Internet rollout ‘war zone’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A “NATION building” infrastructure project has been accused of leaving a trail of destruction in its wake through Kingston. The rollout of the national broadband network internet by NBN Co has been slammed by councillors at King-

ston Council’s latest public council meeting. It emerged that utilities companies are citing “emergency works order” provisions to avoid the need to inform council about the NBN rollout. Cr Georgina Oxley said NBN Co contractors have been turned up to do major street works without notifying residents in the weeks beforehand and have left footpaths and nature strips in

an “unacceptable” condition. “The NBN works that are going on, particularly in South Ward, have been nothing short of what I would call a disaster,” Cr Oxley said at the 28 May meeting. She said NBN contractors were rude to Chelsea residents who questioned street and driveways access suddenly being blocked by work vans and the installation works.

“They were basically told in foul language that can’t be used in this chamber to basically move on,” Cr Oxley said. “They were told ‘but you’re getting NBN so you should be happy’.” Residents in Chelsea, Bonbeach and Carrum have contacted council in recent weeks to complain about the state of footpaths after contractors moved on to their next installation job.

“The residents are blaming council for these problems, and probably for once, it’s not our fault,” Cr Oxley said. She said the federal government and NBN Co should “be held accountable” for any repair works. “Our residents should not have to suffer through this botched rollout … and should not be footing the bill.” Continued Page 5

Public to be filmed at council meetings

Council meetings unedited Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au VIDEO recordings of public Kingston Council meetings have not been tampered with in any way, the mayor Cr Steve Staikos says. The mayor responded to allegations made in Parliament by Liberal state Upper House MP for the South Eastern Metropolitan Region Inga Peulich last month by writing to the Victorian Legislative Council asking that the parliamentary record be corrected. In wide-ranging criticism of Kingston Council, made under parliamentary privilege on 7 March, Ms Peulich said: “The City of Kingston appears to be perhaps a little lacking in openness in relation to the public record of its council meetings.  “Audio recordings have been removed from proceedings, and councillors have been referring to secret meetings being held, even though we know that caucusing is unlawful under the act by inference.” The mayor Cr Steve Staikos wrote to the Victorian Legislative Council demanding a right of reply be lodged on the parliamentary record but it was rejected by the VLC. “I am able to advise you that no editing of Kingston’s live stream videos of archives footage has taken place,” Cr Staikos said in the letter.

MP Inga Peulich

“Kingston receives the live feed recording from an external company and makes no changes to the files.” Ms Peulich called for the Labor state government to send a monitor in to Kingston Council. A municipal monitor was sent to Frankston Council late last year for an expected 18-month term to report back to Victorian Local Government Minister Marlene Kairouz about any “governance concerns”. Ms Peulich said in Parliament she is concerned about a majority of councillors voting for a notice of motion “which would prevent a Liberal candidate who was a councillor from performing his duties”. Cr Geoff Gledhill is the Liberal Party’s candidate for Mordialloc at November’s state election. A 5-4 majority of councillors in March voted to ban councillors standing as state or federal candidates from debating or voting on matters men-

tioned in election campaign material (“‘Clamp down’ on candidates”, The News 10/3/18). Ms Peulich said she believed the motion “is unlawful”. “It certainly would not stand up to any government scrutiny,” she said in parliament. “We need a monitor to get these people under control.” Victorian Legislative Council president Bruce Atkinson, also Upper House Liberal Eastern Metropolitan Region MP, said Cr Staikos’ right of reply was not accepted since it did not meet parliamentary Standard Orders requirements. “It didn’t outline how Cr Staikos as an individual had been adversely affected in reputation,” Mr Atkinson said. “The comments made by Mrs Peulich in proceedings made no mention of Cr Staikos.”

JUNE LONG WEEKEND

PEOPLE attending Kingston Council meetings will be filmed in future after some councillors voiced safety concerns in the wake of “disgraceful behaviour” at some meetings last year. Pointing a CCTV camera at the public gallery section of the council chamber during meetings was suggested at the latest council meeting on 28 May by Cr Georgina Oxley. Councillors unanimously backed the proposal. “There have been complaints that people who have attended have not felt safe in our gallery,” Cr Oxley said. “I think there’s been a number of altercations where people have felt quite threatened in our public gallery.” The South Ward councillor said she had felt threatened at a meeting last year. “There was an altercation even with myself where I was threatened by a member of the gallery,” Cr Oxley said. Cr Tamara Barth said people expected to be filmed going about their day every day anyway. “Ordinary people operating in society have an expectation that they will be filmed, whether it’s using an ATM, crossing a busy road or going into certain luxury shops and banks,” she said. “There are probably multiple times a day we’re recording going about our business and that’s fine.” Cr Tamsin Bearsley said she was comfortable backing the CCTV camera being pointed at the public gallery

since the footage would not be publicly viewable or accessible. Cr Bearsley said “the sound quality is unlikely to capture individual conversations” and only law enforcement agencies would be granted access to footage if necessary. Cr Geoff Gledhill said no-one had complained to him about feeling threatened but he also supported the filming of the public gallery. “We are all used to CCTV and being filmed,” he said. Cr Rosemary West noted there had been heated arguments during debates last year at council meetings about building the final part of the cycling and walking Bay Trail from Mentone to Mordialloc. “There was some disgraceful behaviour in the gallery last year,” she said. Cr West also noted councillors’ conduct had improved since council started streaming video of meetings live online with archived footage of public meetings available to view on council’s website.

Protecting the bays THE Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute has a grand plan to improve and maintain the health of Port Phillip and Western Port bays. This week the DRI launches its “i sea, i care communities” project which, according to the institute’s executive director Jeff Weir “invites the five million of us living around the bays to commit to simple actions that will help to protect our marine treasures”. “If we can get only a fraction of us always picking up after our dog, reducing what we allow to drip, drop or blow into streets which is then flushed into the bay, then we will make a difference,” Mr Weir said. “i sea, i care communities is also about sharing stories about our wonderful bays and great things that many groups in the community are doing.

Police patrol

Bank job DETECTIVES are looking for a man after an attempted armed robbery at a Mordialloc bank in January. Police want to talk to a man, right, who walked into the Commonwealth Bank near the Nepean Highway and Bear Street intersection just after 3.10pm on Wednesday 10 January. He is of Caucasian appearance and was wearing a dark-coloured bicycle helmet with a red, white and blue scarf wrapped around his face. The man also wore a white t-shirt, an orange high-vis vest, dark coloured shorts and dark runners, with a white glove on his left hand and a yellow and green kitchen glove on his right hand. Anyone with information should contact

Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report to crimestoppersvic. com.au online.

Everything and the kitchen sink Police are appealing for public help after a kitchen sink was stolen during a burglary in Beaumaris last month. Police have been told a man, right, entered a residential address under construction on Morey Road sometime between 5pm on 18 May and 6pm on 20 May. While inside, the man has removed a kitchen sink and pool pump. Glen Eira Bayside Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating and have released an image of a man who they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries. The man of Caucasian appearance and is

about 40 to 50-years-old with receding red hair, a moustache and goatee. He was wearing a blue dress shirt and blue jeans. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic. com.au online.

NBN rollout condemned Continued from Page 1 Cr David Eden said Bonbeach has been described as “a war zone” and people in wheelchairs have complained wheels are getting stuck in uneven footpaths. “There are a lot of people concerned about the works and the way it’s being rolled out.” Cr Geoff Gledhill said “obviously, it is not acceptable” and noted a gas supplier had left “similar problems” behind in Mordialloc and Parkdale when installing high-pressure gas pipes. Council city assets and environment master of management general manager Daniel Freer confirmed there “is a formal protocol” for major utilities companies to meet monthly with council and advise when major works will be done but increasing such companies use “emergency work orders” provisions so council is not notified. NBN Co representative Tony Brown said the company is working with council “to address issues arising from the deploymnent of the NBN network in the area”, New fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC) technology, delivering speeds of about 100Mbps is being installed in the area, NBN Co said. “However, whilst building FTTC will give local residents access to top-class broadband the reality is that taking new fibre optic cabling to the front of each premises does require a very significant level of civil works.” Kingston Council will write to federal Communications Minister Mitch Fifield to flag its concerns about the NBN rollout.

Beware scammers POLICE have warned residents about scammers pretending to be from a government agency, including police. They said the scammers’ aim to scare victims into parting with money or personal information, threatening them with fines, taking them to court – even deportation. Those contacted unexpectedly and threatened by someone who says they’re from a government agency or trusted business, should always consider the possibility that it may be a scam – then stop and check if it’s for real, the police said.

Boardwalk opens new views at Point Leo Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au IN the end, it took just one cut with the scissors for the beach at Point Leo to be more accessible to the public. The ribbon cutting by former Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula president Jenny AnglissGoodall signaled the official opening on Saturday 26 May of a new boardwalk, viewing platform and ramp to the beach. The viewing platform enables sightseers and lifesavers, for the first time, to stand on a level surface to see from one end of the beach to the other. The 82 metre long “boardwalk” is made of fibreglass grating supported on a timber frame and poles. It crosses a gully between two sand dunes and passes through some coastal vegetation before arriving at the viewing platform overlooking the sea and beach. The boardwalk is the result of a project envisioned by the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula, the Point Leo Foreshore Committee and the Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club. The project goes back to 2015, when Bill Hallett and John Bowers (now DSAMP president), Andrew Gibson (PLSLSC) and Tony Walkington (PLFSC) decided that a boardwalk would improve access to the beach. In consultation with experienced locals like Phil Trigger, the future path of the boardwalk was set. “The partners had several objectives: to provide better beach access

for all people including an ageing community, mothers with prams and people with a disability, maintaining a less cluttered access to beach for lifesavers and emergency equipment, and to improve safety with a viewing platform with uninterrupted views along the whole beach for the lifesav-

ers,” Mr Bowers said. The DSAMP was formed in 2011. Money was raised, equipment bought and a call made to volunteers to be trained to help out. For the past six years that call has continued to be answered twice a year by hundreds of volunteers who come to Point Leo to

give a surfing experience to an ever growing number of people who want to have fun in the surf. The lifesaving club lets the DSAMP use its clubrooms on surf days and beach tents and food are provided to volunteers and surfers alike. “The advantage of the boardwalk

to DSAMP is the ease of returning surfers to the change facilities in bypassing the steep sand dune from the beach,” Mr Bowers said. “With the opening of the boardwalk, observation deck and access ramp, the DSAMP can keep putting smiles on dials.”

Watch out: the whales are coming AMATEUR whale spotters are being called on to provide data on the number of whales swimming past the Mornington Peninsula. With the help of these citizen scientists the Two Bays Whale Project was last year able to estimate that 458 individual whales were seen in and around the peninsula and Port Phillip and Western Port bays. The project has been running since 2015 in collaboration between the Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute and Wildlife Coast Cruises. Experts list the best land-based whale observation points in the Two Bays region as being Barwon Bluff; Port Phillip Heads; Cape Schanck; The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock and Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island; and the Bass Coast. “The 2017 whale season broke all previous records with a total of 218 validated sightings of four whale species between 15 May and 5 December. In total the estimated number of individual whales was 458, which is a whopping 296 more whales than the 2016 season estimate,” project co-founder and curator David Donnelly said. “Whether this is a case of more whales, more people looking or a combination of both is yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure, whales never fail to attract the attention of the public.” Mr Donnelly said sightings of large whales in the bays and along the open coast “have become so regular in the winter months that it is now more of an expectation rather than a novelty to see a whale at this time of year”. He said whale watchers on high coastal vantage points could expect to see migrating humpback whales with less frequent sightings of southern right and killer whales. “With a good set of binoculars, whale watchers should be looking for the characteristic blow to first pinpoint whales,” Mr Donnelly said. “Careful observations may permit behaviours and directions of movement to be noted.

It can be very difficult, even for experienced observers to be sure about numbers, but an estimate is helpful. Record date, time, numbers, location as well as you can pinpoint – such as 500 meters south east of Cape Schanck - direction of travel and behaviours.” He said understanding whale numbers and movements is critical to their management and protection. “But it is a huge challenge, taking decades of piecing together snippets of data, to create a reliable understanding about the lives of these remarkable visitors in our waters. “Humpbacks are most likely passing through our waters on their northerly migration from Antarctica along the eastern Australian coast. Hunted to the edge of extinction during the industrial whaling era, humpback whales have made an impressive comeback, with eastern Australian numbers expected to reach around 33,000 individuals this year. This is quite remarkable when you consider the post whaling population estimate to be only 200 – 400 individuals.” Mr Donnelly said southern right whales – classed as threatened - come to the Two Bays area to mate and give birth. “These animals are from the southeast Australian population with numbers estimated to be between just 250 and 300 individuals with no noticeable increase in population size since whaling ceased.” Penalties apply for deliberately approaching a whale closer than 200m for vessels; 300m for jet skis; 500m height for aircraft (including drones). For details of Two Bays, including the 2017 report and to report sightings, go to dolphinresearch.org.au and select “report sightings”. Keith Platt

Colourful show of mental health support A DOCTOR at Frankston Hospital launched the second annual #CrazySocks4Docs day on Friday (1 June). Dr Geoff Toogood started the campaign to encourage doctors, medical students and health professionals worldwide to wear zany and bright socks to support doctors’ mental health. Medical professionals who don crazy socks are encouraged to publish photos using the #CrazySocks4Docs hashtag to show doctors dealing with depression are not alone and should speak up for help. Dr Toogood, a Beaumaris resident, started the campaign last year after his own experiences with mental illness. “The purpose of #CrazySocks4Docs is to raise awareness about mental illness in the medical profession and also to get doctors to start talking about it,” he said. “Having a conversation with your friends, family or colleagues about your mental health is the first step. Doctors need to look after each other so that we can look after everyone else.” Peninsula Health executive director of medical services Dr Tim Williams said doctors’ mental health “is extremely important”. “Peninsula Health is working to ensure our medical staff have access to all the support they need not only to provide world-class care to patients but also to look after their own mental wellbeing.” Support and information about suicide prevention can be obtained at Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.

Councils united for football team Brodie Cowburn team@baysidenews.com.au THE world game at its highest level in Australia may be coming to the southeast region. Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils have both thrown their support behind a regional bid to start a professional A-League football team. The bid, codenamed “Team 11”, is one of 15 lodged to gain a license for entry into Australia’s top football league. The bid, launched in June last year, is designed to represent the whole of the south-east Melbourne region, playing games out of a planned $170 million

stadium next to Dandenong Station. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne said that the aspiring club, vying for entry into both the ALeague and the W-League for women’s players, would be beneficial to the peninsula. “Mornington Peninsula Shire supports Team 11 and the movement to bring an A-League team to south-east Melbourne. This would bring significant social and economic benefits to not only the peninsula but all of southeast Melbourne,” Cr Payne said. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said a successful bid would have a widespread positive effect in the region, highlighting the potential chances it could provide to local soccer players.

“Frankston City Council recognises the significant social and economic benefits that an A-League W-League and National Youth League team would bring to south-east Melbourne, and the opportunities for growth and development it would bring to clubs and participants in the region,” Cr Hampton said. The Team 11 bid team is currently evaluating grounds across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula that would be suitable to host preseason and youth games featuring the expansion club. Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire join the councils of Knox, Monash, Baw Baw Shire, Bass Coast Shire, South Gippsland Shire, Latrobe and Wellington Shire in contributing

club to establish a youth setup with a focus on giving opportunities to young players from the south-east Melbourne region. If successful, the club would enter the A-League competition at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season. One of the other bidders for the coveted new A-League team licence is a Belgravia Leisure bid led by company founder Geoff Lord, former chairman of Melbourne Victory. Belgravia Leisure took over dayto-day management of five peninsula sports and leisure centres late last year from Mornington Peninsula Shire council, on a five-year deal with ratepayers set to pay the company more than $5.7 million in management fees.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

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 theline 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-to-client”. 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.

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 in to 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.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Commemorative trees planned Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A MEETING of the Frankston residents was held on 17th September, 1917, to decide upon a site on which to plant an honor avenue of trees, to commemorate the self–sacrifice and bravery of each true Frankstonite, who heard the call of his country in distress, and who hurried across the seas to stand in the ranks with the men of our dear Motherland, side by side with the just nations of the earth to stop the enemy in their dream of world supremacy. After the most painstaking deliberation and exhaustive discussion of the suitability of the various roads leading into the town, it was decided that only the very best road was worthy of being honored by a memorial to our very best men. The citizens who arrived at this most commendable decision were conscious that the selection of the best site meant the desecration of the resting place of many dead and dying native trees, the loss of the gnarled beauty of the shady ti-tree, the twittering of the early morning birds and the disturbance of the soft carpet of moss, bespangled with dew—all so dear to us in our idle moments of self indulgence. But the same citizens were also conscious that but for the self– sacrifice of our noble boys the twittering of birds might even now give place to the shreiks of our loved ones, and the moss be bespattered with the blood of those who would vainly defend them. As our heroes stand out distinct

from the rest of us, so shall their respective trees stand out, erect in the sunlight, and dressed as on parade; and the tree selected is the best of our own dear eucalypts, whose beautiful and wonderful value, like our boys’ superb courage, is known throughout the world. *** “THE pleasure of suffering for others” was practised by the children of the Frankston school during a self-denial week which ended on the 1st June. The movement was initiated by the Education Department to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross. As the total of the little ones’ pennies for this school was £5 12 4½, a substantial sum should be contributed by the whole State to this most worthy object. *** THE matron and staff of St Pancras private hospital, Frankston, are holding a Red Cross sale at the hospital on Wednesday next, June 12th, in aid of the Red Cross funds. The sale will be opened at 2.30pm by Mrs Jas. Grice. Afternoon tea, for the modest sum of 3d, will be provided. Admission is 3d, and it is to be hoped all who can will attend, and help swell the funds. *** SEE yourself as others see you. The Pageant of Loyalty picture (Frankston Procession) will be shown in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall at 8pm sharp this evening. Back seats are 2s. and there are a limited number of front forms at 1s.

We advise readers to secure their seats early for a record house is expected. The object is such a worthy one patrons will in a small way reciprocate the great support given to Frankston by the Langwarrin Military Band and Orchestra. *** MR H. Shepherd and family desire to thank their many friends for their expressions of sympathy, floral tributes, etc. in their recent bereavement, especially the Rev. Rymer, Dr Atkinson, and Nurse McCoy. *** UNTIL recently the Frankston “Wattle Club” has been greatly hampered in its work of entertaining our wounded soldiers owing to lack of tables. Thanks to Mr Chas A. Tait of Frankston the table problem has now been solved. Mr Tait went personally to several timber merchants in Melbourne and pointed out to them the good work the “Wattle Club” is doing, and their urgent need for assistance towards obtaining tables. In consequence of Mr Tait’s representation two firms, (Messrs Beauchamp and Anthony) rose to the occasion and supplied Mr Tait with sufficient timber to make the tables required. Mr Tait had the timber sent to Langwarrin Camp where, owing to the courtesy of Major Conder and his staff the timber was speedily converted into serviceable tables and delivered free of cost at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall

on Saturday morning last. Within a very few minutes of their arrival the new tables were loaded with all kinds of eatables, in readiness for 250 wounded soldiers who arrived that day and were entertained by the “Wattle Club”. *** A PRELIMINARY meeting of shareholders of the Somerville Co-operative Cool Stores Society Limited will be held at the hall, on Monday, 17th June, at 8pm. The business will be to authorise the registration of the society; to elect members of the committee; to adopt rules of the society, and to transact any other business that may arise. *** AN enjoyable dance was held to the Frankston Mechanics’ on Saturday evening last, under the auspices of the “Wattle” Club. There was a good attendance, and the music supplied by Mr Meeking left nothing to be desired. Mr E. C. Ryan acted as M. C. in an efficient manner. ration on this occasion. *** A NUMBER of returned wounded soldiers were entertained by members of the “Wattle” Club on Saturday last. The hall was nicely decorated, and a liberal display of bunting was made in the streets and in front of the hall. A large number of residents assembled to greet the soldiers and a series of pictures were taken by a cinematograph operator while the cars were arriving, and afterwards in the hall. A very liberal supply of eatables

was provided, to which the visitors did full justice. Hearty cheers were given for the Wattle Club, the Volunteer motor corps, and for the soldiers. Songs rendered by Miss Cole and Mrs Aitken were greatly appreciated. *** THE friends of Mr J. Peebles, of Frankston, will be pleased to hear that he is recovering from his rather serious indisposition. We trust he will have a speedy and complete restoration to health. *** THE local branch of the Red Cross Society will hold their annual meeting in the Tyabb Hall on Wednesday evening, 12th, June. The secretary (Mrs Mair) will submit the balance sheet and report, showing a detailed account of the huge amount of work that has been turned out by the ladies and the way the subscribers’ money is spent. The committee desire a large attendance of the public who we trust will give their support by turning up and encouraging the workers in their strenuous efforts. The election of officials will also take place. At the meeting held last Saturday it was decided to hold the next social on Friday, 28th inst. *** MR B R. King, nurseryman of the district, has enlisted for active service abroad, and will go into camp shortly. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 8 June 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Barbecue Shape I’m In By Stuart McCullough I’LL admit I watch them; those cooking show where all the contestants have a ‘story’ that involves overcoming incredible odds to defy adversity only to emerge, phoenixlike, from the ashes while wearing a cooking apron and clutching a spatula as though it were the very sword of Damocles itself. These people are presented as so much more than mere contestants on a cooking show. They’re players in life’s great drama, inching ever closer to their manifest destiny one compote at a time. All them are on a journey, even if that journey is simply to dessert. My favourite bit is the heirloom recipe. This is the dish the contestant was taught to make by his grandmother who, inevitably, was a one-legged goat-herder that grew up sheltering under a piece of cardboard with thirty siblings before lifting herself up by the bootstraps she undoubtedly was too poor to own and who shuffled off this mortal coil just moments before the cameras started rolling. These recipes are so much more than food on a plate. They’re a glimpse into the soul of the person who made them. With instructions that were scribbled down on the back of a betting slip while under cannon fire during a Napoleonic war, these are dishes that survived for generations. When a contestant cooks an heirloom recipe, he’s not serving a meal; he’s presenting a legacy. It got me wondering: what’s my heirloom recipe? What’s my legacy

PAGE 14

dish that’ll make the judges get a little bit teary and prompt them to say that a long-departed relative would surely be proud of me? The Irish side of my family are better bakers than cooks. So far as I could tell, Irish cooking mostly involved boiling things until the colour was completely vapourised and the original ingredient could only be identified by its dental records. If I’m being honest, my heirloom

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 6 June 2018

recipe isn’t overly fancy. It doesn’t involve me making my own pasta dough using a thimble-full of unicorn tears as the special ingredient or a sponge cake baked during the vernal equinox for optimal fluffiness. For crying out loud, it doesn’t even require me to make my own shortcrust pastry while-- blindfolded and holding a frog in each hand. Not at all. My legacy dish is surprisingly

simple: barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. I know what you’re thinking. Even though the words ‘that doesn’t sound like a competition dish’ are almost certainly on your lips, at the same time you feel suddenly hungry. That’s because no one can resist the lure of barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. It was my father’s go-to dish. Every night when he’d arrive home from work, he’d whip up a plate of barbecue shapes, with cheese and cabana and wash it down with a small glass of sherry. This was no mere appetizer. It was the height of sophistication in a family that, broadly speaking, was afraid of heights. I’m surprised when I glance through a menu to not find it. If that sounds absurd, I’ve encountered a range of childhood favourites in a restaurant setting including something that claimed to be a ‘Wagon Wheel’ but ended up being some kind of deconstructed monstrosity. To be fair, it kind of tasted like a Wagon Wheel but it looked like something Picasso might have made. As a kid, I never thought the only thing that’d make a Wagon Wheel taste better was if it’d been baked by a cubist. I’ve seen a ‘Cherry Ripe’ once on a dessert menu but was afraid to order it in case it was Salvador Dali’s shift in the kitchen. Last week, my wife was putting together a plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana. I don’t know if she’s practicing for MasterChef or just being thoughtful but she rang me on the way home to query the recipe.

Specifically, she wanted to know if she should place the cabana on the biscuit, followed the cheese. It’s funny how the small things can pretty much make or break a recipe. What my wife didn’t realize that by proposing to put the cheese on top rather than sandwiched between the other two items, she was casually suggesting the kind of heresy that got Joan of Arc into tonnes of trouble. Patiently, I explained that it was always a matter of placing the cheese on top of the biscuit before adding the cabana. Thinking that was the end of it, I was shocked when my wife suggested that her way would, in all probability, be much better. Doing all I could to remain composed, I politely indicated that putting the cheese on last would result in a hors d’oeuvre with a cheese hat that’d insult everyone. But she insisted. She was sure the folks from MasterChef would agree. It was a big claim coming from someone whose heirloom dish is Chicken Tonight. The weird thing is, I can’t eat barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana without thinking of my family. That may sound absurd, but the very sight of it transports me back to another time. It’s funny how little it takes to evoke such nostalgia. It’s funnier still how little it takes to make me feel quite peckish. As soon as a finish writing this, I think I-- might make myself a snack. A plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana would do the trick quite nicely. I’ll be sticking to the original recipe. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sorrento’s narrow escape secures top spot DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have maintained their spot on the top of the MPNFL Division One ladder with a thrilling two-point victory over Edithvale-Aspendale on Saturday. The highly anticipated clash between the league’s first and third placed teams took place at Sorrento’s David Macfarlane Reserve, and it was the home side that came rushing out of the gates with a strong first term. Despite looking the stronger team with a two-goal lead at the first break, it took no time at all for Edithvale-Aspendale to work their way back into the contest, thanks in part to their accuracy in front of goal. The game remained close throughout the rest of the day, but it was Sorrento who had their noses in front at the finish line. Sorrento’s Nick Corp put on a match-winning performance for his side, with his four goals helping Sorrento to a 12.14 (86) to 13.6 (84) win. In the round’s other high profile clash, it was second place taking on fourth place as Frankston YCW hosted Mt Eliza at John Coburn Oval. The normally dominant Frankston YCW were reeling from a run of two straight losses and would have been keen to set the record straight and reclaim top position on the ladder with a big win against a strong opponent. After a tight first quarter, the game looked set to be a high scoring and even contest. Each side kicked five goals apiece as Mt Eliza held a narrow lead at the first break. After quarter time, Mt Eliza overran their highly fancied opponents, establishing a 14 point lead at the half-time break. Frankston YCW didn’t let Mt Eliza run away with the game though and remained within touching distance.

Faced with overcoming a seven-point deficit in the final quarter, they were far from down and out. Despite showing signs of fight, the comeback was not meant to be, as Mt Eliza kicked away to secure a comfortable 19-point win to take them to second place on the ladder. Jordan Moncrieff continued his sterling form this season with a best on ground performance for Mt Eliza, kicking two goals and contributing well around the ground. With their next game being against top of the ladder Sorrento, Frankston YCW find themselves staring down

the barrel of four consecutive losses, an unprecedented run for the champion side. A bad loss in that game could see them slip as low as sixth by the end of next round. There will be plenty of work to be done in order to get back into the form that is expected of them, as Frankston YCW were left to lick their wounds after an 11.7 (73) to 13.14 (92) defeat. The most impressive performance of the weekend came from Bonbeach Recreation Reserve, as Pines travelled to take on Bonbeach. Both clubs had suffered from inconsistent seasons so far, and at the first

break it was the home side who held a two-point lead. After quarter time, a fire was lit under Pines, who were simply unstoppable from that point on. Former North Melbourne forward Aaron Edwards has only been back from a knee reconstruction for a little more than a month, but you wouldn’t have thought it by watching his performance on Saturday. Edwards put on one of the best individual games from any player in the history of the league, kicking an astonishing 13 goals to punish a miserable Bonbeach side. Edwards’ massive haul took him to top of the goal kicking leaderboard, and

if he continues this form he will be hard to overtake. What looked a promising contest at the beginning eventually turned into a one-sided display of domination, as Bonbeach fell to Pines 8.6 (54) to 24.13 (157). Elsewhere, another intriguing clash was taking place between Seaford and Mornington, in a game which would see the loser condemned to last place on the ladder. With both teams playing for pride, it was a tough and even contest, with the lead changing hands at numerous points throughout the day. The lead at each break in play stood at less than a goal. In the final quarter Seaford had plenty of opportunities to put the game to bed, but let themselves down by kicking just one goal and five behinds. Capitalising on Seaford’s inaccuracy, Mornington were able to kick three goals straight in the final term to run out as four-point winners, 9.14 (68) to 11.6 (72). It was Mornington’s Lachlan Gorka who kicked the major to put his side in front with a little more than a minute to play, which was enough to secure his team the victory. The win is Mornington’s second in a row, which takes them off the bottom of the ladder, a position now occupied by their Seaford opponents. In the final game of the weekend, Rosebud’s disappointing season went from bad to worse as they were easily dealt with at home by the Frankston Bombers. Despite Rosebud holding a one-point lead at quarter time, Frankston quickly established a comfortable lead which would prove to be insurmountable. Frankston’s Jarrad Grant proved influential in the win, booting six goals to help his side to an 8.10 (58) to 15.12 (102) win.

Dromana’s undefeated run threatened DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA’S undefeated start to the year nearly came undone in a scrappy contest at home, as they were almost overrun by a plucky Langwarrin side in MPNFL Division Two action on Saturday. Dromana, who pumped their opposition by over 100 points last week, started well to take a 13-point lead into quarter-time but were put on the back foot as Langwarrin struck back to cut the deficit to just one goal at the main break. The third quarter was all Dromana, but despite their dominance, they couldn’t punish Langwarrin on the scoreboard, as they only scored two goals and six behinds for the quarter. With a 22-point lead in hand going into the final term, Dromana looked on top, but they hadn’t landed the killer blow yet. Langwarrin battled bravely to keep themselves alive, and were much the better team in the last quarter, kicking three goals to one to cut down the lead. Unfortunately for Langwarrin though, as the final siren blew all they had won was respect, with first place Dromana holding on to win 9.15 (69) to 7.11 (53) to keep their undefeated streak intact. The most entertaining contest of the round came out of RJ Rowley Reserve, as Rye hosted Somerville in a clash between two teams looking to stabilise shaky starts to their seasons. The two evenly matched teams traded the lead back and forth, but it was Rye who eventually established a comfortable advantage, leading by 28 points at the 10-minute mark of the final quarter. Needing to overcome a five-goal deficit with-

out much time to play, Somerville had their backs to the wall but didn’t give up the fight. The away team got one back through Justin Allsopp, before quickly kicking another three goals to reduce the lead to one behind with mere minutes left to play. With the contest hanging in the balance, it was Somerville’s Timothy McGenniss who proved to be the hero, as he kicked his third for the game to put his team ahead, which would be enough for them to secure a miracle comeback win 12.15 (87) to 13.15 (93). Playing at home, Pearcedale were keen to make amends for their 100-point defeat to Dromana last week as they faced Red Hill on Saturday. Red Hill though, reeling from their one-point loss to Karingal last week, wanted it more than their opponents, and were absolutely ruthless in heaping more misery on a helpless Pearcedale side. Pearcedale could only manage four goals for the entire afternoon and again were put to the sword in another devastating 100-point defeat. Red Hill’s 12 individual goalkickers tell the story of their comprehensive team performance, with Daniel Allsop named best on ground in the 4.10 (34) to 21.13 (139) win away from home. Red Hill will need to carry this momentum through to their next game, as they are set to take on undefeated Dromana at Red Hill Recreation Reserve next Sunday. Elsewhere, Crib Point were not able to follow up on their first win for the year last week, as they fell to an impressive Chelsea side at Chelsea Reserve on Saturday. Chelsea were impressive right from the start

and went into half-time already ahead by 58 points. Curtis Bywater was among the best for Chelsea, as he kicked three majors to take his tally for the year to 32, just one goal shy of the top of the league’s goalkicking ranks. Mykelti Lefau followed up his impressive five-goal haul from last week with another two goals for his side against Chelsea, but it was little help as Crib Point was comprehensively beaten 16.18 (114) to 4.7 (31). It was also business as usual for secondplaced Karingal, who easily accounted for Tyabb at Bunguyan Reserve. A third quarter which saw Karingal score four goals to Tyabb’s zero proved to be the difference, as the match finished Tyabb 7.6 (48) to Karingal 11.13 (79). Matthew Dimkos was the standout performer for Tyabb, but his five goals were not enough to help his team mount any sort of challenge. At Glover Reserve, the result also went as expected as Devon Meadows took on Hastings at home. Hastings, sitting in fourth place and looking for their third win on the trot following a fourpoint victory against Rye last week, looked set for a challenge during the first quarter. The contest was tough and even, and they went into the first break surprisingly behind by two points. After a slow start, Hastings quickly found another gear and looked much the better team throughout the rest of the day. Led by a four-goal performance from in-form Luke Hewitt, Hastings were able to secure a fairly hassle-free victory 9.10 (64) to 16.16 (112).

Sarwari to Langy, Wieck proves a point SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN coach Gus Macleod says Langy fans have much to look forward to after clinching the signature of attacking midfielder Mehdi Sarwari late last week. The 21-year old previously played with Melbourne City, Dandenong Thunder and Oakleigh Cannons. “He’s a huge signing for us, a very exciting player and I think the fans are going to like what they see,” Macleod said. Langwarrin also received clearances for central defender Lloyd Clothier (Malvern City) and goalkeeper Jeremy Sandoval (South Springvale) and they join Queensland strikers Chris Swain and Matt Heath in a strengthened first team squad. Heath is recovering from osteitis pubis but was able to train freely last week. Clothier and Swain made their senior debuts against Melbourne Victory at Epping Stadium on Sunday as Macleod’s men lost 3-0. A deflected Nicholas Sette strike in the 23rd minute caught Langy keeper Robbie Acs stranded and gave the home side a 1-0 half-time lead. Two minutes into the second half Victory went further ahead thanks to Sette and an injury to Clothier forced him to come off as Langy reshuffled its defensive set-up. Birkan Kirdar outpaced the Langy defence to make it 3-0 in the 61st minute and although the visitors enjoyed their best spell of the game for the next 15 minutes shots from Callum Goulding, Johnny Kuol and Liam Baxter were met by superb saves from Victory keeper Majak Mawith. Langy missed an opportunity to go third in NPL2 East and the defeat adds to the importance of next weekend’s home game against Box Hill United as the local club strives to cement its newfound status in the elite competition. Southern United gained its first point of the NPLW season when it came away from Wembley Park on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Box Hill United thanks to a second-half goal from Bayside United recruit Sarah Wieck. The result ended a run of 13 consecutive losses but with no relegation from the elite women’s competition Southern will continue with its policy of player development. The club expects to move into its new training base at the multi-million dollar Wedge Road sports develop-

ment in Carrum Downs in coming weeks and hopes to use the planned synthetic pitch for matches next year. Southern’s under-12s won 6-1 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher (4), Emilia Ingles and Savannah Lapenta, the under-14s won 1-0 with Rhys McKenna getting the winner, the under16s lost 3-0 while the under-19s lost 4-0. In State 1 South-East news Mornington continued its winning run with a 1-0 home victory over Eltham Redbacks on Saturday. A clever Sam Scott chip in the 70th minute beat Eltham keeper Santo Dell’Aquila only to strike the underside of the bar but Keegan Ziada was on hand to head home from pointblank range. The result narrows the gap between third-placed Mornington and league pacesetters Manningham and Richmond who both lost last weekend. Frankston Pines and Peninsula Strikers continue to flirt with relegation and next weekend’s showdown between the State League 2 SouthEast rivals may prove to be a seasondefining fixture. Pines went down 4-0 away to league leader Doveton who led 2-0 at halftime with goals from Delfin Mosibe Esara and Josh Frame and second-half

goals from Slavisa Saric and Simon Mur sealed Pines’ fate. Strikers lost 1-0 away to Heatherton United on Saturday night, the winner coming from the penalty spot and converted by Michael Gross in the 25th minute. Strikers blew a host of chances and lacked composure up front. To add to their woes they had a great chance to level from the spot in the second half but former Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale saved Ryan Thompson’s conversion attempt. Skye United made it seven wins in a row and sits on top of State 3 SouthEast after its 3-1 home win against Middle Park last weekend. However, the win was soured when influential captain Marcus Collier was stretchered off in the second half with what looked to be a serious knee injury and the club is waiting on results to determine its severity. Skye went ahead in the 42nd minute when Chris Driver’s free-kick found Daniel Attard at the near post and the striker controlled and turned on his left before finishing with a neat strike. Attard got his second five minutes into the second half when a skilful Caleb Nicholes’ flick sent Mohamad Elhassan clear and his left-foot cross found Attard who buried the chance.

F RA N KSTO N FOOTBALL C LU B

Nicholes got on the scoresheet when he bundled the ball over the line from another Elhassan delivery in the 70th minute and although Tommy Fardoe pulled one back for the visitors a minute later the damage had been done. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost its relegation battle with Dingley Stars 2-1 at Chadwick Reserve on Saturday. Seaford had started well but in the 11th minute the home team broke forward and a hopeful shot from Alpy Camuzcu managed to float over new Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou to open the scoring. In the 24th minute, a long ball over the top was controlled perfectly by Jeremy Schwellinger who then sidestepped a defender and slotted calmly passed Dingley custodian Nick Abougelis to make it 1-1. The decisive moment in this contest came in the 88th minute after Dylan Waugh had missed an open goal and from the resulting counter attack substitute Kerem Akyayla got behind the defensive line and rounded Zafiriou to finish into an open net and seal the win for the Stars. Seaford has signed Luke Murray from Frankston Pines and hopes to have him available for this weekend’s catch-up match away to Brighton.

An injury-time strike from captain Bosco Abbasmoi kept Sandown Lions on top of the State 4 South ladder but broke the hearts of Baxter fans in a hardfought tussle at Baxter Park on Saturday. Abbasmoi wore the number 4 strip yet the Sandown teamsheet had no number 4 listed and when this was drawn to the attention of referee Aurel Ioana at halftime he went into the away team dressing room to resolve the issue. He had little choice given that Abbasmoi had given Sandown the lead at the interval with a low strike from the right of the area after Baxter failed to clear in the 22nd minute. But Baxter scored twice early in the second half to charge to a 2-1 lead. Stuart McKenzie levelled in the 49th minute with a low shot from inside the area and when Sandown keeper Liam Chitters could only parry Ben Meiklem’s strike from the right in the 53rd minute big Dan Disseldorp had a tap-in. However, Baxter’s lead only lasted two minutes. Former Skye United player Wumjock Jock played a quick ball forward to Sandown striker Roy Ruea who skilfully chested it down then tapped it past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster to make it 2-2. By now Baxter fans were in full voice and the nearby linesman who had doubled as referee of the reserves match was given a variety of options on how to better use 180 minutes of his life. Then just when it seemed that the home team would hang on for a meritorious point Abbasmoi struck again to settle the matter. Somerville Eagles regained their winning touch when downing Drouin Dragons 4-2 in West Gippsland on Saturday and player-coach Dave Greening now has his side one point off league leader Old Mentonians. Somerville already has five more points than it accrued during the entire 2017 season as it zeroes in on promotion from State 5 South. Strikes from Greening (2), Louis Griffiths and an Ash Scholes header proved decisive. Next weekend is a State League catchup round and there are two local NPL games and two State League games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Box Hill Utd (Lawton Park), Peninsula Strikers v Frankston Pines (Centenary Park), Brighton v Seaford Utd (Dendy Park). SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Heidelberg Utd (Monterey Reserve, U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).

Gulls secure second spot, Steelers end losing streak BASKETBALL

THE Chelsea Gulls have secured their second spot on the ladder with a 17-point victory over third-placed Keysborough Cougars in round 10 of the Big V. The Gulls’ “big three” players, Corey Standerfer, Mitchell Riggs (19 points) and Matt Brasser (15 points) pushed hard to bring up the sides fourth straight victory (91-77) as they pass the half-way point of the season. The star import Standerfer made a huge difference in the clash as he dropped 35 points, 15 rebounds, six assists and three blocks throughout the game. Kieran Mcqueen also hit the board as he bought up his 150th match with a last-second jump shot on the buzzer. It was a mixed emotions match for Mcqueen as his father passed away earlier in the week. Chelsea Gulls’ head coach Peter Caspersz said it was great to see the side continue their winning streak and an even better feeling to see Mcqueen finish the match on a high. “It was nice to get the win for him and to help him through this time,” he said. “Everybody’s energy and input in the match was massive and, without being too confident, hopefully we can keep it going next week.” Western Port Steelers didn’t have the same luck in their matches on the weekend against Melbourne University and the Keysborough Cougars as they suffered a double blow and moved down to fifth on the ladder. The Steelers suffered an upset

loss to the Black Angels (66-74) at home, even though Dylan Travis put in another solid performance with 29 points. They folded again on the Sunday to the Keysborough Cougars (93-81) as they were handed a 12-point loss. In the Women’s state championship division, the Southern Peninsula Sharks came back hard after trailing by as much as 17 points at one stage against the Hume City Broncos. But, the Broncos just managed to withstand the heat and claimed a twopoint victory (74-72) at home. Jaz Shelley (27 points) and Peyton Little (20 points) did as much as they could for the away team. In a change of fortune, the women’s Western Port Steelers claimed their first win for the season after 10-straight losses in division one. The Steelers grasped their opportunity against 10th placed Warrandyte Venom and didn’t let go. The first three quarters were a tussle for the lead but in desperate need for their first win, the Steelers fought hard and finished off with a 23 to 15 final quarter. The Steelers walked away with a three-point victory over the Venom (58-61). Chelsea Gulls, who are still suffering from injuries, faced Hawthorn Magic on the Saturday night and suffered their third straight loss (4769) in the women’s division one. The Magic took the lead from the very start and although putting up a challenge in the third, the Gulls couldn’t make up any ground. The Gulls still hold onto their fifth placing but will face the league leaders Casey Cava-

liers in round 11. In the men’s division two, the Southern Peninsula Saints thrived with the return of Colin Voss to the line-up as they once again sat at the winners table. The Sharks came back with vengeance after suffering a 53-point blowout to the Craigieburn Eagles the week prior, and set up a 15-point victory over the Wallan Panthers (81-66). The Panthers put the pressure on the home side in the opening quarter and snuck away with a three-point lead out of the first break, but by the time the main break came around the Panthers were behind and never recovered. The Sharks pushed their lead out to 21 points in the third but the Panthers bought it back a touch by the end of the game. The Sharks then tried to go on with the job on the Sunday against the Camberwell Dragons but they fell just short as the Dragons snuck away with a four-point win (82-78). Voss was intently covered by the Dragons to try and stop him from repeating Saturday night’s effort which left the Sharks’ Corey Bond open to have a field day as he racked up 25 points for the side. In the women’s division two, the Mornington Breakers had an 18-point loss to the Wallan Panthers, despite outscoring their opponents 20-14 in the final quarter. A second-quarter freeze by the Breakers was enough to give the Panthers the breathing space they needed to collect a win on the road. For the Breakers, Erin Ludwick collected 15 points to lead all on the night, as Fiona Darnell amassed 13 points and 14 boards for a solid double.

Waves score back-to-back wins NETBALL

PENINSULA Waves have bought up their third victory for the VNL Championship season in round six against Boroondara Express on Wednesday 30 May. The championship and division one sides walked away with six and seven goal victories respectively, and made it back-to-back victories after taking out the bayside clash the week prior against the Southern Saints. Peninsula Waves championship coach Jess Whitfort said it was “fantastic to put together two in a row” and named vice-captain, Adrienne Harris, as a stand-out player from the championship match. “She really set an example from the start to the finish,” she said. “She always presented herself as an option and did a mountain of work throughout the game.” The Waves’ under-19s side (59-44) had a 15-goal loss to Boroondara and after a slow start; Whitfort said “it was just too late to comeback”. The Southern Saints weren’t as fortunate in their round six matches as they suffered defeats in all three of their divisions to reigning premiers, North East Blaze. The Southern Saints championship side suffered the biggest blow with a 29-goal defeat (33-62) while the division one (51-69) and under-19s sides (46-57) went down by 18 and 11 goals, respectively. The Southern Saints and Peninsula Waves sides will have a quick back-up for round seven which kicks off on Sunday 3 June. The Southern Saints faced the Geelong Cougars, while the Waves faced the City West Falcons.
