The retail industry, which has received a boost with the recent upgrade of Woodgrove shopping centre, provides the most local jobs, followed by education and training, and construction. \ TM

Experts believe an Australian-first program will make life a little easier for Melton workers who have been retrenched or made redundant. Designed to help workers re-enter the workforce, the web-based Workers Retraining and Adjustment Program (WRAP) was launched last Tuesday. The program through which job seekers can access information, services and resources, was set up by Melton council with the help of local employment services and a $10,000 federal government grant. Melton council industry and employment liaison officer Ola De Gabriele said too many people who lost their jobs fell through the cracks as they didn’t know where to seek help. The site targets job seekers who were well trained and experienced in their previous jobs but who don’t qualify for Centrelink or possess the skills for positions available in the present market. “It will be helpful for all job seekers but will target retrenched or about-to-be-retrenched workers,” Ms De Gabriele said. “The goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone to access.” Ms De Gabriele said the website included local job advertisements, to which Melton residents will have first access. “Local jobs and local workers will be matched together,’’ she said. Melton has the highest unemployment rate in Melbourne’s west. Australian Bureau of Statistics figures for the June quarter show the unemployment rate in Melton was 9 per cent, with 4598 residents out of work. Department of Employment and Workplace Relations local employment co-ordinator Terry Kennedy, who helped establish the website, said he hoped it would be a prototype for other councils. ‘‘We want them [retrenched workers] to come in quicker, before the money runs out, and use resources like this website,” he said. \ TARA MURRAY

Moorabool firefighters have put irresponsible smokers and landholders on notice, warning that preventable blazes are draining local resources. Eight fire trucks from Bacchus Marsh were called out to a grass fire in Darley and an out-of-control planned burn at a Parwan property on November 26. Bacchus Marsh CFA Fourth Lieutenant Dale Salatheil said the first fire, which spread across grass beside the Western Freeway, is suspected to have been started by a cigarette thrown from a car window. “If these sort of fires weren’t happening, we could be even better prepared for the ones that can’t be helped due to lightning, storms and house fires,” he said. “We’ve sent one truck to New South Wales to help them out, so we’re one down already.”

The roadside blaze took 10 firefighters 25 McCrory warned that litterbugs faced minutes to contain, with smoke visible from stiff penalty notices and fines. “If you are the Gisborne Road bridge. witnessed by police depositing small items Mr Salatheil said that with Moorabool of litter, such as an extinguished butt, the listed among the state’s high-risk regions this penalty is a $288 on-the-spot fine,” he said. summer, the fire could have been much “For a still-lit butt it’s a $577 fine, and you worse. risk further prosecution.

Attacks in Port Phillip Prison and the Metropolitan Remand Centre are at a five-year high, driving up assault rates in Wyndham and Melton. Latest police statistics show that Wyndham police received 787 reports of assaults (excluding family violence) between October 1, 2012 and September 30 – up 57.7 per cent on the previous year. In Melton, assaults rose 17.4 per cent, with 729 attacks reported to police. Wyndham’s Inspector Damien Christensen and Melton’s Acting Inspector Tim O’Connor said increases in prison assaults were behind the surge. Assaults in Port Phillip Prison are counted in Wyndham’s crime statistics, while assaults at the Metropolitan Remand Centre in Ravenhall are included in Melton’s. Community and Public Sector Union industrial officer Andrew Capp said assaults were becoming commonplace at the remand centre and Port Phillip Prison, with overcrowding leading to prisoners lashing out. Mr Capp said there were more than 800 prisoners at the remand centre and more than 1000 prisoners at Port Phillip. “There has been an increase in double-ups in cells,’’ he said. ‘‘If you have a prisoner in a single cell and then they have to share a cell, they aren’t happy about it.” The Justice Department’s annual report reveals that prison assaults across the state are at a five-year high. According to the report, an average of 18.7 prisoners in every 100 were attacked by a fellow inmate last financial year, up from 14.1 in 2008-09. Prisoner-on-staff assaults rose from 2.2 per 100 in 2008-09 to 4.3 in 2012-13. A Corrections Victoria spokesman said all assaults in prisons were taken seriously and were reported to police. He said prisoner placements were managed to ensure security was maintained. \ LAURA LITTLE and TARA MURRAY

The Bacchus Marsh pool committee had ‘delusions of grandeur’ on this project. The oversized pool concept would have impacted on the struggling local economy, which has many small and micro-businesses flourishing around the health fitness industry. I believe the committee is looking into how other towns have built brilliant pool facilities for around $6 million. Meanwhile, the ‘old-fashioned’ outdoor pool looks ready to go for summer.

A LESSON LEARNT I always leave my car door unlocked with my laptop, files, purse, bank card and other important items inside my bag, either on the floor or on the car seat. Last Friday, I learnt my lesson. I parked at Victoria University’s Melton campus and was walking near the tennis court close to

Staughton Street when three children, aged about 8-12, rode past and headed towards my vehicle. They opened the car door and started going through the bag. I was yelling and screaming as I ran towards them. Luckily, they only found a bag containing my dog’s medication. I wonder if their parents knew they were not in school. I’m glad they didn’t see my other bag containing valuables, otherwise it would have been a disaster for me.

farm study a first step in keeping the food bowl filled bacchus marsh

Researchers will assess the importance of Bacchus Marsh’s fruit and vegetable markets as part of a study aiming to save farms in Melbourne’s fringe suburbs. Project leader and Deakin University research fellow Rachel Carey said what made Melbourne’s food special was that a lot of produce was grown on the city edge. “But the farms that surround the fringe are fast disappearing and taking the local food bowl with them,” Dr Carey said. “As the city grows, it’s gobbling up our best farmland and replacing it with houses.” Bacchus Marsh orchardist Nick Dellios said changes were needed to make farming a more viable industry, with many farmers “struggling to keep their heads above water”. “The growing conditions and soils in Bacchus Marsh are excellent, but I’m not sure how many growers will survive.” He said production costs were too high. “It feels like people underestimate the value of food production, and the price we’re getting for fruit and vegetables is unsustainable. There’s risks involved and not as much return on investment.” Mr Dellios said governments needed to invest in farming and produce, rather than

car manufacturing, as the food industry was crucial to Australia’s future. “They’re better off investing money into farming infrastructure, whether that be through low-interest loans or research and

development for the industry,” he said. “Another suggestion would be introducing tariffs on produce coming in from overseas, so that we’re on an even playing field.” Dr Carey said the Deakin University-based

Food Alliance, funded by VicHealth, was studying produce-growing areas in Bacchus Marsh, Werribee, Cranbourne, Koo Wee Rup, the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Ranges. She said the study would confirm what was produced and where, with the information used to educate the public and decision-makers about the importance of local food bowls. It will include farmers’ stories and lists of where to buy farm gate produce. “This is an important first step in securing long-term protection for these areas so future generations can continue to enjoy local foods from Melbourne,” Dr Carey said. “We all understand the importance of superannuation and saving for the future and these food bowl areas around Melbourne are our collective superannuation fund, our food for the future.” Dr Carey said researchers were seeking donations through crowdfunding. With $9000 raised, the first farms to be profiled will be in Werribee South and Cranbourne, as they are most under threat. All the nominated areas will be investigated if $15,000 can be raised. \ PRISCILLA MOCA and SUE HEWITT » pozible.com/kyfoodbowl

I

reckon you were right,” Steve Bracks says. I’m having a cuppa with the former state premier at his Williamstown home. Sunlight flows through a stained-glassed window, an anchor at the centre of its nautical theme. Three years ago, I’d suggested ‘boat people’ would come to dominate federal politics. It was during a 2010 interview, when Bracks was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia, the highest civilian honour. “It seems to have been a bigger issue than I would have expected or – maybe not you, you foretold it – most people would have expected in Victoria,” Bracks says. “And probably an issue out of proportion to the number of people who are coming here seeking asylum. Compared to the rest of the world, while it’s increasing, it’s certainly not at the level of Europe; it’s not at the level of Canada; it’s not at the level of other parts of South-East Asia. “So, proportionately, it’s surprising how big an issue it is. “When you’re desperate, you could do anything if you want to protect your family and seek to get a better life and that’s your only prospect.” As well as the predominance of boat people on the political agenda, another surprise to him was the first act of Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop after the Liberals won power at September’s federal election. In May, Bracks, 59, had been given the US diplomatic post of Australia’s next consul-general in New York. On the eve of his departure, he was stunned to learn he had been sacked, a move that some analysts labelled vindictive. While surprised the Liberals didn’t choose to uphold the position, Bracks says at least they decided early so he was able to regain the former positions he wanted. Hang on, I quiz. Decided early? “A day just before.” But Bracks “sees no need to rake over the coals”, declaring he and his wife Terry are “over it completely”. So, who does he think his replacement will be? Surely not media mogul Rupert Murdoch, as some perhaps flippantly suggested. “C’mon, it wouldn’t be Murdoch; he’s otherwise engaged,” Bracks laughs. “They’ve made their decision. They’ll have their appointment, I assume, and I assume it will be someone who is a confidante of the Liberal Party. “But I’m not bitter or concerned about it in any sense other than I thought I would have done a good job and served Australia very well, but I’m over it.” Speaking of life’s interruptions, what of Victoria’s Parliament shutting down for two weeks in November

Bracks to the future Former state premier Steve Bracks is not letting a setback deter him, writes Goya DmytryshchaK after balance-of-power MP Geoff Shaw declared he had lost confidence in Speaker Ken Smith? “I think it is unprecedented,” Bracks says. “I haven’t heard before where the Parliament has been closed down to stop a vote happening, which is what happened. “And for the Speaker not to have a majority and to still continue is without precedent.” Bracks has been re-engaged as adviser to Timor-Leste Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao, with a focus on economic development rather than governance. “Australia, of course, had the intervention forces in 1999, which led to the liberation of Timor from Indonesia after 24 years of colonial rule, so there was a great affection for Australia,” Bracks says. “Australia had Timor as an ally in the Second World War ... they sided with Australia. “But, yes, there is a concern, currently, over the share of resources that Timor is getting out of the joint territorial waters and the fairness of that compared to what Australia has. “And in relation to Indonesia and the spying allegations, or the release by [Edward] Snowden ... I would have thought with

the form of words, it could have been handled much better by the government than it has. It seemed to have feet of clay on that and I would have thought some better advice could have been appropriate before the Prime Minister responded in the Parliament. It was the wrong forum, the wrong set of words, and that has got us off on the wrong foot.” Bracks says Tony Abbott needs to clarify the purpose of two Australian patrol boats, worth $2 million, given to Sri Lanka, a nation accused of war crimes. “You’d hope they’d only use them for domestic purposes and not for any purpose other than that.” He said British Prime Minister David Cameron had acted appropriately in raising allegations of human rights abuses against Sri Lankan Tamils during the final days of the civil war in 2009; a subject Abbott avoided. “I think the British approach was correct,” Bracks says. “I think if you were going to Sri Lanka you can’t turn a blind eye to atrocities that occurred internally in that country and I think Prime Minister Cameron did a good job at highlighting that while still participating in the Commonwealth forum, and I thought that was the appropriate thing to do.

“And I think that’s what we would have expected of our prime minister.” Bracks says it’s too early to tell how history will judge Abbott. “I think the title of the worst prime minister is hotly contested, but I think it’s much too early to talk about Tony Abbott – he’s only been there a couple of months. It hasn’t been a spectacular start. In relation to the worst prime minister ever, I think most people, in my age or my generation, would say Billy McMahon.” Bracks is unsurprised about the rise of the Palmer United Party, led by mining magnate Clive Palmer. He says it’s an “interesting phenomenon” but not unusual – just look at Pauline Hanson and Bob Katter. “There has been a constituency for an anti-politician politician, of which [Palmer] looks like he is – and particularly coming out of the north of Australia – so he’s a recent incarnation of a lineage of people who have been in that role. “And they tend to be shooting stars; they don’t last too long,” says Victoria’s second-longest-serving Labor premier. \ gdmytryshchak@mmpgroup.com.au DECEMBER 10, 2013 \ MELTON & MOORABOOL WEEKLY 15

here must be something in the water in Bacchus Marsh, according to award-winning animator Joshua Thomas. The 24-year-old traces his creative roots back to his teen years growing up in Moorabool. “The area seems to be a growing place for animators,” he laughs. “In my [bachelor of animation and interactive media] course at RMIT, there were so many of us from around here; it’s really weird.” Thomas, a former Bacchus Marsh Grammar student works for Brunswick animation studio Oh Yeah Wow. “i shot The studio was founded by another Bacchus Marsh Grammar graduate, Darcy a test Prendergast. and they Thomas’s music video for Melbourne liked it” synth-pop band Clubfeet’s Everything You Wanted took out this year’s gong for Australian music video of the year at Triple J’s J Awards. Thomas says he had the idea for the video for quite a while but didn’t have a project to put it to. The clip shows Clubfeet’s lead singer Sebastian Cohen walking down a semi-industrial street. Frozen images of him appear along the path and come to life as he approaches them. “The band had no idea what they were after, so I shot a little test for them and they liked it,” Thomas says. Triple J described it as a “one-shot” wonder. But Thomas says it actually took 10 takes to complete. Thomas admits he’s come a long way from the days The video was shot over one afternoon in November when Prendergast taught him the art of animation in last year. It then took Thomas two months to animate it. a garage. “I’ve always drawn, but then I realised I can “The cool thing is it subverts the viewer’s prediction of make the pictures move,” Thomas says, adding that what will happen,” he says.

he sees his art as a work in progress. “I hope to keep directing and spending every day improving. I don’t think I could have a regular job.” \ pmoca@mmpgroup.com.au

refugees

Refugees and asylum seekers settling in Melbourne’s west are receiving a warmer welcome than ever thanks to members of a new Facebook group. In less than three months the West Welcome Wagon (WWW) has already helped more than 100 families with household items and other support as they settle in the area. Yarraville’s Mia McGregor started the group when she realised families were moving into the area without a single item of furniture or any household goods. “I found out there were a number of refugees moving into the inner-west without anything. I thought I had a few things I could donate and I put out a call in the Inner West Buy Swap Sell Facebook group and had an amazing response.� Ms McGregor formed the WWW group in September. Membership has already raced to more than 600. The group has provided material aid, including food parcels, furniture and clothing as well as toys, bikes and Christmas present parcels, to households from Footscray to Geelong.

Ms McGregor is full of praise for the community’s willingness to offer assistance in any way they can. She expects the group’s ability to help will snowball as word spreads. “We need [people’s homes] to be dropping-off points,� she said. “We also need people with vans and utes who can help us carry donations and we need drivers generally who can help with things like driving people to the supermarket.�

The initiative has already started to help people form closer bonds through events such as cooking classes where asylum seekers share their traditional recipes. “This has all been very grassroots; it’s just such a great community here in the west.â€? \ BENJAMIN MILLAR Âť facebook.com/groups/ westwelcomewagonrefugeesupport

renewed push for springs train station CAROLINE SPRINGS

A frustrated Caroline Springs commuter has welcomed calls for the suburb’s stalled railway station to be completed. State Transport Minister Terry Mulder shelved plans for the station in May, 2011, after preliminary work at the south end of Christies Road had begun in late 2010. Last week, federal Gorton MP Brendan O’Connor said it was time Caroline Springs’ 100-metre “road to nowhere� had a station built at the end of it. “Caroline Springs is one of the fastestgrowing communities in Australia yet is a community with some of the worst access to public transport in Melbourne,� he said. Caroline Springs commuter Simon Beach said that with more than 24,000 residents in the area, a railway station was needed desperately. “Proof of that is watching the congested traffic stream out every morning and back in every night,� he said. A Transport Department spokesman last year said a station design had been prepared and environmental approvals were in place. The state government has made no further commitment to building the station and did not respond to requests for comment. \ BEN CAMERON

Earlier this year, Cory greeted walkers on the national Journey to Recognition.

Cr Dudzik says Cory showed great initiative to demonstrate such strong identification with his indigenous heritage. \ PRISCILLA MOCA

Not many eight-year-olds can say they’ve received an award from the prime minister, but St Bernards Primary School’s Cory can. Last Thursday, the grade 2 Bacchus Marsh pupil was among 20 children to receive a Prime Minister’s National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Medal. Cory, 8, was awarded for his short story on the history of Australia’s indigenous people, explaining some of their traditions, stories and symbols. “This is a very big achievement for a very little boy,” proud father Chris Huculak says. Cory was presented with the inaugural medal by Moorabool’s Cr Tonia Dudzik at a special assembly. “I think he was very surprised that he won ... he was speechless,” Mr Huculak said. “For Cory, being Aboriginal is very important and he has great pride and understanding of his roots. ‘‘[My wife Joy and I] hope this will have a profound impact on his life.” Cory’s entry was one of more than 100,000 from around Australia.

Meerea Park Indie Shiraz Pinot 2010 (Hunter Valley) $40; 14 per cent ★★★★ ½

ZO351150

Shiraz and pinot – two grapes you don’t usually associate with each other – have been a staple in the Hunter Valley for a long time. That said, this is the Meerea Park first release of the blend, with a ratio of shiraz to pinot noir of 5:1. It smells great, all earthy violet, blackberry, raspberry, spice and leather aromas. While cherry, raspberry and other red-berry flavours are pretty tasty, there’s a je ne sais quoi to this wine that helps it shine. Firm tannins and bright, fresh acid round out the structure. Food match \ Grilled quail with couscous

MONEY \ HOW TO HAVE A STRESS-FREE CHRISTMAS

I

t’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but are you able to enjoy the festive season without blowing a hole in your budget? We can sometimes go a little overboard with gifts for family, friends and ourselves. While there’s nothing wrong with spreading Christmas cheer, it is wise to plan ahead so you don’t find yourself starting a new year with a major debt to pay off.

dollar. Price comparison websites will even do some of the hard work for you. Some online stores offer free delivery at certain times. 5. LAYBY

Many retailers offer this service, sometimes with no deposit. It’s a good way of spreading the cost over the next month or so. This can also help ensure gifts are not kept at home where curious little ones might find them.

The following tips could help you enjoy a happier Christmas and a debt-free new year. 1. PREPARE A BUDGET

Make a list of everyone you want to buy presents for and how much you want to spend. Don’t forget any small gifts for teachers, neighbours and party hosts. If the total is more than you can afford, review your limits. Stick to this list to avoid any nasty surprises later on.

6. MAKE YOUR OWN GIFTS

2. ORGANISE A SECRET SANTA

By putting a few extra items in your trolley each week, you can stock up on many of the things you’ll need for Christmas. You’ll also save money if you pick up items when they’re on special.

Put together inexpensive gifts such as homemade cakes, sweets and jams, or something sewn or knitted. A personalised gift is always more special.

Suggest this to your family so nobody feels under pressure to spend up big. Each person draws one name out of a hat and buys that person a gift; set a price limit to make it easier. This system means you only have to come up with one gift idea.

8. WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD

Credit cards are convenient, but it can be easy to get carried away. Unless you have money set aside to pay the bill, avoid using credit cards to buy Christmas gifts or you’ll be paying for Christmas well into the new year.

3. SHOP AT THE SALES

Keep an eye out for items on your list that are on sale, and check shop catalogues for discounts and special offers. You might also be able to get a discount for cash.

9. BUDGET FOR POST-CHRISTMAS EXPENSES

Factor in other big expenses that fall in January and February, such as utility bills and back-to-school costs including fees and uniforms.

4. HEAD ONLINE TO SHOP

You can often find what you’re looking for online at a lower price, especially with the strong Australian

Gold standard test for silent killer

Don Barrie with the DEXA scanner at Lake Imaging.

MELTON & MOORABOOL

health& lifestyle Advertising feature

P

artner at Lake Imaging and fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Radiologists Dr Don Barrie says osteoporosis is an insidious disease that can ruin a person’s quality of life and can even be fatal. “Over one million Australians are affected by bones that become fragile leading to higher risk of fractures. If the onset of osteoporosis is ignored until the symptoms are noticeable it may be too late to change the course of the disease significantly. “The wise approach is for those in high risk categories to be alert to the possibility of osteoporosis from around the age of 50. Risk factors include a family history of the disease, having a very slight frame, low bone density, and fractures resulting from relatively minor incidents. Early symptoms can include chronic skeletal pain and tendency to stoop.” “Osteoporosis causes bones to lose minerals such as calcium more quickly than the body replaces them and is widely regarded as a risk for women aged 70 and above, but there is no hard and fast rule of the ‘normal’ age of onset and many sufferers are male,” Dr Barrie says “Many factors can increase or delay the onset of osteoporosis but it pays to exercise

regularly, eat sensible amounts of nutritional and healthy foods, and get your bone density checked periodically because early detection can make all the difference between good health and chronic health”. Lake Imaging uses DEXA Scans to measure bone density (Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry). DEXA is recognised by Osteoporosis Australia and is the accepted ‘Gold Standard’ test. It is fast, emits very low radiation, and is Medicare rebatable for persons over 70 and those in high risk categories. Dr Barrie recommends discussing your risk of osteoporosis with your GP once you turn 50. Lake Imaging, at 103 Unit Street Melton, opens 8.30am-6pm, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 8.30am-8pm, Wednesdays; 9am-1pm, Saturdays. Inquiries: 9747 4800 or www.lakeimaging.com.au

property of the week

Melton \ 1921 Melton-Gisborne Road Many houses claiming to be Federation style have a cursory poke at the period, adding a rosette here and fretwork there, but this one of about 40 squares is a beautifully presented, accurate salute to the era from top to bottom. Box bay windows, cast iron and tiled (gas log) fireplace with timber mantelpiece, stepped and painted cornices, wooden dado walls, high ceilings, brass switches and bathroom fittings, claw-foot bathtub, Tasmanian oak floorboards, and leadlight panels are all in gracious display.

Well screened from the road, the property of 0.6 hectares has delightful sandstone-edged cottage gardens and a magnificent gum, that match the house. But it’s also a treat for tradies with its expansive gravelled parking areas and a plumbed, 18 by 12-metre shed with five open bays – and wood heater. Flanking the entry hall are a study (or fourth bedroom), a lounge-dining room with the aforementioned fireplace, and the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, en suite with spa and bidet and door to a side deck.

At the back of the house, a large, lawned yard rimmed by pittosporums has two water tanks which feed an irrigation system. A circular driveway fronts the house and, to the side, a mulched sitting area ringed by gums and agapanthus is a pretty summertime retreat. Ducted heating, cooling and vacuum, ceiling fans, garden heritage lampposts and double garage are merely bonuses in this insanely neat, room-to-spare property. \ Carole Levy

waGGING TAIL BITES MELTON

BRIEFS GDCA Bacchus Marsh captured late wickets to make a solid start defending its modest score at Riddell in McIntyre Cup on Saturday. Kieran Atkin (46) top scored as Bacchus Marsh struggled to play Matt Livingstone (4-21) and Scott Fuller (3-45) on the way to 150. But Brenton Payne (2-6) and Mark Hooper (1-11) struck in the 18 overs before stumps to leave Riddell 3-37. Sunbury United (4-193d) is on its way to an outright win against St Anthony’s (43, 0-7), while Sunbury (5-137d) is also in a dominant position against Woodend (51, 1-6). Wallan (1-60) is well placed against Romsey (109). In B-grade, Diggers Rest Bulla Village set Gisborne 9-195 to chase this weekend. \

Melton has been undone by a last-wicket partnership for the third time in this east-west first XI Victorian Sub-district Cricket Association season as Altona left MacPherson Park victorious on Saturday. Altona was in the box seat at 2-120 before a Melton comeback left Altona’s last pair at the wicket 15 short of victory. James Grubb (21no) and Simon Jackson (5no) held on, winning on the penultimate ball of the match. Melton was defending 6-200 made off 80 overs the previous weekend. Nathan Allen (4-71) returned the best figures for the Lions. Melton is in the unfamiliar surrounds of 11th on the 14-team ladder, its nine points being nine off the top-six pace of Box Hill (18). In second XI, Melton won by 31 runs against Altona, 193 to 162. Jake Charge took 4-43 as Melton’s leading bowler. In third XI, Melton powered past Altona’s 135 by making 6-272. Mark Jones (80), Jarrod Kennedy (62) and Nathan Pinder (50no) all made half-centuries for the Lions. Melton’s fourths fell to defeat, with Altona making 206 in reply to 150. The VSDCA representative team lost by one wicket at the weekend, going down to the Victorian Country Cricket League at Werribee on Sunday. The VSDCA made 7-269 off 50 overs batting first, with Brendan McGuinness (87) and Tim O’Brien (42) top scoring. VCCL reached 9-270 on the final ball of the match, with Sean Ayres (4-29) best of the VSDCA bowlers. \ TP

WDCA Melton Centrals have fallen a game off top-four pace after a five-wicket loss to St Johns in A-turf on Saturday. Abhishek Aggarwal (22) and Matthew Murphy (25) were the only batsmen to pass 20 as Centrals were all out by the 35th over for 134 at Blackwood Reserve. St Johns reached 5-136 in reply by the 33rd over, dropping Melton Centrals (21 points) to sixth on the table behind Bellbridge (24) and Williamstown Imperials (fourth, 27). Melton South is still ninth on the table (12) after a 57-run loss to Williamstown Imperials. The Imps scored 219 before bowling out South for 162 in reply. Tristan Francis (4-40) and Daniel Jackson (3-44) were South’s best with the ball. Michael Pisani (78) was the only South batsman to score more than 15. \ BCA Darley lost by 10 wickets but was never threatened with outright defeat as Wendouree opted to bat the full day in first grade. Darley (six points) remains ninth, 12 off finals pace, after the 90 to 9-275 defeat. Wendouree passed the target without a wicket lost but, rather than declare and bowl again, decided to bat on. \

bacchus blast a top effort BOWLS

Bacchus Marsh fortified its standing in the top four with a 33-shot thrashing of Romsey in Central Highlands Bowls division 1 on Saturday. The 18-106 to 0-73 thrashing puts Bacchus Marsh in the top four by 23 points, its 109 well clear of fifth-placed Kyneton (86) and back within reach of second-placed Woodend (117). Alan Maher tied as the biggest-winning skip of the week, up by 18 shots against Romsey’s Cam Austin, 29-11. Dilun Filuk, Justin Webster and Amy Gloury also won their rinks for Bacchus Marsh. At Kyneton, the fifth-placed home team

earned a draw with Woodend, albeit coming away with two points less in the 10-84 to 8-84 result. Kyneton Golf capitalised on the result with its 14-104 to 4-82 win against Trentham, meaning Golf (108 points) will almost certainly spend the Christmas break in the top four ahead of town rival Kyneton (fifth, 86). Lancefield also capitalised on Woodend’s draw to open a big gap at the top of the ladder, its 17-109 to 1-92 win against Gisborne boosting it to 131 points, ahead of Woodend on 117. In metro Saturday pennant, Melton lost no ground on fourth place in spite of its 16-96 to 2-65 defeat against MCC. \ TP

marsh in form for repeat title bid TWENTY20

Sunbury will stand between Bacchus Marsh and back-to-back Gisborne and District Cricket Association premier division Twenty20 titles when the teams meet in the final at Clarke Oval tonight. Bacchus Marsh eliminated form team Riddell with a 27-run semi-final win, while Sunbury beat Sunbury United by 29 runs. An even spread of Sunbury scorers helped it to 8-176 against United, with Michael Treweek and Jason McGann equal top scorers with 34. McGann led the bowling with 2-15 as Sunbury United was restricted to 8-147.

United was 8-98 before a rally from Joshua Wallace (21no) and Mark Boyes (22no) took it to the end of the 20 overs but without being able to match the run-rate required. Bacchus Marsh beat Riddell in the other semi-final, its 6-192 beating the Bombers’ 165. Riddell’s Hayden Castle made 58 in the chase but started to run out of partners as the Bombers struggled. The final at Clarke Oval in Sunbury starts at 5.45pm today. In district division, Ashfield and Rupertswood will meet in the final at Boardman Oval in Sunbury, also from 5.45 this evening. \ TP
