games were cancelled due to

the pitch condition. In State 1 South-East news Mornington paid the price for poor finishing and was eventually overrun by Richmond 4-1 at Kevin Bartlett Reserve on Saturday. A near post header from Mehdi Martin in the 17th minute put the home side in front and three minutes into the second half Vangelis Skraparas’ deflected shot from just outside the area made it 2-0. Arnold Suew broke down the left in the 59th minute and his cutback set up Juan Gallego for a tap-in and the same combination cut a swathe through the Mornington defence in the 80th minute with Gallego cleverly lobbing the ball over the head of advancing Mornington keeper Liam Little to make it 4-0. A superb long-range strike from Curtis Hutson in the 91st minute was the visitors’ sole reply. Mornington goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby has resigned. In State 3 South-East news Skye United won 4-0 at home to South Yarra in the race for second spot in the league. Referee Stefano Di Giovanni decided to play on a water-logged pitch and when Jack Gallagher was brought down inside the box in the 7th minute Caleb Nicholes converted from the spot. In the 43rd minute a Daniel Walsh volley following Jason Nowakowksi’s corner gave the home side a two-goal cushion at the break. Another pitch inspection took place before the second half started with

South Yarra adamant that the match should be called off. The referee disagreed and two minutes into the second half South Yarra’s Thomas Meredith told Di Giovanni what he thought of the decision to continue and was promptly red carded. Daniel Attard sent Nicholes through in the 56th minute and he gave Skye an unassailable lead with substitute Mitch Blake rounding off the scoreline in the 91st minute by heading home a Walsh cross. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United’s push to avoid relegation continued on Saturday when Matt Morris-Thomas’ men defeated Bayside Argonauts 3-2 at Shipston Reserve to record their third straight win. Bayside struck first after a botched clearance from Li Nam Wang in the 29th minute. Anton Magee struck a 25-metre belter into the top left corner giving Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou no chance. But Seaford hit back five minutes later when Bayside keeper Elliott Johnston parried a Dylan Waugh shot and Callum Richardson’s second spectacular overhead kick in three weeks squared the ledger. Bayside was the stronger side in the first 20 minutes of the second half having a goal chalked off for offside, hitting the crossbar twice and having a header cleared off the line. Against the run of play the visitors took the lead in the 70th minute after the tireless chasing of Matty Schwellinger was rewarded when he

won possession and his cross was met by Seaford captain Daniel Mota who side-footed home. In injury time Waugh turned on a bouncing ball and from long range struck it first time over a flat-footed Johnston to make it 3-1 but shortly after a through ball that should have been cut out by Zafiriou was won by Sam Jones who made it 3-2 making for a nervous few minutes for the visitors. In State 4 South news Baxter’s scheduled home clash with Dandenong Warriors was washed out. Meanwhile Somerville Eagles moved into second spot in State 5 South one point behind Lyndale United after Saturday’s 4-1 home win over Casey Panthers. Somerville player-coach Dave Greening opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a scorching low drive but within a minute Casey had levelled thanks to a Marcus Roberts’ free-kick that home team keeper Brad Klarenbeek would want to forget. A handball early in the second half allowed Greening to restore the Eagles’ lead from the penalty spot and within five minutes it was 4-1. A superb Damian Finnegan pass was controlled by Greening with a great first touch before he smashed his drive inside the near post then Joel Wade did well down the right before cutting the ball back to Greening who slammed in his fourth goal of another productive day for the league’s top scorer. “To be honest that could and should of been more,” Greening said. “But at this stage of the season it’s all about getting the three points, and we did that so that’s pleasing. “It was also good to ‘blood’ some of the in-form reserves late in the game to give them some senior game time to help their development.” Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Springvale White Eagles (Lawton Park), Mornington v St Kilda (Dallas Brooks Park), Peninsula Strikers v Knox City (Centenary Park), Old Scotch v Frankston Pines (H.A. Smith Reserve), Seaford Utd v Whitehorse Utd (North Seaford Reserve), Dingley Stars v Skye Utd (Chadwick Reserve), Noble Park v Baxter (Norman Luth Reserve), Aspendale v Pakenham Utd (Jack Grut Reserve), Somerville Eagles bye. SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Calder Utd (Monterey Reserve, U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).
