CUTS of $30 million at Chisholm TAFE could discourage secondary students, a Casey principal says. Michael Muscat of Kambrya College said keeping his students in school would be more difficult if the range of VET subjects was reduced. ‘‘What these TAFE cuts have done is reduce the options, so the offerings we had before will no longer be available.’’ About 60 per cent of senior students at Kambrya College are doing TAFE subjects as part of their VCE or VCAL certificates, and Mr Muscat suspects the cuts may act as a disincentive to students. He said the school had enjoyed increased retention rates over the past five years, but that would now be jeopardised.

‘‘We try and guide them into a TAFE system. ‘‘Now, potentially, these kids who are hard to engage with at the best of times will not benefit.’’ She said that TAFE could be the bridging gap for people who have had difficulties in the past. ‘‘A lot of mature-aged students will go back and do a diploma because they don’t have much confidence. Three to four years of university is not for everyone.’’ Ms Gort said having locally available TAFE providers was crucial to keeping young people in the system and locally trained people were more likely to contribute to their community. ‘‘It’s hard to recruit people to the outer suburbs. If they go elsewhere for university, they’re going to be attracted to that lifestyle and probably remain there.’’

G5373545AA-dp4Sep

‘‘The fewer courses available, the fewer students will stick around. The level of cuts has been too deep.’’ About 14,000 Casey residents are enrolled in tertiary education, almost half of those attending TAFEs. Chisholm Institute is the only TAFE provider in the region and the main alternative among local education providers. A leaked report, which outlines transition plans from each of the state’s TAFEs predicts Chisholm’s total tuition fees will soar by 70 per cent. Some campuses may also be threatened with closure. Windermere Children and Family Services manager Lisa Gort said the rise in fees would disenfranchise students. ‘‘We work with a lot of youth who have fallen out of the high school system.

CASEY councillor Kevin Bradford will stand for reelection in spite of a councillor conduct panel directing him to take two months’ leave of absence from the council. The panel, set up at the request of the council to consider 18 allegations against him, last week found ‘‘reasonable grounds’’ for a finding of serious misconduct against him on two of the allegations. The finding does not prevent him standing for reelection. With the council now in caretaker mode for the election, the suspension would apply to the next council term if Cr Bradford is re-elected. Cr Bradford told the Weekly the matter had reinforced his determination to stand for re-election. He said he believed the allegations were payback because he raised a motion to terminate the contract of council CEO Mike Tyler. “This whole process has been a calculated and personally motivated attack against me in an attempt to ensure I am removed from the council.’’ He described the panel hearing as a ‘‘kangaroo court’’, with unsworn evidence admitted and the process weighted against him. ‘‘It was a prosecutory hearing without rules of evidence. Witnesses were unsworn. They were able to say whatever they wanted to say as a statutory declaration.’’

CASEY Council has referred a finding of serious misconduct against Cr Kevin Bradford to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The decision follows a hearing by an independent panel, which was appointed by the Municipal Association of Victoria to investigate 18 allegations by the council against Cr Bradford. The two-man panel found there were ‘‘reasonable grounds’’ for the VCAT to make a finding of serious misconduct against Cr Bradford in relation to obtaining and disclosing commercially sensitive information on the Cranbourne GP Run to Leader Newspapers in 2009. When the VCAT considers the matter, it will be the fourth official inquiry into the same events. In 2010, the Ombudsman found Cr Bradford had misused his position. The Local Government Inspectorate later found insufficient evidence for prosecution. The panel, which heard from 30 witnesses over four days in July, also found three additional allegations of misconduct against Cr Bradford proved ‘‘on the balance of probability’’. It did not support 14 others. At last week’s council meeting, councillors voted 6-4 to refer the findings of serious misconduct to the VCAT. Cr Lynette Keleher described the panel hearing as ‘‘a farce and a free-for-all’’.

Referred to VCAT: Kevin Bradford. He said the councillor conduct panel process was supposed to be an informal process with no legal representation and he was shocked when he saw the council had on hand a solicitor who advised Casey mayor Sam Aziz throughout the hearing. He said the hearing must have cost the council well over $50,000, counting the cost of the two panel members and the solicitor. At last week’s council meeting, Cr Aziz defended the council’s decision to have a solicitor present at the hearing. ‘‘It was our choice to have a lawyer involved. . If Cr Bradford had chosen to have a lawyer, he could have.’’ After the meeting Cr Aziz said he was pleased with the outcome of the hearing. ‘‘The council has full confidence in the process.’’

BY PAULINA OLSZANKA THE cost of redeveloping Casey’s level crossings could fall on local businesses and residents under a proposal put forward by an independent panel of Melbourne advisers. A report by the Committee for Melbourne recommends communities that benefit directly from level crossing removal contribute to the development. It stated reduced noise and congestion and improved safety would benefit locals An increase in the value of neighbouring businesses and residences could be a vital funding source for the project — with those profiting from the project paying higher rates. ‘‘When upgrading these locations, there are often opportunities to capture uplifts in property values throughout surrounding areas, and/or increase the possibility of raising funds from those that benefit directly from the upgraded infrastructure,’’ the report states. But Residents, Ratepayers and Friends of Berwick Village president Annette Aldersea said locals were unlikely to accept the funding model.

‘‘I don’t understand why they would benefit more than the thousands of people who [go through level crossings] every day. I think it would come at a horrendous cost to those few individuals.’’ Berwick business owner Henry Phillipz said that even if the level crossing near his Clyde Road store were removed, his business was unlikely to benefit. ‘‘We don’t face the railway and so changes to the crossing probably won’t make much difference to us.’’ VicRoads is already developing the area around the Clyde Road level crossing to ease traffic congestion, but a spokesman said grade separation was not possible because of cost. ‘‘Lowering the rail line would require building a train station and could potentially add up to $150 million to the current $55.6 million project cost’’, project director Charlie Broadhurst said. ‘‘The Clyde Road level crossing has a relatively good safety record and is not prioritised as part of the state government’s $379 million level crossing blitz.’’

It’s the don’t know, don’t care election OPINION

BY PAULINA OLSZANKA and CATHERINE WATSON ELECTIONS for Casey Council will be held next month but it appears few Casey residents know about them and even fewer care. The Weekly asked shoppers at Fountain Gate shopping centre a series of questions last week to gauge the level of awareness and interest. The results might be disconcerting for those contemplating standing in the election. Only one person knew there was an approaching election and no one could name their current councillors. There was also confusion over what local government is actually responsible for. First-time voters Rhiannon Toranto and her friend Lauren Deves said they would vote to get rid of Julia Gillard. Two respondents mentioned crime and public safety concerns as the biggest local issue while another mentioned the need for better public transport in Casey, all issues under state government control. If there was one hopeful aspect of the exercise it was that everyone intended to vote — if only to avoid a $70 fine for not voting. Just under 40,000 registered Casey voters — around 27 per cent — failed to vote at the 2008 election.

1. Do you know who your ward councillor is? 2. Are you aware there is a council election next month? 3. Will you be voting? 4. What are the most important local issues for you?

Carol Macquignaz, Narre Warren North: 1. No. 2. No. 3. Yes. 4. Roads. We tried to get a speed hump in our street and the council knocked it back.

Fred Macquignaz, Narre Warren North: 1. No. 2. No. 3. Is it compulsory? 4. Traffic. Once Myer opens at Fountain Gate, it will be even worse.

Margaret Cooper, Berwick: 1. No. 2. Yes. 3. Yes. 4. Road safety. My husband is a crossing guard and people just speed through the crossing.

Callum Reed, Narre Warren: 1. No. 2. No. 3. Yes. 4. The most serious issue is the crime rate, 16-to-24 year olds keep hitting on old people.

Rhiannon Toranto, Berwick: 1. No. 2. No. 3. Yes. 4. Trains and stuff.

Removable teeth (dentures) full or part, are an artificial body part. They replace lost gum (bone resorption) and teeth, but will never have the same performance as the original. However with the know how of accurate and precision measurements, as well as the use of high quality materials as well as processing techniques, we can get as close as possible. The very closest to regaining stability (particularly lower dentures) is implant technology (implant overdentures).

Our objective is Improving Treatment Outcomes as well as your Health and Quality of Life. Quality service and hygiene are not compromised for price. The ability to cope with dental prosthetic appliances depends on all of the following: 1/ Health in general. 2/ Trauma to mouth/facial area or any current Physio and/ or Chiropractic treatment being undertaken at time. 3/ Recent extractions of natural teeth. 4/ Denture wearing history. 5/ The length of time any existing dentures had been worn. 6/ Health of spine and nervous system. 7/ Age, occupation and diet. 8/ Patients commitment to adapt to changes necessary for improved function. 9/ Level of degenerative joint disease of TMJ 10/ Level of gum resorption 11/ Level of muscle control and ability to adapt 12/ Patient expectation – you now have a false body part that is mobile and removable 13/ Grinding or clenching of teeth – tension in the facial and jaw musculature

o one was going to crash Jude Bolton’s 300th game celebrations on Friday night, least of all Collingwood. The likeable Sydney midfielder led his team to a memorable 26-point win over their arch rival to book a place in Saturday’s grand final against Hawthorn. It will be the club’s third grand final in eight years and its first decider again the brown and gold. Last Friday’s win comes with a portent: by winning the same Friday night game in 2005 they stormed into the grand final to beat West Coast for their first flag as the Sydney Swans. Although they go into this weekend’s contest as underdogs, there’s a sense of confidence about the Swans’ ability to handle pressure and shut down their opponents. Players of the calibre of Josh Kennedy, Ted Richards, Adam Goodes, Bolton, Jarrad McVeigh and Ryan O’Keefe are primed for the big tim and Lewis Jetta provides a spark that ignites many a forward thrust. Bolton was superb in Friday night’s contest which Sydney led throughout. The Swans were 14 points up at quarter-time and seven goals up late in the third quarter before the Magpies began their inevitable charge.

No. 23 The game’s biggest star, Lance Franklin is a nightmare opponent who revels in the one-onones. His short, damaging bursts through the midfield make him almost impossible to match up.

Party time for Bolton and Swans

No. 25 Full-back Ted Richards has taken on a leadership role in the Swans backline and is rarely beaten. He finished third at the club with 107 marks for the season. As in the photo above, he will probably take on ‘Buddy’ Franklin on Saturday.

But, although the margin was reduced to 20 points, the momentum Sydney had generated throughout the game gave it the confidence it needed to withstand the pressure. The Swans backed themselves and held their nerve. There was to be no fade out. The grand final holds no fears for this cohesive unit, eight of whom have played every game and four who have missed only one game. Their familiarity with each other was evident on Friday night when innumerable passages of play — like smooth links in a chain — inevitably led to a Swans’ forward thrust and goal. A sense of desperation helped them scramble to smother many a Collingwood attack, resulting in valuable turnovers. The Swans were an irresistible force with no immovable object in their way. Their only weakness was inaccuracy in front of goal when easy chances — and possible game breakers — were missed. While these gave the Pies hope of an unlikely victory, the force was wearing red and white and it had come to celebrate Bolton’s party. His second was the Swans’ final goal for the night. There was to be no denying a Swans victory.

ho can deny the Hawks the right to be favourites in Saturday’s grand final? They have the stars and the structure to beat Sydney — and the knowledge that they can beat the Swans even after giving them a head start. Who could forget the pair’s round 22 clash in Sydney when the Swans romped away to a 37-point lead, only to have the Hawks reel them in for a seven-point victory. But the Swans can take solace from their win over the Hawks in Tasmania in round five. This Saturday’s clash will be one to remember: the tight-checking Sydney with the game’s most miserly defence, up against a Hawks’ forward line chock full of stars ready to kick match-

oy, that was close! The boys in brown and gold can thank their lucky stars that wayward kicking — and Adelaide’s ability to hang in there — didn’t ruin their preliminary final party. The win paves the way for Saturday’s first Hawthorn versus Sydney grand final at the MCG. It was a fitting finale, but how close it came. The Hawks rode the tide of favouritism into the match courtesy of big late-season wins and the charisma of its forward stars. ‘Buddy’ Franklin, Jarryd Roughead, Sam Mitchell and Brad Sewell lived up to their reputations by mounting waves of forward thrusts which were somehow denied by poor con-

winning scores. The obvious defensive move for the Swans will be curbing ‘Buddy’ Franklin, but it’s their second-stringers that have put teams to the sword this year. Few will forget Jordan Lewis’ five goal haul in the Hawks’ dismantling of Collingwood or Paul Puopolo tearing Port Adelaide apart with five of his own or the majestic Cyril Rioli booting six against St Kilda in May. Focus on Buddy at your own peril. Ignore him at even greater peril. The huge task of manning Franklin is likely to fall to Heath Grundy, with the rugged Swan doing a superb job on Travis Cloke in the preliminary final on Friday night. But if he gets away, all-Australian defender Ted Richards, who is under an injury cloud, is likely to be the back-up. The midfield battle will create plenty of high-

version, and then watched as a gutsy Adelaide fought its way back into the match. Although dominating the inside 50s, the Hawks couldn’t manufacture a winning score, while Adelaide kept posting its own majors to stay in the hunt. It was like the tale of the tortoise and the hare: the plodding Adelaide making up ground here, quenching a Hawk fire front there, but always staying in the frame ready to snatch an unlikely victory. Down by 22 points midway through the third quarter and seemingly out of the contest — as had been preordained by the Hawks’ pre-match favouritism — the

lights with Sam Mitchell, Brad Sewell, Jordan Lewis, Liam Shiels and company to go head to head with Josh Kennedy, Kieran Jack, Daniel Hannebery and Ryan O’Keefe. The Swans swung a surprise on Friday night with dual Brownlow medallist Adam Goodes starting the match in the midfield. It would be an even greater surprise if he doesn’t spend significant time forward on Saturday with the undersized Hawks’ backline to be stretched with talented youngster Sam Reid and Lewis RobertsThompson as strong Swans marking targets. Lewis Jetta has been the barometer for the Swans this year and Alistair Clarkson is likely to give Shane Savage, Matt Suckling or Clinton Young the task on him. Or, he may back his team in and allow his own electric speedster Isaac Smith to take the talented Swan.

The Hawks celebrate their win against the Swans last time they met. In the centre is captain Luke Hodge who will lead them into battle on Saturday. Crows hit the lead with minutes to go when Taylor Walker converted a set shot and the unthinkable was staring the Hawks in the face. But,

as the Hawks rallied to snuff out the late charge, the dourness surfaced and the team of brown and gold held on for a heart-stopping victory.

FEATURESTORY

Public transport stop-start FASTLANE At peak hour, Monash and Eastern freeways slow to a crawl and passengers cram into overcrowded trains. But is there an easy, quick and affordable fix? CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS asked transport experts and stakeholders how to get our transport system back on track. hatever your mode of travel, road or rail, there’s a high level of frustration in east and south-east Melbourne. Angelo D’Amelio of Beaconsfield knows the stop-start grind of weekday commuting by car. In peak time, a 30-kilometre trip along the Monash Freeway to Hawthorn takes on average 50 minutes. On a bad day, that can stretch to well over an hour. At morning peak times, the average traffic speed is 55km/h. On the Eastern Freeway, the morning peak traffic slows to 51 km/h — about half the speed limit. ‘‘It gets a bit wearying after a long day at work,’’ Mr D’Amelio says. He was so sick of the commute, he organised a petition for the state government to widen an M1 bottleneck east of Belgrave-Hallam Road. It wasn’t difficult to enlist the 1600 frustrated signatories, nor to get the backing of Casey and Cardinia councils last year. But there is no indication that VicRoads will extend its $1.39 billion project — which added lanes to sections of the M1 — to clear the bottleneck. Many public transport advocates, including RMIT transport planning senior lecturer Paul Mees, argue building major roads isn’t the answer. The massive M1 spend was money wasted, he says. ‘‘It will be full again within 12-18 months. People have to realise those ideas aren’t going to work. ‘‘Once a city gets beyond a certain size, you can’t just transport by car. There’s not enough space.’’ But Mr D’Amelio says many in the outer suburbs don’t have a choice. ‘‘It’s fine to use public transport if you work within a 10-kilometre radius of the CBD because you’ve got a tram system to utilise or you’ve got a train station near your work. In the outer suburbs if you want to use childcare facilities and do drop-offs to school and then go off to work, public transport is no good to you. There’s a good reason why cars are on the road. It’s because people need them.’’ Many public transport advocates say the system is let down by gaping holes in the bus network.

W

Seeking answers: Angelo D’Amelio organised a petition for the state government to widen the freeway bottleneck. Samantha Dunn, who chairs the Eastern Transport Coalition, says public transport is ‘‘so inadequate that many residents either don’t have a public transport option within a reasonable distance from their homes, or the option — usually a bus service — is so inefficient it ceases to be a real option at all’’. Regional Development Australia’s regional plan for Melbourne stated inadequate public transport was Melbourne east’s ‘‘most significant challenge’’. Yet Dr Mees says decent bus services ought to be ‘‘the easiest thing of all to fix’’. He says frequent bus links, co-ordinated with the rail timetable, will declog overcrowded car parks at rail stations. Cr Dunn calls for more bus transit lanes and traffic light priority to make bus trips ‘‘more competitive’’ with car travel. Dr Mees questions why governments are intent on costlier projects such as the multibillion-dollar eastwest link. The state government has spent $15 million on planning for the 18-kilometre east-west road between Eastern Freeway and Western Ring Road. It includes a tunnel between CityLink and Eastern Freeway. Dr Mees calls the project the ‘‘craziest, kookiest idea ever’’. Opposition roads spokesman Luke

Donnellan says the government is ‘‘selling the eastern suburbs a dud’’. “More than 70 per cent of traffic coming off the Eastern Freeway travels along Hoddle Street through to the city and southern suburbs,’’ Mr Donnellan says. ‘‘Congestion will never improve without a major treatment of Hoddle Street and further improvements in public transport.’’ RACV’s public policy general manager Brian Negus, who backs the link, says an improved treatment of the Hoddle Street and Alexandra Parade interchange and improved bus services for north-east Melbourne have to be ‘‘part of the package’’. He says the tunnel would take about 40 per cent of the traffic that is headed to the north and west. ‘‘The amount of congestion would reduce quite dramatically.’’ Dr Mees also condemns the government’s mooted nine-kilometre rail tunnel from South Yarra to Kensington South via the CBD. The government has assigned $49.7 million for planning the project. The extra tracks through the tunnel won’t translate to extra services into the south-east through South Yarra, Dr Mees says. ‘‘It’s not needed, especially for the Frankston and Dandenong lines. There are still the same number of tracks between South Yarra

Picture: Lucy Di Paolo

and Caulfield so it doesn’t increase the number of trains you can run [into the south-east].’’ Mr Negus says the tunnel has to be considered along with extra tracks on the Dandenong rail corridor. ‘‘Paul Mees has got it wrong. You will need extra tracks and to gradeseparate cross-roads so boom gates aren’t shut for 40 minutes in the hour. That will allow more train services across the corridor.’’ He says the rail tunnel is the key to unlocking the lack of capacity in the city loop. ‘‘What you need to do is run cross-city services which don’t rely on the underground loop.’’ Dr Mees argues the city loop is running at half capacity due to poor timetabling and organisation. ‘‘In the 1970s, there were 100 trains an hour coming into the city. With the introduction of the city loop, it was said they should be able to run twice as many as that. At the moment there are 108 trains running 8am-9am — the busiest hour of the day. That’s half the capacity.’’ No one argues against the need for more rail services on the BelgraveLilydale, Glen Waverley and Cranbourne-Pakenham corridors. Public Transport Victoria’s May 2012 report stated 40.7 per cent of train passengers in the Dandenong rail

IDEAS to unclog our transport gridlock PAUL MEES RMIT senior lecturer in transport planning ■ Drop big-ticket projects like the eastwest link and the metro rail tunnel. ■ Fix train timetables and build extra lines to Box Hill and Oakleigh and DandenongCranbourne to run more services. ■ Create more bus services to railway stations ■ Grade-separate level crossings in the south-east. SAMANTHA DUNN Eastern Transport Coalition chairwoman ■ Building roads is not a long-term solution. ■ Build rail links to Doncaster and Rowville. ■ More bus services. ■ Triplicate or duplicate Belgrave/Lilydale, and Cranbourne lines. ■ Third track from Caulfield to Dandenong. THANUJA GUNATILLAKE RACV public transport and mobility manager ■ Build east-west road link and Metro rail tunnel. ■ Make the Doncaster Area Rapid Transport bus services more frequent. ■ Upgrade the M1’s Warrigal Road interchange. ■ Lengthen trains and stations, upgrade signals and remove level crossings in Dandenong rail corridor. ■ Duplicate and triplicate the Belgrave line. ■ Upgrade Officer rail station, extend the Cranbourne line to Cranbourne East and Clyde. DANIEL BOWEN Public Transport Users Association president ■ Don’t build new freeways. ■ Build rail link to Doncaster (first step Victoria Park-Bulleen with bus interchange to CBD) and Rowville. ■ More rail services and betterconnecting bus services. ■ Grade separation of level crossings. ■ Duplication of Cranbourne line. ■ Lengthen trains to nine cars. LUKE DONNELLAN and FIONA RICHARDSON State opposition roads and public transport spokespersons ■ No east-west road tunnel. ■ Truck exclusion lanes on Monash Freeway. ■ Increased train and bus services.

corridor were on officially overcrowded trains during peak periods. On the Glen Waverley line, 13.7 per cent of peak-time passengers were on overcrowded trains. On the Ringwood corridor, it was 12.3 per cent. Dr Mees says in the medium term track quadruplication, at least between the CBD-Oakleigh and CBDBox Hill, will be required. ‘‘This would cost in the region of $500 million if done in conjunction with removal of level crossings. ‘‘This is a much more practical option than spending tens of billions of dollars we don’t have on pie-in-thesky road projects that won’t fix the problems anyway.’’ The office of Transport Minister Terry Mulder did not respond to emails and phone calls from the Weekly.

Damon hoping for an ice time away BY ROY WARD A CRANBOURNE youngster is looking to take his talents to North America to further his dream to be a professional ice hockey player. Damon Parolin, 12, is desperate to make the most of his skills as an ice hockey player but after making several Victorian under-age sides, he and his mother Jenny see few opportunities available in Melbourne to help him develop his game. So the Parolins are looking at sending Damon to Canada, the spiritual home of the sport, to attend a boarding school with a dedicated ice hockey training program. The fees for such schools are high — more than $20,000 per year — but the curriculum at these schools includes several hours of ice hockey training each morning followed by school classes from lunchtime until 6pm.

‘It was really awesome, really exciting.’ Damon Parolin A few of his teammates from his junior club, The Flyers, are looking at doing a similar thing. The Parolins had a school in mind for Damon but it fell into financial problems earlier this year so they are now looking at another similar school. Jenny Parolin said a year in such a program would give her son the equivalent of eight or nine years in ‘ice time’ if he was just playing in Melbourne. She said such schools were only available to younger teenagers so Damon would need go in the next 12 months. The youngster said he loved his sport, which he fell into after watching the older brother of one of his friends play ice hockey a few years ago.

“It took me a few months to get used to playing,” he said. “But after having people in my team help me out I got into it.” Parolin plays either centre forward or left wing and was a member of the Victorian under-13 side earlier this year. “It was really awesome, really exciting,” the youngster said. “It was pretty hard to get a feel for the speed, it was faster than I pictured but was good in the end.” He also said he loved playing at the new Melbourne Icehouse where the Flyers play some of their matches. His mother said the family had looked at options for training in Melbourne but struggled to find something worthwhile. “There are a few future stars just in Damon’s side alone,” she said. “But it’s such a small sport there just isn’t the resources to train the kids.”

Magpies prevail in classic duel BY BRAD McGRATH

CASEYCARDINIALEAGUEGRANDFINALS

NARRE Warren has turned the tables on arch rival Cranbourne in a classic MPNFL Casey Cardinia League grand final at Edwin Flack Reserve on Saturday. The Magpies defeated the gallant Eagles 22.13 (145) to 19.9 (123) to bring home their fifth premiership in seven seasons and reverse last season’s grand final loss to Cranbourne. The plucky Magpies had solid contributors all over the ground, with Jackson Parker being awarded the VCFL medal for best afield, skipper Michael Collins producing a typically gutsy performance and star forward Kerem Baskaya booting six goals. Magpies coach Chris Toner said the clash between the two league heavyweights had been one of the best he had seen. ‘‘It was a terrific game of footy and it was a great game,’’ he said. ‘‘We were fortunate to be in front at the end.’’ When Cranbourne settled in the second term they suddenly found themselves five goals in front with Norm Walker medallist Marc Holt dominating, bringing up six majors before halftime, and Justin Berry again producing on the big stage. A boilover looked likely. But the Magpies had a steely resolve with Andy Soumilas, Parker and damaging ruckman Steve Watson all lifting and helping their team edge within 10 points by half-time. Toner suspected his team would be good enough to run over the top of the Eagles with his players far fresher after taking the easy route to the grand final courtesy of their victory over the [ 22 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Eagles in the semi-final. ‘‘We just needed to peg them back a bit and stay close and I thought if we were close at three-quarter time we would run over the top and I was pretty confident that they would need to be four or five goals in front to beat us,’’ he said. ‘‘I had a lot of belief that we were fitter and we had done it the easy way by finishing on top and having the week off and regardless of what anyone says you need that time, and to have that time helped with the last-quarter effort.’’ Cranbourne coach Doug Koop was proud of his charges’ efforts after they hit the front early in the final term, but he believes the fresher legs of Narre Warren had won them the game. ‘‘Congratulations to both sides. It was an out-

standing game of footy today,’’ he said. ‘‘Unfortunately there is only one winner and congratulations go to Narre Warren. ‘‘Five premierships in seven years says they are an outstanding club and certainly did what they had to do after last year. ‘‘To my blokes I couldn’t be prouder of your efforts today — well done.’’ From the moment Cranbourne hit the lead in the final quarter the Magpies took control of the contest, booting 8.2 to 5.4 for the quarter, to turn their six-point lead into a 22-point buffer. Baskaya booted six majors for the day in an enthralling battle with Cranbourne full back Andre Young but one of the most influential players on the ground was at the other end for

Tough contest: Cranbourne’s Brandon Osborne boots the ball forward. the Magpies. With Holt running riot opposed to Kain Baskaya in the second term, Toner swung vice captain Lee Boyle onto the Cranbourne star. Boyle did a superb job in restricting Holt, who had earlier brought up his 150th goal for the season, to two majors in the second half. The continued run of youngster Adam Giobbi from half-back and the work of dangerous forward Aaron McIver (four goals) were crucial factors in the victory.

Scorpions coach resigns

— Brad McGrath

No Song No Supper charges to victory in the $15,000 Harold Bould Memorial 0-68 Handicap (2428m) at Pakenham on Saturday. Steven Pateman was on the Patrick Payne-trained five-year-old, pictured on the inside, with Echelon and East Verses West rounding out the placings.

Relegation not that bad after all for Comets ‘‘Being relegated may just give us the opportunity to develop our younger players. There’s a good crop of young players coming through and I’m hoping that because we’re playing in division 3 and not division 2, they can develop a winning culture and then carry that through. ‘‘We’ll only have one goal in mind and that is to win the league next year.’’ De Martino, who took over from Doug Chisholm mid-season, is yet to be re-signed for next year but is hopeful of winning the position by the end of Octo-

ber. ‘‘I’ve expressed my desire to coach the team next year,’’ he said. The Comets rested several top-liners from the clash against Noble Park, including David Terek and Nagus Henry as they begin the rebuild. Youngsters Johnny Negassi and Hamish and Scott Miller showed enough to suggest they would be part of the Comets’ future. The Comets trailed 1-0 with 15 minutes to go but with nothing to play for, De Martino changed the team’s structure in a bid to score and win the game.

No Song on song

CASEY Comets coach Joe De Martino believes being relegated to state league 3 south-east could be a blessing in disguise as the team goes through a rebuilding phase. The Comets brought the curtain down on their soccer season on Saturday with a 3-0 loss to Noble Park which confirmed their position on the bottom of the ladder in state league 2. De Martino said his goal would be to push the Comets’ youth into the senior line-up and develop a winning culture.

REIGNING VFL coach of the year Brett Lovett has quit the Casey Scorpions. Lovett, 46, said the rigours of coaching at VFL level, family and business commitments meant he would not see out his two-year contract with the Scorpions. ‘‘I just decided that the time was right to put more time into the family and business,’’ he said. ‘‘The level of the VFL is going up every year and the players require a lot of time with game reviews and editing tapes.’’ Lovett took on the Scorpions’ top job last summer when Brad Gotch took an assistant coaching role with Port Adelaide in the he AFL. Scorpions general manager Brian Woodman said Lovett had made an outstanding contribution in his one season with the club. ‘‘We’re disappointed to lose such a fine football person, but we understand his reasons,’’ he said. ’’It’s about him wanting to spend more time with his family and also putting more into his nursery business. ‘‘Brett is first and foremost a genuine family man so we can see how he’s come to this decision.’’ Woodman said the Scorpions will work closely with alignment partner Melbourne to find Lovett’s replacement. Lovett said that towards the end of the VFL season he knew he could not continue in the role. The former Melbourne star’s son, Jake, is a promising footballer and is in line to be selected with TAC Cup team Dandenong Stingrays. ‘‘At the end of the season — like any player or coach — you either commit or you don’t,’’ he said. ‘‘My son had been trialling with the Dandenong Stingrays’ squad and I couldn’t go. My wife took him out there and that’s all great. ‘‘But it’s crazy doing what I’m doing when, at the age Jake is at, I should be supporting him. ‘‘I’ve got two daughters as well.’’ While the Lovett family will take priority for now, the former Frankston Dolphins and Sandringham mentor would not rule out a coaching return in the future. ‘‘I’m 46 now and I don’t know how long you can coach for,’’ he said. ‘‘At the moment I’m just going to spend some time with the kids but you never know down the track what will happen.’’

BY BRAD McGRATH THERE was a familiar surname on board Classic Gem at Pakenham on Saturday — Childs. No, it wasn’t 71-time group 1 winner Greg Childs making a shock return to the saddle but his son Jordan Childs who is an apprentice to another former top hoop Patrick Payne. And if his ride on Classic Gem was anything to go by, the 16 year old has inherited some of the ability that netted his father moe than 2100 wins over a long career. The younger Childs expertly guided the five-year-old mare through the field in the $15,000 Fire Up Centrebet Maiden Plate (1414m) to record his fourth victory in his short career. The $14 chance was having her 19th start with three seconds and three thirds the only bounty she had claimed. ‘‘She’s been very honest and she tries hard but she lacks a bit of ability,’’ trainer Kelvin Southey said. ‘‘She has had quite a few placings but I think the way the race was run helped her, they went out pretty hard and then tired and she came from last.’’ It was also Mornington trainer’s 50th winner in a career that has spanned 10 years with the biggest victory the 2010 Pakenham Cup with Blaze Adrift. He was also impressed with the performance of Childs. The teenager is no stranger to horses having come from a show riding background before deciding to follow in his famous father’s footsteps. ‘‘I think he’s only been riding for a few months and that was his fourth winner,’’ Southey said. ‘‘He’s going to have two pretty good teachers [Payne and Greg Childs].’’ It was a successful weekend for Southey with Our Lucky Day finishing second in the $15,000 E J Meney Memorial Maiden Plate (1600m) at Swan Hill.
