● Cindy McLeish

● Country Tech at Alexandra is holding its birthday sale. Pictured at the Grant St store are Vaughan Jackson and Daniel Kriss.

after months of delay, Ms McLeish said. "The Government's report indicates that timber harvesting and conservation of Leadbeater's Possum can co-exist. “The Andrews Government must get on with recommended comprehensive survey work because this review shows population estimates were inaccurate and have distorted government policy," Ms McLeish said. She said the review confirmed: ■ More possums have been detected than expected with 618 confirmed colonies. ■ More than 90 per cent of the possum's potential, or most likely occupied, habitat in the Central Highlands has never been surveyed. "Daniel Andrews must decide if he's backing a $7 billion industry that support up to 50,000 jobs across Victoria, or if he's going to sacrifice all of that in order to save a couple of inner city Labor seats with Greens preferences next election," Ms McLeish said.

Recovery plan

■ A plan which will guide waste and resource recovery infrastructure in the Goulburn Valley for the next 10 years was this week approved after almost three years in development. The Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan was announced by the Acting Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Richard Wynne and promotes greater recovery of valuable resources from waste, through development of appropriate, well-sited infrastructure. This approach minimises the waste sent to landfill and the long-term costs to households, industry and government. Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Group Chair, Seema Abdullah said the plan covers the Campaspe, Shepparton, Strathbogie, Moira, Murrindindi and Mitchell local government areas. "This Plan addresses the needs created by projected population growth and expectations of our regional community when it comes to this essential service. "We have been fortunate to have had significant stakeholder interest and input in the development of our Regional Implementation Plan, which has helped us to understand the projections and community sentiment on various waste topics," Ms Abdullah said. The GV Implementation Plan is one of seven regional implementation plans that will provide an understanding of their region's waste and resource recovery infrastructure needs, environmental and financial performance, projected waste volumes, urban growth and industry demands. The regional plans will inform updates to the 30 year state infrastructure plan which will incorporate regional priorities and opportunities. The alignment that this creates is a huge advantage as it provides certainty of direction for those wishing to invest in the space.

Central Goldfields CEO charged ■ Central Goldfields Shire Chief Executive Officer Mark Johnston has been hit with over 40 charges following a comprehensive investigation by the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate. The Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate presented Mr Johnston with 41 charges in total including two charges under the Local Government Act relating to conflict of interest, 34 charges under the Crimes Act relating to obtaining financial advantage by deception, and five charges of false accounting. The charges were filed in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court last Friday. Chief Municipal Inspector David Wolf said the charges were laid after a long and complex investigation with several matters dating back a number of years. LGICI investigators raided the council’s shire offices in September. Central Goldfields Shire Council Mayor Geoff Lovett has been advised of the matter, the LGICI confirmed. The matter is listed for initial hearing at the Maryborough Magistrates’ Court onAugust 31. In a statement, the LGICI said no further comment can be made as the matter is now before the courts. Mr Johnston was appointed Central Goldfields Shire CEO in 1995, following amalgamation of the City of Maryborough, the former Shire of Tullaroop, Shire of Bet Bet and the Shire of Talbot and Clunes. - Maryborough District Advertiser

"For those people living alongside Lake Eildon and the Goulburn River, water is central to our way of life and to the strength of our community. That's why it is so important that Parliament better understands how environmental water is used and managed," Ms McLeish said. The Victorian Parliament's Environment, Natural Resources and Regional Development Committee is inviting community input to the inquiry, with public submissions due by 25 August 2017. Under the terms of reference for the inquiry, the Committee will assess: ■ the role of environmental water management in preventing or causing 'blackwater' events ■ the use of water management tools such as carryover and their impact on the availability of water for irrigators ■ any barriers to more efficient use of environmental water and how those should be addressed ■ the fees and charges applied and whether they differ from those imposed on other water users. "As well as making submissions to the inquiry, locals are also welcome to forward their views directly to my office," Ms McLeish said.

What The Papers Say $3.5m for roads

■ Strathbogie Shire Council has made roads a high priority in the new Council Plan and Budget, investing $3.5 million into the road network in the coming years. “One exciting item in the budget is the lease of an additional heavy grader, which will significantly increase road maintenance. “In the first 12 months, this will mean an upgrade to over 60 of our currently ‘Class 0’ roads, which will receive drainage, gravel spreading and grading work to bring them to a ‘Class 1’ standard.” - Euroa Gazette

Bus stop change

■ “Not everyone would be happy with Strathbogie Shire Council’s most recent proposed idea of changing the parking in High St, Nagambie, especially the removal of V/ Line bus stops back to the now disused train station. “It’s quite a distance away and not a good walk, especially if you’re disabled and/or elderly, as I am. I was hoping to travel to Nagambie by bus, knowing that I would be dropped off in High St and could enjoy a late breakfast near the lake, but should this proposal go ahead, I for one won’t be going there — it will be too hard to manage. Re-think this, please.” - Bronwyn Henry - Seymour Telegraph

Plastic bag free

■ Plastic free July is an international movement that encourages people to reduce - or eliminate - the plastic from daily life, and the Mansfield community has thrown its support behind the idea. Already, a number of Mansfield shops are getting behind Plastic Free July by choosing to not offer them as a choice to customers – these include All Things Natural and Organic, Hoffmans Green Grocer, Jabeta Creations and Country Tales Bookstore. - Mansfield Courier

Black Hat plot

■ A book launched on Sunday 9 July is set to turn the traditional understanding behind the final closure of Coranderrk Aboriginal Station on its head. Author Mick Woiwod launched the book, Barak vs The Black Hats of Melbourne, at the Rosina Auditorium in the grounds of the Abbotsford Convent as part of NAIDOC Week. The latest of Mick Woiwood’s 21 history books, the 350-page volume is the culmination of half a life-time of passion for the history and stories of Aboriginal Victoria and the result of decades of research. - Mountaun Views Mail

Hangar anger

■ More users of the Benalla airfield are threatening to move their aircraft elsewhere after Benalla Rural City Council refused to budge on a sixfold increase in the cost of hangar leases from 75¢ to $5 per year per square metre. Gliding Club of Victoria President John Switala told The Ensign the club was so dissatisfied with the council’s management of the airport redevelopment and the increase in lease charges, the club was looking at other airfields. - Benalla Ensign

Beyond dreams

■ A standard three-bedroom house in South Morang sold a staggering $110,000 beyond its owner’s reserve. Seven bidders competed for the home that sold to a first-home buyer from Bundoora for $690,000. - Whittlesea Leader

Nillumbik shake-up

■ Three new directors have been appointed at Nillumbik Council as the chief executive shakes things up in an organisational restructure. Matt Kelleher was appointed planning and services director, Hjalmar Philipp assumed the role of sustainability and place director, while Rachel Cooper is business and strategy director. - Diamond Valley Leader

Frederick Wheeler, a father of Alexandra ■ “Mr. F. Wheeler, who has lived in this district for nearly half a century, last week took his farewell to reside in Melbourne,” reported the Alexandra newspaper. “He was born at Henley-onThames, in 1847, and received his early education at the Henley Grammar School. “On leaving school he went to London, and entered the employment of Mr. William Smith, chemist, of Walworth-road. “He remained with him till he left England in 1864 for Australia. “His first position under the Southern Cross was with Dr. James Boyd of Bendigo (then Sandhlurst), as dispenser. “He left him in 1865, to join his brother in Robe-street St. Kilda, as assistant. “He subsequently returned to Dr. Boyd but finally left him in 1866 to take an appointment with Dr. Smart, in Hobart, at the pharmacy at the corner of Liverpool and Murrmay streets. “This place he left in '67, to go to Ghin Ghin, where diggings had broken out, and there was a considerable gold rush. “While at Ghin Ghin he opened a pharmacy in Yea in 1868. Next he settled in Gobur, in 1899, where there was another gold rush. “His next move was to Alexandra in May, 1871, where he remained up to the time of his selling out a few weeks back. “During that lengthy period he occupied many public positions. In 1873 he was elected to the council for Gobur, and thence on, at various periods, for 18 years. “In those days the Shire was divided into Ridings. “He served two years consecutively as President. He was the first treasurer of the Upper Goulburn Railway League, when it was originally formed to extend the railway from Tallarook toward Alexandra, and always took a lively interest in endeavouring to consummate that object. “In the early days he took an active part in securing the erection of an hospital in Alexandra, which greatly profited by his services. “He was appointed a J.P. and altogether held this position for 26 years. “He attended to his duties well and faithfully, and was always esteemed a fair, just and fearless magistrate, adminstering the law as he found it. “At the present time he holds the following offices under the Government. He is Deputy Coronor, the Government's appointee as Commissioner on the Water Trust, the magistrate to give consent to the marriage of minors. “He is also a trustee of the Alexandra racecourse and recreation grounds and a trustee of the cemetery. “He was the first president of the Tourist and Anglers Society, which did so much to first bring Alexandra before the public, and under the notice of tourists and anglers. “As a business man, Mr Wheeler always had his eyes open for the commerical possibilities of the district. “Back in the seventies he started the cordial factory, which has been in active operation ever since. He subsequently boughtt out the business conducted by Mr. Wood at

“In public life, he had taken a leading part in all departments. Mr. Wheeler was one of the best public men the district had had. “It was hard to say good-bye, but he trusted Mr. Wheeler was going to better himself. All his friends wished him and his family joy and good luck. “Mr. Baird said he was sorry to have to say good-bye. He was not in a position to speak of Mr Wheeler's good works in public life, because that was before he came into this district. “But he had been told, had there been no Wheeler there would have been no Alexandra. “He had taken an interest in the mines. They had impoverished him. He still believed there was more gold in the hills than ever came out. “Mr. Wheeler was a good crib player. He (the speaker) knew that, because he was one of his pupils. Mr Wheeler was a good all-round sport. His pluck always stuck to him. “In the council he had been a ruling and moving spirit. Alexandra would never have got the railway except for him. He would be a loss to the town. He had brought up a family. “His son, Eric, was as good a fellow as had been reared in the district. He had the makings of a good man, and if he lived to the age of his father would make the name of Wheeler honoured. He wished him all good fortune (Applause). Mr. T. A. Fox said the question might well be asked, where are the boys of the old brigade? As Mr. Wheeler sat there he had to feel alone. for the companions of other days are either gone from the district, were unable to come, or were under the turf. Turn To Page 37

125-year anniversary for Yea Freemasons ■ The 125th anniversary of a Masonic Lodge being established in Yea in 1892 will occur this year. But the Lodge’s opening night almost did not occur - because of a last-minute argument with the Yea Shire Council. “We learn that a Masonic Lodge, under the title of ‘The Duke of Clarence’,will be opened in Yea on Thursday, October 6, at the Commercial Hotel, when the installation of officers will take place followed by the customary banquet,” reported the Yea newspaper on September 15, 1892. Within one week, the event had graduated from the Commercial Hotel (now Country Club Hotel) to the Yea Shire Hall: “A large number of invitations have been issued by the Yea Masons to members of the craft in Kilmore, Seymour, Mansfield, and Alexandra, for the opening of the Duke of Clarence Lodge, which takes place at the Yea Shire Hall on Thursday, October 6. “The Grand Lodge Officers will also come from Melbourne to Yea on that occasion, and a large gathering of the brethren is confidently expected.” Members of the Lodge approached the Yea Shire to use the Council Chamber at the Shire Hall for the inauguration. “The deputation from the Duke of Clarence Lodge, consisting of Messrs. J. B. Mummery, C. Anderson, and W. W. Perry, waited on the Council, to request the use of the council-chamber for the inauguration ceremony on Thursday (today),” reported the October 6 issue of The Yea Chronicle. “Mr. Mummery said they were told they could get the hall on paying for it, and they came to the Council to request the use of the councilchamber also for the ceremony in connection with the opening of the Lodge. The hall would be used afterwards. “They did not ask for any rebate, but they might do so afterwards, as they intended to take the hall for 12 conseeutive meetings. “Cr. Condon proposed -"That the request of Messrs. Mummery, Anderson, and Perry for use of Shire HaIl and council-chamber for October 6 be granted on the usual terms." “They had never refused the hall so long as they knew that those who took it would not injure it in any way and he was quite sure these gentlemen would look after it. “Cr.

● Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence

Named after Duke of Clarence

■ Yea’s Masonic Lodge, formed in 1892, was named in honour of the Duke of Clarence, who had died earlier in that year at age 28. Albert Victor Christian Edward, from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, was the eldest child of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), and grandson of the reigning British monarch, Queen Victoria. From the time of his birth, he was second in the line of succession to the British throne, but never became king: he died before his father and his grandmother, the Queen. Albert Victor was known to his family, and many later biographers, as ‘Eddy’. When young, he travelled the world extensively as a naval cadet, and as an adult he joined the British Army, but did not undertake any active military duties. After two unsuccessful courtships, he was engaged to be married to Princess Mary of Teck in late 1891. A few weeks later, he died during an influenza pandemic. Mary later married his younger brother Prince George, who became King George V in 1910. The Duke of Clarence’s death shocked the British Empire. Shops put up their shutters. The Prince of Wales wrote to Queen Victoria, "Gladly would I have given my life for his". Princess Mary wrote to Queen Victoria of the Princess of Wales, "the despairing look on her face was the most heart-rending thing I have ever seen." His younger brother Prince George wrote, "how deeply I did love him; and I remember with pain nearly every hard word and little quarrel I ever had with him and I long to ask his forgiveness, but, alas, it is too late now!” Source: Wikipedia

Lodge would prosper. P.M. Bro. Wheeler proposed "The newly installed W..M., Bro. Mummery," in flattering terms. Song, Bro. Petch " True to the last." Worshiptul Master Bro. Mummery responded. He was once a member of a lodge in Penrith, N.S.W., which was just the same as the Dake of Clarence, and not long ago he was visiting Sydney and took it into his head to visit the place and strange to say the Lodge held its meeting during his visit, and he was delighted to find it grown into a large and important body. “He had no doubt but that their Lodge would do the same. “He had known Bro. Baker for some 15 years. He liked his kind genial face; he liked his character, and he liked to hear of the good opinion others in and out of the Craft bore testimony to of him. “Strange to say that he (Bro. Mummery) was presented by Bro. Blashki with the working tools of a Mason on the present occasion and that he (Bro. Mummery) carried out the same duties when Bro. Blashki was first installed in the chair. “He thanked the brethren for the high honour that they had conferred on him, and promised to work zealously and faithfully for the cause. Song.Bro. McKay, "Jack's come home to-day.” Bro. Baker feelingly responded, complimenting the Freemasons in the district on their pluck in organising the starting of the new Lodge. Bro. Baker proposed "The Past Masters and Masters of sister Lodges." Recitation, Bro. Wheeler, "Advance Australia”. Bros. Blashki, MeKay, and Wheeler, of Mansfield, responded. Song, Bro. Wheeler, " Sally in our Alley." Bro. R.G. Neale responded for the visitors. Song, Senior Warden of the Kilmore Lodge, "I live like a lord." Bro. Baker proposed ' The Officers of the Duke of Clarence Lodge." Song, Bro. Leckie, "Far Away”. The Worshipful Master gave "The Press, and "Wanderer" respsonded Song, Bro. Anderson. "Poor and Distressed Masons" followed, after which the "Host and Hostess,"' who received great praise for tihe sumptuous spread; Bro. Anderson respondeds tating that if Masonry did nothing else, it had that day brought the most respectable looking body of men to Yea that he hal ever witnessed. "God Save the Queen" brought a most enjoyable gathering of the Craft to a close about midnight.” The November 10, 1892, issue of the Yea newspaper reported: “The new Masonic Lodge, the Duke of Clarence, held its first meeting since the consecration at the Yea Shire Hall on Thursday last, when two gentlemen were initiated into the mysteries of ancient Fremasonry . “The lodge is now in full working order, and any gentleman desirous of entering the craft can get full particulars from either of the following brethren: Messrs. Mummery, Sanders, Petch, Perry, Anderson, Williamson, and Wightman.

“The lodge is held on the Thursday on or before full moon, so that brethren from a distance will have the benefit of what has not been inaptly termed the ‘parish lantern’ to light them to their respective dwellings.” By January 1893, the Lodge was attempting to have its £1 monthly rental of the Yea Shire Hall reduced. The Chronicle reported: “From Wm. W. Perry, secretary to the Duke of Clarence Lodge, asking for the use of the council-chamber at a reduction in present price, £1 per meeting being rather more than the funds of the Lodge would allow; and the establishing of the Order in Yea was certain to have a powerful influence for good, they trusted the Council would see its way to reduce the present charge.-Reduction made to 10s. per night, on the motion of Crs Sandilands and Scale.” Cr Sandilands had originally been one of the opponents to the Lodge’s use of the Council chamber. “The annual installation and investiture of officers of the Duke of Clarence Lodge, No. 172, Yea, takes place at the Shire hall this evening, when Bro. J. B. Mummery; the Worshipful Master Elect, will be installed for the second time,” noted the October 26, 1893, issue. “Bro. J. A. Gordon, P.M., assisted by Bro. R. Irvine, W.M., of the Albert Edward Lodge, Alexandra, will perform the duties of Installing Master. “A large number of invitations have been sent by the W.M. to the various lodges in the surrounding districts and Melbourne.” In 1915, the June 3 issue of the Chronicle reported: “The ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new Masonic hall in High -street was performed on Saturday afternoon in the presence of a number of the Masonic fraternity the building is of solid brick, in places the wall being 14 inches thick, and is situated on a block of ground at the corner of High street and Craigie street, immediately opposite the old lodge room. “The size of the building is 25 x 50. and it comprises a lodge room of 25 x 35 and an ante room of 25 x 14. “The proceedings opened with a hymn, after which Bro J. Tosh, the W.M,, de livered an address on freemasonry. “This was followed by the chaplain (Bro. Rev, R. A. Scott) offering up a prayer, after which the secretary (Bro. S. Wall) read the inscription on the stone. “The junior warden (Bro, W. Taite) then plumbed the stone and the senior warden (Bro.J. Gracey) inspected the stone to see that the stone was laid true, Bro. G,. Buckley then placed oil, wine, and grain on the stone, after which P.M. Bro. J. Taite presented Bro. J. C. Sanders, one of the founders and treasurer of the lodge, with a silver trowel, with which the latter tapped the stone and declared it well and truly laid. “Another Masonic hymn was sung and the proceedings closed with the singing of the National Anthem.” The final meeting of the Lodge was held in Yea in October 2015. - Ash Long

Frederick Wheeler “Many would regret his departure. When he (the speaker) came into the district in '82 Saunders was a lad, Stillman was not here, Hill and Coghill and McVeigh were boys and Mr Wheeler was a bright and shining light in the life of the district. “In those days the council got £3 for every £1 raised. The council was a lively body. He was sorry some of the very old men were not able to be present to tell them what Wheeler did. “He was a leading spirit in the Railway League. In those days the railway was no nearer than Tallarook. MrWheeler must feel it deeply leaving a district where he had so many friends. He hoped to see him back again some day. He went with the good will of the whole community. “MrA. Christie said he was very, very sorry Mr. Wheeler was leaving the district. In the Bowling Club there was never a better skipper “What he took up he went in for heart and soul. When he spoke, he carried all with him. He was sorry Mr Wheeler was leaving them.

Plan for safety at Whittlesea ■ Victoria Police has joined forces with community, government and private sector stakeholders to establish an innovative crime prevention and detection body – Safety Alliance Victoria. Launching this week, Safety Alliance Victoria is a formal partnership between Victoria Police, RACV, Neighbourhood Watch, Crime Stoppers Victoria and Federation University which aims to improve the safety of all Victorians. Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Tess Walsh said it marked a new and exciting era in collaborative crime-fighting. “Safety Alliance Victoria is a dynamic group which understands how important it is that the community not only is safe, but feels safe and that’s what we want to achieve,” Assistant Commissioner Walsh said. “As an alliance our greatest strength will be in our ability to pool our passion, knowledge and resources to provide a collaborative and innovative approach to crime prevention in order to deliver long-term benefits for Victorians.” Safety Alliance Victoria will support a range of campaigns outlined in the Victoria Police Burglary Reduction Strategy, which aims to drive down residential burglaries by 10 per cent over four years Its first piece of work, Protect | Prevent, will be a six-month pilot utilising a recent innovation in traceable liquid property marking, which enables people to mark and register valuable items for future identification purposes. From August, local police and Neighbourhood Watch volunteers will deliver kits containing a unique synthetic DNA code to 1000 homes across Geelong and Whittlesea. Each kit will contain a clear liquid that can be applied to up to 50 valuable items including tablets, jewellery and appliances, and is registered to the people occupying the home. If a marked item is stolen and recovered then police can use a UV lamp to identify the presence of the liquid and then test it to determine the unique DNA code and its registered owner. Police hope the technology will assist people in safeguarding their possessions and homes in order to deter potential offenders. “This pilot is an Australian first; however the technology has already been utilised by police in the UK and New Zealand where it helped achieve significant reductions in burglary offences,” Assistant Commissioner Walsh said. “Because the technology was found to act as a deterrent to thieves, Protect | Prevent will be supported by visual saturation at a local level through street and house signage to help us achieve success.” RACV– one of the founding Alliance partners – said it was proud to play a pivotal role in reducing crime. “RACV knows that the Victorian community wants to see tangible, innovative solutions to tackle crime in our state,” Neil Taylor, CEO and Managing Director of RACV said. “We are a trusted advocate for Victorians both in their homes and on the move, and the strategic alliance is just another way RACV is working for its members in helping to create a safer Victoria.” Further work outlined in the Victoria Police Burglary Reduction Strategy includes improving police practice through more faceto-face contact with victims of residential burglary and their neighbours. - Contributed

Local Sport History

Yea v Kinglake match ANZAC Day Lakers heritage goesonback to 1925 With thanks to the Kinglake Football Club website ■ Kinglake and Yea are the arch rivals of Division 2 of the AFLYarra Ranges comp-etition. Yea won the first 2017 match; Kinglake had victory in the re-match. Local historians note that the Kinglake club was in operation between 1925 and 1980, reforming n 1990. Its premiership pedigree includes wins in 1939 and 1940 (Panton Hill District Football League); and 1994 (Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League). The Kinglake club also has a strong rcord of being runners-up in 1933, 1935 and 1936; as well as more recently in the YVMDFL. Guernsey colours have been: ■ Light blue (until 1940), ■ Green with Yellow "V" (19461981); ■ Yellow with Green "V" (19902000); ■ Green with three yellow "Lightning Bolts" (2002-2007). The "Three Mountain" design shows one large and two small green mountains rise from bottom of jumper to chest area with a yellow background, representing Kinglake East, Central and West. Details of the Kinglake club’;s early history is scrace. One of the early players and officials was John McMahon, born 1876. He played football for Kinglake in his youth and in his later years acted as goal umpire and timekeeper. McMahon supplied transport for the team for quite a few seasons. Kinglake F.C. joined the BourkeEvelyn Football League in 1930. The Kinglake team collected two flags in this era, at a time when the Club and the Panton Hill District Football League were in recess for two seasons, 1937-38. The competition was also in recess from 1941-46, due to World War II. Club history documentation says that a new local league was formed in 1947 by Andy Duff of Panton Hill, Col Sinclair of Hurstbridge, and Jeff Ashton of Kinglake, and known as the Panton Hill Football League (PHFL) and consisted of seven teams - Panton Hill, Wallan East, Plenty,

■ Aletter from ‘Willie Winner’ announced the formation of the Kinglake Football Club. The cheeky letter was published in the Hurstbridge-based Advertiser newspaper, published by Decimus H.

The editor announced: “We have received the:following let ter from Kinglake, and think it may be of great interest to readers:“Dear Brother,-We have now. formed a football. team, which will be known as the "Wiregrass Wander ers. "The club has joined the BourkeEvelyn Association, and is drawn to play Mernda in one of the local paddocks next Saturday. “This will be the first match to be played in public, and we all hope not the last. “I have not seen football played before our boys started, but I am convinced that they play, the game just as it should be played. “We have been playing against ourselves lately, but next Saturday we will all be playing on the one side, and,a great side it will be! “We expect to do much better at football than cricket, because we will be playing eighteen men instead of

Yea 9.9 (63) defeated by Yarra Glen 16.19 (115) For the second week in a row, Yea played three good quarters but were outlasted by their opposition, with Yarra Glen running away by 52 points at the Recreation Reserve. The first term was an arm wrestle until the last five minutes, as the visitors slammed on two late goals to take a 22-point buffer into the quarter time break. The lead stretched to nearly five goals by half-time before the Tigers booted three majors to one in the third, cutting the margin back to 20 points heading into the last term. After David Webb reduced the difference to 15 points, Yea looked set to launch a final challenge but Yarra Glen stood strong, booting eight of the last 10 goals to close out the match. Zac Pell was outstanding for the home side, controlling the ruck and proving a handful when floating forward with two goals, while Cameron Evans continued his purple patch in the midfield. Riley Aldous did a power of work in the middle of the ground, Webb (three goals) was dangerous in the forward line, Tyrone Lang played his best senior game and Harrison Jarvie was in everything once again. The Tigers’ running, short kicking game was on display, particularly in the third quarter, but as was the case against Powelltown last week, it couldn't be maintained for the entire match. Yea travel to Seville on Saturday. Yea. Goalkickers: D. Webb 3, Z. Pell 2, H. Jarvie, T. Lang, P. Evans, R. Aldous. Best Players: H. Jarvie, C. Evans, R. Aldous, D. Webb, Z. Pell, E.

Yea 3.1 (19) defeated by Yarra Glen 14.17 (101) Yea battled hard but were outclassed by a polished Yarra Glen outfit, eventually going down by 82 points. The Tigers got off to a great start, keeping in touch with their highly fancied opponents with two early goals to trail by five points at the first change. A five goal to zero second quarter effectively killed the contest, and although Yea managed to slow the visitors scoring in the second half, the game was over. Ash O'Neil was a welcome sight in the yellow-and-black with a best on ground performance, Jaryed Garlick racked up possessions at will and Rhys Ali played his second blinder in two weeks. Jack Sundblom continued his excellent season and Ben Middleton produced his best effort in recent weeks, while Brendan Bullen found plenty of the football through the middle of the ground. The Tigers are still in finals contention, sitting one game behind fifth placed Seville and with four winnable games in the next month. A massive game against the Blues in Seville will take place this weekend. Yea. Goalkickers: A. Justice, D. Ali, T. Butterworth. Best Players: A. Oneill, J. Garlick, R. Ali, J. Sundblom, B.

NS, WD- Sophie Stares. NS, GK - Brooke Lloyd. ■ It was a slow start for the Yea Tigers before they found their groove. Meg and Nikki were shooting well and working well with both Soph W and Chelsea . Sarah, Megan and Bridget were impressive in defence, pulling in rebounds and taking some amazing intercepts. The second quarter was a much better quarter with Tigers shooting 13 goals to 8. Megan moved into WA, Brooke came on into GK and Soph S came on into WD. Soph played one of her best games of the year and Brooke was impressive defensively. Third quarter was aneven quarter with the Tigers chipping away and making sure they hold possession. Soph W came back on into WA and Sarah moved into the C position. They were effective through the midcourt, driving hard and attacking the ball. The fourth quarter was the Tigers’ best quarter. Working as a team the Tigers showed what they are capable of. It was an amazing game of netball to watch. Well done girls. We hope to see them work harder and come home with the win next weekend when we come up against Seville.

Rach and Lauren tried everything to shut down the shooters, Chels was amazing in the WD position, shutting down the WA. Cindy and Kate were once again strong in attack, placing the ball wel into Reggie and Rhi. It was a great start to the game, with Yea shooting 13 to 11 goals. Second quarter there was just the one swap in defence with Rach coming out to GD and Lauren dropping back into GK. It wasn't Yea's best quarter and they had to come together to hit the lead. Tigers were just behind Yarra Glen by one goal at half-time. Going into the third quarter little superstar Ruby O'Dwyer was outstanding through the midcourt, working well with Kate, Reggie and Rhi. Defensively, Ruby took some amazing intercepts, as well as Chels. Cindy moved back into the GK position and worked incredibly well with Rach, rebounding and intercepting Yarra Glen's passes. It was even at the end of the third quarter, so the Tigers had to push on and break Yarra Glen. In the fourth quarter the Tigers tried everything to break Yarra Glen but due to some errors Yarra Glen broke back and it resulted in a one-point loss. Credit to all girls for fighting until the end and not giving up. Yarra Glen 36 def Yea 35 Goals: R. Bell 6, R. Aldous 25, K. Elliot 4 Best: R. Aldous, C. Newcomen, K. Elliot Award: Cindy Newcomen

YEA NETBALL REPORTS GK - Deborah Schickerling. NS, C - Jordan Watts. NS, GA, WD - Kim Slavin. ■ This game meant a lot to the C-Grade girls, holding a secure spot on top of the ladder. It all started with our defensive pressure all over the court, making Yarra Glen cough up possession. Fiona was moving incredibly well, creating space for Jess to hold. Molly and Jude showed some strong drives in attack, whilst, Emily, Ruby and Deb applied some heavy one on one pressure in defence. It was a great start for the Tigers and they couldn't give up. The second quarter Tigers kept working on workload and applying that pressure all the way down the court. The third quarter the Tigers dropped off in intensity but lucky enough we had a decent lead that Yarra Glen couldn't close the gap. Jordan came on into the C and Kim came on into GA. They both slotted in nicely, really stepping up and giving some direction through the midcourt. Deb, Ruby and Emily were still creating turnovers and building on possession and composure. In the last Yea brought it home with a solid 11-goal win. Everyone played so well and its finally showing what we are capable of when we are up against tough sides, like Yarra Glen. C-Grade will now have two games off, which means they will have to do some individual sessions to keep the legs going. Well done C-Graders on yet another wonderful win.

NS, GS - Molly Toulson. NS, WA, WD - Harriet Vlamis. NS, WA - Ebony Keenan. ■ It was a slow and cold start for D-Graders, which meant Yarra Glen could stay within. Alicia and Amy were moving well, Rhi and Harriet were communicating well and defenders, Jill, Leisa and Sarah were once again all over every ball. It wasn't their best start, which meant they had to step it up in the second. In saying that the Tigers didn't do just that. There was a lack of communication all down the court and it was very quiet. Molly came on into GS which worked well with Amy. Tess and India were in the midcourt, trying to find some space and do some pre-movements before driving onto the ball. Defenders stayed the same this quarter, as they were outstanding last week. Going into the third quarter, the Tigers had to start again and fight back. Coach Deb gave some direction in hope that the Tigers could lift. Deb put Alicia and Amy back in the goal circle, with Ebony and Rhi running the middle. Jill moved back into GK, whilst Sarah moved out into GD. Going into the last, the Tigers couldn't give up, they had to keep chipping away and working on the little things for the games to come. Bad luck girls. D-Grade will now have a week off and play Thorton-Eildon the following week at TE. Yarra Glen 26 def Yea 10 Goals: A. O'Connor 8, A. Smith-Jones 2 Best: S. Lobley, J. Hargreaves, A.

■ Pressure was tight from the Tigers from the start. Teagan and Ebony rebounded strongly. Hannah B shot beautifully. Jordan W used Caitlyn and Sophie around the ring to position herself better to goal. Vivi stuck tight to her player. It was a close first quarter with Yea only down by 3. Yea 4, Euroa 7. Yea’s mid court has improved a lot this week with the girls leading to the ball making it flow nicely down court. Yea’s defenders made Euroa work hard for every ball. Maggie presented herself well in WA down the court and around the ring. 9-17. The coach made a few changes this quarter with the girls taking a little while to settle. Caitlyn was quick off the line on yeas centre pass. Yea’s passing let them down this quarter which resulted in many turnovers. Yea’s defence remained strong this quarter. 12-23 Jordan W came back on scoring Yea’s first goal. Caitlyn back in C put in 100 per cent all quarter getting many deflects. The whole team played well, many putting into place what they have been working on in training. Great effort Tigers. Final Score 16-30 Royal Mail Award : Caitlyn Broderick. Tiger Bucks : Sophie Danieli . - Michelle Dolman


■ 1st Quarter. Yea started off strong and the defence work by Ruby (GD) and Cassy (GK) they made it difficult for Euroa to score. With great team work through the centre court by Jordyn (C) Melina (WA) and Holly (WD) and in the Yea goal ring with Abby (GS) and Maggie (GA) saw Yea in the lead by the end of the first qtr. Yea 8 to Euroa 6. 2nd Quarter. Yea started with the centre pass and worked the ball down to Abby to add another goal, Euroa kept up the fight to keep adding to their score, but Cassy and Ruby did not make it easy for them. Scoring was goal for goal in the 2nd quarter. Yea 14 to Euroa 13. 3rd Quarter. Yea's intercepting in the Euroa goal circle was in top form grabbing rebounds where possible, Cassy was on fire and was determined to turn over the ball for the centre girls to take it down to our goalers to add to our score. Another tight quarter. Yea 23 to Euroa 22. 4th Quarter. Yea started the last quarter with changes to the centre court with Jordyn (WA), Holly (C) and Melina (WD), Euroa had to worked hard, both teams intercepting the ball up and down the court until Euroa took the goal. Yea fought back and kept the score one goal ahead. Yea were able to extend their lead by another two goals with the determination of Ruby's and Cassy's defensive skills turning the ball over to Yea's advantage. A great game to watch. Well done girls. Final Score: Yea 31 def Euroa 27 Awards: Royal Mail - Abby Christie. Tiger Bucks - Cassy Wilsmore - Sarah Cunningham


■ 1st Quarter. Yea was up against unbeaten Euroa in Yea - a cold morning but at least the sun was shining. The girls started strong, applying great pressure on the Euroa side who have managed to score a few times. A great intercept by Lily and Olivia has Yea on the board for our first goal. Holly working well in defence and Grace moving the ball well around the court. Euroa lead by 6 goals. 2nd Quarter. Yea needed to step up the pressure. Better passing saw the ball move down the Yea goal area and Maddie moved up this week from Under 12s was on fire in GA position. Sarah and Emma were defending well, keeping Euroa to 3 goals. An awesome quarter from Yea - half-time score: Yea 10, Euroa 12 3rd Quarter. Both sides continue to put the pressure on each other. Olivia and Maddie continue their great form, beautiful passing and talking between each other. Euroa once again kept to three goals thanks to great work by all defenders. We had a close game and it would come


4th Quarter. With only one goal separating them both sides needed a strong quarter. Euroa were applying good pressure, a few turnovers from Yea saw Euroa shooting a few quick goals. Maddie once again stepped up shooting some great goals, unfortunately it was not enough and Euroa tok out another win. Congratulations on a superb effort by all of the team, so close to beating the top side and a real confidence booster with finals just around the corner. Remember to keep training hard, put in 100 per cent effort and stick together as a team. Well done. Final Score: Euroa 23 def Yea 18 Awards: Royal Mail Voucher - Maddie Granter.

■ Q1. The sunshine was out when our very young side took to the court. Ashlee was kept busy in GK and we saw some nice passes between Chloe in GA and Bridie Mc in WA. Finn was playing well in centre. Yea 0, Euroa 9 Q2. Jordyn in GD and Maddie in GA were a welcome inclusion to the second quarter. Milly had her running legs on playing well in WD and intercepted well. Yea 0, Euroa 12 Q3. Euroa were proving to be far too strong, however the defensive work from Bella in WD and Chloe in GD was helping to keep the score down. Tilly kept the ball moving in centre. Yea 0, Euroa 16 Q4. Yea showed some clean skills and great determination for such young ladies. Well done Euroa. Onwards and upwards Yea. Yea 0, Euroa 20 Awards. Royal Mail :Bella. Tiger Bucks: Tilley - Nicole Hahnenfeldt


■ A clear but chilly day in Yea saw the eager Tigers take on ladder leaders Euroa on Sunday. Both teams had a full complement of players, the Tigers relying on the Under 14s to boost its numbers, whilst Euroa had an even spread of bigger bodied players all over the ground. Euroa were off to a fast start and continued at speed to leave the Tigers languishing at quarter-time Yea 0.0 (0), Euroa 9.2 (55). The second quarter saw the Tigers show a bit more desperation and better teamwork.Goals to Charles and Wischer gave the Tiger-faithful something to cheer,and the Tiger backs were lifting in defence to put more pressure on the Euroa forwards.Half-time:Yea 2.3 (15), Euroa 12.3 (75). The third quarter was pretty much all Euroa again but the Tigers were still giving all they had,making Euroa earn their possessions.3/4 time: Yea 2.4 (16) to Euroa 17.4 (106). The final term was once again Euroa's although Yea created quite a few more opportunities than the previous three quarters,just not putting the score on the board,the boys battled against the odds all day,unable to claw back from a poor first quarter. The last quarter highlights were a goal to Beattie and the final siren. Final score: Yea 3.6 (24) to Euroa 22.5 (137). Best players: J. Harry, B. Wilsmore, F. Muller, N. Beattie, B. Charles, E. Aldous. Goals: Charles, Wischer, Beattie . . - Jack McMaster


■ Yea welcomed Euroa for the Round 11 match for the Tigers U10s. The last time these sides met it was a one-sided affair however the improvement the little Tigers have made over the past 10 weeks was hugely evident. Even with a few players away and Assistant Coach Rob Armstrong not available the kids

■ The AFL Yarra Ranges League Round 13 last Saturday saw the Rebels travel to Powelltown for two games of football and four games of netball, the oval in good condition despite rain during the week. RESERVES The Reserves, again with many changes to the team, including the return of Daniel Roper after an enforced break, challenged Powelltown for the important third position on the ladder. The game started off even with both sides contesting strongly but the home side settled the better and some undisciplined Alexandra play saw the Demons on top in the latter part of the first and early part of the second quarter. Alex improved their game in the middle stages and was still a chance at three quarter time as they had outscored the home side in the third quarter. Alex started the last positively but Powelltown again was able to close the game down and the bigger stronger home team was able to run out comfortable winners 13.10 (88) to 8.4 (52). Awards: Caltex $25 fuel card - Ryan Carter, Alex Sportspower $20 award - David Bourke, Hoova's @ Mt.Pleasant $20 meal - Daniel Roper, Corner Hotel $20 meal - Jedd Hamill, Corner Hotel 5 pots - Ben Podger-Carroll. SENIORS The Seniors made two changes to the team with Conor Heaslip and Daniel Rouget coming in to replace Will Goonan and Zach Heaslip, the Rebels trying to turn around a five match losing run at the Mill ground, having not won there since 2012. Alexandra began to the Mill end on a cold, still winter's afternoon and despite an early goal to Scott Hill, Alex was mostly on the defensive in the first quarter as Powelltown used the ball more constructively. Four unanswered home team goals set the game up for the home side although Alexandra in their best bit of ball movement from Jack Elkington deep in defence through Jake Steyger and Scott Heveren finished in a Brayden Norris goal before the quarter time siren sounded giving Powelltown an 18-point lead. The Demons kicked the first goal of the second quarter before Luke Heard goaled to keep the Rebels in touch but consecutive Powelltown goals again looked ominous but Alex was doing better in general play and Conor Heaslip ended on a string of hand-passes to goal. Further goals to Heard, Steyger and Brayden Norris answered Powelltown goals as each side added five majors for the term and Alex, although still trailing by 19 points at the main break, was still a chance in the second half. Following early behinds, Alex closed the gap early in the third quarter when Chris Mullins again doing the heavy work in the ruck forwarded to Heveren for a goal. Despite the efforts of Jacob Brereton and Jordan Purcell deep in defence the remainder of the quarter belonged to the home side as Alex fought hard to hold on. Powelltown was out-marking Alexandra in attacking positions although the defence did well to limit the Demons to three goals but the margin had extended to 29 points at the last change. Despite the efforts of Ben Cooper who as usual tried hard all game and Ryley Norris the home side kicked four goals to two (both to Heveren) in the last quarter to win comfortably,
