Shoplifters nabbed By Alesha Capone Wyndham police have arrested 49 shoplifters in three days as part of a crackdown on thefts from retail businesses. Acting Inspector Aaron Riches said that officers made the arrests this month. He said that Wyndham police, in partnership with local shopping centres and their loss prevention officers, were working together to address the “increasing trend” of shoplifting. Acting Inspector Riches said that so far the efforts had focused on shopping centres located in Werribee and Tarneit. He said some of the most common items stolen by those arrested included meat, clothing, mobile phones and white goods. “In some cases, people can later trade the

meat for drugs – some drug dealers accept meat in return for drugs,” Acting Inspector Riches said. He said that the reasons given for shoplifting were “many and varied” and the people arrested included both men and women. “The ages ranged from kids to the oldest being a 60-year-old man,” he said. Wyndham police last year recorded 850 shoplifting offences in the municipality, compared to 670 in 2017. Under Victorian law, shoplifting is considered theft and can result in penalties of imprisonment, fines or both. Courts can also order people found guilty of shoplifting to return the stolen goods or pay for them. A report from the Sentencing Advisory Council into the sentencing outcomes of people found guilty of theft in the Magistrates Court of Victoria from 2012-13 to 2016-17 found that 18 per cent of shoplifting cases resulted in a custodial sentence. The Australian Retailers Association last year told The Australian newspaper that retail theft cost the industry an estimated $9.5 billion in lost revenue each year. Anyone with information about shoplifting can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Young Hoppers Crossing resident Chrissy is egg-cited about Easter. The three-year-old is looking forward to finding out which treats the Easter Bunny will bring her – just like thousands of children across the west. Wyndham council, in partnership with Hodges Werribee, will host free Easter egg hunts on Wednesday, April 17, and Thursday, April 18. The sessions will be held at 2pm on Wednesday and 11am and 2pm on Thursday, with activities including face-painting and a colouring corner. The Easter egg hunts will start at Kelly Park.

Police drive home theft warning By Alesha Capone Police have warned Wyndham residents that the number of thefts from cars has “risen significantly” since the start of the year. Acting Inspector Aaron Riches said that between January and April, there was a 25 to 30 per cent increase in thefts from cars in Wyndham, compared to the previous 12 months. “It’s a continuing trend in Wyndham,” he said. Acting Inspector Riches said that thefts of vehicles had also risen in Wyndham. He said

police were taking a “proactive approach” to catching offenders, including patrolling hotspots and carparks in marked and unmarked police cars. He said that while police had already made a number of arrests, it was important for drivers to take a “common sense approach” to help prevent their cars being targeted by thieves. Acting Inspector Riches said this included locking parked cars, even those parked in residential streets and garages. “There were a couple of jobs we had in January where three, four, five cars were

seat of a car, or your wallet, doesn’t make sense,” he said. “Also, if there is a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses on the dash or $60 in small change in the console, this is something that might induce an offender to break into a car. “It’s happening in train station carparks, residential streets, shopping centres – right across the board,” he said. Last year, police recorded 1373 thefts from motor vehicles in Wyndham (compared to 1479 the previous year) and 484 thefts of a motor vehicle (compared to 590 the previous year).

Buying a new house is now virtually easy

Eileen Donovan, who will celebrate her 100th birthday later this month, says that her proudest achievement is her family. Mrs Donovan, who was born on April 25, 1919, is a resident of the Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community in Werribee. She said the secret to living a long life was good food and good family. “I have three wonderful sons and three lovely daughters-in-law,” she said. Mrs Donovan also has several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. “They are all very good people and all very lovely to me,” she said. “I can’t complain – I’m a very happy lady and I am very lucky.” Mrs Donovan said both of her parents came from England. Her father served in the British army before immigrating to Australia. Mrs Donovan grew up in Tasmania and later moved to Victoria, where she lived in Longford and Avondale Heights. “Also, I don’t play it anymore, but I used to love hockey,” she said. “I played for some country clubs, which was very nice and we enjoyed ourselves, which is the main thing.” Mrs Donovan said she barracked for Carlton in the AFL and enjoyed eating chocolate – “but not too much”. For her 100th birthday, her family is planning to celebrate with a party at Wyndham Lodge. Mrs Donovan said she had received letters from the Queen and Governor-General, congratulating her on turning 100.

Property buyers are being offered a virtual tour of one of Wyndham Vale’s newest residential communities. New touch-screen technology at the Savana information centre aims at making the experience of shopping for house and land packages in the $129 million project more interactive. Project sales manager Leonie Sexton said customers could scroll through plans for Savana and discover what it was like to live in a community before they make “one of the most important decisions of their lives”. Developers AVID Property Group last week announced the latest land release – 19 blocks starting at $219,000. Group development manager Chris Ravat said the release was well positioned near a future park and close to public transport, shops and a medical centre. Mr Ravat said the project would eventually deliver 640 homes for more than 2000 new residents. “Future releases will also see the development of beautiful river frontage walking tracks,” he said. “We will soon have Werribee River access, so there will be a reserve at the northern end and walking tracks along the river at the southern end, which will have huge lifestyle appeal.”

Boy injured in hit and run scare Briefs

CoNTACT uS

By Alesha Capone A mother says she is shocked by the actions of a driver who hit her 10-year-old son while he was cycling home from school in Sanctuary Lakes. ADvERTiSiNg Marlene (who only wanted to be known by her first name) said her son was riding near a roundabout at the Point Cook Road and Jamieson Way intersection, about 3.30-3.40pm on Thursday, March 28, when the incident occurred. Marlene said a woman driving a black car –

which her son described as “medium-sized�– collided with him as he cycled across the road. Her son fell onto the road and the woman drove over his bicycle, which was broken in the process. The woman wound down her car window and asked Marlene’s son ‘Are you OK?’, to which he replied “Yes�. Marlene said the woman, whom her son described as dark-haired and wearing sunglasses, drove away. Marlene said although her son said he was

alright, she was angry that the driver did not stop or offer to call someone for him. “He was just left on the side of the road, with a broke bike, alone, with a swollen wrist and a large bump on his knee,� Marlene said, “He said to me later ‘Mum, when I was down on the street, I saw the lady roll over my bike and I was worried she would roll over me, but I was quite happy that she didn’t’.� Another woman, who was driving behind the black car, got out of her car and walked Marlene’s son to the footpath, before returning

to her own vehicle. Marlene said luckily, not long afterwards, a family friend drove by, saw her son and took him to a GP. Marlene said she and her husband rushed from work to see their son. She said although they had reported the accident to police, officers had declined to Certificate investigate, as opportunity her son’s injuries were not considered serious. Marlene has posted an appeal on the Point Cook Community Facebook page for anyone with information about the collision.

The first of 50 new hybrid-technology buses was last week launched on high-capacity routes including Wyndham’s 170, 180, 192, 439, 441 and 443, as well as other routes in the west. The environmentally-friendly fleet is being introduced by bus operator CDC Victoria, a subsidiary of ComfortDelGro. All 50 buses in the hybrid fleet will be in service on CDC routes in Wyndham, Oakleigh and Sunshine by mid-2022. Body manufacturing and fit-outs of the hybrid buses is being completed by Volgren in Dandenong, and all the buses will feature Volvo’s Parallel Hybrid driveline and meet Euro 6 emission standards. In testing, the driveline was shown to reduce nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions by up to 50 per cent, as well as reduce fuel and carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40 per cent.

Call for action on cliff erosion By Esther Lauaki Residents have renewed calls for Wyndham council to conduct erosion control works and establish a solid management plan of the K Road Cliffs in the wake of a recent landslide. A section of land fell away from the cliff into the Werribee River on April 5 as restaurant owner Anthony Taylor looked on. “I was outside and all I could hear was a really loud sound coming from behind me and when I turned around I saw it go,” Mr Taylor, of The Views Function Bar and Grill, told Star Weekly. “It sounded like loud thunder.” Council staff have since been working to erect safety barriers, he said. Wyndham economy, innovation, and liveability director Peter McKinnon said the small collapse was “due to natural erosion exacerbated by drainage issues at the site”. “Access has been temporarily restricted in the interests of public safety and to further protect the Cliffs which are on Crown Land, whilst remediation works can be carried out,” Mr McKinnon said. “We’ve undertaken a geotechnical assessment of the site, and have been told there is a chance that there could be a small additional fall. “We have fenced off the site to ensure this does not pose a risk to the public. “Whilst erosion is an unavoidable occurrence, we are finalising a hydrological report based on the entire catchment and planning some drainage improvement works at the site.”

Erosion at the K Road Cliffs has long been a concern for residents and visitors to the Werribee South tourist attraction. Council received a $109,000 state grant in 2016 after two council-commissioned reports revealed that natural erosion, the age and condition of trees at the site meant work was needed to improve safety.

‘‘ ’’

It sounded like loud thunder - Anthony Taylor A draft master plan will be available for public review and comment in July. Resident Graeme Mein, a member of the Werribee South Green Wedge steering committee, said that concerned locals feel ignored. “The K Road cliffs are such an icon for Werribee,” Mr Mein said. “They’re worth saving and it needs co-ordinated effort. “Wyndham council is losing such an opportunity to work with very competent people in this community … That’s the frustration.”

Helping dads work it out A new parenting program will focus on the health and wellbeing of Wyndham dads. Fathers with children up to four years old can register for the Working Out Dads program, which kicks off at Eagle Stadium next month. The weekly after-hours sessions aim to connect, support and strengthen the capacity of dads in the very early years of parenting. Facilitator and fitness trainer Nathan Tarr said the goal was to help participants become less isolated and more supported and to promote healthy lifestyle choices during the transition to early parenting. The program, run by Tweddle child and family health service and Wyndham council, covers parenting, relationships, mental health, fitness and wellbeing.

Tweddle chief executive Jacquie O’Brien said healthy dads are “vital to families”. “Research confirms dads play a significant role in the social, cognitive, emotional and physical wellbeing of their children from infancy through to adult life,” Ms O’Brien said. Wyndham mayor Mia Shaw, council’s Family Friendly City portfolio holder, said she was proud to support the initiative. “Early intervention and prevention programs like Working Out Dads ensures that local fathers are healthy, both physically and mentally.” The seven week program starts on Thursday, May 2 from 7-9pm.

Two Hoppers Crossing men, aged 21 and 28, and a 29-year-old Tarneit man were among those arrested. A number of items were seized during the raids including a shotgun, ammunition, three motorcycles believed to be stolen, prohibited weapons and cannabis.

War’s roll call a treasure By Alesha Capone For Lyle Raison, it is important to treasure the names of all Wyndham residents who have served in past and present wars and armed conflicts. Mr Raison helps to look after the memorabilia on display at the Werribee RSL sub-branch. “I do it to help future generations and hope that they don’t forget,” Mr Raison said. As part of the display, Mr Raison has put together an ‘“Australian Women at War” gallery, including photos of women serving in World Wars I and II, in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The photos include local female cadets and Catherine “Kitty” McNaughton from Little River. She served as a nurse in World War I. A photo of Mr Raison’s wife, Pam, who served in the army for 28 years and became a lieutenant-colonel, is also among the images. Mr Raison, who spent 38 years in the army, said veterans had different experiences of war. “When they reflect back, they reflect on different things – it’s important for the public to understand that,” he said. “That’s why they like to be with their mates on Anzac Day. “Anzac Day, to me, isn’t about medals or anything – it’s about spending time with my mates and reflecting on those who died.” The Werribee RSL sub-branch will hold an Anzac Day dawn service on Thursday, April 25, from 6.30am at the cenotaph at the corner of Station Place and Watton Street, Werribee. All residents are invited. Vehicle movements and some parking areas will be restricted on the day. Watton Street, between Bridge Street and Comben Drive, will be closed from 4am-7.30am. The Station Place roadway and parking areas will be closed for the same period.

Sports boost for Point Cook A $15.7 million new sporting precinct is on the horizon for Point Cook. Wyndham council this month adopted the Bensonhurst Parade Reserve Master Plan – a vision to guide the development of sport, recreation and open space over the next decade. The 10-hectare site, located on the corner of Bensonhurst Parade and Hacketts Road, will include four soccer fields, a cricket pitch and four cricket nets, eight tennis courts with lighting and a pavilion with changerooms and other amenities accessible to multiple sports clubs. One of the tennis courts will include line marking for multiple sports, including basketball and netball. Wyndham sports development spokesman Peter Maynard said the reserve was well-needed, with existing open spaces in Point Cook already in high demand. “As anyone who lives in Point Cook knows, the booming population in this area means we are constantly working to provide more sporting facilities for local families,” Cr Maynard said. “Once complete, the facility will be capable of hosting junior and senior levels of competition and training for local sporting associations, clubs and schools. The master plan follows the recent opening of a play space and picnic area at the site. Esther Lauaki

Trailer company does a ‘runner’ By Esther Lauaki Customers and suppliers who paid thousands of dollars for trailers and parts have been left in the lurch after a Hoppers Crossing manufacturer “packed up and disappeared” in recent weeks. Hoppers Crossing Trailers, which sells, repairs, hires and manufactures trailers, has cleared out its Industrial Avenue site of about 200 units of stock and abandoned its yard with little notice to customers or suppliers.

A post on the company’s Facebook page on April 2 indicated that the business was in trouble. “Nowadays we’re facing some problems, due to which we are unable to open our physical location,” the post said. “Kindly be patient and we’ll be right back.” A customer, who asked not to be named, contacted Star Weekly last week saying he’s $5000 out of pocket. “I paid a deposit on a trailer and when I drove past the yard … there was nothing there,” he said.

“They disappeared in the middle of the night and all their phone numbers are disconnected. To anyone like me who has made a deposit on a trailer, good luck in getting your money back.” He said looters have been jumping the fence and taking parts and machinery that have been left behind. A supplier said he was owed $1200 for parts he had sold Hoppers Crossing Trailers. The company’s Facebook page was still advertising trailers for sale on April 9. Four more people have warned customers

online from making orders for trailers saying they too had lost money and their inquiries were unanswered. Mohammad Khodr said he understands the business owners have “done a runner”. “Without giving anyone notice they … took lots of people’s money who have paid deposits and paid for trailers,” Mr Khodr wrote on Monday. Star Weekly’s attempts to make contact on three phone numbers and via the Hoppers Crossing Trailers Facebook page were unsuccessful.

Big lift for tech scholars Two young Point Cook residents have been awarded scholarships to help with their university studies. Yashwin Sudarshan and Kajal Soni will receive $15,000 undergraduate scholarships from the Westpac Scholars Trust. The trust each year gives scholarships to high-school graduates who are passionate about technology and eager to explore its potential for good. Ms Soni and Mr Sudarshan are studying at RMIT University. Ms Soni is undertaking a bachelor of software engineering and Mr Sudarshan is studying for a bachelor of computer science. Mr Sudarshan said he was interested in how artificial intelligence and data science were integrated into everyday life. “I’ve always been really interested in these two areas of technology – I’d like to focus on either of them in my career,” he said.

“I want to work in these two areas to improve the lives of people in Australia and, hopefully, overseas as well.” Mr Sudarshan said that being a Westpac Scholars Trust scholarship recipient meant he had access to an “amazing network of people” among his fellow scholarship recipients. Ms Soni said receiving the scholarship was “a great honour”. She said that before applying for her university course, she was not sure which subject she wanted to study. “However, I realised that technology would be the perfect career choice for me as it caters to every field out there,” she said. “New innovations and ideas are always emerging from all areas – and the idea of being part of such evolution is what made me want to pursue a career in technology.” Alesha Capone

Amart’s giant new warehouse

The magic of memories By Esther Lauaki A trip down memory lane is on the cards for Wyndham’s senior citizens thanks to a new initiative. Aged-care workers will be trained to use “reminiscing story cards” as tools to engage and stimulate conversations with their residents. The cards feature a photograph on the front and messages on the back to prompt conversations about a person’s history,

employment, marriage, children, friends and special times in their life. The initiative, run by Wyndham council and Council on the Ageing (COTA), is designed to encourage positive discussions between two or more people. COTA Victoria chief executive Ronda Held said Wyndham was the first council in the state to activate a training and awareness program for the initiative. “Conversations are one of the most important activities and experiences for keeping

the memory and mind active for positive communication and quality of life during the ageing process,” Ms Held said. Wyndham mayor Mia Shaw said the council had developed an extensive network of services to assist senior citizens. “In the home care area, the visit by council staff could be the only contact people have and the reminiscing story cards could provide a positive and meaningful stimulus as a conversation starter,” Cr Shaw said.

A $65 million distribution centre will be built in Truganina for the retailer Amart Furniture. The company has signed a 10-year lease pre-commitment with Goodman Group for the new distribution centre, which will be constructed at the Connectwest Industrial Estate in Logistics Drive. Goodman Group will build the centre, which is scheduled for completion next year. The 48,770 square metre facility will serve as the headquarters for Amart. Amart Furniture chief executive Lee Chadwick said the Truganina distribution centre would replace an existing group of warehouses in Somerton, in the north-west suburbs of Melbourne. “The new distribution centre will provide a modern, safe and flexible workplace for our warehouse team,” Mr Chadwick said. “This was one of our top priorities when designing the facility.” Amart Furniture has a network of 63 stores nationwide, including six in Victoria, which are located in Hoppers Crossing, Braybrook, Ballarat, Campbellfield, Dandenong and Frankston. The company was founded by John Van Lieshout, one of 13 children born to Dutch parents who migrated to Australia. Su-Lin Tan, Australian Financial Review and Alesha Capone

Doggie gear with glitz Dog accessories with a big glam factor are being created for canine lovers everywhere. Point Cook-based entrepreneur Angela Infantino established her brand, Molly Barker, online less than a year ago, naming it after her great dane Labrador cross. “When I got Molly, I shopped around for products for her and I just couldn’t find anything out on the market that was beautiful and looked lovely in my home,” Ms Infantino said. “Everything was quite cutsie or cheesy … I just wanted very elegant things.” After a year of research, Ms Infantino quit her job in the building industry and went into business. “It’s lovely working from home,” she said. “The best part has been leaving the corporate

world and having something that you’re really passionate about.” Molly Barker offers a range of Australian-made leather collars, leads and waste bag holders, toys, beds and organic grooming products. Molly Barker has entered this year’s Wyndham Business Awards in the new and emerging business and people’s choice categories. Star Weekly is a media partner of the Wyndham Business Awards.

Dancing with the stars By Esther Lauaki Annabelle is striving to become Point Cook’s golden girl of ballet. The 10-year-old arrived back on home soil on Monday after making her mark at the Asian Grand Prix in Singapore at the weekend, placing seventh out of 43 competitors in the regional heats. She qualified for the finals of the competition to be held in Hong Kong in August. In recent weeks, Annabelle claimed six first place trophies at the Australian Dance Competition in the classical, neo-classical, jazz, contemporary, lyrical and self-choreographed categories. Dance teacher Genevieve Projkoska, of Point Cook Performing Arts, said Annabelle has done the school, her friends and family proud. “She’s been with the school since she was three,” Ms Projkoska said. “She’s had lots of success this year in a number of competitions. “This is the first year that she has done International competitions … it’s these types of competitions that can open doors and allow her to be noticed on the world stage.” Late last year, Annabelle attended the Youth American Grand Prix in New York and earned an invitation to return to the United States in July and attend a four week intensive dance camp. Ms Projkoska said Annabelle’s commitment to her craft is what will take her far. Annabelle also trains at Scimm Platforms Youth Company in Williamstown and the Dance Prescription program with Dr Lisa Ellis.

Mossfiel gets a makeover An $11 million redevelopment of Mossfiel Reserve in Hoppers Crossing is set to finish later this year. Construction is under way on the final features of the Mossfiel Reserve master plan, with the sport fields, landscaping and playground on track for completion in July. A new netball pavilion is scheduled to be finished by early August. Minor works to turn an informal carpark near the skate park into a dedicated 30-space carpark will be carried out throughout August and September. The redevelopment project has been funded by Wyndham council, with $1.8 million from the state government’s Growing Suburbs Fund. Wyndham’s sports development portfolio holder, Cr Peter Maynard, said the redevelopment would transform Mossfiel Reserve into a “state-of-the-art sporting facility” with multi-use sporting fields for rugby, cricket and netball, new lighting, barbecues and shelters, footpaths and trees. “Two community pavilions will be built on the site for use by both tenant sporting clubs and community groups,” Cr Maynard said. “The first is already open for hire and the second is really starting to take shape as construction progresses.” Details: wyndham.vic.gov.au/project/ mossfiel-reserve-master-plan Alesha Capone

Raising funds for a ‘good guy’ By Alesha Capone Members of the Wyndham Vale Cricket Club and Wyndhamvale Football Club are fundraising to help long-serving volunteer Paul Todd, who needs a mobility scooter. Mr Todd recently suffered a stroke, which affected the left side of his body. While he can still talk and walk very short distances with the aid of a cane, Mr Todd requires a wheelchair to travel around. However the wheelchair is only suited to indoor use, and Mr Todd requires a four-wheel

mobility scooter to get out and about outdoors. The catch is that hiring the scooter would cost Mr Todd’s family about $300 per month. Wyndham Vale Cricket Club member Tony Torcasio has started an online fundraising campaign with the aim of raising $3000 to help out with the scooter hire costs. So far, 10 people have donated $720 to the cause, including $500 from the Wyndhamvale Football Club. Mr Torcasio described Mr Todd as “an all-around good guy, he is the first to put his hand up to help others”.

Mr Torcasio said that before Mr Todd’s stroke, he was a prolific volunteer, which included coaching junior cricketers. Although he had to give up coaching the juniors after his stroke, Mr Todd still helps out at the club and enjoys visiting his mates. Since his stroke Mr Todd is no longer able to drive. He said that although his wife was a great support, she was busy with work and looking after their four children. See https://www.gofundme.com/f/uyfnwpaul-todd-scooter-purchase to make a donation.

A worthy spectacle then distributed to people in need overseas through partnering charities and humanitarian organisations.” Queen of Peace Parish Primary School principal Darran Gibbons said students were inspired to help after learning that there are millions of people overseas who can’t see clearly due to not having access to glasses. Mr Gibbons said the initiative has shown students how they can “think outside the box to help someone else”. Donations of pre-loved glasses and sunglasses can be handed in to Specsavers Werribee or at the school office. Esther Lauaki

Werribee residents are being encouraged to donate their old sunnies and spectacles as part of an initiative to help people in need. Refurbished quality spectacles are sent to men, women and children in need across the world in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, China and the Pacific as part of Lions Australia’s Recycle for Sight program. Werribee Specsavers, in partnership with Altona North’s Queen of Peace Parish Primary School, is collecting the glasses to be repaired and sent overseas. Store co-owner David Caldow said staff have been collecting pre-loved specs for six months and the extra help from the students is making all the difference. “Once glasses are collected … we send them to Lions Recycle for Sight, which runs a glasses recycling facility that quality checks, cleans and categorises the glasses,” Mr Caldow said. “If the glasses pass the quality tests, they are

Shortcut tactics raise driver ire By Alesha Capone

Small steps to big business A free Stepping Stones to Small Business program has helped several refugee and migrant women launch their own businesses, including Yeni Atencio. The Maribyrnong resident, who emigrated from Peru nine years ago, completed the program last year. Run by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Stepping Stones provides training and mentoring to support women to develop new skills and increase their participation in business and the community. While Ms Atencio, pictured, is a qualified IT specialist, she has also established her own small business. She began by making custom t-shirts, and has now expanded into promotional clothing, as well as hoodies and singlets for children and adults. “I’m so grateful for Stepping Stones,” she said. “I could not figure out how to set up my business with an ABN, buying machines, stock of clothing and not knowing the right channels through which to sell my products.” The Stepping Stones program will start in Hoppers Crossing next month. Workshops will be held at the Wyndham Youth Resource Centre each Thursday for 15 weeks from May 30, between 9.30am–3pm. Free childcare will be provided. Details: bsl.org.au/steppingstones or 9422 5650.

Drivers who use service lanes as a shortcut on busy roads and then “push” their way back into traffic make Wyndham motorists fume. Several Wyndham residents condemned motorists who engage in such behaviour after Star Weekly last week posted on Facebook that such driving tactics were happening on Sayers Road, near the Derrimut Road roundabout. Amar wrote that it “happens all the time, every single day” in Wyndham. “People are too nice … absolutely pathetic and appalling behaviour,” he said. “They should not be allowed to merge in at all.” Pauline wrote: “Every service road around Wyndham gets used like that. And then they EXPECT you to let them in!! So frustrating.” Under Victorian law, it is not illegal for drivers to drive along a service lane and re-enter a road if they are complying with the road rules. But drivers are not meant to use service roads unless they need to access a property. VicRoads road user and vehicle access director Roger Chao said: “Service roads are intended for local access only, so we urge drivers not to use these lanes to try to get ahead of traffic.” A number of Wyndham drivers said the service lane shortcut was not restricted to Sayers and Derrimut Road and that it was happening in many locations across the municipality. Beverley said “hundreds” of cars engaged in this behaviour along Leakes Road, from Derrimut Road to Palmers Road. Palmers Road northbound approaching Dohertys Road, Old Geelong Road, Greens Road, McGraths Road and Point Cook Road were named as other hotspots for the ‘shortcuts’.

Battle to save children’s centre By Goya Dmytryshchak More than 500 people have signed a petition to save Cooraminta Children’s Centre at Altona Meadows, which has been earmarked for demolition to make way for an aquatic centre. As reported by Star Weekly last month, the council’s Hobsons Bay Aquatic Strategy 2019-2030 outlines plans for a $40.75 million Western Aquatic Centre to be built at Bruce Comben Reserve. It would include an eight-lane, 25-metre pool and smaller pools, wellness centre, gym, cafe

and new childcare centre. Cooraminta committee president Belinda Koolen said parents opposed plans to replace a centre that was about 30 years old and used by 200 families. “The pool’s a great idea, but not at the expense of Cooraminta being demolished,” she said. “I feel that the pool could happily co-exist alongside the centre. “Losing the centre means losing that culture, the community, that’s been there. “It’s a diverse group of children there and when you knock that down you miss that

community feel that’s been established at that centre.” Hobsons Bay mayor Jonathon Marsden said the new aquatic centre would have an improved children’s centre. “The proposed early years facility will be an exciting addition to Altona Meadows,” he said. “If delivered, the new facility will provide more opportunities for three and four year olds to enjoy kinder in a new and improved centre. “We are currently in the middle of public consultation for the draft strategy and I strongly encourage our entire community to tell us what

you think by lodging your feedback.” Cr Colleen Gates said she was disappointed the council hadn’t consulted the centre. “It has been disappointing to find out, after it was published, that during the development of the strategy, Cooraminta were not asked if they would like a new facility or not,” she said. As reported by Star Weekly last month, the council’s Hobsons Bay Aquatic Strategy 2019-2030 “This is the first time something like this has gone out for community comment. It’s not perfect, but the intention is certainly not to compromise one service to benefit another.”

A very Welcome winner Wyndham Vale artist ‘wani’ has won this year’s Wyndham Art Prize with a video artwork titled Welcome to Country Country. wani, 28, who is also a spoken word performance artist, will receive the competition’s main prize of $10,000. He said Welcome to Country, which was filmed on a mobile phone and is a minute and 38 seconds long, depicts him and a friend driving in a car while quietly listening to an audio commentary. He was inspired to make Welcome to Country after watching an Australian television program featuring commentary about who does and does not have the right to say the word “negro” from a panel of people who were mainly white. He said the artwork was open to different interpretations, but for him, it was “about always being spoken through and at and about”.

wani said he did not expect to win the Wyndham Art Prize and that he was “ecstatic”. “It was exciting to be from Wyndham and be African, and win the prize at a time when things have been hostile to the African community,” he said. “Also, to be one of the first Africans to win is pretty cool.” Wyndham arts, culture and heritage portfolio holder Tony Hooper said 96 artists from across Australia submitted work to the contest. He said the competition’s judges described wani’s work as “a powerful observation of the contradictions and conflicts surrounding race in contemporary Australian life”. Entries into the Wyndham Art Prize will be on display at the Wyndham Art Gallery in Werribee until June 2. Alesha Capone

He also runs his own Facebook page, titled ‘Texs Troopy Travels’, where he posts photos chronicling the sights he sees while travelling, including aerial photos from his drone photography. And he uploads pictures from closer to home, showcasing subjects such as the Western Treatment Plant. Mr Acola said that since purchasing a LandCruiser Troopcarrier – which he has nicknamed ‘Ted’ – about five years ago, he has travelled around Australia about eight times, covering more than 350,000 kilometres in the process. Mr Acola said that exploring Australia, and taking photos, “is like an anti-depressant for me”. His advice to others is: “Don’t leave it until you’re old to do your travelling, and see Australia before you travel overseas” and also to visit the Simpson Desert. “See it if you can – the peace and solitude out there, of knowing you’re thousands of kilometres from any people or annoyances, it’s a very peaceful state of mind,” he said.

Landlord rues trash and dash A Hoppers Crossing landlord has been left with a $40,000 damage bill and no explanation after his tenant destroyed his rental and disappeared. Peter Papas had privately rented out the four-bedroom Hoppers Crossing house to a mother with five children. The rent was often late, but the tenant was respectful enough that he let that slide every time, Mr Papas said. “Her rent would get behind but she’d come up good and she’d pay more than her usual rent,” he said.

‘‘

I was shocked – I didn’t think she’d be like that

’’

- Peter Papas

Eventually, the rent stopped coming. When his emails went unanswered and the arrears built up, Mr Papas went to the Kathleen Crescent property. “When I went down, she was just gone,” he said. “The carpets have been ripped off, the walls have been bashed in. It’ll need a repair and paint job and a re-carpet. “I was shocked – I didn’t think she’d be like that.” Some doors were missing from wardrobes and doorways. The remaining doors were missing handles. Windows were broken and blinds and curtains missing. Terri Scheer Insurance executive manager Carolyn Parrella said taking on a tenant privately could lead to a bad time for landlords. “It can be riskier,” she said. “Being aware of the Tenancies Act and your obligations is important. Keep in touch with the tenant and keep on top of rent arrears.” Ms Parrella said malicious damage was

one of the more common claims Terri Scheer dealt with. “Loss of rent is the most common claim we have,” she said. “Very often, you get a malicious damage with a loss of rent claim. “If things are going wrong, there can be malicious damage done to the property.” The first sign of trouble for Mr Papas was when he dropped by for a visit when he was in the neighbourhood. Because he hadn’t provided notice, he couldn’t inspect the property – but something seemed not quite right.

“Every time I’d go to make an appointment [for a full inspection], she’d make some kind of excuse,” he said. “I was too bloody nice to her.” Insurance agents estimated there had been about $40,000 of damage done to the house. Mr Papas said he expected to receive compensation for most of it. He said he was unsure what prompted the damage and disappearance. “I have no idea what she’s done with the

carpets and the door handles,” he said. “But if you’re going to get some a…hole who’ll rent it and abuse it, you will.” However, the episode has put him off privately leasing for good. “We’ve got a few properties now and they’re all managed by agents,” he said. “I don’t have anything to do with tenants any more.” – Domain

Youth solitary under microscope By Esther Lauaki Port Phillip Prison is among the justice facilities under the microscope as the Victorian Ombudsman and its inspectorate look into the use of solitary confinement on young people. Inspections at Port Phillip Prison, Malmsbury Youth Justice Precinct and secure welfare services facilities were carried out in recent weeks. Port Phillip Prison at Truganina is the state’s largest maximum-security prison with a

dedicated youth unit. Malmsbury Youth Justice Precinct is a centre for males aged between 15 and 20. Secure welfare services involve facilities for children and young people under child protection orders who are at substantial and immediate risk of harm. Ombudsman Deborah Glass said the inspections were conducted in line with the United Nations’ optional protocol to the convention against torture (OPCAT). “Preventive inspections carried out under the OPCAT model seek to identify risks

that may lead to ill treatment of detained people,” Ms Glass said. “A thematic inspection across multiple facilities presents a unique opportunity to examine practices across different closed environments, allowing the investigation to identify both examples of good practice and areas for improvement. “The inspection team will gather first-hand observations; speak confidentially with children, young people and staff; have access to inspect all areas of a facility; and review relevant records and documentation.”

Ms Glass established a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency inspection team to assist her investigation. The advisory group’s members will provide staff and guide the inspection team using their expertise in dealing with childhood trauma and mental health. The advisory group includes legal, human rights, mental health, youth, education and cultural representatives. Ms Glass is expected to table a report on the investigation in the Victorian Parliament before the end of the year.

Frocks away for MS run Sebastien Wattelet has raised $10,276 after taking part in the MS Melbourne half marathon. Mr Wattelet, who grew up in Hoppers Crossing and now lives in the Melton municipality, ran the half-marathon last month. He ran in drag for the event, and was accompanied by a group of friends, under the team name of Not MSing Around. Members of the Royale Fitness gym in Bacchus Marsh also accompanied him during the event. Mr Wattelet said he wore a dress and blonde wig while running after a friend dared him to do so if he managed to raise $3000 or more.. “A lot of friends and family thought it was a great idea, obviously a little embarrassing but everyone sees the fun side of it,” Mr Wattelet said. In an unexpected bonus, Mr Wattelet said the half-marathon’s organiser’s also awarded him “best dressed” on the day.

Mr Wattelet’s wife Audrey was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2014. He said that the MS Foundation “have been great with support” ever since. “We have also had a huge amount of help from friends and family from Wyndham and Bacchus Marsh,” he said. “Friends have helped with cooking meals, cleaning our house and picking up and dropping off our kids occasionally, it’s been overwhelming.” Mr Wattelet said that his children, a teenage daughter and two young boys, were also very supportive of their mother.

Where to find a brand new home in Geelong $ for around 300,000 It’s the question on every downsizer’s lips. “Where can I purchase a brand new home for around $300,000 and still have enough cash left over to enjoy my golden years?” It’s no secret Australia is seeing a silver tsunami of over 55s seeking a more suitable place to live, and while housing affordability is generally considered a young person’s issue where they face restrictions entering the market, it is also a major problem for downsizers. A recent Productivity Commission report into the housing decisions of Baby Boomers found only about 10% of these Australians currently chose to move to smaller dwellings. The main barrier to downsizing was the availability and affordability of homes for the over 55s. However, with the emergence of the land lease ownership model delivered

by companies such as Ingenia Lifestyle, downsizers are finding this new alternative an increasingly popular option to unlock the equity from their existing dwelling and fund the next stage of their life. The unique model allows downsizers to purchase their own home and lease the land through one simple site fee covering the maintenance and management of the community. Along with operational strategies keeping residents safe, social and secure, Ingenia Lifestyle is helping residents to maintain an independent lifestyle with more choice, control and flexibility while feeling financially in control and improving their overall wellbeing. Ingenia Lifestyle’s land lease model is setting new benchmarks for affordable over 55s accommodation and the associated benefits have now seen the property developer and operator

MY WYNDHAM Connie Sivaly’s goal is to “make a world of difference”. The founder of Comfort Care talks with Esther Lauaki. What’s your connection to Wyndham?

What is your role in the charity?

My office and place of home are located in Wyndham. We feel connected to Wyndham because of its kind and warm community. Most of our clients are located in Wyndham. My children attend school in Wyndham.

I am the founder/director.

I have lived in the Wyndham area for three years and our charity is located in Wyndham. Tell us about what the Comfort Care Foundation is all about and how you became involved. Comfort Care Foundation is a charity that got registered three years ago. However, my vision started in 2010. It was my passion as I have always wanted to help the less fortunate and disadvantaged men, women and children. I first started in Tanzania where I am in the process of building a school and providing free education to the youth and building capacity for the women to provide support for their own families. Here in Wyndham, we are hoping to open a transitional homeless home where people can come stay and feel safe and supported. We currently have children excursions and mothers’ support groups, counselling for domestic violence victims and drug and alcohol rehabilitation support groups.

Helping people, making a difference to someone’s life and providing a sense of belonging to everyone. What’s something people don’t know about you? I am caring for foster kids. I am one of 12 [siblings] – most of them in Tanzania. What do you love about Wyndham? I love the vibrant community, the kind people. What would you like to see improved? I would love to improve people’s lives by providing shelter, safe environment, a place of comfort, food, clothes, motivation, encouragement to participate in social and economic activities. I would like to see young people find a place of refuge and discover their purpose in life. I would also love to see more homeless off the streets and into warm beds. My favourite quote: “I may not be able to fix the world, but if I can make one little change, that would make a world of difference”.

Liberal Party candidate for Werribee in the coming State election Cr. Stuart Southwick, has termed complaints by his Labor opponent Dr. Ken Coghill about incorrect location of signs as “petty bickering”. In last week’s ‘Banner’ Dr. Coghill said he had complained to the Chief Electoral officer about the location of Liberal Party campaign signs on road sides and on council property at Werribee South.

“I will dig up my father’s grave and put mother in it myself if I have to.” This was the heart-rending vow made by a Werribee woman Margaret Hassett, last week, after claims that her mother could not be buried in the family’s plot at the Werribee Cemetery because of flooding problems.

Werribee’s police resources are stretched to breaking point after the transfer of officers to Melbourne, says the Victoria Police Union. The union – which last week demanded the State Government increase police numbers around Victoria – has attacked the transfer a fortnight ago of four probationary constables to a new patrol unit in Melbourne’s central business district.

Racing could return to Werribee as early as next March with hopes that a new date for the Werribee Cup and a track upgrade could swell attendance. The cup is traditionally run in late October but Werribee Racing Club wants to move it to a Friday twilight fixture to coincide with the annual Weerama Festival.

Police plan major road blitz during Easter Operation Nexus is a statewide police road operation during Easter. It aims to increase driver awareness and journey planning, while reducing road trauma during this high-risk time. This five-day campaign will run from Thursday, April 18 to Monday, April 22. Road Policing Advisor Sergeant Marty Wallace says this operation will be conducted throughout all operational police regions and police service areas during the five days, using all available personnel from local road policing units, general duties and other regional resources. Victoria Police will implement a strategically co-ordinated and tactically focused approach to road policing targeting the key contributing factors to road trauma: speed, alcohol and drug impairment, driver distraction, fatigue and seatbelts. “Drivers are requested to plan their trip, be patient and ensure that they take at least a 15-minute break every two hours and not to drive if tired,” says Sergeant Wallace. “Drivers planning to travel during this period can expect to see an increase in vehicles on our major freeways and highways throughout the state. “Road trauma isn’t just about the people who die – it’s about the enormous impact on the community from the family members, to the emergency services workers who have to deal with these tragedies on a daily basis, and the police who have to deliver the devastating news to loved ones. “All of the community has a responsibility and a role to play in reducing road trauma.” RoadSafe Westgate community road safety council chair Jim Giddings says it has been demonstrated time after time that speed is a contributing factor in most road crashes. “Speeding affects both the risk of a crash happening and the severity of injuries sustained when a crash does happen,” Mr Giddings states.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds a star achiever in Sunshine There are – I believe – three places serving the food of Afghanistan in Sunshine. Amid the (mostly) Vietnamese hubub around Sunshine central and Hampshire Road, they are easy to miss – and Afghan Star is perhaps the most anonymous of them. It looks, from the outside and inside both, like a humdrum takeaway joint of non-specific origins. You can get a pizza here – with pineapple, if that’s your kind of thing. The decor is utilitarian. But after sporadic visits over the recent couple of years, I reckon it’s time for a CTS story. Because I really do like this place. And if the review visit – with Bennie Weir and Nat Stockley in tow – doesn’t quite reach the heights of my previous (solo) visits, I nevertheless remain enamoured of Afghan Star. Here is less proper restaurant routine and more a place to grab some quick and very cheap Afghan food. There’s a range of stews/curries called qorma. I’ve tried a couple of them; they’re good. But really, the top action here is all about grilled meats. Though the flatbread is stupendously wonderful – it’s hot, freshly made and enormous. On each and every visit I have made to Afghan Star, I have taken at least half one of these home with me. And if I order charcoal chicken, I end up

Because a whole, excellent chook – with flatbread, some salady bits/pieces and a minty dipping sauce with a subtle yet important chilli kick – costs $14.99. The chicken is very, very good, best and most juicy/succulent on the bone, though inevitably a bit dry in the heart of the breast. That’s what the minty sauce is for. It’s a fine thing that there’s plenty of my chicken to go around, because Bennie is disappointed with his doner mix kebab platter ($10). For starters, he doesn’t believe it accurately reflects the colour photo at the serving counter upon which he’s based his selection. It’s OK – but amounts to HSP on a plate. Much better – and returning to the heart of the Afghan Star matter – is Nat’s mix kebab platter, another $14.99 steal served on rice and with the same flatbread, salad and sauce. The tikka/shish lamb meat is very tasty, though a tad on the dry/tough side. Just a tad … The kobida/kofta minced lamb meat is much better – chewy and nicely (mildly) seasoned.

Here Tasmanian oak cabinets have plenty of storage, while stainless-steel appliances accent the clean, glossy lines. The living zone has a glass sliding door to an undercover pergola with a brick barbecue station, while the triple garage has a secure door to the side yard. There is a central bathroom with sparkling tiles and plenty of light, and nearby two bedrooms have built-in robes. The main bedroom has a large en suite and walk-in robe and is close to a study nook. Along with heating and a split-system, other conveniences include the close proximity to Werribee’s food and shopping precinct, railway station and schools.

Making life easy, this three-bedroom house, sits a kilometre from Wyndham Vale station and close to schools and parks. A low-maintenance front yard leads up to a pleasing facade of chocolate-coloured brick and a timber door. Ceramic tiles are atop the floors in the living areas, including a sunny kitchen with a snappy steel grey colour palette. Arranged near a family room and meals space, it also has a gas cooktop, glass splashback and a breakfast island. Close by, a main bathroom is shared among two carpeted bedrooms with built-in robes, while the front-facing main bedroom has walk-in robe and an en suite. There’s a paved area for entertaining and established garden beds and plant boxes. There’s also a double garage and ducted heating and cooling.

Property of the week

WERRibEE SouTH 20 Jetty Road, 3030 Barry Plant Werribee: 9731 8888

Price: $749,000 – $779,000

In the heart of vibrant Wyndham Harbour, this smart Urbanedge Homes-built residence suits its seaside locale in both the prevailing architecture of the neighbourhood and the relaxed lifestyle on offer. Easy upkeep floor planks are laid along the entry hall and into the living hub, rollerblinds dress most windows and carpet is grey. The street-facing open lounge room has that carpet, as well as a fab picture window beaming in light and framing a green garden outlook. This is the space for

adults to retreat to for a drink after, say, a barbecue with friends while the kids play upstairs in the carpeted living room. The living domain is bound to be the busiest, so the family-friendly layout here means there’s plenty of room in which to spread out – the kids could set up a Lego city and there’d still be room to move. The family-sized kitchen has a stone-topped island breakfast bench for four, lovely deep pot drawers, glass splashback, a dishwasher and Smeg 900mm cooker – as well as a walk-through pantry to the laundry.

A Victorian ash staircase rises to the generous aforementioned living room, around which are ranged the four fitted bedrooms, along with the main bathroom with enclosed toilet. The vast main bedroom, with a wall of glass dressed in flowing grey drapes, has a walk-in robe and an en suite with dual basins, twin shower and enclosed toilet. The room opens to a front balcony, with solid half-walls providing a good measure of privacy. A large glass slider introduces the integrated alfresco area, with boards

extending to the side fence and down the back. The backyard has thriving lawn and fences are screened by hedging. The property has ducted heating and split-systems, a powder room and irrigation system, as well as a drive-through double garage with internal access via the hallway. The Wyndham Harbour locale is growing in prestige and promises a bayside lifestyle within a comfortable walk of the boardwalk, waterfront bike track, sandy Northern Beach and popular marina.

SPORT Young trio a boost for Western United’s A-League goals Western United has swooped on three talented under-25 players for its inaugural season in the A-League, starting later this year. United has added speedy winger Connor Pain, central midfielder Josh Cavallo and central defender Jonathan Aspropotamitis for its first foray into the A-League. Pain is a familiar figure to Victorian soccer followers. The 25-year-old got his start in the Football Federation Victoria ranks with Malvern City and Bentleigh Greens. After impressing in his time with the Greens, Pain was called up for Melbourne Victory, where he played 53 games and scored three goals. Since departing the Victory in 2016 in a swap deal with Mitch Austin, Pain has played 70 games in a struggling Central Coast Mariners side, scoring 10 goals.

Despite being born in Hong Kong, Pain played for Australia’s under-20 and under-23 teams and one game for the Socceroos in 2013. Western United assistant coach John Hutchinson said Pain’s A-League experience would be invaluable. “We are very happy to secure Connor Pain,” he said. “Here is a young player that already has accumulated over 120 first team appearances and we believe he offers our new team a lot of options with his pace and ability out wide.” Aspropotamitis has also been brought into Western United from the Central Coast Mariners. He has shown promising signs at the Mariners in defence this season and has not yet reached his ceiling. The 22-year-old’s first stint in the A-League was with Western Sydney Wanderers, where he played 43 games.

“We have a young central defender that has played over 50 first team games at two A-League clubs,” Hutchinson said. “We can really see him developing into one of the key defensive positions in our team for many seasons to come.” The youngest of the incoming trio is Cavallo. The 19-year-old was a key playmaker for Melbourne City in the youth league last year, leading to selection for the Young Socceroos squad at the Asian Football Confederation under-19 championship qualifiers. “He is another bright star on the Australian football scene and this is a great signing for us,” Hutchinson said. “Those who follow Josh will know he is an industrious midfielder that has a great eye for scoring spectacular goals. “Our fans are going to love him.” Lance Jenkinson

Tigers thrive in top test By Lance Jenkinson Werribee Districts has conquered one of the toughest away venues in the Western Region Football League division 1. The Tigers came back from 10 points down at three-quarter time to pip last season’s minor premiers, Altona, by a point in a thriller at JK Grant Reserve on Saturday. Tigers’ coach Chris Gilham lauded his team’s willingness to scrap for the four points. “To get away with a win in a tight one was fantastic,” he said. “We knew it was going to be a big game and a tough challenge to see where we’re at after a pretty easy round one win. “It doesn’t come much harder than Altona at Altona, so to get the points, we’re rapt.” Werribee Districts had a soft opening to the season with a 188-point win over a struggling Albion. So the Tigers were eager to see how they stood up against a premiership contender. “Altona is going to be right there at the end of the year, they’re a first class team and it was a good quality game, so to finish on the right side of it was pleasing,” Gilham said. There is a freshness about Werribee Districts this season. The Tigers had a strong recruiting campaign, bringing in some talented youth to ease the workload on veterans who have gone above and beyond in recent years. A noticeable shift in the Tigers’ thinking could be found late in the Altona game, when Gilham turned to his youngsters. “The pleasing part in the last 10 to 15 minutes was that we put all our young kids on the ball,” Gilham said. “Bailey Siwek, Connor Thar and Gavin Donnon were exceptional in the last parts of the quarter on ball. We really trusted those blokes in that stage and they did a great job. “We can’t have the same three or four in there all year getting battered around. You’ve got to share the load and trust those young fellas can do a job.” Siwek was the one who stepped up when the game was on the line. All the better that Siwek is a homegrown talent. “He was a clear standout for us on the ball,” Gilham said. “He had a great game.” Rhyce Prismall had the enormous task of curtailing Altona prime mover Steven Kennedy and did a stellar job. “He’s one of our more mature blokes and now playing assistant coach,” Gilham said. “He had a tagging role and did a brilliant job.” Andrew Panayi was back to his dangerous best with three goals. “He’s a quality player and he’s always going to hit the scoreboard,” Gilham said.

“In a low-scoring game, to kick three was a handy contribution.” Werribee Districts’ next test will be an Anzac Day blockbuster against Hoppers Crossing at Soldiers Reserve. Elsewhere in division 1, Hoppers Crossing pinched a one-point win at the death over St Albans. With about one minute to go, Brandon Houlihan showed nerves of steel to slot a set-shot goal to give the Warriors their first win of the season.

Point Cook made progress, yet still copped a 50-point loss to Caroline Springs. In division 2, Wyndhamvale overcame Manor Lakes by 28 points. Point Cook Centrals put up a fight against Yarraville Seddon before going down by six points. In division 3, Glen Orden continued its super start with a 47-point thrashing of Albanvale on the road. Tarneit was a 39-point winner over Laverton and Wyndham Suns went down by 36 points to Braybrook.

Point Cook Centrals has opened its Western Region Football League senior women’s campaign with a 32-point win over Yarraville Seddon on the road at the Yarraville Oval on Saturday. The Sharks were consistent across the four quarters, keeping the Eagles at an arm’s length all game for a 5.1 (31)-9.9 (63) win. Jamie Nankiville played a starring role for the Sharks with four goals. Jenna-Bree Andrusiak, Ebony Watkins and Brianna Yelland were named among the best for the Sharks. Werribee Centrals also made a winning start to the season. Centrals were far too strong for North Sunshine at Dempster Park, running out 58-point victors. Chloe Musgrove capped a best-afield display for Centrals with four goals, while Stacey Kaa chipped in with three. Manor Lakes kicked off its premiership defence with a 58-point win over Wyndhamvale. Point Cook was no match for last year’s finalist Caroline Springs. Tarneit was edged out by Laverton by three points in a low scoring scrap that saw both sides kick two goals apiece.

Reds snare the points in a game of many penalties Hoppers Crossing held its nerve from the penalty spot to record a memorable 2-1 road win over Western Suburbs in Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 2 at Ralph Reserve on Saturday. In a game that featured four penalties, two for each side, plus one re-take, the Reds had to be perfect from the spot to come away with all three points. The stars for the Reds were striker Jason Hayne, who scored both of their penalties, and goalkeeper Washington Bgoni, who crucially saved a penalty. Reds’ coach Shaun Barbara said it was strange to have so many penalties, but neither side was disadvantaged by it. “Washington saved the first penalty, which kept it at 0-0,” Barbara said. “The second half we scored two penalties to go 2-0 up and then they scored a penalty with about 10 minutes to go. That got their tails up a little bit, but we were able to deal with what they threw at us.

It was a much-needed win for Hoppers Crossing. The Reds had picked up just a point from their previous two games, despite producing some quality play. “We were unlucky not to get anything out of the Fitzroy City game last week,” Barbara said. “We probably deserved to win if I’m being honest and I don’t think too many people would disagree. “We’ve still got things to work on, but to be not playing badly and picking up some points away from home was definitely a good result.” The Reds were made to fight all the way to secure all three points against a Western Suburbs side without a point in four matches. “It was actually a pretty tight game,” Barbara said. “You’ve got to give credit where it’s due – although they haven’t picked up a point yet from four games, they’re not a bad side. “We were certainly good in the first half, a little bit patchy in the second half … we expected them to come at us a little bit more.

“We just stuck to our own game plan … we were able to do that and forced two penalties.” Brian Chesson and Dane Garbett were nigh on impenetrable in the Hoppers Crossing defence. With Ryan Murray playing his first game in two months in defensive midfield after injury, the Reds had real steel to their back half. Murray played a crucial role both ways in a midfield partnership with Scott Robson. Hoppers Crossing has moved up to fifth on the ladder with seven points from four games. With Easter weekend designated for FFA Cup action, the Reds will have the weekend off and begin preparation for their round-five encounter with Mill Park on April 27. “We’ve had a long pre-season and a lot of guys have dedicated a lot of time away from their families,” Barbara said. “So they can have a weekend where they give a bit back and spend a bit of time with their families.” Lance Jenkinson

By Lance Jenkinson Point Cook was in desperate need of a little reassurance in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 3. All signs were pointing up for the Jets over the summer as they impressed in the FFA Cup and had a positive pre-season campaign, but that form totally eluded them in a scratchy opening three rounds of the season, which yielded just one point and many more question marks. A thumping 4-1 win over Craigieburn City in the fourth round at Aston Fields on Saturday was just the tonic the Reds needed. Jets’ coach Craig Filer admitted that pressure was starting to mount during the slow start. “It’s been very frustrating for everybody, not just me and the coaches, but the players as well,” he said. “We had a really good positive pre-season, got into the fourth round of the FFA Cup and we were all singing from the same hymn sheet, but then the first game came we froze [a 3-1 loss to Upfield]. “We held Western Eagles to a nil-all draw, but played poorly there, then we were poor at Williamstown [losing 3-0] last Saturday. “We needed that three points for everybody around the club.” While there might have been panic from some sections of the club, Filer maintained faith in the processes that were bedded in. There was no obvious change that could be made and his players could work no harder than they already were. “We haven’t done anything different,” he said. “We’ve had to work hard as a group to keep the confidence up and keep it high. “As I said to them in the changerooms, they just got back to playing the football that I know they can play.” One noticeable difference to the make-up of Point Cook was the return of dynamic attacking player Chris Sutera. Sutera provides an X-factor for the Jets that has proven to be irreplaceable in the early rounds. “We were missing that dynamic person on the pitch who can create something and Chris does that,” Filer said. “All of a sudden we have a midfield and a back four that got us through the pre-season and got us through the FFA Cup games.” Sutera was one of Point Cook’s four goalscorers in the thrashing of Craigieburn City. Tinashe Mapindu, Jonathan Dunn and Zac Osborne also found the back of the net. Filer was reluctant to pick out one or two individuals for praise. “We didn’t have one passenger,” he said. “It was a collective display from one to 11 and the boys who came off the substitutes bench worked hard.” 46 WYNDHAM STAR WEEKLY \ APRIL 17, 2019

Soccer

Werribee City had to be content with a 1-1 draw with St Albans Saints in the top-of-the-table NPL 2 west clash at Galvin Park on Saturday. The defences of both teams reigned supreme for the best part of 89 minutes until a Hodor brothers-inspired late flurry of goals. Adam Hodor put St Albans in front approaching stoppage time with a superb shot from outside the box. Shaun Hodor, who plays for Werribee City, proceeded to find an equalising goal for his side with similar long-range effort.

Netball

City West Falcons went toe-to-toe with Geelong Cougars for the first time since they met in last year’s Victorian Netball League championship grand final. The Falcons won a tight, tense battle on that occasion and history repeated on Wednesday night with the Falcons emerging with a 62-56 win in a similarly hard-fought encounter at the State Netball and Hockey Centre. Falcons goal shooter Jane Cook showed her excellence in the attacking circle again with 60 goals from 72 attempts. In GDFL netball, Werribee Centrals made it back-to-back wins by beating Thomson 51-39.

Point Cook’s attention will turn to the FFA Cup on Saturday, where it will square off with Doveton at Waratah Reserve. In other results, Truganina Hornets suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Melbourne City in men’s state league 4. Wyndham United produced its most competitive performance so far, losing 3-1 to Keilor Wolves in men’s state league 5.

United was -17 and without a goal in its previous three matches. West Point was narrowly beaten 1-0 by high flying Ballarat. Hoppers Crossing had a day to forget in women’s state league 1, losing 3-0 to Melbourne University. In women’s state league 4, Point Cook lost 2-0 to Avondale and West Point was hammered 4-0 by Castlemaine Goldfields.

Werribee Centrals are still looking for its first win of the Geelong and District Football League Smiths Holden Cup campaign after two rounds. The Centurions were totally out-played in a 46-point loss to Thomson at Thomson Recreation Reserve. In Victorian Amateur Football Association division 4, Westbourne Grammarians went down by 76 points to Manningham Cobras.
