‘We’re not cash cows’

COVER: Mixed martial arts is is catching on through specialist gyms run by trainers such as Cris Brown (right), absorbing a kick from Jordan Cameron. Page 8 Picture: Gary Sissons

BY CATHERINE WATSON ON paper, Peter White is a multimillionaire but that doesn’t help much when it comes to paying an $85,000 rates bill. His beef farm, on an 80-hectare farm called Tulliallen in Berwick-Clyde Road, was marginal, he said, and the rates bill pushed it into the red. ‘‘It means we’re going to start eating into capital just to keep going.’’ Eighteen years ago, he and his family moved from the outskirts of Berwick to Cranbourne North to escape the rapidly encroaching suburbia. ‘‘I thought this place would see us out,’’ he said. Now he wonders how much longer they can keep going. In 1995, the rates were about $5000. In 2010-11, after the property was included in the urban growth zone, the rates went up to $33,000. This year the bill is $85,000. ‘‘It’s just ridiculous,’’ Mr Smith said. ‘‘The average rate is about $1200 and we’re paying about 70 times that.’’ Five minutes down the road, market gardener Charlie Tuosto is facing the same challenge on a different scale: last year the rates bill for his two-hectare Clyde property rose from $1800 to $2900. While he can manage this year’s bill, he’s worried the bills might keep rising at the same rate and force him off the property, where he has grown spring onions for 20 years. ‘‘You tell the council from me,’’ Mr Tuosto said, ‘‘the primary producers have a hard time making a living. They need to look after them.’’ With housing estates rapidly approaching from the east and west, Mr White acknowledges his property is probably worth between $30 million and $40 million. Many landowners were happy to accept offers from developers. Not so the Whites. ‘‘Our kids grew up here, three of them were married here. The way we feel — we’ve got a beautiful place and we just want to stay here.’’

Call to account: Charlie Tuosto says a 60 per cent rate increase is a concern.

Slim pickings, bloated rates CAPPING rates on farms will be considered by Casey councillors as they try to slow an exodus of farmers from land in the urban growth zone. Rate bills have doubled and even trebled since the then Labor state government rezoned about 7000 hectares of Casey’s agricultural land for housing in 2010. Last year, the council campaigned unsuccessfully to persuade the new Liberal government to exclude about 1500 hectares of prime agricultural land from the zone. Officially, the council still supports the development of an intensive irrigated food production zone to be known as the Bunyip

food belt. But farmers say that in practice ballooning farm rates are forcing them to sell up. Cr Gary Rowe said the pressure was on to find a solution within the next few weeks, before the council’s 2013-14 budget was set. A briefing paper with options will be presented to councillors this month. Options include introducing a differential rate for farms, deferring the bill until the property is sold or giving grants to farmers who stay. Cr Rowe said councillors had to weigh up the impact on residential rates. ‘‘Any discount to farmers has to be paid for by someone else.’’

Are you angry that we are going to pay more for our water and sewerage? If you are not angry, you should be, because the extra costs will go into someone else’s pocket. Ever since Jeff Kennett made the foolish move of privatising utilities, we have had nothing but rising costs, because private consortiums have to make a profit to pay shareholders a dividend. If you can’t afford to pay your water bill, what are you going to do? You can’t catch and store enough water to keep you in water and you don’t have a big enough garden for a septic system, which you will also need, as you won’t be able to afford sewerage. Also, apply this to electricity. If retailers keep putting up the price to keep their shareholders sweet, how will you run your fridge, TV, pump, lights, heating, cooling, etc, as there is no alternative to electricity? You can’t run your TV on gas. Lastly, there is the service charge, which we never had before privatisation. This is used by the private consortiums to get around the government’s attempts to freeze the utility price by saying it costs more for services. I am not saying privatisation is wrong in every

case, just in water, sewerage and electricity for which there is no alternative. We have to do something about this. Sitting back and hoping it will go away doesn’t work. Any ideas? Maurice Quinn, Cranbourne East

Re ‘Sitting tight on straight and narrow’ When we moved into the area over 10 years ago, we had low-rise kerbs. I understood this was so people could park on their nature strip, especially on narrow roads where cars can barely pass each other, let alone a parked car. I have witnessed emergency cars barely able to get past cars parked on residential roads. Don’t get me started on the new estates, crammed full of houses that barely have room for one car in the drive. Where are those cars supposed to park? As a safety issue, I have more problem going around blind corners from shrubs and bushes then parked cars on nature strips — plants that the council have planted then neglected. Most people park on nature strips with common sense, where the council has none whatsoever. Good luck to Cr Rowe in getting this amended at Thursday’s council meeting for the residents of Casey.

VicRoads moves to end crawl

Lyndhurst freight hub work begins


WORK has started on a 180-hectare ‘inland port’ at Lyndhurst, with direct access to the Cranbourne rail line and the Western Port Highway. A spokeswoman for Salta Properties said the container freight hub, named Portlink, was designed to service the ports of Melbourne and Hastings. The Weekly asked Salta if the state government had provided any assurance of a rail link from Melbourne or Hastings but did not receive a direct response. The spokeswoman said the company would work closely with local and state governments to develop the project, including seeking planning approval for a rail link, but it could operate on a road-only basis. The site is next to the Western Port Highway between Bayliss and Glasscocks roads, Dandenong South. Earthworks are almost completed for the first stage of 26 hectares, with a further 50 hectares to follow. When completed, there will be about 75 hectares of warehouses on site. The spokeswoman said Salta Properties’ inland ports alliance partner, Qube, would be the anchor tenant. The first warehouses are expected to be built next year.

VICROADS has moved to reserve land for a long-awaited upgrade of Thompsons Road and the intersection with Western Port Highway. Getting through the intersection is a daily ordeal for thousands of Cranbourne and Lyndhurst commuters, with traffic often banked up for several hundred metres in peak periods. VicRoads regional director Peter Todd told the Weekly that it was investigating the possible future upgrade of Thompsons Road between Dandenong-Frankston Road and the South Gippsland Highway, including a grade-separated interchange at Western Port Highway. He said VicRoads had recently introduced a public acquisition overlay into planning schemes to ensure that sufficient land was reserved to accommodate any such upgrade. Proposals for the duplication and gradeseparated interchange would be considered for funding through future budget processes, he said. All eyes will be on tomorrow’s state budget to see if funds are allocated for preliminary planning works. The intersection is second on Casey Council’s priorities for intersection upgrades. Cr Gary Rowe said the duplication of Thomp-

No go: Commuters on Thompsons Road during the morning peak hour face a long wait as they approach the intersection of Western Port Highway. sons Road was top of his budget wish-list, followed by more Casey bus services. Design plans for the interchange, produced for VicRoads, show the bulk of works will occur west of the highway, minimising the need for

private property acquisitions. However, those plans do not include a proposed rail freight link between the Port of Hastings and Dandenong South, which is expected to run down the eastern side.

RSL memorial dream takes flight BY NARELLE COULTER IN an Australian first, members of the defence forces killed in training accidents will soon have a permanent memorial in Cranbourne. A dedicated band of volunteers has quietly been restoring a Macchi MB326 in a shed off Station Street. When it’s finished, the aeroplane will be mounted on a pylon outside the Cranbourne RSL. The memorial will also feature an original Howitzer cannon, a garden and plaque. Cranbourne RSL president John Wells said the memorial would honour those who had died in training accidents on home and foreign soil. ‘‘There is no memorial to all those killed in training accidents. Accidents happen every year. You don’t hear about the the jack that collapses in a workshop and a guy is killed. ‘‘They die in the uniform of this country and in the service of this country and should be remembered.’’ Mr Wells said the ‘‘flimsy’’ Macchi

seemed an appropriate symbol when the idea for the memorial was first mooted eight years ago. Inscribed on the side of the plane will be the names of seven RAN pilots who died flying Macchis in Australia. The aeroplane was recreated using parts from the skeletons of three Macchi MB-326s bought by the RSL. While predominantly used as a training aircraft for the RAAF, the Italian-designed Macchis were also employed for training by the navy. During the 1960s Australia built its own Macchis at Fishermans Bend. Leading the restoration project is Cranbourne’s Robin Hiern. ‘‘He’s an absolute artist. Some of the bolts he made for us slide in firmly. It’s just amazing,’’ Mr Wells said. Mr Hiern has worked closely with fellow volunteers Kevin Dean and John Richardson. Mr Hiern was busy spray-painting the fuselage of the Macchi in the blue and white of the RAN when the Weekly spoke to him.

Flying high: Robin Hiern is helping restore a Macchi MB-326, which will be mounted on display outside the Cranbourne RSL. ‘‘This is certainly the largest project I’ve taken on in size. I’m used to working on cars and model aeroplanes. ‘‘However, I do love aeroplanes.’’ Australia had 97 Macchi MB-326h aircraft, Mr Hiern said. The first was

handed over to the RAAF in October 1967 and the last in September 1972. They had a wing span of 10.57 metres and a maximum speed of 806km/h. ‘‘Our Macchi will probably weigh about 1200 kilos as it has no internal

gear or engine,’’ Mr Hiern said. ‘‘The engine was a Bristol Sidderly Viper jet engine from England. We also made those under licence.’’ Mr Hiern has aviation engineering in his blood. His parents met while making parts for Bristol Beaufort bombers at the Newport railway workshops during World War II. Mr Wells said the Macchi would be a ‘‘book-end’’ to the UH-1 Huey DustOff medevac helicopter mounted outside the Dandenong RSL. Discussions are in train with the Pakeham sub-branch for a third memorial. For Mr Wells the opening of the memorial will mark the end of the eight-year project. It will also be an intensely personal moment. ‘‘After I came home a friend in Vietnam was killed in an accident. He got two lines in that morning’s paper. He was a great bloke and would have been PM. I’ve been bitter and twisted ever since. ‘‘It’s very important that these victims are remembered.’’

BY CATHERINE WATSON SIX patrons have lost their local watering holes being banned from Casey’s hotels, bars and night clubs for anti-social behaviour. The ban orders, ranging from a month to a year, are the first issued under the Casey Liquor Accord, signed 18 months ago by licensees, the police and Casey Council. The head of Casey police area Inspector Wayne Viney said the banned patrons were all alleged to have assaulted other patrons, staff, security personnel or police, mostly at late-night venues. None of the banned patrons has been charged so far, but all incidents are under police investigation. Inspector Viney said that in the past, individual bars or hotels could ban violent or aggressive patrons but they would simply move to other premises. He said he hoped the collective bans would send a strong message. ‘‘If you want to muck up at one night club, don’t think the night club up the road will let you in next week. ‘‘The licensees don’t care about losing business — they’re interested in stopping

Flying fists, flailing feet From atop a high horse, mixed martial arts looks like nothing more than street brawling. But there’s more to fighting than meets the eye. DANIEL TRAN investigates the science behind brutality. Pictures: Gary Sissons OR the most part, this violence is a quiet affair. That dull thump is the sound of a fist meeting flesh. The short, sharp slapping sound a foot kicking against a thigh. And that whooshing sound? That is air being pounded out of lungs. Strangely, there is no yelling or shouting. No bluffing. This is combat science at work. Every blow is a cold and calculated move that is a testament to the control wielded by the thinkers, not thugs, that execute them. Beneath what appears to be the unbridled savagery of the sport known as mixed martial arts, there’s a rhyme and reason. Above an army disposals store on the Nepean Highway in Cheltenham, one of Melbourne’s premier mixed martial arts stables conducts a brutal training regimen that conditions its fighters how to fight smart. The club, Adrenaline MMA and Fitness, is the project of five-time Olympian Cris Brown and is quickly proving itself to be a key player on the Victorian fight scene with a swag of wins. Brown, arguably the nation’s most successful wrestler and a mixedmartial arts fighter with two wins, one loss and one no-contest, is a coach, mentor and friend to the young men who line up to test their courage up to five times a week. He attributes the meteoric rise of mixed martial arts to the establishment of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The championship, known among the masses as UFC, was established in 1993 as a way of determining which martial arts style was the most superior. The advent of the competition is tied to the evolution of mixed martial arts, which soon became the standard for the competition. ‘‘It’s every boy’s dream, and every guy who watches it wants to do it. And this gives them an opportunity,’’ Brown says. Mixed-martial arts competitions are now organised around the world on local and national levels. In the seventh months since Adrenaline MMA and Fitness opened, the mixed-martial arts class has grown to about 50 students — the fastest in the gym. The goal of mixed martial arts is to knock out an opponent or to force them to submit using a choke-hold or joint lock, or win via a judges’ decision. Mixed martial arts is demanding: the fitness and high-skill set required to fight for 15 minutes with two minutes of rest in between rounds is enough to floor even the most compet-

Slugging it out: Aidan Aguilera (left) and Jordan Cameron prepare for an upcoming fight. ent athletes. Fighters must be wellrounded in three sports: kickboxing, wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Brown is unlike many of the coaches on the Australian fighting scene. While a high number refuse to let their students train at other gyms out of pride, or perhaps fear that they will be exposing trade ‘secrets’, Brown openly sends his fighters to other experts or holds seminars with world-class coaches. Being a wrestler, he believes his students should learn any advanced kicking or punching with the best. But the grappling aspect of the game, which Brown excels in, is held inhouse. In addition to representing Australia in wrestling for about 16 years, Brown also holds a black-belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, which takes about a decade to achieve. He can throw people, break their joints or crush errant windpipes as easily as he breathes — something he imparts to his fighters, who, as a result, have become known for their grappling skills. But just because they have the skills does not mean they use them erratically. Every technique has a time and place. ‘‘If you’re not controlled you will not last one five-minute round. Your fitness level just wont take it. These are very controlled athletes,’’ Brown says. ‘‘Jumping into a ring and

On his toes: Coach Cris Brown holds the pads as Jordan Cameron practices a head kick. facing someone is just an art in itself. Anybody who has ever done it will know that it’s something they’ll never experience anywhere else. I’ve been to five Olympics. I’ve never experienced anything like the first time I fought.’’ At the end of March, Glen Waverley’s Aidan Aguilera won his third mixed-martial arts fight using the skills Brown has imparted. The 22-year-old motion graphics artist and editor is a testament to the intellectual nature of the sport. ‘‘There are guys who go in there and just swing for the fences and rage, but they don’t get very far. It takes more than that. It’s not just about the viol-

ence because if someone’s just coming in there bringing violence, eventually they’re going to come across someone who’s better (than) them technically,’’ he said. Aguilera has been training in mixed martial arts for seven years. ‘‘I honestly believe it makes you a better human being if you take it the right way. It forces you to confront fears and weaknesses yourself and you can’t lie to yourself about it while you’re in there. There’s plenty of guys who do afterwards ... but while you’re in there, if you’re lying to yourself, you’re going to get hurt. ‘‘It’s a pretty crazy experience.

You’ve got to focus on what you’re doing otherwise you can end up getting hurt because at the end of the day, you’re playing a game with your health. I guess it’s just kind of overcoming your own doubts while simultaneously defending yourself.’’ Aguilera spends most of his evenings at Adrenaline, constantly conditioning his body and honing his skills. Most of the fighters, like Aguilera, follow the adage, ‘Train hard, fight easy’. Monday nights, run by coach Travers Grubb, are the worst. ‘‘Travers takes Monday night... and he does it for a reason,’’ Brown says. ‘‘He just gets in there and he flogs the hell out of them. They have nightmares over Monday. It gives you the rest of the week to really work on your techniques and everything else, but you really (have) that day to throw up. ‘‘If they’re going to fight, they’ve got to have that base. Every minute in a fight is like a week’s training. You cannot substitute that match fitness.’’ As Jordan Cameron walked from the change room to the ring at his most recent fight, for the first time everything was not a blur. ‘‘I was there, I was myself, I just felt normal,’’ he says. Cameron has a record of four wins, zero losses and a draw. The ring has become an extension of the gym and no longer makes him apprehensive. As one of Brown’s proteges, he is the epitome of his coach’s fighting philosophy. ‘‘There’s strategy to it,’’ he says. ‘‘It is a bit of a brawl but there are tactics to it. You have to be smart. You’ve got to know when to fight, when to relax, when to catch your breath and when to turn it into a brawl.’’ And if your senses escape you? ‘‘You’ll end up getting bashed or you’ll get tired and you’ll probably lose.’’ The 22-year-old nursing student is constantly in training. ‘‘It’s become my purpose in life,’’ he says. ‘‘If I have a day off, I just feel lost.’’


Turning grief into goodwill

Jobs loss ‘a worry’ over surgery delay


CASEY residents fear losing their jobs as they wait for surgery at Casey Hospital, says Narre Warren South MP Judith Graley. The Labor MP said while hospital staff were doing a great job with limited resources, she received a constant stream of complaints about the hospital — ‘‘people shouldn’t have to ring their local MP to get surgery’’. The latest hospital performance report at Casey Hospital showed 2024 people were waiting for surgery, up from 1841 in December 2010. Ms Graley was joined at the hospital last week by Labor leader Daniel Andrews and Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan. Mr Andrews called on the government to invest in the hospital to match growth in the area. ‘‘At the last election we promised $30 million for 30 new beds and a surgical theatre. It just make sense to provide these, given the growth in the area.’’ He said data from the Australian Health and Welfare Institute last month showed there were 36 fewer hospital beds in Victoria after the government’s first full year. Before the 2010 election, the Coalition promised 800 additional hospital beds in its first term of government. — Chad Van Estrop

Biggest Morning Tea Fleetwood’s morning tea is one of several hundred that will be held across Casey this month. Last year, 247 hosts in Casey got together with friends, family or colleagues for a morning tea and raised $77,352 to help fight cancer. In addition to supporting

Victoria’s brightest cancer researchers, funds raised will help support more than 900 Casey residents diagnosed with cancer each year. The Biggest Morning Tea is on May 23, but hosts can hold an event at any time during the month. To register your morning tea, text TEA to 0400 867 867 or visit


NO one knows the importance of finding cures for cancer better than Jacqui, whose mother died on Easter Sunday, just five weeks after she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Out of her own grief, the 12-year-old Fleetwood Primary School pupil came up with a purpose: to raise funds for research into bone cancer. She and her best friend Emily approached school principal Kerry Coffey, who suggested they help with the school’s Biggest Morning Tea, an annual fund-raiser for cancer research. Ms Coffey said the whole school community had been shocked by the loss of Sue, the mother of Jacqui and her younger brother, James. ‘‘We don’t normally involve the children in the Biggest Morning Tea but Jacqui wanted to contribute to a cure for the disease that left her without her mother. She wanted to try and make a difference.’’ With the approval of the school council, Jacqui and Emily visited every class to talk about cancer and the importance of finding better cures. On Thursday, May 23 there will be a morning tea in the staff room for the school community and pupils will share morning tea in their classrooms. Jacqui said she was pleased to play her part in the fight against cancer.

INBRIEF Manslaughter charge A 40-year-old Dandenong man was charged with manslaughter after a man died from injuries allegedly sustained in a fight in Cranbourne. Glenn Carleton appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday and was remanded in custody to appear again on August 23. Police allege Carleton and another man got in a fight with the victim at a house in Cranbourne on April 14 and Carleton and the other man disposed of the body the next day. Carleton was arrested on Wednesday and led police to the body in an overgrown ditch between the M3 EastLink and Worsley Road in Carrum Downs.

Allure of the theatre he magic of theatre started for Georgie Saunders the moment she walked into the famous Spiegeltent in Melbourne. ‘‘It was so much bigger on the inside than the outside,’’ said the Cranbourne East Secondary College drama student, still buzzing several weeks after her class visit. For her classmate Marcus Tirptsis, the magic was in watching the Impro Melbourne actors at work, followed by a workshop with the group. ‘‘It was an eye-opener to see how they interact on stage. I learnt so much. ‘‘There’s such a huge difference, not just between amateur and professional but between the age groups.’’ Tahlia Timoney was also staggered by the skill of the actors. ‘‘They could improvise anything and make it happen and they didn’t need to explain it. They were exhausted at the end of it — they put so much into their performance.’’ The school’s drama co-ordinator, Genelle Lentini, said the program had been life-changing for some students.


Playing it for laughs: Clockwise from front, Georgie Saunders, Sam Kelly, Tahlia Timoney, Jason Danielides and Marcus Tirptsis. Picture: Catherine Watson

Experience the excitement of Frankston’s D SERVICE


‘‘They loved it. It was the first time they had seen a professional production and the first time they’d been into the Arts Centre.’’ The experience was made possible by a program called First Call, funded by Arts Centre Melbourne donors, which subsidises students from regional and disadvantaged areas to see live performance at the Arts Centre. Ms Lentini said the skills the students learned from their visit were flowing through into their own drama work, including this year’s production of Wizard of Oz. Arts Centre spokesman Tim Jones said more than 100,000 regional students had visited theatres, galleries, museums and libraries since the subsidised arts program started. ‘‘I would love to spread the word to the wider Cranbourne area.’’ For more information on Arts Centre programs for schools, call Tim Jones on 9281 8526 or email tim.jones

Slick teamwork propels Rays DANDENONG Stingrays are on the verge of the TAC Cup top four after defeating Murray Bushrangers by 50 points at Shepley Oval on Saturday. The Stingrays dominated every quarter in their most complete performance of the season to win 13.9 (87) to 5.7 (37) and move into fifth position. Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats praised his team’s performance but warned there would be further tests ahead with the under-18 nationals looming and the unavailability of the Stingrays’ private school contingent. ‘‘As the game went on I felt we continued to build on last week’s effort . . . we had a few more changes this week and at this time of the year and over the next month or so we really get to see what future we have next year and the depth needed if players go down this year.’’ The Stingrays had several standouts including small forward Clayton McCartney, who returned to form with five majors. Yeats said it wasn’t just McCartney’s goals that pleased him. “I was happy with those guys who came in and played their roles. Clay [McCartney] was good with five goals, but more pleasing was his work off the ball, something we’ve been working with him.” The Stingrays took a 10-point lead into the second term and soon extended it when Dale Gawley kicked a major. The Bushies responded soon after but the pivotal move came soon after when Yeats switched Jack Lonie and Blake Mullane into the midfield to add to some pace. Captain Nathan Foote and Kyle Gray mopped up any Bushies’ forward movements and McCartney capitalised up front to extend the margin to 32 points by the long change. The Bushrangers lifted in the third with both teams booting three goals, but the likes of Alex Harnett, Sam Crawford and Jake Gain went up another notch in the final term as the Stingrays extended the margin. Stingrays talent manager Mark Wheeler said the result showed they have a bright future. “We, like other regions, had a fair few out with injury and private school commitments. It’s great to give opportunities to others,’’ he said. ‘‘It is pleasing for us as a club because it puts pressure on those out injured or others to retain their spots.” “To keep Murray to only five goals, three after half-time showed the back six had a strong play in the team’s performance today. All our forwards featured in today’s goal-kickers. It also shows we started to work a little more as a team, which we haven’t done to date.” The TAC Cup has a general bye this weekend because of the trial match between Vic Metro and Vic Country on Mother’s Day.

Swans shuffle coaching staff A SHAKE-UP in the Casey-South Melbourne coaching ranks has resulted in assistant Brett Lewis being elevated into the Swans’ top job. The Swans were set to announce Damien Wright as captain-coach for next season but the former Victorian star has been given an assistant coaching role with Tasmania. Wright will also coach the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League, meaning his playing career is likely to be over. Lewis had been working closely with Wright and fellow assistants Chris Hall and Rob Elston before being thrust into the senior coaching role. Swans secretary Ross Hibbins said Lewis had been the obvious candidate after Wright moved on, with Hall and Elston set to continue playing. “He won’t be playing, but the reality is that the three guys will be working very closely together as a team and Brett has been heavily involved in developing the players,” he said. The changes to the Swans’ coaching panel also included director of coaching Mark Ridgway, who was forced to stand down to avoid a conflict with his duties as a Victorian selector. “There is a policy in place that there is no direct connection with Premier Cricket clubs,” Hibbins said. Lewis is highly regarded at the Swans for his work on developing young players and has been involved in the club’s pathways program. “He is very much into biomechanics and that aspect of things,” Hibbins said. Star all-rounder Clive Rose has departed the club after scoring a contract with Tasmania. Rose was overlooked for a Victorian contract despite making his Sheffield Shield debut last season and showing promising signs. ‘‘We’re obviously very happy for him,’’ Hibbins said. — Brad McGrath

Lean patch, but Cavs see the positives CASEY Cavaliers dropped their third successive Big V basketball division 2 clash with a six-point loss to Melton at Melton Indoor Recreation Centre on Saturday night. But Cavs coach Stewart Baird said it wasn’t all doom and gloom for his team and believes they are close to turning the corner after the hardfought 70-76 loss. ‘‘It’s obviously disappointing but when you lose games in a row you look for signs that there is improvement,’’ he said. ‘‘Going into the fourth quarter we were up by two or three points but they continued to work really hard and we had a couple of mental blocks.’’ Several key statistics told the tale.

Melton scored 13 points as a direct result from a Cavs turnover; the home team also pulled down 18 offensive rebounds. ‘‘If we cut that by a third we would have won the game,’’ Baird said. Baird said the positives to come out of the match were plentiful with Ash Szalek (12 points, 11 rebounds) battling hard against strong opposition. He said Dylan Wayman lifted after having a downer in their previous match and Stephen Michalski also contributed. ‘‘We brought Dylan on halfway through the first quarter and he took just seven shots and ended up with 14 points. It’s great when a player clearly has a bad one and he can respond.’’


May 6, 2013

Baird said he is hopeful his team can return to the winners’ list against Keilor at Casey on Sunday. The club hosts a fund-raiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. Casey Cavaliers women went down 50-57 to Southern Peninsula Sharks on Saturday night with Jessica Szalek statistically their best with 13 points and 13 rebounds. The Sharks blew the game apart in the third term with a 26-12 run but the Cavs never gave up and threatened in the final term. But Sharks star Lee Wilkins’ 19 points proved to be the difference. Casey Cavs Youth League 2 men were due to play yesterday. — Brad McGrath

EVAN Panozza is the Casey Scorpions’ sole representative in the initial VFL squad to tackle the WAFL in Western Australia on Saturday afternoon. The Scorpions captain was named in the 30-man squad last Tuesday with it due to be trimmed to 25 after tomorrow’s training session. Panozza has been one of the Scorpions’ best in their undefeated start to the season and a familiar face in the team, having represented his state against Tasmania last year. The Squad: Matt Farrelly (Bendigo Gold); Sam Iles, David Mirra (Box Hill); Evan Panozza (Casey Scorpions); Nick Riddle (Collingwood); Matthew Bate, Michael Sikora (Essendon); Lachie Delahunty, Riley Heddles, Sam Lloyd, Michael Lourey, Scott Simpson (Frankston Dolphins); Dom Gleeson, Troy Selwood, Matthew Sully (Geelong); Stephen Clifton, Myles Sewell (North Ballarat); Kane Lambert, Adam Marcon (Northern Blues); Chris Cain, Sam Pleming, Josh Sciopone, Wayde Skipper (Port Melbourne); Adam Cockie, Marcus Marigliani (Sandringham); Ben Ross, Scott Sherlock, Ben Warren, Jake Wilson (Werribee Tigers); Ben Jolley, Willie Wheeler, Cameron Wood (Williamstown).

Borough’s late burst takes the Scorpions off guard CASEY Scorpions suffered their first loss of Rohan Welsh’s reign, going down to Port Melbourne by three points in a hard-fought VFL clash at North Port Oval on Saturday. The Scorpions led by four goals at the final change but the Borough came out full of running to win 15.11 (101) to 14.14 (98). Welsh said the Borough had been impossible to stop in the opening 10 minutes of the final term when they eroded the Scorpions’ lead with a brilliant style of play. ‘‘We just couldn’t stop them . . . we tried but they got on top,’’ he said. ‘‘I don’t think we played at our best, but I don’t think they did either and you can probably put that down to pressure from both sides.

‘‘I think [Port Melbourne coach Gary Ayres] Ayresy would agree.’’ The Scorpions’ usual suspects were prolific with James Magner gathering 32 touches while highly rated youngster Jimmy Toumpas gathered 26 disposals in his best performance at VFL level. Boom 17-year-old Jesse Hogan didn’t play after failing to overcome a corked knee, opening the door for recruit Chris Dawes to get more opportunity in attack. Dawes moved freely and booted three goals and will soon come into contention to make his longawaited debut for the Demons. Jack Fitzpatrick was again impressive for the Scorpions in attack to also finish with three goals. Luke



Tynan provided plenty of drive off half-back. Sam Blease responded well to being dropped from Melbourne’s line-up to gather 32 possessions, but in the end the experience of players like Jon Baird and Sam Pleming was telling for the Borough. Scorpion Tom Gillies suffered a hamstring injury in the second term and will miss several weeks. Mitch Clisby was knocked out in the third term but should be OK for the Scorpions’ next game. The VFL has a general bye this weekend because of VFL’s state game against the WAFL. — Brad McGrath Casey Scorpions clash with Box Hill Hawks at Casey Fields from 1.10pm on Saturday, May 18.

Seagulls push Eagles to a draw BY BRAD McGRATH WHILE the aura of invincibility surrounding Cranbourne might be cracked, not shattered, Tooradin-Dalmore did the Casey Cardinia League a big favour on Saturday. They did what no team other than Narre Warren has been able to do in recent seasons — they didn’t lose to the Eagles. Seagulls defender Sam Watson restricted boom full forward Marc Holt to four goals and their midfield at least broke even with their star-studded Eagles’ counterparts. But it still wasn’t enough and the match finished in a thrilling draw. Holt kicked two points late in the game to tie the scores up 13.16 (94) to the Seagulls 14.10 (94). Seagulls coach Tom Hallinan said he was proud of the performance but rued a lack of composure in the final minutes that cost his team what would have been a famous victory over Cranbourne. ‘‘Cranbourne have only been beaten by one team in the past three years,’’ he said. ‘‘There have been nine other teams that have lost to Cranbourne . . . I can’t fault the players but I don’t know if it was the one that got away? ‘‘Maybe a lack of experience cost us. We should have closed it out but went with a couple of short kicks instead of long ones.’’ To compound the heartbreak for the Seagulls, star midfielder Beau Miller suffered a broken ankle in the second term and is set for an extended stint on the sidelines. This meant more pressure was heaped on Matthew Wade and Brett Scarcella through the midfield and the pair responded as they guided the Seagulls to a eight-point half-time lead after trailing by 43 points at the first change. Small forward Ryan Eaton was another catalyst for the revival, with four of his six goals coming in the second term to be clearly the most dangerous forward on the park. ‘‘They obviously got out to a bolter and used the breeze to their advantage,’’ Hallinan said. ‘‘By the last term the breeze wasn’t there and like all good teams they rallied and hit the front.’’ For Cranbourne, Ryan Davey was typically hard working while Justin Bollenhagen and Stuart Morrish also battled valiantly. Doveton recorded a tough 38-point win over
