More cash urged for growth areas



BY LAURA LITTLE and TARA MURRAY MELBOURNE’S growth areas need almost $900 million of extra funding from the state government to provide critical infrastructure and improve their residents’ quality of life, a new report reveals. The Interface Scorecard 2013, commissioned by 10 councils which form a buffer ring around metropolitan Melbourne, says last month’s state budget compounded the disadvantage suffered by people living in growth municipalities. The councils, including Hume, Wyndham and Melton, say the government has failed to address gaps in service delivery and infrastructure in their areas compared to other parts of metropolitan Melbourne. As previously reported by the Weekly, the councils released the One Melbourne or Two? report in February, warning the government that growth areas needed $9.8 billion to address their infrastructure needs. The councils asked the government to establish a fund similar to the Regional Growth Fund, a pool of $1 billion to be spent over eight years on services for municipalities in country Victoria. Buffer areas received $938 million over four years in the budget for schools, health care and public transport, but the councils estimate they will need another $892 million in that time to keep up with demand for services. The council say an extra $142.6 million is needed to build primary schools in their municipalities, while $394.9 million is required to improve public transport. They also warn there is a

4 6 10 $102.9 million funding shortfall for secondary schools. Hume council chief executive Domenic Isola said that while any money received by the interface councils was welcome, there wasn’t enough funding in the budget to begin bridging the gap. “It’s about correcting things that haven’t existed just in the last one, two or five years,” he said. “It’s about things that have happened over the past 15-20 years and the problems are not going to get fixed in one round of funding.

“If you don’t start to correct the funding gap, you’ll get people coming out to growth areas like Craigieburn who don’t have the level of infrastructure or services that are needed. “You’re creating further problems for the next generation, which is always in catch-up mode.” State Treasurer Michael O’Brien said the budget had funded new schools, hospitals, police stations, better roads and public transport, which benefited growth areas. “We’re working with growth area

By Eleani Purcell THE historic weatherboard Westmeadows Hall is a flourishing centre for community activities. It hosts the local Scouts group on Monday, line-dancing midweek and a church service popular with the Samoan community on Sundays. But Westmeadows Hall committee of management secretary Gwen Wilson is concerned that the Hume council’s proposal to again raise the hourly rate to rent the hall will drive away the groups that use the building each week.

“Every year the council raises the hourly fees for bookings, but we don’t want to put up the cost,” she said. “The more expensive it gets the more it deters groups from using the hall. This is a community space; it’s meant to be used by the community.” The 2013 council budget proposes raising the hourly rental rate for permanent bookings from $14 to $15. “It’s only an increase of $1, but for small groups using the hall every week for up to 10 hours, it adds up to a big difference,” Mrs Wilson said. “Last year when the cost went up [also $1 an hour] we lost our weekly

That has helped us preserve the historical facade of the building,” she said. “The hall has been used by the people of Westmeadows since 1887; we don’t want to see that tradition stop now.” By the time the Weekly went to print, the council was having a rethink on the hike. It was expected to decide last night.

Now two more groups have told me that if the rates go up again they’ll be leaving, too.” The extra money raised by the council would go to the hall committee, but Mrs Wilson says it doesn’t need the money. “Financially, the committee is well off. Even if we don’t increase the fees and we retain the permanent groups we have, we’ll still bring in more money than we need.” She said one of the benefits of having a regular rotation of groups in the hall was that maintenance costs were low. “The groups that use the

Heights hub calls for revamp to meet refugee influx

Michael Copp

THE Buchan Street Community Centre and surrounding areas could be the centrepiece of Meadow Heights if Hume council upgrades and improves facilities in the area. The Meadow Heights Learning Shop, which operates the centre, has submitted to the council a request for about $1.4 million to upgrade facilities in the street, including Buchan Street Reserve and the community hub. The shop, a training organisation, provides education opportunities at three locations in Hume. Shop manager Frank Devlin spoke about the submission at a council meeting last week. He said the funds were needed for fitness equipment, new barbecues, a basketball ring, shade trees and a futsal court at the Buchan Street Reserve; and a community garden, additional car parking, a Men’s Shed, and full-size basketball court at the centre. Mr Devlin said the redevelopment of recreation facilities would meet community needs.

Help us: Frank Devlin and Anne Jessop want better facilities at Buchan Street Reserve.

“The current influx of refugees means the community requires a safe place where mental and physical health is rejuvenated, and it needs to be as cheap as possible,’’ he said.

Speaking before the meeting, Mr Devlin and fellow staff member Anne Jessop said they weren’t asking for items that weren’t expected in any community. “We want refugees to

have equipment and things which they would have had in their home countries,” said Mr Devlin. “The building [community centre] is being used seven days a week for 12 to 15 hours a day. “Most of the programs we run are around adult education, and for people who don’t have large disposable income. “To have more facilities will help grow this. We run a men’s group, which has 10 men and runs five days a week, but we don’t have the facilities of a Men’s Shed.’’ Mrs Jessop said: ‘‘We felt it was important to draw attention to it to get the ball rolling. What we are trying to do is get it addressed and show that we [Meadow Heights] have, kind of, been forgotten about.” The council was expected to make a decision on the budget submissions last night. – Tara Murray For the latest on the decision, go to

New office for job seekers on a mission By Helen Grimaux and Tara Murray

By Tara Murray

Help at hand: Wesley’s Vicki Walsh (right) lends a hand to Megan Collins.

A new lease of life After hurting her back six years ago, Tullamarine resident Megan Collins turned to Wesley Employment Services for help. Her injury meant she was no longer able to continue working in her trade. “I had worked for more than 10 years as a horticulturist and landscape gardener but injured my back and was unable to do the heavy-duty work I had to do,” Ms Collins said last week. She turned to Wesley for help to rebuild her career. Last year, Ms Collins completed a

certificate IV in workplace training and assessment at Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE. “I have been fortunate to be part of an organisation that can understand my barriers to employment,’’ she said. “Wesley staff have taken into consideration my qualifications as well as my work experience and continue to address my physical and mental medical conditions. “Wesley has helped me increase my confidence and self-esteem.’’ She said she was now more confident that she would be able to find suitable full-time work.

WESLEY Mission has opened a new employment centre for people with disabilities in Broadmeadows. The new offices, at 1100 Pascoe Vale Road, will enable the agency’s employment service to support an extra 140 new job seekers, with better facilities in a more centralised location. Employment services manager Angela Dapcevic said the new office would make the service more accessible for job seekers and businesses. “We have three times the [number of] clients that we had five years ago and we are now seeing more than 200 clients a month. “The new location is central and people know where we are, and it’s big enough to host meetings. “We are still in the process of getting employers through the new centre to show them what we have here.” Wesley chief executive Rob Evers said the office would be able to provide services outside the Broadmeadows area. “Wesley’s new site in Broadmeadows will also now provide outreach support in Coburg and Essendon to better meet the needs of clients living outside the local area, as well as increasing our presence in the northern growth corridor of Melbourne,” Mr Evers said.

THREE Hume schools could be worse off under the Gonski school reforms plan, according to the state government. The claim is rejected by the federal government. The state government last week released figures which, it says, show 249 schools will be worse off if they sign up to the federal government’s proposal. Under the federal government’s National Plan for School Improvement, primary schools would get $9271 and high schools $12,193 per student in government funds plus loadings for indigenous students and those with disability, and from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. Figures released by the federal government show every school would receive at least a 19  per cent increase in funding by 2019. But according to the state government figures, released by Education Minister Martin Dixon, Broadmeadows Special Developmental School, Broadmeadows Valley Primary and the Sunbury and Macedon Ranges Specialist School would lose money under the federal government plan. But the federal government says the Broadmeadows Special Developmental School will receive $1.3 million or a 20.3 per cent increase in funding, while the state government claims it will be $184,260 worse off. Broadmeadows Valley Primary School will get $1.1 million or a 19.4 per cent increase in funding, while Sunbury and Macedon

‘Commonwealth figures show hundreds of schools will lose out’ Ranges Specialist School will get $1.8 million – or a 27.1 per cent increase in funding, according to the federal government. But the state government claims they will be worse off by $379,738 and $209,138, respectively. Broadmeadows’ Valley Primary School principal Andrew Jones said he did not want to comment, while the other schools were unavailable for comment. Mr Dixon has called on the federal government to return to negotiations and address ‘‘flaws’’ in its plan. “Commonwealth figures show that compared to the current arrangements, hundreds of schools will lose out under the proposed funding reforms, which means we cannot sign onto these reforms.’’ McEwen MP Rob Mitchell disputed Mr Davis’s claims. “Minister Dixon’s claims that any schools would be better off under the current [Victorian] system are not supported by any analysis or data provided by his government. “The Napthine government has consistently refused to confirm to the Commonwealth its future spending on schools, including its proposed indexation rates. “There is no explanation as to what forward projections in the Victorian budget this used and what rate of indexation was applied.”

More health aid for Hume

WORK is in full swing on the $109 million Metropolitan Fire Brigade training centre in Craigieburn and is expected to finish by the end of the year. The state-of-the-art venue will have 12 training props to prepare emergency services staff for real-life emergencies. The state government announced last August that Craigieburn would be home to the MFB’s biggest training headquarters, to be used by 1800 firefighters. The centre, at an 18.6-hectare site at the old Apollo Gardens caravan park on the Hume Highway, will provide firefighters and other personnel with a range of practical settings in which to train. They include a streetscape, highrise buildings, a shopping centre, service station and residential precinct. Major Projects Minister David Hodgett toured the site last Thursday with MFB chief executive officer Nick Easy, Western Metropolitan MLC Bernie Finn

and Hume councillor Casey Nunn to get an update on the project. Mr Hodgett said the centre was the only one of its type in the southern hemisphere, and 136 jobs had been created in Hume during construction of the buildings.

HUME young people facing mental health issues will have access to expert help in Craigieburn with a new Headspace centre opening early next year. The centre will provide free professional support for young people dealing with depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other mental health concerns. Craigieburn is one of 15 new Headspace sites across Australia. It will be operated by Orygen Youth Health Research Centre, which also manages centres in Glenroy and Sunshine. The new centre will have about 20 staff, including psychologists, psychiatrists and occupational therapists. Orygen expects it will provide support for more than 2000 people every year. Orygen executive director Patrick McGorry said the centre would ensure young people living in Hume had access to services for the major

‘Mental health is the single-biggest health issue facing young Australians’ health issues likely to impact on their lives. “Mental health is the single-biggest health issue facing young Australians, with one in four experiencing some form of mental health problem before the age of 25,” Professor McGorry said. “It’s vital that young people have easy access to much-needed professional support delivered in a welcoming and comfortable environment. “In the past, youth psychological issues went largely ignored and the default treatment was medication. “A more effective way of tackling this issue is to use a balanced approach that focuses on early detection and intervention and individually tailored holistic care.”

The Craigieburn centre will offer a range of services, including counselling, support for same-sexattracted and transgender people, and advice for those experiencing bullying and relationship problems. It will also provide help for general and sexual health concerns and educational and vocational support. Orygen general manager John Moran said young people needed a “comprehensive service”to meet their needs. “What we have found through our other Headspace centres is that an approach that deals not just with mental health issues but with the broader social challenges facing young people works best,” he said. The centre will also offer information for parents and carers who have concerns about their children’s mental well-being. Headspace Craigieburn will raise awareness of the centre’s services through programs with local schools, community groups and general health service providers.

Judge upholds refugee rejection

WITH the opening of Broadmeadows English Language School, Hume has gained a new asset aimed at helping migrants settle in their new homeland. The school opened its doors on Johnstone Street, Broadmeadows. The language school also has a Collingwood campus with students from more than 30 countries. The Broadmeadows school has an enrolment target of 26 secondary and 39 primary school children,. The new school offers English language courses to newly arrived migrants to prepare them for entry into mainstream schooling and other further education. School spokesman Peter Mitsis said: “Broadmeadows is a settlement area for new arrivals, where we can provide an introduction to Australian lifestyle, culture and education.’’ He said the school aimed to develop their language skills and

WORLD Refugee Week last week brought no cause for celebration for more than 20 refugees detained indefinitely at the Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation (MITA) facility in Broadmeadows because of adverse ASIO assessments. Two Sri Lankan men, one of whom has been in detention for three years, had adverse security assessments upheld, according to a refugee action group. Refugee Action Collective member Faiyi Zhang said many refugees were in legal limbo. They had been recognised as refugees under the UN Refugee Convention so could not be sent back to their homelands but were denied visas to live in Australia because of negative security assessments. “It’s highly stressful for these people, who have fled war and persecution in

their homelands,” Ms Zhang said. “They have come to Australia and been recognised as refugees but are still locked up and denied the freedom they’re entitled to.” Former Federal Court judge Margaret Stone was appointed ‘independent reviewer of adverse security assessments’ (IRASA) by former attorney-general Nicola Roxon in November to review the secret adverse ASIO assessments. But Ms Zhang said that last week was the first time Ms Stone interviewed refugees housed at Broadmeadows. “Two were interviewed last week and both had their ASIO security threat assessments upheld,” she said. Ms Stone will this week interview at least five more refugees being held at Broadmeadows. The IRASA office said 26 reviews were still ongoing but could not say how long it would take for all the reviews to be completed.

One scheme. One focus on individuals. One commitment to lifelong support. From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.

What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.

Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.

SMARTBUS passengers on route 901 to and from Broadmeadows station to Melbourne airport will now get on and off in front of terminal 1 rather than terminal 4. A spokeswoman for the airport said terminals 1 and 2 were the most popular destinations for airport passengers, accounting for about two-thirds of SmartBus route 901 travellers. The bus stop change starts this week. First-time myki users arriving at the airport can now buy a myki visitor pack from the SkyBus counters outside terminals 1 or 3. But the airport’s express car park, between terminals 3 and 4 near the Tiger terminal, will close from July 3. Meanwhile, road travellers in and around the airport are already negotiating works along Airport Drive, as an $80 million upgrade and connection to the Western Ring Road gets under way. An Alex Avenue on-ramp will be next, all part of the airport’s southern precinct redevelopment approved in April.

LONG-TIME State Emergency Service volunteer Phyllis Quick’s dream came true last week when her scrapbooks were donated to the Brian Rickard Museum in Craigieburn. Throughout her life, Ms Quick collected newspaper articles, photographs and stories about the Cann River SES. She had a desire to share the stories of the SES with others but died in 2006. Now her family has fulfilled her dream, making the six-hour drive from Cann River to donate her works to the Craigieburn museum, the only one of its kind in Australia. SES volunteer Michael Casha says the generosity of Ms Quick and her family reflects the spirit of the SES. “Every SES unit is developed, maintained and manned by volunteer members who dedicate their time to making their communities a better place,” Mr Casha said. “The scrapbooks donated by the

Quick family are invaluable and bring an incredible insight into the history of the SES through their experiences. ‘‘It’s easy to show old equipment to visitors of the museum, but being able to let them experience our history through the eyes of the Quick family is irreplaceable”. The Brian Rickard museum opened in Craigieburn in 2011 thanks to the generosity of its namesake. The museum, which celebrates the history of State Emergency Services Victoria, is filled with documents, photographs and SES equipment collected by Mr Rickard during his 30-year career with the SES. Mr Rickard’s donations formed the foundation for the museum, which is built on the generous spirit of the SES. The SES has served local communities for more than 50 years, and Mr Casha said museums like this one were important for acknowledging the hard work of volunteers.


Scrapbook is SES museum’s coup

Remembering: From left, Shaun Tiernam, Ian and Heather Quick (Phyllis Quick’s husband and sister), Martin Ledwich, Cheryl Price and Paul Ledwich at the scrapbook-donation ceremony.

“Craigieburn SES has a deep appreciation of the efforts of those in the past who have made it what it is, and it made absolute sense for

us to invest in this museum,’’ Mr Casha said. “It is important for us to acknowledge and respect the history in which our foundations lie.”

Leagues jump on offensive posts By Tara Murray

Paul Rovere

THE Riddell and Essendon District football leagues are cracking down on players and officials commenting on social media sites. Officials from both competitions, which cover the Hume region, say they have been made aware of Facebook pages that include offensive comments, including racist remarks, about other players and teams. The Weekly has been made aware of four pages the leagues want shut. Both leagues are concerned by the use of their official logos on the pages. Two of the pages, “Shit RDFL players don’t say” and “Shit Romsey players don’t say” have been shut after complaints to Facebook, and officials are still trying to have “Shit EDFL players never say” and “EDFL memes” closed. Many of the comments have been written by junior footballers.

The Riddell league wrote to all clubs last week, saying players could be suspended for posting on these pages. “Any player posting, commenting on or creating [such] pages . . . will receive an automatic minimum twoweek suspension with no appeal,” league operations manager Toby Boyle said in the letter. “The comments and contents of this page and pages similar to it have a damaging effect on the RDFNL, its clubs and, above all, the players and officials within the clubs.” Essendon league general manager Marc Turri said clubs would be contacted about players and officials posting on the sites. “If players or officials are found to bring the game into disrepute [they] can be sanctioned, which includes suspension,” he said. “We’re looking at having [the pages] shut down as they misrepresent the league and have no purpose.”

SOLD! A plan to make learning easier

Class is in: Kerrie Bradburn (left) with teachers Marilyn Bradbury and Emily Ballenden, and students Luke and Jack (bottom).

AFTER months of planning, a Hume group is ready to launch a venue to make learning easy for children of all ages with disabilities. Sunbury’s Support and Opportunities for Learning Difficulties (SOLD) will open a Learning Lounge at Sunbury Heights Primary School. SOLD president Kerrie Bradburn said the first stage of the project would be launched on July 22. “We’ll start with a homework club, which will be run every Monday from 4pm to 5pm,” she said. “On Wednesdays, we’ll have Mindful Meditation sessions and Games Gurus sessions using board games to help support learning.” The second phase, to be introduced later in the year, will include group tutoring and screening tests. Ms Bradburn said the group was looking for participants, tutors and volunteers to help the special education teacher running the homework club. More details: or phone 0414 432 158

Cannons silenced by the power of Power By Teo Pellizzeri Calder was short of both skills and physicality as a 37-point loss to Gippsland Power dumped the Cannons out of the TAC Cup top eight on Saturday. The Cannons pushed Gippsland at times but lacked quality in execution to get any closer than the 11.11 (77) to 16.18 (114) defeat at Highgate Reserve. The four-and-six Cannons now sit ninth on the table, just behind the Western Jets, Sandringham Dragons and Northern Knights (all 4-1-5). Stopping league-leading goalscorer Josh Scott proved too tough a task for Calder’s backline as the Lakes Entrance forward led the Power to victory with seven goals. Calder had a forward ace of its own in Moonee Valley’s Peter Wright, who booted three goals but was still limited in his second game back from a long-term back injury. Scott, who played head-to-head on a number of Calder defenders, was then the dominant force of the second half. His early goal had the Power up by 23 in the third term before Wright and Josh Cauchi kicked quick back-to-back goals. Wright missed a set shot which would have drawn Calder within four points, enough of a warning to spark Scott’s next response.

Diving to take the mark of the day, Scott goaled and then kicked another soon after before a hopeful 70m kick from Alex Carr bounced through an unguarded goalsquare to blow Gippsland’s lead out to 29. Calder would get no closer in the final term as Gippsland kicked five goals to four. “When we had the ball in our hands we made poor choices,” Cannons coach Andrew Jago said. “We allowed Gippsland into better positions through our use of the football “I think we underestimated Gippsland . . . they’re good at chopping out for each other and linking up.” Jago wouldn’t be drawn on whether or not he was feeling pressure to get to the finals. “I still believe it’s about development,” he said. “I think the last two weeks have been the only two when I couldn’t say we’ve improved. “It’s about getting back to improving again because we certainly didn’t show any improvement against Bendigo last week and today we didn’t. Last week we didn’t get our hands on the football and today we got the football but made poor decisions. “Now it’s a matter of starting the trend upward again and where it gets us is where it gets us.” The Cannons play Oakleigh Chargers (10th, 3-1-6) at Highgate Reserve from 2.30pm on Sunday.

Broncos tick off weekend double

inbrief EDFL



Hume City Broncos showed its championship credentials with a winning double-header weekend that puts the team top of Big V Basketball women’s state championship. A 60-51 win against Ringwood Hawks on Sunday reversed a 28-point hiding last time the teams played and took the 13-and-two Broncos to the top of the league at Ringwood’s (11-2) expense. Playing assistant coach Sharin Milner top scored with 22 points including some key three-pointers to lead the victory. Ringwood stars Amber Hegge (fouled out) and Jadee Rooney (ankle injury) struggled against a tough Hume City defence. Hume by contrast picked its shots well, with Milner and Katrina Hibbert shooting a combined six-of-11 from three-point range to provide team-lifting baskets at regular intervals. Ringwood started faster and opened an 11-point lead mid-way through the second quarter after Hume struggled to make baskets from under the ring. But with Hegge already on three fouls and Rooney sitting out more than a quarter after hurting her ankle, Hume went on a 9-0 run late in the second term and had scores level by half time. Ringwood’s resistance cracked late in the third quarter when a Hibbert three and a three-point play from Milner put Hume eight clear. Another three-pointer from Hibbert early in the final quarter put Hume up 12 and out of reach. “It proves we’ve got more

resilience than we gave ourselves credit for, and the ability to rise to a big game and occasion,” Hume City coach Warren Taylor said. “We put in hustle on the defensive end and kept them to a low score. “Yinka (Olorunnife) had some moves there that I don’t think anyone in the league could defend.” Hume City beat Bulleen Boomers

77-68 on Saturday night in the first game of the double header. The Lady Broncos have a bye then play away at Ringwood on Saturday July 6. “Defence has been a focus against high-scoring teams and to win in this fashion will give the group confidence,” Milner said. In men’s state championship, Hume City’s losing streak is up to

three games after a 78-84 loss to Corio Bay on Saturday night. Corio Bay had a slight advantage in turn-overs, rebounds and shooting percentage, enough to edge the Broncos in a low-scoring final quarter. Shaun Prendergast led Hume City’s scoring with 18, while Alex Bogart-King scored 16 and Jamal Brown 14.

Eaglets earn their wings at club’s new show court By Teo Pellizzeri Craigieburn Eagles dispelled any fears of a mid-season slump when its young players stepped up to spearhead a four-point win against Sunbury Jets in Big V women’s division 1 on Saturday night. The Eagles were down by double figures in the second quarter on Saturday but rallied to win 75-71 in its first outing on the new show court at Craigieburn Leisure Centre. The Lady Eagles (12-2) are second on the table, behind Geelong (11-1 prior to Sunday’s game after the Weekly went to print) and ahead of third-placed Warrandyte (9-3). A 42-point loss against Warrandyte the previous weekend,

the first match since a couple of key Eagles had departed on a mid-season holiday, had Craigieburn playing to prove its squad depth could handle the pressure. Division top scorer Tenille Cann and starters Ellie McLean and Giulia Dinunzio are all on holidays, while Jessica Boyd and Kellie Bailey are sitting out because of pregnancy. Coach Simon Liebelt filled his squad with a number of youth league players and watched them peg the deficit on Saturday back to six points by half time, then four down by three-quarter time. “We didn’t do anything drastic in the second half, we had to work harder and rebound all the loose balls,” Liebelt said.

“We needed to tighten up on defence because our offence runs out of our defence, and we just weren’t working hard enough. To Sunburys’ credit they had a good offence that was taking us away from our game.” Nicole McMaohn led Craigieburn scoring with 24 and rebounds with 17. Tahlia Prestia responded to being given 40 minutes by scoring 16 points. Eliza Stylianou (13 points), Jessica Piroski (12) and Andrea Godden (10) were all in double figures. Liebelt said the blow-out margin against Warrandyte had been more than offset by the confidence gained by some of the youth league squad members who got extended

court time in a senior game. “It really helped us to step up (against Sunbury),” Liebelt said. “The best thing about the Craigieburn Eagles women’s program is the teams train together and get along. Unity is something I’m not worried about.” Craigieburn’s men snared their fifth win of the season by downing Sunbury 84-73 in men’s division 1. The Eagles (5-11) remain in the play-off hunt, thanks to 20 points each from Kane McNamara and Liam Watt. Craigieburn hosts Geelong (7-8) at Craigieburn Leisure Centre from 6.30pm on Saturday night, while the women have a bye. Hume City (3-10) is away at Waverley (9-4) on Sunday.

Greenvale edged closer to taking back top spot on percentage from Aberfeldie after a 21.15 (141) to 12.9 (81) win against Oak Park on Saturday. Adam McPhee booted five goals for the Jets, while Dean Smith and Eric Kuret were other standouts. Elsewhere, Airport West kicked away from Pascoe Vale to win by 45 points, Aberfeldie edged Essendon Doutta Stars by 13, Avondale Heights out-lasted Keilor by 23 and Maribyrnong Park kicked away from Strathmore to win by 24. In division 1, Tullamarine is still top by half a game after a dominant first-quarter set up a 12-point win against Taylors Lakes. The Demons booted five goals to one in the first term but just two after half time, holding on 10.5 (65) to Taylors Lakes 8.5 (53). In other matches, Northern Saints beat Hadfield by 47 points, West Coburg beat Jacana by 28 and Glenroy thrashed Westmeadows by 127. In division 2, Roxburgh Park is third after beating Keilor Park 14.13 (97) to 12.6 (78). The victory means Roxburgh Park (6-4) leads Keilor Park, East Keilor and Coburg Districts (all 5-5) by a game. In other matches, Hillside beat East Keilor by 66 points, Coburg Districts beat Jacana by 26 and Moonee Valley thrashed East Sunbury by 136. For extended wraps of all three EDFL divisions to go

SOCCER Hume United remains stuck on the bottom of FFV state league 3 northwest after a 4-1 loss to Sunbury United on Saturday. The defeat leaves United (two points) nine adrift of safety from relegation. In state 4 north, Upfield won 3-2 against Heidelberg Stars while North City Wolves won 1-0 against Epping City. In state 5 north, Meadow Park Eagles drew 1-1 with Fawkner while Northern United lost 3-2 to Oak Park and Light United lost 6-0 to Heidelberg Eagles. In state 5 west, Greenvale United beat Sebastopol Vikings 5-2.

FOOTBALL Vic Metro Under-16s were named last week with Calder Cannons dominating coach Mark Fisher’s final squad of 25.
