Submissions open on golf course future Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Save Kingswood group will make a submission to the newly formed Golf Course Redevelopment Standing Advisory Committee in a bid to shape the future of land at Dingley Village’s Peninsula Kingswood golf course. The 54-hectare Kingswood site was purchased for $125 million in 2014, and ASRP1 took possession of the land on 31 January. The developer’s plan to subdivide the land and build a little under 800 residential dwellings was knocked back by Kingston Council in October last year when they unanimously voted to abandon the planning scheme amendment after over 8000 public submissions were made. The final say ultimately comes down to the planning minister. A golf course redevelopment standing advisory committee was appointed last month to “review and provide the minister for planning advice on draft planning guidelines for golf course redevelopment and advise on proposals for redevelopment of golf course land within the urban growth boundary of metropolitan Melbourne.” Public submissions to the committee opened on 2 September, and will close at 5pm on 30 September. The committee will then consider those submissions and can choose to host public workshops, which will likely take place on the week beginning 21 October. The committee must make a submission of its report to the planning minister no later than 40 days from the collection of submissions. A public briefing was held on 12 September for the Department of En-

vironment, Land, Water and Planning to present an overview of their draft planning guidelines for golf course redevelopment. On 4 September, the Save Kingswood group announced via their Facebook page that they had “agreed to provide a submission to the newly formed golf planning and advisory committee.” “This will be based on all the issues Dingley Village and the broader community identified during the proposed rezoning by Australian Super/ISPT. Specifically that we believe rezoning is of no net benefit to our community and our determination to maintain Kingston Council’s golf course policy which will keep Kingswood open space,” the announcement read. A statement on the Kingswood Dingley Village website read “the owner and developer of the 53-hectare vacant site in the heart of Dingley Village welcomes the minister of planning’s announcement to establish the golf course redevelopment standing advisory committee.” “Site owner AustralianSuper and development manager ISPT understand the purpose of the committee is to review draft planning guidelines for golf course redevelopment and make recommendations on how the guidelines could be operationalised in the Victorian planning system. “The minister’s recent announcement is a welcomed opportunity to prepare a refreshed amendment proposal to develop the site, working closely with the community and addressing requirements of the planning guidelines.” Submissions can be made and more information is available at engage.vic. gov.au/golf-course-redevelopmentstanding-advisory-committee

Life saving building set for $12 million redevelopment COMMUNITY consultation has closed in response to a new facility for the Mentone Lifesaving Club. The proposed new facility is expected to cost around $12 million. It is a joint project between Kingston Council and the state government. A drop in information session was held on 31 August to display the plans to the community. Concept design options were shown off on the day.

The Your Kingston Your Say website states that “the new state of the art facility will be built to ensure the club can continue to provide this vital community service to the tens of thousands of visitors who visit Mentone beach each summer. Council is working closely with the Mentone Lifesaving Club on the redevelopment. The initial concept plans have been developed to align with the Lifesaving Facility of

the future development guideline.” More information at yourkingstonyoursay.com.au/mentonelsc

Newstart raise could help pay for housing Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A DECLINE in affordable housing in Victoria is making it harder for people to make ends meet. The Peninsula Community Legal Centre says that “a decade ago, 30 per cent of new lettings in Melbourne were considered affordable, today its only 7.6 per cent.” The centre, which provides free legal services to people in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula, says that a rise in the Newstart rate could make things easier for people struggling to pay for housing. “With the Victorian housing crisis centered on the availability of affordable housing, the urgency to raise the rate of Newstart is becoming pressing. We are seeing the impact of the crisis with 75 per cent of PCLC’s clients on no to low income. Low income being defined as living on less than $26,000 per annum,” they said. “The rate of Newstart has not risen in real terms for more than two decades, while the cost of living in Australia has increased substantially during this time. Because of the growing gap between those that can afford to live and those that can’t, we are seeing an inevitable increase in the homelessness rate. “The conditions in a rooming house

can be very substandard with problems relating to security and general comfort being very common. While the government argues that Newstart is not intended to be a payment you live on, it does not help if the payment is so low it is impossible to find living arrangements that support you to get yourself back to work.” The Newstart basic rate is $555 per fortnight. Calls to raise to rate have so far fallen on deaf ears, with the federal government failing to commit to an increase. A controversial proposed trial to drug test welfare recipients has also been discussed recently. The PCLC provides a rooming house outreach program to help with “building community relationships with service providers in the health, housing, material aid and counselling sectors.” The program covers 17 local government areas and over 800 rooming houses in Victoria’s south-east. PCLC CEO Jackie Gallloway said “we will continue to advocate for the rights of rooming house residents through our rooming house outreach program. In the future, we hope these vulnerable people will be able to afford a home environment that enables them to have the opportunity to escape the entrapment of poverty.” For more information about PCLC’s free legal services, call 9783 3600 or visit pclc.org.au.

Data helps scientists track fish VOLUNTEER fishers working as citizen scientists to tag, release and report the capture of King George whiting in Port Phillip and Western Port bays is helping improve our knowledge of their behaviour. The fishers, working on a threeyear Monash University research project funded by recreational fishing licence fees, are helping track the fish’s movement patterns. “We know whiting enter our bays when they’re only a few months old and leave again at about four years of age to mature and begin spawn-

ing offshore,” Victorian Fisheries Authority CEO Travis Dowling said. “What we don’t know is how juveniles move within and between our bays up until they depart.” Fishers have tagged nearly 700 whiting, the biggest 48cm, with 60 per cent in Port Phillip at Queenscliff, Geelong, St Leonards and Clifton Springs, and 40 per cent in Western Port at Somers, Tortoise Head and Middle Spit. Mr Dowling said 39 tagged whiting had been recaptured so far and none had moved between bays or

offshore – yet. “In Western Port, one tagged whiting moved 20km from Somers to Dickies Bay, at San Remo, over 11 months, growing 5cm from 35 to 40cm,” Mr Dowling said. “Another showed the greatest short-term movement recorded so far in the study, swimming from Somers to Middle Spit in a bit over three weeks – that’s about 24km! “In Port Phillip, one tagged whiting was recaptured near Queenscliff by the same angler who’d tagged it 45 minutes after it had been

released.” Mr Dowling said the longest period between tagging and recapture was 16 months. The fish had grown 11cm – from 33 to 44 cm. Like most recaptured fish, this whiting was caught close to where it was tagged. “As fish get older and start to move out onto the coast, more recaptures from further afield are expected.” Mr Dowling said it was hoped the project would reveal more secrets this summer. He said much of the credit could be attributed to just four keen fishers who have tagged and

released 83 per cent of the whiting in the study. “It’s great to see passionate fishers so involved in local research, on a species they really care about.” Fishers catching a King George whiting carrying a yellow tag should report it to whitingtag@gmail.com or call 5258 3686. They should record the tag number, fish length, date and location of capture, and release the fish so it can further contribute to the project’s database.

Moorabbin memorial for St Kilda legend

Awards for alumni FOUR former Kilbreda College students have been inducted into the past pupils of distinction program. The Mentone school celebrated the achievements of four of their alumni, Maggie Fitzgibbon OAM, Laura John, Dr Bridie Kean, and Katrina Leason. Ms Fitzgibbon found success as an actor and performer. Ms John is a lawyer who was a United Nations youth ambassador and Kingston youth of the year award winner. Dr Kean is a

paralympian who found success as a wheelchair basketball player and canoeist. Ms Leason has worked on inclusion programs for women in Australian rules football. Dr Kean said in her speech that “it’s quite surreal to be standing here in this hall, receiving this award, because I remember so clearly rolling around this very hall in my wheelchair as a year 8 student. That was the year I started playing wheelchair basketball, and it changed my life.”

THE funeral of St Kilda Football Club legend Danny Frawley will be broadcast on big screens for supporters to watch at the club’s Moorabbin headquarters. Frawley died in a single vehicle car crash on 9 September, aged 56. Supporters have been invited to the club’s training base to watch his private funeral service on Wednesday, 18 September. After the conclusion of the service, Frawley’s hearse will come to the ground for supporters to pay their respects. St Kilda’s Moorabbin headquarters is at 3 Linton Street, Moorabbin. The coverage of Frawley’s funeral starts at 3pm. St Kilda’s homebase has been flooded with flowers and tributes to the former captain of the club, known affectionately as “Spud”. His family has requested that donations be made to Beyond Blue in lieu of flowers and cards. Beyond Blue can be contacted on 1300 22 4636. Lifeline can be contacted on 13 11 14.

Library events this week THE Mentone Public Library has a packed schedule of events this week. The monthly Page Turners writing workshop will be held on 18 September from 10.30am.

Card thief wanted

Feeling low

POLICE are working to identify a thief who used a stolen credit card to make more than $3000 in purchases. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit detectives were told a card was stolen from a car in Carrum Downs between 8 August and 9 August. The card was later used in the early hours of August in Seaford, Patterson Lakes, Dandenong, Dingley, and Mentone. The thief used the card for more than 30 transactions. An image of a man police “believe may be able to assist with their enquiries” has been released. Anyone who recognises the man is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

POLICE issued a defect notice to a driver travelling on the Frankston Freeway, 12 September. The 21-year-old man was pulled over in Carrum Downs, and told his car did not meet the 100mm ground height requirement. Police also pointed out defects with the exhaust and the steering wheel. The man received a $413 fine for driving an unroadworthy vehicle.

at Dandenong South, and at around 186kmph heading south on Eastlink. Somerville Highway patrol members were joined by the police air wing in pursuit of the driver. Police pulled the woman over at Skye Road, Frankston, and drug tested her. The 36-year-old Frankston resident returned a positive preliminary oral fluid test for methylamphetamine and cannabis. Sergeant Julie-Ann Newman said that the woman “told police she wanted to get home to her kids”. She is expected to be charged on summons with drug driving, exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h, and driving in a manner dangerous. Her car was impounded for a month.

Burglaries investigated A SERIES of burglaries in Moorabbin are being investigated by the Kingston Crime Investigation Unit. The first took place on 19 August on South Road. A second burglary occurred on 23 August on Ebden Street, and a third on 29 August on Keys Road. Police believe the same offender is responsible for the separate burglaries. It is believed that the offender broke into businesses and stole items between 2am and 4am. An image (below) of a man police wish to speak to have been released. Any information to Crime Stoppers.

Sustainability awards for groups

Shire to drown in fees, costs

THREE local groups have been awarded for their efforts towards environmental sustainability. Natured Kids, the Frankston Beach Association, and the Frankston Regional Recycling and Recovery Centre were recognised at the 2019 Keep Victoria Beautiful Sustainable Cities Awards on 6 September. Narelle Debenham from Natured Kids was awarded the 2019 Dame Phyllis Frost Award in the community section for running environmental education programs. She said she was “delighted her work via Natured Kids has been recognised as a program impacting social, cultural and environmental change.” “Children learn so much about their natural world by being in it,” she said. “I praise those in our community who share their skills and knowledge with younger emerging environmental advocates as I do believe intergenerational connections have had significant impact on teaching our future generations how to care for this beautiful country, the land, fresh water and the sea over many millennia. “We all have a continuing responsibility to care for our country, the youth I work with each week give me great faith in and hope for a promising future. It is critical we continue to invest our time in mentoring those who follow us.”

Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council is bracing for a “substantial administrative and enforcement obligation” when tough state government pool and spa regulations come into force early next year. The shire estimates it has about 10 per cent of the state’s private swimming pools and spas – the most of any local government area. About 17,000 are “known” to exist although the actual number could be as high as 25,000 – or one-in-four properties. The dates they were built are uncertain for all but 18 per cent – or 3040 – of the known 17,000. Officers estimate that up to 80 per cent of these pools and spas will be non-compliant under the new rules. These statistics are set to trigger a workload avalanche that the shire admits it is ill-equipped to handle. And it will be costly: The mayor Cr David Gill said the fees the council was obliged to charge would not equal the cost of enforcing the state’s new rules. “It will cost the shire – the ratepayers – up to $100 for every registration for which we will be reimbursed $57,” he said. “We estimate that the whole process, including administration costs, time spent chasing fees and fines, employing inspectors, and tracking down undeclared pools and spas, will cost $2$3 million in the first few years. “After that this figure will come down.” Statutory building manager David Kotsiakos reported to last week’s council meeting that the new rules

aimed to reduce drownings among young children by improving safety barriers. He said since 2000 there had been 27 fatalities and for every fatality 15 “near misses” often causing brain injury. Councils across the state will be required to establish and maintain pool and spa registers when the act comes into force on 1 December 2019. Existing owners must pay a $37 one-off registration fee by 14 April 2020. This will show the build date of the pool or spa (a difficult ask for 82 per cent of pools/spas on the peninsula), the standard of safety barriers, and the date the owner must provide the first Certificate of Compliance. Failing to register a pool or spa carries a fine of $330.44. Mandatory inspections will be carried out every three years. The owner must engage a registered officer (building surveyor, building inspector or private ‘inspector’) to ensure safety barriers are effective, working correctly and comply with standards. The owner then must lodge the certificate of compliance with the shire within 30 days for a fee of $20. Owners found to have non-compliant safety barriers can take 20 days to rectify problems or they will be issued with non-compliance certificates costing $385. The shire will pursue this amount. Owners can apply for time extensions if compliance work takes longer than expected. Cr Gill said he regretted that the shire would be forced to rely on noncompliance fees to help defray costs. “It’s not a position we like being in,” he said. “But in the initial stages that is the reality.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Motion to limit charge for football match entry defeated Compiled by Cameron McCullough Cr Oates said he noticed in the “Standard” that his action to prevent the Football Association charging 1s instead of 6d and 1d tax to football matches had been resented in some quarters. The Association, without notice, had increased the charge, and quite a lot of people resented their action, and although he had taken steps to have it blocked in the match between Frankston and Somerville, he had not been successful. He considered 6d a sufficient charge, and he moved the Association be informed that the maximum charge allowed would be 6d and 1d tax in forthcoming matches held in the Council’s parks. Cr Mason seconded. Cr Griffeth thought it would have been impossible to give change to the large crowd at the recent match. He considered 1s a reasonable price for semi-finals and finals, particularly as the clubs benefited. The players were not paid, and the association officers did not benefit. Any balance at the end of the season was divided amongst the clubs. He believed two Frankston men forced their way through the gate, refusing to pay. Cr Oates – It was a wonder they did not all do so. Cr Griffeth said it was the intention of the association, if funds permitted, to insure players against accident. Surely this should be encouraged ? Cr Oates – The people who are being penalised are the people who have stood to their clubs all through. Cr Griffeth – The association may

remove their matches to another shire. Cr Oates – That is a threat. Cr Murray thought it inadvisable at this late hour to interfere. He thought the association should have given the public notice before increasing the price. Cr Oates said it would be the people of this shire who were penalized. Balnarring and Dromana were out and Mornington had arranged a match on their own ground for the Saturday next, to keep their people away from Somerville, so the public of Frankston and Hastings Shire would have to pay. Cr Howell considered that the Council should have been approached by the Association before the price was altered. They were dealing with reserves held in trust for the public. Cr Longmuir thought 1s had been charged previously. Cr Oates did not think so. The Council had authority to collect 10 per cent but had never done so. Cr Griffeth said the footballers had done most to improve the Somerville park. Cr Latham thought a shilling a fair charge. Cr Unthank said notice of increase should have been given, but 1s, was a fair charge. President – I think so too. The motion was lost – the voting being equal. For – Crs Oates, Mason, Hoban, Howell, Armstrong and Wells. Against – Crs Turner, Unthank, Longmuir, Latham, Murray and Griffeth. *** OWING to Thursday being Show Day, the “Wattle” club will hold their usual

fortnightly euchre party and dance on Wednesday 24th September. *** THE third term of Mrs Dial’s private school, Frankston, has commenced at St. Paul’s school room and intending pupils should enroll with the principal at once. *** IT is expected by the Water Commission that a supply will be carried through to Flinders naval base within a few weeks. Arrangements have been made to connect the various townships en route, and it will be possible at an early date to link up the system with Frankston. Other townships will receive supplies shortly afterwards. *** APPLICATIONS for Peace Loan Bonds will be received up to September 23rd. The interest 5 per cent is payable half yearly in June and December, and is not liable to State Income Tax. Attached to each bond are coupons for the interest – one for each half year – and as those become due they can be cashed free of charge at any Bank or Money Order Post Office. *** ANOTHER Early Train Proposal – Many members of the Commercial Travellers’ Association, of Victoria are interesting themselves in trying to secure a Monday Morning Train from Frankston to connect with all early morning country trains. It is presumed that if this train is secured quite a number of commercial men will reside permanently in Frankston. ***

A GRAND cornucopia will be held in the Frankston State School and grounds on Friday, 10th October. The proceeds are to be devoted to the purchase of a piano for the school. During the years of war the children devoted their energies to raising funds for patriotic causes, and as this is their first effort for their school the committee expect to score a big success. *** THE “Frankston Cup” – (Racing men are advised to keep cool this is not a racing trophy.) In connection with the boxing tournament in Melbourne for returned soldiers arranged by the State Commandant, Brigadier General Brand, and organised by Major Conder, we notice that Mr J. B.

The present lessee is Mrs H. Garrood and her lease does not expire till about the middle of next year. *** MR D. H. Allen during a recent tour of the Peninsula proved a keen and critical observer. His impressions formed regarding our fruit growing areas were highly favorable, and coming from such a practical source his views carry more than ordinary weight. Mr Allen, who is the travelling representative of Mitchell and Co. Pty. Ltd., the well known manufacturers of farming and orcharding implements, has had 23 years experience as an orchardist and at present owns “Yaroba” orchard, Croydon, but he admits that he wants to see nothing better than the orchards of Somerville and surrounding districts. It is the intention of Mr Allen’s firm to arrange exhibitions in the various centres featuring their orchard plows, spring tooth barrows and other implements. Mr H. Gomm of Somerville has been appointed the local representative for the Peninsula, and Mr R. E. Peebles, is the firms sub agent for Frankston. When the date for holding the exhibition has been arranged ample notice will be given so that all interested may have an opportunity of attending. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 September 1919

Tigers take out the top prize DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA have made history by winning the MPNFL Division One and Division Two premierships in consecutive years. The Tigers travelled to Frankston Park on Sunday to take on powerhouse club Sorrento in a much anticipated Grand Final showdown. Dromana came into the clash looking to go back to back after their second division triumph last year, and

Sorrento were looking for retribution after falling just short in last year’s big dance. Both sides had to battle through tough conditions throughout the afternoon. Dromana came out narrow leaders after a tense first quarter, and took a one point lead into the second term. The game opened up a little more after a low scoring opening quarter, as both sides added three goals each to their tally before half time. At the main break Dromana still held onto

their one point lead. The third quarter is often dubbed the premiership quarter, and Dromana were determined to make the most of it. A three goals to zero third term put the Tigers in the box seat. They went into the last quarter with a 15 point lead over Sorrento. Dromana could only add one more goal to their tally before the final siren, but they had done enough to get the win. It was a tense and hard fought battle, but Dromana managed to overcome the Sharks to claim the

win 6.9 (45) to 8.4 (52). Scenes of jubilation followed as the Tigers celebrated back to back premiership wins, this time over a rival team. Will Guerts was one of Dromana’s best, while three goals from Ben Holmes also helped them get the win. Sam Fowler scored two goals and was also impressive. On a tough day for Sorrento, Chad Harris was their best. In the Division One reserves, Mt Eliza claimed another Grand Final

win. The Redlegs took on Frankston YCW on Sunday, and started on the right foot with a four goals to zero first term. The Redlegs looked good from the outset, and eventually claimed the premiership with a 10.7 (67) to 6.5 (41) win. The victory secured the Redlegs their sixth consecutive reserves premiership. Frankston YCW fared better in the under-19s Grand Final, securing an 8.5 (53) to 6.7 (43) win.

Super Southern in Grand Final SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United’s remarkable youngsters stunned odds-on favourite and league champion South Melbourne at Lakeside Stadium on Saturday to claim a place in this weekend’s under-16 NPLW Grand Final. Southern finished the league season 27 points behind South Melbourne who had a superior goal difference of 57. But this Southern group has been one of the NPLW’s success stories having won the title and the Grand Final in 2017 at under-13 level and doubling up on championship success last year but losing 2-1 to Calder United in the under-14 showpiece event. On Saturday South Melbourne went ahead in the 55th minute when Georgia Kandilas was left free at the back post and headed home. But the lead only lasted two minutes. Southern captain Sage Kirby had her shirt pulled inside the area and leading scorer Rhys McKenna converted from the spot. The deadlock couldn’t be broken at the end of normal time and 10 minutes each way of extra time so penalties decided the winner of this cut-throat semi-final. And Southern gave a flawless display converting four times through McKenna, Olivia Cullen, Indy Scarr and Taylah Hennekam while Southern keeper Alex Jones saved twice to send the local side into this weekend’s Grand Final against Bulleen. Southern has an ace up its sleeve in head coach and former Matilda Deb Nichols who along with current under-14s coach Emma Bracken has nurtured these talented young players and helped them develop into one of Victoria’s best underage sides. An emotional Nicholls addressed her squad after the game: “Today is a day you will never forget. You will replay this day when you, in the future, are standing in my shoes in front of a team of young chargers. “This is why I have stayed in this game for 43 years, for days like today. “This game can break your heart but can also take you to the most wonderful places. “It’s been one hell of a week for this club but you just took it to another level. “So proud. Looking forward to an-

other Grand Final. We fear no one.” Things are just as exciting off the field and Southern made a raft of coaching announcements last week with Olivia Groves, Bracken, Nichols and Liam Drury all being re-appointed to their roles with the under-12s, under-14s, under-16s and reserves squads respectively. The club also announced that Melissa Maizels had been retained as senior player-coach and that Southern and Casey council have struck an agreement that will see the club based at the elite soccer facility at Casey Fields. It was the final step in Southern cutting itself free from a sometimes fraught relationship with Frankston council and many at the club are delighted at the switch of allegiances. In NPL2 news Jamie Skelly has been retained as Scott Miller’s assistant at Langwarrin. The former Casey Comets and Peninsula Strikers head coach was at the centre of a strong rumour circulating last week linking him with another local club but quickly dismissed any suggestion of a move. “I’ll be at Langy again next season and I’m really looking forward to it,” Skelly said. “My first choice always was to stay here.” Langy legend Gus Macleod was last week named as the club’s new head of coaching for its community junior teams.

Mark Cassar is Langy’s new NPL technical director replacing the highly successful Stephen Fisher who was tipped to be joining Frankston Pines but Bentleigh Greens and Doveton have been in touch and are keen to have him involved. Doug Hodgson has left Langwarrin and the club has advertised its NPL under-16 and under-18 coaching positions. In State 1 news Mornington has confirmed a number of appointments recently with Adam Jamieson re-appointed as senior coach along with assistant Nathan Peel. Craig Davidson is technical director of Mornington’s NPL juniors, Adam Austin is head of coaching for community junior teams and Andrew Martin is head of coaching for the women’s program. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles’ finals campaign ended last weekend when it went down 2-1 to Waverley Wanderers at Comets Stadium. Waverley left winger Panagiotis Tsoupeis was the most influential player on the pitch and he gave Somerville right back Callum Richardson a torrid time throughout. The most colourful person off the pitch was Waverley assistant coach Gabby Vlahos who insisted on reminding referee George Iliopoulos that there was a reason he was refereeing at State 5 level. The fact that Waverley was a State 5 team and Vlahos was a State

5 assistant appeared to be of little concern and an agitated Vlahos followed Iliopoulos to the referees’ room at half-time arguing over a decision taken in the first half. At one stage after the interval Iliopoulos stopped play to insist on a child leaving the Waverley technical area and was given an explanation that there was no-one to look after the youngster. This theatrical parry and thrust came to an abrupt end during the second stanza when Iliopoulos could take no more and he sent off Vlahos forcing him to leave the arena and become one of the 64 spectators on the other side of the fence. Meanwhile there was a match going on. In the 49th minute Somerville lined up to defend a Tsoupeis corner without anyone on the near post. That forced Somerville keeper Francis Beck into diving down low and late and failing to stop the ball slipping under his grasp and into goal for the opener. In the 62nd minute Somerville player-coach Dave Greening neatly turned inside an opponent on the right and broke forward then crossed to the far post where strike partner Mark Pagliarulo’s first-time sidefoot volley made it 1-1. But Tsoupeis wasn’t done with yet. In the 72nd minute he looked set to curl in a free-kick instead squaring the ball to former Skye striker Nick

Theodore and his drive from outside the area rocketed into the far corner giving Beck no chance. Somerville pushed central midfielder Daniel Hodge forward late in the contest but the damage had been done. Meanwhile Aspendale Stingrays and Rosebud signed off on the 2019 State 5 season with a remarkable 12goal catch-up contest at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex last Wednesday night. What was a whirlwind start for the Stingrays turned into an arm wrestle in which they eventually prevailed 8-4. Aspendale led through 16-year-old Nathan Barnett whose pace worried Rosebud early and the teenager scored the first two goals inside four minutes. When Kieran Hughes made it 3-0 in the 25th minute a comfortable night seemed assured. Right on half-time the first of a Cory Osorio double made it 3-1. An eight-goal second half centred on a quickfire hat-trick from substitute Anthony Segavac whose goal blitz was achieved in just nine minutes ending any hopes the visitors had of completing a comeback. It was an excellent season finale for the Stingrays who boast the youngest side in the competition. The game also marked the 250th appearance for the club of Aspendale’s Noah Berends who is just 18 years old. Aspendale’s best were Hughes, Peter Dimopoulos and Kenan Nuhanovic. In other news Monterey Reserve will host Go Sevens during the offseason. The program is a Football Victoria initiative at venues across the state and while a typical GO Sevens competition runs for seven weeks each location can also vary the competition length. GO Football locations offer well organised seven-a-side matches for players and teams from ages 10 upwards and for all levels of experience with mixed, female, and male divisions.
