YEA HOSPITAL TO MERGE WITH SEYMOUR HEALTH Rich history of local care

COMMENT

Yea would be junior partner ■ There is a certain inevitability about the proposal to merge Yea and District Memorial Hospital with Seymour Health. Economics of running country hospitals mean that back-office savings are essential to balance tight balances. Yea and District Memorial Hospital’s Board engaged a consultant last year, who identified five options for the organisation’s future. Modest losses have been incurred annually for some years, mainly through depreciation write-downs, gradually eating away at the Yea Hospital reserves. Hundreds of thousands of dollars could be saved annually by leaving Goulburn Valley Health, which provides ‘corporate services’ to Yea, and by merging management with Seymour Health, the Board believes. ‘Selling’ the merger proposal to Yea locals will probably be the most difficult part of the proposal. The Board is reassuring that the Yea and District Memorial Hospital will not change its name. Sweeteners are being added that a merger might result in Yea obtaining a foot clinic and a dental chair. The Board’s media statement hints at enhanced Well Women’s Clinics, podiatry services and palliative care. Assurances are being offered that a ‘Charter of Merge’ would demand that Yea have equal representation on a combined Seymour-Yea health organisation. There are no guarantees that that Yea representation would last beyond a few years. Yea Hospital has a turnover of approximately $5.5 million. Seymour Health has a turnover of approximately $18.5 million. The Yea component would represent a quarter of the combined $24 million turnover. The Local Paper understands that the merger proposal already has the tacit nod of the Victorian Health Minister Jill Hennessy and her department. ‘Due diligence’ is to take place over the next nine weeks, with a final decision to most likely to be made in September. Unless there is an extraordinary public outcry, the merger appears to be a ‘done deal’.

● Yea and District Memorial Hospital, viewed from Station St, Yea. ■ Yea and District Memorial Hospital is likely to merge with Seymour Health, as early as September. Yea Hospital President Kristin Michaels announed on Thursday (May 18) that the merger of management teams was being explored to establish better and expanded local health services. Senior hospital staff were due to be advised last Thursday (May 18), with other staff to be told on Friday (May 19). The Yea Hospital has 40 staff (full-time equivalent) and they are being reassured that no jobs will be lost in the merger. The Hospital is one of the largest employers in the Yea district. “Under the proposal, both hospitals would fully retain their existing hospital names, services and staffing levels, and patient care will continue as usual,” says a statement from the two organisations. Yea Hospital has previously obtained its ‘corporate services’ from the Shepparton-based GV Health. The Yea Board believes that savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars per year can be made by merging the Seymour and Yea management teams. The proposed merger with Seymour Health would secure the future of the hospital and better prepare it to serve the ongoing needs of the Yea community, says Ms Michaels. “The Board of Yea and District ● Kristin Michaels, President, Yea Hospital Memorial Hospital believes now is of the Yea and District Memorial the right time to unite the manage- Hospital and help expend local ment team of our hospital with that health services in Yea, which could of Seymour Health,’ she said. a fot clinic and a dental chair Yea Hospital has an acute care include as well as enhanced Well Women’s section, accident and emegency de- Clinics, podiatry services and palliapartment, and Rosebank Hostel and tive care.” Extended Care Centre (10 and 15 Ms Michaels conducted interbed respectively). views with The Local Paper (50 minSeymour Health incorporates the utes), and Alexandra Standard/Yea Seymour Hospital, Barrabil House Chronicle last Thursday. residential aged care, an AmbulaShe has been President of the Yea tory Care Centre, and community Hospital since 2010, and an extencare (outreach) operations.

Members quit

● Press clipping from the Yea newspaper. 1914 ■ Since the first years of the 1900s, Yea has been extremely proud of its local hospital services. Nurse Drysdale conducted the Rossmoor Private Hospital in Raglan St from about 1904. In 1928, the Fernley Private Hospital opened in MarySt, with its name changed to the Yea Bush Nursing Hospital in 1939. After World War II, the Hospital and Charities Commission assumed responsibility for the hospital. It took the name of Yea and District Memorial Hospital in 1948. The columns of Yea’s press regularly contained details of donations in cash and kind, and the work of auxiliaries. It was common for lists of donated foods (particularly eggs) to appear in the local newspaper. A public appeal was commenced in 1948, to fund the construction of a 10-bed hospital building. Building work commenced in 1956, and the new ‘acute’ beds were first occupied in 1958. In 1972, funding for an additional three acute bed wing was provided by the Apex Club of Yea. Rosebank Hostel was first occupied in 1979. Members of the Rotary Club of Yea were particularly active in the fund-raising for the Accident and Emergency area. Similarly, Rotarians played an active role in the intense lobbying of the Labor State Government for the helipad in Station St, Yea, across the road from the hospital grounds. Renovations of the acute section of the hospital were undertaken in 2001-03. At the same time, works were underway at the Rosebank Nursing Home and Hostel. In 2004, the Hospital and Rosebank Extended Care Centre were amalgamated. Recognition was given to the late Grace Bennetts for her contributions to local aged care. In 2004, Yea and District Memorial Hospital assumed responsibiloity for community services in the western side of Murrindindi Shire. Alexandra District Hospital has similar responsibilities on the eastern side of the municipality.

Health merger likely

$95,000 paid to GV Health

■ Latest figures available at the Yea Hospital website show that during the 2015-16 year, Yea and District Memorial Hospital paid $95,952 (2014 $92,728) to GV Health in relation to the service provided by the CEO and other administration staff.

Don’t be distracted

■ Local Paper reader Mark Hoysted writes: “Unfortunately it seems that whenever these mergers occur, the level of services for the local community diminishes. “Once the arguments from the bean-counters override those of the practitioners, you fundamentally change the basis on which health care is being provided to the community. “Health care cannot be measured in strictly monetary terms. That's why it is given to the government to manage. “I think that while people are being distracted with the offer of a foot clinic and dental chair , they should also pay close attention to services which are being transferred to Seymour - or closed completely.”

Rumours of change

■ Speculation about changes at Yea Hospital were first aired on social media by local resident Malcolm Bett on May 5. “Any truth in that Yea Hospital is closing?” Malcolm asked. Leading Yea citizen Neil Beer replied: “I have contacted a Yea Hospital Board member - his words ... certainly news to me!” At the time, The Local Paper contacted Hospital Manager Lorina Gray, whose comment for publication was “We are not closing.”

● From Page 9 Seymour Health Chair Annie Fletcher-Nicholls said: “We welcome the opportunity to partner with Yea and District Memorial Hospital, and look forward to continuing to serve both local communities as a new, united health service.” The media statement, issued above the name of Chris McDonnell, CEO of Seymour Health, says that the due diligence process for the proposed merger is expected yto be finalised in coming months. Ms Michaels was more specific. She nominated a nine-week process, with the end decision due in September. Ms Michaels said the Yea board had been “grappling” about the future of the hospital. There are always challenges with the exteranl funding regime, she said. The Board had responsibilities to look at the capacity of the hospital, and its ability to provide a level of services. The consultant was engaged by the Yea Hospital Board last year to “future proof” the organisation. An “external review” was essential to best identify the options. The issue of the Yea Hospital being the hub of health care in Yea was not in question, she stressed. The final report was received late last year. Discussions with Seymour Health have been in progress over the past six months. The initiative for the merger talks had come from Yea, and the Board had not been “tapped on the shoulder” by State Government authorities, she said. That notwithstanding, Health Department personnel have been aware of the talks between Yea and Seymour, she said. Matters discussed included issues of efficiency, governance, logistics and shared knowledge.

Councillors rely on survey ■ Murrindindi Shire Councillors continue to rely on a three-question simple survey conducted with 11 per cent of the population, to show they have a mandate for their agenda. Mayor Cr Charlie Bisset issued a media release this week, saying that the “Council's recent conversation with the community” reinforced the strength of feeling local people have for the place they live. "Our recent 'Have Your Say' community engagement told us all the things the community loves about the Shire - the natural beauty of the area, clean air, and great rural lifestyle, all in close proximity to the Melbourne,” Cr Bissett said. “The community emphasised the importance of preserving our natural environment and the character of the Shire. "The community also thinks community connections and community facilities are important. “Our infrastructure and the things that make the Shire both an easy and attractive place to live and a great destination to visit are also important. “These include improving linkages between towns, including trails and transport; focusing on recreation and entertainment opportunities; embracing and celebrating the diversity of our townships, finding innovative solutions to waste management and enhancing our environmental sustainability. “We have included in our draft budget a number of items which will directly support these

● Cr Charlie Bissett, Mayor “$7.134 million has been allocated to our Capital Works Program in Council's 2017-18 budget. Key items include: ■ $1.2 million for the upgrade and renewal of sealed roads including the design for a significant upgrade of Aitken Cres. and its intersection with Kinglake-Glenburn Rd in the heart of Kinglake, and the sealing of Pendlebury and Wattle Sts in Alexandra. ■ $2.7 million on unsealed road resurfacing and grading ■ $1.1 million on bridges including the completion of the replacement of the Dairy Creek Bridge at Homewood and Drayton's Bridge on Fairview Rd, Kerrisdale. ■ $0.231 million on footpaths and cycle ways including a new pathway around the intersection of Whittlesea-Kinglake and Extons Rds in Kinglake which lead to the primary school. ■ Refurbishment and repair to the facade and tower of Yea Shire Hall ■ Renewal of the Thornton Reserve pavilion.

■ Murrindindi Shire Council's Kinglake Resource Recovery Centre has been hit again by thieves, this time stealing a generator worth more than $5500. The generator was stolen sometime between Sunday May 14 and Wednesday May 17, along with a range of goods including copper pipes and a staff member's personal belongings. Murrindindi Shire Council's CEO Margaret Abbey said Police were now involved in the investigation. "This was not the first time unscrupulous people have raided our Resource Recovery Centres," Ms Abbey said. "In fact, this is just one of a number of thefts we've had at our Centres over the past two years". "Both the Kinglake and the Yea Resource Recovery Centres have been the target of a number of break-ins and related damage, with fences cut and shed doors and panels broken. The combined cost to the community would be at least $20,000 over the past few years." "We've had batteries and high value metals taken from the sites on a regular basis, but these criminals have stolen tools, a water tank and even the fuel from an excavator.”

Bushfire memorial to be next to public toilets ■ Murrindindi Shire CEO MargaretAbbey has told a ratepayer that the $25,000 Kinglake West bushfire memorial is to be located alongside the local public toilet block. “I can confirm that the Councillors discussed the feedback received on the six bushfire memorials last Wednesday,” Ms Abbey wrote to the ratepayer on May 17. “The Memorials Working Group had discussed the submissions which were received in relation to the final designs for each of the six bushfire memorials,” Ms Abbey said. “In particular, they considered the differing views received from various community members in Kinglake West regarding the location of that memorial. “The Working Group indicated that they believed that, based upon the comments received, that Council should proceed with the memorial at the location shown on the final concept design. “Councillors discussed the various comments received from residents and the views of the Working Group and agreed that we should proceed with the memorial at the location shown on the final concept design,” MsAbbey said.

Murrindindi Shire Council's CEO Margaret Abbey said the benefits of registering pets are clear, particularly if something happens and they go missing. "Not only is it a legal requirement to register any dog or cat over the age of three months with Council, if it does go missing or wander off, we can easily contact you and return it free of charge.. "However, if your pet isn't registered, it makes it much more difficult for us to find you, and then not only do you have to collect it, but you may also be fined," Ms Abbey said

Editor’s Diary

■ An application for the Fun Mudder Event at Buxton on October 22 is due to go to the meeting of Murrindindi Shire Council to be held tonight (Wed.) at Yea. N. Bolto is asking for permission to stage the event on farming land at 140 Granite Park Place. An officer has recommended to Councillors that a permit be issued.

■ More than $500,000 hung in the balance as Yea Shire attempted to discover who actually controlled land in Kinglake that ad-joined a controversial private streets scheme. The Shire had sent out estimates to landowners for the scheme, “but now it seems that the Shire itself might have to foot the bill following claims that land is the name of local government”.

Level at change

■ “It was like the old Waranga days at Nagambie on Saturday, when entertaining football of good standard, some excellent individual performances, and the result in doubt until Yea ‘went mad’ in the last quarter and finally won by 33 points,” wrote Tom Dignam. “Scores were level at the last change. Yea’s fading last quarter was turned completely around.”

Tapes at Rotary

■ Motivational tapes featuring Australian rugby coach Alan Jones were played by Yea Rotary member Neil Beer at the weekly meeting of the service club. President-Elect Les Hall led a number of members “and their ladies” to an office bearers’ course at Benalla.

Garden Club news

■ Yea Garden Club President John Yorston said the calibre and professionalism of guest speakers had left members with a wealth of knowldege. Speakers had included Arthur Brown, Jeremy Drew, Robert Strugnall and Corrie Hesser. He praised Secretary Netta Jackson and Treasurer Barb Guttridge, and assistants Beryl Hickingbotham and Maisie Sichlau. New office bearers were Stan Cummins, President; Elaine White, Vice-President; Mrs C. Nash, Secretary

Ads pulled

■ Cr David Lawson cancelled his weekly ‘piano turning’ ad, and stopped lodging his Yea Shire President’s column, after the newspaper published an opinion different to his. Cr Dougal Drysdale flagged a recission motion for the Council to appoint a $60,000 Chief Executive Officer, a move made possible only by casting vote of Cr Lawson.

Debate won

■ Yea High School won the first round of debating against Broadford High School. Team members were Rebecca Freeman, Christine Hauser and Simonne Mullaly. They took the negative case of the question: ‘That the Australian flag should be changed.’

YFNC social room

■ “I am pleased to inform all members that finally we have made a start on our Social Room,” said John Quinlan, President of the Yea Football-Netball Club. “Mr Bill Wilson is in charge of the project and expects to work to be completed by the end of the month.”

Angry Race Club

■ Yea Race Club President PeterProvis said that coolroom equipment had been placed inside the bar area, against club wishes. The Club had wanted to extend the bar area, and asked permission of the Committee of Management. The Club was told that Mr D.O.J. ‘Toby’ McLeish had placed a claim for $200 per week lost wages following an accident at the course in November 1984. “The matter is in the legal process,” we reported in 1987.

What The Papers Say ‘Not broke’

■ Mayor Paul Volkering re-affirmed that Mansfield Shire Council is not broke. “Unless we take steps now, and I stress now, then we may end up going broke, but we owe it to the community to be responsible and authentic in taking a considered and measured approach, so that we maintain the services that people have come to expect,” he said. - Mansfield Courier

Heart of Victoria

■ The Discover the Heart of Victoria Planner was officially launched by Goulburn RiverValley Tourism at the Annual Visitor Information Centre Volunteers Summit in Shepparton, aiming to highlight the wonderful things in the region. The 68-page full-colour planner is the fourth edition of the hugely popular guide to the Goulburn River Valley and all that there is to discover in the majestic region known as the Heart of Victoria. - Seymour Telegraph

$10.3 million haul

■ The Australian Tax Office, with the assistance of Victoria Police, has executed three warrants on illegal tobacco plantations, including at one property on the Shepparton Rd outside of Euroa. An estimated $10.36 million worth of tobacco was taken from the three properties, and the ATO reported finding and destroying a combined total of 25 acres of crop at properties in Yarroweyah, near Cobram, and Euroa. - Euora Gazette

Fatal intersection

■ The family of a motorcyclist killed in Lilydale’s Main St have called for something to be done about the dangerous intersection. It comes as tributes flow for Rick (Kippa) Dale, who was on his way to lay flowers on the graves of his partner and baby when the accident happened on Maroondah Hwy, near Hutchinson St, about 1.20pm on Friday, May 5. The 40-year-old Berwick man died when his motorcycle collided with a four-wheel drive. - Lilydale and Yarra Valley Leader

Spate of thefts

■ Police have stepped up patrols in Healesville with a spate of thefts numbering over two dozens from vehicles and sheds in recent weeks. Three properties on Don Rd were hit overnight on Tuesday May 9, with a wallet, an iPod and jewellery among the items stolen. The same household was targeted a couple of days later with the thieves returning to rifle through two cars on the property. - Mountain Views Mail

Name change

■ Whittlesea Council is looking to change the name of an Epping street which shares its moniker with international terror group ISIS. The council has taken down street signs for Isis Lane after getting a complaint. The Council is proposing changing the name to Aditi Lane after consulting with the Office of Geographic Names. - Whittlesea Leader

Rainbow flag

■ Darebin Council raised the rainbow flag over Preston City Hall in a show of solidarity with the LGBTIQ (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex Queer) community. Mayor Kim Le Cerf said the flag would remain until marriage equality was law in Australia. “People who identify themselves as LGBTIQ make up more than 10 per cent of our community and are twice as likely to experience poor mental health outcomes as a direct result of the stigma, prejudice and discrimination they experience every day,” she said. - The Leader

Latest News

Visual arts at Middle Kinglake ■ “At Middle Kinglake Primary School we are committed to supporting the wellbeing and engagement of our students,” writes Principal Meagan Callander “We understand that strong emotional health and a positive sense of wellbeing within our students increases their learning capacity, improves school connectedness and strengthens positive peer relationships and resilience. “In addition to our engaging and individualised teaching approach we offer a variety of programs and services to develop student wellbeing and emotional literacies including our Chaplaincy Program, Girls' Groups, Middle Mates Social Skills Program, Drumbeat, Student Leadership roles, private psychologist and Mother Daughter, Father Son evenings. “As a part of our ongoing commitment to student wellbeing Middle Kinglake Primary School is implementing the Enhancing Emotional Literacy through Visual Arts (ELVA) approach developed through the Dax Centre in Melbourne and independently evaluated by the Melbourne University. “Two staff from Middle Kinglake Primary School and one from the Kinglake Ranges Child Care Centre have completed the 18-month long training, in partnership with Smouldering Stump and IAG who have provided the funding for staff to complete the training. “Emotional literacy is the ability to be aware, express and respond to emotional experiences. The aim of emotional literacy is for children to be emotionally alive, emotionally aware and connected with themselves, others and with experiences. “ELVA uses visual arts as the tool to create the time, space and place for children to reflect on their emotional experiences and interact with others to express these within a safe and supportive environment. “Mrs Wilkinson has been implementing ELVA over the past sixweeks with the students from Grades 4, 5 and 6. Their unit of work has

‘In Our Schools’ Local Feature

been 'Containers'. The purpose of the container unit is to decorate containers outside for ourselves, and making symbols to place inside about memories and feelings. “This links to identity, inside and outside feelings and valuing memories. “During and after the unit students can evaluate whether some interests have changed and ask themselves: ■ How have I changed? ■ What do others know about me? ■ How do they see me? “It gives students the chance to express their feelings and emotions in a way that is meaningful to themselves, symbolically and creatively and help identify who they are. “The students from Grades 4, 5 and 6 have been totally engaged in the ELVA sessions and the feedback has been fabulous. Feedback from students includes: ■ 'It's the best thing I've ever done in art.' ■ 'It's really fun. I can't wait for the inside to express feelings without people noticing because it just doesn't say anything, it's just art.' ■ 'Best thing I've ever done at school.' ■ 'It's fun because you can chat and do your work and keep secrets to yourself.' ■ 'It's one of the best art activities I've done because you can express feelings.' ■ 'I really like it because it's 3D and a long term project.' ■ 'It's something just for you that you can have. ■ 'It's the best thing I've ever done in my life because it's fun.' After witnessing the success of the ELVA approach so far, Principal Meagan Callander said Middle Kinglake Primary School is hoping to implement it across all grade levels.

KINGLAKE FOOTBALL CLUB REPORT ■ Despite Kinglake being 17 points up at halftime, Powelltown regained the lead late in the final quarter to win by 10 points. Powelltown 15.15 (105) defeated Kinglake 14.11 (95). Powelltown's Dan Rees took the opening shot for goal kicking a behind. This was quickly followed by Matt Lord kicking Powelltown's first goal from 40 metres out and another Powelltown goal leaving Powelltown 5.5 (34) to Kinglake 3.3 (21) at the first break. At the quarter-time break, Kinglake coach Wilkinson said: “Despite opening with pressure we (Kinglake) tailed right off." "We only managed 13 tackles and 15 inside 50s to (Powelltown's) 11 but we are butchering the thing going inside (50m)" Kinglake's Zac White opened the second quarter with a diving, running mark in the forward 50 kicking a goal and quickly followed this up with another goal, with Kinglake winning most centre ruck contests. Zac then kicked the third goal of the quarter to see Kinglake take the lead by three points. This was soon followed by playing coach Brad Wilkinson kicking another goal to see Kinglake up by nine points. Just as the siren sounded Kinglake's Michael Fitzclarence snapped from the boundary to see Kinglake go into the main break with a 17-point lead. Powelltown 7.7 (49) Kinglake 10.6 (66). Powelltown came out determined in the third quarter having the first shot at goal, but missed. Kinglake soon followed with the first goal of the third. Before long Powelltown had found their feet, kicking two quick goals to narrow the margin to just eight points. This quarter would be tight with the lead continually changing. Powelltown's James Rohan and Scott Carter then kicked two quick goals to see Powelltown lead by four points. Just before the siren Kinglake's Zac White goals with Kinglake going into the final quarter with a three-point lead. Powelltown 12.11 (83), Kinglake 13.8 (86). With no bench Kinglake would go into the final quarter undermanned with both teams trying to extend and keep their narrow lead. With 10 minutes left Kinglake were leading by two points until Powelltown kicked for goal and missed, making it a one-point game. Kinglake keep trying to penetrate their forward 50 but Powelltown's defence kept Kinglake from scoring. With a few minutes left, it was Powelltown 97 to Kinglake 95 as Powelltown slowed down ball movement to 'run out the clock. Powelltown had three more shots at goal with one hitting the post and one missing the goals for a point. Then just as the siren sounded the footy was kicked through the Powelltown goals to see the Demons win by 10 points in a close game that either side could have won. Powelltown 15.15 (105) defeated Kinglake 14.11 (95). Kinglake currently sit sixth on the ladder with Powelltown in fifth. This week Kinglake are at home to Alexandra and Powelltown play Seville away.

YEA JUNIOR FOOTBALL CLUB REPORT UNDER 16

■ Yea Under 16 faced one of the toughest challenges in junior footy taking on the strong Euroa line -up on their home ground. Conditions were perfect but the Tigers were quietly confident of an upset. Euroa did all the attacking early with the Yea backline holding firm. After some scrappy play on the outer wing Firmin found McMaster who had found some space and then kicked to R. Hargreaves for the Tigers first.Yea 1. 1. (7) to Euroa 1.0 (6). The second term was a tough hard affair with both teams having an equal amount of the play but some less than perfect kicking into the forwards allowed Euroa to repel many Yea attacks. Although not scoring themselves Yea held Euroa to one goal for the quarter. Half time: Yea 1.1 (7), Euroa 2 .3 (15). Yea had the majority of the play in the third but just couldn't get the score on the board until Bulbeck snapped truly and was then followed by two quick goals to Beattie, the last just before the siren to leave the scores level at threequarter time: 4.3 (27) each. Yea were matching it with the bigger opposition and when Bulbeck kicked his second an upset was on the cards,but the more experienced Magpies wouldn't go away and kicked three goals in the final minutes to take the game from Yea's grasp. Final scores: Yea 5.3 (33) to Euroa 7.5 (47). Goals: Beattie 2, Bulbeck 2, R Hargreaves 1. Better players over the four quarters were J. Aldous, N. Beattie, N. Gilbee, K. Hildebrand , J. Bulbeck and J. Harding in an excellent team effort in an entertaining, hard game. - Jack McMaster

UNDER 12 Euroa 4.2.26 d Yea 3.5.23 The undefeated Tigers rolled out of the fog and into the sunshine at Euroa to face off against their nemesis. Having been rolled by Euroa forever Sunday’s game was the one that the team wanted. Jardine Nai kicked our first as he copped a heavy knock in what was a tight high quality first quarter. Euroa led into the break, with a Yea comeback with a 40m rooster snapped from Riley Slevin. All locked up at half-time, 3.0.18 apiece. A captain’s quarter inspired the team as they pressed forward and edged in front leaving Euroa scoreless but failed to capitalise with only four points. Euroa kicked an early goal in the last taking the lead as the high quality game rose to another level. Neither side giving an inch, end to end, desperate football with time running out when Yea went deep into the pocket at the city end. The crowd was on the edge of their seats with seconds left in the game, then came a flurry out of the pack towards goal as the crowd rose to its feet saw the ball crash into the post, then a sigh later, the siren. Euroa won the thriller by four points. The raw emotion felt by the Tigers showed how much they wanted this one. Hold your heads high Tigers and be proud in what was a cracker of a game.

YEA NETBALL REPORT B-GRADE

■ This was the Grand Final rematch from last season, but whilst Yea's line up has slightly altered, the Seville side arrived with a totally new and thrown together outfit. On paper Yea were expected to cruise to victory and that ended up the case in what was perhaps a Yea B-Grade scoring record. No team should ever be judged on previous results, so the Yea girls didn't go in over confident at all. However, their confidence soon grew as they started the game brilliantly and it became evident that their skill level and ability was above their opposition. The defensive end were fantastic, denying Seville opportunities to shoot and on multiple occasions intercepting the ball before it could reach the goal circle. Chels and Rach did a power of work on the Seville centre pass and this gave Rhi the time and confidence to intercept the incoming ball. Yea had things pretty much their own way in attack and shot 25 goals in the first quarter, 25 more than their opponents. Cindy N and Ruby were brilliant in the midcourt and their combination around the circle edge seemed almost effortless as they used the space and timing to perfection. Cindy H and Reggie both moved well in the circle, the latter making strong drives to the post where she was rewarded with the feed from the mids. Both shooters were having a day out and were in a great rhythm on the shot. As is the Tigers sportsmanship and great spirit, they were just as vocal and encouraging of Seville when they scored their first goal, and subsequent goals in the middle two quarters. By three quarter time the Tigers were leading 66-3. Rotations were made in the last quarter, with only two players remaining in their original positions. Rhi made the move to GS and gave her opponent a bath, using the space allowed to her brilliantly. She shot 20 goals for the quarter with great feeds in by Reggie at WA and Chels who was having a run in the centre. Loz Cronk was as reliable as ever, and her move from GK to WD saw her combining well with Rach as they consistently moved the ball into the attacking end. Soph Stares had a stint with the B's this week and played the last in GK, making numerous intercepts and deflections, as well as a ripper rejection. Overall there was little to fault in the Tigers game, as they executed a well drilled and confident four quarter performance. Well done girls. Yea 92 def Seville 3 Goals: R. Bell 36, C. Hayes 36, R.

A-GRADE

The A-Grade girls deservedly got back on the winners’ list with a comprehensive victory over fierce rival Seville. In contrast to their B-Grade team, Seville boasted a more competitive side, mainly filled with lower grade players, but still of good ability. The Tigers started well, getting the goals on the board early to set up a handy buffer to work on throughout the match. Meg proved to be a great focal point at GS, using great footwork to find front position under the post. Brooke and Bridget were back together in defence and they proved a dynamic team to restrict Seville to just two goals for the quarter. Sarah and Chel’s work outside the defensive ring was vital, making sure the feed came from off the circle to give the 2 B's more chances at the intercept. Yea took a 16-2 goal lead to the break. Sophie Stares and Sophie Watts entered the game on the wings in the second quarter and provided the team a different look. Soph Watts combined well with her sister

Nikki across the attacking transverse line and Soph Stares used her height and long arms to get her hands to many balls. At times the Tigers were a little patchy with their passing and transition which gave Seville more opportunities and they were able to convert a little more in this second quarter but Yea still won the quarter and led 31-12 at half time. Coach Cindy was able to make the most of all nine players and in the third quarter she moved the talented Nikki in to C and the versatile Megan into GA. Both girls slotted well into their positions but kept Meg as their main target early until Megan found her feet back in the goal circle. Once she found her range, Megan shot beautifully for the remainder of the game. Defensively the girls played a tight game right down the court and were rewarded with many favourable turnovers and held ball decisions. Once again the circle defenders were a standout and kept Seville to 4 goals. Yea 46 - 12 at the last break. Yea players didn't take their feet of the peddle in the last quarter and went on to play a great quarter with many impressive passages of play. Chels drove strongly all through the court and defensively she has improved out of sight with strong footwork and closing speed to contest the ball. Meg finished the game strongly at GS to end up with 39 goals. A great win girls which has kick-started what will be a good month of games to come. Well done. Yea 62 def Seville 25 Goals: M.

ALEXANDRA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB SENIORS

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League Round 5 of the 2017 season last Saturday saw the Rebels travel to Thornton for two games of football and three games of netball on a near perfect late autumn day, contrary to predictions. The Reserves, with the customary multiple changes proved too good for Thornton Eildon in a disappointingly scrambly game as Alex, with a couple of tall recruits always looked the better side but struggled to put that into effect onto the scoreboard. Doug Smith taking over at full forward from Chris McKay kicked a goal with his first kick in the Alex colours and with his physique will be an acquisition to the team whilst high leaping ruckman Jacob Brereton playing his first game after an early injury will definitely step up into the senior side in the near future. Another new player Tim Fielden also fits nicely into the team and plays with plenty of desire. Another player presenting his name to

SENIORS

The Seniors ran out and the ground matched the day as Alex prepared to defend the Barry Sprague Thompson Cup with Alex forced to make two changes to the team with Scott Hill and Steve Steiner replacing the injured Matt Steiner and Rhys Steward. Alex began to the southern end and went forward from the first bounce and Zach Heaslip had a goal on the scoreboard in less than a minute but the next goal did not come as easy as the game tightened up with the home side equal to the contest. Luke Heard was involved early and he firstly gave Will Goonan an opportunity but he was offline then he received from Brayden Norris for Alexandra's second goal. Thornton Eildon continued to tackle and contest and was rewarded with their first goal after an Alex defensive error. Ben Cooper as courageous as ever kept pushing forward and Brayden Norris was strangely wayward as the teams went to the first break level with 2.2 each. The home side excited their big crowd of supporters with the first goal of the second quarter and the lead but Alex came back with a behind after great ball movement out of defence and then Heard was again involved as he hand passed to Will Goonan for a goal. The home side got the next goal before Callum Tranter missed and then Stephen Steiner using his strength in the centre found Heard for the big forward's second goal. Ryley Norris running into form forwarded to Jake Steyger in the square for an easy goal but Thornton Eildon was matching the Rebels for intensity and goaled twice to again excite the faithful. Nathan Dundas, also winning plenty of the football through the centre, found Scott Hill on the Clubrooms side and the usually accurate forward regained the lead by the narrowest of margins as the teams left the field for half time. Upon resumption, Alex moved the ball well from defence but Brent McDonald's kick hit the post and Alexandra was now getting on top around the ground but it was not showing on the scoreboard as they were often astray. Steiner continued his strong work around the clearances and found Brayden Norris for his first goal for the game. The Alex defence continued to press forward with the dashing Scott Heveren gaining many metres every time he won possession. With Heard off injured, Alex had to restructure with Chris Mullins using his strength in the ruck and Will Goonan going back into defence to join his brother. Brayden Norris, now looking dangerous goaled again before Jordan Purcell running from half back had a chance for a rare goal but his kick was a defender's kick. Alex led by only ten points at the last change so the game was still up for grabs. Alex began to use the ball well by foot and was much more efficient up forward as Norris kicked his third successive goal followed by another to Hill. Alex now was playing the game in their half and further goals to Steiner and Cooper (2) along with Michael Coombs and Hill resulted in a comfortable victory 15.14 - 104 to Thornton Eildon
