Facelift for shop strips Neil Walker THE Chelsea and Edithvale shopping strips may be rejuvenated if Kingston Council plans to revitalise the commercial areas come to fruition. Councillors at the latest public council meeting on 23 April voted for council officers to look at ways over summer that car parking and the look of the strips can be improved. A formal structure plan for the Chelsea Major Activity Centre will be conducted.

South Ward councillor Georgina Oxley said “quite a few vacant shops” are noticeable in the Chelsea shopping strip on Nepean Highway. Council officers, in a report tabled at the council meeting, counted eight empty shopfronts amid 88, excluding Woolworths, in the area. “The car parking in Chelsea in summer is almost impossible,” Cr Oxley said at the meeting. Anti-social behaviour and drinking on the foreshore, despite an alcohol ban, were also mentioned in the officers’

report but it was noted police increase street and beach patrols in the summer months. “Other safety concerns in Chelsea identified by council officers include homelessness in The Strand and jet-skis close to the foreshore,” the report noted. Edithvale has been chosen as one of five suburbs around Melbourne to be included in a Neighbourhood Project program. Traders and community members under The Edithvale Collective banner are looking at using money from “the

philanthropically funded program” to install community art and footpath seating amid several initiatives aimed at improving the look and feel of the shopping strip. Council officers baulked at spending ratepayers’ money on a formal Edithvale Major Activity Centre structure plan, estimating the cost at about $130,000. They recommended The Edithvale Collective speak to the Level Crossing Removal Authority about ways to share ideas to revitalise the shopping strip as

part of the level crossing removals program. Central Ward councillor Rosemary West, while supportive of plans to rejuvenate the Chelsea shopping strip, raised a note of caution about building height limits being potentially raised in the wake of a formal structure plan. “So far people have not wanted to lose their two-storey height limit,” Cr West said. She noted suburbs such as Moorabbin and Cheltenham saw “high buildings” emerge after planning reviews.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 2 May 2018


Experts unite in plan to find ulcer cause SCIENTISTS and health experts have joined forces in the battle to stop the spread of the debilitating Buruli ulcer. The federal government last week announced a $1.5 million two-year research study into ways of eradicating the fast spreading disease – which is especially prevalent on the Mornington Peninsula. Of the 275 infections recorded across Victoria last year, and the 35 reported so far this year, more than 80 per cent have occurred on the peninsula, according to study leader Professor Tim Stinear, from the University of Melbourne. Mosquitoes are suspected as being the key factor in the spread of the ulcer-causing bacteria – Mycobacterium ulcerans – possibly first to possums and then to humans. However, it is not understood why

some areas are vulnerable to the disease and others are not. “Speed is of the essence in finding way to stop its spread,” said Professor Stinear,a microbiologist. Ten different research groups, including state health department staff and Mornington Peninsula Shire health officers, will attempt to find out which mosquito species is responsible and then work out ways to cull it by concentrating on its breeding habits. This could take the form of “fogging”, which involves mist spraying of foliage, placing pesticide tablets in lakes or ponds to kill larvae, or spraying inside drains or pipes. Environmental health officers may also go door-to-door to advise residents on how to eradicate mosquito-

breeding areas, such as pets’ water bowls. “There is no one solution at this stage,” Professor Stinear said. “Everything is on the table. “We hope to cover every angle and come up with the right result. “The government has said ‘Yes, you have the money’, so we will start next month.” Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt said the world-first research was “vital in getting to the bottom of this emerging health challenge”. “This is a horrible and painful medical condition. The project will provide much-needed evidence which will inform public health policies to control this emerging disease.” Stephen Taylor

Scratch before ulcer Seaford resident Rob Bowers who was diagnosed as having a Buruli ulcer after a bit of metal scratched what appeared to be a mosquito bite near his right ankle. “I’d been bitten by mosquitoes near the Powlett River [Bass Coast] and a March fly at Gunnamatta. While at work I dropped a bit of sheet metal, which scratched me and opened it up,” he said. A keen surfer, Mr Bowers said the collar on his leg rope also aggravated the wound, which began to grow in size. “It didn’t really bother me but it was as big as a 20 cent coin and wasn’t healing.” A doctor who ruled out a Buruli (or Bairnsdale) ulcer, instead diagnosing the more common bacterial skin infection, cellulitis. However, Mr Bowers’ mother Sue, a nurse who has seen many patients with buruli ulcers, arranged for him to visit the Mt Martha clinic where she works. A doctor there took a swab and within a week confirmed his wound was a Buruli ulcer and booked an appointment for him at Frankston Hospital. The hospital’s infectious diseases officer agreed it was a Buruli ulcer and Mr Bowers is now undergoing a 12-week course of antibiotics. He will go back to the hospital in mid-May for a blood test to see if the antibiotics are working or whether he will need surgery. “I can go in the water [to surf] but must avoid stagnant water,” Mr Bowers said.

Renters’ rights fight

Young citizens top of their game KINGSTON’S Young Citizen of the Year Awards has seen a trio of young achievers recognised for community engagement in the municipality. Laura Vandersluys, 25, deputy chair of the Victorian Youth Congress, was named 2018 Young Citizen of the Year. She works at the Bayside Glen Eira Kingston Local Learning and Employment Network and is passionate about highlighting youth unemployment challenges and works with employers to give youth a chance. The awards are open to young people aged 12-25 with a strong connection to Kingston. “We were faced with the difficult task of choosing just

one winner, but all of our finalists are remarkable young people making a positive difference in their local community,” Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said. Working with the Foundation for Young Australians, Laura guided the development of a VCAL career-based toolkit which is now being used by 200-plus schools and more than 7100 students. The two finalists were Elizabeth “Lizzie” Honeybone, 17, unit chair of the 4th Mordialloc Sea Scouts and former Science and STEM domain leader at Mentone Girls Secondary College and Sammar Bassal, 22, a dedicated member of two Kingston Youth Services committees with a flair for graphics software teaching and graphic design.

KINGSTON Council is joining a campaign calling on the state government to give renters “greater stability and protection”. Mayor Cr Steve Staikos said may renters face “unfair treatment” from landlords and insecure short-term leases. “More than 12,600 households in Kingston are rental households with 800 of them experiencing extreme rental stress with more than 50 per cent of their income spent on rent,” Cr Staikos said. “Housing affordability in Kingston is set to worsen and there is a real shortage of affordable homes in the area.” Councillors have unanimously agreed to back Tenants Victoria’s “Make Renting Fair” campaign, supported by more than 60 community groups and councils across the state. “The Victorian government is currently reviewing the Residential Tenancies Act, which controls safety, security and privacy for 1.2 million people across the state,” Cr Staikos said. “We will be writing to the Minister for Consumer Affairs Marlene Kairouz urging her to make rental laws fairer by scrapping ‘no reason’ eviction notices, introducing minimum property standards, and a number of other measures. “Unfortunately, those who are hit hardest by unfair rental laws are often those who are already facing disadvantage, including those who have experienced homelessness, people living with mental illness or a disability, older people and lowincome households.”

Club building is go A DESIGN to replace the ageing Edithvale Life Saving Club has finally been accepted by a state government department after initial plans were knocked back for not complying with environmental regulations. The Department of Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) has approved new plans for a new building in the wake of a rejection of the first proposal last year (“Life saving club redesigned for coast”, The News 6/12/17). Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said council is “thrilled” at the thumbs up for the latest design. “The current building has served the community well but is ageing and needs replacing,” Cr Staikos said. “Every summer more than 20,000 visitors flock to Edithvale beach and it’s vital that the Life Saving Club has the facilities it needs to ensure the public’s safety in the water.” The state government is contributing $1.5 million of tax payers’ cash to the rebuild of the Edithvale Life Saving Club building and council is pitching in $2.72 million of ratepayers’ money. A new building was originally budgeted at $3.4 million but has now risen to about $4.2 million. The first design was rejected by the DELWP for not meeting Coastal Management Act regulations.

DRONE technology brought out the best in photographer Joshua Brnjac with his bird’s eye view photograph winning best picture at year’s Picture This award. The 16-year-old used a drone to capture a surfer from above in his winning Lone Surfer, Into the Depths entry. “The level of talent on show by our local youth is always inspiring and this year was no different,” Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said. The annual Picture This competition for photographers aged 12-25 is held by Kingston Youth Services. This year’s runner-up was Joshua Ratten, 18, for a Lake Windermere photograph taken while hiking on Tasmania’s Overland Track. Ella Crawford, 12, claimed third place with Trees of Life snapped at a friend’s farm in Victoria’s Otway Ranges. See or call 1300 369 436 for groups, event and program details.

Slow down plea WHILE most people know to slow down when they see an emergency vehicle ahead with red and blue lights flashing, or an alarm sounding, few know that it is actually breaking the law to pass at more than 40kph no matter which side of the road you are on (see illustration, right). The speed limit aims to set a standard for safe driving so that emergency workers can get on with their work without worrying about being run over by a speeding vehicle or hit by debris. Leading Senior Constable Darren Myers, of Mornington Peninsula traffic operations, said motorists must slow down to a speed that would enable them to stop safely when approaching police, emergency or escort vehicles that are stopped or moving slowly, and have either: Red and blue flashing lights, magenta (purple flashing lights) or an alarm sounding. A slow moving emergency vehicle would include a fire truck extinguishing roadside fires. “You must not exceed 40kph when passing the vehicle and not increase your speed until you are a safe distance from the scene,” Leading Sen-

ior Constable Myers said. “The new rule does not apply to vehicles on the opposite side of a divided road, separated by a raised median strip, but it does apply when an emergency vehicle is stopped up ahead on your side of Peninsula Link.” A median strip can be covered in grass, be a wire rope or concrete barrier or a continuous painted island, but white lines – whether single or broken – are not considered median strips.

His works, which include film, photography and publishing, start with the drowning of the players from the Mornington Football Club, who were returning home by sea after playing against Mordialloc. Only four bodies were ever recovered. The event is still regarded as one of the worst sailing disasters in Victoria’s history and remains the greatest tragedy in Australian football history.

Frankston soldier succumbs to wounds Compiled by Brodie Cowburn WORD has been received by Mr and Mrs Goodwin, of Frankston, from the Defence authorities, that their son, Private Goodwin, has succumed to wounds received in France on 8th April. The deceased soldier, who will not be 21 years old until August, enlisted in July 1915 and was previously wounded in France. He has two brothers still on active service. Great sympathy is expressed for Mr and Mrs Goodwin in their sad bereavement. A memorial service was held on Sunday evening last in the Richmond Presbyterian Church, of which Pte. Goodwin was a prominent member before he enlisted. *** IN connection with his candidature for the Flinders by-election, Captain Bruce M.C., the Nationalist candidate will address the electors at Frankston on Tuesday afternoon, March 7th at 3 o’clock, and at Mornington on the same day at 8 o’clock. On Tuesday evening Mr Edmund Jowett, M.P. member for Grampians, will address the electors in support of Captain Bruce’s candidature in the Frankston hall at 8 p.m. *** ON Monday evening, May 6th, Mr Gordon J. Holmes, the selected Labor candidate in the forthcoming Flinders by- election, will address the electors at Frankston, in the Mechanics’ Institute. *** PRIVATE E. A. Worrall, who for some years conducted a hairdressing establishment at Frankston, returned to Melbourne last week, after a long

spell of service in France, where he was wounded. *** MR James Grice, of “Moondah,” Frankston, received word on Friday morning that his son Claude, had been wounded in France. In the absence of further news, we trust that the injury received by Private Grice is not serious. *** MAJOR R. F. Gray, eldest son of Mr. C. Gray, of Frankston, had been awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. The council of the the Working Mens College, of which Mr. Gray is president, on Monday evening congratulated Mr. Gray on the distinction gained by his son. *** IN the casualty list published last week, the names of Sergeant B. I. Griffith, Frankston, and Private W White, Pearcedale, appear under the heading of wounded. *** NEXT Sunday, May 5th, is “young people’s day” throughout the Victoria and Tasmania Methodist Conference. The Rev E. Tonkin will conduct both services at the Franston church. In the morning there will be a special Responsive service; and in the evening, the subject of the address will be “Family Religion”. *** AN important clearing sale will be conducted by Mr. W. A. Korner on Saturday next May 11, when he will sell farm implements, horse, buggy etc at Lyndos Farm, Langwarrin on account of Mr. C. C. Smith. Full particulars are advertised.

*** THE Victorian Protestant Federation. The meeting called by advertisement in our last issue, for the purpose of taking the initial steps towards forming a branch of the above federation at Frankston was extremely well attended, between 60 and 70 residents being present. Cr W. J. Oates was voted to the chair. After the chairman had explained the object for which the meeting was called, Mr Dower moved that Mr Ward be appointed. Mr Ward expressed himself pleased with the position alloted him and would do his best to carry out the duties honorably. He then read the correspondence that had passed between the secretary of the Federation and himself with regard to the most convenient date for holding a public meeting at Frankston for the purpose of starting a branch here, and Friday, the 10th of May was mentioned as a date likely to suit all parties. The correspondence was received, on the motion of Mr Thomas, seconded by Mr. Grice. *** ANZAC Day was commemorated in the Frankston school last Thursday by saluting the flag, singing the prescribed hymns, and appropriate addresses. In the afternoon a jumble sale was held and despite the rain there was a good attendance of buyers. The President of the Shire, Cr W. J. Oates, in an effective speech, emphasized the urgent necessity for money to provide food, to save our imprisoned soldiers from the awful death of slow starvation. He then declared the sale open.

*** THERE was a large attendance at the recruiting meeting held here Monday night when Sgt. Middleton gave a fine speech, appealing for recruits. A picture, “A Man That’s All”, was screened under the direction of Sgt. Sturn. Doctor Griffeth was chairman of the meeting and Miss F. Unthank supplied the music. *** Tyabb: A social evening to welcome home three more local boys, Privates L Geriard, R. MacLauren and Lawrence Cole was held in the hall on Friday evening 26th. A large attendance was present and a very enjoyable evening was spent. Dancing was the main feature, and items were contributed by Mr B. King, Mr Geo. Slocombe, and R. Denham, and Misses E. Woodhouse L. Slocombe and V. Cole. Cr Longmuir presented each of the soldiers with a pocket book and wallet (inscribed) and accorded them a hearty welcome and a speedy recovery on behalf of the residents. Mr R Mair also spoke on behalf of the Red Cross and touched on the present crisis and the urgent need of recruits. Mr F. Mills chairman of the presentation Committee occupied the chair. An excellent supper, which had been provided by the ladies, was served about midnight and dancing was carried on until about 2 a m. *** THE “Hard Times” ball held in the Progress Hall at Moorooduc on Friday evening was a great success, the weather being against helping for

the best results; but there was a good attendance; and dancing was indulged in to the music supplied by Messrs Grierson and Cavell, whilst Mr Leo Davis acted as M.C. The costumes were not as numerous as the occasion warranted. Miss Jones was dressed in a neat costume, made of empty Meggitt’s linseed meal bags; while Mr James Turner was in old clothes representing T.P. *** THOMAS HOLLY V ADAMS & CO. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—In defending this case, we did so, more from the desire to establish a ruling on the, question of liability of the shortages in milk consigned in broken lots than from an economy point of view as might easily be judged when the cost of a days trip from Frankston with a witness are reckoned up, as against a 16s claim. However as the Bench grasped a businesslike view of the case and gave the opinion that senders should advise the quantities in broken cans daily to their buyers we feel our object has been gained, and hope that the effect of it may be to prevent the continual loss of milk in transit, as between producers and distributors. We beg to ask that you publish the main parts of case at least as heard at the court on Monday last so that the farmers generally may be put in possession of the suggested improved method to be adopted when sending “broken cans” of milk. Yours Truly, E. A. ADAMs & Co. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 4 May 1918

Treat Mum with a Trip to the Theatre this Mother’s Day By Erica Louise THIS Mother’s Day, treat Mum to an unforgettable trip to the theatre. With a fabulous line-up of shows on the Peninsula to enjoy this year you can forget flowers and chocolates this Mothering Sunday. Opt for the gift of an experience and spoil Mum with a trip to the theatre over the wintry months ahead. Why Theatre Tickets make the Best Gifts for Mum. Mother’s Day is typically the one day of the year to shower a Mum with gifts. The usual options would be a lovely bouquet of flowers, her most-liked sweet treats or perhaps her favourite perfume. Albeit with good intentions, the joy of giving and receiving celebratory token gifts soon fades whereas the gift an experience can last a lifetime, particularly for a Mother who enjoys activities over material things. Whether your Mother is well-versed in performing arts or has experienced live shows only a handful of times, a trip to the theatre evokes a special feeling, regardless of age or background. There is a reason why trips to the theatre remain the top of many people’s lists so why not add a theatre experience to Mum’s 2018 calendar too. The Gift of an Experience this Mother’s Day with Theatre Tickets to Frankston Arts Centre Whether it be dance, comedy, musical theatre or drama, there is an array of performances to suit all tastes at Frankston Arts Centre in 2018. For the drama loving mum, re-visit the play that made playwright Hannie Rayson famous with the well-loved family tale, Hotel Sorrento. Set on the Mornington Peninsula, Hotel Sorrento tells the tale of three sisters who re-unite to discover that the memories they share may not only bring them together but also could drive them apart. Coming to Frankston for one night only, on Saturday 19 May, and featuring a cast of eight amazing actors this play is one that all generations love. Frank Sinatra’s musical career will be explored live on stage in Frankly Sinatra this June. Australian musical theatre star Phillip Gould will be joined by winning singer/actress Michelle Fitzmaurice. The duo

will sing and dance their way through 22 Sinatra hits including My Way, Three Coins in a Fountain, Fly Me to the Moon and High Hopes. Book Mum tickets to Frankly Sinatra at Frankston Arts Centre on Friday 8 June, 2018. An irresistible fusion of ballet and Cuban street dance will see Ballet Revolución sizzle on the stage this May. Performing to current pop, R&B and hip hop tunes, Ballet Revolución at Frankston Arts Centre sees a troupe of lithe Cuban dancers leap and spin in an explosive 95-minute dance performance on Wednesday 16 May, 2018. Elvis impersonator Mark Anthony returns to the stage this September, bringing Elvis - The King In Concert to the Frankston Arts Centre. Adelaide born Mark Anthony is noted as one of the top five Elvis performers in the world (out of an estimated 180,000!). He will re-enact the looks, moves & sounds of Elvis, and the electrifying magic of the Madison Square Gardens in Elvis – The King in Concert at Frankston Arts Centre on Saturday 1 September, 2018.

How to Survive an Official ‘Rain Day’ By Stuart McCullough I CAN hear it on the roof. Rain, glorious rain, sheeting down with so much force that the dog has decided to wait it out, taking shelter in the back bathroom. These are the days when excursions outside are either carefully timed (I think I see a patch of blue sky!) or are a titanic battle against the elements as you duck, weave and skip in the hope of reducing the degree to which you are inevitably drenched. But despite the adversity, there’s something great about a rainy day. Not that I’ve always thought so. As a kid, a rainy day seemed like a disaster. This was because they removed what – to a child at least – seemed like a fundamental human right – the right to play outside. I was never really an out-doorsy kind of person. It was only when the right to go outside was removed that I really cared about it. Trapped inside with my siblings, it was a matter of time before the wheels would come rolling off. Every ‘indoors’ day I can remember ended in conflict and recrimination, although none of them started that way. Having two brothers and two sisters meant there were always plenty of people to play with and almost zero tolerance for declarations of boredom. However, getting consensus between five people is nigh-on impossible and, often, more time was devoted to arguing as to what it was we should be doing than actually doing it. There was ‘hide and seek’. It was a game that required no equipment


and had almost no rules. It encouraged innovation. It also gave you the opportunity – if you so chose to take it up – not to look, leaving a brother and sister to sequester themselves unnecessarily for hours like a Japanese soldier who doesn’t know the war is over. The game would begin with someone counting to twenty with their eyes closed and promising not to peek as the rest of the family scattered. Someone would always be found in the first ten seconds. Always. Whether they’d decided to hide behind the curtains, leaving their feet to protrude or had convinced themselves they had the power to make themselves invisible and had not hidden at all, it ultimately mattered little. Sometimes, my brothers and sisters would do a pretty

good job – squeezing themselves into some nook or cranny. But it was those that were willing to push the boundaries that did best by hiding somewhere that was, ostensibly, out of bounds. Our parent’s room, the pantry or, possibly, up in the roof – these were the envelope-pushing choices of a true hide and seek champion. It was always tough to know how long a game of hide and seek would last. Maybe ten minutes. Perhaps an hour. There was never an official end. It was more that someone declared they weren’t playing anymore and you had to decide whether or not to limp on without them or succumb to the inevitable. Games didn’t finished – they unraveled. Fort-building was a favourite. Strategically positioned chairs, sheets

and blankets could transfer a living room. Couch cushions were especially useful. The thrill of being able to create your own sanctuary in the middle of the house was enormous. Things generally went pear-shaped if there was a dispute over which family members were permitted entry. Adults were excluded (obviously). But there was no quicker path to ignominy and distress than to exclude a sibling. It would inevitably result in an appeal to a higher jurisdiction – namely our parents, who would swoop in and determine that entry was available to all. Board games were the option of last resort. In fact, they should be called ‘bored games’, because there’s nothing so bone crushingly dull than an afternoon playing ‘Monopoly’. I appreciate others may feel differ-

ently. It starts with the figurines. I always got stuck with the iron. As an eldest child, ‘Monopoly’ was where my place in the family hierarchy first came under serious challenge. I was beaten soundly and often by almost everyone. It was where I also discovered what a sore loser I was. Turns out I didn’t much like being bested by a younger brother or sister. Not one little bit. ‘Monotony’ was one of those games and seldom reached the end. It was more a test of endurance that ended as a matter of necessity after people abandoned ship. Those days seemed to last forever. There would, of course, be fighting. It wasn’t because we didn’t like each other. It was more a case that being trapped inside for an entire day caused us to go absolutely, bat-fried crazy. I was as culpable as anyone. There was always a tipping point when things went a little too far and someone was reduced to tears. The sense of being trapped ended only when the sun came out or dinner was served. The dog is snoring and it’s still raining. I’m in my study, playing with various musical instruments, plugging things in an out, trying to keep everything in tune. I’m not sure where my wife is. Possibly, she’s playing hide and seek and I should probably start looking for her. When she does emerge, she’ll be surprised to find that I’ve built a fort in the living room. As a precaution, I have hidden our Monopoly set. Employment

Mornington no match for Sharks DIVISION ONE

MORNINGTON’S position in the doghouse of division one wasn’t helped at all with a loss to Sorrento at Alexandra Park. Winless in 2018, the Dogs really needed to get some momentum. It was always going to be a big ask. Sorrento held Mornington goalless in the first quarter and kicked on from there. Mornington was never in it and ended up going down by 62 points. The chocolates for best spectacle would have to go to the Rosebud versus Seaford clash. A match with more swings than a kids playground, there was only two points in it at quarter time before Rosebud put the pedal to the metal in the second. They kicked eight goals to zip to be 36 points up at the main break. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the momentum would hold, but they were in for a shock, as Seaford came out in the third quarter, held them scoreless, and put six through the big sticks and a further six through the small ones. The tussle continued into the final quarter, with Rosebud steadying the ship and the scoreboard a level 68 points each at the final siren. Mt Eliza had the home ground advantage against Bonbeach in their game. It was a tight tussle all day with hardly more than a kick in it until the fourth quarter. Mt Eliza shifted into another gear in the final quarter, kicking six goals to one to end up with a 43-point win. Jordon Moncrieff kicked four for the winners, and Trent Dennis-Lane kicked five for Bonbeach, bagging more than half the team’s goals on his own. A win by Frankston Bombers against Pines saw them swap places on the ladder. The fourth-placed Pines came up against sixth-placed Bombers at Greg Beck Oval, but they trailed at every change, eventually going down by 26 points. The Bombers are now fourth on the Division One ladder, and sitting there with the same number of wins under their belt as second-placed Mt Eliza and third-placed Sorrento. In the final match of the round, Edithvale-Aspendale took on unbeaten and ladder leaders Frankston YCW. It was always going to be tough, but Edithvale-Aspendale had a shot on paper, being third on the ladder. And it was by no means a runaway win for YCW, with only a couple of kicks in it all day. In the end, it was only two straight kicks that separated the teams, but the damage on the ladder being more than that. YCW kept the top spot, but Edi-Asp slipped to fifth.

Hastings sing the blues at the hands of Karingal DIVISION TWO

IT was neck-and-neck between Karingal at Hastings, until the first bounce. Then it was all downhill for the Blues. They trailed all day and never really got a sniff. Karingal were up by 27 points at the main change and took the day by 33 points at the final siren. In doing so, they’ve grabbed Hastings’ third spot on the ladder and sent the Blues one further back to fourth. Crustaceans everywhere would have been hanging their heads in shame after the Tyabb Yabbies got belted again, this time by Chelsea. In the end, they went down by 57 points. The Yabbies are in hot water for 2018. The only thing that Tyabb have to be happy about is they’re not Crib Point. The Magpies horror start to 2018 continued with a shellacking at the hands of Red Hill. They went down by a resounding 79 points. The only positive was that the margin could have been much higher. Wayward kicking by Red Hill saw them slot 20 minors in their score. Langwarrin burst out of the gates against Devon Meadows and had hit the half-century by quarter time. The Panthers had only managed seven points in the same timeframe. Langwarrin coasted along for the rest of the day, maintaining their margin, and winning the match by 37 points. Somerville did it easily against Pearcedale in front of a home crowd. Again, it was a one-sided affair, and Pearcedale were never really in it. Somerville took home the chocolates 14.23 (107) to 8.6 (54), while Pearcedale only got to lick the wrapper.

Melee mars great Mornington comeback SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON staged a remarkable comeback to snatch a point from Casey Comets in a controversial and spiteful State 1 South-East encounter at Comets Stadium on Friday night. Comets players trudged off the pitch at game’s end with their heads down after blowing a two-goal lead and having to settle for a 3-3 draw in a riveting contest. Comets struck first thanks to a superb Connor Belger through ball and a clinical low strike from the talented Robert Prescott in the 27th minute. Sammy Orritt was left dumfounded after a point-blank tip over from Comets keeper David Thomson in the 36th minute but three minutes later scores were level. A slick interpassing move down the left set up Jack Truelove whose cutback was controlled then slammed home from the edge of the area by Mornington midfielder Sam Scott. In the 50th minute momentum swung back to the home team after another superbly weighted through ball by Belger set up Dejan Radojicic and his classy finish past advancing Mornington keeper Liam Little made it 2-1. Five minutes on and all hell broke loose after a bad tackle from behind felled Belger. Players became involved in an ugly melee and once some semblance of order was restored both sides pleaded their case in a desperate attempt to influence referee Patrick Chaplin who was consulting both of his assistants. The end result was a red card for Mornington defender Josh Valadon which had the visitors up in arms. Things went from bad to worse for Mornington when Cody Martindale caught them on the break in the 63rd minute and made it 3-1. But the contest turned on a poor decision by Belger in the 82nd minute when he chose to slide in from behind and give referee Chaplin no choice but to send him off. Scott curled a brilliant free kick past Thomson to make it 3-2 in the 88th minute and what seemed impossible became reality two minutes later when despite his height disadvantage Orritt was able to head in at the far post to make it 3-3. Injuries played a major part in Langwarrin’s 5-1 home loss to Moreland Zebras in their NPL2 East contest last weekend. Langy conceded a goal in the 2nd minute but Andy McLean equalised when he turned the ball in at the far post in the 25th minute.

Towering Langy midfielder Mat Luak was red carded just before half-time. Langwarrin’s cause wasn’t helped by injuries to McLean, Luke Burgess and captain Boris Ovcin and having made three substitutions the home team was forced to play with just nine men for the final 10 minutes. Moreland Zebras are a quality outfit and were rewarded for their pressure with four second-half goals while Langy was spared further heartache by the skill and heroics of keeper Robbie Acs. Peninsula Strikers’ season of turmoil got worse on Saturday when it went down 3-2 to nine-man Berwick City in their State 2 South-East fixture at Centenary Park. This rollercoaster clash started with goals from Nathan Smith and Ryan Thompson giving Strikers a 2-0 lead af-

ter just three minutes. Orlando Mejias enhanced his record against Strikers with a 12th-minute goal to make it 2-1 then Berwick went down to 10 men when Denilson Noronha was red carded in the 20th minute. But two minutes later Christopher L’Enclume made it 2-2. The seesaw nature of this gripping contest continued in the second half when Shane Savanah was sent off in the 62nd minute but against the odds, Mejias settled the issue with an 82ndminute strike. Frankston Pines lost 2-1 at home to Brandon Park on Saturday. Pines had few answers to the guile and experience of Vinnie Bontemps and Hamlet Armenian with the latter opening the scoring in the 20th minute with a neat turn and a deftly executed strike

into the top far corner. His attacking companion Bontemps chested down a long ball about 10 minutes later then turned and struck a low shot from just outside the area to make it 2-0. Pines hit back from the penalty spot in the 65th minute thanks to CJ Hodgson and should have had a second penalty with what looked a clear handball in the 82nd minute but referee Harry Mangavilas waved play on. Pines’ final chance of a reward for its late pressure came in the third minute of added time but striker Mitch Landers directed his close-range header straight at Brandon Park keeper Peter Koundanis who was able to parry. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United dragged itself off the bottom of the State 3 South-East ladder with a 2-0 home win over Middle Park on Saturday. Seaford made two midweek signings, Jeremy and Matty Schwellinger, and the former took just four minutes to round Middle Park keeper Marshall Brown and score from a tight angle. The second half developed into a spiteful affair and the visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 70th minute after Shaun Rodden was sent off. A few minutes later Conor Mcfall was brought down after a great run on the right and Matt Morris-Thomas converted from the spot to make it 2-0. Seaford’s Matt Surgenor was shown a red card in the 76th minute and five minutes later he was joined on the sidelines when Middle Park’s Kevin Tollitt got his second caution. Seaford’s first win since July 2017 sets up a derby shootout this weekend when Paulo Pinheiro’s side travels to Skye Recreation Reserve to take on Billy Armour’s men. Former Bulleen midfielder Harrison Michaelis debuted for Skye United in its 2-1 away win over Noble Park on Saturday. The visitors struck early when Caleb Nicholes charged down an attempted clearance from Noble Park custodian Nikola Popetkov and the rebound rolled into the empty net in the 7th minute. The visitors doubled their advantage in the 27th minute when Mitch Blake’s through ball found Daniel Attard and he made no mistake finishing inside the near post. The second half saw Skye dominate in the early stages but failing to convert and Noble Park’s response came in the 86th minute through a well-struck shot from Zarko Milojevic. Baxter lost 3-1 away to Endeavour United in Saturday’s State 4 South clash. The half-time stalemate was broken in the second half after Endeavour keeper



Sasho Ancevski fouled Dan Disseldorp and Owen Kilner converted the resultant penalty. Endeavour was dangerous counterattacking and was rewarded when a cross from the right was not cleared and Dalveer Jando equalised with a strike from 10 metres. Five minutes later Kilner denied an Ifeoluwa Ogidan attempt but the ball fell to Aaron Credlin who hit it in off the post to make it 2-1. Ogidan sealed Baxter’s fate after a superb solo run ended with a top corner strike that gave Baxter keeper James Foster no chance. Liam Kilner came off the bench in the final 15 minutes and is pressing for a first-team start next weekend. State 5 South outfit Somerville Eagles bounced back from the previous week’s setback with a 2-1 away win against Lyndale United on Saturday. A dubious penalty was awarded to Lyndale after James McKenzie was alleged to have handled midway through the first half but Eagles keeper Cam Parsons denied the home team with a fine save. Somerville took the lead just before half-time when Louis Griffiths broke onto a Dave Greening through ball and beat Lyndale keeper Daniel Pehar at his near post. In the 59th minute, Parsons was forced from the field and taken to hospital with a dislocated knee. Central defender Ash Scholes went in goal for the last 30 minutes and shortly after the visitors doubled their lead when Griffiths played an excellent through ball to Greening who slammed the ball home with his left foot. Lyndale hit back in the 76th minute when Adam Zilic was given a free header from a corner, setting up a tense finale but Somerville held on marshalled superbly throughout by man-of-the-match Matt Swanson. Felix Arena has stepped down as Somerville Eagles president for personal reasons and Luke Mulder has filled the vacancy on an interim basis. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: North Geelong v Langwarrin (Elcho Park), Mornington v South Springvale (Dallas Brooks Park), Knox City v Frankston Pines (Egan Lee Reserve), Mooroolbark v Peninsula Strikers (Esther Park Reserve), Skye Utd v Seaford Utd (Skye Recreation Reserve), Baxter v Hampton Park Utd (Baxter Park), Knox Utd v Somerville Eagles (Park Ridge Reserve). SUNDAY 5.30pm: Bayside Utd v Southern Utd (Kingston Heath Soccer Complex)..

Mordialloc Ducks off to a flyer By Ben Triandafillou THE Mordialloc Ducks have begun to write the record books with a flying start to their opening season on Saturday 14 April. Under club president Ben Newton, the Ducks have claimed two victories from their first two games in division EL of the Melbourne Winter Baseball League and don’t look to be taking a backwards step. The club has just the one Senior Men’s side which was accepted into the league just over a month ago, and although inexperienced, the side has been able to put back-to-back victories on the board in front of their home crowd at the Cheltenham Baseball Club. Following their two-run win over Forest Hill on Saturday 21 April,

club president Ben Newton said that he didn’t know how the side would perform this season but is glad to see them start off in a winning way. “We entered the season with not much expectation as we didn’t know what the other teams were like and we weren’t really sure of how we would go ourselves,” he said. “We had just the two training sessions beforehand and many of the guys are still getting used to the game – it’s been a real learning curve.” The past couple of weeks have been filled with “firsts” for the club, with the first hit being struck by Ben Newton and the first pitch being thrown by Scott Rodda, but it was in their second week when Ben Davenport whacked home their first home-run that topped it all off. “[It was] amazing,” Newton said. “It

was in a tight spot in the game and he got every bit of it. Seeing all the guys come out and congratulate him was really special.” The Ducks are more of a “social club” for those who are restricted by work and other time restricting factors, and therefore don’t do mid-week training but Newton said they still go out on the field and give it their all. “The focus for our club is definitely the social side of the sport but we are still quite competitive on the field,” he said. “We would love to put together a Women’s side and another Men’s team next season and eventually look at a T-ball or juniors program.” While the season has started the fixture for the league hasn’t been published as of yet so the Ducks will take every game on a week-by-week basis.

Kaoullas faces familiar opponent MORNINGTON Peninsula boxer Adam Kaoullas is lining up for the Victorian State Welterweight Title on Saturday 19 May against a familiar boxer in Dillon Bargero at the Malvern Town Hall. The professional welterweight boxer faced Bargero in November last year where he almost had the fight won in the opening round until Bargero picked himself up off the canvas to fight it out until the end. Kaoullas took out the fight by unanimous decision after the fourth round but he is confident that he can claim the victory a lot earlier in this match-up.

“He made it interesting that night but I feel like I’ve improved out of sight so hopefully I can show it when we face each other again,” he said. “My mindset has changed massively. I’m more relaxed and enjoying it a lot more as I used to put too much pressure on myself. The more bouts and more experience I get, I have less stress and feel a lot more confident heading into my fights.” Kaoullas has faced one more opponent since Bargero and defeated him by a unanimous points decision on Sunday 25 February. While Bargero has had four

fights since their match-up, winning one by knock-out as well as defeating the New South Wales champion Eddie Dos Santos by unanimous decision last month. The match-up is set for eight rounds instead of the four rounds which they fought last time but Kaoullas doesn’t see it going that long. “It’ll be a good a stepping stone for the rest of my year,” he said. “He’s killing it at the moment so he’s definitely a worthy opponent but I’m excited to get in there and show everyone what I’ve got.” Ben Triandafillou

City fame: Jessica Eaton returns to the mounting yard after claiming her first Melbourne metropolitan race aboard Famelist. Picture: Supplied

Eaton strikes metro fame By Ben Triandafillou APPRENTICE jockey Jessica Eaton officially transferred to Mornington-based trainer Chris Meagher two weeks ago and has quickly claimed her first Melbourne city winner. Eaton, who has been on loan to Meagher for the past six months, continued her winning relationship with the in-form mare Famelist, for Mornington trainer Gary Carson, when saluting at Sandown on Wednesday 18 April. Eaton has been aboard the seven-year-old mare at all four of her starts this preparation and has racked up three victories since storming home first-up in a benchmark 64 at Sale at $51 to win on Tuesday 27 February. Eaton was full of praise for the mare and said she was even happier to get the win for the Mornington-based Caron’s stable. “It’s a pretty special horse and she has been in really great form recently,” Eaton said. “He (Gary Carson) has a small team at Mornington so it was great to get my first Melbourne city winner for them, and to be a part of the ride has been amazing.” It’s been a successful couple of weeks for the 24-year-old hoop who also claimed the National Apprentice Jockey Series for Victoria on the Wednesday prior to her win aboard Famelist. While Eaton concluded the series in Perth with a short-neck second aboard Scoreline, she had done

enough to clinch the title and topped it off with her maiden city win aboard the Stephen Rowe-trained Classi Survivor ($17) in the final race of the day. “Being able to go to another state and compete against other jockeys is an incredible experience,” she said. “Meeting new people and seeing different jockeys, you can learn a lot. There were apprentice coaches from every state there and I can’t thank Matt Pumpa (Racing Victoria Apprentices’ coach) enough for his support.” Eaton is hoping to keep her hot run going and said that it’s great to be back in a busy environment like Mornington. “There is probably about three to four trainers at Stawell and before that, I used to ride at Caulfield so it’s great to be back in this type of environment,” she said. “I’m getting a lot of support from local trainers and they are all going at a good strike rate at the moment, so it helps to get good rides for good trainers. “He’s (Chris Meagher) been really good to me and lets me try and get rides for a lot of other trainers and having that support from a trainer who supports you and lets you take up those opportunities is brilliant.” Eaton currently sits at sixth on the Victorian Apprentice Jockey Premiership with 34 winners for the season.

By Ben Triandafillou THE Southern Peninsula Sharks continued their hot start to the season with victories in round five of the Women’s State Championships and Men’s Division Two at the Hillview Stadium, Rosebud on Saturday 21 April. The Southern Peninsula women (63) narrowly defeated the Sunbury Jets (62) by one point with a Jaz Shelley (27 points, 5 three-pointers made) triple snatching the game for the Sharks’ for a crucial win to move up to fourth on the ladder. The Men’s Division Two side (72) maintained their undefeated run with another win over the Altona Gators (60) at home and remain the only team left in the league to have not lost a game. The Sharks looked right at home from the first quarter and didn’t look like they were in trouble for the rest of the game. Altona didn’t give up though and owned the final quarter 25-18 but it was too late and the deficit was too great for them to come back. Ben James was dominant from long range for the Sharks, sinking seven of his nine three-point shots with Sharks import Colin Voss doing damage inside the key with three dunks. Southern Peninsula Sharks spokesperson Bridie McGuire said both games were great to watch with Voss creating plenty of enthusiasm in the men’s game. “He’s a very exciting player to watch

and the juniors are always on the sideline watching on and love seeing him pull out a dunk,” she said. In Division One Men’s, Chelsea and Western Port both walked away with victories away from home and moved up to second and fourth respectively on the ladder. Melbourne University (73) put up a fight against Chelsea (82) but a 50-35 difference across the bookend quarters proved to be the difference. Brasser (28 pts), Standerfer (24 pts) and Frost (15 pts) scored all but 15 of Chelsea’s points to lead the charge. Whittlesea Pacers (61) suffered yet another loss (3 wins from their last 26 games) to the visiting Steelers side (87). Led by another solid performance from Dylan Travis (28 pts, 12 rbs, 10 ast), the Steelers took out all four quarters on the back of a 48 per cent shooting clip. Western Port Steelers Division One Women’s side looked for their first win for the season but came up short as Warrandyte Venom (72-55) earned their first win instead and the Geelong Supercats (73-39) walked away with a comfortable 34-point win against them on the Sunday. The Chelsea Gulls also played two matches on the weekend, coming away with a win and a loss. The Gulls (69) defeated Werribee (66) in a fight to the finish after starting

on the back foot and trailing by seven points in the opening quarter followed by an 11 point gap heading into the half-time break. The Gulls came out firing in the third to drop 24 points and take the lead by one and managed to keep their noses in front to the final whistle. Chelsea (45) tried to back it up on the Sunday against Whittlesea (62) and while they led the way early on, they lost their legs in the remaining three quarters to give the Pacer’s their fourth win in a row. In Division Two Women, the Mornington Breakers put in two good efforts on back-to-back nights but were defeated on both occasions. Collingwood (68) kept Mornington (46) to single figures in the first two terms and as Collingwood looked to have the win in their sights early in the third, the Breakers stuck with them and fought out the majority of the second half. Despite the result, there were some solid efforts from the home side as Ashleigh Wright scored 13 points, Fiona Darnell racked up a double (11p 14rbs) and Bridget Gamble also claimed a double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Breakers (43) then tried to match it with the Wallan Panthers (78) the following night but the league leaders ran away with a 25 point victory at home. Ashleigh Wright again put in a strong performance with a rebound short of a double and 18 points on the board.

Gulls get up, Venom get first victory State Championship Men

Chelsea 69 def Werribee 66 What a finish it was for the Gulls in this match, coming away with a win by just 3 points. They started on the back foot, trailing by 7 in the opening quarter followed by 11 heading into the half-time break. The Devils looking to be in full control. But the Gulls stepped it up a gear in the 3rd dropping 24 points to take the lead by 1. It was a fight to the finish in the 4th but the Gulls kept their noses in front for the win. Whittlesea 62 def Chelsea 45 The Pacers have made it four wins in a row, taking advantage of a tired Chelsea side. They did lead the way early on, however, lost their legs in the remaining three quarters. This opened the door for the Pacers to swoop in beginning their road to a win at the half-way mark.

State Championship Women

Sth Peninsula 63 def Sunbury 62 The Jets drop another game, this time to a Sharks unit missing a couple of players. The visitors did go in without Elyse Penaluna, but in a tight contest, it was a Jaz Shelley (27 pts, 5 treys) triple that snatched the crucial win. Peyton Little added 15pts for the winners. Some testing times for the Jets as they try to get back on the winner’s list. Orla O’Reilly (14 pts) didn’t have a great shooting night, while Josie Stockill (12 pts) and Sharon Plichta (12 pts) did what they could.

Division One Men

Melbourne Uni 73 lost to Chelsea 82 The Black Angels certainly put up a good fight against the league leaders, but a 50-35 difference across the bookend quarters proved to be the difference. Brasser (28), Standerfer (24) and Frost (15)

scored all but 15 of Chelsea’s points to lead the charge. For the home team, Brandon Armstrong dropped 24pts and Nick Masunda had 17pts. Whittlesea 61 loss to Western Port 87 The lean times for the Pacers continued (3 wins from their last 26 games) with a big loss to the visiting Steelers. Led by Dylan Travis (28 pts, 12 rbs, 10 ast) the Steelers won all four quarters on the back of a 48% shooting clip. Back in familiar territory, Dom Bruno came off the bench to hit 19pts for the Pacers.

Division One Women

Western Port 55 def by Warrandyte 72 One team was going to score themselves their first win of the season and on this occasion, it went the way of the Venom. They were given a handy lead in the opening quarter, the Steelers putting a mere 4 points on the board to the Venom’s 17. The Steelers made up for this in the remaining three quarters but the Venom was doing everything right to keep the game in their hands. The game became a little too close for the Venom in the 3rd so they came out with a 22 to 11 final effort to win by a comfortable margin. Geelong 73 def Western Port 39 The Supercats made it 2 from 2 on the weekend, making easy work of the Steelers on the Sunday. This game was decided at the half-way mark, the Supercats leading the Steelers 45 to 17. The Steelers had no response to the Supercats scoring, struggling with their own in the middle two quarters. Not a good weekend for the Steelers but it was a great one for the Supercats. Chelsea 69 def Werribee 66 What a finish it was for the Gulls in this match, coming away with a win by just 3 points. They started on the back foot, trailing by 7 in the opening quarter followed by 11 heading into the half-time break. The Devils looking to be in full control. But the Gulls stepped it up a gear in the 3rd dropping 24 points to take the lead by 1. It was a fight to the finish in the 4th but the Gulls kept their noses in front for the win.

Whittlesea 62 def Chelsea 45 The Pacers have made it 4 wins in a row, taking advantage of a tired Chelsea side. They did lead the way early on, however, lost their legs in the remaining three quarters. This opened the door for the Pacers to swoop in beginning their road to a win at the half-way mark.

Division Two Men

Southern Pen 72 def Altona 60 There is only one team left that can say they are undefeated and they have maintained their run with another win this time over the Gators at home. The Sharks looked right at home from the first quarter and didn’t look like they were in trouble for the rest of the game. Altona didn’t give up though they owned the final quarter 25-18 but it was too late and the deficit was too great for them to come back from. Altona happily welcomed back James Till this week who helped give the Gators more height on the boards. Division Two Women Mornington 46 def by Collingwood 68 Holding Mornington to single figures in the first two terms, Collingwood had the Win in their sights early in the third, but to their credit, the Breakers stuck with their opponents for the majority of the second half. Despite the result, some solid efforts from the Home side as Ashleigh Wright scored 13 pts, a double 11 pts 14 rbs from Fiona Darnell 11 pts 14 rbs and Bridget Gamble 11 pts 10 rbs. For Collingwood, two players with doubles were Jada Buggs 26 pts 19rbs and Helen Rodan 19 pts 10rbs. Wallan 78 def Mornington 43 The Panthers started to gain momentum in the second term, then fatigue kicked in for the Breakers in the second half on the back of the efforts the previous night as Wallan collected a 25 point win to be on top of the tree after the end of the round. The team in teal maintained their offensive pressure to hold the visitors to single digits in the last two stanzas. For Mornington, Ashleigh Wright again put in a great display and was a rebound short of a double with 18pts. For the Panthers, Megan Marasco scored a game-high 19 pts and Emmie O’Nial again a solid contributor with 14 pts and 8 rbs.
