focused on family violence, which develops safety plans to assist repeat victims and strategies to deter recidivist offending in family violence incidents,” he added. Insp Paterson said alcohol consumption impacts on assaults offences and in response police work in partnership with licensed venues to reinforce safe and responsible service of alcohol. The quarterly crime statistics show reductions in property damage (3.1 per cent), residential burglary (16.2 per cent), burglary-other (25.7 per cent) and crime against property (11.5 per cent). Other notable drops can be seen in theft from motor vehicle (20.7 per cent)

from 1082 in 2012 compared to 858 last year, and theft of motor vehicle which dramatically dropped by 40.4 per cent from 386 compared to 230 in 2013. “This has been achieved through a focused approach by the uniform and investigation units,” Insp Paterson said. “The Crime Impact Team has continued to use the recidivist offender strategy and targeted operations to focus on specific crimes and repeat offenders to achieve these results.” Insp Paterson said road policing continues to be a priority within the municipality with three fatal collisions this quarter where speed, fatigue and distraction were causal factors.

OVERALL crime has decreased by 4.9 per cent in Hobsons Bay but key areas including assaults are on the rise, the latest crime statistics have revealed. According to the figures, 6524 crimes were recorded in Hobsons Bay between 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013 down from 6880 from 1 January 2012 to December 2012. However, crime against the person jumped 10.3 per cent from 751 in the last quarter to 828 this quarter. Assaults jumped 12 per cent from 594 in 2012 to 665 last year, and assaults excluding family violence rose 4.6 per cent to 386 in 2012

compared to 369 last year. Drug offences also jumped 46.2 per cent from 249 offences compared to 364 in this quarter. Hobsons Bay Police Inspector Richard Paterson said police continue to be challenged by assaults involving nonfamily violence and family violence incidents. “Family violence incidents continue to contribute to an increase in assaultrelated crime,” he said. Insp Paterson said a Summer Policing Team was established in response to the influx of visitors over summer to focus on crime and public order issues. “Hobsons Bay has a dedicated team

WHEN Jason Robertson was diagnosed with Moyamoya disease after suffering a series of strokes, he didn’t know what to think because he didn’t know what it was. In 2008, the Altona North resident was 38 and living in Brisbane when he had his first stroke, also known as transient ischemic attacks (TIA). From 2008 to November 2013, Jason suffered six known strokes that continued intermittently before he was diagnosed with moyamoya. Moyamoya disease is a rare, progressive disease caused by blocked arteries at the base of the brain. After his first stroke, Jason under-

Jason Robertson. 115502 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI went magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs), scans, cerebral angiograms and was diagnosed as having had a

TIA. He was prescribed several medications to control blood pressure and cholesterol. Jason got the same diagnosis after his second stroke. Both times, he briefly lost consciousness and suffered minimal but short term speech difficulties. It wasn’t until November 2013 when he underwent an angiogram at Footscray Hospital that he was diagnosed with moyamoya. “Initially I said ‘what’s moyamoya’ because I’d never heard of it and he (the doctor) explained it to me. He said one in a million people get it but being a male it’s more like one in 3 million people,” he said.

COMMUNITY group Save Williamstown and Hobsons Bay City Council has vowed to fight a decision made by Heritage Victoria to deny the Oriental Hotel in Williamstown heritage status. The Oriental Hotel has failed to win support for state heritage listing following a decision by Heritage Victoria recently. Heritage Victoria has announced it will recommend to the Heritage Council that the Oriental Hotel not be included on the Victorian Heritage Register. Godfrey Moase from Save Williamstown said they were upset Heritage Victoria has not yet recognised the obvious value that the former Oriental Hotel has for all of Victoria. “This is a unique building, a common treasure that has been run into the ground by the developer, and their reward is a bucket of money,” he said. Mr Moase said it was important to remember this is not the final decision and now was the time for the community to have its voice heard.

Like the permanent moyamoya logo tattooed on Jason’s inner arm, the disease is incurable. “He told me it was incurable, so I was devastated really.” Jason has been unable to work, has to have a full time career and cannot drive due to the high risk of having a stroke or seizure. Jason said he wanted to create awareness about the rare and relatively unknown disease. “It’s also prevalent in children and children can get it from one year old.” To find out more visit the moyamoya Australia Facebook page.

Tag busters on a high

Focus on fatal five By NICOLE VALICEK POLICE in Hobsons Bay will target the five contributing factors to road trauma in a state-wide operation over the Labour Day Long Weekend. Operation Arid will run over the Labour Day Long Weekend, from 15 to 17 March, with a focus around issues relevant to local areas. Hobsons Bay road policing adviser Senior Sergeant Damien Mad-

den said the aim of the operation was to increase driver awareness and journey planning while reducing road trauma. “Intelligence assessments have identified the top 10 high trauma locations which will receive extra focus by state and local policing resources,” he said. “Thankfully Hobsons Bay and the surrounding local government areas are not within these high trauma locations.”

“All local highway patrol resources from Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong and Wyndham will be deployed across the division targeting the five contributing factors to road trauma being speed, impairment, distraction, fatigue and seatbelts.” Snr Sgt Madden said the operation aims to provide a sustained and highly visible police presence on Victorian roads. “(It also aims to) apply a balance of enforcement and deterrence to

those who engage in irresponsible or dangerous road-user behaviour.” He said a new card recently produced debunked five common myths on speeding in an effort to get motorists to slow down. One myth on the card reads: “going a little over the speed limit is not a risk”, while the fact states “if all drivers dropped 1km/h off their average speed we could see a five per cent reduction in road trauma or 15 lives saved each year.”

HOBSONS Bay City Council has endorsed an amendment to its 2010 Graffiti Management Policy. The council will allocate $75,000 in the 2014/15 budget to remove graffiti from private premises in shopping centres where the graffiti is at a height of three metres or above. Assistance in these cases would benefit the wider community in lifting the appearance of high profile areas such as shopping centres. As part of an agreement with Hobsons Bay City Council, the Department of Justice currently visits hot spots on a weekly basis including Harrington Square, Railway Avenue in Laverton, and Wood/Lohse Street, Laverton. The Department of Justice however will not remove graffiti over the height of three metres.

ASH PHY AND S LARGE TRO TO AWARDED Y T OF HE DA CHAMPION Minister for Health David Davis cut the birthday cake at the Williamstown Hospital last Thursday Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI before officially opening the next operating theatre. 115402 Region MP Andrew Elsbury said the Williamstown Hospital had played a central role in the Williamstown community and the settlement of Victoria.

The Williamstown Hospital opened on 27 July 1894 with just six beds and was the first free public hospital in Victoria. Mr Elsbury said the hospital

opened in response to increasing accidents from the busy port, railway workshops and the industrial areas of Newport, Spotswood and Footscray.

A NEW operating theatre and birthday cake were the big ticket items during Health Minister David Davis’s visit to the Williamstown Hospital last week. The minister celebrated the historic 120th anniversary of the Williamstown Hospital before touring and officially opening its new operating theatre last Thursday. Mr Davis said the celebration was a historic milestone in the rich history of the hospital, now operated by Western Health, and the Williamstown community. “To meet growing demand for elective surgery, the Victorian Government secured $3 million from the Commonwealth’s National Partnership Agreement on Improving Public Hospital Services to build a fourth operating theatre in Williamstown Hospital,” he said. The new operating theatre is a state-of-the-art ‘i- theatre’ which features the latest cutting edge webbased technology. “This ‘i-theatre’ will support and enhance staff education at Western Health by allowing operations to be recorded and shared in real-time with students,” Mr Davies said. “The technology also expands opportunities for consultation with specialists in other hospitals, and allows procedures to be recorded and referenced at a later date.” The $3 million project includes a refurbishment to the operating theatre admission area, a refurbishment to the central sterile services department and the construction of a fourth operating theatre. Western Metropolitan Region MP Bernie Finn said Williamstown Hospital had been identified as an elective surgery hub. Mr Finn said this meant less acute patients requiring routine elective surgery could come to Williamstown Hospital, rather than going to Sunshine or Footscray. Fellow Western Metropolitan

Back to school for children’s minister By NICOLE VALICEK MINISTER for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell returned to her roots last week to officially open the $9.6 million revamped Paisley Campus of Bayside P-12 College. Ms Lovell, who opened the new facilities on behalf of Education Minister Martin Dixon said that as a former foundation student of the school, it gave her great pleasure to celebrate the oppor-

tunities presented to senior students by the new facilities. “Students at Bayside P-12 College can now learn and thrive in three truly modern campuses,” Ms Lovell said. Ms Lovell was joined by local parliamentarians Bernie Finn and Andrew Elsbury and Hobsons Bay City Council mayor Sandra Wilson to open the new campus last Wednesday. The Paisley Campus rebuild provides the college’s

senior students with new specialist facilities including a library; science laboratories, mathematics, English and humanities hubs; a visual arts and performing arts wing; food centre; Year 12 study area; student cafe; and renovated administrative facilities. The multi-million dollar State Government investment came about after a major education provision review a decade ago.

Campus principal Milan Matejin said the opening of the campus redevelopment was a vital component in building a dynamic learning environment for students from the western side of Melbourne. “Our new facility will provide students with state-ofthe-art facilities to encourage and support them in pursuing excellence in their learning and connectedness to the wider community.”

INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day will be celebrated this weekend with the theme of ‘Inspiring Change’. In sync with this year’s theme South Western Melbourne Medicare Local (SWMML) want to ‘inspire change’ in the health of women in Wyndham and Hobsons Bay. SWMML is urging women to make a positive change to their health and inspire those around them to do so as well by encouraging women of all ages to get screened for cancers. BreastScreen Victoria statistics revealed that from 2010 to 2012 only 52 per cent of eligible women in the Hobsons Bay and Wyndham areas participated in breast screening programs. A result which was below the state-wide average of 65 per cent for the same period. From 2010 to 2011, 58 per cent of eligible women in Hobsons Bay and 49.3 per cent of eligible women in Wyndham were screened for cervical cancer, again both below the state average of 59.2 per cent.

Ramona wants to empower, inspire and motivate women through her networking events. Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI 115400

On the heels of business By NICOLE VALICEK A NEW women’s networking group with lots of sass has landed in Williamstown- in heels of course. Business in Heels in Melbourne’s West was founded by Point Cook resident Ramona Lever in November 2013. Ms Lever, who is a personal branding coach and photographer, discovered Business in Heels after she started her own business and realised the importance of networking. “I am passionate about empowering, inspiring and educating women. I believe that when women network together, they

can create magic by exchanging ideas and supporting each other,” she said. Business in Heels is the fastest growing network of sassy professional ladies worldwide. “I was excited to find I could I provide the west with a place for career women to connect.” Ms Lever said the event was social first and business second. “It’s really about the connection, connecting with the woman that may use your services.” She said the event was a chance to meet other interesting women and if you click, you feel compelled to find a way to work together or help each other.

“The reason it works so well – it’s in the evening, getting dressed up coming along having a champagne and socialising. You click with women and business cards go with it.” The networking event that puts a big emphasis on the giggle factor also hosts a number of “invaluable” guest speakers with each participant taking away a bag of goodies. The second Melbourne event will be held at Pelican Landing in Williamstown on 8 April from 7pm-9pm. Tickets $37. For ticket information, contact Ramona on 0425 620 456 or email melbournewest@businessinheels.com

Giving all players a fair go By NICOLE VALICEK A SOCCER club that provides an opportunity for every kid to get involved in a world sport thinks of itself as all embracing - with good reason. The Barnstone Worth United Junior Football Club (BUJFC) started in 2009 with the simple aim to provide children with an affordable opportunity to engage in a team sport and develop their interest for the ‘World Game’, Club President Dave Pettet said. Mr Pettet said as a community-minded club, all of the officials and coaches work purely on a volunteer basis and the club is “truly open to all, regardless of ability”.

“We are very proud of the role we are playing in providing an affordable opportunity for all children, regardless of race, gender or ability to play soccer within the Hobsons Bay Municipality,” he said. “Our vision is to become the leading community based sports club in our region promoting fun, inclusion, equitability and fair play within a friendly and healthy competitive environment.” The club trains at JT Gray Reserve in Williamstown and started with three teams and 59 members in 2009 and has grown to a club that will field 28 teams, including six girls’ teams, consisting of over 400 members in 2014.

This makes BUJFC the largest stand-alone junior soccer club in Hobsons Bay. Mr Pettet said the club’s focus was to keep fees low, provide a good coaching and community environment for kids with a focus on the spirit of fun rather than winning medals. “The club is very much open to all kids who have never played team sport, open to accommodate them - that’s the structure of the club. “We are an embracing club that accepts all children in the area if we can.” The club launched its preseason training on Sunday. Registrations are still open. For more information visit www. bujvc.com.

What’s not to love about mango season? Scoring that sweet golden flesh into little pop-out squares and feeling the juice dribble down my chin almost makes me feel like I’m holidaying on a tropical island in Far North Queensland. One of our favourite varieties - the Honey Gold mango - is grown by Queensland-based Pinata Farms in nearly every mainland state, including Victoria, and is now being imported to Russia. Fittingly, it was recently pictured about as far away from its tropical homeland as it could get … in the snowy surrounds of Sochi, giving our Aussie Winter Olympians a little taste of home. So in keeping with the mango theme (and given our special guest Ivo is a barbecue specialist), this week’s recipe is a lovely, fresh salsa from Taste.com.au that’s the perfect partner for grilled meats.

MANGO AND AVOCADO SALSA 1 just-ripe mango, cheeks removed, peeled and finely chopped 1 avocado, halved, stone removed, peeled and finely chopped Half a red onion, finely chopped 1 long fresh red chilli, deseeded and chopped 2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice. Combine ingredients and serve. Thanks again for all your wonderful emails.

Cancer screening saves valuable lives IN the lead-up to International Women’s Day on 8 March, South Western Melbourne Medicare Local (SWMML) is encouraging women of all ages to get screened for cancers and help prevent the preventable. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is ‘Inspiring Change’ and with some of the lowest screening rates in Victoria lying within SWMMLs catchment, the organisation is urging women to make a positive change to their health and inspire those around them to do so as well. Statistics from BreastScreen Victoria show that from 2010 to 2012, at total of 52 per cent of eligible women in the Hob-

The pap screening program significantly reduces the incidence of cervical cancer. “Services are readily available through general practice or women’s health nurses in the community health centres, and I would encourage all women to attend,” says Dr Silva. Dr Silva raises concerns over a large number of women in the region who are missing out on intimate health checks once they have completed their child bearing, and urges women of all backgrounds to access the important health care services on offer in the community.

Soma Nair has 15 years’ experience in traditional therapies.

Fight disease with nature Soma’s interest in naturopathy and ayurveda was aroused at a very young age. “I used to see my father treat friends and family with simple home remedies. “He would ask us to collect leaves of different plants, put them in packets and label their usage. “I also helped him to make pills and powders and watched him make decoctions boiling different herbs. “I was also happy as these remedies had no side effect and most of the ingredients were part of the food and were easily available in the kitchen cupboard,� she says. Soma gained a diploma in naturopathy and yoga in India and did training in panchkarma treatments from Kerala in India, which is the home of ayurveda. “Everyone wants healthy body and healthy mind. “Disturbances in health happen due to various reasons. “It can be lifestyle, food habits and stress that can come

By DR KRISTI GREEN COPING with the loss of a dog or cat is the most difficult aspect of owning a pet and one of the hardest parts about being a vet and vet nurse. This week our clinic has said a sad goodbye to several patients who we have known for more than 14 years each. Euthanasia is usually decided based on an animal’s deteriorating quality of life or when medical treatment options have been exhausted. Our owners and their animals are part of our family, too, and when the time comes for a pet to be put to sleep we ensure animals pass in a peaceful and painless manner. Pets truly do provide us with unconditional

love and are a faithful long-term companion. For this reason, the loss of a pet is as painful as the death of any family member. Many people choose to have their pet cremated so their ashes can be kept close by or scattered somewhere special. Surround yourself with friends and family and share your memories about your pet. Pet grief counsellors can provide additional support. Allow plenty of time for both yourself and the other pets at home to mourn and possibly consider taking on a new puppy or kitten when you feel you are ready. Always remember that your life is amazingly richer because of the time that you shared with your pet.

Visit of veterinary discovery will be able to engage with pet demonstrations, public lectures, interactive displays and selfguided tours. Hear about what it’s really like consulting, teaching, healing, discovering and working at the forefront of veterinary science. Learn how veterinarians and students solve problems, treat animals, perform procedures, make diagnoses and use stateof-the-art equipment with a variety of interactive displays which will take place throughout the veterinary hospital and at the cattle yards. See the amazing world of

animal disease from the malformed to the malignant. Displays include fresh specimens, museum pots and skeletons. Speak to veterinarians and staff about the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. Explore other rewarding animal related careers in agriculture, veterinary nursing, equine studies and more at the education hub. Take a self-guided tour by following the paw prints for a voyage of discovery through our world-class veterinary hospital. For further information visit www.vet.unimelb.edu.au.

BOOMER Bloodhound Cross 1 yr 5 months Male Tan and Black

Hi there, my name is Boomer and I’m patiently waiting to find my pawfect match at RSPCA Burwood East. I’m ready to find my permanent home with my new loving family. I’m a very unique dog and due to my breed have a few requirements in my new home in order for me to fit in, so it’s important that you research my breed before coming in to adopt. I need to go to an adult home because I’ve proven to be too boisterous for children. I’m best suited to acreage instead of the suburbs because it will allow me to be my loudest without bothering your neighbours. Suitable fencing is important around the household so that I am properly secured in the yard. Another canine companion is very important because I have energy to burn. I love to follow my nose so lots of enrichment games that involve sniffing would be lots of fun and keep me entertained and content. Find out more via: www.rspcavic.org/adoption and type BOOMER in ‘Keywords‘ box.

MAGGIE Domestic Medium Hair 8 Year Female Torbie

Hi there, my name is Maggie. I’ve got a lot of love to give! I like to explore and investigate. I can’t maintain this sensational coat all by myself, so my purrfect match will need to help me to keep looking this fabulous with daily grooming! I would like to live in a mature family, as kids can be a bit overwhelming for me. I need to be the only cat in my new home and I’ll make a fantastic companion cat for someone looking for lots of cuddles! Find out more via: www.rspcavic.org/ adoption and type MAGGIE in ‘Keywords‘ box.

Gulls fight for win By LIAM TWOMEY WILLIAMSTOWN continued its impressive run of form in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association with a 45-run victory against Sunshine on Saturday. The contest resumed with Williamstown needing eight wickets to claim the win after batting first on day one. The Seagulls were 5/232 when Craig Sheedy declared the innings over in search of wickets. He was rewarded with gun opening bowler Matthew Inness taking two scalps and leaving Sunshine 2/15 at stumps. Despite being in the box seat after day one, Williamstown was forced to fight against a gutsy Sunshine outfit. The loss of two early wickets put the pressure on the Crows but they were able to hang in throughout the afternoon. Eventually the burden of wickets in hand and a climbing required run rate became too great as Williamstown claimed the final wicket in the 88th over. Inness continued his outstanding match, taking another four wickets on day two to finish with the figures of 6/39 from 25 overs. He was well supported by Mitchell Ferrie who also chipped in with two scalps of his own. The remaining wickets were taken by Nathan Bratby and Samuel Davis. “It was fantastic to get the win,” Seagulls captain Craig Sheedy said.

FOOTSCRAY Edgewater will need to bring its best with the ball this week after a tough first day in its Premier Cricket clash with St Kilda. In the final round of the season, the top two teams squared off at Mervyn Hughes Oval with the Bulldogs winning the toss and electing to bat first. Despite the early loss of Anthony Barton, the decision looked to be a good one as Footscray moved to 1/47 with in-form duo Travis Dean and captain Dean Russ at the crease. But it was the loss of wickets in groups which cost the Bulldogs throughout the afternoon. Footscray lost Dean and Dylan Kight in the space of seven runs and then later in the innings, lost 4/6. Coming up against arguably the best team in the competition, it was always going to be hard to post a strong score from there and the Bulldogs struggled. Thanks to a handy 27 from number nine batsman Hamish Winter-Irving, Footscray reached 153 before being bowled out in the 61st over. Russ was the top scorer for the innings with 53 while Shanuka Dissanayaka was the next best with 31. “We were disappointed to make

shorts Russ suits up for Bushrangers FOOTSCRAY Edgewater opener Dean Russ is poised to become the 840th player to represent the Commonwealth Bank Bushrangers in first-class cricket after he was selected in the 12-man squad to face Tasmania in a Bupa Sheffield Shield match at the MCG this week. Russ, who turned 28 on Thursday, has struck 641 runs, at an average of 45.8, in Bartercard Premier Cricket this season while also impressing in the Toyota Futures League, where he is the tournament’s leading run-scorer with 350 runs. Russ is joined in the squad by Peter Handscomb, who amassed 212 in his previous match for St Kilda on February 15. They replace Cameron White and Glenn Maxwell in the side who are both in South Africa with the Australian Twenty20 side. The match will see a return of day/night Sheffield Shield cricket after it was first trialled in the late 1990s. “It is all a little bit surreal at the moment,” Russ said. “It is fantastic. I am looking forward to getting stuck into it all on Monday.”

Brenton Hodges makes an attempt at a stumping for Williamstown on the weekend. 115795 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI “Ideally we needed an outright to give ourselves any chance of making the finals and we knew we weren���t going to do that half-way through the day. “It was going to be a battle to knock them over and Matthew Inness bowled beautifully and got us

over the line. “On a wicket that had nothing in it for the bowlers, he just stepped up and won the game for us.” The weekend’s result leaves the Seagulls in 10th spot on the VSDCA East/West ladder with four wins for

the season. Sunshine now sits in 13th after winning two games. In what will be the final round of the season this week, Williamstown will take on Noble Park while Sunshine will meet Oakleigh.

the score we did,” Russ said. “We thought we should have been able to push 200 plus but we didn’t really string too many partnerships together. “They bowled exceptionally well and it was a typical St Kilda performance really. They are a very disciplined side.” With 26 overs left in the day’s play, Footscray needed quick wickets and Jake Haberfield delivered. The gun quick removed Peter Handscomb (who was coming off back-to-back Premier Cricket hundreds) without scoring and Rob Quiney for nine to have St Kilda at 2/13. Winter-Irving then got in on the act, taking the wicket of Matthew Chasemore to make it 3/30. From there, St Kilda managed to settle its innings and will resume this week at 3/57. Thomas Moffat and Graeme Rummans are the not out batsmen on 37 and 10 respectively. “Jake bowled very well,” Russ said. “To get those two wickets and then to follow up with Chasemore was very good for us. If we can get a couple of wickets early in the session then we are a massive chance.”

WEST Newport has survived the cut and will play in the Williamstown and District Cricket Association’s A Turf finals series after easily accounting for Gellibrand on Saturday. Finishing just one point ahead of Melton Centrals to sneak into the top four, West Newport only needed 52 overs to ensure first innings points - making 226 in response to Gellibrand’s 141 from day one. This weekend West Newport is due to play Williamstown Colts, who finished on top of the ladder with nine wins and 60 points. Bellbridge will host Grand United in the other semi-final to be played this Saturday and Sunday. Meanwhile in the WDCA’s A Grade Matting competition, Point Cook’s superior percentage got it across the line over Williamstown Imperials for the final spot in the top four. Both clubs ended the season on 39 points, with Melton Centrals, WLSC Marshalls and Wyndham Vale also making the cut ahead of semi-final weekend. SPOTSWOOD has missed out on the Victorian Turf Cricket Association’s North Division finals series after failing to get past Laverton on the final day of the home-and-away season on Saturday. On day one of the clash at Laverton Park, the host posted a formidable 250 runs before Spotswood survived three overs out in the middle to go into day two at 0/1. On Saturday the Woodsmen faced another 44 overs but could never really get going with the bat, falling well short of their target on their way to just 134. Spotswood finished fifth on the table, almost 10 points shy of fourth-placed and finals-bound Doutta Stars. Meanwhile in the VTCA’s North A1 Division, Seddon upset Taylors Lakes at home to finish fourth on the table, and will play the Altona Roosters in this weekend’s semi-final. Taylors Lakes and Sunshine Druids will also play for a spot in the grand final.

A BUMPER opening weekend of blockbuster fixtures will kick-start Football Federation Victoria’s brand new National Premier Leagues competition - which is set to begin Thursday week. Melbourne Knights, Green Gully and Werribee City will be the West’s three NPL representatives, while Sunshine George Cross and St Albans will feature in the NPL1 competition. The Knights will start their NPL campaign next Friday night at home to Northcote City - before spending the entire month of April at Knights Stadium - including a round three battle with Werribee City. The following day Green Gully and the Bees will face each other at the Cavaliers’ Green Gully Reserve for their round one clash. Also in action on the first Saturday of the new season are Sunshine George Cross and St Albans in NPL1. The Georgies will host Brunswick City at Chaplin Reserve, while the Saints will hit the road to take on Springvale White Eagles. The two Brimbank neighbours will meet at Chaplin Reserve in round five.

Skill in Dogs’ progress By LIAM TWOMEY FROM the moment he walked into the Footscray Edgewater Cricket Club, Steve Chapman knew he had some talent on his hands. Having previously coached Dandenong to a premiership, Chapman signed with the Bulldogs before the 2013/14 season and wasted no time taking his winning ways across Melbourne to Farnsworth Avenue. Initially, Footscray was the surprise packet of the competition after a hot start to the season. But this was no flash in the pan, and going into the final round, a win will see the club finish the home-and-away competition on top of the ladder. “When I was talking about the job initially, I couldn’t put my finger on why Footscray hadn’t been involved in finals,” Chapman said. “I felt that if we were anywhere near what I believed the side could be then we would make the finals. I never thought we could be as high as second or indeed, if we finish the last round with a win, that we could finish on top.” With finals just one week away and despite Footscray’s place in the post-season looking likely since the opening rounds of the season, the Bulldogs haven’t been getting ahead of themselves. Apart from a couple of passing comments, a finals campaign hasn’t been spoken about in great detail among the players and coaching staff. “I haven’t let the guys and I haven’t wanted them to (speak about finals),” Chapman said. “I wanted them to talk about what was coming up on Saturday and talk about literally the first session. “I didn’t want them to get distracted or get ahead of themselves. I have got a group of lads here that haven’t had a lot of finals experience or success. I think it is important to keep their feet on the ground and ask them to consider what is coming up rather than what potentially could hap-

pen in x amount of weeks’ time.” Footscray will find out its round one finals opponent at the conclusion of its match with St Kilda. Regardless of which team the Bulldogs take on, one player going into the match in hot form is Travis Dean. The number three batsman hit his first Premier Cricket first grade century against Dandenong

last month and then followed it up with a brilliant 95 when taking on Camberwell. Chapman is confident that more runs will follow for the rising star. “I think he (Dean) has come of age,” Chapman said. “There are a lot of people around the traps that reckon this kid will play for Victoria within a couple of years. He was the best under-19 cricketer

going around in the country a couple of years ago. He has always had it in him. I think it was just a case of him working it out for himself. “The 95 runs that he got were every bit as classy as the hundred he got against Dandenong. It was a completely different set of circumstances from the Dandenong game where his ability to hit the gaps and be fluent was every bit as skilful as his ability to leave in the game at Camberwell.”

Winning streak By LIAM TWOMEY CITY West continued its outstanding start to the Victorian Netball League season with a victory against Monash University Storm on Wednesday night. The Falcons were in front from the get go and maintained a healthy lead over the Storm throughout the next three quarters. But it was in the final term when City West produced some of its best netball. Marg Lind’s side scored 17 goals and restricted Monash to just six to secure the 17-goal win. The result capped off a busy seven days for the Falcons after they also enjoyed wins against Fed Uni Ballarat Pride (61-26) and DC North East Blaze (59-35). Lind was rapt with how her side was able to handle its busy schedule. “We have been performing pretty well and they were certainly solid in all three games which is pleasing,” she said. “I felt like they would be fatigued with three games in under seven days, so we actually didn’t train at all in the seven-day period. “A lot of the girls also had state training too so we were pretty mindful of that. Essentially, those who are in the state team, they actually had another game as well with the state team. “We said to them that if their performance against Blaze on Saturday night was solid, which meant we had three wins under our belt, we wouldn’t train them on Sunday, which we didn’t do, and I think that paid off.” The trio of victories maintains City West’s unbeaten start to the VNL season with the Falcons

When round five of the season gets underway this week, the Falcons will take on third-placed Geelong. The game will have an interesting dynamic, with Geelong now being coached by former Falcon Gerard Murphy. “I think he (Murphy) has done some good work with them and we certainly won’t be underestimating them,” Lind said. “Even less so because he has come from our stable and he knows how we run. That is going to be a little bit of an advantage to him, but I guess the same applies to us. We know his coaching methods. I’m hoping to get another win, so that we go into the break with a clean slate.”

Sport In the

Doghouse KEVIN HILLIER

Memo councils: make grounds available LOCAL footy is back with VFL practice matches, the WRFL interleague squad in full training for the metropolitan championships and my mobile ringing a heck of a lot more. Some clubs are telling me they are having issues with ground availability, even those that are not shared with cricket. I don’t understand why some councils have this negative attitude. The grounds are built to be used, not looked at. We are trying to promote participation in sport. Why make it so difficult? The other point of contention is the time it takes to get some very small jobs, like covering a cricket wicket, done. The frustration this causes is most unnecessary and does not bode well for the rest of the year. West Footscray Football Club is holding its season launch this Thursday at the Pound Cafe at Whitten Oval from 7pm. Western Bulldogs Director Barry Hall and WRFL guru Steve Thom will be speaking along with Trevor Davies the senior coach. Good luck to the Roosters for 2014. Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT

Winning wolves after the spoils By ADEM SARICAOGLU WILLIAMSTOWN coach Dean Marnell is well-aware his Wolves are not quite over the line just yet in Division Two Summer League Baseball. The competition frontrunners qualified for this week’s grand final series after easily getting past Moorabbin in two games on Wednesday and Saturday. The Wolves will now face Springvale in the Division Two decider over the coming week, but Marnell is wary of his side’s grand final foe and their key weapon with

both bat and ball, Freddy Flores. “We played Springvale in round one and (Flores) is really good,” Marnell said. “He played national league (for the Australian Baseball League’s Melbourne Aces) this year and he can pitch, but he can hit the ball as well. “We saw him in round one and he seemed to do well against us, so we’ll have our work cut out against Springvale.” The Wolves are firing on all cylinders and, based on the numbers at least, are well-deserving of the fa-

vourites tag going into the decider. With the bat, Marnell is happy with how Williamstown is going, but he does believe the Wolves’ work in the field can be improved ahead of the grand final series opener. “I reckon offensively we’re going really well at the moment, we’re swinging the bats really well, we’re having really good plate appearances and everyone in the line-up one to nine has been a really tough out,” Marnell said. “I think we’re doing all the fundamentals as well, putting the bunts down and running the bases well, so that’s pleasing.

“Defensively, we’ve had a couple of lapses here and there. In the 16 innings we played in the semi-finals, we probably had two bad innings and 14 really good innings. “So we could probably get better there.” Williamstown’s bullpen also looks to be in good working order, with Jason Lester, David Asp and Josh Lee all fit and ready to go. “Our three gun pitchers are really starting to come along, and the guys we’ve got relieving them got some work in on Wednesday night too, so that was quite pleasing,” Marnell said.

Newport Rams manage the pass mark By ADEM SARICAOGLU THE pass mark for Newport was probably to stay ahead of .500 in its first year back as a Division One baseball team. The Rams ended up doing slightly better than that, finishing up their 2013/14 campaign last week third in Conference Two with 13 wins and a draw coming from their 25 outings. While Newport was never really in contention to trouble finalsbound Geelong and Essendon in the win-percentage column, the Rams did manage to knock Geelong over twice in the final month of the regular season. Coach Grant Weir was obviously pleased with his side’s competitiveness in the top flight, but did admit a few more wins would have been nice. “If you measure it up overall, you’d probably think we were above par from how I thought we would

Import Travis Bass in action against Sunshine back in January. 113415 Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT go,” Weir said. “So I’ll probably give us an above-average pass. I am disappointed we didn’t win more games, but you then have a look at the

games we did win and to finish above .500 was a great effort.” Having continuity through the week-to-week line-up proved difficult for Newport this summer, as the

club was forced into making changes for just about every game. What did remain consistent all summer, however, was the all-round brilliance of import in-fielder Travis Bass. With 28 hits and 17 RBIs, Bass was the clear standout for Newport alongside pitchers Jeremy Young and Griffin Weir. “He’ll go really well in the league MVP trophy - and he’ll probably win our MVP award easily,” Weir said of Bass. “Defensively, when he played in the in-field he was brilliant, he was our second leading hitter and he was our leading pitcher, so overall he’s made a really positive impact and I think he’s probably the best import that Newport have had in a long time.” After meeting with the club’s board last week, Weir has decided to remain on deck ahead of the 2014/15 season.

INTERESTING times in local cricket, Werribee lost its first First XI game for the year, despite some batting heroics from Tim O’Brien who made an unbeaten 69 in the run chase. They play second placed Bayswater this weekend in a one dayer at Avalon Airport Oval. Interesting letter I saw from Daniel Gaylor, the President of Grand United Cricket Club, to the Williamstown District Cricket Association calling for massive changes to keep the competition alive. West Newport and Willy Imps are leaving the competition next year and all clubs are finding it hard to field teams. Grand United a powerhouse club has lost three teams in two seasons. Daniel has a very strong point, I hope he gets a hearing. Adam Contessa bobbed up with a six wicket performance and two knocks over 30, to help the Yarraville Club CC make the finals in the VTCA. They will play Greenvale in the semi final this weekend at Greenvale. WESTERN Athletics is hosting an Athletics Victoria shield meet for the first time ever in Wyndham at the Vic Uni Aths track in Hoppers Lane this Saturday from 1.30pm. Track events include the 100 metre, 1500 metre, 400 metres, hurdle and steeplechase. The newly installed pole vault will highlight the field events including javelin, discuss and long jump. Entry is free and you can see many leading western suburbs athletes including Morgan Mitchell who is preparing for this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Other notables include Alan Cook (1500 World Champion for his age) and Anne Cross (2000 Olympian). More than 25 of the juniors competing Saturday will be off to Sydney next week for the National Championships.

MIXED fortunes for the VFL sides with Werribee having a narrow win over Box Hill Hawks and Williamstown losing by a few goals to Essendon. The results mean little and both clubs will be happy to have the first run under their belt. The rivals meet this Saturday at Aegis Park with the Development squad at 10am followed by the seniors at 1pm. GMHBA Geelong Regional Manager Deryn Mobbs joined the Board of the Werribee football club at last week’s AGM which also saw John Nicol returned as President. Werribee has also confirmed that its round 8 game against Richmond will be played at the home of the Torquay Tigers, Spring Creek Reserve on Saturday May 24th.

NOW the family can see everything from the comfort of the all new Nissan X-Trail in 2WD, 4WD petrol plus the 4WD diesel models which are packed with innovative features. Muscular, modern and packed with technology, the new Nissan X-Trail made its world debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Building on Nissan’s respected 4x4 heritage but adding world-leading crossover knowhow, the new X-Trail re-defines the compact SUV segment. The US version, called the Nissan Rogue, has made its world debut. As a high-volume global growth product built on the new jointly-developed Nissan/ Renault Common Module Family platform architecture, it is projected to be available in 190 countries. At the same time as enhancing its predecessor’s goanywhere credibility, the new X-Trail takes inspiration from Nissan’s market-leading crossovers - Qashqai, Juke and Murano - to create the ultimate, all weather, highly capable, mod-

ern family vehicle. The design brief behind the new X-Trail was to blend the sleek and stylish lines of a modern crossover with the robust appeal of a typical SUV. In place of the rugged, squared off lines of the previous generation, the new X-Trail has a premium and dynamic appearance. Sculptured muscular lines create a distinctive silhouette framed by elegant curves and high wheel arches and feature a number of Nissan signature cues such as the ‘boomerang’ rear lights, structured headlights with LED daytime running lamps and the characteristic D-pillar shape. LED headlights - for both high and low beams - are standard on high grade models while 19-inch alloy wheels also give the new X-Trail an imposing look. Practical touches include rear side doors that open to almost 80 degrees - far wider than normal - to allow not just easy access but also to ease the loading and unloading of a child’s safety seat. Middle row

seat comfort has been improved thanks to extra knee room generated by the longer wheelbase and the new front seats having more heavily sculpted seat backs. The middle row seats recline and slide while, where fitted, the third row folds forward to increase luggage space. Helpful touches include, for example, a large between-theseats console box. The box itself is large enough to take an iPad or 10inch tablet. Visit Werribee Nissan at 1426 Heaths Rd, Hoppers Crossing. It is open from Monday to Saturday, 8.30am-6pm, and Sunday, 10am-5pm. Phone 9974 5800 to register interest in this vehicle. Alternatively, visit Western Nissan on the corner of Western Hwy and Christies Rd, Caroline Springs. It is open from Monday to Saturday, 8am-6pm and Sunday, 10am-5pm, or call 8361 8255 for more information.
