Electorate boundaries shift Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au THE Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has approved boundary changes across three south-east region electorates — Isaacs, Dunkley and Flinders — as part of a wider redistribution of electorate boundaries to create a new

electorate called Foster northwest of Melbourne. Population demographics changes made the AEC look at electorate changes across Victoria to better represent voters. In Isaacs, federal Labor MP Mark Dreyfus said he is “sorry that from the next election I will no longer represent residents of Carrum Downs, Sandhurst,

Skye, Noble Park and the parts of Keysborough north of Cheltenham Road”. “I can assure these residents that I will continue to represent them right up until election day,” he said. Isaacs gains Cheltenham, Dingley Village, Heatherton, Highett and Moorabbin within its northern boundaries. Mr Dreyfus has a 3.9 per cent margin in Isaacs.

Liberal Dunkley MP Chris Crewther faces an uphill battle to save his seat at the next federal election after the changes to the electorate boundary, losing Mornington and the northern part of Baxter to the seat of Flinders held by fellow Liberal MP Greg Hunt. Carrum Downs, Sandhurst and Skye move from Isaacs held by Mr Dreyfus to Dunkley.

Based on votes at the 2016 federal election, Dunkley now flips from having a 1.4 per cent narrow Liberal majority to being a nominal 1.3 per cent Labor seat. Mr Crewther campaigned against the Dunkley electorate changes, urging community groups to lobby the AEC to maintain the status quo. Continued Page 3

‘Houdini hounds’ may avoid pounds

Boundaries on the move for election Continued from Page 1 “I’m pleased that the Australian Electorate Commission has just decided to bring the whole of Carrum Downs, Skye and Sandhurst into my electorate,” Mr Crewther said. “I welcome residents in these suburbs to Dunkley.” He said he is “sad” at losing both Mornington and Baxter “from my electorate”. The Dunkley MP said residents in Carrum Downs, Skye and Sandhurst “want change”. “Many locals have told me how they’ve felt neglected after 22 years of Labor in charge of their area, with 11 years of having Mark Dreyfus as their local Member for Isaacs, who not only lives out of his electorate in Malvern, but also has not knocked on most of the doors I’ve already knocked on, and hasn’t delivered on vital local infrastructure upgrades like resolving road congestion issues.” Mr Hunt, federal Health Minister, has also lost a chunk of the Flinders electorate in the redistribution, despite gaining Mornington and all of Baxter, but still has a safe Liberal majority in the new seat. Phillip Island and Bass Coast suburbs previously in the Flinders electorate will become part of the seat of Monash. The next federal election will be held by 18 May next year at the latest if not called by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull before that date.

All change: A redistribution of electorate boundaries will come into force at the next federal election when voters head to polls.

DOGS who perform not so great escapes as far as owners are concerned may avoid going to the pound in future if suggested changes to the way Kingston Council deals with lost pets go ahead. Councillors at last month’s public council meeting voted for council officers to investigate minimising the chances of lost pooches facing a stay at a pound if a dog is registered and microchipped with council. Cr Georgina Oxley suggested officers consider a “first strike” policy to have dogs returned straight back to owners. “I think nobody wants their dogs to go wandering the streets day or night by themselves,” she said. “Most of the time for people, pets are part of the family and when they do go missing it is devastating both for the pet and the human a lot of the time. “If they do end up at the pound it’s a long, long process to get your dog back. I wouldn’t want any family to be going through that. “So I think that it’s important if they do go missing, we’re able to return them as soon as possible.” Cr Rosemary West agreed with Cr Oxley’s declaration that dogs “can be

escape artists”. Cr West said “Houdini hounds” often are experts in escapology and find inventive means to break out of fenced gardens and yards. “My dog climbed up a tree to climb over a guinea pig’s hutch and jump down off the letterbox … people very kindly collected her and ring me,” she said. On one occasion Cr West said her dog spent the day at “a very kind” vet’s office before being collected. Council officers will look at the possibility of vets and doggy daycare businesses temporarily housing lost registered pooches. Cr West said a small fee for such a service would be reasonable to most dog owners to avoid pets going to the pound. Council has an arrangement for wandering animals to be sent to the Lost Dogs Home in Cranbourne which can be inconvenient for some Kingston residents to visit during opening hours to retrieve pets. Officers will report back to councillors at a future council meeting in the coming months. Councillors also tasked officers with reporting back on providing “more robust” dog tags since several dog owners have complained that the existing tags are “flimsy” and easily fall off pooches’ collars.

Winter Sleepout helps homeless causes COMPASSION is one of the four values at Banholme’s Cornish College, and compassion is what warmed hearts last Friday evening as more than 60 students, alumni and staff braved the cold temperatures to sleep outside for Cornish College’s Winter Sleepout. Their dedication to the cause raised $23,000 in support of Australians experiencing homelessness, a record for the annual school event. All funds are donated to the charity Backpack Bed for Homeless who support people unable to find shelter. They have an award-winning backpack/swag design, known as a Backpack Bed, that charities can distribute to those awaiting accommodation. “We are very grateful for the opportunity we have to make a small difference through this community event,” Cornish College chaplain and Winter Sleepout organiser Jarrod Davies said. “Cornish people are generous, and we are ecstatic that our record amount of funds raised will help 240 plus people sleep less rough, safer and with more dignity”. On the night, 51 students from Years 6 to 12, two former students and ten staff slept outside in cardboard boxes and participated in a program designed to encourage conversation and action; from a campfire on the College island to night-golf to discussions about homelessness. A record 850 sandwiches were made up from the food donations, to be distributed to children who attend school without lunch and others in

need by the charity Eat Up Australia. “Our students had fun on the night, yet this is combined with a deep inquiry into the issue of homeless-

ness and how we can help going forward. Our staff and students get a tiny taste of what it is like to be cold, hungry and without a home - and

it’s our hope they will go on to keep making a difference in this, and other areas in our community” Mr Davies said.

Party houses warning

POLICE want people to be wary of renting our residences for short-term rental to avoid “a fullscale party house”. Extensive damage to properties and neighbouring homes have occurred across Victoria due to “Facebook parties” and short-term rental services, police say. Landlords should ask appropriate questions to potential tenants before leasing property. Insurers may not pay out and landlord homeowners will be liable for damage. Anyone with concerns should contact their nearest police station.

‘Everything’ goes

BRAZEN thieves have made off with furniture from two homes on the market in Seaford in the past two months. A home in Kirkwood Avenue and property in Raymond Road were emptied of furniture, linen and TVs put on display to showcase the homes for sale. “About $10,000 worth of good was stolen at each property,” Frankston Detective Senior Constable Belinda Rampal said. “Everything was taken.” Police believe a trailer or truck was used to steal the bulky furniture including beds. Furniture was stolen from the Kirkwood Avenue home some time between 28 May and 19 June. The Raymond Road property was emptied on 14 April between open inspections for prospective home buyers. Anyone with any information or who saw anyone removing furniture in the area should contact Detective Senior Constable Rampal on 9784 5555.

Cap cool for hospital patients

Police patrol

Going nowhere: Police are seeking the driver of this smashed silver Holden Astra. Picture: Supplied

Crash car plea POLICE are seeking dash-cam footage of a silver coloured Holden Astra being driven erratically south bound on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, 4.25am, Saturday 16 June. The car, which was later involved in a single vehicle collision, was found with extensive frontend damage in the middle of the freeway blocking both lanes. The driver had fled the scene and, mid-last week, police were making inquiries about the registered owner. Police would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the car travelling on Peninsula Link or the Mornington Peninsula freeway, or who may have come to the driver’s or passenger’s aid after the collision. Leading Senior Constable Ron Trainer, of Mornington police, said footage of the car being driven before it crashed, or the actual crash, would be helpful. Anyone with information or footage is asked to call him on 5970 4900, or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

A NEW treatment for capping hair loss during chemotherapy for cancer is being rolled out at Frankston Hospital. Scalp cooling chills the head and reduces the level of chemotherapy drugs reaching hair follicles to cut down on hair loss. Crib Point mother-of-three Angela Fox this month became the first patient to have scalp cooling. “It’s a marvellous opportunity to have all of this technology in a public hospital, which basically helps you keep your dignity while you’re having all of this treatment done,” she said. “Hair is fairly important – if you’ve still got your hair a lot of people don’t realise what you’re going through and that’s a good thing.” Chemotherapy day unit nurse manager Joan Thomas said scalp cooling will help peninsula cancer patients. “Losing your hair can be quite traumatic. Stopping this from happening can help the mental health and well-being of patients as it helps them continue to look and feel like their usual self.” Ms Fox was diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram in March. “The tumour was very, very small – they were lucky to find it actually,” she said. “Within four weeks I was having surgery at Frankston Hospital to remove the tumour and some lymph nodes from my arm.” The Crib Point resident, also a grandmother-of-two, will have four more chemotherapy sessions while wearing the cooling cap.

“It feels very strange and definitely cold – it feels like when you jump in the water and there are all these bubbles,” Ms Fox said. “It saves me losing my hair though, so I don’t mind what it feels like.” Up to four patients at any time will be able to have cap cooling during treatments thanks to a grant from

Appliances can cause house fires THE CFA wants to make residents do not “power a house fire” through appliances overheating or being damaged. CFA manager community safety Jude Kennedy said using damaged electrical equipment and appliances could result in fires urged that they be checked before being plugged in. “People need to remember that when electrical appliances are left on for an extended period of time they could overheat and have disastrous effects,” Mr Kennedy said. “We are urging residents to check their electrical appliances, including laptops and televisions, which are highly used in homes. “Make sure you turn off and unplug your electrical appliances before going to bed and when leaving your home unattended.” Electrical appliances safety tips: Follow manufacturers’ instructions when using any electrical appliance. Use low wattage globes in lamps. Ensure monitors, laptops, televisions and other equipment have good air flow around them and are not in confined spaces or covered. Turn off all electrical appliances at the power point when not in use. Only use certified electrical tradespeople to repair damaged or faulty electrical appliances, wiring or equipment. Avoid using double adaptors. Use power boards according to manufacturers’ instructions, never overload and check regularly for damage. Meanwhile, on another fire front, expressions of interest are being from anyone interested in joining the Bushfire Strategy Advisory Group. Agencies that manage bushfire risk in Victoria

are developing the next strategic bushfire management plan for the greater Melbourne region and calling upon those affected by bushfire or interested in bushfire management to nominate to be a part of the advisory group that will help shape the plan. “Bushfires are a part of life in Victoria. Our changing climate means our bushfire threat is constantly increasing,” Forest Fire Management Victoria regional manager, forest and fire planning, Shannon Devenish said. “Our community is filled with many diverse voices and we want to ensure we are listening to all stakeholders as we develop the next generation of planning for bushfire risk in our region. “Many people are invested in our bushfire prevention works, whether by smoke from planned burning affecting their business activities, or by living in a high bushfire risk area. It’s important to us these groups are represented in the plan. “We are particularly hoping to receive expressions of interest from people with an interest or investment in agriculture, animal welfare, bees and beekeeping, community safety, stakeholder behaviour in emergencies, cultural heritage, the environment, bushfire behaviour, forestry, tourism and recreation, and wineries.” The advisory group will help identify several combinations of bushfire management strategy while the final decision and endorsements will be made by agencies with legislative accountability.

Peninsula Grammar’s triple achievement THREE students of Peninsula Grammar’s graduating Class of 2017 were recently presented with their Premier’s VCE Awards at the prestigious award ceremony. More than 1100 guests attended the ceremony, where Victoria’s top-performing VCE students from 2017 were recognised for their outstanding academic results. A total of 302 awards were presented to 274 students. Charlotte Holland was one of 23 students to receive a Top All-Round VCE High Achievers Award for attaining study scores of 46 or higher across at least five subjects and the only student on the Mornington Peninsula to receive this coveted award. Charlotte’s 14 year journey at Peninsula Grammar commenced in Kinder and her unwavering commitment to her studies throughout this time ensured this meritorious achievement. Daniel Pham was one of only three students to receive the International Student Award. Daniel’s determination and dedication to his studies are a testament to his ability, making Daniel a most deserving recipient of his award. Grace O’Sullivan was the recipient of a Study Award for Drama. Her score of 50 in Drama was phenomenal, as was her ATAR result. In 2017 Grace combined her enthusiasm for Performing Arts with a diligent study routine whilst at the same time fulfilling her responsibilities as Head of School. Peninsula Grammar’s Class of 2017 achieved an exemplary set of VCE scores through their unrelenting determination to make the most of every opportunity afforded to them during their time at the School. By providing a nurturing environment and the best quality teachers, students at Peninsula Grammar are able to learn, grow and flourish.

Money suggestions sought PEOPLE can have their say on a $10 million “revitalisation package” for the Seaford area until the end of June. The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) wants to hear from locals about how best to improve the area around the Seaford Road level crossing removal near RF Miles Reserve. Frankston councillors at the 4 June public council meeting voted to seek clarity from state Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny on how the money will be spent amid their concerns the $10 million will be absorbed back into the level

crossing removal project instead of towards community groups (“Crossing fund reservations expressed”, The News 13/6/18). Ms Kilkenny said a community reference group would help decide how the fund is allocated. The LXRA says the revitalisation will include six kilometres of walking and cycling paths from Eel Race Road through Seaford and in to Frankston, a new “open community space” and landscaping with streetscaping.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Freak accident at Crib Point Base

Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A SEVERE and painful accident occurred at Crib Point Naval Base last week, by which Mr R. Brown, of Bittern, sustained severe injuries. He was attending to some machinery, when, by some means, his clothes became entangled, and they were practically stripped off him before assistance arrived. The services of Mr Prince, of the First Aid, were obtained, and he advised medical treatment. On the arrival of Dr Atkinson, the sufferer was found to have several ribs broken, and the body severely bruised. He was ordered to the Melbourne hospital, where he is now progressing as well as can be expected. *** LIEUTENANT Claude Grice, son of Mr James Grice, “Moondah”, Frankston who was wounded in France recently, is, we are pleased to state, improving, and has been removed front France to a London hospital. *** A FOOTBALL match between Frankston and Hastings juniors was played at Frankston on Saturday. last. Frankston again proved too good for the visitors, who were defeated by 24 points, the final scores being Frankston 6.11. Hastings 3.5. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday last, before Messrs Oates (chairman) Williams and Grant, J’s.P., a youth named George Vivian, 18 years was charged with stealing a cash drawer from the goods shed at the Frankston railway station, on the night of 18th June.

The accused pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to three month’s imprisonment the bench recommending that he be given into the charge of a reformatory. *** RECOGNISING the splendid work done by the Frankston Wattle Club in entertaining wounded soldiers, and the consequently heavy expenses incurred by the club, the Moonee Valley racing club recently decided to donate £50 to the club funds, and a cheque for that amount has now been received by the secretary, Mrs. A. G. Wilcox — Further donations of a similar nature would be welcomed. *** A HIGH tribute was paid by the Minister of Defence, on Tuesday, to the excellence of the curative work which is being carried out by the Victorian military authorities at the Langwarrin detention camp. Senator Pearce visited the camp in the morning, accompanied by the Acting State Commandant (BrigadierGeneral Williams). He subsequently stated that it had afforded him great pleasure to discover how well the camp was being conducted. Since he last visited the place vast improvements had been effected, and the demeanor and discipline of the patients was all that could be desired. He thought that the manner in which the camp is now being conducted was an object lesson in humane and sympathetic administration of a very difficult problem. *** A PUBLIC meeting under the auspices of the W.C.T.U. with the

cooperation of the I.O.R was held in the Mechanics’ hall, Frankston, on Tuesday evening, June 25th Rev E. Tonkin presided. The meeting opened with the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers”, followed by a prayer by the President. The chairman, after a few well chosen remarks, introduced Mrs Vaughan, of South Australia, who spoke of her war work in England among the soldiers. *** THE Frankston Y.P.S.C.E. will hold their annual sale of gifts today (Saturday) in the Methodist school room. It will be opened at 2pm by the Rev E. Tonkin, and will also be open in the evening, when a silver coin admission will be charged. The proceeds are in aid of the support of the missionary teacher at New Guinea. *** ON Friday, 3rd July, Messrs T. R. B. Morton and Son, under instructions from the Equity Trustees Company will sell two farm properties at Hastings, the property of the late Mr Thomas Hogan. Furniture, vehicles, etc., will also be offered. Full particulars appear in our advertising columns *** A CLEARING sale will be conducted by Messrs Alex Scott and Co at Balnarring on Saturday next, July 6th, when they will sell on account of Mr E. R. Ridgers, horses, implements, furniture, etc. The sale will commence at one o’clock sharp, on the farm. Terms are cash, and every thing will be sold

without reserve.

*** AN old colonist in the person of Augusta Sophia Petrie, relict of the late James Petrie, died suddenly at Nurse Keogh’s private hospital on 11th June at the ripe old age at 88 years. The deceased lady, who was the mother of Mr D. H. Petrie, of Frankston, came to Victoria over 80 years ago, and her grandfather came to New South Wales over 100 years ago, and held the position of Deputy Commissary General of New South Wales for over 20 years. *** IT is quite a long time since an entertainment has been held in the Tyabb hall in aid of other than patriotic funds, but on Friday evening last the Church of England Ladies Guild held a very successful concert in aid of the Church building fund. A splendid programme was submitted mostly of local talent assisted by some first class artists from the Langwarrin Camp. The hall was comfortably filled, and the chair was occupied by Rev. M Coates. The Old Scholars Club again staged a side-splitting farce which greatly amused the whole audience as also did Smith and Lamb, the Comedy Twins from Langwarrin. *** ACCORDING to Dr J. S. Duvel, of the United States Department of Agriculture, America has already made great sacrifices for feeding the men at the front, and has sent to Great Britain 200,000,000,000 bushels of wheat out of her savings. ***

DEPOSITORS in the State Savings Bank are reminded by advertisement that the examiner (Mr G. B. Williams) will be in attendance at the bank on Tuesday, 2nd July, for the annual inspection of passbooks. It is particularly desired that depositors should produce their passbooks at this time. *** BY advertisement in another column Messrs Brody and Mason announce that, having secured the services of Mr Esmond Russell, accountant, they are prepared to undertake the preparing of income and land tax returns, balance and adjust trade books, etc. *** FOR SALE—A Violin. good old instrument, Stradivarius Model, Bow, Case and Music Stand—BRODY & MASON. *** WANTED TO BUY—Green 5ft Wood Messmate or Peppermint, stacked Station Yard. Moorooduc, 6s per ton—D. KELLY, Saw Mill Moorooduc. *** To the Ratepayers of the East Riding. LADIES and GENTLEMEN,—In response to requests of many ratepayers of above Riding. I have decided to become a CANDIDATE at forthcoming Election to be held in August next.—Yours, &c., H. E. UNTHANK. Hastings. 25th June, 1918. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 29 June 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

For Those About to Collect Rocks – We Salute You By Stuart McCullough IT was a result of panic, more than anything. My father had very strong views on pretty much everything, including the importance of having a hobby. I, however, felt that lying on a beanbag and staring out the window was as legitimate a hobby as any my father might care to suggest. He was having none of it. So far as he was concerned, I needed to nail my colours to the mast and, preferably, put the hammer back exactly where I found it. That’s how I decided to collect rocks. I know what you’re thinking – how can anyone do something so boring? For alleged fun? Before you scoff too loudly, I should reveal that collecting rocks was my way out of having to collect stamps. Compared to collecting stamps, rock collecting is a veritable avalanche of pleasure. My father was a stamp collector. He probably still is, but I never ask him about his collection and he never talks about it in public. It had been a childhood passion he was keen to pass on. It became something I was eager to resist. As a child of the seventies, television was my abiding passion. This was confusing to my father, who had gone through childhood before TV existed and couldn’t understand my fascination for it. We were told that watching too much TV would make our eyes go square and turn our brains to little more than overcooked cabbage. ‘Chewing gum for the eyes’, he called it. It felt incredibly unjust. Spending time on my stamp collection meant valuable hours of television viewing were forever lost.

PAGE 18

It was always arbitrary. One moment we’d be watching ‘Happy Days’. The next, my father would appear and announce that tonight was the night we’d collect stamps. Before I could say, ‘Sit on it, bucko’, the set would be switched off and my brother and I

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 27 June 2018

were ushered into the study to begin an interminable evening talking about stamps. For months, my father would dutifully intercept all incoming mail, rip off the right-hand corner of the envelope and then soak the stamp free in a small glass on the kitchen window

will. The results of all this effort were then dumped on the desk and we were expected to go through them. It felt pointless. Nevertheless, for a time I had a stamp collection. I probably still do. I doubt, very much, that there’s anything of great value there. It was after an evening of stamp collecting during which I was particularly forlorn that I was told I could pick another hobby if I was willing to break my father’s heart. Which, as it turns out, I was. I don’t know why I chose rock collecting except that it wasn’t stamp collecting and, on that basis, could only be an improvement. There is, I feel, a certain genius in rock collecting. For starters, they’re in abundant supply. You can barely step outside the door without tripping over one. They very low maintenance. You don’t need to feed them, water them or put them in an album. They’re also a multi-purpose collectible. You can keep them on a shelf and admire them whenever the mood strikes you, you can use them as paperweights or even use them to fend off a potential zombie invasion. Say what you will about stamps – they’re no good for repelling an attack by zombies. Having made my decision to collect rocks, I needed to do something to show this wasn’t all talk. Unfortunately, I knew very little about the subject. However, I was helped enormously after it was revealed that a friend of my mother’s was a geologist and had access to all kinds of high quality specimens. Quite frankly, they were awesome. Before long I was kneedeep in quartz, granite, basalt, shale and – my favourite – conglomerate.

The rocks sat on my bookshelf not doing very much for years. If there was a downside, it was that I was expected to hunt for rocks whenever the family went on holidays and to buy rock related souvenirs from the gift shop. It was a small price to pay. Once I discovered music, I forgot all about my rocks. Which is ironic, I guess, in that I gave up one kind of rock for another. Looking back on it, collecting rocks filled the all-important hobby-gap between childhood and adolescence. As for stamps, I don’t see them that often anymore. Before long, they’ll probably be extinct and that old stamp album will be worth something. Whereas the rocks will still just be rocks. They’re very reliable in that respect. My nephew Tyler had a birthday. He likes to collect rocks. I have no idea how he feels about stamps, but to celebrate we gave him a special rock-collecting satchel. It’s incredibly cool. It comes with a magnifying glass and a rock hammer that he can either use to break rocks or to escape from Shawshank prison. It is, I believe, his primary hobby. It’s great to have hobbies – passions that serve no purpose other than to satisfy our curiousity. There ought to be more of it. I should see if I still have anything from my old collection. I’m not sure where it is, but if I find it, I’ll be sure to mail it to him. I might even use every stamp in my collection to get it there. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Ladder leading Sharks outrun Redlegs DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO Sharks have survived an almighty scare courtesy of Mt Eliza, but held on to claim all four points in their top of the ladder clash at Emil Madsen Reserve. Mt Eliza were fighting for the top position on the ladder, and had their chances boosted by the absence of Sorrento forward Chris Dawes. In wet conditions, Mt Eliza raced out of the gates to establish an early lead over Sorrento, going into the quarter time break with a 14 point lead. The Redlegs were well on top throughout the day, applying more tackles and playing more direct football, which proved to be a smart tactic in the wet weather. Going into threequarter time, Mt Eliza were comfortably 16 points ahead, and Sorrento looked dead and buried. After the final break, Sorrento’s Hallahan brothers came alive in stunning fashion, combining to quickly put a few goals on the board and inject some life into the contest. Mt Eliza were stunned by the way Sorrento played in the final term, with the Sharks dominating centre clearances and showing the class of a premiership team. The Sharks quickly established a lead, and Mt Eliza could do nothing to stop the onslaught of goals. The final quarter ended up being a six goal to one blitz, and Sorrento eventually ran over the top of Mt Eliza in a 10.10 (70) to 13.7 (85) win. Leigh Poholke continued his good run of form with five goals for Sor-

rento, all scored at important moments when the game was hanging in the balance. The win puts Sorrento two games clear of Mt Eliza at the top of

the ladder. One of Sorrento’s best was playing coach Luke Tapscott, who made his return from injury on Saturday. Tapscott

said that while it was good to get the win, there was still plenty of work to do. “We were happy with the four points, but we got away with playing one quarter of footy,” he said. “That’s not how you want to play when you’re on the road. We did start well but we just fell asleep until the last quarter. We’re happy to get away with the win, but I’m not all that happy about the way we went about it.” Sorrento will travel to play Rosebud next Saturday. At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW were looking to break their four game losing run against last place Seaford. Both sides struggled to adapt to the conditions in the first term, with neither side putting a goal on the scoreboard by the first break of play. In the second term Sorrento made a breakthrough and kicked the first goal of the game, but unfortunately the game came to a sudden stop before either side could kick another. An injury to Frankston YCW’s Luke Paynter required an ambulance to be called, and the game was abandoned before half time. The league has ruled that because there had been less than a half of football played, both teams would share the points. At Greg Beck Oval, the Frankston Bombers hosted a Mornington side that has been in impressive form.

The contest looked one sided right from the first bounce, as the Bombers put the injury depleted Bulldogs to the sword with a dominant five goals to zero first quarter. Frankston Bombers continued to pile on the misery in the second quarter, and went into half time with a 41 point lead. Although Mornington were able to restore some respectability with a valiant second half showing, they went down to an impressive Bombers outfit 16.10 (106) to 9.6 (62). Samuel Fox booted five goals for Frankston, while Jason Kingsbury kicked three and was among the best players on the field. In Saturday’s final clash, Bonbeach took on Rosebud at Rosebud Recreation Reserve. Both sides looked evenly matched throughout the contest, with the lead only standing at one point in Rosebud’s favour at the three-quarter time break. Rosebud ran over the top of Bonbeach in the final quarter, registering nine scoring shots to three in a completely one sided showing. With a dominant final term, Rosebud secured their third win for the season running out 8.11 (59) to 10.11 (71) winners. Thomas Stoffels was again among the best for Rosebud, scoring a game high three goals to help his side to victory.

Red Hill continue their rampant run DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn RED Hill have secured their fifth consecutive win in MPNFL Division Two football, continuing their rampaging run with a big win over Hastings. Hasting started well and kept in touch with Red Hill in the first quarter, but the game would not stay competitive for much longer. By the three-quarter time break, Red Hill had established a comfortable 32 point lead and put the game to rest. A six goal to one final term only made the pain worse for Hastings as they went down in an uncompetitive clash 7.5 (47) to 17.7 (109). Chris Irving and Jonathon Ross both starred with six goals each for Red Hill, with their side sitting comfortably at fourth spot on the ladder. At Ballam Park Reserve, Karingal flexed their muscle with a dominating victory over Crib Point. A six goal to two first quarter set the tone for a completely one sided game, with Karingal dominating their lowly Crib Point opponents. It was a complete team performance for the Bulls, who had eleven individual goalkickers throughout their side. The win sees Karingal secure second spot on the ladder, as they claimed an astonishing 98 point victory 20.13 (133) to 5.5 (35). At Bunguyan Reserve, 11th placed Tyabb hosted ladder leaders Dromana in a match that looked uncompetitive on paper. Despite coming in as massive underdogs, the Yabbies raised eyebrows by

battling hard in the first term, and they even went into the quarter time break with a narrow one point lead. A shell shocked Dromana came out in the second quarter determined to make amends for their sloppy first term, as they tightened up in defence and held Tyabb scoreless for the quarter. Dromana continued to make life miserable for the Yabbies, who could only manage one more solitary goal for the remainder of the game. Despite the early scare Dromana battled back well to show their quality and secure a comfortable victory away

from home. The final score was 2.11 (23) to 11.11 (77) in Dromana’s favour. Elsewhere at Glover Reserve, Chelsea put on a clinical performance as they continued their good season against Devon Meadows. Devon Meadows looked as if they might send their fans home with smiles on their faces after an impressive first term, going into the first break with a two point lead. After the first break, the Seagulls kicked things up another gear by holding Devon Meadows goalless in the second term. With a comfortable 16 point buffer established, Devon Mead-

ows had been put on the back foot, and they struggled to work their way back into the game. Regular goalkickers Jack Francis and Curtis Bywater contributed for Chelsea with five goals between them, as their side claimed the four points with a 9.8 (62) to 13.11 (89) win. At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye heaped more misery on a disappointing Pearcedale season by claiming a comfortable 51 point win. Pearcedale looked up to the contest up until half time, as they only trailed by a mere three points at the main break. After half time, Rye quickly put

the game to bed with an impressive five goals to zero third quarter. Rye were a little more competitive in the final term, but could not bounce back from their disappointing third quarter, as they went down to Rye 14.16 (100) to 7.7 (49). Ben Trivett and Leigh Morse were among Rye’s best, as they kicked two goals each in impressive performances. Struggling Pearcedale are set to receive a welcomed boost, with former North Melbourne and West Coast Eagles tall forward Drew Petrie scheduled to play for them in a one off appearance against Devon Meadows at home next Saturday. Pearcedale also recruited Barry Hall for a similar cameo appearance last season. In the final game for the weekend Somerville hosted Langwarrin at Somerville Recreation Reserve. Langwarrin came into the clash full of confidence, coming off a big victory over Tyabb last weekend. Led by star goalkicker Jesse Murphy, they established an early lead and kept Somerville out of reach for most of the day. Murphy booted six goals to take his tally for the year to 46, as his Langwarrin side secured the win 7.12 (54) to 9.12 (66). Langwarrin now sit in sixth place on the ladder after an inconsistent season so far. They sit six points behind fifth placed Hastings, and will need some results to go their way before climbing up the ladder.

Five-star Pines, Johnston steps down SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A SUPERB first half-display from Frankston Pines and the shock resignation of Peninsula Strikers president Trevor Johnston were the big talking points to emerge from last weekend’s round of matches. Pines blitzed Heatherton United early and led 4-0 at the interval eventually running out an easy 5-0 winner. Ben Millward opened the scoring in the 13th minute and two minutes later CJ Hodgson struck. When Lewis Potter headed home from a set piece in the 31st minute Heatherton was staring down the barrel and Hodgson was at the back post right on half-time to drive another nail into the visitors’ coffin. Mitch Lander and Hodgson were constant threats as Pines exploited Heatherton on the break and Lander rounded off the scoreline in the 68th minute to provide gaffer Paul Williams with his biggest win of the season. “What pleased me most was the confidence this win will give the lads as we’ve had some good performances this season but here we turned a good performance into a great result,” Williams said. State 2 South-East neighbour Peninsula Strikers is in crisis following Johnston’s departure coupled with Saturday’s 4-1 home loss to Brandon Park which anchors the club to the foot of the league ladder. Two goals from Hamlet Armenian and one from Josh Caruana had Brandon Park in control before referee Brandon Smith reduced Strikers to 10 men when he ruled that Washid Rashimi had deliberately stopped a goalscoring opportunity and issued a straight red card in the 36th minute. Two minutes later Oscar Marsden made it 3-1 but Armenian completed his hat-trick in the 42nd minute. Strikers had planned to sign three players from Kingston City this week as well as Nat Daher from Langwarrin’s under-20s but there is uncertainty about those moves given Johnston’s departure. The club recently lost captain Ryan Wilson to Casey Comets after he turned his back on a substantial offer from Mornington. Johnston’s decision caught most observers by surprise. “There were a lot of things going on behind the scenes and there are a lot of cultural changes that need to be made,” Johnston said. “I’m proud of the fact that I got the club out of a massive financial hole but I can’t take them any further.

Pines pounce: Ben Millward (left), Ioasa Saemo (centre) and CJ Hodgson celebrate the opening goal at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon

“I was doing so many things and the lack of support was disappointing. “I tried and tried but when it starts to affect your family, your kids, then it’s time to make some changes. “We’ve had five coaches in 12 months and quite frankly I can’t wait till next year with the potential to get someone of the calibre of Adam Jamieson to the club.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin travelled to Shepparton and came away with a point following Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Goulburn Valley Suns. Alou Kuol gave the home side the lead after just six minutes but Suns keeper Fraser Greenwood handled outside his area and was sent off in the 22nd minute. Mehdi Sarwari’s low drive in the 35th minute made it 1-1 and shortly after Liam Baxter found the back of the net with a superb volley only to be controversially ruled offside. A bone-jarring tackle from substitute Frankie Lagana in the 60th minute saw the Suns reduced to nine men and despite Langy dominating possession three superb saves from Suns’ substitute keeper Lucas Enders kept the visitors at bay. Langy’s under-20s lost 4-3 but a scything challenge on 16-year-old Langy forward Keegan Guy forced his departure and incensed coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. The referee didn’t deem the incident worthy of punishment however a few hours later Guy was in hospital being treated for an injury described as being more consistent with a car accident

Chelsea • Mordialloc • Mentone

judging by the internal bruising he had received from the impact of an opponent’s knee in the back. In NPLW news Southern United lost 8-0 to championship challenger South Melbourne at Middle Park on Saturday. The last time these sides met South Melbourne won 13-1. Southern’s under-12s drew 2-2 with both Southern goals scored by Rhiannon Kelleher. Southern’s under-14s continued their march towards a second successive title by downing South Melbourne 3-0. Danica Vukcevic gave Southern a half-time lead and a highlight of the second half was a rare headed goal from last season’s Golden Boot winner Rhys McKenna. Taylah Hennekam scored Southern’s third goal. Southern’s under-16s lost 3-0 while the under-19s lost 11-0. Meanwhile the NPL door is ajar for Manningham United after it increased its lead in State 1 South-East with a 1-0 home win over Mornington last weekend. Dean Lorenzi got the winner in the 48th minute. Mornington’s UK import Max Etheridge came off the bench in the second half after returning to Australia last week and is pushing for a spot in the starting line-up against Beaumaris this weekend. In State 3 South-East news Skye United lost 2-0 at home to Monbulk Rangers on Saturday. The visitors opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Skye couldn’t

stop Chris Wynne’s run on the right of the area and his cutback was slammed home low by Patrick O’Loughlin from 10 metres. Skye’s best chance of the first half came in the 23rd minute when Daniel Attard skinned a defender on the right and cut inside but his square ball to Mitch Blake was met with a sidefoot strike that sailed harmlessly over the bar. Attard, Blake and Jason Nowakowski all blew good chances to level and the goal that ended Skye’s chances came in the 72nd minute and completely bedazzled a ragged Skye defence. Scott surged forward and passed to substitute Shaun O’Rourke on the right and he cut inside before squaring the ball to McRae who first dummied to shoot then calmly slotted the ball past Crook for the clincher. Skye head coach Billy Armour didn’t mince his words after the loss. “The promotion push is over. It’s as simple as that. Right now our focus is on trying to finish in the top half of the table,” Armour said. Skye midfielder Marcus Collier is out for the season and may require surgery to repair his ACL. In State 4 South news Baxter lost 2-1 away to Monash Uni last weekend. There were few clear-cut chances in the first half and the deadlock was broken by a long drive into the top corner from Miles Rodriguez in the 63rd minute. Baxter equalised four minutes later with a clever finish from just outside the area by substitute Ben Meiklem.

The visitors were caught napping in the 80th minute when a quick free-kick sent Monash substitute Stephen Harvey clear and he slipped the ball under advancing Baxter keeper James Foster. Monash striker Sampath Mishra received two yellow cards in quick succession and was sent off late in the match. The big news at Baxter Park this week is the return of former senior coach Roy Kilner who becomes Francis Beck’s second assistant alongside Mitchell Ball. In State 5 South Somerville Eagles triumphed in a seven-goal thriller away to Rowville Eagles last Friday night. Somerville player-coach and league leading scorer David Greening had the visitors 2-0 up after 30 minutes with his second goal coming from the penalty spot. But two goals in a minute from Louis Palmire’s header and a Ruben Ichim chip drew the home side level. Rowville hit the front three minutes into the second half thanks to a stunning Ichim free-kick but an unstoppable leftfoot strike from outside the area from Greening secured his hat-trick. The master scorer wasn’t done with yet and in the 91st minute substitute Jarryd Lymer won a 50/50 challenge and Greening burst past two defenders and slotted home the winner to send Somerville supporters and players into wild celebration. “That was a fantastic advert for State 5 football tonight,” Greening sad. “The spirit we displayed to come back from going behind shows the character we have at this club and I couldn’t be more proud of them.” Aspendale lost its State 5 away clash with Casey Panthers 3-1. Domenic Paul scored from the penalty spot for Aspendale in the first half. Noah Berends, Pal Calvino and Paul were Aspendale’s best. Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Mornington v Beaumaris (Dallas Brooks Park), Peninsula Strikers v Old Scotch (Centenary Park), Mazenod v Frankston Pines (Mazenod College), Seaford Utd v Collingwood City (North Seaford Reserve), Boroondara-Carey Eagles v Skye Utd (Wilcox Field, Carey Sports Complex), Dandenong South v Baxter (Tatterson Park), Somerville Eagles v Chelsea (Somerville Secondary College), Aspendale v Endeavour Hills Fire (Jack Grut Reserve).

Steelers continue stellar run of results

BASKETBALL

THE Western Port Steelers were forced to work for it, but they have extended their winning streak to three games with a win over the Geelong Supercats in Men’s Division One Basketball this Saturday. Making the big trip to Geelong Arena, the Western Port Steelers were in good form heading into their clash with the Supercats, and would have been hopeful of a big victory. Sitting in 4th place on the table, two games clear of their nearest opponent, would have had them considered strong favourites in their match against 9th placed Geelong. However, the Supercats took the game to their opponents in the first quarter and showed they were no easy beats. A big third term was the highlight for the Supercats, as they went into the final quarter with the lead against their highly fancied Western Port opponents. The Steelers had their backs to the wall, but eventually recovered to overcome the deficit and run out narrow five point winners, Geelong Supercats (89) to Western Port Steelers (95). Dylan Travis was the standout for Western Port, dropping 39 points in a match winning performance for his side. The Steelers now only sit one win behind 3rd place Keysborough Cougars, but the Cougars have the advantage of having two games in hand. In women’s competition this weekend, the Mornington Breakers scored an upset in Division Two to knock off the Melbourne University Black Angels. The Breakers currently sit in 8th

place after a widely inconsistent season, and were up against a Melbourne University side that was sitting pretty in 3rd place on the table. Playing away from home, the Breakers impressed by overpowering the Black Angels in the first half, establishing a six point lead at the half time break. Although Melbourne University fought back well in the third quarter, the Breakers proved too strong and secured a huge victory (36) to (48). Ashleigh Wright was the star player for the successful Mornington Breakers side, scoring 21 points and shooting at 54 percent from the three point line. Men’s Division Two featured an intriguing matchup between two sides placed alongside one another on the ladder, as 6th placed Melton Thoroughbreds played host to 5th placed Southern Peninsula Sharks. The Sharks looked more than up for the challenge in the first half, and went into the half time break with a six point lead over Melton. After the break, the Thoroughbreds kicked thing into another gear and started to assert control over the match. With the Sharks holding a narrow lead going into the final quarter, Melton had to dig deep to get a result, but dig deep they did. Melton outscored Southern Peninsula by ten points in the final quarter, and secured a nail biting come from behind victory (80) to (77). Dexter Graham scored 27 points shooting at 55 percent for the winners, while Corey Bond was the most impressive performer for Southern Peninsula with 23 points.

Full of fight: Frankston Raiders came up against Hume City Bulldogs in Second Division Senior Men’s Rugby League on the weekend. It was a close game but the Bulldogs were eventual winners 18-16. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Miller’s soccer academy up and running By Craig MacKenzie FORMER Socceroos assistant coach Scott Miller is keen to provide elite soccer coaching for junior boys and girls throughout the Mornington Peninsula. Miller is the principal of Identity Pro Academy based at Toorak College in Mount Eliza. The former Fulham assistant and Newcastle Jets head coach returned from Denmark last year where he worked as an assistant coach at Aalborg BK. Miller is one of the highest credentialled coaches in Australian soccer and is contracted to Fox Sports as a football analyst. He holds an AFC Pro Diploma and a UEFA A-Licence as well as tertiary degrees in sports science and

sport psychology and wants to impart his expertise to young local players. “Our community academy was created to provide opportunity to local Mornington Peninsula footballers by offering a holistic approach which will encapsulate coaching, skill, movement and high performance programs,” Miller said. “While it’s great to be home much more importantly it’s great to be able to create a platform for young footballers here in Australia and on the peninsula in particular.” Identity Pro’s 10-week program has a high performance component which includes injury prevention, football fitness and exclusive access to over 200

Sudoku and crossword solutions

performance recipes available through the nutrition section of the academy’s website. Dandenong Thunder strength and conditioning coach Alistair Wallace has joined the academy’s coaching staff. Identity Pro also offers a performance psychology component via winning mentality workshops and last week announced that it had partnered with Sports Performance Tracking to offer players real time feedback on the physical demands of the training sessions. There are only 40 places available for 20 boys and 20 girls aged 12 to 16. The boys’ program starts on Monday 23 July and the girls’ program starts on

Thursday 26 July. Identity Pro will also run a school holiday program at Baxter Soccer Club for ages eight to 14 on Monday 2 July. “It’s important to note that this is not an elite academy but instead it is open for all levels who want to improve and it is designed to provide an education of what is involved at an elite level without the pressure and expectation of having to perform,” Miller added. Identity Pro also offers an online subscription for players and clubs who can sign up for access to an exclusive video-based program. For more information go to identitypro.com.au or email info@identitypro. com.au for registration enquiries.
