Students star struck By Jessica Anstice Pakenham Springs Primary School had a visit from the brand new NBL team, South East Melbourne Phoenix. Year 5 students enjoyed basketball clinics throughout the day, with Year 6 students playing a game against the Phoenix players at lunch time, supported by the entire school community. Students had the chance to chat with the players and get their brand new basketball singlets signed.

Harlie Chilcott was happy to show the visiting NBL players a thing or two. 197689

Passenger crush tra 500,000 people across the train network. Member for Bass electorate Jordan Crugnale said the government was working alongside Metro to find ways to reduce passenger pressure. "More people are catching trains now more than ever before and this is why we've added more than 530 services across the network," Ms Crugnale said. "The government continues to work with Metro to reduce crowding and we're also undertaking a range of short-term measures to reduce crowding and regular reviews of timetables for any potential improvements." But Mr Battin said they're simply not doing enough. "Labor has left Officer residents with two choices for their daily commute; be stuck on

the Monash or be packed in like sardines on the Pakenham Line," Mr Battin said. "The south east is at a standstill. Cardinia resident's daily commute is only getting longer and they're being forced to spend less time with their families." Meanwhile, Officer Station itself has been thrown into the spotlight with the Member for Gembrook accusing the government of failing to provide a start date for an election promise of an additional 500 car parks at the station. There are currently no toilet facilities, customer service representatives, lifts or connecting bus services at the station. "Under Daniel Andrews, Victorians are having their quality of life diminished, having no escape from the peak-hour chaos," he added.

It's no secret the shire is one of the fastest growing areas in the state with six families moving into Cardinia each day, residents are faced with the gruelling decision of sitting in traffic on the Monash or squishing into a packed train carriage. New figures from the Department of Transport revealed Officer Station has recorded the biggest passenger increase with a staggering surge of 537 per cent. From 2018-19, 123,000 passengers were forced to fight for a spot on the train, compared to 2013-14 when only 19,000 users relied on the rail station. Meanwhile, Cardinia Road Station recorded an increase of 55 per cent, with 382,000 pas-

senger numbers recorded, up from 247,000 in 2013-14. Just shy of 80 million passengers travel through Melbourne's City Loop annually with our rail network barely keeping up with the demands of our growing population.

health care system for the entire community. According to government figures, 45 per cent of metropolitan emergency department presentations are non-urgent. Tiny Hearts has also compiled statistics from participants, illustrating the importance of teaching the critical first aid skills. After the course, 98 per cent of parents said they felt more confident to act effectively in an emergency. Almost 50 per cent reported that they had used their acquired infant and child first aid knowledge within six months of undertaking the course. Narre Warren's Shelby Cooke, who performed CPR on her choking two-year-old daughter while paramedics rushed to their home, stressed the importance of first aid training. She believes that had she not received the course through her workplace, her daughter may have suffocated. "I still owe everything to having those skills," she said. "The more people that are equipped with them, the less tragedies we're going to see with children, babies and toddlers. "It's such a frightening thing to go through - so you need to be prepared." The free sessions will be held across the region, including at Beaconhills College, in Pakenham. Topics covered will include choking, fevers, convulsions, burns, drowning, bleeding, caring for an unconscious person, bites and stings and head injuries. Parents or caregivers interested in undertaking the free training can sign up by heading to: www.tinyheartsfirstaid.com/fundedcourse.

Hearts to help

A lifesaving Pakenham-based venture, spearheaded by a paramedic and a teacher, has received a federal cash injection to provide free first aid training throughout Melbourne's south-east. Tiny Hearts - founded by sisters Rachael Waia and Nikki Jurcutz - will arm 1800 local parents and carers with the skillsets required to save their children in the event of an emergency. In a regional first, 300 parents are also set to be trained bilingually, catering for Chinese and Afghan communities. Their journey began in a garage, but Tiny Hearts now has a headquarters in Pakenham's Industrial Park - proving that business success is attainable under the most challenging circumstances. Ms Waia, a former educator and volunteer first responder, was first aid trained when she was just 15 years old. She is determined to share her vital knowledge with as many parents as possible. "I've got two kids of my own and I know what it's like when they choke and when they're really sick," she said. "Because we've got such a good report built with our parents, we get a lot of feedback where they say, hey, you literally saved our babies' lives. "I love what I do - waking up and making a difference." Tiny Hearts worked in conjunction with the South East Melbourne Primary Health Network to secure the federal grant. The organisation also hopes to reduce the number of inappropriate admissions to the emergency department and create a better

IN BRIEF Police swoop on teens following crime spree

Helpers need help By Brendan Rees Two not-for-profit hubs helping the Casey's most vulnerable are struggling to cope with demand and will work closely with Casey council to discuss details of newly funded sites. Casey North Community Information and Support Service's lease has expired with their tenure uncertain while Cranbourne Information and Support Service needs to expand its floor space. Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon successfully moved a motion at a 3 September council meeting proposing interim accommodation measures for the two hubs. Council will find ways of funding Casey North CISS's request to relocate from Victor Cresent in Narre Warren to a larger office in Verdun Drive in Narre Warren - with a pledge of providing more than $1.3 million over five years including refurbishment and rent. Another $1.3 million from council will aim to upgrade the old shire officers and post office building in Cranbourne which connects the existing Cranbourne CISS building - allowing it to more space. "These problems need a solution and cannot wait five years or more," Cr Stapledon said. The two hubs, which offer referrals and crisis support services were "growing beyond capacity," she said. "Years of growth have put pressure on these information and support services and their buildings are too small to keep up with the demand. "We acknowledge the absolute fantastic job that they do," Cr Stapledon said.

Cranbourne CISS executive officer, Leanne Petrides is grateful for Casey Council's support to Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS expand their office space. 179836 Cranbourne CISS's executive officer Leanne Petrides, said her service was "incredibly grateful" for council's support. "Most people coming to CISS receive assistance for more than one matter, and the need for our services increases annually," she said, adding their service helped nearly 35,000 in the year to June. "With an extended facility, our one-stopshop capacity will increase; we will be able to offer a free community meeting space, and expanded service delivery such as family violence services and services for refugees. "Additionally - we have outreach services co-located with us who also see clients for crisis housing, counselling and other specialist services," Ms Petrides said.

Ms Petrides said they had limited space with no capacity to hold meetings, deliver services each day, or store essential items. "This is wonderful news for our local community and we thank the mayor, councillors and the various council staff for all their work on this project." It also said the Cranbourne project was less urgent due to the tenure security of the council owned building. Council says future building options will be explored while the interim measures were in place. A report is expected to come back to council in December. Casey North CISS has been contacted for comment.

False alarm at hospital

Mayor walks the walk for needed housing By Taylah Eastwell The lack of supported accommodation facilities for adults living with disabilities is taking its toll on carers and parents, with thousands left with no option but to live in unsuitable homes lacking vital supports. City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapeldon is taking a step towards helping families in these situations, pulling on the walking shoes to treck up to 10 kilometres each day between Saturday 14 September and Sunday 22 September to raise money for the Wolfdene Foundation's Project 28 Initiative. The project 28 initiative seeks to address the current shortfall of over 28,000 households Australia wide for people living with a disability and aims to create 28 supported accommodation units by 2028. For Cranbourne resident Christine Ritchie and her family, awareness and fundraising for new supported accommodation facilities would provide great relief. Christine's brother Anthony lives with a disability and upon the death of their mother, Anthony's care was up to their 81-year old father who is concerned about how he will care for his son in the future. "My dad is 81 and he has a walker and a

"It's only recently, after a health scare, that dad's been able to get fulltime carers to come in, but before that he was doing it all on his own, including getting him ready for bed and showering him." Both Anthony and Christine's elderly father have suffered falls recently, making it unsafe for Anthony to remain in the home and extremely hard on their father to care for him. "I don't know what to do, he wants to stay at home with my dad, but it's not always going to

Four teenagers from Casey have been charged with armed robbery and robbery with police also finding an unloaded firearm at the time of their arrest. The boys, a 17-year-old from Cranbourne West, and 15-year-old from Clyde North, and a 15-year-old boy from Cranbourne, and a 16-year-old boy from Hallam were arrested in a Commodore with allegedly stolen plates on the Eastern Freeway at 9pm on Thursday 5 September. They were among six youths arrested in the car in Kew following a joint police operation of Box Hill Embona and Dandenong Southern Metro Crime Team. Police have linked the youths to a series of assault and robberies in and around Wright Street Clayton, between 7.30 and 8.30pm on 5 September. During the arrests police allege an unloaded firearm was found nearby to the Commodore. It is alleged they targeted pedestrians and stole phones, wallets and bags, police say. A 36-year-old man from Clayton and a 21-year-old woman from Cheltenham, received minor injuries during the alleged robberies. The other victims, a 22-year-old man from Clayton, a 20-year-old man from Rowville, and a 21-year-old man from Glen Waverley were not injured. The four Casey youths as well as a 17-yearold boy from Collingwood and 15-year-old boy of no fixed address have been charged with armed robbery and robbery and will appear before a Children's Court at a later date. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

be possible," said Christine. Cr Stapeldon invites members of the community to join her in the walk for a worthy cause, which will see her visit community groups, businesses and local charities over the period before finishing at the Doveton Show. "Please join me between 14 and 22 September, and remember that every dollar counts, so if you are in a position to spare a little bit of money, we welcome all donations to support the wonderful initiative that is Project 28," Cr Stapeldon said. "I would love to see people from all areas of the community get behind this cause, as not only is this something dear to my heart, but the challenges faced by people who live with a disability, as well as their carers, is something everyone should be aware of," Cr Stapeldon added. Christine praised Cr Stapledon for taking up the opportunity to promote the project, saying the supported accommodation units would be an ideal outcome for her family. "They're built to the person and most importantly for us, they would be close to home," Christine added. Cr Stapeldon's full walking schedule can be accessed on the City of Casey website.

A smoking toaster in the lunchroom at St John of God Hospital in Berwick triggered a fire alarm on Monday morning, 9 September. Firefighters from Berwick, Hallam, Beaconsfield fire brigades received a call about 11am where they found the toaster causing the problem. "Just a small cooking incident inside so nothing bad," a Berwick fire brigade spokesperson said. There was no damage and the hospital did not have to be evacuated. Firefighters cleared the scene within 15 minutes.

Light pole fixed at Casey ARC Casey Council has made repairs to a light pole near Casey ARC after discovering a loose bolt nut. It comes after a member of Casey ARC reported the hazard to council. Casey manager of city presentation David Richardson said an inspection found a rag bolt nut was not completely flush as it was sitting on a lip of concrete. "We had to grind the thin bit of concrete away to allow the nut to be tightened," he said. "Council has repaired the light pole near Casey ARC and contacted the resident to advise that the works had been completed."

A pensioner says a large pothole along Glasscocks Road in Cranbourne North caused about $700 damage to his car - and is fuming Casey Council knocked back his claim. Gordon Clark of Narre Warren South said he was driving home about 6pm on 12 July when he hit about a 15cm deep pothole between Mountainview Boulevard and Datura Avenue. The impact to his Hyundai Genesis caused a chip on a wheel rim and a blister on the tyre. But Mr Clark said council wouldn't reimburse him because "it didn't come to the amount of $1460 under the Road Management Act 2004" and referred him to his insurance company. "Being a pensioner, I had to use my savings which left me with only a small amount in my bank account," he said. "My motor vehicle has 19 inch wheels and the cost of the new tyre was $350 with the wheel alignment bringing costs to $700. "You can make a one off payment surely for someone that's on a pension," he said. Casey manager of governance Holly De Kretser said repairs were undertaken along Glasscocks Road last week with repainting of lines to occur over the next fortnight. Ms De Kretser said matters of compensation or reimbursement were confidential between the claimant and council; however council uses an independent claims handler to assess liability. "It is advisable for claimants to first deal with their insurance company who may then

"The Road Management Act 2004 requires any individual seeking compensation for damages to property arising from the condition of the roadway to pay the first $1460 of any claim, regardless of liability. Any claim below this threshold should be claimed against private insurance." Mr Clark said he remembered reading an article "a few years ago" saying Councillor Wayne Smith was reimbursed after his car was damaged by an uneven road. Cr Smith said he hit a pothole on Pound Road in Hampton Park about 15 years ago but never made a claim to council. "Council never reimbursed me; it was a Vi-

cRoads issue," Cr Smith said. He added: "I never went for compensation with VicRoads ... it was just the story that VicRoads needed to fix up their pot holes which I think they subsequently did." Meanwhile, Mr Clark, who is a former police officer, said he was preparing a Freedom of Information request seeking all documentation relating to Cr Smith's alleged claim. The night Mr Clark's car was damaged he went back to photograph the scene and saw more cars "breaking up the pothole even more." He said council workers fixed potholes along the road but was "broken up again" only days later.

Students collaborate on disability By Danielle Kutchel

Strong winds brought a tree down in Cranbourne East.

Picture: NARRE WARREN SES

High winds havoc By Brendan Rees Narre Warren State Emergency Service volunteers responded to a call for help after a tree fell on a vehicle in Cranbourne East on Monday morning, 9 September. Unit volunteer Bryce Wickham said strong winds had uprooted the large tree on Mayfield Road but luckily no one was injured. "The home owner said that he'd woken to the sound of the strong winds but was then surprised to hear a very loud thud," Mr Wickham said. "When we saw the damage, we knew exactly what had caused that loud thud - it was the

very large tree lying across the home owner's car and precariously leaning on the house." The car wasn't so lucky with a smashed windscreen and two large dents on the roof. Mr Wickham said after assessing the area for safety hazards, they removed the tree. It has been the second time in weeks that Narre Warren SES have been called to a job where the storms have caused uprooting of trees. Narre Warren SES also responded to an incident on Sunday evening, 8 September where a van had collided with a tree on Dee Way Road in Narre Warren. SES volunteer Sue Brauner said the van had

collided with the tree causing the tree to split and collapse on the road about 10.40pm. "It was very apparent that the tree was a hazard and needed to be safely cleared away," Ms Brauner said. "After a solid two hours of cutting the tree in torrential weather conditions, the job was complete and we could head back to the unit." On Saturday night, 7 September SES volunteers were called to help Victoria Police and Highway Patrol by providing lighting following a fatal crash in Hallam where a car, travelling on Apollo Drive, struck the rear of a parked truck just after 9.30pm, killing the male driver of the car.

Students from Marnebek School visited their counterparts at Alkira Secondary College last month for a day of fun and collaboration. The visit took place on Thursday 29 August and was organised as a part of the Alkira Intermediate VCAL students' study on disability. According to Alkira Intermediate VCAL student Phoebe, the Alkira students worked "in small groups to run different activities designed to engage and involve the Marnebek students in challenging learning activities." Some of the activities included engineering and building structures using spaghetti and marshmallows, telling stories to invoke laughter, and designing paper chatterboxes and aeroplanes. The day's final activity, musical statues and line dancing, "had everyone on their feet", Phoebe said. The friendship and discussions continued over morning tea and was followed by studentled tours of the Alkira campus, ending with a barbecue and group photo. It was agreed that all of the students should meet up again in the future and build upon the relationships that were made during this visit. Russell Green and Ann Barkby, 'Community Connections' helpers for Marnebek School, hailed the day as being well organised and thanked the Alkira VCAL students for "their caring and sensitive attitude and support for the Marnebek students."

Pakenham Pioneers Market Place proposed construction to begin 2020 Pioneers Market Place, Pakenham's proposed new lifestyle and entertainment complex, is planned to commence construction in 2020, with proposed completion in early 2022. Pioneers Market Place is set to become a hub of affordable shopping, bringing Kmart, a full-scale Coles supermarket, a multiscreen cinema complex, and a 600-space underground carpark to Pakenham. The centre, to be located at 900 Princes Highway, Village Lakeside East, will greatly enhance shopping choice and convenience, reducing the need for residents to travel outside the local area. It is expected that the locally owned and operated Pioneers Market Place will generate approximately 414 ongoing jobs, as well as approximately 200 jobs during its yearlong construction phase. The new full-size Coles, Kmart and multi-screen cinema are hotly anticipated by the local community. Currently, the closest Kmart and cinema to Pakenham is more than 20 kilometres away in Narre Warren. Pioneers Market Place will also support a range of specialty shops, from cafes to greengrocers, and a medical centre. The location of the shopping complex will mean that it is surrounded by existing community facilities, such as Cardinia Life (Pakenham Indoor Sports Complex), and Toomuc Recreational Reserve. Pioneers Market Place will contribute to this vibrant, well serviced and accessible neighbourhood. It will add to improved liveability, which is expected to have a positive impact on local home and land values into the future. The Pakenham community can show its support for Pioneers Market Place by following @pioneersmarketplace on social media.

ENTERTAINMENT

A tasty step back in time By Brendan Rees A spectacular night of 1920s elegance and jazzy partying is set to descend upon Cranbourne Turf Club for a superb cause. Assisting Casey Education (ACE) Foundation, a non-for-profit organisation, which provides a helping hand to disadvantaged students across Casey, is inviting the community to step back in time for a Great Gatsby dinner on Saturday 26 October. Money raised will go towards children who are experiencing difficulties in their educational pursuits by providing free eye tests with optometrists in Casey, meal replacement drinks and reading books. Entertainment on the night includes a live

band, a surprise act, roaming entertainers, free give-aways, a big live auction, and dress-up photo booths. ACE provides 2,500 meal replacement drinks to 12 public high schools every four weeks - for those who may not have breakfast or have a prepared lunch. An additional $600 is provided every year to each public secondary and primary school in the municipality for students. The foundation's chair, Dr Leon Shapero, said 100 per cent of money raised goes straight into the foundation. "The foundation has no costs. All administrative expenses and even the annual gala fundraising dinner are fully funded," he said. "So every dollar of the admission price

reaches a child. "We are presently seeking items big or small for our silent auction. If you are able to assist please contact us on 0459 520 010 www. acefoundation.org.au or visit us on Facebook aidingcaseyeducation," Dr Shapero said. Early bidding for the night's silent auction will start from 11 September. To check items and start bidding visit: 32auctions.com/ACEfoundation. Cost includes a three course meal, canapes, wine, beer, champagne and soft drinks. Tickets are $135 tickets can be purchased online via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite. com.au/e/ace-great-gatsby-fundraiser-tickets -60171416326

One win from grand final By Tyler Lewis The Gippsland Power is 100 minutes of its best football away from a spot in the NAB League grand final. The Power was challenged early by the Western Jets on the weekend, conceding the first two majors before climbing back into the contest to only run away with it moments later. Despite the Jets’ ferocity and hunger around the contest, they only held a two-goal buffer before Harvey Neocleous - who booted three against the Jets in the earlier years fixture - crumbed his first for the afternoon in the driving rain. While trailing at the first interval, it felt as though Western had thrown everything it had in the opening 25 minutes and it still wasn’t enough to put the Power away. Caleb Serong was the first to hit the scoreboard in the opening stages of the second term before Nick Prowd and Neocleous again converted majors, while the back six held the Jets scoreless in the second term. Holding a 20-point lead at the 11-minute mark of the third term, the Power hadn’t put Western away, but Fraser Phillips’ strong mark and goal, followed by Josh Smith converting inside a minute pushed the margin out beyond five goals in the blink of an eye. The Power then went bang again only moments later, this time through smooth mover Ryan Sparkes and regular performer Sam Flanders. The match opened up in the final term with seven majors added by the combining sides, but for Western the horse had already long bolted, with the Power running out 11.9 (75) to 6.4 (40) winners. Power coach Rhett McLennan was pleased with his side’s reaction to the loss against Oakleigh and thrilled they are rewarded with a finals win after a slow start to the match. “(It was a) nice relief for the boys to have their first finals win of the season after a really solid home and away season,” he said. “There is always a weight of expectations when you lose that first final to not go out in straight sets. “In the important games where the pace of the game is quicker, I think some of our guys went into a mode where they want to showcase their talent. “But especially in finals you don’t get the opportunity to do that until the hard work has been done and you have the upper hand over your opponent.

Big man Josh Smith brings down 2019 Morrish Medalist Lucas Rocci in the driving rain at Ikon Park. “We put the cart ahead of the horse a little bit there but to their credit they thought on their feet quite well. “Once the game settled down and we got it back to an even arm wrestle in the halfway of the first up until probably five minutes until the last quarter where we put the foot off the peddle.” The Power identified the best match-ups for the two dynamic Western forwards in Emerson Jeka and Archi Manton in Mitch Bentvelzen and Tye Hourigan, but McLennan says the back six as a collective were a big contributor in why his side has a game next week. “They were sensational (Hourigan and Bent-

velzen), we named them in our best,” he said. “The job they did, the ability to stick to the task and not actually worry about what happened in the previous contest was fantastic. “Not only those two but the rest of the backline to help out in those two pivotal roles. “We couldn’t be happier for those two but for the rest who went through the backline and helped out as well.” Last week the Power was guided by a terrific performance by Sam Flanders and the week before it was Riley Baldi, but this week it was the performance of the collective 23, something that makes McLennan very pleased. “It is a real focus of ours that everyone is

Picture: COURTESY OF KATE MITCHELL playing their role,” he said. “We felt that last week against Oakleigh we had a lot of standouts but this week everyone played their role. “Our great players got a lot of the football and a lot of our players who played roles did them well. “I think everyone who played on Saturday can walk off the ground and say they had their moments where they needed to step up and they did so I think they should be very happy with their performances.” The Power now plays minor premier, the Eastern Ranges - which had the week off - in a preliminary final on Saturday.

They’re doing it for ‘Juzzy’ in a must-see Twenty20 clash By Nick Creely The Dandenong Football Netball Club and Fountain Gate Cricket Club will come together to hit Lymphoma for six when both clubs play off in a Twenty20 match on Sunday 22 September for one of its favourite sons. Justin ’Juzzy’ Smith, 24 - the vice-president and much-loved member of both clubs - was recently diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma in the stomach, groin and brain, in what is going to be an extensive journey to recovery after undergoing chemotherapy. Both clubs have decided to hold a special fundraising Twenty20 clash at Max Pawsey Reserve in Narre Warren - with the cricketers set to take on the footballers from 12pm - to raise funds for Justin and his family to help pay medical costs, including his hospital stay, treatment and living expenses, with Justin unable to work at the moment. There will be raffles, auctions, face painting, a jumping castle, as well as plenty of food and drinks on sale on the day. The boundaries should also be tested, with plenty of fours and sixes, as well as spectacular moments in the field almost a certainty. Dandenong Football Club committee member Gail Smith - who is organizing the event - said that Justin’s impact on both clubs is immeasurable. “He is a dedicated, hard-working man, who puts his heart and soul into the football club, and I also work with him in the workforce, and 18 STAR NEWS

His integrity is second to none.

She believes it’s what community is all about. “When he had to finish up at work, we knew he wouldn’t have any funds coming in, so we

knew he’d be struggling,” she said. “As a football club committee we discussed it, and we wanted to do a fundraiser, and because he’s heavily involved in the cricket club to, we decided to join with them and contact them, and they came up with the suggestion of the Twenty20 match - the cricketers taking on the footballers. “We just want to assist him with his dayto-day living expenses, as he’s not going to be able to work for at least another six months. We want to also raise funds to help his partner Courtney, and his parents, as we all know how expensive parking at the hospital is.” And Gail urged the community to get behind Justin on what is going to be a special day, hoping everyone can dig deep and help get the family through a rough trot. “It’s extremely important that we can get as many people as possible to attend to support Justin and his family,” she said. “We can’t support him with his health, and we can’t take away what he’s going through, but we can try and make it a bit easier for him financially “ If anyone would like any further details, or can donate items for the raffle or food, can contact Gail on 0409 802 339. Justin is also writing a blog documenting his brave journey before he was diagnosed and his treatment in hospital.

of the year, and losing Greg Kelly in pretty emotional circumstances, to then have a club build and grow together - this is really a testament to how strong we are, and how well led we are by Lee Jones. “From every committee member - from the people who do the fundraising, to everyone who works in the canteen - the true belief was that we belong in West Gippsland. “This has been a building season - building the foundations for what’s to come. “Last year we had to sell the dream of thinking we were going to be competitive, but next year we know we will be. “We’re a small town with a massive, massive heart and anyone who saw Tooradin on Saturday night and the amount of people who were there would have just been blown away. “They recently named the function room at the Sports Club the ‘Rex Genoni Function Room’, but on Saturday night it was definitely the ‘Jake Genoni Function Room’, without a doubt. “It’s so important we embrace this because it’s a once in a lifetime thing, potentially. “It might be ‘just a twos flag’, but it means so, so much to our community.” Back at the rooms, a spine-tingling rendition of ‘Seagulls Forever’ - featuring in excess of 150 voices - rang out. Together, forever - just how it should be. Phillip Island capped off a dominant day on the football field with premierships in both junior grades. The Bulldogs kicked off the day with a 4.4 (28) to 2.3 (15) win against Nar Nar Goon in the under-16 grand final. Island skipper Harry O’Brien was named best on ground, with Orlando Kane-Gillard and Finn Merryfull also catching the eye for the premiers. Bailey Beet, Jack Gribbin and Euan Grierson were best for the Goon. It was a similar story in the under-18 grand final, with Phillip Island eventually overcoming Inverloch Kongwak 4.3 (27) to 2.6 (18). Daniel Bourke was awarded the AFL Victoria Country Medal, while Josh Ryan and Kai MacKenzie were among the other standouts for the Bulldogs. Patrick Holian, Jack Hutchinson and Cooper McInnes were best for the Sea Eagles. The day culiminated in a senior grand final for the ages, where Phillip Island - previously undefeated in the 2019 season - remained that way, if only just. In an absorbing battle with an impressive Cora Lynn, the Bulldogs held on at the death to claim a famous victory - 9.11 (65) to 9.7 (61).

It may have been a game of reserve grade footy, but its result elicited the kind of emotional response that will reverberate around the Tooradin-Dalmore Football Netball Club for a long time to come. When Jake Genoni was awarded a 50-metre penalty and slotted the resultant kick from inside the 50-metre arc after the final siren sounded in the West Gippsland Football Netball Competition (WGFNC) at Garfield on Saturday, the Seagulls had clinched their first ever reserves flag - 4.7 (31) to 4.3 (27). That accomplishment alone, given the long history of the club, is remarkable. But it’s even more so when considering the circumstances behind it. At the end of the final ever SEFNL season, the Seagulls were facing an uncertain future - unsure of what a potential return to West Gippsland would mean. And that uncertainty was magnified with the tragic and sudden loss of then club president Greg Kelly before the 2019 campaign. But this season soon became one of resilience, hope, and ultimately incredible success as the Gulls celebrated four premierships on Saturday at Beswick Street - the reserves footy, along with the A Grade, B Grade, and C Grade netball. The senior footballers, too, had some genuine long-awaited success of their own - reaching the preliminary final. And on Saturday, they sprinted out on to the ground to celebrate with their reserves brothers in arms. This was a day for the whole club to savour. “It was just unreal - that’s the word I’ve been repeating for the past however many hours. It was just unreal,” said Nick Pouki, the Seagulls’ first ever reserves premiership captain - and the club’s football director - with a particularly croaky voice on Sunday. “I remember looking at the clock at the 19:46 mark of the final term and I thought to myself ‘I can’t believe we’re going to lose a grand final by two points’. “Then moments after that I just ran to the goal-line and watched the footy sail over my head and I still can’t believe it. “With Jake, if he took that shot at training, he’d make probably seven out of 10 so you’d be pretty confident and back him in. “But with the breeze, that footy didn’t even deviate. “Sometimes he’ll kick the most unreal goals where he’ll just kick this forward, tumbling thing that’ll go through - and then all of a sudden he kicks the clearest drop punt you’ll see to win a premiership.” Genoni is the son of past president, Derek - one of the most revered figures at the club, with a family history there spanning the generations. But on Saturday night at the Tooradin Sports Club, it was Jake who took centre stage. “You couldn’t have written a script any better than that - we hadn’t even made a twos grand final since 1984, and we’ve never won a twos premiership as a club,” Pouki explained. “For a Genoni to kick the winning goal to get the first, that’s just ridiculous.” Pouki understandably struggled to explain just what Saturday’s result meant to the Seagulls. “Words can’t describe it, honestly,” he said. “To go back to where we started at the start
