Farmers seek flood compo ‘‘Our clients’ properties have never been inundated to that extent. They’ve all sustained huge losses.’’ Ms Donaldson said that when Koo Wee Rup was hit by a very similar storm in June, after the banks had been reinstated, the drains carried the water downstream away from the farms as they were meant to. She said the total damages claim was estimated at $1 million but the cost to farmers continued to mount. Several of the farmers were still battling weed and soil contamination problems, she said, with one lucerne farmer unable to replant since the flooding. Thiess Degremont declined to comment and said the matter would be determined by VCAT. The claim also cites Melbourne Water as a party. A Melbourne Water spokesman said it believed it had acted in accordance with the Water Act. Melbourne Water announced last week it was about to start an $11.8 million upgrade of the Bunyip Main Drain to help protect Koo Wee Rup properties from flooding. The works include raising and repairing the southern levee bank between 11 Mile and 13 Mile roads to reduce flooding, and reshaping the bank to prevent landslips. Sections of Main Drain Road will need to be relocated to complete the works.

BY CATHERINE WATSON A GROUP of Koo Wee Rup farmers whose land was flooded in February last year will seek about $1 million compensation from AquaSure, the consortium building Victoria’s desalination plant. The 12 landowners, from McDonalds Drain and Ballarto roads, lodged their claim in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal last month. They claim their farms were inundated because a 40-metre section of a levee bank was removed in April 2010 to construct the desalination pipeline and was not replaced. In 2010, several farmers expressed concern that there would be flooding if the levee was not repaired. The solicitor handling the case, Belinda Donaldson of Sackville Wilks, is the daughter of a couple who are among the 12 claimants. She became involved when pipeline builders Thiess Degremont, part of the AquaSure consortium, invited landowners to fill out claim forms just a few weeks after the storm. She said the matter had not progressed since then apart from a report commissioned by AquaSure that found the farms would have flooded in any event. ‘‘We say it’s perfectly obvious the cause of the flooding was the failure to reinstate the portion of the bank that had been removed.

Clumsy thieves nick construction gear Detectives of the Frankston crime investigation unit have released the security footage in the hope that the public may help to identify the two men. The excavator, a Clarke 873 model valued at $28,000, has not been recovered since the theft about 1.50am on May 15. A police spokesman said the theft was one of a series of similar thefts in the south-eastern and eastern suburbs in May and June in which

It falls off the truck twice before they give up and drag it out of the yard behind the truck, leaving wreckage scattered behind them.

Estate conundrum It is difficult to see any middle ground being reached in the Collison estate conundrum. Some residents of this ‘‘island paradise” perceive their lifestyles under threat from the rapidly contracting pack of sharks in the guise of moneyhungry developers and rate-grabbing councils circling their locale. Other residents lament the unmade roads and poor utilities. They also maintain their inalienable right to subdivide their properties amid an environment of ever-shifting changes to the law of the land. Labelling those who don’t subscribe to your viewpoint as “fossils and dinosaurs” and suggesting changes will possibly not occur “until those old fossils have passed away” is offensive and lends nothing to reasonable debate. As Alan Tully indicated (‘No minister, it’s not progress’, Weekly, July 30), residents require certainty, and he advocates a “neighbourhood residential zone” to preserve the special character of the estate. I can’t see any problem with improving roads, water and internet in the existing estate as suggested by Ms Yan. However, while desiring improvements, one must be aware and question

Toddlers in hand, exams on the mind BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS TEENAGE mothers are being given a vital stepping-stone to get back to school in a makeshift classroom at Mission Australia’s early learning centre in Doveton. While the young mothers learn VCE subjects, their babies sleep in a nursery in the next room. Cranbourne’s Leesa Leporte, 19, who became pregnant after completing year 10, said she didn’t think she would have gone back to school without the program. ‘‘I knew I was older than everyone else there. My friends had graduated and people knew I had dropped out because I was pregnant.’’ Sharing the program with 13 other mothers last year made the return to study a whole lot easier. Now she’s studying years 11 and 12 subjects at Hallam Senior College and has plans for future TAFE studies. Classmate Beth Coppola said the opportunity to stay close to her eight-month-old daughter Amber-Rose was the main reason she went ‘‘back

to school’’ through the Aim’n High program. When she first arrived, she was six months pregnant and had a year 10 education. ‘‘I didn’t know if I could be a good parent, let alone study as well,’’ Ms Coppola said. The work has been surprisingly easy for her, though, and she is now aiming for a university midwifery degree. Ms Coppola and three classmates are mentored by two teachers from Hallam Senior College in VCE English, sociology, health and human development, and mathematics. Mission Australia state director Emma Cassar said the program aimed to help an estimated 100 teenage mothers in the region return to school and get off welfare dependency. To join the program, call South East Youth Connections on 1800 335 106.

Property fee to replace fire levy

For DJ, the music’s stayin’ alive

CASEY residents with house insurance stand to save $130 a year under changes to Victoria’s fire levy. From next year, the levy on insurance premiums, now used to pay for fire services, will be replaced by a property fee to be imposed on all properties. The new levy, to be administered by councils in association with rate notices, will comprise a fixed component of $100 a year for residential properties and $200 for commercial, industrial and farming properties. There will also be a variable component calculated on the value of a property to be set at budget time. Casey householders currently pay an average of $270 with their insurance. Based on property values, the average levy will drop to $140 in 2012-13. Casey mayor Sam Aziz was pleased that costs would fall for most householders but said the administrative burden of collecting the new levy would fall on councils. ‘‘I wish governments of all levels would stop treating us as a collection agency,’’ he said.

KEVIN Attwood could blame it on the disco . . . or perhaps on his uncle, jazzman Tommy Carter, who persuaded him to come down to Radio Casey to fill in. Three months later, the former DJ finds himself hosting a three-hour disco and dance music program on Saturday nights — and managing the station. Not that he’s looking to blame anyone. He says that after a long career in retail, hotels and nightclubs, he couldn’t be happier with his new gig. ‘‘I was really surprised to find another job that made me feel enthusiastic. I feel like a 21 year old who’s just started his first job.’’ He comes to the station after a period of some turmoil. Long-term manager Geoff Ablett left in May to return to teaching. Radio veteran Ron Lock, who replaced him, moved on after just a few months. Attwood says it’s an exciting time for the station. ‘‘We’re on the bottom rung of the next level. It’s going to be very interesting to see what happens over the next 12 to 18 months.’’ He’s blown away by the diversity at the community-run station, where there are 15 languages spoken, 20 ethnic groups represented and

now living in Baxter, just down the road from the Baxter Tavern, where his uncle Tommy and his mother play in a jazz band of considerable local renown. A pop music fan and DJ, Attwood was the black sheep of the jazz-loving family. ‘‘My mum and I used to fight — she’d say, ‘You DJs are doing us out of a job’. ‘‘I’d say, ‘You play for half an hour then you have a break. You need to work harder’. ’’ But he’s warmed to jazz as he’s got older. ‘‘I love all music: pop, classical, jazz, because it’s in my genes. But my favourite is disco and dance music.’’ In his show, he’s been focusing on the 1970s and 1980s, which he regards as a lost era of music. When he started, he expected to be relegated to a graveyard shift on a week night only to find the prime Saturday night slot from 9pm-midnight was available because no one else wanted it. ‘‘I’ve been working on Saturday nights for so long now it’s part of my inner being. I come on after a young guy called Ryan Cody, so it’s five hours of pretty cool music.’’ Saturday night is party night at Casey Radio 97.7FM with Saturday Night Boost (Ryan Cody) from 7-9pm and Night Fever (Kevin Attwood) from 9pm-midnight.

Hands up around Australia for federal school funding

Capri& Curtains Blinds Up to

A BERWICK principal says his school is a prime example of how better funding for government schools leads to better results for children. Michael Muscat of Kambrya College travelled to Canberra last week to support calls for the federal government to immediately implement the recommendations of the Gonski review. He also signed one of 6700 hands — one for every public school in Australia — planted outside Parliament House. The review calls for a federal funding injection of $5 billion a year to schools, which works out to an average increase of $1500 a student. Mr Muscat said the extra money would allow Kambrya to lock in the improvements it had made through National Partnerships funding, which the school first received in 2009. ‘‘Up to that time, not only were a large per-

enough — in fact, they were falling further behind.’’ He said the funding was a godsend and allowed the school to employ two leading teachers — in literacy and numeracy — and a leadership coach, which produced remarkable results. ‘‘Our NAPLAN data now shows the college is actively improving student performance in literacy and numeracy at a rate higher than the national average. ‘‘VCE data has continued to improve each year since 2008 and our pass rate for senior VCAL sits at very close to 100 per cent.’’ He said the state government did not forward National Partnerships funding to the school last year and there was ‘‘considerable uncertainty’’ about whether it would be passed on in the future. ‘‘Further delays may result in some of the very productive initiatives being scaled back significantly.’’ Last Monday’s event, organised by the Australia Education Union, marked six months since the Gonski report was released.

FEATURESTORY

Pioneer’s lament for our thin green line Standing steady: Trees have been a constant in Peter Lawton’s life.

Out on a limb When it comes to emotive issues, trees come not far behind animal cruelty and abused children. A crowded public gallery at a Casey Council meeting last month was proof enough of that. That morning, council contractors had removed three trees from a row of 28 spotted gums in Old Coach Road. The trees, which Peter Lawton planted in 1966, were on Casey’s first register of significant trees, which the state government had approved less than two months earlier. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has issued an interim protection order to stop the council removing the remaining trees. The parties involved — the Residents, Ratepayers and Friends of Berwick Village, the National Trust and the landowner who wants them removed, Lawrence De La Rue — will return to the hearing on September 24. Mr De La Rue told the Weekly his wife was within two metres of being killed by a seven-metre branch that dropped from one of the trees four years ago. Recalling it makes him emotional. ‘‘Everybody wants me to put my family at risk. It’s akin to me dangling my grandchildren over the side in Western Port while the sharks are circling.’’ Members of Casey’s conservation advisory committee, who spent almost five years working on the tree register, are watching the debate with concern. Spotted gums are common throughout Casey’s public spaces, including shopping centre car parks, mainly because they are regarded as safe and useful street trees. ‘‘If these ones go, the door opens for anyone to ask for a spotted gum to be removed,’’ says Hampton Park resident Tony O’Hara, a member of the committee. While conspiracy theories abound, Mr O’Hara plumps for the alternative. ‘‘I think it was definitely a stuff-up. People inside the council just did not realise what was going on and they need to talk to one another. If they realise they’ve made a mistake and start to take note of the register before they make promises to anyone, then something will have been achieved out of the whole sorry mess.’’ At the council meeting, Cr Judy Owen, one of two council representatives on the conservation advisory committee, was anxious to stress that the protesters were not “greenies”. “They’re people who care about how we’re going to leave our bit of the world. They’ve used blood, sweat and tears to go out and form this area.” She said she could not understand why the council would value the opinion of a single resident over half a community that wanted to keep the trees and four arborists’ reports that stated the trees are healthy. She stressed it was not a Berwick issue. ‘‘It’s a Casey issue — we have to decide where we’re going next with trees.’’ Cr Geoff Ablett agrees. ‘‘This isn’t just an Old Coach Road issue,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘It’s a Casey issue. We got the planning wrong on trees. We shouldn’t be planting 200-feet gums, as good as they are. It’s just ridiculous.’’ He stresses that he’s not anti-tree. ‘‘I grew up in the country and I love trees. But I don’t want to put myself in the position of saying to someone these trees are safe and six months later there’s an injury. I don’t want it on my conscience. Even Mr De La Rue, who is scathing about what he referred to as ‘‘the nuffies’’, is a tree-lover. ‘‘I love trees, I care for the country — but there’s an appropriate place for trees.’’

A row of spotted gums in Old Coach Road has become a symbol of Casey Council’s problematic relationship with trees. CATHERINE WATSON spoke to the man who planted them in 1966. Pictures by ROB CAREW. t was a tree that sold Peter and Margot Lawton on Berwick. They had come to inspect a farm for sale and saw a huge old manna gum growing by the creek. Fifty-two years later, Mr Lawton’s face lights up at the memory of it. ‘‘We just looked at it and fell in love with the place.’’ It was raining and he ruined a new pair of street shoes climbing the hill to look at a view that stretched from Arthurs Seat to the You Yangs. After 21⁄2 years of searching, they knew they’d found the right place. That was 1958. Now aged 84, Mr Lawton is still living on Berwick Hill. The dairy farm is long gone, sold in the 1970s when milk prices crashed. Today he retains just half a hectare, enough for an experimental tree nursery. The foreground of that glorious view is now full of suburbs rather than farmland. Margot died only a couple of months ago. Much has changed but the one constant has been his love of growing beautiful trees, first as an amateur, later as a tree farmer, now as a tree researcher. Between 1958 and 1968 Mr Lawton planted well over 1000 trees on the farm as shelterbelts for his cows. Most of them remain and today form the spine of landscaping around the hill. ‘‘I feel proud to have helped create today’s landscape,’’ he says. He is saddened by Casey Council’s intention to remove 28 spotted gums on what is now Old Coach Road. He planted them in 1966 and says they are an important visual buffer to the ugliness of the transmission lines, transformers and cell phone towers on top of the hill. Mr Lawton says councils, Casey included, are struggling with trees: what to plant, what to pull out, how to determine which are dangerous. He would like to see Victoria follow the lead of NSW, which has appointed a leading teacher of arborists, Judy Fakes, as Commissioner of the NSW Environment Court to rule on tree disputes. The court has the power to summon conflicting parties and even to jail people. He says the first step is to get rid of the trees that should never have been planted and the trees that were faulty when they were planted and will become dangerous if they survive. In a subdivision just down the road from him the trees are falling over in their seventh or eight year. He found they all had circled rootballs, indicating they were pot-bound when they were planted. ‘‘I feel sorry for councils that inherit these

Familiar sight: The row of 28 spotted gums is a Berwick landmark. disasters when the developers walk away.’’ It’s not a trivial problem — Mr Lawton estimates the cost of tree failure at more than $100 million a year across Australia. He has been personally affected. On one occasion his tree farm business planted 10,000 trees bought from a reputable supplier. They all failed, costing him about $1 million. Much of his work since then has been directed at improving the technology and practice of tree propagation and planting. From his tree nursery, he and colleague Ann Keys produce about 2000 seedlings a year, most of which go to Hume Council, which is carrying out major planting

trials. He has patented a range of pots now winning favour with some of Australia’s major botanical gardens. This month he heads off to China with a Victoria state trade mission to try to sell one of his patents to raise money to do more research. ‘‘R&D has become a habit, and it’s as expensive as any other habit,’’ he says. The strange thing, he says, is that we were growing better trees 50 years ago than we are today. Proof of that is in the Old Coach Road spotted gums, growing straight and true 46 years after they were planted. ‘‘If you get the first 25 days of the tree right, the remaining 100 years will be easy.’’

INBRIEF Councillors weigh up options Casey mayor Sam Aziz says he has not yet decided whether he will seek re-election to Casey Council. Cr Aziz told the Weekly he would talk with his family and a number of people before deciding whether to continue on the council. Councillors Geoff Ablett, Bev Hastie and Kevin Bradford are also considering their options. Former councillor Rob Wilson has announced he will stand for Four Oaks Ward. Mr Wilson lost the seat in 2008.

several dogs and others were surrendered by their owners. A number of owners were prosecuted for failing to register dogs. One owner was the man involved in the breeding ring and he pleaded guilty to 15 charges under the Domestic Animals Act.

Stingrays celebrate too soon BY BRAD McGRATH DANDENONG Stingrays were like the antsy home brewer who cracked the first stubby before the ale was ready. For three quarters of Saturday’s qualifying final the Stingrays were brewing nicely against Gippsland Power and appeared headed for a preliminary final. Young star Lachie Whitfield was showing the football public why he has long been touted the No. 1 draft pick. The midfield was dominant and they had winners up forward and down back. That was when they cracked the first stubby — about 30 minutes early. At the final change the Stingrays were 34 points in front; by full time they had failed to add to their score and the Power had booted 7.3 for the term to run out 11-point victors. Stingrays coach Graham Yeats was fuming. He declined the opportunity to talk about the capitulation. Instead, assistant coach Craig Black fronted the media. ‘‘It’s obviously a disappointing result. I thought we played good footy for about three quarters and it’s pretty obvious they outworked us in the last quarter, but we’ve got another week so we’ll go back to the drawing board,’’ Black said. ‘‘Three quarters were really good, so we’ll look at the positive side of things and get back to it.’’ The Stingrays now face an elimination semi-final against neighbours Oakleigh Chargers at Visy Park, Carlton this Sunday at 1.45pm. The Stingrays will be sweating on the fitness of Whitfield, who came off in the last quarter with a foot ailment which he was icing after the game.

INBRIEF Eagles add talent Cranbourne hopes its two big signings will be enough to propel it past last season’s third place finish in the DDCA turf 2 competition. The Eagles should be stronger with both bat and ball, after signing former NZ under 19 representative Te Ahu Davis, as well as former West Gippsland Cricket Association best and fairest Ben Maroney. Both come with big reputations, the 26-year-old Davis ‘‘taking a stack of wickets in England’’ and Maroney topping the batting averages in the WGCA. Sadly for the club, Ross Woodall has taken an assistant coaching job at Casey-South Melbourne. Meanwhile, neighbour Lynbrook has poached Shane D’Rosario from Buckley Ridges as its new captain-coach. He replaces Prabath Fonsenka.

Day on the green

Fade out: Dandenong Stingray Clayton McCartney booted a great goal in their narrow TAC Cup loss to Gippsland Power on Saturday. Picture: Marco De Luca Black said Nathan Wright is some chance to return from injury for the clash. While it was a heartbreaking loss for the Stingrays, adding to their disappointing finals record, there were plenty of positives. For the bulk of the game they were cohesive, well drilled, skilled and tackling like madmen. The Stingrays kicked 4.5 to zip in the opening term with Billy Hartung running riot. The Stingrays could have been fur-

ther in front if it wasn’t for relatively easy misses to Clayton McCartney, who kicked a brilliant goal earlier in the term, and Matt Rennie. It was clear the Power had received a rocket from coach Nick Stevens at quarter time and they lifted their intensity in the second term. They had cut the margin to four goals by half-time with two highlights, both involving Mornington product Whitfield. A strong mark to Ryan MarksLogan at half-back and a flowing

piece of play down the ground resulted in Whitfield marking and easily converting. The second was pure brilliance. Whitfield got the ball in the forward pocket, ignoring the intense pressure and spotting his mate Hartung with a deft snap kick into the corridor. The third quarter provided few highlights with the Stingrays kicking 3.6 to 1.2. While it’s not certain if Yeats is a home brewer, there was certainly a bitter taste in his mouth.

Cranbourne Bowls Club hosted its weekly pairs tournament on Friday. The players hardy enough to brave the testing conditions included Sofio Raiti and Irene Shaw, who had a 15-shot win over Barb Fulton and John Bartley. As the club officially opened the bowling season last weekend, the triples tournament had bowlers wearing club uniform. The tournament conditions were two games of 13 ends, with one game played on a grass green and the other on the synthetic green. Overall winners were the combination of Barry Thomas, Jack Wylie and Mel Cassano with a 15-shot win. Runners-up were the team of Stan Burnett, Tom Bonney and Kevin Eldridge and best last game winners were Harry Van Soest, Bert Romejin and Theo Van Schalm. A total of 54 bowlers competde in the weekly Wednesday tournament, but there are spots available to any interested bowlers. Call the club on 5996 1272 to enter.

Scorpions lose first final

Three-pointer saves the day for Rangers THE South East Australian Basketball League east men’s conference title came down to one shot at Dandenong Stadium on Saturday night. One contested, uncertain three-point shot from Dandenong Rangers import Daequon Montreal, a centre whose three-point shooting percentage ranked eighth on the team coming into the conference final against Geelong Supercats. But with the Supercats leading 72-70 with 18 seconds remaining and the shot clock winding down, Montreal was left with a potential gamewinner from in front of the visitor’s bench and had to take it. It went in, sending a near capacity stadium into raptures. In Montreal’s own words, it “felt good all the way” as the Rangers took a 73-72 lead, leaving the

Supercats with the last play of the game to take the win. After a Supercats’ miss, centre Sebastian Loader pulled in the offensive rebound but before he could do anything with the ball, Rangers guard Lucas Barker stole it from his hands, then avoided the Supercats’ desperate attempts to foul before being unceremoniously shouldered to the ground by Supercats forward Dominic Friend with 0.2 seconds remaining. Barker missed his second shot deliberately, only for Rangers forward Tony Lewis to tip in the miss on the buzzer to give the Rangers a 75-72 win and the SEABL east conference title. The Rangers will face south conference winners Albury-Wodonga Bandits for the SEABL championship at the State Basketball Centre, Wantirna South,

this Saturday at 3pm. Montreal, who was in doubt for the game after spending the past two weeks recovering from an ankle injury, said he was proud to make the title-winning shot. “I knew we needed someone to get a shot,” he said. “The shot clock was low and I had to take it.’’ ■ Dandenong Rangers women want to seal their place as the most successful team in South East Australian Basketball League women’s history when they play for a third straight championship this Saturday. The Rangers won their third straight east conference title on Saturday night with an 86-47 win over Geelong Supercats at Dandenong Stadium. They will face Knox Raiders, the team they beat in last year’s decider, at the State Basketball Centre in Wantirna South on Saturday at 1pm.

Casey Scorpions face a straight-sets finals exit after losing to Werribee by 18 points in the Victorian Football League qualifying final at Casey Fields yesterday. The Scorpions lost 6.10 (46) to 3.10 (28). After finishing the regular season as minor premiers, the Scorpions face an elimination semifinal against Williamstown at Casey Fields on Saturday at 2.10pm. The Scorpions trailed by just four points at the final change but the Tigers booted two goals to zero in the final term to seal the win. With AFL-affiliate Melbourne’s season now over, the Scorpions are likely to regain several senior players — including young forward Jack Fitzpatrick — for Saturday’s clash. Williamstown knocked out Bendigo while Port Melbourne will join Werribee in the preliminary finals.

Eagles storm into semis

Season over for Beacy

BY BRAD McGRATH

BERWICK has again defeated arch rival Beaconsfield, this time in the MPNFL Casey Cardinia League elimination final yesterday. The coaching tenure of Beaconsfield’s Austinn Jones was brought to a an end as the Wickers slammed on four goals to none in the third term to waltz away with a 14.10 (94) to 6.9 (45) win. Jones has signed as coach of VFL team Bendigo Gold next season. The Wickers now clash with Tooradin-Dalmore in Sunday’s elimination semi-final. The Eagles’ first half was summed up with Kris Fletcher giving away a 50-metre penalty followed by another 50 metres after Rob Taylor then argued the decision, much to Jones’s chagrin. Both sides missed early chances in the second half. Youngster Jordy Andrews booted the first of the second half to extend the Wickers lead to 26 points. Nathan Waite then booted his third, after missing one moments before, after a strong mark. The Wickers’ greater commitment to the contest was telling, Waite and Andrews both receiving plenty of the opportunities from influential defender Bryce Rutherford and midfielder Madison Andrews. Waite’s fourth goal extended the margin to 39 points and Andrews’ third and fourth ensured the Wickers would advance in the finals, going into the final term with a 50-point lead. The big difference between the teams was the dominant forwards of the Wickers while no Eagle kicked multiple goals. Luke Bee-Hugo and Taylor both battled hard for Beacy but their lack of a dominant key forward was telling. Wickers coach Dean Rice said conditions suited his fast-running side. ‘‘The guys really stood up today,’’ he said. ‘‘The conditions suited us. We’re a pretty young team and the way we like to play is to run on the top of the ground and move the ball quickly and get it into our forward line.’’

CRANBOURNE has set up the inevitable with a crushing 91-point victory over Tooradin-Dalmore at Robinson Oval on Saturday. The Eagles’ sheer weight of talent proved too much for the Seagulls and the premier boasted 44 scoring shots in the 22.22 (154) to 9.9 (63) victory. The huge win means Cranbourne faces a blockbuster semi-final against premiership favourite Narre Warren at Pakenham on Saturday. Eagles coach Doug Koop said the key to knocking off Narre Warren was being more committed and keeping a close check on its better players. ‘‘We think about each other a fair bit and it’s one win each. They’ve got a very good side and will have to do the same against us. ‘‘Hopefully,we can put more pressure on them than they can put on us.’’ It was always going to be an uphill battle for Tooradin-Dalmore against Cranbourne, despite clearly being the third best team in the competition this year. Despite Sam Watson doing a superb job on champion full forward Marc Holt, limiting him to four goals, the Eagles found another forward with Michael Theodoridis booting five majors. Star Seagulls midfielders Matt Wade and Beau Miller were both superb but Eagles’ guns Ray George and Matt Thompson were equally as impressive. For every strong performance from a Seagull, there were two Eagles who did the same task. ‘‘We pressured them for the best part of four quarters,’’ said Koop. ‘‘We were pretty even right across the board and our midfielders started off really well — Tooradin were super competitive early and withstood us but slowly and surely we squeezed them.’’ Cranbourne led by just eight points at quarter-time but a 7.8 to 3.1 second term meant the clash was all but over by the long change.

Koop was particularly pleased with the return of Andre Young from injury, with the defender holding Julian Suarez to three majors and a handful of kicks.

Hallinan was disappointed with the performance but said the Eagles were just a class team who deserved the victory. He said the damage could have been

greater if it wasn’t for his back line. ‘‘The scoreline probably flattered us in a lot of ways,’’ he said. ‘‘Our back line was very good form most of the day.’’

Outclassed Seagulls may turn to young guns for answers TOORADIN-Dalmore coach Tom Hallinan has floated several changes for the Seagulls’ door-die final against Berwick at Berwick on Sunday. The Seagulls’ listless 91-point loss to Cranbourne left Hallinan searching for a solution and praising the talents of Doug Koop’s Eagles. ‘‘It was Murphy’s law I guess — what could go wrong did go wrong,’’ Hallinan said.

‘‘The first quarter was all that we gave — unfortunately we were just overwhelmed by a hell of a lot slicker, more experienced unit. ‘‘Maybe it’s first-time finals blues We’re the novices in the finals and Cranbourne have been there before and maybe it showed.’’ Hallinan said his team was devoid of run and carry against the reigning premier, with youngster Jake Genoni a chance for a recall.

‘‘We looked old and tiresome and partly because we were overwhelmed with the footy, and you can look terrible when the opposition does that to you,’’ he said. ‘‘Jake will come in and play across halfforward and we’ll look at another couple. We need some energy and leg speed into the team.’’ The Seagulls have beaten this season and will start warm favourites to advance and take on the

loser of the Cranbourne-Narre Warren blockbuster. Hallinan said he was keen for his team to not be remembered for its disappointing first-up finals performance after promising so much this season. ‘‘The result yesterday was an aberration and we only had one performance like that compared to the rest of the season,’’ he said. — Brad McGrath
