Farm rates respite proposed BY CATHERINE WATSON FARMERS in the urban growth zone would have the bulk of their rates bill deferred under a plan proposed by a Casey councillor. Cr Geoff Ablett said rate bills of up to $85,000 were driving Casey’s market gardeners, beef farmers and horse trainers off the land. At last week’s council meeting, he proposed that the council charge genuine farmers a multiple of the average residential rate bill. If the average rate was $1500, he said, farm rate bills might be capped at $10,000, with payment of the balance, plus interest, deferred until the land was sold. ‘‘If they have a 20-hectare property and sold it for $400,000-$500,000 a hectare to a developer, even if they owed the council $300,000 for rates, they’ve still got $7-$8 million to spend.’’ Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell has stated

that councils can impose a lower differential rate on farms outside the UGB but rising rates inside the UGB were a result of market forces and councils should not intervene to artificially lower them. Cr Ablett said he had visited about a dozen farms to get a consensus view on ways to keep people farming. ‘‘They do want to be in the UGB. Some have sold to developers, some want to sell in the future. ‘‘But for farmers it’s a nightmare trying to find $50,000 to pay a rates bill. ‘‘It’s in our own interest to allow them to leave at a time of their own choosing and to keep them farming as long as possible.’’ Councillors voted to investigate his proposal. Officers will report back on the average rate payment across all properties in Casey and how the interest on outstanding rates is calculated under the Local Government Act.

Farmers pay the price as land values soar in the growth areas LONG-time Cranbourne horse trainer Ray McMahon welcomes Cr Geoff Ablett’s proposal to allow farmers inside the urban growth boundary to defer their rates until they sell up. Mr McMahon faced a $15,000 rates bill after the council rezoned his 15-hectare property in Thompsons Road, opposite the new Marriott Waters shopping centre, from rural to industrial. He said that when he approached someone at the council about the rise, ‘‘he virtually told me to sell up or go and get a loan’’. Instead, Mr McMahon diversified into cattle to try to raise the money. ‘‘Every year you have to make enough money to pay the rates, then you have to try to make a

living. It’s just too hard.’’ He said an elderly neighbour on a two-hectare block was struggling to pay a $5000 rates bill out of her pension. ‘‘She’ll probably have to sell.’’ Across the suburb, in Berwick-Clyde Road, beef farmer Peter White faces an $85,000 rates bill for his 80-hectare farm, which is included in the UGB. With housing estates rapidly approaching from the east and west, Mr White’s property is worth between $30 million and $40 million but he really just wants to keep farming it. He points out the heritage-listed driveway and the grand old house.

‘‘We’ve got a beautiful place and we just want to stay here.’’ Like Cr Ablett, he believes farm rates should be capped at a maximum multiple of the farm rate. ‘‘The average rate is about $1200 and we’re paying about 70 times that.’’ Mr McMahon, who has owned his property for more than 45 years, said most properties were overvalued. ‘‘The valuations are based on the boom times and the boom times are gone. Last year a developer offered me what the land was worth about 15 years ago. The prices are back to rural values.’’

VicRoads says some graffiti ‘OK’

Trial hoon op gains traction

IT’S not obscene, it’s not racist, but is it offensive? That’s the question posed by Casey deputy mayor Sam Aziz about tags spray-painted on the Narre Warren overpass. Last month, Cr Aziz complained about the graffiti and asked council officers to contact VicRoads to arrange for it to be removed. At last week’s council meeting, he said he was shocked to learn the authority had responded that its policy was not to remove graffiti unless it was racist or obscene. ‘‘This is a strange bar to set in a city that has a zerotolerance approach to graffiti and a policy of going out and removing it.’’ He said graffiti was offensive — and illegal — whether it was racist or not. ‘‘It undermines the strong anti-graffiti policy we’ve instituted in our city.’’ Cr Wayne Smith said the authority was using an excuse. ‘‘The City of Casey has proved that if you remove graffiti efficiently and quickly it stays away. Graffiti is not public art. It is, quite simply, illegal.’’ Taggers have been busy in the city. They also struck soon after a fence was erected on the South Gippsland Highway, Lynbrook. Councillors agreed to write to the state government urging it to pursue a program of removing graffiti from state-owned property.

POLICE intelligence has seemingly beaten hoon brawn in Melbourne’s south-east. With the help of its divisional intelligence unit, Dandenong and Casey police have hunted down hoon rallies and turned them into ‘‘car club meets’’ — with impressive results. During the six-week operation, offences dived from a high of 108 on April 24 to zero over the past three weeks. Some drivers are penalised with multiple on-the-spot fines for such offences as defect notices, speeding and unlicensed driving. Several fines can total more than $1000 — plus possible impound fees of at least $800. The model has been formalised into a trial hoon investigation team (HIT) to crack down on dangerous drivers in Casey, Cardinia and Greater Dandenong. The four male organisers of the

illegal rallies were summoned to Dandenong police station to talk to Acting Inspector Steven Wood. ‘‘I told them if someone gets killed the consequences could go back to the organisers,’’ he said. The organisers were aged in their late 20s, combining gainful employment with their ungainful nightlife. Even so, the continual fines were starting to hurt. And so, the organisers and police came to an agreement. ‘‘They ring me and ask, ‘Can 15-20 of us meet in a car park and look at each other’s cars?’,’’ Acting Inspector Steven Wood said. ‘‘It’s turned into a car club meet.’’ In the past year more than two cars a day have been impounded in Casey and Cardinia. Using social media and text messaging, organisers could attract up to 200 cars around Melbourne at an hour’s notice. The divisional intelligence unit worked out the likely meeting spots from social media and

A step towards understanding BY CHAD VAN ESTROP FOR most people, a trip to Fountain Gate shopping centre is seemingly mundane but for Rachel Woolley it is extremely daunting. The Narre Warren mother can never predict how her autistic twins will react in a public place. Sometimes they ‘‘throw themselves on the ground and won’t stand up’’, at other times ‘‘they just run off and I don’t know where they are going’’. Being in public is a ‘‘sensory overload’’ for the nine year olds. ‘‘It’s like Russian roulette you don’t know what you will get. I’ve had them go missing on many occasions,’’ Ms Woolley said. She finds it difficult to understand why her twins, Cooper and Jake, have such an adverse reaction to public places. To ease the challenge, Monash University has launched the Stepping Stones program to help parents understand the behavioural and emotional problems of children with developmental disabilities.

The program includes a series of websites, educational seminars and advice for parents. Professor Bruce Tonge of the Centre for Developmental Psychiatry at Monash University said the program would educate parents of children aged between two and 10 with a developmental disability. ‘‘If parents can understand their child’s disability and guide them it helps the family function both immediately and in the long term.’’ Last week, Professor Tonge launched the My Say survey to better understand the gaps in support for children with a disability. He said the results would help to ‘‘upskill’’ those working in the disability sector. Ms Woolley hopes the program will help her understand the emotions and behaviour of her twins. ‘‘For me the current behavioural analysis programs don’t provide enough insight, I feel like I don’t know enough about my twins’ behaviour.’’

Daily challenge: Rachel Woolley struggles to understand why her twins Cooper and Jake ‘‘melt down’’ in public. Picture: Wayne Hawkins She also hoped the program would shed light on the gaps in respite care. ‘‘It can get quite overwhelming for those who work with young children with developmental disabilities so any sort of assistance

for them would be useful.’’ From late this year parents can access free parenting support for 18 months as a part of the Stepping Stones program. The My Say survey is available at mysay.org.au.

Injured migrant’s compo advice A NIGERIAN-born mother hopes her settlement from the state’s road safety body will raise awareness of crash entitlements for others from migrant backgrounds. The Narre Warren mother of five recently received more than $200,000 from the Transport Accident Commission after she was injured in a motor vehicle accident in 2010. The 55-year-old required surgery on an injured right shoulder and later suffered ligament damage in her left shoulder. The woman said the compensation would help her support her family. “Until the accident I was working two jobs. After the accident I could no longer do that, so this compensation will hopefully make up for that.’’ The woman, who asked not to be named, fears others from migrant backgrounds are missing out on compensation due to a lack of awareness of the TAC scheme. “I worry that there are others like me who will miss out on the money they need because they don’t know how the system works if you are injured in an accident.” Under the scheme anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident can claim medical expenses regardless of who is at fault. — Chad Van Estrop

A space for young BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS WRESTLING with Demons on the football field recently cost Richmond AFL footballer Daniel Jackson a fine, but he tackled a different fight in Dandenong last Monday week. Jackson, with federal Mental Health Minister Mark Butler, helped launch a longawaited headspace mental health centre in central Dandenong. It will provide free help and advice to young people in Melbourne’s south-east for issues such as bullying, depression, anxiety and relationship problems. Jackson said such a friendly and inviting space would be handy for young people — even for himself when he was a budding 17-year-old AFL draftee at Carey Grammar. He remembers silently suffering anxiety, debuting for Richmond while completing his VCE at Carey in 2004. ‘‘The more I kept it to myself the worse it got,’’ he said. ‘‘As an AFL footballer, you have to deal with the high expectations. To have people to support you makes a difference.’’ That difference for him came from his school’s counsellor. ‘‘headspace is trying to change that [mental

FEATURESTORY With National Volunteer Week just past, the Weekly visited a group of volunteers who help young people — and their families — through tough times. LEE OPITZ reports.

Willing helpers filling the void he 2012 World Giving Index shows Australians are the most generous people on Earth. The index, compiled by the Charities Aid Foundation, shows in that year 75 per cent of Australians gave to a good cause, 67 per cent went out of their way to help a stranger and 37 per cent volunteered their time in the service of others. This generosity is reflected in 2011 census figures: about 6700 people in Frankston and more than 3200 on the Mornington Peninsula volunteered their time to a group or organisation. Some of them have lent a hand to OzChild, the longest continuous service to children and families in Victoria since the gold rush era of 1851. The recruitment and training co-ordinator Lisa Jones is responsible for bringing volunteers into the program, trying to hang on to the ones it has got and making sure they are trained. ‘‘We have a big turnover of people. We get a lot of students coming in who tend to commit for 12 months but also have a lot of people who’ve been in the program for a long time. One of them has been matched for five years. “Many are retirees who have finished their careers and are looking for something fulfilling and have more time to give. So as fast as we get people out of the door we are getting them back in, but demand always far exceeds supply.” OzChild provides family support services, foster care, home-based and residential care, disability services, education support and legal advice and representation. Family support programs cover Cardinia Shire, Frankston City and the Mornington Peninsula. Former funeral director Annie, a volunteer whose surname cannot be mentioned for privacy reasons, has been with the program for four years. ‘‘When I retired I wanted to do something where I could help someone less fortunate, helping to guide them through difficult times in their lives. It’s rewarding to be with somebody who gives you their trust. They can talk about things that they know won’t go any further,” she says. For one of Annie’s clients, Susan, that trust is everything. For the first time in her life, the 17-year-old single mother has someone she can rely on. “I had to look after mum when she was sick, and had to be the adult when I was still a kid,’’ Susan says. ‘‘I didn’t have a childhood. I had to look after everyone else and wasn’t looking after myself. The baby was unexpected. I was told I couldn’t have kids. “Annie was already there as mum’s mentor when I fell pregnant. Dad didn’t approve and kicked me out. She was there for me throughout the pregnancy and has always been there for me. She’s helped me so much. I can talk to her about anything, and if I didn’t have her, I’d be lost.” With Annie’s encouragement, Susan has returned to study and is hoping to get a builder’s

Making a difference: Paul enjoys his volunteer work with young people.

‘Anyone can make a good volunteer; as long as you have a kind heart and willing to give your time. Everyone has something to offer one way or another.’ — Paul apprenticeship. “I know now what I want to do.’’ In Cardinia Shire, which has a relatively small population, about a fifth of the residents volunteer their time. Kathryn, 32, is among them. “I was studying psychology and wanted to get practical experience and an understanding of the families I would be working with. I’ve worked with two families since I started 12 months ago,” the OzChild volunteer says. ‘‘You become emotionally involved to an extent, but you have to have boundaries. I have two kids of my own and I think that helps. A lot of families struggle with their kids trying to get them to do stuff, and getting them into routines is really frustrating when they are already emotional because of their circumstances. ‘‘Everything seems so overwhelming and we

can help them to break it down into small bits and put things into place to help them gradually make it better. “It’s great to see them come from a place where they just don’t know what to do, and start to put things back together. It’s a privilege. I have friends involved with other organisations and this is one of the best.’’ While more women volunteer their time, overall men are not far behind. But generally, they are happy to put their hand up to help out at a sports club but they tend to steer clear of welfare organisations such as OzChild. Peninsula resident Paul, 28, is an exception. Like Kathryn, Paul was looking for an organisation where he could put into practice skills he had learned while studying counselling and community services. “I’ve got something to give, so I looked for somewhere I could be of use. I’ve not seen any other guys working in this area, and there are only three guys in my class of 30 looking to work in welfare. But a few of my mates have asked about it [working with OzChild], and I’m hoping they’ll come on board. “Anyone can make a good volunteer; as long as you have a kind heart and willing to give your time. Everyone has something to offer one way

or another. You could be just kicking a football around, or sitting on the beach having a chat. “As a volunteer we see a lot more of the happier side of things. We are there to try to make people smile, and it’s very rewarding. Whereas on the welfare side, they may be coming into a situation that is much more dire. It’s very rewarding.” Since October, Paul has been matched with three teenage boys; two from separate families who needed support through sudden changes in their family circumstance, and a third younger boy who has had a more permanent relationship with his mentor. “A little bit of time can make a big difference in their day,” he says. Volunteers do not require any specific qualifications or experience to join the program. They must be aged 18 or over and prepared to commit to two-four hours each fortnight for a minimum of 12 months, depending on family needs. Ms Jones said the support offered depended on specific needs of the family. This may include providing parenting strategies and emotional support, companionship, mentoring, outings, helping to develop household routines and linking into the wider community and support networks. To find out more about volunteering for Oz Child, call 8796 0000.

INBRIEF Guilty plea over death A Pakenham man who killed his mate in a crash was warned by others of the risks he was taking on the morning he lost control of a ute, a court heard. Police said that at 5.40am on January 15 last year Booth lost control of the ute at 151km/h and crashed into a concrete power pole in McGregor Road, killing his friend, Lee Davy, 19. Booth pleaded guilty to one charge of culpable driving causing death. Prosecutor Andrew Tinney told the court Booth recorded a blood alcohol level of 0.12 two hours after the crash. The court heard Booth was deeply remorseful over his friend’s death, wrote a letter of apology to Mr Davy’s parents and insisted on attending the funeral. Judge Christopher Ryan remanded Booth in custody to be sentenced next Monday.

Ash Wednesday memorial An Ash Wednesday memorial will be established at the former Cockatoo kindergarten, the federal government providing $500,000 and Cardinia Shire Council $200,000. Cockatoo bore the full brunt of the Ash Wednesday fires with six lives lost and more than 300 buildings destroyed. Cardinia mayor Brett Owen said he looked forward to working with the local community to create a lasting tribute. ‘‘The former kindergarten is a

place of great local significance, having served as a shelter for residents in the fires, and being an education centre until its closure in 2005.’’

New track a job booster BY CHAD VAN ESTROP A $9 million synthetic track will be the centrepiece of Pakenham Racing Club’s new home at Tynong. The synthetic track, set on the inside of the 2400-metre grass track, is expected to host 16 race meetings after its completion in early 2015. Funding for the track will be divided between Pakenham Racing Club ($4.5 million) and Racing Victoria ($1.5 million). The state government will contribute $3 million from a pool of unclaimed racing dividends. Premier Denis Napthine said the synthetic track, the second in the state and the first new track built in Victoria in 40 years, was a significant investment and an incentive for trainers to be based at Tynong. ‘‘The synthetic track will be an important part of our racing future, particularly when meetings need to be transferred,’’ he said. Wet and muddy conditions won’t stop racing during the winter months on the 2000-metre track. Dr Napthine described the $60 million Tynong facility as ‘‘a visionary project’’ that would deliver ‘‘hundreds’’ of jobs . ‘‘This new

On course: Denis Napthine described the Pakenham Racing Club’s new Tynong facility as a ‘‘visionary project’’. Picture: Chad Van Estrop. synthetic track will be the catalyst for this development to become home to a major training and racing industry, delivering new and ongoing jobs.’’ It is believed up to 40 race meetings will be held at the course when fully operational in 2014-15.

TIMEOUT ●

Ready to connect BY CHAD VAN ESTROP aul Thorn’s mentors come from polar opposites. Thorn’s father, a Pentecostal minister in America’s deep south, and his uncle, a former pimp, are the driving forces behind his music career. ‘‘I was a young disciple to pimps and preachers,’’ Thorn exalts in one of his songs. The 48-year-old singer and songwriter, who will perform at the Hallam Hotel next month, said his father’s affinity with preaching taught him how to engage an audience. ‘‘Part of being a minister is that you have keep a crowd entertained and engage them with your words. That’s what I try to do,’’ he said. ‘‘When I go out on stage I want the crowd to feel like we are having a collaboration.’’ Growing up in Tupelo, Mississippi — the birthplace of Elvis Presley — Thorn said he ‘‘cut my teeth’’ listening to gospel music. ‘‘Even though I sing secular music there’s still a thread of gospel music that runs through everything I do.’’

P

Thorn said his uncle taught him how to connect with others. ‘‘He really taught me to take the time to listen to people and understand what they are going through.’’ Now, Thorn tries to incorporate his uncle’s teachings into his shows. ‘‘All people want when they go to a show is to feel like someone cares about them, and the artist on the stage wants to connect them.” Thorn also credits his uncle with teaching him “street smarts” having coached him during his professional boxing career. Thorn retired from boxing after a record of 14 wins and four losses, saying ‘‘I had taken my career as far as it could have possibly gone’’. Now, Thorn says he is trying to do the same with his music by touring Melbourne next month. ‘‘I want to come out to take my music to a different type of people. ‘‘I really feel I will be able to connect with the Australians.’’ Thorn’s eclectic style is a mix of blues and rock — punchy riffs, melodies with roots in America’s south and lyrics that reflect life experiences.

Heartfelt tunes: Paul Thorn performs at the Hallam Hotel next month. Songs range from the candid I guess I’ll just stay married to the spiritual He touched me. Thorn begun his professional singing career in 1997 and has released 10 albums. His fifth album Pimps and Preachers has been topping the American charts for three weeks and

breaking into the Billboard top 100. “I just try to put out a quality product so my fans will hit the repeat button instead of eject.” Paul Thorn will perform at the Hallam Hotel on June 25 at 8pm.

Returning star leads Cavaliers to big win BY MORGAN COLE CASEY Cavaliers welcomed the return of young gun Renae Mokrzycki from America with a comprehensive victory over Blackburn in their Big V division 2 women’s match at Cranbourne Basketball Stadium on Saturday night. The Cavaliers’ championship odds took a huge leap forward with the return of the star, who topscored with 13 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in 18 minutes on court. Coach Mark Holman was thrilled with the return of last season’s league MVP, who helped

his side physically outmatch the young Vikings outfit. ‘‘Mocky [Mokrzycki] was fantastic,’’ Holman said. ‘‘She led the way on scoring and rebounding. She adds a lot to our team. ‘‘She is a Casey junior so she loves the club, just wants us to be successful.’’ The Cavaliers’ win never looked in doubt as they bullied Blackburn all over the court forcing them to take ill-advised shots as the Cavaliers went on to win 68-42. The college star may have been the main attraction but Holman didn’t shy away from

how impressive his side has been, holding a win record of 8-4. ‘‘We always knew she was coming back but we have focused this year on spreading things around,’’ Holman said. ‘‘We don’t rely on one or two players and becoming too one-dimensional.’’ A powerful final quarter by the Casey Cavaliers has secured their second straight win, 66-47 over Shepparton, in their Big V division 2 men’s match at Cranbourne Stadium on Saturday night. The Cavaliers have put their season back on track with wins over Western Port and the

Gators, the brakes put on a four-game skid. Casey looked sluggish in the first period, with the Gators busy from beyond the arc, draining three triples to give them an early edge. Shepparton began to lose control in the the third period, shooting just 23 per cent from the field as the Cavaliers turned up the heat on the defensive end. The Cavaliers broke the game wide open in the final period, knocking down 24 points to four. Dean Johnson led the way for Casey pulling down nine rebounds and shooting a modest 12 points, while Josh Lemi added 11.

Scorpions overcome Cats’ late surge CASEY Scorpions suffered a late scare in their 13-point VFL win over Geelong at Simonds Stadium on Sunday. An 11-goal-to-three third quarter was the catalyst for the victory over the Cats who dropped their second game for the season. The Scorpions’ third term onslaught brought back memories of Geelong’s performance in round 18 2011 when it booted 10 goals in the opening term, before marching to a 128-point win. But the Cats proved they are made of stern stuff to fight the game out strongly and lose 16.11 (107) to 18.12 (120). The Scorpions began slowly and were unable to kick their first major until the second term after a six-behind opening quarter. Boom youngster Jesse Hogan began to lift and finished the match with a five-goal haul and working cohesively with Jack Fitzpatrick, who also booted five goals. Despite the Scorpions leading by 37 point going into the final term, the Cats stormed back to get within five points. The Scorpions’ midfield won them the game with David Rodan, Tom Couch and ruckman Jake Spencer winning a mountain of possessions. The victory moves the Scorpions to fifth on the VFL ladder with 20 points, two points behind Port Melbourne. Williamstown defeated the Scorpions development team 16.13 (109) to 7.11 (53) in their clash at Burbank Oval on Saturday morning. Aiden Lyndsay and Brayden Fowler were best for the Scorpions. Casey Scorpions clash with Sandringham at Trevor Barker Beach Oval from 2pm on Saturday.

Comets remain top of ladder despite draw CASEY Comets have failed to take maximum points for the first time this FFV State League 3 South East season, drawing 2-2 with Old Scotch at Comets Stadium last Saturday. The Comets remain on top of the ladder despite the draw and are the competition’s only undefeated team. Stan Webster’s troops dominated the opening half, but missed chances meant only a 1-0 lead at half-time.

Simon Webster took a long-range shot which forced Old Scotch goalkeeper Daniel Gieshen-White to tip the ball over the bar. Several other chances to Paul Presti and Frank Gibson also went awry or were saved by the brilliant GieshenWhite. The Comets were then up in arms when they didn’t receive a penalty in the box. Eventually, Gibson played a

ball across goal for Marce Janneker who found the back of the net in the 30th minute. Old Scotch had a golden opportunity early in the second half before Robbie Acs made a brilliant save for the Comets. The visitors equalised in the 58th minut, and nine minutes later hit the front when Jason Choi scored their second goal.

The Comets then missed a golden opportunity to Gibson and it looked like they were headed for their first loss of the season. In the 91st minute, Janneker struck a brilliant ball from 30 metres out to level the scores and keep the Comets unbeaten streak alive. The Comets clash with Springvale at Comets Stadium on Saturday at 3pm.

Polanski a derby hope CRANBOURNE-trained Polanski made it two victories in a row at Caulfield, after easily winning the $80,000 The Golden Fleece and Court Jester Plate (1600m) on Saturday . The bargain buy is now likely to be given a rest by trainer Robbie Laing before being set for the group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) in the spring. “Today’s race is about the time of the year that they used to have the Gibson Carmichael Stakes (1600m. Over the past few years I’ve had Subiaso and Scelto run well in that race and then end up in the derby,” Laing said. “In last year’s Gibson Carmichael the horse that ran sixth was Fiveandahalfstar, so horses that can run a mile in the autumn they’re going to be our stayers in the spring.” Laing said Polanski had more ability than his previous derby runners Scelto and Subiaso who finished eighth and ninth in the Victoria Derby. “He’s won two in town in the autumn. Those two horses were never good enough to win in town but ran reasonable races in the derby. “Three weeks ago I would have sounded a dill [aiming at the derby], but he’s won over 1400 and he’s won over a mile. ‘‘If you ran a market on the derby now, Drago would be favourite and he’d [Polanski] be second or third favourite you would think.” Allowed to bowl along in the lead by jockey Dean Yendall, Polanski ($2.50) kicked a length in front at the top of the home straight before appearing in trouble when Celeritas ($9) ranged up on his outside at the 200-metre mark. Responding to the urgings of Yendall, Polanski found plenty under pressure to fight off the challenge and record a 1.3-length victory over Celeritas, with Eagle Island ($3) finishing off well from the tail of the field.

No Rebel yell as Stingrays roll DANDENONG Stingrays moved to third on the TAC Cup ladder with a crushing 53-point win over North Ballarat Rebels at Shepley Oval on Saturday. The Stingrays’ hunger for the contest proved superior to the Rebels as they put the match beyond doubt with a brilliant third quarter. Dandenong Stingrays 13.10 (88) defeated North Ballarat Rebels 5.5 (35). Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats said his team’s second half, when they outscored the Rebels nine goals to two, was a pleasing sign. “Our first half wasn’t that flash. Ballarat really challenged us and wanted it more . . . but the strength of this group was the willingness to refocus and win the one-on-ones and go when it was their turn . . . that pleased me more than the win,” he said. With several Stingrays away with Victorian Country commitments they were forced to blood four new players. Stingrays talent manager Mark Wheeler said the new quartet had positive signs but urged them to keep working hard. “We had four first-game players today whom I thought all did really well. Jayden Tompkins kicked a bag of goals locally a few weeks back and looks like a genuine player, but he and the other three were gasping for air and cramping early. Dandenong Stingrays clash with Calder Cannons at Highgate Recreation Reserve from 11.30am on Saturday.

FINALSCORES

Holt stars in interleague win BY BRAD McGRATH CASEY Cardinia League coach Michael Holland has hailed the performance of Marc Holt in their 12-point interleague win over the Wimmera Football League at Horsham on Saturday. Holland said the Cranbourne star had highlighted why he had been such a dominant player for so long with his strong marking proving the difference between the two teams. Holt kicked four of his seven goals in the third term when the match was on the line, with Wimmera having few answers for the reigning league medallist. “I’ve never seen a guy who can mark like him – he was just brilliant,” Holland said. “The Wimmera coach said to me that they had the strongest defender in the league on him and they just didn’t have any answers.” In a match which the teams’ ranking was not befitting of the standard, the CCL did not have everything their way with the home team kicking 7.0 to 4.2 in the opening term, but by half-time the CCL had clawed their way to a three-point lead. Ahead by four points at the final change, Wim-

mera booted the opening goal of the quarter before the CCL kicked four of the next six to secure victory. After kicking the first goal of the term, Brad Hartigan, who was arguably Wimmera’s best, kicked to Ash Clugston, but the ball bounced too high and went through for a behind, when a goal would have put them eight points ahead. The CCL then kicked two quick goals, the second from Steve O’Bryan, that put the match beyond Wimmera. “It was very good and probably didn’t reflect the rankings of the two leagues,” Holland said. “It ebbed and flowed in the third quarter and then we kicked away a bit in the last and got on top of them a little bit.” Casey Cardinia had several usual suspects at their best with Michael Collins, Justin Berry and Matt Lee prominent in the third term when they began to get on top. Michael Harold and Rohan Hyde were also solid performers for the victors but it was Holt who proved the match-winner. Holland said he believes the Casey Cardinia League is worthy of a much higher ranking than the VCFL awarded it when the MPNFL split its

interleague team into three, one each from the Casey Cardinia, Nepean and Peninsula Leagues. “I don’t think it really indicates the strength of the league,” he said. “I think we’re definitely in the top 10 but we have got a couple more wins to get there yet.” Wimmera proved too strong in the under-18 match, defeating Casey Cardinia 9.13 (67) to 6.12 (48) in a match played as a curtain-raiser. Hayden Speirings and Rory Hillard battled valiantly for the CCL but Wimmera’s second quarter, when they booted 3.4 to 1.3, proved to be match-winning.
