Recycling charge up ‘China crisis’ forces rise Neil Walker

Digging it Todd and Cleo are shovel ready at the opening of a new pathway at Parkdale Preschool. See page 8. Picture: Gary Sissons

RATEPAYERS across Kingston face a rise in charges for recycling after China banned almost all recycling materials previously sold to China from Australia. Any items with a plastics or paper component of just 0.5 per cent can no longer be sent to China as part of that country’s push to stop “foreign rubbish” imports. Kingston councillors voted at a special meeting held on Monday 13 May to discuss council’s draft budget and decided to pass on a $25 increase annually for each household in the municipality. Council CEO John Nevins said the draft budget had originally forecast “a minor increase of $13 per property” but this had risen to $31 per household. Councillors voted on Monday to absorb $6 of the rise per household and pass on a $25 increase instead. “Unfortunately the ongoing volatility in the recycling market means that local governments are now facing greater costs than first expected with Kingston facing increased costs of approximately $31 per household to ensure the recycling service can continue,” Mr Nevins said. “While many councils are passing on the increases in full to ratepayers, Kingston Council has decided to share the burden of the increased

recycling costs and will pay $6 per household and pass on the remaining $25 increase. As a result, Kingston Council has reissued its advertised draft budget to reflect this change.” The CEO said council will now look at making $400,000 in annual savings across its budget to fund the $6 absorption. Councils across Victoria are being forced to increase recycling charges as the China crisis begins to bite in the recycling chain. The charge is separate to rates and is not capped under the Labor state government’s rate capping policy introduced in 2016. Rates are capped at a limit calculated using the consumer price index annual rise as a benchmark. Neighbouring Frankston Council last month flagged a $38 annual rise for its ratepayers. Councils can apply to the Essential Services Commission for an exemption to increase rates above the cap in “exceptional circumstances”. Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg met state environment ministers in Melbourne late last month to discuss how Australia can avoid a recycling pile-up on its shores. Mr Frydenberg announced after the meeting the federal government will work with state governments to try to make almost all packaging reusable or compostable by 2025.

Women with Soul take centre stage THIS year’s Mornington Winter Music Festival celebrating Jazz, Blues, Soul and more hosts some of our music industries iconic and upcoming female performers. Deborah Conway has been an eminent contributor to Australian music for over 30 years. Conway was named a Living Legend twice by the Rolling Stone Magazine. “It is a challenge to find any musical work Conway has been involved with that isn’t simply magnificent” wrote Sydney Morning Herald. With hits such as ‘Man overboard’, ‘It’s only the beginning’ and ‘Release Me’ just to name a few, Deborah and musical collaborator Willy Zygier will put on a show not to be missed. They are currently writing for their 10th release due out in 2019. Deborah and Willy take centre stage Friday 8th June at The Grand. The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is the perfect venue for one of Australia’s favourite musician, actor and broadcaster, Clare Bowditch. The Aria Awardwinning songwriter will captivate audiences with an evening of Jazz in an elegant venue to match. Making her debut on the Peninsula at the Mornington Yacht Club is Sydney Jazz musician Mary Heart. Having performed Internationally with many music legends including New York’s jazz drumming sensation, John Riley, and Australian pop legends, The Whitlams, Mary reinterprets today’s most popular music in a retro style. She is a jazz singer with great instinct breaking down the walls between genres by blending the old with the new. Let her cast her spell with the hot sounds of New Orleans, rockabilly rhythms and endless energy. Soul is the word on the street this year and as part of the Cookin’ on 3 Burners Soundtrack Session: The Big Chill, Clairy Browne and Stella Angelico would have to be two of the best female soul performers. You might remember Clairy from her harmonizing girl group, the Bangin’ Rackettes. For one night only, the girls team with Andrew De Silva and the Burners after their soldout show at the Victorian Art Centre. “It’s wonderful to attract such remarkable national talent to the Peninsula and showcase our emerging local singers”, said Bec Davis Festival Director. “Thanks to the Mornington Peninsula Shire and our Major sponsors Bowman & Company and Mornington Mazda for supporting this event.

MARITIME Safety Victoria will put the heat on jet ski “hoons” after little sign of improvement in behaviour as the peak season comes to an end. “A small but reckless group of jet ski operators are ignoring how dangerous their machines can be,” MSV acting director of maritime safety Rachel Gualano said. “Much like on our roads, irresponsible operation of high-powered machines, often without adequate experience, poses the threat of serious injury and fatalities. “Every agency involved in ensuring all water users have equal enjoyment of our bays, rivers and lakes – including Victoria Police – has had enough of the behaviour of jet ski hoons,” said. During Maritime Safety Victoria’s ‘Ride Right’ summer campaign, more than 100 personal watercraft (PWC) riders were fined in a Maritime Safety Victoria crackdown alongside Victoria Police officers. More than 450 riders of PWCs such as jet skis were approached and while most played it safe, 67 riders received multiple infringement notices for flouting the rules. The worst locations for jet ski hooning were found to be at Carrum, Port Melbourne, Safety Beach and St Kilda. Further enforcement action will now be considered. Breach of speed and distance rules leads to a $317 fine. Riding an unregistered craft or riding unlicensed can cost $793. If a speed and

First among responders: SES crews often help free trapped drivers and passengers after major car crashes. Picture: Gary Sissons

Orange day to honour SES PEOPLE can show appreciation this month for State Emergency Services volunteers who help out during road rescues and storms. Wednesday 23 May is Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) Day, a nationwide day for Australians to dress in orange to thank SES crews for their assistance in fraught times. SES volunteers across Victoria responded to more than 31,000 requests for help last year, putting in 302,623

hours collectively to respond to emergencies. VICSES operations chief officer Tim Wiebusch said WOW Day “is an important day of appreciation for our volunteers who selflessly dedicate their time and skills to helping their communities during their times of greatest need”. “Every day our volunteers are prepared to drop everything and put on their orange overalls to respond to re-

quests for assistance from their local communities,” Mr Wiebusch said. “Wearing orange on 23 May at your workplace, school or wherever you may be, will show appreciation for our volunteers, along with the families and employers that make this support possible.” Messages of thanks to VICSES volunteers can be shared on WOW Day using the hashtags #thankyouSES and #WOWday on Facebook and Twitter.

CRIME Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for witnesses following the assault of a deaf Uber driver in Frankston North late last month. The attack happened on FrankstonDandenong Road at Carrum Downs on Sunday 29 April at 9.30pm. The victim, a 64-year-old deaf man from Wallan, told police he saw a black Holden Captiva driving erratically in the right-hand lane. As the Uber driver passed the Captiva, he flashed his lights to let the driver know he was passing on the inside lane. The Captiva then slowed down and changed lanes, driving directly behind the victim, who was slowing down to turn on to Ballarto Road. As the victim attempted to turn off, the Captiva struck the back of his vehicle before accelerating away along Frankston-Dandenong Road. The victim followed the Captiva, at a distance, until it turned off on to a side street. He pulled in behind the Captiva and began to write the Captiva’s registration details into a book. While doing this a male occupant got out of the Captiva and approached the victim’s car. He opened the driver’s side door and snatched the book from the victim’s hand. The victim got out of his car indicating that he wanted the book returned. The man punched the victim in the face causing cuts to his eyebrow and forehead. Two other men got out of the Captiva and began hitting the victim on his body and head. The victim fell to the ground with the men continuing to assault him. A passing man and woman inter-

vened, causing the men to run away. The victim managed to drive to Frankston Police Station where an ambulance was called to take him to hospital. The victim was unable to tell police the exact location of the assault and did not get the names of the couple that came to his aid. Investigators have released an image of a woman, below, seen with the Captiva at a service station before the assault who they believe can help with their enquiries. Police are hoping to identify to the couple who helped the victim and identify the exact location of the assault. Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at online.

Big bucks for rail but Neil Walker

Mark Dreyfus

‘Big business’ budget slammed by Labor FEDERAL Labor Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus has hit out at the federal budget as favouring “big business” over health services and education. Mr Dreyfus said Prime Minister “Malcolm Turnbull had one last chance to fix five years of unfairness — and he failed”. “Instead Mr Turnbull gave an $80 billion handout to big business through a corporate tax cut, while locking in cuts to schools, universities and Medicare,” he said. “Budgets are about priorities and this is a government that has prioritised tax cuts for big multinationals over better schools and hospitals. It’s as simple as that. “The government’s insistence on keeping the Medicare rebate freeze in place for years to come will force up out-of-pocket costs to see specialists and hurt residents of Isaacs.” Mr Dreyfus said: “The Liberals will rip away funding from hospitals, schools and the ABC to further boost the balance sheet of big business and the banks.”

A PLEDGE to spend $225 million to electrify rail tracks from Frankston to Baxter was the big ticket item for the region in last week’s federal budget. Federal Liberal Treasurer Scott Morrison confirmed the federal government’s commitment to the project as part of a $7.8 billion package for new roads and rail lines across Victoria. But it seems construction works to extend the metropolitan line to Baxter are still some way down the track. The project is not yet fully funded and a business case has not been completed before the federal and state governments can agree on a funding split. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther said estimates “are between $500-800 million for the build” when asked. “The $3 million federal Coalition governmentfunded business plan, commenced a couple of weeks ago by the state government, will determine the full build options and associated costs,” Mr Crewther said. “The overall budget for the project won’t be known until the business plan is finished.” The Dunkley MP said it will take about four years to electrify the rail line from Frankston to Baxter after work begins. “Given $225 million is already on the table to build the project, works can start on part of the project quite soon after the business plan is finished and after a build option is chosen from the options presented.” The business plan is expected to be finalised later this year. Labor candidate for Frankston, Peta Murphy, supports the electrification of the line to Baxter but questioned the federal government’s head-

Crafty cut for beers THERE were cheers all around about a tax cut for craft beer brewers after last week’s federal budget but price drops are unlikely to trickle down to drinkers. Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison has decided smaller brewing businesses will no longer be slugged a higher excise rate on smaller kegs under 48 litres in volume. Mr Morrison and Coalition finance minister Mattias Corman visited a brewery in Canberra to toast the craft beer tax drop ahead of the 2018-19 federal budget released on Tuesday 8 May. Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther hailed the tax relief measure as “giving local brewers a fair go” when competing against major brewing firms. “Previously, beer kegs larger than 48 litres have been taxed at a lower rate than smaller kegs, which meant that craft breweries were already having to start behind large companies, with far more resources and buying power than microbreweries,” Mr Crewther said. “This was ridiculous and unfair and it is something I met with Mr Banks brewery in Seaford and Mornington Peninsula Brewery in Mornington about, and then put in advocacy to get changed.” The alcohol excise refund scheme cap will rise from $30,000 a year to $100,000, from 1 July next year for all brewers and distillers. Dan Dainton, co-founder of Dainton Family Brewery in Carrum Downs welcomed the excise change. “It’s a big improvement on an archaic tax that makes producing beer on a small and medium scale pretty expensive,” Mr Dainton said. “The ability to claim $100,000 is fantastic and much welcomed, though it is far from the $500,000 that wine and cider producers can claim. So the


playing field is still quite unequal in that regard.” Mr Dainton said the tax relief would mean the business could hire more staff. He said drinkers shouldn’t necessarily raise a glass to cheaper craft beer though. “I doubt it will have any impact on pricing for the consumer as energy prices are increasing dramatically,” Mr Dainton said. He said smaller kegs are easier to move and 50-litre kegs weigh about 65kg. “All in all I think it is a smart move for businesses and for the health and safety of everyone involved.” The Independent Brewers Association also welcomed the excise rebate. “Australia’s 450 small, independent brewers will take that additional excise rebate and invest it back in their businesses,” association CEO Ben Kooyman said. “That will mean they will be able to increase their production, invest in quality improvement and most importantly hire more staff to join over 2400 Australians the industry already employs.” Big brewers will also benefit from a flattening of the excise rate if they use smaller kegs. Major corporations including have moved into the “craft beer” label space prompting the IBA to highlight the differences between larger craft beer brewers and smaller independent businesses.

line $225 million figure since most of the money will not be spent in the near future. “It’s a hoax to suggest that the infrastructure funding in this budget is actually in the budget,” Ms Murphy said. “It is of concern that promises are being made when there’s no money in this year’s [2018-19] budget.” Ms Murphy noted about $60 million in federal funding for the Baxter line electrification has been allocated up until 2021-23. “I’m sceptical of the Turnbull government’s funding in any of this budget.” The RACV said the federal government’s backing for transport infrastructure upgrades across the state is “great news for Victorians” but noted extended timelines on the projects means there does not appear to be “any hurry” at this stage. “The critical point going forward will be on when this funding is delivered,” RACV public policy and corporate affairs general manager Bryce Prosser said. “The budget infrastructure announcements are good and promise a lot for Victoria, but the detail suggests that it will be some time before Victorians will see any real action on the ground.” Mr Prosser said “more divisive politics” should be avoided. “Victorians want our governments to work together to deliver the best projects for Victoria which cater to the needs of our growing population.” Mr Crewther said the business plan will investigate the cost of extending metro rail to a new Frankston Hospital station, Leawarra station at Monash University Peninsula Campus, a new Langwarrin train station and Baxter station. Committee for Greater Frankston CEO Ginevra Hosking said the federal money “is the first serious commitment to a vital regional project”.

timing means everything ‘ScoMo’ flies budget flag FEDERAL Treasurer Scott Morrison, left, came to Frankston on Friday morning to fly several flags – one for his budget, one for Health Minister Greg Hunt, the federal MP for Flinders covering the Mornington Peninsula, and one for Dunkley MP Chris Crewther who faces a battle to retain his marginal seat at the next election. The three Liberal MPs sheltered from the inclement weather outside Frankston Hospital’s emergency department to pose for media photos and footage before touring the hospital with executives including Peninsula Health’s new CEO Felicity Topp. Later Mr Crewther introduced the Treasurer to national, state and local media as well as hospital, Peninsula Health and Monash University officials: “It’s great to be here at Frankston Hospital today with the Treasurer of Australia Scott Morrison and Minister for Health Greg Hunt to talk about what the budget means for health care in Dunkley and across the nation.” Mr Crewther said they had just met 10-year-old Ally Clarke, who suffers from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), and her parents who have been strong

advocates for medication used in treating the condition to go on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme PBS), which was announced in the Budget. The Treasurer, also known as “ScoMo”, said it had been “wonderful to meet the whole team here at the hospital” before launching into his Budget sell. Mr Morrison said the rail line extension had been an important local project for a long period of time. He said federal infrastructure spending in Victoria announced in the Budget was “the greatest of any state or territory”. “In Victoria, we’ve really ponied up; we’ve really stepped up.” Mr Hunt echoed the strong economy theme and said the federal government was investing $30 billion in hospitals across the nation [over five years]. After taking questions about the dual citizenship saga, which gave Mr Morrison a chance to criticise federal opposition leader Bill Shorten, the three MPs and their entourages decamped to Benito’s restaurant on the highway between Mt Eliza and Mornington for a Liberal Party lunch. Mike Hast

MP against electorate changes Neil Walker FEDERAL Liberal MP Chris Crewther is lobbying the Australian Electoral Commission to prevent boundary changes to his electorate of Dunkley. Mr Crewther, who won the seat at the 2016 federal election with a slim majority, would face a tight fight to hold the seat if proposed AEC electorate boundary changes are made later this year. The Dunkley electorate will lose Mornington and the northern part of Baxter in its south to the seat of Flinders, held by Liberal MP Greg Hunt, and gain Carrum Downs, Sandhurst

and Skye to the north from the Isaacs electorate, held by Labor MP Mark Dreyfus, if the changes become reality ahead of the next federal election. ABC elections analyst Antony Green estimates Dunkley would become winnable for Labor with a margin of 0.9 per cent based on votes cast in 2016. Mr Crewther wrote to community groups such as Baxter residents and traders group BRATPAC urging them to make submissions to the AEC objecting to the planned Dunkley electorate boundary changes. In an email to BRATPAC seen by The News, Mr Crewther said: “The proposal that they have indicated would mean that Baxter and Mornington would no longer be considered part of the Dunk-

ley electorate – they would go into the Flinders electorate. “Clearly I am not at all in agreement with this suggestion as I believe that Baxter is a vital part of the Dunkley electorate and very much a part of the lovely village/country feel that we all love and enjoy. I also believe Baxter, Mornington and Frankston are intrinsically connected.” Mr Crewther listed several potential objections to the boundary change in the email to BRATPAC. “This of course must be BRATPAC’s own submission in its/your own words. The AEC will likely favour arguments around combining suburbs/ towns insofar as possible, linking ‘communities of interest’ and clear ge-

ographical boundaries (such as roads, locality borders, waterways, etc). “They are not interested in political arguments around seat marginality (and associated funding), or whether the redistribution will favour one party or another.” The AEC is proposing changes to several electorate boundaries across the state in a reorganisation of electorates to accommodate two new electorates to reflect population growth and changes. One new electorate will be called Monash, taking in the eastern and northern parts of the existing Flinders electorate, and the other will be the Fraser electorate in Melbourne’s western suburbs. BRATPAC founding chairman Pe-

ter Baulch submitted objections to the Dunkley changes in both BRATPAC’s and his behalf on 1 and 2 May respectively. Mr Crewther’s email to Mr Baulch and BRATPAC was dated 29 April. AEC spokesman Evan Ekin-Smyth said “there is nothing preventing” MPs encouraging community groups or residents to make submissions to the federal independent agency that coordinates and supervises federal elections and referendums. “It is fine for any person or organisation to campaign for a particular change to boundaries or names of electoral divisions or for people to object to a proposal,” Mr Ekin-Smyth said.

MP says electorate changes ‘divisive’ Continued from page 7 When contacted by The News, Mr Baulch said he believes the south part of Baxter should be moved from the Flinders electorate into Dunkley and all of Baxter should be placed in the Dunkley electorate. “The community shouldn’t be divided by electorate boundaries,” he said. “All of it should be in Dunkley because Baxter identifies with Frankston and Mornington and has no ties with the southern part of the peninsula.” Submissions to the AEC closed on 18 May. Individuals and organisations can make comments about the submissions until 6pm on Friday 18 May at online or by calling the AEC on 13 23 26.

Saturday’s working bee will be a chance for people to make a difference. Whether a new or existing volunteer, everyone is welcome to join in, meet new people and enjoy the outdoors. Activities on the day will include planting, mulching, pruning and an afternoon tea. “It’s well known that healthy parks contribute significantly to the health of people and wellbeing of our communities,” Parks Victoria area chief ranger Reece Taranto said. “Volunteering in our parks and waterways is a great way to connect with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. “There are significant social, physical and mental health benefits from to getting involved in our parks and waterways as a volunteer.” National Volunteers Week from 21-27 May celebrates the generous contribution of more than 6 million Australians who volunteer their time each year. This year’s National Volunteers Week theme ‘Give a little. Change a lot.’ speaks of the profound impact volunteers have on their communities through giving up their time. In Victoria, volunteers contribute more than 220,000 hours each year to protecting and enhancing more than 150 parks and waterways with Parks Victoria, the equivalent of $7.7 million worth of voluntary hours supporting the environment.

Paving way to early education WAYS to education take many paths and there is a new one set in concrete at Parkdale Preschool. A new pathway to replace an uneven gravel path in the preschool’s back garden was officially opened this month thanks to funding from Kingston Council and the Parkdale branch of Bendigo Bank.

The ribbon was cut on the new pathway on Saturday 5 May. “We are looking forward to seeing our children enjoy gross motor play including riding tricycles and bouncing balls on our new path,” Parkdale Preschool director Megan Miller said. The new pathway includes a roundabout for trikes.

Sport loses one of its biggest fans OBITUARY

Andrew Kelly 9/3/1970 - 5/5/2018 Journalist, sporting commentator By Keith Platt ANDREW Kelly had a few names. As a sports writer he chose his pseudonyms to suit his subject – Toe Punt for footy and I T Gully (In The Gully) for cricket. There was nothing subversive about him wanting to write under other names, but it was a decision made for the sake of appearing to be objective as Kelly was a player in some of the games he wrote about. Andrew Kelly became Toe Punt (Toey) and I T Gully. It ended up being an open secret, but his anonymity had never been about dodging any flak that his sometimes-flamboyant comments might evoke. Far from it, he enjoyed the feedback, from all directions. “He was controversial, he liked to be that way,” Andrew Kelly’s father Shane says about his eldest son. “He was fanatical about sport and about writing about it.” Andrew Kelly was 48 when he died on Saturday 5 May. Apart from two weeks at home, he had spent the past three months in the Peninsula Private hospital after being admitted for cancer treatment. Kelly was known for his commitment and positive attitude towards whatever he was doing, be it playing (football, cricket, squash, golf) or watching sport, coaching, being a club committee member, writing or spending time with his family. He loved boating and was particularly happy with his family on the water near their Paynesville holiday home. The internet enabled him to monitor games and matches and file his copy from Paynesville. He was a regular on several media platforms, print, radio and the internet. Father Shane says Andrew was his “best mate – we were only 18 years apart in age – was a people person”. He believes early school years spent in country Victoria contributed much to his son’s down-to-earth attitude and warmness to others. When Andrew was about five the family had moved to East Gippsland where Shane Kelly managed a sawmill at Combienbar, north of Cann River. The Kellys moved back to Melbourne, but those first four years of schooling had left their mark. Being involved in a succession of family businesses, milk bars and take-away foods, also nurtured young Andrew’s people skills. His secondary education started at Newhaven College on Phillip Island and Padua College, Mornington. He was hired by Leader Newspapers as a cadet journalist, working for that company on the Mornington Peninsula and at its then headquarters in Blackburn. He then moved to what would become a more

Chelsea • Mordialloc • Mentone

“People person”: Andrew Kelly was for decades a consistent player, supporter and multimedia commentator of grassroots level sport in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Supplied by the Kelly family

than 25-year involvement with the Independent News Group. It was at the behest of Tony Murrell, editor-in-chief at the Independent group, that Kelly began his career as Toe Punt and I T Gully. “We wanted a sports reporter, but he was also playing at the time and we couldn’t have him writing under his own name,” Murrell said. “He liked to create a discussion.” Kelly also wrote for more than 20 years under those bylines for the Pakenham-based Star News Group. He was an early user of online forums and would sometimes use them to “create” discussions (with a flippant remark) that – usually

close to deadline - he would quickly turn into newspaper articles. Kelly’s people skills also came in handy when he moved to public relations, the “dark side” of journalism, forming his own company Kellstar Communications. One of his widely acknowledged PR coups came after several members of the Australian cricket team were stricken by stomach problems during the 1998 tour of India. There were fears for their on-field form, especially that of spin bowler Shane Warne. Kelly was quickly onto food producer Heinz with the suggestion they send the team a shipment of baked beans.

The resulting publicity bounced around the world. “He was very enthusiastic with everything he took on,” Murrell said. “He was very likeable and had the best phone manner. He meant it, and people warmed to him.” After the Independent News Group was bought out by Fairfax Community News and in 2012 Kelly (and Toe Punt and I T Gully) moved their reporting duties to the Mornington Peninsula News Group (owner of this publication). Kellstar’s clients included Don Smallgoods, Tip Top Bakeries, Amcal Pharmacies and the E J Whitten Legends Game. He was Clark Rubber’s national public relations and communications manager as well as network development manager for three years until 2009. Andrew then had senior marketing roles with FC Business Solutions, Jim’s Group, Ventura Health and Bloom Hearing Specialists. His final job was national marketing and communications manager for Symbion, a national wholesaler of healthcare services and products to pharmacies and hospitals. While working these high profile jobs, Toe Punt Kelly never lost touch with sport on the peninsula. Journalist Mike Hast recalls “time in the broadcast box at Frankston Park when Toey and the boys were doing the Sorrento v Hastings grand final in 2011 - which Sorrento won by a point, breaking Hastings’ hearts. I had listened to Kel and the team calling the game on RPPFM many times, but being in the box was exciting for a print journo like me when Sorrento came back at the Blues, who were well in front at one stage”. “Kel was more excited than the Sorras’ fans as this was local footy at its best. Toey was one of the best ‘amateur’ callers I ever heard. Passionate, smart and quick as a flash.” Toey covered his first match in 1987 – a final at Alexandra Park in Mornington between Dromana and Sorrento. Such was the football community’s respect for Kelly that the 2018 season launch of the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League became a benefit for Andrew and his family. During the night, at which coaches and presidents discussed their clubs’ prospects for the season, there was an entertaining live video linkup to Kelly being interviewed in his hospital bed by Tony Blackford, a high profile MPNFL former player and coach. His bylines continued appearing in Mornington Peninsula News Group publications until late April, his illness forcing him to miss just one edition during his 12 weeks in hospital. Former colleague Fran Henke said the Kelly clan (her family name) “has lost a hero, way too early, but his giant heart, sense of humour, love of his family and friends will endure”. Andrew Kelly is survived by his wife Katy, son Lachy, daughter Breanna, father Shane, mother Maxine (Max), brother Adam and sister Tracey. A funeral was held for him at the Eagle Ridge Golf Club, Rosebud, on Monday 14 May.

A Brief History of the Middle Ages By Stuart McCullough THERE’S no getting around it. Not even with a Melways, a torch and sturdy pair of hiking boots. It’s just too big. Better, then, to take a deep breath and admit it outright – middle age has well and truly arrived and there is nothing left to do but to embrace it in all it’s tea-sipping, slipper-wearing, youth-pitying glory than to deny it. I’ll admit I was slow to realize. One moment, you’re an edgy, fashion-busting, envelopepushing bona-fide young person surfing the counterculture wave with the utmost of ease. Then, almost overnight, you’re stuck in middle age and yelling at the television. Not that there weren’t warning signs. I should have realized sooner. In particular, I should have realized once I no longer considered talk back radio to be a horrifying congregation of malcontented freaks that I stumbled across accidentally when attempting to move between 3RRR and PBS and, instead, considered it essential listening in order to remain informed, that something had changed. In fact, feeling that I need to be informed at all times is definitely a warning sign I chose to ignore. When I talk about vinyl, it’s not a reference to an item of clothing. Short of wearing lycra, talking about vinyl is the single-most middle aged thing anyone can do. I bang on about which albums I own and kid myself by thinking that by collecting shelves of the stuff I’m off the grid and sticking it to Apple Music. This is despite the fact that I grew up in a generation that


bought cassette tapes with ‘Dolby’ sound or whatever else they used to make it sound better when, really, they should have created something to stop it getting chewed up by your car stereo. It was our parents who collected vinyl, not us. We were the generation that treated the compact disc as though it would last forever. Which it will, only in the shed instead of the house. Despite this, we now bang on about vinyl and sound quality even though our hearing is completely cactus as a result of listening to Alice In Chains and Kyuss albums at an obscene volume. Which brings me to my next point – I know that I’m middle aged because I now claim that my generation had the greatest music of any generation.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 16 May 2018

That it is vastly superior to the horrific assault on the senses that passes for music these days and which – to my ears - all sounds the same because it’s been churned through the same computer program. But memory is such a selective thing. When I talk about the great music I listened to growing up, I’m thinking of bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, You Am I and the Fauves. I’m ignoring, however, that the nineties were also the era of boy bands, Britney and Celine Dion’s unholy zenith. It’s more than merely selective, it’s borderline dishonest. I no longer know what the inside of a nightclub looks like. I’m going to assume that nothing much has changed and that they remain the same wretched sinkholes of humanity

they always were. I long thought that hell is a nightclub where interminable sets by under-achieving covers bands are punctuated by blasts of ‘Tainted Love’ by Soft Cell and drink cards. It’s not just the idea of going out that doesn’t appeal to me, it’s that the prospect of staying up late will do irreparable damage to my sleep schedule and I may never recover. Medical appointments were once something that occurred with the frequency of Halley’s comet. Now I know the reception staff by name and am earning plenty of the medical equivalent of frequent flyer points. Leonard Cohen once sang about aching in the places he used to play. For me, my body is now in open rebellion against me and there’s very little I can

do about it. I am starting to accept bulges that I have previously regarded as a temporary result of a spectacular Christmas as permanent. This is the equivalent of finally accepting that the dodgy extension some hack built is probably part of the house. Perhaps most damning of all – I have started to use the term ‘young people’. Specifically, I’ve started to use the term ‘young people’ as a reference to a group of which I am no longer a part. It’s mutual too. Although I’m yet to have a seat offered to me on public transport by someone wearing a school uniform who is not Angus Young from AC/DC, that day is surely drawing ever closer. Next week, I have tickets to see a band. I’m already worried about whether I’ll be able to stay up late enough and how I’m going to recover from a lack of sleep in time to return to work. Even now, I’m thinking about where I’ll park the car and how the dog will react when we return late. As luck would have it, I’m seeing Augie March. They were big in the nineties and I have several of the albums on vinyl. It’s nothing to be afraid of. Not yet, anyway. As Generation X hurtles onwards, it’s inevitable that we’ll discover sorts of things about ageing that our parents already know, probably told us and we roundly ignored. But that’s alright. Each generation’s journey is it’s own. Now having said all that, I think I might make myself a cup of tea and have a lie down.


Captain Bruce claims Flinders election Compiled by Brodie Cowburn CAPTAIN Bruce was elected for the vacant seat at the by-election held last Saturday. The following is the result of the polling in key electorates: Dandenong: Bruce - 2225, Hall - 27, Holmes - 1216. Frankston: Bruce 1483, Hall - 30, Holmes - 479. Totals: Bruce - 14,445, Hall - 382, Holmes - 740. *** MR A. J. Munyard of the Department of Art, Working Men’s College, Melbourne, was specially asked by a local worker to assist the Frankston effort to the Red Cross by using his artistry to depict an Australian soldier starving in a German prison. He generously complied with the request and produced the pathetic picture “Starving in a German prison”, now on view at Mr Woods News Agency, Bay Street. It is hoped that its mute appeal will induce everyone who sees it to buy at least one “Red Cross House Badge”. The picture will be on view at the Red Cross Concert next Saturday, 25th May. *** LAST Thursday night a meeting of the Protestant Federation was held in the Mechanics Institute with the object of forming a branch in Somerville. The hall was well filled with an Enthusiastic audience. Rev Tonkin presided and the meeting opened with prayer. After the National Anthem had been sung, Rev. Tonkin addressed the meeting. Mr Ross then sang ”We’ll never let the old flag fall” Stirring addresses were made by two of the founders of the Federation Rev. Farquhar and Mr Ross of Ballarat.

Mr J. Twyford moved and Mr Horsfall seconded that a branch of the Federation be formed here. The motion was carried. *** SITUATED on the main Stony Point line, a few miles from Frankston, is the military camp Langwarrin and I would like all your readers to know this is one of the finest camps in Australia. The O.C. is loved by all under his command, and by all his friends who know him personally, and I think I can safely say, he and his staff are second to none. This camp is kept in beautiful order; the gardens are artistically laid out and are a sight worth going to see alone. Each flower bed is bordered by stones which are lime washed every day, and the whole camp is cleaned up three times a day. and not even a cigarette butt or match can be found lying about. Everything that thought and love can divise is introduced into this camp to make life for the boys more interesting. They have a beautiful hall and almost every evening there are pictures or plays. *** WE draw attention to the advertisement of Mr A Sullivan, who has purchased the bootmaking and repairing business lately carried on by Mrs Reynolds, in Bay Street, Frankston . Mr Sullivan, besides having stirling ability to recommend him is a returned soldier, having served with the A.I.F. for nearly three years. Customers are assured that their orders will be attended to skilfully

and promptly, and a trial is earnestly solicited. *** A WELL attended meeting of residents was held at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Friday evening 10th for the purpose of taking steps to form a Branch of the Protestant Federation at Frankston. Cr. Oates was in the chair and stirring addresses were delivered by Revs. F. Farquhar and G. Tregear. It was unanimously decided that a Branch be formed and on Friday evening next a meeting will be held in the hall to elect officers, and other routine in connection with the Federation. *** A MUSICAL treat is in store for Frankston next Saturday 25th May, when a high class concert will be given by members of the Melbourne Albert street Conservatorium of Music under the direction of Miss Mary Campbell. The proceeds are for the Australian Red Cross Fund, to provide food for imprisoned soldiers. A glance at the names on the programme in our advertising columns will show what is to be expected. This board of the great pleasure Miss Constance Buchan gave her audience here on 27th April last, will be glad to see that they now have an opportunity of hearing this charming songstress. Sergeant Widburn has kindly consented to assist and he has something quite new in “our boys songs.” For the special convenience of those who like a certain seat, the innovation of booking a seat in any part of the hall has been adopted. ***

THE inspector of nuisances (Constable A. D. Kerr) reported: Gentlemen, I have to report for the information of your council that during the month of April I had the body of a beast removed from Gordon street, at a cost of five shillings. Upon making inquiries regards ownership of the animal I eventually traced the owner, and he defrayed the cost of removal. *** MR and Mrs A Goodwin and family of Cranbourne Road, Frankston, desire to express with sincere and grateful appreciation their hearfelt thanks to the Rev. E. Tonkin, Teachers and Office bearers and members of the Methodist Church and Sabbath School, also to Mrs Twining, President and office bearers and members of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and all dear friends in Frankston for their numerous letters, Cards and visits of comforting, Sympathy and Condolence, in this hour of sorrow at the loss of our dear third son Pte. Edward James Goodwin 1932, B. Company, 23 Batt. Died of wounds, April 8th 1918 in France. Aged 20 years and 8 months after 2 years and 8 months active service. A memorial service will be held in the Presbyterian Church, Burnley St. Richmond tomorrow evening 19 inst, where our dear laddie was chistened and trained to follow the Path of Love and Duty to his God and Country. He taught in the Sabbath School and was an ardent worker in the Church. *** CPL. F. MacDonald who was decorated with a Distinguished Conduct Medal by His Excellency the Gover-

nor General at Melbourne on Friday May 10th, is a resident of Langwarrin who, with his big brother, was accepted for active service early in 1915; unfortunately the brother has been a prisoner of war in Germany for the last two years. At the outbreak of the war these two young men were engaged in farming pursuits here, but the call for volunteers found them ready and both of them have participated in some of those memorable actions that have made the name of Australia’s soldiers famous the world through *** Municipal Notices.

scoreboard Ladder leaders suffer shock first defeat



By Brodie Cowburn IT was a week of firsts in the MPNFL Division One competition this weekend with Frankston YCW slipping up for the first time this season, going down in a shock loss at home to Pines on Saturday. After a disappointing performance against bottom placed Mornington last week, YCW were made to pay for their poor form with their first defeat of the year in a tense contest. The low scoring affair saw both teams struggle for goals, with Frankston YCW putting on two goalless quarters. Neither side was able to bag a major in the final term, and Pines were able to hang onto a three goal lead to claim victory 5.9 (30) to 8.8 (56). It was a weekend of contrasting fortunes for bottom placed Mornington however, who battled hard to earn their first victory of the year in a thriller against Bonbeach at Alexandra Park. Mornington again had to endure a final quarter comeback from their opposition, but this week held on to emerge as victors, winning 8.7 (55) to 8.6 (54). The one point win takes Mornington to one win and six losses for the year, but they still find themselves bottom of the ladder. However, they are now only a win away from surpassing Seaford and Rosebud and lifting themselves from last place. A disappointing Bonbeach side will be looking to bounce back quickly against Seaford at home next Saturday. It was another disappointing weekend for Seaford, who were easily beaten by a clinical Sorrento side on Saturday. Leigh Poholke of Sorrento continued his excellent run of goal scoring form, bagging four majors to help his side to victory. Poholke has now scored 12 goals in his last three games, establishing himself as one of the competition’s in form players.

Sorrento were comfortable throughout the entire day, and eventually waltzed to an easy 14.8 (92) to 5.10 (40) victory. The win saw Sorrento capitalise of Frankston YCW’s shock loss, as they leapfrogged them to finish on top of the ladder at the end of the round. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Mt Eliza were able to pile more misery on an already torrid Rosebud season, winning with ease in a one sided affair. Rosebud were competitive in the early stages, and went into half time only six points behind their third placed opponents. Despite their early signs of fight, a third quarter onslaught of eight goals to one saw Mt Eliza blow Rosebud out of the water, ending the game with a comfortable 17.9 (111) to 6.16 (51) victory. Jordan Capkin was the pick of the goalkickers on the day with five majors, while the league’s top goal scorer Jordan Moncrieff continued his impressive start to the year with another bag of four, taking his tally for the season so far to 25. Edithvale-Aspendale were the last of the victors for the weekend, fighting off a spirited Frankston Bombers at Greg Beck Oval. The match was neck and neck all throughout the afternoon, with Frankston Bombers battling hard to enter three-quarter time with a two point lead. Despite their advantage going into the main break, Edithvale-Aspendale were able to find another gear in the final term, holding the Bombers scoreless. Best on ground performances by Nicholas Connellan and Sam Monaghan were enough to drag EdithvaleAspendale over the line, eventually running out 7.10 (52) to 11.11 (77) victors. Edithvale-Aspendale will leave the clash full of confidence heading into next week’s blockbuster against Mt Eliza at Regents Park, with the winner set to cement their position in third place.

Rye survive rampant Red Hill resurgence DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A TWO point thriller between Red Hill and Rye was the pick of the games in MPNFL Division Two football this weekend. Eventual winners Rye were comfortably ahead for most of the day, but a last quarter fight back from Red Hill almost soured their day. Going into the last quarter, Rye held a comfortable 29 point lead, with their opponents only managing to have kicked a paltry two goals and seven behinds. Red Hill however looked a different side after the last break, and piled on five goals to one in a thrilling last quarter that saw the contest come down to the wire. Despite the barrage of final quarter goals from Red Hill, Rye were able to just hold on to win, and will be sure to not get complacent in future contests after this almighty scare. Rye’s Thomas Baker and Tyrren Head were listed as best on ground in the 7.11 (53) to 8.7 (55) win. Crib Point went into their home clash against struggling Langwarrin hopeful they could notch their first win of the season, but they again struggled as Langwarrin were able to secure a comfortable victory to steady their rocky start to the year. The leading goalscorer for the league Jesse Murphy again starred for Langwarrin, booting


six goals in a best on ground performance. The forward has been in unstoppable form as of late, and Crib Point could do little to stop him. Mykelti Lefau of Crib Point hammered home five goals of his own, but ultimately it was for nothing as Langwarrin secured an easy 8.7 (55) to 12.10 (82) win, taking them to seventh on the ladder and leaving Crib Point languishing in last place. Another intriguing clash between two sides battling near the bottom of the ladder was the match between Tyabb and Pearcedale at Bunguyan Reserve on Saturday. Pearcedale’s Luke Jennings, playing his first match for the season, played an integral role in securing a win for his side with a five goal performance. Pearcedale led for close to the whole day, finishing with a comfortable 10.11 (71) to 16.13 (109) win. Pearcedale will have to be on the top of their game next week to be any hope of taking out a second consecutive win, as they are set to take on an unbeaten Dromana, who cemented their spot on the top of the ladder with a win against a respectable Hastings side. Hastings, sitting at fifth on the ladder going into the match, did not look overawed by the occasion and went into quarter time with scores level against their undefeated opponents at Dromana Recreation Reserve. Despite fighting hard, Dromana simply were

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 16 May 2018

too good, with another three goals from inform Ethan Johnstone helping them to a 16.16 (112) to 11.8 (74) win. Ending the round just below Dromana in second and third place on the ladder were Karingal and Chelsea, who both enjoyed a fairly worry free round of football this weekend. Karingal hosted Devon Meadows at home on Saturday, and never looked like losing. Devon Meadows struggled badly to break down Karingal, only managing one goal in the first half. While Devon Meadows were able to win respect by holding Karingal goalless in the third quarter, it wasn’t enough to get them close to a victory, with Karingal claiming a comprehensive win 10.17 (77) to 3.8 (26). Chelsea also put on a clinical performance away from home against Somerville, claiming all four points without much hassle. Chelsea looked a class above, with Curtis Bywater’s six goals being the highlight of an easy day at work. Bywater now has 23 goals for the year, putting himself comfortably in contention to claim the league’s leading goal kicker award come seasons end. Somerville find themselves with a good chance to make amends with a clash against lowly Tyabb next week, but for now will have to lick their wounds as they went down by 42 points to Chelsea, 7.16 (58) to 15.10 (100).

Langy dumps Dorron, new trio arrives SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie Langwarrin has sacked giant secondstring keeper Josh Dorron and is on the lookout for a replacement. Dorron will join State 1 South-East outfit Caulfield Cobras a week later than planned after Langy held up his clearance late last week. The local club was incensed when told that Dorron had trained elsewhere without informing Langy’s coaching staff. The good news is that long-serving Langy boss Gus Macleod welcomes three new faces at training this week. Queensland strikers Matt Heath and Chris Swain will be joined by tall central defender Lloyd Clothier. Heath is from Brisbane-based Olympic FC, Swain is from Sunshine Coast Fire and Clothier is from Victorian club Malvern City. Langy signed Heath a few months ago but Swain and Clothier will have to wait until the NPL transfer window opens on Monday 28 May before being eligible to play. Macleod already has three places in his senior squad to fill after Nabil Mozaffaruddin was ruled out for the season with a knee injury, Sergio Yanez has left for work reasons while Esmael Zaheri joined Morwell Pegasus last month. Langy lost 3-1 at home to Altona Magic on Saturday. Mornington’s recovery from a horror start to the State 1 South-East season continued last weekend when it travelled to the Latrobe Valley to defeat Morwell Pegasus 4-2. Mornington confirmed the appointment of Dale White as Adam Jamieson’s replacement last Friday and within two minutes Sammy Orritt put the visitors ahead with a free header following a long throw by Curtis Hutson and a flick on by Sam Scott. Hutson capped a fine interpassing move by slotting the ball past advancing Morwell keeper Senad Ahmetovic in the 15th minute to make it 2-0. The home side blew a great chance to get back into the contest by missing a penalty in the 35th minute but two goals inside five minutes in the second half had Mornington staring down the barrel. A deflected long-range strike by Scott in the 73rd minute made it 3-2 and Morwell was caught on the break in the 86th minute when Keegan Ziada drew a defender and Orritt took one touch before smashing a firm shot into the top corner.

Etheridge to return from England next week and plans to add another striker to the senior squad. The club’s FFA Cup run ended with a 2-0 loss to NPL outfit Moreland Zebras last week. Frankston Pines’ defensive frailty was ruthlessly exposed by Berwick City in their State 2 South-East fixture at Monterey Reserve last weekend. David Di Iorio had a free header for the opener in the 11th minute, Kurt Wagner-Goldsworthy let Nathan Credlin nip in front of him for another free header in the 22nd minute, a Graham Hill blunder gifted Orlando Mejias with the third in the 29th minute and a superb Chris L’Enclume through ball two minutes later allowed Jarod Blackbourn to make it 4-0. Pines gave a better account of itself in the second stanza when the contest was all over and its consolation goal

came from hard-working striker Mitch Lander after Berwick keeper Christian Morales had parried Ioasa Saemo’s shot. Peninsula Strikers remain on the bottom of the State 2 South-East table after losing 2-1 at home to North Caulfield on Sunday. Although Strikers had the better of the first half they still had to rely on a superb double save from goalkeeper Ash Kupre in the 25th minute. Ryan Wilson should have given Strikers the lead not long after but he mistimed his header at the near post following Nathan Smith’s corner. North Caulfield took the lead in the 55th minute through a headed own goal from Steve McLelland but when Femi Orenuga was brought down by North Caulfield keeper Daniel Shandler in the 68th minute Ryan Thompson converted from the spot to make

it 1-1. The winner came in the 80th minute when substitute Ariel Ritz sent his free kick from the left sailing into the top far corner. Skye United continued its push up the State 3 South-East ladder after a nail-biting victory over fellow promotion candidate Collingwood in a seven-goal thriller at Kevin Bartlett Reserve on Friday night. Skye took the lead when Caleb Nicholes finished well following a neat turn after a Jason Nowakowski cross in the 20th minute. However the hosts were level 10 minutes later after a fine interpassing move finished by a Pat Makris drive from outside the area. Three excellent saves from Skye keeper Jonathan Crook kept Collingwood at bay and in the 43rd minute Mohamad Elhassan broke onto a Mitch Blake through ball to make it 2-1 at the break. When Nicholes turned provider in the 70th minute to set up Blake for a tap-in the points looked safe for Skye but no-one could have anticipated the frenzied final five minutes. A looping header from Makris in the 86th minute gave the hosts a lifeline and a 90th minute equaliser from Federico Bono had the Skye faithful holding their heads in their hands. But seconds after the restart Marcus Collier pushed the ball forward and Daniel Attard’s through ball saw Nicholes felled in the area. Referee Mike Zha pointed to the spot and Nicholes stepped up to snatch a crucial 4-3 win with the last kick of the contest. Seaford United stayed in the relegation zone after losing 5-2 at home to promotion candidate Monbulk Rangers last weekend. Harry McCartney reports that the visitors took the lead in the 9th minute when Geordie Scott converted from the spot after Arash Sadeghi had been brought down inside the area. A long ball in the 35th minute was flicked on for Scott to make it 2-0 and almost from the restart Cameron Poynter made it 3-0. In the 41st minute Seaford’s Matty Schwellinger went past two opponents and laid the ball off to Dylan Waugh who hammered it into the top left corner to make it 3-1. It was game on in the 76th minute after Waugh was brought down on the edge of the box and a superb free-kick from Matt Morris-Thomas made it 3-2. Seaford pushed for the equaliser and was twice caught out on the break late



in the game. Chris Wynne made it 4-2 in the 86th minute and Scott completed his hat-trick in the final minute of normal time. Baxter had to settle for a point at Sillitoe Reserve on Saturday in its State 4 South clash with Sandringham which finished 0-0. Baxter came closest to scoring from an Owen Kilner header in the 11th minute which struck the crossbar, a Jake Kidder shot straight at Sandy keeper Gabe Zafrin in the 18th minute and a fierce strike from substitute Liam Kilner in the 80th minute which forced a superb save from Zafrin. Sandy’s best first-half chances fell to Dan Meltser but Baxter keeper James Foster and defender Tim Lee saved the day. In the 82nd minute a short passback from Baxter’s Heath Goss was intercepted by Sandy’s Chris Pratt but Foster saved his defender’s blushes with a magnificent save. Player-coach Dave Greening returned from his honeymoon in New Zealand to spearhead Somerville Eagles to a 2-0 away win over Bunyip District on Saturday. It was a club record third straight victory and Greening’s first-half goals leave the Eagles equal top of State 5 South. In NPLW news Southern United lost 9-0 to Calder United at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Goals from Eden McKeown and Kayla McLeod gave Southern’s under-12s a win in a hard-fought contest against Calder while the under-14s increased their lead at the top of the table with a 3-2 win in a clash that brought together last year’s Grand Finalists. A Candy Kilderry double and an Alessandra Davis goal gave Southern all three points. Southern’s under-16s drew 0-0 while the under 19s lost 9-0. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Melbourne City (Lawton Park), Mornington v Warragul Utd (Dallas Brooks Park), Doveton v Peninsula Strikers (Waratah Reserve), Skye Utd v Bayside Argonauts (Skye Recreation Reserve), Boroondara-Carey Eagles v Seaford Utd (Wilcox Field, Carey Sports Complex), Baxter v Harrisfield Hurricanes (Baxter Park), Endeavour Hills Fire v Somerville Eagles (Power Reserve).

Sharks women strike five in championships BASKETBALL

SOUTHERN Peninsula Sharks state championship women’s side continue to show that they deserve their spot in the highest division as they slotted their fifth victory for their season on the road against McKinnon Cougars in round seven of the Big V. The Sharks’ young squad shot at a 47 per cent clip to defeat the Cougars (5882) away from home, with Jaz Shelley (26 pts) and Peyton Little (23 pts) again delivering solid performances. While the Cougars took a six point lead out of the first break, the Sharks quickly turned the game around in the second quarter to finish the half up by nine points. The Sharks continued to pull away throughout the second half and finished the match with a 24-point victory, cementing their fourth spot on the ladder. The Sharks’ division two men’s side weren’t as fortunate when they played away against Mildura Heat at the “Hothouse”, with one of their main men Colin Voss out for the next couple of weeks. The Sharks were competitive at the start of the game but eventually the Heat wore them down in the second and third quarters to walk away with a 21-point victory (89-68). Men’s Sharks head coach Lucas Allen said the travel can always be a complication but without a couple of main players, it made it even harder. “We were pretty competitive for 30 to 40 minutes of the game but with Colin Voss and Dave Smith unavailable it made it tough for us,” he said. “Smith returns this week which will add some extra depth to the side and

playing at home will make a big difference with the energy and momentum that the crowd provides.” Allen was also full of praise for their younger players that continue to take the step up in their senior men’s and women’s sides. “We don’t play them just for the sake of playing them,” he said. “We’re managing to give them these opportunities but they’re proven and more than capable to compete at this higher level. “We’re trying to build something sustainable with a portion of the side being younger players, a portion of the side being older and wiser and then some that are in their prime so that we can continue to be competitive.” In division one of the men’s league, Chelsea Gulls had a comprehensive victory over Collingwood on Saturday 5 May after a commanding 56-29 second half push. While the All Stars hit the board early, the Gulls hit back in the second half with Brasser (22 pts), Standerfer (18 pts, 11 rbs, 11 ast), Frost (17pts) and Tyrrell (14 pts) contributing significantly to a 25-point victory (6489). The Gulls tried to back it up on the Sunday against Shepparton but after a tough battle and a 10-point final quarter from Matt Bartlett (16 pts), it was the Gators (69-75) who came out on top. Brasser (23 pts) and Standerfer (20 pts) again put in solid performances. The third-placed Gulls women’s side were the victors in a low scoring contest against Western Port (46-55) as the Steelers remain winless after the seventh round. The Steelers got going late, but after scoring single figures in the first two quarters, it wasn’t enough to make up the ground.

Second win: Corey Standferer helped Chelsea Gulls secure a 25-point victory with a strong second half. Picture: Supplied

Saints’ youngsters step up to Championship NETBALL

SOUTHERN Saints under-19s and division one players took the step up to make their VNL Championship debut in round three as the side suffered further injuries to their already depleting line-up. The Saints, who are already low on numbers, suffered another three injuries on Wednesday night against league leaders Melbourne University. It was always going to be a task for the inexperienced side to compete with the Lightning and inevitably they ran away with a 23-point victory over the Saints (55-32). But Southern Saints head coach Jade Heinrich wasn’t all too fazed by the performance as she said, “it was always going to pretty tough for 18 and 19-year-olds to come up to this level”. “At the end of the day, you look at the game and it wasn’t all that bad,” she said. “Across the board they (Melbourne University) have some really skilful players but they (division one and under-19s players) got out there and gave it a good crack. “Mel Webster came up from the under-19s and played most of the game in the centre, and she held her own and did some really good things out there. “While some aren’t quite ready yet, we are going to need those players to try and step up and we are going to need to do everything we can to get them feeling comfortable and get them to know their new team mates as quickly as possible.” Southern Saints’ division one side also fell to Melbourne University (52-36) but the under19s dug to deep for a one-goal victory (35-36). Heinrich said it was a tough game for the Saints, but they did very well to hang on in the end. “They were up for most of the game, but Melbourne Uni were coming very hard, so it showed a lot of character for them to hold on for the win,” she said. Peninsula Waves faced the Ariels in round three and copped narrow losses in their Championship (41-42) and division one (47-49) matches, going down by one and two goals

respectively. The Waves and Ariels produced a hot contest across all four quarters where the score was level for a large portion of both matches but eventually both of the Ariels team’s managed to hold their leads and walk away with the wins. The Waves sought revenge in the under-19s and the younger side secured their second win of the season with a 17-goal victory over the Ariels (55-38). The Waves will face third-placed Geelong Cougars next Wednesday at 7:00pm while the Southern Saints will come up against Hawks Netball at 9.40pm.
