The agony of race taunts BY CATHERINE WATSON

All clear: Will and Mel Castro believe younger Australians are much more accepting of multiculturalism.

Cruel words: Neekbakht Yusofi, pictured with her son Hussain, is an easy target for racial abuse. you could be arrested for being a particular race. The Weekly spoke to a number of immigrants in the Hampton Park shopping centre last week and found a range of experiences. Mel Castro said that soon after she arrived in Australia from the Philippines, a boy spat on and abused her while she was shopping. ‘‘I was so surprised and annoyed that a little boy would do that.’’ But that was in 1985 and she has never experienced anything similar since then. Nor has her husband, Will Castro. ‘‘Before, it was the older citizens who abused you, especially if they thought you were Japanese, because of the war. But Australia has changed. The young ones today are much better educated about multiculturalism,’’ he said. Mr E Fernando, who arrived in Australia from Sri Lanka in 1976, said he had never experienced racism. ‘‘In fact, this is a very friendly country.’’ Lee Guzman, who arrived from the Philippines three years ago, said neither he nor his wife had copped racism, nor had he seen any. Samoan couple Christian and Malia Kapsin said the only time they saw racism was on TV.

SPEAKOUT THE Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission report, Reporting Racism: what you say matters, called for all Victorians to stand up against hate. The report, based on a survey and interviews, found most people did not report seeing or experiencing racism because they didn’t know where to report it, feared reprisals or thought nothing would be done about it. Thirty-two per cent of respondents had seen or experienced racism at work, 31 per cent on the street and 15 per cent on public transport. Acting Commissioner Karen Toohey said racism ranged from low-level incidents, such as offensive gestures or name calling, to physical assaults. “Racism can undermine an individual’s sense of self-worth, leave them feeling vulnerable and isolated and affect their mental and physical health.” She called on people to report racist incidents on the commission’s anti-hate website, antihate.vic.gov.au.

NEEKBAKHT Yusofi doesn’t speak English well enough to understand the angry words but she gets the gist of it: ‘‘Go back home!’’ With her distinctive Afghan garb, the diminutive Hampton Park woman is an easy target for racists, usually carloads of youths who yell at her when she’s crossing at an intersection. It’s only happened three or four times in her seven years in Australia, but each time it has upset her dreadfully. ‘‘It makes her cry,’’ her son Hussain said. Mrs Yusofi is the human face of a report released last week by the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission that found many Victorians experienced racism. Asked what she would say to those who abused her if she could speak English fluently, Mrs Yusofi replied through her son: ‘‘I would say, ‘That’s not a good thing to do. I can’t change my dress and scarf — that’s just my culture’.’’ Mr Yusofi said he was occasionally racially abused but not as severely as his mother. ‘‘There are just a few people out there. You can’t blame everyone. It’s everywhere, not just in Australia.’’ He said the consequences of racism were much more serious in his home country, where

Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon described Casey as ‘‘the most efficient organisation compared to other growth municipalities’’. She also claims a rates increase of 7.5 per cent is needed to compensate the council for costs outside its control. How come Wyndham, with population growth more than twice Casey’s, will have a rates rise of 5.5 per cent? Casey’s budget is about facilitating maximum growth and development irrespective of impact on environment and ratepayers. Population growth is a key driver behind climate change. Governments and municipalities should plan smaller, more sustainable populations, not standing up for laissez-faire modelling. Growth, at any price, means more traffic congestion, pollution, overcrowding in schools and demands on health budgets and hospital services. John Glazebrook, Endeavour Hills

Farming cash crop ill-conceived Despite the intimated 7.5 per cent increase in residential rates and the recommendations of the local government minister, Cr Geoff Ablett proposes what amounts to a subsidy to farmers inside the urban growth boundary. If a business is unable to remain profitable, should the public support it? I draw attention to the recent withdrawal of Ford Australia, despite public funds spent on maintaining viability. Without sounding flippant, it’s difficult to feel sympathy for Peter White and his $80,000 rate assessment while he talks about his heritage-listed driveway and $40 million property. Damian Chapman, Berwick

Re: Budget win for Cranbourne

Putting the fun in language classes BY CATHERINE WATSON FUN and games . . . that was the first thing Delhi teacher Nidhi Duggal noticed at Cranbourne’s Rangebank Primary School. ‘‘The content is the same but here children learn in a playful way,’’ she said. Ms Duggal was among a group of 12 teachers and principals who visited the school, the first in Victoria to teach Hindi to all pupils, as part of a study tour. They joined in Hindi classes, doing a bit of one-on-one tutoring. Ms Duggal said they were impressed by the progress of the pupils and the school’s Hindi teacher, Pooja Verma. The approach to learning might be different, she said, but the children at Rangebank are as lovely as those at her school, Delhi Public School Ghaziabad Vasundhara. The school introduced Hindi lessons to grades 1 and 2 last year and older pupils have started classes this year. Rangebank principal Colin Avery said the inclusion of Hindi in the curriculum had resulted

in many flow-on effects. Last year, the Consul General of India, Dr Subhakanta Behera, visited the school to present an Indian flag and chat with pupils. In January, Mr Avery visited Ms Duggal’s school and he hopes there might one day be teacher and student exchanges between the schools. He said a lot of schools were teaching Chinese languages but Indian languages and culture tended to be overlooked in spite of India’s emergence as one of the great industrial and commercial countries of the world. ‘‘The students will have the confidence of knowing another country in depth, which will give them a better understanding of other cultures in general. ‘‘One of our goals is that some students will take such an interest they eventually work in India or with an Indian company.’’ Rangebank is ahead of the game, with the Victorian Education Department last week launching a language plan to increase the number of primary students studying a foreign language.

Namaste: Hannah and Adam share a giggle with Nidhi Duggal in an informal Hindi tutorial. The Victorian Coalition promised during the 2010 election campaign to introduce compulsory language classes in every primary school, but the

most recent statistics show just 55.5 per cent of state primary students studied a second language in 2012, down from 70.7 per cent in 2008.

Giving back to help others BY ALI AHMADZAI WHEN Megan Powell’s husband died, the 30-year-old Cranbourne mother was devastated. She battled severe depression, adjustment disorder and control issues, forcing her to close down a prospering market research business. But, a year after joining a new employment initiative, she is finally ready to re-enter the workforce. WISE Employment Services in Cranbourne, which recently benefited from an announced $1.4 million in federal funding, is offering a personal helpers and mentors program for people affected by mental illness. Mrs Powell has completed a certificate in training and assessment and is now a qualified support worker, a skill she hopes will allow her to give back to the community. ‘‘I just want to help people in the same way that I’ve been helped.’’ She said the staff at WISE had been nonjudgmental. ‘‘They gave me self-empowerment and made me look at life in more positive way.’’ Mrs Powell said she was much more positive after taking part in the program. ‘‘It’s good to be able to live your own life the

way you want to — I don’t like saying normal life because nothing is normal.’’ WISE chief executive John Bateup said the funding would allow it to employ more staff and support and care for up to 70 extra people in Casey and Cardinia. He said personalised programs helped people with a mental illness overcome their doubts about getting back into work. ‘‘Our staff focus on their recovery, demonstrating

that people with mental illness can lead a fulfilled life in the community with the same opportunities as other people. ‘‘We focus on what people with mental illness can do, rather than what they can’t do.’’ Mr Bateup said WISE had also received inquiries from people who would like to work in the new program, especially as peer support workers.

BY CATHERINE WATSON A 17 per cent drop in robberies in Casey in the 12 months to March 31 has been hailed by the head of the Casey police service area. Inspector Wayne Viney said the police policy of targeting known recidivist offenders and providing a strong police presence in high-risk community locations appeared to be hitting the mark. He said police partnerships with the community, including the Access Rugby Employment Program and the Casey Liquor Accord, were helping to reduce youth offending and improve public safety. There was also a 10 per cent drop in vehicle thefts, down from 638 to 577, and a 1 per cent drop in residential burglaries, down from 1017 to 1005. However, non-residential burglaries increased from 463 to 481. Family violence rates also continued their unrelenting rise, with 1195 reports in the year to March 31, up 8 per cent from a year

earlier, but other assaults remained unchanged at 1001. Inspector Viney said police were working with the Casey, Cardinia and Greater Dandenong councils on the Challenge Family Violence Project, partnering with influential male community leaders to change harmful attitudes and behaviours towards women. ‘‘I have said before in many forums there is no difference between an assault of a woman or child in the street and an assault in the home. ‘‘It’s time that everyone in our community took a stand against family violence. Projects such as this are the first step in changing cultural attitudes.’’ Narre Warren North Labor MP Luke Donnellan said the government focused too much on a ‘‘tough on crime’’ approach rather than dealing with the underlying causes of crime. ‘‘That requires dealing with disadvantage, improving training and employment opportunities for our young and ensuring the government is focused on job creation.’’

FEATURESTORY THENUMBERS ■ Australians produce about 606 kilograms of waste each a year. Only Americans produce more — about 927 kilograms each. ■ The average family throws away about a third of the food it buys. ■ Victorians sent about 12 million tonnes of waste to landfill in 2011. ■ In 2006-07, 52 per cent of total waste was diverted from landfills to recycling facilities. ■ Victoria’s waste and resource recovery industry employs about 8000 employees and has an annual turnover of more than $2 billion.

Waste of time pays off F

irst, a confession: I have two bikes and both of them came from the hard rubbish collection. Actually, it was my friends who picked up the bikes, not me, but I have picked up a few treasures in my time. An old cane armchair, beautifully weathered by rain, sun and time, was a real find. So was an almost-new vacuum cleaner. I replaced it on the hard rubbish with my not-verygood one, and someone soon picked that up, too. For my friend Frank, who found one of my bikes, the annual hard rubbish collection is better than Christmas: so much stuff and all of it free. He has a work ute and often comes home with it piled with timber, steel, bike wheels, lamps, rugs. Wait long enough, he reckons, and whatever you want will turn up. There are local laws against what’s known as ‘scavenging’ on hard rubbish but almost everyone does it, either openly or covertly, sneaking back at night with the car or trailer and hoping not to be sprung. Two years ago, a police patrol arrested a Lilydale man who was trawling through hard rubbish at 2.30am. They waited until he picked up a vacuum cleaner and put it in his car before they nabbed him and took him back to the station for questioning. After a massive public outcry, the police acknowledged that the man hadn’t actually done anything illegal because Yarra Ranges Council did not have any local laws against taking hard rubbish. Since then most councils have moved — or are moving — from an annual to an at-call collection designed to block professional scavengers who like to trawl an area. Casey Council moved to an at-call system two years ago. The waste management department recently compared the two systems and found higher rates of recycling in the new system, but that didn’t account for what was unofficially

The state government has released a 30-year plan to reduce waste and increase recycling. CATHERINE WATSON finds the state is latching onto what the Steptoes of the world have known for many years: there is money in muck. recycled by scavengers, or ‘gleaners’ in the old system. Maroondah councillor Les Wilmott, who chairs the Melbourne Metropolitan Waste Management Group, says he still sees people stopping and picking up stuff — ‘‘if they can use it, good luck to them”. Last month, the state government released Getting full value, its waste and resource recovery plan. Environment Minister Ryan Smith said the 30-year plan, based on recovering more from the waste stream, would boost the state’s economy. The state is latching onto what the Steptoes of the world have known for many years: there is money in muck. Melbourne public relations consultant Tamara DiMattina realised that many years ago when she visited India and saw the ‘‘rag-pickers’’, many of them children, who made a living out of the stuff that people throw away. They retrieve rags, plastic, glass, cans, anything that can be sold to the recyclers based in the city’s slums. It was a pivotal moment for her. She’d always been uneasy about the waste in the west. The trouble is that our whole economy is based on convincing us to buy more stuff to keep the economy growing. “Most of us accept that more stuff hasn’t been good for us. It doesn’t make us happier. What makes us happier is connections and family and community.” In 2009, she set up Buy Nothing New Month to try to get people to think about the stuff they buy. The premise is that, apart from food and health and sanitary products, people commit to buying only second-hand goods during October.

[ 8 ] CASEY WEEKLY – CRANBOURNE – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE June 3, 2013

The campaign is backed by the Metropolitan Waste Management Group and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, which operates 21 op shops in Victoria. DiMattina says the idea is that people can buy from op shops with a clear conscience, knowing that shopping there is environmentally sustainable and socially beneficial. A late convert to op shopping — she was living in London, working at Sotheby’s and required to dress smartly on a low wage — she says secondhand is now her default position. ‘‘If anyone says they like what I’m wearing, I’m proud to say it’s from an op shop.” Part of the campaign is about encouraging people to find their own style, to realise they don’t have to wear what’s being advertised on the billboards. “It relieves a lot of the pressure about trying to keep up. Uni kids really get into it, but also young mothers. They hand around stuff from their kids. I think women are more interested than men because men can wear the same T-shirt for 10 years.’’ She insists she’s no expert in waste management or sustainability. “I’m just one person who thinks the way we’re consuming is crazy.” Andrew Valder is another who has approached the challenge of reducing waste obliquely. His light-bulb moment came when he was walking around Bondi three years ago, looking at the TV sets, old couches, wardrobes and vacuum cleaners that people left out on the streets. “Wouldn’t it be good,” Valder mused to his partner Darryl Nichols, “if the whole neighbourhood had a garage sale on the same day”.

And so began the Garage Sale Trail, part money-spinner, part social connector. They started it as a small community festival in Bondi to raise awareness about illegal dumping. There were 126 garage sales the first year. They averaged $750 in sales and an analyst estimated 15 shipping containers worth of ‘junk’ was taken off the streets. The trail went national in 2011. Last year, 7514 households listed 624,432 items for sale with a total value of more than $2.4 million. This year, up to 20 Victorian councils are expected to take part. Casey — Victoria’s most populous municipality — agreed to join last month after Valder explained the benefits for councils, principally the massive diversion of unwanted goods from landfill and the reduced costs of the hard rubbish collection. Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon sees multiple benefits. “It’s not just about reducing landfill and raising money; it also brings neighbours and streets together.” The motto is ‘Sell in the morning, socialise in the afternoon’, although of course the social thing starts the minute the trestles are put up. There is a huge amount of hard work and organisational talent behind the Garage Sale Trail’s success but in the end, for Valder, it comes down to one word: fun. People who take part are enjoying themselves, he says. The day gives people a chance to meet other people in their street, to flick through their record collections, try on their ’70s gear, discover kindred interests and enjoy a few laughs. He says you can’t scare people into being more sustainable, but you can entice them into it, with much better results. Garage Sale Trail, October 26. Details: getinvolved.garagesaletrail.com.au.

INBRIEF Sexism tackled Thirty local men experienced in family violence prevention were put through their paces in Narre Warren at a day of mentor training. Casey’s manager of community safety Caroline Bell said the men would mentor community leaders of various faiths and backgrounds on how to tackle sexism, discrimination and violence against women.

Illegal bikes targeted Motorbike users riding illegally in Casey Council reserves are on the radar with the council and police combining for a blitz. The council has seized 20 unregistered motorbikes since 2008, of which 15 have been crushed. Mayor Amanda Stapledon said the illegal use of bikes was an increasing problem, causing damage to parks and disturbing wildlife and residents. Residents who see motorbikes in council reserves can call the council on 9705 5200 or the police.

Many pets not registered Almost 30,000 dogs were registered in Casey last year but the city’s local laws department estimates this is only about 60 per cent of the dog population. The proportion of registered cats is even lower — about 25 per cent of the estimated cat population of about 33,000. The figures are contained in Casey’s domestic animal management plan for 2013-16.

Tools taken from work sites Trade tools have been targeted by thieves stealing from construction sites around Casey Fields in Cranbourne East. Three overnight thefts were reported last week.

Driver in a hurry charged A Lyndhurst man had his car impounded for 30 days under hoon laws after being clocked at 188km/h in a 100 zone on the DandenongHastings Road in Skye last Thursday week. The man told police he was in a hurry to get home. He was charged on summons with driving offences.

Salvo pioneer honoured with boulevard BY CATHERINE WATSON

MAKINGINROADS

NEW suburbs stretching as far as the eye could see, little infrastructure, young families stretched to the limit, rising unemployment . . . That was the scene Derek Linsell encountered when the Salvation Army sent him to Cranbourne in 1990. And yes, he can see the similarities with the Cranbourne East and Clyde of today. These days Mr Linsell lives in New York, where he runs a company advising major corporations on social responsibility, but he returned to Cranbourne last month for the opening of Linsell Boulevard, named in his honour. He said he and his wife retained a deep affection for the area after spending eight years there. The Salvation Army sent him to set up a local ministry and services for the hundreds of young families who were pouring into the area for the cheap new houses. ‘‘They recognised there was very little social infrastructure here and that that was a recipe for disaster. ‘‘It was a community that struggled — decent people having a go but economic conditions went against them. ‘‘It was the Keating recession and people were

RESIDENTS of several Clyde estates are celebrating the opening of a major road connecting them with Cranbourne. The final missing link in Linsell Boulevard, Cranbourne East, was recently completed, finally linking Berwick-Cranbourne Road and Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road. Steph Webb, a resident of the Cascades in Clyde estate, said the opening of the boulevard meant a saving of up to seven kilometres for each return trip. ‘‘People are just ecstatic! It makes such a difference.’’ She said residents of the Cascades and Selandra Rise estates could now reach schools and childcare centres in Cranbourne East and the Cranbourne town centre without a lengthy and circuitous trip.

King of the road: Derek Linsell, pictured with councillors and residents of the Cascades on Clyde estate, cuts the ribbon to formally open Linsell Boulevard. losing their jobs. It was also the time when the Kirner government legalised poker machines and that did untold damage.’’ The Salvation Army worked with the long-

term unemployed and set up a thrift shop and a furniture-making business. It also worked with Cranbourne Council to set up the skate shed and worked with the

Anglican Church to establish Casey Grammar. ‘‘It was a very important part of our lives,’’ Mr Linsell said. ‘‘It was beautiful work — we literally saved people’s lives. ‘‘We got people work, we saved marriages, we saved families. It was such a privilege.’’

Families for felines Meet Nathaniel, 18 months old and already onto the second of his nine lives. Nathaniel, pictured with Krystal Mornson, was picked up last month — skinny, homeless and badly burned — and taken to the RSPCA shelter in Pearcedale. He’s now well on the road to recovery and almost ready for a new home, one of 37 adult cats at the shelter up for adoption. Supervisor Alice Currey said the shelter was keen to find homes for the adult cats before the expected influx of kittens in spring. ‘‘We take care to match the right cat with the right owner, depending on whether they have young children or the cats will be kept indoors.’’ Kittens cost $140, cats aged over four months cost $85 and ‘senior’ cats, aged over seven, are free. The shelter, at 1030 Robinsons Road, is open for adoptions from 10am-4pm daily.

Check your insurance renewal to make sure the fire services levy is removed.

From 1 July 2013, funding for fire services will be through a levy collected by local councils with council rates. You should no longer pay the levy with your insurance premium. The Fire Services Levy Monitor is here to make sure insurance companies do not include a fire services levy with premiums. If you have property insurance, you should carefully check the amount of your next insurance premium and compare it with last year’s. If you have a concern or complaint about your premium, contact the Fire Services Levy Monitor.

Getting past blank screens BY CATHERINE WATSON here are few things more terrifying than a blank white computer screen, says Michael Robotham. The comment is unexpected coming from one of the world’s most popular thriller writers — but he says that each time he embarks on a new novel he wonders if he can pull it off. Robotham, whose novels have been published in 22 languages, including some he didn’t know existed, will explain all when he talks to an audience in Cranbourne this month. His most recent novel, a dark psychological thriller, Say You’re Sorry, sees the return of one his best-loved characters, Joe O’Loughlin, an embittered psychologist with Parkinson’s disease and a dysfunctional marriage. Robotham is the author of nine novels, including Lost and Shatter. The Sydney author is also the ghost writer of 12 autobiographies of pop stars, politicians and showbiz personalities, including Rolf Harris, Geri Halliwell and Lulu. A former investigative journalist with Fairfax Media, he’s known for meticulous research into forensic pathology and criminal psychology. He said he first decided to be a novelist when he was 12, and journalism and ghost writing were just stepping stones to that. ‘‘Writing fiction is a lot harder than I expected. Instead of having a wealth of material at my fingertips — the interviews and research about someone — I have to start from scratch, inventing everything.

Parkdale makes a pitch for DDCA slot PARKDALE Cricket Club has applied to enter the Dandenong District Cricket Association next season. The DDCA executive is expected to consider the application at its next meeting on June 12. Parkdale president James Seeary is hopeful his club and its four senior sides will get a favourable outcome but know the decision now rests with DDCA clubs. ‘‘It’s a pretty big change for the club. I think the only move made previously was when the old Federal competition was rolled into the Victorian Turf Cricket Association,’’ he said.

Seeary said the club had looked at moving out of the VTCA after an increase of costs to play in the competition next season, especially pertaining to higher affiliation fees and demands to buy new covers. ‘‘Our players don’t agree with some of the structural parts of the VTCA, so we looked at the DDCA and met with people from the association and were suitably impressed. ‘‘It will mean slightly more travel because in the VTCA we play against teams like Mentone and Dingley who are just down the road from us.’’

The Parkdale Junior Cricket Club will not be making the move with the senior club as the juniors play in a very localised competition and are believed to be happy in their current situation. Parkdale senior sides are expected to continue playing their home games at Jerry Green Reserve, Parkdale and at the Parkdale Secondary College. Parkdale officials are yet to decide which divisions their lower sides will play in. The top team is likely to be entered into the DDCA turf 2 competition. — Roy Ward

Comets clobber United CASEY Comets posted their biggest win of the FFV State League 3 south-east season with a 4-0 victory over Springvale United at Comets Stadium on Saturday. The victory could have been bigger if it was not for the brilliant Yahya Dimasi in the Springvale goal making several telling saves. The Comets’ best early chance was a long shot by Frank Gibson but Dimasi knocked it away. Not to be denied, Paul Presti gathered the ball and Gibson took advantage to score. Soon afterwards, Chris Reid cleared the ball to Matt Morris-Thomas, who controlled it well before passing it to Presti, who then put the Comets 2-0 ahead. Springvale United had its first chance in the 40th minute when the Comets fumbled in defence but Hariz Omerovic couldn’t convert, putting the ball over the bar. Jason Rand made it 3-0 with a header following a cross by Antun Vulic. Shortly afterwards, the perfect game was completed when Domenic Branca converted after Sean McLaughlan put him in the clear. The Comets have a week off before clashing with Doncaster on June 14.

Rain gets jump on racing meet SANDOWN jumps racing meets were abandoned on Saturday after heavy rain made the track unusable. The feature events from Saturday’s meeting, the $101,500 Australian Hurdle (3400 metres) and the $101,500 Australian Steeplechase (3900m) will now be run at Sandown as the climax of the 2013 jumps racing season on Wednesday, August 28. Racing Victoria chairman of stewards Terry Bailey walked Sandown on Saturday morning with track manager Tim Bailey and decided there was no choice but to abandon the meeting. “Sandown had 56mm of rain up until 5.30am and it had continued to rain until I left the track at 8am,” Bailey said. “It’s unfortunate for all, but the track was simply too wet and unsafe for racing.” Racing Victoria operations manager Paul Bloodworth explained that there were no suitable options to reschedule the races this week. “We considered a range of options for the conduct of these races and determined that the most suitable one, given the existing program, was to transfer them to the end of the season where they would remain a focal point. ‘‘Sandown was booked out for much of the coming week for use of its car track and had we transferred the races to Mornington on Monday week it would have impacted on either of these races or the feature jumps races programmed for Bendigo six days later.” Bloodworth added that an early to midAugust date had not been chosen so as to avoid a clash with the South Australian Grand National Hurdle and Grand National Steeplechase. The $80,000 Australia’s Best Pie Competition 2013 Handicap (1600m) for three-yearolds and the $80,000 Le Pine Funerals Plate (2100m) will both be run at Moonee Valley this Wednesday with the existing fields and barriers as they stood at final acceptance time. The Le Pine Funerals Plate will now be run over 2040m. The $100,000 Sportingbet Handicap (1200m) and the $100,000 Le Pine Funerals Plate (1400m) for mares have both been added to the Flemington program this Saturday. All other races will not be rescheduled.

Clinical Cannons take the sting out of lacklustre Rays A STRING of tactical victories led Calder Cannons to a comfortable 42-point win against Dandenong Stingrays in TAC Cup at Highgate Reserve on Saturday. For the second time this season the Cannons held their opposition goalless to half-time, on the way to winning 14.5 (89) to 6.11 (47). Dandenong (5-3) slipped to fourth with the loss while Calder (4-4) consolidated its top eight standing by moving into sixth position.

With the start delayed for 30 minutes for ground maintenance it was Calder that exploded out of the blocks with five unanswered goals. While the Stingrays did enjoy momentum at times in the remaining three quarters, Calder’s intelligence close to goal always kept the scoreboard a one-sided affair. The Stingrays lifted after a quarter-time spray from coach Graeme Yeats, who named names as he pointed out instances of lax concentration and

[ 22 ] CASEY WEEKLY – CRANBOURNE – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE June 3, 2013

unaccountable defence. But wresting territorial dominance from the Stingrays was a defining moment in the Cannons’ win, with Calder walking to the half-time break having given up only five points in spite of playing much of the second term in its back half. The third term was five goals to three Calder’s way. Vic Metro defender Jake Lever posted himself at the top of the 50-metre arc and was noticeable

trapping the ball in the Cannons’ forward line, either intercept marking or making a contest on a number of attempted clearing kicks. The final quarter was a more open affair, with Dandenong finding their run and a number of players growing in confidence. It was a tease for what the match could have been if the Stingrays had been on their game from the opening bounce, as Zak Jones, Will Hartung and Jack Lonie all finished strongly.

Scorpions send ominous signal to rivals BY BRAD McGRATH CASEY Scorpions coach Rohan Welsh declared his team’s 65-point demolition of Sandringham Zebras at Trevor Barker Beach Oval on Saturday their best victory of the VFL season. The Scorpions’ ferocious attack on the man and ball proved to be overwhelming for the St Kilda affiliate as they extended the margin at each change to win 18.15 (123) to 8.10 (58). On a day tailor-made for the Scorpions’ hardbodied midfielders as the likes of Danny Nicholls, Tom Couch and James Magner excelled

in the wet and slippery conditions. ‘‘Just from a team perspective the way we went about it and worked for each other . . . our focus was to play team-oriented footy and from the first bounce we worked really hard for each other,” Welsh said. “It was a perfect day for someone like Couchy and our inside midfielders like Nicho. I thought Mitch Gent was really good in there as well, Magner too.” Welsh admitted he was concerned with team balance before the game, with Max Gawn and Jake Spencer both in their line-up in conditions

that did not suit big men. But Gawn finished with four goals and he and Spencer clearly won the battle against the Zebras’ ruck contingent headlined by Justin Koschitzke. Boom youngster Jesse Hogan kicked just one goal but was a presence. “Hoges puts a lot of pressure on himself to perform well . . . he didn’t kick a lot of goals but he still had 15 possessions and six marks in conditions like that. “We were a bit worried about going in tall and Spencer and especially Gawny forward were very good and I think the two big blokes had 11 shots

on goal between them and were clunking mark.” The win sends the Scorpions to the top of the ladder with six wins and two losses. They now clash with in-form Collingwood, who were narrow winners over Northern Blues and sit in sixth position, just four points behind the Scorpions. “I reckon it was our best win, just having that even spread across the board. We’ve had a couple of good wins, the one against Geelong but we let them off the hook in the last quarter,” Welsh said. “That was probably the best we’ve been all season.”

Star boots 14 goals as Magpies dominate NARRE Warren further strengthened its Casey Cardinia League premiership favouritism with a 169-point hammering of Tooradin-Dalmore at Kalora Park on Saturday. The Magpies had 49 scoring shots to the Seagulls’ 10 but it was the way they dominated the clearances and moved the ball that had coach Chris Toner smiling. Magpies spearhead Kerem Baskaya stole the show with 14 goals in the 32.17 (209) to 6.4 (40) victory which consolidated their position at the head of the ladder with a whopping percentage and severely dented TooradinDalmore’s chances of playing finals. ‘‘We played really good footy — probably the best we’ve played all season and as good as last season,’’ Toner said. ‘‘They [Tooradin-Dalmore] drew with Cranbourne three or four weeks ago. ‘‘Our forward pressure was outstanding, Kerem kicked 14.3 but the way he went about it was great, he didn’t wrestle, he just was leading and marking everything that came his way.’’ While Baskaya was in the limelight because of his haul of goals, the Magpies had winners everywhere with Colin McNamara, Michael Collins, Dylan Quirk and Justin Marriott dominating the midfield and completely shutting Seagulls ace Matthew Wade out of the contest. Toner was also pleased by the performance of his two ruckmen, Dan Harders and Steve Watson, who are both beginning to regain some match fitness after injuries. Tooradin-Dalmore coach Tom Hallinan said his team was simply thumped by a more committed and skilled team. He refused to blame the staggering

injury list, which includes Beau Miller and Julian Suarez, for the big loss to the reigning premier. ‘‘It just never went right,’’ he said. ‘‘We were simply a C class team and they were an A class team. ‘‘They were very good but we had no pressure or intent, basically everything we trained for went out the window. ‘‘They were outstanding and the way they played tells me that they have gone to another level.’’ Hallinan is just hopeful his team has learnt a valuable lesson from the big loss. ‘‘We had eight guys in our team under 20 with a cumulative games tally of 42,’’ he said. ‘‘There was a lot of learning to take out of the game, it wasn’t a rant and rave. ‘‘I was somewhat disappointed in our more experienced players — that’s the time you need them, not to so much carry the load but show the way. ‘‘But the young guys actually outshone the experienced guys.’’ Cranbourne spearhead Marc Holt booted eight majors in the Eagles’ 77-point demolition of ROC at Casey Fields. The Eagles were leading 3.5 to 0.6 at half-time and shrugged off the Kangaroos’ challenge in the second half to win 14.12 (96) to 2.7 (19). Leigh Holt, Curtis Barker and Brandon Osborne were all solid contributors for the second-placed Eagles. Berwick recorded its best win of the season with a 29-point victory over Doveton which keeps it in touch with the top five. Tom Brennan and Jason Kelly starred for the Wickers while Mitchell Johnson booted four majors. Keysborough notched up its second win for the season, defeating plucky
