ANZAC backtrack

Frankston Council have agreed to offer the Frankston RSL in-kind support for their ANZAC day services, after revoking that support earlier this year. Picture: Gary Sissons

ANZAC ceremony support signalled Brodie Cowburn FRANKSTON Council have backed away from plans to drop all in-kind support to the Frankston RSL for the annual ANZAC Day ceremony. Councillors voted at their 12 August public meeting to donate 80 chairs, 2 trestle tables and a lectern to the RSL. They also agreed to provide “in-kind officer assistance, capped at a maximum of $5000 for Frankston RSL, for event management.” Among the things council has agreed to assist with is booking securi-

ty, traffic management, toilet facilities, first aid, a photographer, and food and drink vendors. Council also agreed to assist with the “provision of and coordination of all event management plans and traffic management plans” and to write to “relevant state and federal ministers, with veteran affairs and local government portfolios, requesting state and federal support given the absent quantum of funding from both tiers of government.” Cr Quinn McCormack said “this is not a monetary provision, it is in-kind assistance that council will continue to provide to the Frankston RSL.” “It is also for liaison with the Sea-




ford RSL to determine what assistance, if any, is sought by the Seaford RSL,” she said. “It is incumbent upon council to continue to support this event but do so in a manner that is in keeping with all of the RSL clubs within the municipality.” Cr McCormack said in-kind support was offered because “it is also mindful of the amount of money and the income that is generated by the Frankston RSL with respect to their poker machines and various other income raising services.” Cr Steve Toms also cited the RSL’s pokie machine revenue as a concern. “Gambling does a great deal of harm

up to

to this community. This community loses millions of dollars through gambling every year and we must acknowledge that it is part of the RSL’s business model,” he said. “This is still supporting the RSL in conducting their ANZAC day services and is in line with a number of councils across Australia.” A Victorian Commission of Gambling and Liquor Regulation report found that gamblers lost over $9.7 million on electronic gaming machines at the Frankston RSL in the 2018/2019 financial year. Council officers at the meeting said in kind-support is estimated to amount


to between $4000 and $5000 “should the RSL actually undertake the service”. They also said that they “benchmarked” between nine and twelve councils who did not provide additional support to RSLs for ANZAC day services. The initial motion moved at the meeting noted that a letter has been issued to the RSL which committed “funding of $5000 for the Frankston RSL at the mid-year budget review”. An alternate motion was moved which read that council “revokes the letter issued to the Frankston RSL, which was not endorsed by council prior to sending.”

Dog helps with dialysis Childcare centre Helping paw: Cavalier king charles spaniel Lady with Elle at Frankston Hospital. Picture: Supplied

HAVING dialysis treatments three times a week isn’t easy, but an assistance dog can help make it a little less rough. Elle Heuch, a 28-year-old Frankston South resident, started dialysis treatment at the Frankston Haemodialysis Unit last year when her kidneys started to fail. The treatment proved to be a difficult time for Ms Heuch. “I have type 1 diabetes so that caused my kidney failure,” Ms Heuch said. “I’d had kidney disease for about four years when my kidneys started to fail in May last year. It was terrifying, the scariest thing that has happened to me and a lot of things have happened in my life. “I haven’t had the easiest time on dialysis, I used to get side effects like migraines, though the symptoms have cleared up a lot after adjustments to my treatment. Having dialysis also caused my anxiety to go pretty high.” To help Ms Heuch with her treatment, her family and friends raised money to bring assistance dog Lady into her life. Ms Heuch said the cavalier king charles spaniel, who has just recently celebrated her first birthday, was a huge help. “Dogs can smell the stress pheromones that humans release. When I’m having an anxiety attack Lady jumps on my lap and sits there and won’t get off until I physically stand up. She’s very calming,” Ms Heuch is on the waiting list for a kidney and pancreas transplant. She thanked the Peninsula Health staff for the work during her treatment. “The care is amazing, everyone is really lovely. They know that you aren’t always going to be having a good day. When you are having your bad days they are really great.”

plans rejected Brodie Cowburn A PLAN to construct a childcare centre on Barmah Court, Frankston South, has been knocked back by Frankston Council. A number of Barmah Court residents made submissions to council opposing the proposed development at the 12 August public council meeting. The proposal put to council was to use and develop land at 21 Barmah Court for a child care centre, to “remove fifteen substantial trees and construct and carry out works in the tree protection zone of substantial trees,” and to “construct and put up for display two business identification signs.” The recommendation provided by council officers to councillors was to approve the application. Councillors eventually voted for an amended motion to refuse a planning permit for the applicant. The permit was denied on the grounds that “the proposed development is contrary to the neighbourhood character policy (...) due to the removal of large established trees, the minimal setback from the rear site boundary and the solid brick fencing which fails to maintain and enhance the continuous flow of vegetation across the landscape.” A “lack of opportunity for tree plant-

ing”, a “material increase in traffic movement,” the “loss of existing vegetation with a landscaping response which does not adequately replace the contribution of that vegetation to the character of the area,” and insufficient parking were also cited as reasons for the refusal. Councillors Glenn Aitken, Brian Cunial, Quinn McCormack, Colin Hampton, Sandra Mayer, and Steve Toms voted to reject a permit to the applicant. The mayor Michael O’Reilly voted against a refusal, and Cr Kris Bolam abstained. The council officer’s report stated that the childcare centre was proposed to accomodate for 84 children and 14 staff. The officer’s report said that “the proposal is consistent with the planning policy frameworks, neighbourhood character policy and the planning requirements of the Frankston planning scheme”. 19 car parking spaces were nominated as part of the application. A total of 18 objections to the development were received by council. The proposed building had a maximum height of just under 7 metres, and took up a little less than 583 square metres. It was proposed to be used Monday to Friday, 6am to 6.30pm.

New busking rules finalised FRANKSTON Council has voted unanimously to endorse their new busking code of conduct and street performance permit conditions. Under the revised rules, buskers will face new restrictions on how long they can play for. Buskers are now only permitted to perform for 30 minutes at a time, followed by a 10 minute break. They are forbidden from performing

in one position in the municipality for longer than 90 minutes. The council officer’s report noted that the biggest changes to the code of conduct were that “street performance permits will be free, applicants [will be] vetted through a quality lens (keeping in mind that we are not auditioning for professional performers), assessment criteria [has been] developed to

ensure street performers are considered suitable and acceptable to safety, amenity and their public appeal, length of performance time has been reduced with mandatory maximum set times and mandatory breaks,” and that “selected sites allow for low volume amplification.” Council were briefed on the proposed code of conduct changes in June.

Picture: Gary Sissons

Garden salutes sister city FRANKSTON’s sister city relationship with Susono in Japan has been recognised with the opening of a tribute garden. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said the garden, next to Frankston Private Hospital, paid “tribute to Frankston’s enduring friendship with its Japanese sister city.” Susono is a city 115 kilometres from Tokyo, at the foot of Mount Fuji. The sister city relationship was established in 1982 with the help of the Yakazi Australia group. The garden features a plaque recognising their work. “Yazaki were a global leader in the car industry and the reason Susono became our sister city is because it is the world headquarters of Yazaki and Frankston was the location of Yazaki’s Oceania operations which they named Australian Arrow,” Cr O’Reilly said.

“Although the Yazaki closed in 2017 when the Australian car industry ceased, the active relationship between our two cities continues to grow thanks to the Frankston Susono Friendship Association, led by the dedicated Peter Patterson, and the Susono Overseas Friendship Association working to maintain the connection. “Both groups are community volunteers who for 37 years have helped each city celebrate each other’s culture, promote travel, including the former mayor’s visit to Susono last year, and develop youth culture exchange programs.” Cherry blossoms have been planted in the garden. Cr O’Reilly said “we are all looking forward to watching it flourish in spring and to see all the transformations it takes throughout the different seasons.”

New rooms for Saints at Moorabbin STAGE one of a $13 million dollar redevelopment at St Kilda’s Moorabbin training base has been officially opened. The first stage of the project has been completed in time to be used by the Saints’ AFLW team, which is set to make their debut in 2020. The completed facilities include female change rooms, player meeting rooms, match committee rooms, and a lounge. The next state of the redevelopment will add a grandstand and pool. A total of $25 million in taxpayer money has been committed towards re-homing the St Kilda Football Club at Moorabbin. Sports minister Martin Pakula said “these terrific new Moorabbin facilities will provide fe-

male footballers at both the elite and grassroots level with the opportunity to be their very best.” “We’re proud to be bringing elite footy back to Moorabbin Oval, the home of the St Kilda Football Club, as the AFLW Saints prepare to join the national league,” he said. St Kilda AFLW coach Peta Searle said “it’s really important for us to create an environment where our players feel like they belong. This facility gives the girls a place of their own and the space to carve their own paths here at the Saints.” The St Kilda Football Club finalised their move to Moorabbin from Seaford in 2016 after Kingston Council voted to give the Saints a 25 year lease with an option for a further 25 years.

Signs give insight into creek’s life and times NEW interpretative signs on Tanti Creek, Mornington, explain the natural environment of the creek, and its use by traditional owners the Boon Wurrung through to white settlement. They offer interesting illustrations and descriptions of the plants and wildlife in the creek estuary. Members of Tanti Creek Friends Judith Martin and Jan Oliver oversaw the designs of the large format signs during 10 years of research. Their work was paid for with a Mornington Peninsula Shire community grant. The signs are near the estuary at Mills Beach, and at the well-used foot bridge at Stones Crossing. Some of the early grand houses of Mornington were built along Tanti Creek, and the sign locates them on a map, with old photos and stories about the early inhabitants. “This was very much a group researched project,” Ms Oliver explained. “One shows the plants and animals of Tanti creek; the other shows a map of the original creek, and the key features along it, such as several homes which are still lived in. “They explain how the Boon Wurrung people used the creek for food, traditional medicines and craft materials.” Ms Martin said from Sydney where she now lives: “Our research produced so much information that it was a challenge to compile and edit it all down. “There are still families along the creek who remember the large apricot orchards, and the noise of the cattle yards behind the Tanti – now Mornington hotel. “We had to decide how much of the gossip about life along the creek should be put on the signs. “Also, we were fortunate to have artist Rachel Eareas undertake the artwork.” Visitors can see the signs at either side of the bridge at the Tanti estuary, and at Stones Crossing in Strattons Lane. A celebratory morning tea will be held 10.30am tomorrow (Wednesday 21 August), at the picnic table near the bridge at Mills Beach on the gravel carpark side. Tanti Creek Friends is a volunteer group dedicated to preserving and enhancing the environmental and aesthetic values of the creek. Working bees are held on the last Tuesday of each month.

Have food plan input COMMUNITY input is being sought by Frankston Council to help shape its “healthy choices policy”. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said the policy “aims to increase accessibility and availability of healthy food and drink options at all council-run facilities and functions, including events and community meetings.” “It is an important policy which needs community input,” he said. “Eating right is the cornerstone to living a healthy life and so through this policy, council aims to make it easier for our community to access healthy food and drinks through all of our services. “Introducing the healthy choices policy will help Frankston City Council to respond to the growing community demand to see healthy food and drink options on more menus in our municipality. We hope the community can help us shape this policy by having their say on what it includes so it can influence a positive change in the Frankston food landscape.” Frankston Council has been running and promoting a burger taste competition called “Burger Off” at the same time as asking for input on their “healthy choices policy”. The competition encourages residents to try out burgers around Frankston and vote for their favourites. The proposed policy can be downloaded from Submissions close 27 August.

Tax time

advertising feature

Ten billion back in your hands TEN billion dollars has been refunded to Australian taxpayers so far this tax time, an increase of overtwo billion dollars from this time last year, with most returns being processed in under two weeks. Australian Taxation Office (ATO) Assistant Commissioner Karen Foat highlighted that the ATO seeks to process returns as soon as possible, announcing that over four million refunds have already been sent out, compared to over three million refunds issued this time last year. “Of course, the ATO works around the clock to quickly get refunds in peoples’ hands. How-

ever, there are some things that taxpayers should take care with to ensure their return is not unnecessarily delayed. “Firstly, it’s important to check your bank account details are correct, and if you’ve changed accounts recently, take a moment to update your details. “When refunds get sent to incorrect bank accounts, redirecting them to your new account will take more time. This tax time, we’ve seen some people who are really keen to get their refund, having missed this important step.” “Another big obstacle getting between some people and their return is forgetting to declare some income. Common things people forget to include are rental income, bank interest and government allowances or payments – particularly if they lodged before our pre-fill was available. “If our data shows us that you’ve likely left out income, that can slow down the processing of your return while we make additional checks. “Our data analytics also flags instances of people making claims out of the norm for their occupation and income level. “While we want people to claim what they are entitled to, where claims seem unusual we may do some additional checks, which could mean longer until you get your refund. So make sure you only claim what you are entitled to and keep your receipts so that you’ll have them on hand quickly if we do need to see them”, Ms Foat said. Remember if you have lodged your return online, it can take the ATO up to two weeks to process. You can check the status of your return by logging into your myGov account, using the ATO app or searching online via ATO’s website. There is no way to speed up this process, even if you call the ATO.

Welcome to returned soldiers at Mount Eliza Compiled by Cameron McCullough ANOTHER Welcome Home, to five returned soldiers, took place at Mt. Eliza on Monday evening last the guests being – Major Geoff. Grice, M.C. and O.B.E., Capt. Hugh Davey, Lieut Claude Grice, Serg. J. Henley and Pte. F. Mitchell. The hall, which was tastefully decorated by Miss Poultney with Cootamundra wattle blossom, and many flags, looked at its best. Cr. Flannigan, (president of the Mornington Shire) acted as chairman, and carried out his duties in his usual, capable manner. The hall was filled to overflowing, also a large marquee in front of the door kindly lent by Mr Jas. Grice. The programme opened by the playing of the National Anthem by the “Welcome Home” orchestra from Frankston. The orchestra contributed three selections during the evening, each of which was much appreciated by the large audience. The first half of the programme was given by the school children, under the direction of Miss Poultney, with recitations and singing, in a very capable and a pleasing manner. The chairman then delivered a very stirring speech, and on behalf of the residents, extended to the five soldiers a most hearty welcome home. In referring to Major Grice’s winning of the M.C., he (the chairman) considered that of far more value than a title, as it was only won by a soldier for conspicuous bravery on the battlefield. Major Grice in responding, advised

the people not to believe quite all the chairman had said with regard to his bravery; his brother had done braver deeds than he, and had got nothing. He assured his hearers that there was no part of the world he had seen could equal his own country. On behalf of his comrades and himself, he offered the residents his best thanks for the pleasant evening. Capt. Davey, Lieut. Grice, Sgt. Henley and Pte. Mitchell also briefly responded and thanked the people for their welcome. The following ladies and gentlemen contributed items of harmony, which were all much appreciated: Misses Mitchell and Cozens, and Mr W. Thomas. Miss Prosser and Miss Smith were most capable accompanist. After refreshments had been handed round the rest of the, evening was given up to dancing, to music supplied by Mr Ferguson, piano, Messrs Deane and Moseley, violins, and Mr H. Prosser cornet, a very enjoyable evening being brought to a close by the singing of Auld Lang Syne. The orchestra is deserving of special thanks for joining up from Frankston at considerable inconvenience and for helping to make the evening such a decided success. *** ON Thursday, 28th August, Alex. Scott and Co Pty. Ltd. will conduct a clearing sale at Seaford on account of Mr J. Wyatt, whose lease has expired a first class dairy herd, plant, and household furniture and effects. The sale will take place on the property adjoining Wells Road, one

mile from Seaford railway station. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Progress Association will be held next Friday evening, and a large attendance of new members is expected. The latter half of the past year’s work has been sadly hampered by the prevalence of influenza, and the fixing of Friday as the evening of the meeting resulted in much clashing with entertainments naturally falling on the same night. A good deal of foundation work has, however, been accomplished, and we hope that, in these more settled times of peace, the Association will start its second year with the whole-hearted support of our people and do a lot of good work. *** THE Commonwealth Treasury has approved a proposal made by the central Peace Loan Committee for the issue of a commemorative tablet to each district which subscribes its quota of the loan. This tablet will be of bronze and will be placed on the wall of the municipal building as a permanent memorial of the energy and patriotism of the district in securing its alloted quota. The tablet will be of an attractive design, bearing an appropriate inscription of the signatures of the Prime Minister and the Treasurer. It will also embody the name of the town, borough, or shire to which it is awarded, and the name of the Mayor or President who is in the office at the time.

It is intended that when an area obtains double its quota the tablet will be surmounted by the Australian coat of arms bronze. *** ON Sunday last the little son of Mr and Mrs Coxall, Frankston, aged 2 years, was badly scalded. The little fellow pulled a vessel containing hot fat over himself, with the result that his head and chest were very badly injured. The sufferer was hurried to St Pancras Private Hospital, where medical treatment was quickly forthcoming. For some days the boy’s condition was serious, but he is now making satisfactory progress. *** MR J. D. Jennings who is recovering from a severe attack of influenza hopes to resume his school duties next Monday. *** AT the conference of the subbranches of the Returned Soldiers’ Association, held in Melbourne this week, the Frankston Branch was represented by its President, Mr Arthur Wilcox, and Mr W. Hanton (vice-president). *** PTE. Reg. Ritchie, son of Mr Thos. Ritchie, of “Ramslade”, returned home on Wednesday last. He received a warm welcome from his Frankston friends, and the town was gaily be-flagged in honor of the occasion. *** IT is the intention of members of the Frankston Tent L.O.R. to tender Bro F. H. Wells a complimentary social

on Monday, 25th August, in recognition of his past valuable services, rendered as secretary of the lodge for the past 14 years. A suitable presentation will also be made to Mr Wells. The arrangements in connection with forthcoming function are in the hands of, a strong committee, with Mr L. J. Ward as secretary. *** Football The match against Balnarring, to be played this afternoon on the Frankston oval, promises to be one of more than ordinary interest, and should attract a large crowd of those interested in witnessing a well contested game. Up to the present two points only separate Frankston, Balnarring and Hastings, and on the result of this afternoon’s play will decide the position of these teams in the semi-final matches. *** MISSING Since April—Five Heifers (1 brown to black on body, white legs ands belly, springer; 1 dark grey Jersey, may have calved both 18 months old and branded BI near-shoulder, slit point near ear; 1 red, deformed fore leg. been broken above knee, age 2 years, should now have calved, branded BI off shoulder; 1 red and white, branded F off rump: 1 strawberry, branded P off rump, in calf, both good yearlings). Reward. J. H. Barclay, Hastings. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 23 August 1919

The Re-Invention of Breakfast By Stuart McCullough BREAKFAST used to be so simple; toast, cornflakes and maybe a glass of either milk or juice. Breakfast was an obstacle – something you had to deal with before you could get on with the rest of the day. It was something to be disposed of rather than lingered over. And it certainly was not something that was done anywhere other than in the privacy of your own home. It was not a social event but inherently private. As someone who was born before ‘smashed avo’ was invented, I’ve struggled to adapt as breakfast has mutated from being the most important meal of the day to the lynchpin social event that binds us together. As a kid, my abiding memory of breakfast is of emerging from the back end of the house to find my father already at the dining table. His breakfast; two pieces of honey toast, some kind of cereal and a cup of tea, would be consumed while he poured over the newspapers he’d bought over the weekend but, as yet, had not had a chance to read. My father was always first. Always. I was second in line. It’s an ‘everybody for themselves’ kind of meal. Dinner is inherently communal. Breakfast, though, is something you have to learn to do for yourself. It is, in fact, probably the first meal you ever make for yourself. From wrangling the toaster to splashing milk into a bowl and considering all-important questions like the milk to cereal ratio, taking into account hugely variable absorption rates because when all is said and done, Wheetbix are basically sponges, it’s


Frankston Times

the meal you make for yourself. When I first met my wife, she liked to make breakfast for dinner. It’s comforting. The shift was subtle. At a certain point, I had to attend work-related breakfasts. I was resistant – it was a direct challenge to my notion that breakfast is the most private meal of the day – a time for contempla-

tion and preparation and, preferably, pyjamas. I can say from experience that it’s a mistake you only make four times – five tops – before you realize that rocking up to a work event in your Peter Alexanders and a dressing gown is generally frowned up. It certainly does little for career advancement. If it makes others feel

uncomfortable, I feel it says more about them than me. But breakfast didn’t just mean business. At a certain point, breakfast also meant the weekend. At the beginning, it was something of a test – namely, could you get up early enough and be in a fit condition to eat in public? In my twenties, this became something of a litmus test. If I was able to get myself organized and out the door to eat breakfast on the weekend, then presumably I had not over-indulged the night before. It was quite an assumption. Back then, there were Saturday mornings where eating breakfast in public felt like a major achievement. This was back in the era when I did a lot of things on my own, and wrangling yourself is a unique challenge as there’s no harsher critic or more lenient judge that your own self. I would feel self conscious as I sat by myself, hoping not to be noticed except by the waiting staff. Without exception, these meals had a medicinal quality; consisting as they did of greasy foods intended to soothe a troubled mind and equally troubled stomach. Then breakfast got seriously fancy. It was no longer a medicinal fry-up. It contained things like kale. Kale. I’m not convinced that’s even a real word. As a kid, I couldn’t have picked kale out of a line up. Now it’s ubiquitous. Surely some enterprising café will soon declare they’re ‘proudly kale free’. Even toast has become problematic. It’s no longer just toast but ‘organic sourdough made from hand-ground flour by someone with dreadlocks while watching the films

of Jean Luc-Goddard, char-grilled over an open volcano and served with bespoke marmalade made from recycled shoe leather with a cumquat infusion.’ Breakfast got way complicated. Don’t even think about ordering coffee in under six syllables. It’s impossible. The other thing I’ve noticed is that breakfast has become compartmentalized. Things that were once standard are now added extras. Even staples like bacon and eggs now treat the ‘bacon’ part of the equation as an added extra. It’s kind of like ‘Build A Bear’ where you construct your own breakfast rather than relying on the expertise of others. Once, a fancy breakfast meant choosing which miniature box you were going to choose from the Kellogg’s Variety Pack. Not any more. I’ll admit that even when we do stay in, my own approach is no longer simple. Instead, it’s an all-out extravaganza with a vast array of components that requires almost every saucepan we own to be brought to realization. I have spent Saturday mornings roasting walnuts for texture as I stir steel cut oats, sprinkled with fresh unicorn tears. Once, I made a bowl of porridge that looked like a bear. I have no idea why. I have a black belt in eggs. I can poach, scramble, fry and teach them the alphabet if push comes to shove. Kurt Vonnegut wrote a book called ‘Breakfast of Champions’. As for me, I think I’ve landed at ‘Breakfast of Dilettantes’. I’d be unhappy about this if it weren’t so….tasty.

Sharks impress before finals DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO will head into finals with momentum on their side after easily defeating Pines in their last home and away match for the season. The Sharks put on a show in front of their home crowd at David Macfarlane Reserve. They took the lead early with an impressive first half, and never looked like giving it up. Sorrento went into half time comfortably six goals ahead, and didn’t let up in the second half. They were helped by three goals from Mitch Hallahan. Shannon Gladman, Nick Marston, and Chad Harris also had impressive games for the Sharks. Sorrento will head into finals full of confidence after securing the win 16.13 (109) to 6.10 (46). Pines have been suffering through a form slump in recent times, and would slip down to third on the ladder if Dromana could defeat bottom placed Mornington. The Tigers started well in the first term, but failed to punish Mornington on the scoreboard. Dromana kicked 1.6 in the first term, and Mornington made them pay in the second quarter by taking the lead. Heading into the second half down by less than a goal, Dromana were still in a good position to salvage the match. They let themselves down again in the third quarter by kicking just three behinds, allowing Mornington to stretch their lead to 24. The Tigers had another frustrating quarter in the last, only scoring three goals from their nine scoring opportunities. Dromana let a golden opportunity to take second place slip by falling to Mornington 6.18 (54) to 11.6 (72). Although the win didn’t move them

up from bottom place on the ladder, it is still a nice way for the Bulldogs to cap off what has been a tough year. Jackson Calder booted three goals for the victors, taking his total for the year for 59. At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW scored a big win over Bonbeach. The Sharks took an early lead by quarter time, but it was all downhill from there. Bonbeach scored just one behind in the second quarter, as the Stonecats took back the lead. Frankston YCW looked impressive in the second half and will head into the finals with hope that they can make an impact. They defeated Bonbeach 13.13 (91) to 6.3 (39). Luke Paynter was among the best for the Stonecats, scoring three goals. Although Rosebud missed out on finals, they ended their season on a positive note with a thumping win over Frankston Bombers. Rosebud were good right from the get go, and looked comfortable up by 34 at the half time break. They continued to play well as the second half rolled around, and eventually secured a 65 point win over the Bombers 21.12 (138) to 10.13 (73). Tim Lincoln and Daniel Lewis both had an impact for the Buds, scoring

fours goals each. Koby Villis was the Bombers’ best. He also kicked four goals. At Regents Park, EdithvaleAspendale capped off a tough year with a win over Mt Eliza in front of their home crowd, It was a see-sawing contest, which

saw Edithvale-Aspendale let their 20 point half point lead slip heading into the final term. The Redlegs were up by three at three-quarter time, but couldn’t hold on. Edi-Asp have had their struggles this season, but ended on a high note with a 13.13 (91) to 11.8 (74) win. Mi-

chael Bussey had a good day, kicking four goals. At Olympic Oval, Pines will play Dromana on Saturday in the qualifying final. There will be no second chances for Frankston YCW or Bonbeach, who face off on Sunday at RJ Rowley Reserve.

Kangaroos give Bulls a shock DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn LANGWARRIN have got their finals campaign off to a flying start by securing an upset win over Karingal. Both sides travelled to Somerville on Saturday for the qualifying final keen to get a win. Both sides had a good season, and did well enough to to secure a double chance for finals. The Kangaroos got the early jump over the Bulls, and took a two goal lead into the first break. They managed to hold onto that lead throughout most of the game, and were still in the box seat by three-quarter time. Langwarrin led Karingal by 14 points going into the last term. Karingal couldn’t do enough in the final quarter to make Langwarrin worry, and they eventually succumbed to defeat 6.8 (44) to 9.16 (70). The result was a shock one, with Karingal coming into the contest as favourites. They finished over two wins ahead of the Kangaroos on the ladder this season. Matthew Payenborg scored three goals for the winning Kangaroos, while Jarryd Amalfi, Luke Churcher, and Mitch Cuthbert also had an impact. Having lost the qualifying final, Ka-

ringal will now take on the winner of the Chelsea vs Somerville clash in a do or die match next week. Alexandra Park played host to Chelsea and Somerville in their semi final clash. The Seagulls got off to a nightmare start, kicking seven straight behinds in the first term to blow their chance of a big early lead. Chelsea were a little better in the second quarter and managed to sneak into a narrow lead by the time half time came around. After the main break, Somerville did some damage with a five goals to one third term. Chelsea weren’t able to claw their way back from a five goal deficit in the final quarter, and ended up succumbing to defeat 5.20 (50) to 9.12 (66). Thanks to their inaccuracy in front of goal, Chelsea have crashed out of finals and are left wondering what might have been. Red Hill take on Sorrento at Chelsea Reserve next Saturday in a semi-final clash. At Alexandra Park on Sunday, Karingal will play Somerville.

Eagles soar, seven for Stingrays SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE State 5 South championship and automatic promotion are within touching distance for Somerville Eagles after Saturday’s 3-1 derby success against Rosebud. Nearest challengers Old Mentonians continued to stumble after a second successive draw and even if the grammarians win their catch-up game this week against bottom team Hampton Park United they will be four points behind Somerville with three matches remaining. Somerville has an inviting run home coming up against three of the bottom four sides and the biggest challenge facing co-coaches Scott Morrison and Dave Greening is to ward off complacency among their players. Veteran striker Mark Pagliarulo gave Somerville a dream start against Rosebud when his initial shot in the 4th minute was blocked by opposition keeper James Cinar but “Pags” won the ball back and smacked it home in off Cory Osorio. Blake Hicks should have done better five minutes later when he got free on the left of the area only to shoot wide. “Pags” shot against the near post in the 27th minute and a Callum Richardson long-range strike in the 38th minute was tipped over by Cinar but the keeper was all at sea three minutes later when he flapped at a Dave Greening freekick that made it 2-0. The legendary scorer nabbed his second just before the interval when he turned his opponent on the left of the area then hammered home a shot from 12 metres. Somerville couldn’t build on that scoreline in the second half as time and again it was caught offside and the goal of the game came from Rosebud in the 73rd minute when Mike Durrance let fly from 30 metres to make it 3-1. Rosebud forfeited the scheduled reserves game on Saturday claiming that injuries and player unavailability meant that it couldn’t field a full side. In other State 5 news 16-year-old Nathan Barnett’s hat-trick underpinned Aspendale Stingrays’ 7-3 hammering of Bunyip District at Bunyip Recreation Reserve on Saturday. A Dario Maia goal after four minutes set Aspendale back on its heels but by half-time the visitors led 5-1 and the contest was over. Bunyip had no answer to Barnett’s pace and shooting prowess and the teenager also had a hand in goals from captain Peter Dimopoulos and Ben Garside. Reserves defender Jordan Daicos came off the bench in the second half for his first senior appearance and Stingrays coach Lee Barber has much to look forward to next season with such a young side. Barnett was one of five teenagers in Saturday’s starting line-up and the oldest player was just 22. In NPL2 news Langwarrin had to rely on a 90th minute Max Etheridge strike to rule out Shaun Romein’s first-half goal for Ballarat City last weekend. The match ended 1-1 at Morshead Park Stadium and the Scott Miller-led Langwarrin has now secured its NPL2 status for next season when the

elite competition will be restructured and a thirdtier league introduced. In NPLW news Southern United lost 5-0 at home to champion Calder United last weekend. The under-19s lost 1-0, the under-16s drew 0-0 and the under-14s lost 1-0. In State 1 news Josh Hine continued to impress with another hat-trick this time against hapless Beaumaris at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Youngster Kyron Kerr’s through ball in the 42nd minute put Hine clear and he had no trouble slotting the ball past Beaumaris keeper Dean Menere for the opener. Great work by Liam Baxter on the right in the 58th minute and a precise square ball to the back post gave Hine a tap-in to make it 2-0. Amir Osmancevic had replaced injured Sammy Orritt in the first half and in the 70th minute his right-foot volley from just outside the area went in off the inside of the post. Mornington was cruising at this stage and Hine completed his hat-trick when he stole in at the back post and although his header was blocked he reacted quickly to prod the ball past Menere from close range. Beaumaris’ best player Rhys Craigie made it 4-1 with a well-struck shot from the right of the area in the 86th minute but the home side was out


of sight by then. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 2-1 away to promotion-chasing Brandon Park on Saturday. A Grant Lane shot following an interchange of passes between Matt Harrington and John Prescott put Strikers ahead in the 25th minute. Graham Hill equalised in the 60th minute with a low right-foot shot after being set up by former Strikers’ player Josh Calle. In the 83rd minute Scottish winger Jack Haggerty was brought down inside the box by Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack and Josh Caruana converted the winner from the spot. Former Pines captain Hill was sent off in the 90th minute after his second yellow card. In State 3 news Skye United remains in second spot despite drawing 1-1 away against South Yarra on Saturday. South Yarra took the lead in the 16th minute when Jonathon Bithell broke through into a oneon-one and finished well past Skye keeper Jonathon Crook. A superb Mark O’Connor free kick in the 36th minute tied it up and neither side could strike a decisive blow in the second half on a deteriorating pitch. Skye striker Mitch Blake had the ball in the

net in the 85th minute after a quick free-kick was taken by Daniel Attard however the referee pulled it back for a retake. South Yarra struck the underside of the bar in injury time. Skye’s main challenger for promotion is Whitehorse United who had to come from 2-0 down to draw at home with Bayside Argonauts. The result leaves Skye in control of its own destiny and a favourable draw. Whitehorse has just one home game remaining and faces two of the top five sides in the last three games of the season whereas Skye has two home games left and its three remaining matches are against teams in the bottom half of the league. Frankston Pines snatched a draw with a 1-1 result away to a physical Diamond Valley United side last Saturday. The home team led through a first-half Jay Lal goal but Max Caridi received a straight red and Diamond Valley was forced to play for almost 70 minutes with 10 men. Five of Caridi’s teammates were cautioned but Pines got out of jail when Lachlan McMinimee equalised in the 89th minute by finishing off a Connor McAndrews’ cutback from the right. The big news in State 4 South is the snub delivered by Seaford United to Sandown Lions last weekend. Sandown will come under Football Victoria scrutiny at a tribunal hearing on Wednesday this week to hear charges relating to its abandoned fixture against Springvale City on Friday 2 August. Seaford told FV of its fears regarding player and spectator safety for its scheduled away match against Sandown last Saturday and eventually notified the federation that it was forfeiting both the senior and reserves fixtures. Baxter is due to host Sandown Lions this Saturday and has asked FV to postpone the fixture pending the tribunal outcome. Three other clubs – Chelsea, Dandenong South and Harrisfield Hurricanes – are considering forfeiting upcoming matches against Sandown. Last weekend Baxter lost 3-1 away to Noble Park United. Noble Park led 1-0 at half-time and despite a Stuart McKenzie goal in the second-half a brace from Vlasi Zarifis sealed Baxter’s fate. Baxter defender Tim Lee was sent off in the 89th minute after receiving a second caution. This weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Frankston Pines v Elwood City (Monterey Reserve), Springvale City v Seaford Utd (Ross Reserve). SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Goulburn Valley Suns (Lawton Park), Southern Utd v Senior NTC (Monterey Reserve; under-16s 11.30am, under-19s 1pm), St Kilda v Mornington (Elwood Park), Peninsula Strikers v Mooroolbark (Centenary Park), Diamond Valley Utd v Skye Utd (Partingtons Flat), Baxter v Sandown Lions (TBC), Rosebud v Old Mentonians (Olympic Park), Aspendale Stingrays v Casey Panthers (Jack Grut Reserve), Hampton Park Utd v Somerville Eagles (KM Reedy Reserve).
