Rescue pet adoption encouraged IN a time where friends and family have been kept apart, the positive impact of pets on people’s lives has never been more apparent. The team at PETStock Chelsea is encouraging local residents to adopt rescue pets this month. Their inaugural “National Pet Adoption Month” takes place in March. PETstock Assist charity and events lead Jessica Curtis said the event aims to make everyone “think differently about what they can do to help break the cycle of pet homelessness”. “Those who choose to adopt not shop play a critical role in reducing the number of animals in need,” she said. “Not only by providing a loving home and second chance, but also leading by example. Our rescue parents take the time to learn a pet’s unique personality to find their perfect match, they make a long-term commitment, and ultimately, build a relationship that improves a pet’s life and their own.

“After all time high adoption rates in 2020, this year is truly a celebration of these owners and the commitment they’ve made to their animals who we know, are all unique and different, and that’s why we love them.” In the last six years, PETstock Assist says it has helped rehome more than 12,000 pets. AFLW star Sharni Layton is an ambassador for the event. She has adopted three rescue cats, one dog and a horse. “Knowing that I’ve given my cats a second chance at a safe and loving home brings me so much joy,” she said. “The companionship and support that they’ve provided in return, especially throughout 2020 and now during the AFLW season, has made such a positive difference to my life off the field.” To find out more about PETstock Assist’s National Pet Adoption Month visit petstock.com.au.

Bus replacements scheduled again Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON train line commuters are facing two months of bus replacements. More level crossing removals have been scheduled on the Frankston train line. Five level crossings across Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach are expected to be removed by the end of this year. Edithvale, Chelsea, and Bonbeach stations will close for demolition and reconstruction in the middle of the year. Trains will run express through them while works are ongoing. From around September, the line will shut down between Mordialloc and Frankston. Bus replacements will be scheduled for commuters for two months. When the line shuts down, work will be undertaken to create rail trenches, build roads, lay new tracks, and extend Thames Promenade to the Nepean Highway. The state government says that work should be finished by the end of 2021, with the three new stations to open in stages throughout the year. Frankston line commuters faced bus replacements throughout a big chunk of 2020 as well. Buses replaced trains between Moorabbin and Mordialloc stations from 23 May to 20 July. Buses also replaced trains between Mordialloc and Frankston last month while crews upgraded signalling and created the foundations for the new stations.

CREWS working at Bonbeach Station. Picture: LXRP Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson said the end result of the interruptions would be “worth it”. “It’s going to be a busy year and I thank residents and traders for their patience during construction – the end result will be worth it, with more safer and direct links between public transport, local shops, parking and the beach,” he said.

Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “with level crossings already gone for good in Carrum and Seaford, I’m thrilled that Bonbeach is next, making a real difference for our community.” Work is also underway on a multideck car park at Cheltenham Station, which is due to open mid-year. The level crossings at Swanpool

Avenue, Chelsea Road and Argyle Avenue in Chelsea were originally pencilled in to be removed by 2025 before work was rescheduled to this year. The state government says that next year work will continue to build new walking and cycling paths as part of more than 11 kilometres of new paths from Edithvale to Frankston.

Computer class at libraries DIGITAL literacy classes will be held at Dingley Village Library and Chelsea Library this month. The free workshops will teach attendees how to take photographs using their electronic devices, join social media, use Zoom and Facetime, and more. The program begins in March and runs weekly for eight weeks. The program runs at Chelsea Library from 10.30am to 12pm on Mondays beginning 1 March, and at Dingley Village Library from 10.30am to 12pm Wednesdays beginning 3 March. Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said “the COVID-19 pandemic had forced a large amount of community interaction online, leaving some people isolated due to a lack of confidence with digital technology.” “While it has been great to be able to meet together again in person, we know that digital connections are a growing part of our modern world,” he said. “We want to give everyone the confidence and skills to join online events and activities whether it’s video calling friends and family, joining an online book club, listening to music or accessing government services.” One-on-one assistance will be offerred. iPads are available to borrow from the library if you don’t have your own device.

Factory blaze extinguished A FIRE broke out at a Carrum Downs factory last week. Emergency services attended the raging blaze on Concord Crescent just after 11pm on 25 February. Teams from multiple fire stations worked together to fight the fire. A statement on the Carrum Downs Fire Brigade Facebook page read “quick work by the crews prevented the fire from spreading to the adjoining factories, with an aerial appliance from FRV Fire Station 25 Oakleigh

utilised to attack the fire from above.” They were joined by crews from FRV stations 91 Frankston and 90 Patterson River. “With multiple crews in breathing apparatus, the specialist breathing apparatus unit from Bayswater Fire Brigade-CFA, was responded to assist with supplying fresh air for the breathing apparatus. Another specialist appliance carrying rehabilitation gear from Somerville Fire Brigade, was responded and assisted Am-

bulance Victoria crews with health monitoring and rehab. “Additional crews from Skye Fire Brigade (CFA), Mt Eliza Fire Brigade, Noble Park Fire Station, Keysborough Fire Brigade and Edithvale Fire Brigade (CFA) were brought in to support with additional breathing apparatus operators to help with overhauling the fire scene.” Victoria Police and the Environment Protection Authority Victoria personnel also attended.

ATO scams SCAMMERS have been impersonating the Australian Tax Office to steal money. Police say they have seen a rise in scam reports lately. A statement from Victoria Police read “victims have reported receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) or local police, who claim that the victim’s tax file number has been hacked or their account has been involved in fraudulent or criminal activity.” “Offenders ask the victim what their local police station is and to google the number while the offender stays on the phone call. On multiple occasions, the victim has proceeded to do this before providing the scammer with their local police station number. The offender tells the victim that a police officer from that station will call them within five minutes to provide further information. A short while later, someone calls from a number that the scammer has falsified to appear as if someone is calling from the victim’s local police station. “During this call, the scammer informs them they must move all their funds into a secure ATO account while it is investigated. The victim is then contacted again with instructions to withdraw thousands of dollars and lodge them via an ATM into an account. Scammers will most often provide their bank details to victims via encrypted messaging services. The offenders will repeat this process until the victim becomes suspicious or runs out of available funds.”

Police say that one victim handed $5,000 to a scammer in person in a shopping centre carpark in Cheltenham. Suspected scams can be reported at scamwatch.gov.au

Fraudsters wanted TWO people are wanted for allegedly stealing money from businesses. Police allege that on 17 and 18 December last year, a couple gained access to a store account of businesses in Mentone and Airport West. The duo then allegedly changed the account details and made more than $5000 worth of fraudulent purchases. An image of two people police wish to speak to has been released (below). Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or Moorabbin Police Station 03 9556 6565

Bicycle stolen POLICE are searching for two people in relation to the theft of a brand new bicycle on Christmas Day last year. Detectives have been told that a mountain bike was stolen from a Seaford home in the evening on 25 December. CCTV images have been released of two women that police wish to speak to about the theft. They were seen with the bike shortly after it went missing. If anyone recognises the people pictured below or has any information, they can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or make a report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au and quote the incident number 200469446.

St Kilda plans for Seaford future FRANKSTON Council has given St Kilda Football Club in-principle support for its plans at Belvedere Reserve. St Kilda moved into the Seaford ground in 2010, signing a lease which expired in 2059. Despite that, St Kilda had relocated its training facilities to Moorabbin by 2018. St Kilda FC presented a new proposal for the precinct to council in December. Council has agreed to offer in-principle support to the plan, and will put $2.6 million of ratepayer funding into it. The full proposal for the Belvedere Precinct was designated as confidential by Frankston Council. St Kilda Football Club CEO Matt Finnis said the club was “thrilled that our shared vision to create a health and wellbeing hub which delivers services, training and facilities for the Frankston community has been supported by council.” “We’ve been working closely with Frankston City Council for a long time now to reimagine how this unique facility can be refocused to deliver the greatest benefit to the community,” Mr

Finnis said. “Our club continues to have a deep affinity with the area and we’re excited to be playing a leadership role in bring together a host of like-minded organisations to create a new community asset at a time when it’s never been needed more.” Council CEO Phil Cantillon said “our hope is that as well as being used by community groups, council and the club, the precinct will also be occupied by a tertiary health education provider, as well as health care, aged care and disability professionals and a social enterprise café. We will keep the community updated as sub-tenants are confirmed.” Frankston mayor Kris Bolam said recent discussions between council and St Kilda FC had been “productive”. “A design is due to come back to council for final sign off in August and we expect to be in a position to formalise agreements with the club and other parties, to support the activation, at that time,” he said.

JENNA Cuff-Jones and Carole Pattullo are Stepping Out with stories to “celebrate” women of the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Yanni DREAMHOUSE Theatre Company is back to performing this month with Stepping Out - stories of challenge, change and possibility. Produced by Anthea Mackenzie and Carole Patullo, Stepping Out “celebrates the voices, and creative spirit of women living and working on the Mornington Peninsula”. It is a continuation of the story sharing event and verbatim performances that were popular elements in the A Woman’s Place mini-festival, Stepping Out includes a morning tea story-sharing event on Saturday 13 March for 25 women, followed the next day (Sunday 14 March) by a reading of selected stories from the morning tea. Over 24 hours Patullo and Jane Bayly will transcribe and edit stories before presenting a “theatrical reading” with an intergenerational cast, including young women from the Dreamhouse ensemble, professional actors and community members to a live audience. “There is something very powerful about the

act of storytelling; and when those stories come from lived experiences and are transformed into theatre, the response from community is profound”, Mackenzie said. “The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, Choose to Challenge, is quite serendipitous as our event, originally scheduled for March 2020, explores the same idea.” Patullo: “It’s obviously been a very challenging time for people and it’s not a cure all, but theatre has a wonderful capacity to bring people together and to reshape experience through the artistic lens.” Stepping Out - stories of challenge, change and possibility is at the Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, Rosebud, 13 and 14 March. Booking essential for the free story sharing event on 13 March at https://www.trybooking. com/BOROF and $10 for Sunday 14 March https://www.trybooking.com/BOXBD or at the door.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Union allowed to use park for picnic Compiled by Cameron McCullough SOME time ago the Mornington Shire Council refused the use of the local park for picnic purposes to the Sheet Metal Workers’ Union on account of objectionable features at the last two picnics. At the last meeting of the council, the union secretary, Mr. De Gruchy, attended as a deputation, and succeeded in having the embargo lifted. The party has been visiting Mornington since 1885, and the trouble has been caused by a minority, which always will be found wherever a crowd assembles. The union has guaranteed to deal with any of its members who indulge in acts of rowdyism and vandalism. *** “THE Herald”, on Saturday night, boomed Mr. Charlie Milburn, the well-known athlete, as likely to take Jack Donaldson’s place as Victoria’s fastest sprint runner. Mr. Milburn is well known in the Frankston district, and competed unsuccessfully at the last New Year’s Day Sports. He is a Tasmanian by birth, and is undoubtedly one of the fastest of present day sprinters. He is only 22 years of age. Mr. Milburn and Mr. Will Twomey, the speedy Collingwood ‘toeballer, were school mates at St. Monica’s, Heidelberg, and years later they met in the great event at Stawell, when Mr Twomey ran into second place. But Mr. Milburn has won several events since that time. *** SNAKES, apparently, are very plenti-

ful about the local streets lately. On Sunday last one invited himself into Mr. Morris’ house in Playne Street, but was, at a later, stage, duly decapitated by Mr. Lyon. Another was killed opposite the Pier Hotel on Sunday night, another on the foreshore, a couple along High Street, whilst Mr George McLeod secured a 3½ ft. one at his place adjoining “The Standard” office. A few weeks ago one was killed at Mr Walters’ bakery. *** THE schedule for the Somerville Show is now in the course of printing at “The Standard” office, and will be available in a few days, when copies may be secured from the secretary, Mr. S.S. Gault, or at “The Standard” office. The Somerville Show promises to be one of the best events of the year; and the fruit display is likely to be especially attractive. The present indications are that the Fruitgrowers’ Association will surpass all its previous records. The horse events are also likely to be well contested. *** THE State Rivers and Water Supply Commission has made arrangements to levy rates on those now receiving the benefits of the Mornington Peninsula scheme and has fixed the rates at 2/- in the £ at Mornington, and 1/6 in the £ for Frankston and Carrum. These are the prices originally agreed to, and although the cost of material has materially increased in the meantime, the Commission has decided to carry on without any

increase in the amounts previously estimated. *** AT the Dromana Police Court last week, William Weston, aged 24 years, employed on the Bittern Red Hill railways, was sentenced to three months’ imprisonment for attempted criminal assault of a girl, 18 years of age, between Shoreham and Bittern. Weston was arrested at Daylesford by Detective Kingston, and has three prior convictions against him. *** IN a recent cricket match against Mornington, the Hastings XI., who are the champions of the Peninsula won by six wickets and 18 runs. Mornington, batting first, notched 60, the Armstrong of the side being Cr. Griffith, who made 28. Nipper Floyd (3 for 20), Perriam (3 for 12), and Captain Reid (3 for 6) secured the best averages. The latter scored 33 not out, and Hughie Carmichael 10 not out. Hastings closing the innings for four for 78. Pompey Francis and sundries made 12 apiece! *** AT the Investiture at Government House on Friday last, Mr. E.T. Draker received the Imperial Service Order, the Governor-General, Lord Forster, making the investiture. Until recently, Mr. Drake, I.S.O , was secretary to the Public Works Department of Victoria. He has a home at Frankston, and some weeks ago was elected first president of the Long Island Progress Association. ***

COMFORT for all SEASONS

SEASIDE property at Seaford will be offered at auction on Saturday, 9th March, by Messrs J. W. Styles and Son, in conjunction with Messrs Brody and Mason. *** LADIES are requested to meet at the hall next Thursday evening to decide on a special effort for the Frankston Soldiers Memorial Fund. *** MOTOR businesses at Frankston and Mornington are advertised for sale by tender in this issue by the Peninsula Motor Garage Pty Ltd. Tenders close on 4th March. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Mechanics’ Institute has been adjourned till 7th March. *** THE full programme of the Moorooduc Sports, to be held on the 9th March, and organised by the Moorooduc Branch of the V.F.U., appears in our advertising columns. Mr James McLellan is the secretary, and a delightful day’s outing is promised. Patrons are reminded that an early start will be made. *** SHIRE tenders for road works, horses and drays, and firewood are advertised in another column. *** MUNICIPAL cricket teams representing the Shire of Frankston and Hastings and the Shire of Mornington played a friendly game in the local park yesterday, when the locals secured a victory. A detailed report will be given next

issue.

*** THE euchre party and dance held last night in aid of the Alfred Hospital was a great success. Further reference will be made in these columns next week. *** THE monthly meeting of the Frankston Progress Association was held on Tuesday evening last, Mr H. Vicars, (president), presiding. Reference was made to the stray dog nuisance, and it was decided to ask the council to issue metal discs to be fastened to the collars of all registered dogs. Complaint was received relating to the absence of conveniences on the foreshore, and it was decided to ask the council to remedy this defect. Satisfaction was expressed at the action of the council in granting the site near the tennis courts as a bowling green site, Mr S. Lawrey being the only member to voice opposition to the use of the foreshore reserve for the purpose named. *** YESTERDAY a very interesting series of motion pictures were taken of the teachers and scholars at the Frankston State school by the Educational Film Coy., Ltd. These scenes will become part of the big production, “The Education of a Child,” which explains in cinematography the Victorian system from kindergarten to the University. *** FROM the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 25 February 1921

Your hearing questions answered IS it important for patients to see an audiologist if they think they may be having difficulties hearing? Yes, if you are starting to notice difficulties it’s important to have a full hearing test. We don’t just test which sounds you can hear, we also check how clearly you can understand speech, in quiet and in background noise. Some common indications that you may have a hearing loss are: • Turning the TV up • Frequently asking for repeats • Not being able to hear properly on the telephone • Difficulty in noisy situations such as restaurants • Missing out on important parts of the conversation Often your partner or a close family member may be the first person to notice that you are having difficulty hearing. Is it true that a lot of patients don’t actually need hearing aids? Yes. Probably 25 percent of those that we see do choose to get hearing aids. Some people have a little bit of hearing loss that we just need to talk about, and continue to monitor. Are there steps people who aren’t ready for hearing aids can do to help combat hearing loss? Yes. Pick a seat in a restaurant where you can see the faces of the people that you are taking to. This can make it easier to follow what they are saying. With the television, if you’re

not ready for hearing aids, we can get a set of cordless headphones. These can be one of the best options for hearing the TV clearly. Are there ever very simple solutions to hearing loss? Yes. Sometimes a hearing loss can be caused by ear wax blocking the canal. If someone needs a hearing aid, should they always choose the most expensive, top-of-the-line model? Most people don’t need the most expensive hearing aids, fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. It really is patient specific. You don’t always need the absolute top-of the-line hearing aid technology, if the features that you need are available in something less expensive. At Chelsea Hearing, we always offer you a range of options, and it is up to you to choose something that you are comfortable with. You should never feel pressured to proceed with hearing aids that you don’t feel ready for. Are smaller hearing aids more expensive? Generally, the style of the hearing aid does not have very much impact on the price. There are very good, small hearing aids available at all price points. Larger hearing aids are not necessarily less expensive either. The good news is that the very small, comfortable hearing aids are suitable for most people these days. How much do hearing aids cost? Most people who are on a Centrelink pension (such as an age

pension or a disability pension) are eligible for the Office of Hearing Services Voucher program. This enables them to choose from a range of hearing aids that are “free-toclient”. These hearing aids have improved significantly over the past few years, and a lot of people are pleasantly surprised at how natural they sound, and how small and comfortable they can be. Pensioners can also choose to contribute to more expensive hearing aids if they wish. For people who are not eligible for the voucher program, hearing aids typically start at $2,700 for a pair. What brand of hearing aids to you recommend? Chelsea Hearing is an independent clinic. We fit hearing aids from all of the major manufacturers. Our recommendations are made after we have tested your hearing, looked in your ears, and had a discussion about the things that you want to hear well. We also take the time to consider your preference for style and size of the hearing aids, as well as your budget. We will recommend the most appropriate hearing aids for you, and we will always give you a range of options to choose from. What is your philosophy on health care? If I wouldn’t do it for my Mum or Dad, I don’t do it for a patient. When I’m making recommendations for a patient, I think “if this was my mum or dad, with this hearing loss, and

these difficulties, would I be making the same recommendations?”. If the answer is “yes”, then I know I’m doing my best for a patient. What does the relationship you have with your patients mean to you? The patient comes first. The patient is your customer and you want to have the healthiest, happiest patient that you can. That makes me happy as well. To know that we are helping that patient to be happy is just rewarding. What is one thing about your job that really sticks out in a positive way? It’s really nice to be able to make a difference for people. Often the partner of the person with a hearing loss may have been repeating themselves and having to speak louder for years. When we help with a hearing loss (often with hearing aids) it’s often the family members who notice the benefit first. Suddenly they don’t have to repeat everything, and they don’t get so tired from speaking loudly all day. It can make a big difference for the whole family. Do you have rules that you live by when treating patients? My number one rule is to take things at the right pace of the individual patient. Some people come in here, and they know they want to get hearing aids and they want to get it all happening as quickly as possible. Other people come in, and they are having some difficulties hearing, but they don’t

know if they have a hearing loss. They may need a little bit more time to understand their hearing loss, and the options available. It doesn’t help anyone to push someone into getting hearing aids before they are ready for them, or to pressure someone to purchase hearing aids that cost more than they are comfortable with. Sometimes the best thing to do is explain what’s causing the problem, and what solutions are available. It can also be helpful to bring your partner or a close family member to your appointment with you.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Mark Zuckerberg – From Super Geek to Super Villain By Stuart McCullough IT probably seemed like a good idea at the time. What better way to fend off accusations that you have way too much power than by exercising it as capriciously as possible? Like Mr. Burns blocking the sun over Springfield, Facebook decided to make their point as obnoxiously as possible by taking the ‘Pearl Harbour’ approach and disconnecting not only news feeds but anything that stood in its way. If the goal was to make everyone hate Facebook, they succeeded admirably. It’s breathtaking how disconnected from consequence Facebook are. That they were happy to impact not just news organizations but hospitals, government departments, charities and support groups is a pretty spectacular form of skullduggery. Even when they apologized, it came with the kicker that it was really our fault because the term ‘news’ could be interpreted broadly. That is, having made a mistake up there with building the Titanic out of fly wire, they still couldn’t concede they were wrong. This should worry everyone. I’ll admit that Facebook’s cyber-tantrum had little impact on me. I don’t have a Facebook account and get my news from, well, news sources. I have, however, seen the first ten minutes of ‘The Social Network’ so I feel more than qualified to comment on recent events. Better yet, I’ve also seen ‘Star Wars’. I’m not referring to the abominable prequels or the more recent evidence (if it were needed) of the immutable law of diminishing returns. I’m talking about the original Star Wars series in all its bowl haircut glory. In ‘Star Wars’ terms, what Facebook tried to pull off was its ‘fully operational Death Star moment’. I guess that makes Mark Zuckerberg Emperor Palpatine. If there were any lingering doubt as to Mark’s transition to the dark side of the Force, it’s long gone now. Instead of conforming to the laws of the country in which they

operate, companies like Facebook act like Empires or (more specifically) the Empire; blowing up planets, killing Ewoks and throwing Luke Skywalker down a set of stairs. Nasty stuff. We should abandon the idea that companies like Facebook are going to behave the way we expect them to. They won’t. Take tax as an example. In 2019, Google paid almost $100 million in tax in Australia. I know this, because I Googled it. (Touché!) It sounds like a lot until you learn that this amount was paid on $4.8 billion in revenue. The reason they pay so little tax as against their colossal revenue is that they attribute most of it to Singapore. Perhaps they’re confused and think that Singapore is just outside of Moo-

rooduc, but I’m pretty sure that ‘Google Maps’ would clear that up quick smart. Facebook is no different. In 2019, it paid $16.8 million in income tax based on revenue of $167 million. Or, in other words, a hefty ten cents on the dollar. It is, of course, more complicated than that – but it gets worse. The amount of advertising booked exceeded $670 million but most of this isn’t counted towards its tax. That’s because Facebook categorizes itself as a ‘reseller’ of advertising services. I don’t know exactly what this means but I suspect it’s a bit like trying to reduce your tax bill by categorizing yourself as a turnip. It works right up until it doesn’t.

Facebook, Google and other digital giants have been feuding with Governments the world over about the amount of tax they do or, more to the point, don’t pay. That will (eventually) sort itself out. But when Facebook decided to pull the plug in protest against a proposed law that was before Parliament, they went from global mega-corporation to full-on super-villain. While a lot of people have expressed shock, I wasn’t surprised. My only question is: what next? Now that we’re all on the Facebook ‘naughty’ list, it’s hard to know what kind of dastardly action Mark Zuckerberg will take as ‘Project Mayhem’ goes into full swing. It wouldn’t surprise me if Facebook soldered all the shopping trolleys together at the local Woolies before repainting all the parking bays so no one can open their car door. It’s inevitable that they’ll campaign to kick us out of the Eurovision Song Contest because Australia is not in Europe (they know something about geography when it suits them). Perhaps they’ll set up one of their signature ‘fake news’ pages that claims that the Pavlova was invented in New Zealand and not Australia. Having reached the bottom of the barrel, it’s clear that Facebook are determined to keep digging. There is no depth to which they won’t sink. Don’t get me wrong - Facebook has achieved plenty: it broke democracy for starters. But Mark has well and truly jumped the shark this time. The next time we see him, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was wearing a turtleneck and stroking a hairless cat. That’s once he gets back from his weekend playing ‘Pokemon Go’ with Kim Jong Un, of course. Mark, when you read this, take a long hard look at yourself. Unfriend yourself on Facebook if needs be. And then come back to the world where paying for things like content and tax are highly valued. If and when you’re willing to do those things, then consider this my ‘friend’ request. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pines, Carrum, Carrum Downs and Old Peninsula finish top of their tables By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

PINES have closed out an undefeated season with a win over Heatherhill. After being sent in to bat first, Pines put 168 runs on the scoreboard. Pines had multiple players make good starts, but none of them could go on to make big scores. Jack PeaceStirling top scored with 38. Heatherhill’s run chase got off to a shaky start. The top order fell without making an impact, and at 4/43 the side was in big trouble. Middle order batsmen Brett Maxwell and Jake Theobald got things back on track, both recording scores in the forties. The game went down to the final over, but Heatherhill ended up falling just short. They lost their final wicket for 164, five runs short of a win. Below top-of-the-table Pines are Long Island, who only lost one match this season. Flinders and Somerville round out the top four. Main Ridge finished the season last on the ladder, just below Seaford Tigers. Both sides only recorded two wins each this campaign. The Tigers recorded their most impressive win for the season in the last round against Somerville. Chasing a formidable 223 to win, the Tigers’ batsmen were in excellent form. Opener David James was the star, hitting an unbeaten century to earn his side a stunning nine wicket win. James smashed six sixes during his brilliant innings.

DISTRICT

CARRUM have finished on top of the District ladder, despite losing their final game of the season to Hastings. Carrum opener Shaun Foster set his side up well to close out the year with a win. He scored 103 runs to help his side to a final total of 182. Hastings proved up to the task though, managing to wrap up a four wicket win to close out their year. Dromana can count themselves unlucky, only finishing behind Carrum on percentage. Rosebud and Delacombe Park fin-

Goulding goes, O’Connell sees red SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN midfielder Callum Goulding joined leading NPL1 club Bentleigh Greens last week. It is the second time the former Melbourne Victory player has left Lawton Park having joined Box Hill United partway through the 2018 season. Goulding rejoined Langy under Scott Miller for the 2019 season and while there was much angst over his initial departure this time he went with the club’s blessing. “Callum has always expressed his desire to test himself at NPL1 level and the opportunity has presented itself at Bentleigh Greens,” was Miller’s matter-of-fact response. “He has been a big part of what we have built over the last few years so naturally it’s disappointing to lose a player of his quality, however we will work hard continuing to develop the current squad for the season ahead in a positive way.” The match focus last weekend was on the first main round of the 2021 FFA Cup particularly the State 4 South derby between Seaford United and Baxter at North Seaford Reserve. And what a controversial contest this turned out to be with Seaford’s Matthias Schwellinger stretchered off, Baxter’s Charlie O’Connell sent off and confusion over the Cup rules regarding substitutes. Late in the match referee Martin Kowalczyk, Seaford gaffer Peter Schwellinger and his Baxter counterpart George Hughes were seen deep in conversation on the far touchline. By then Baxter was 2-0 down, a man down and had used the only three substitutes on its bench so when Harper Bennell trudged off it was forced to see out the match with nine men. It didn’t make any difference to the scoreline as the depleted Baxter lineup wasn’t a match for Seaford in the final analysis. Two Dylan Waugh goals proved the difference and his partnership with Blake Hicks was a constant problem for Baxter and one it failed to solve. But while Seaford progressed in the

Cup it paid a very heavy price. Schwellinger suffered a broken leg in two places, Jack Carter has a suspected broken ankle and was waiting on x-ray results, Mitch Lander had to be replaced due to a hamstring injury and Adam Martin has a badly swollen ankle after a heavy challenge. Five minutes of mayhem in the first half summed up this contest. Baxter attacking midfielder Nat Daher was forced off injured in the 31st minute and replaced by Bennell. Two minutes later Schwellinger and O’Connell challenged for the ball. O’Connell was late and left Schwellinger crumpled on the pitch and screaming in agony. Referee Kowalczyk consulted his assistant then surprised many observers by only issuing a yellow card to O’Connell. A further two minutes in and Lander collapsed on the right wing clutching his hamstring. Three minutes into the second half Waugh held off Izaak Barr at the near post following a long throw from Hicks on the right. Waugh spun past Barr then struck the ball past Baxter keeper James Foster into the far corner.

Waugh’s second came in the 66th minute after he broke onto a long bouncing ball and hammered his volley past the advancing Foster for the clincher. A minute later O’Connell was scythed down. Instead of setting up for the freekick he grabbed the ball and thumped it over the touchline. He received a second yellow for his petulance and so ended the Baxter resistance. Somerville was the other local club to progress in the Cup thanks to a 2-1 away win over established State 4 West outfit North Melbourne Athletic. Player-coach David Greening’s men had to come from behind but debut goals from Stephen McInerheney and Naseer Mohammad sealed the win. “We handed debuts to eight players in a match that saw us rediscover some of the ‘Somie’ spirit,” Greening said. “That togetherness and willingness to go into battle for each other was as pleasing as the result.” Chelsea bowed out of the Cup with a 4-2 loss to Darebin United in a con-

test switched to Edithvale Recreation Reserve due to ground availability. All four Darebin goals came from set pieces but one of the positives for the local club was the second half debut of 17-year-old junior Arki Gantzos. “Arki’s a great kid and he scored his first senior goal,” Chelsea head coach Carlo Melino said. Piers Beresford scored Chelsea’s other goal and Darebin led 2-1 at half-time. The draw for the second round of the Cup was made yesterday (Monday) and was streamed online on Football Victoria’s Facebook page. Frankston Pines was included in the draw. Next Monday (8 March) Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Skye United enter the draw. There was a high-scoring result in one of last week’s local friendly matches. Peninsula Strikers beat Somerville Eagles 9-0 at Centenary Park last Tuesday with goals from Riley Anderton (3), Ben Doree (2) Sam Luxford and Abbas Yaqobi. With apologies to Aaran Currie and Danny Brooks there were also two own goals. Langwarrin beat Mornington 1-0 in a friendly at Lawton Park on Saturday. A Sam Orritt goal early in the second half proved the difference. Langwarrin was missing Marcus Holmes, John Maclean and Wayne Wallace but Tom Youngs returned and Isaiah Joseph came off the bench. While boom Mornington recruit Milos Lujic didn’t play both Josh Hine and Josh Heaton had valuable game time.

Mount Martha defeated FC Noble Hurricanes 2-1 at Civic Reserve on Saturday. The home side’s goals came via a cracking 25-metre free kick from Tom Faska and a low drive from the edge of the box by Jett Higgin. Jack Morgan made his Mount Martha debut at right back. The 26-year-old is a former Baxter and Hampton Park player. Other friendly match results: Doveton 2 Peninsula Strikers 1 (Shane Tagliaferro), Skye Utd 0 Mazenod 3, Frankston Pines 1 (Tito Vodowaqa) Mill Park 4 (on Saturday), Rosebud 0 Mill Park 4 (on Friday). In other news NPL and State League fixtures were released recently and Langwarrin plays nine of its first 11 games at home including the opening five rounds of the season. Frankston Pines will play home games under lights at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve in Wedge Road with 8.30pm kick-offs after Frankston council changed a 10.30pm lights curfew at the venue to 11.30pm. Pines get the league season underway on Friday 19 March when they host Brighton in a State 3 South-East clash. Meanwhile Facebook took down Peninsula Strikers’ page last week and Peninsula Strikers Junior FC’s page. The club could offer no explanation for the sudden and unexpected move other than being caught up in the crossfire of the recent fight between the American-based technology conglomerate and the Australian government. Both pages were reinstated a few days later. This week’s friendlies: THURSDAY: Box Hill Utd v Langwarrin (Wembley Park, 7.30pm), Mount Martha v HMAS Cerberus (Civic Reserve, 6.30pm & 8.30pm) SATURDAY: Mornington v Caroline Springs George Cross (Dallas Brooks Park, 3pm & 5pm), Peninsula Strikers v Keilor Park (Centenary Park, 1pm & 3pm), Falcons 2000 v Skye Utd (Latrobe City Stadium, 1pm & 3pm), Mount Martha v Keysborough (Civic Reserve, 1pm & 3pm).

Tycoon Humma continues unbeaten record HORSE RACING

Perfect record: Tycoon Humma wins the Listed Very Special Kids Plate at Flemington on Saturday 27 February. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou JOHN McArdle’s promising filly Tycoon Humma has kept her unbeaten record intact with an impressive win at Flemington on Saturday 27 February. The half-sister to McArdle’s Group Three winning sprinter Humma Humma showed a fine turn of foot to win the Listed Very Special Kids Plate at her second start. Mornington-based trainer John McArdle hinted at sending the exciting two-year-old out to the paddock after beginning her career in perfect style. “She’s a nice filly. She’ll probably be looking for the paddock now. She over-raced a bit today and Jamie (Mott) did a great job and just switched her off. She was a bit untidy out of the gates but he got her to settle as well as he could. She probably wasn’t as electric as what she was first-up but it was a really solid win,” he said post-race. Following the win, McArdle compared the two talented sisters believing that Tycoon Humma might

be showing more promise at the early point of her career. “This filly’s probably a bit better. She’s probably got a little bit more quality to her but if she ends up having a career like Humma (Humma) then we’ll be more than happy,” he said. “This filly’s probably a bit stronger than what Humma was at the same age.” Humma Humma kicked off her preparation later on the card in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap (1000m). The five-year-old mare rattled home to finish third beaten a length behind the Tiarnna Robertson-trained Fabergino signalling positive signs ahead for the rest of her preparation. McArdle said the mare will take plenty of improvement from her firstup performance. Continuing the family connection, McArdle purchased the Zoustar halfsister (lot 87) to Tycoon Humma and Humma Humma at the Inglis Premier Sales on Sunday 28 February for $600,000.
