Footscray has created Lacrosse Victoria history by becoming the first club to win the men’s and women’s state league titles in the same season. The Scray has long been the easybeat on the men’s side of the ledger, and the club endured pent-up frustration as the bridesmaid of the women’s competition in three successive years. That all changed on Saturday when Footscray proclaimed itself the No.1 club in Victoria. ■ SPORT, PAGE 53

Are you west and proud?

Hobsons Bay Libraries and RMIT social work students are teaming up to capture some of the history of the GLBTIQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer) communities in Hobsons Bay and Melbourne’s West. The WESTANDPROUD Project will be an archive of both personal stories and significant events up to the present day. The project aims to expand understandings of local history by incorporating the voices of GLBTIQ people, who have often been excluded from traditional narratives. It is about celebrating pride, visibility and diversity. Expressions of interest to participate in the WESTANDPROUD Project are now open. This survey is aimed at people who live, work, study or play in Hobsons Bay and/or Melbourne’s Western suburbs. Information, photos, newspaper clippings and any other mementos/ ephemera to do with significant community events and milestones in order to compile a timeline of events will also be collected. The survey can be filled out online via www.surveymonkey.com/s/ westandproud or visit a library branch for a hard copy. Round one expressions of interest will close Friday, 4th October. The project will culminate in a website and hard-copy archive. This will be launched with a celebratory event as part of GOWEST at the 2014 Midsumma Festival in January.

Fire service levy update

Hobsons Bay City Council will continue to monitor concerns and issues raised from residents and ratepayers for the new Fire Service Property Levy and report any inequities to the Department of Treasury and Finance and the MAV. For the first time, the fire services levy will be paid through Council rates notices from July 2013, as opposed to insurance premiums.

regional rail link works

Commuters on the Bendigo and Sunbury lines face an 11-day rail shutdown next month. Buses will replace trains between Albion and Footscray from October 3 to the last service on October 13 for major Regional Rail Link (RRL) works. Footscray projects include bridge works at Nicholson and Hopkins streets, structural work on the freight flyover and an upgrade of Footscray railway station. The existing West Footscray station will be demolished during the closure and passengers will use the new station from October 14. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said the shutdown would speed up the project and allow the works to be carried out safely. “The work [will lead to] opening of the new station footbridge at West Footscray railway station, ahead of the operational opening of the new station at the end of the occupation,” he said. Premier Denis Napthine said the project had created 3481 direct jobs and was proceeding ahead of schedule. “Not only is the project creating nearly 3500

council calls for action to protect river Maribyrnong council is stepping up its campaign to protect the Maribyrnong River from overdevelopment. The council last week voted to put a motion to the coming Municipal Association of Victoria conference calling for a review of planning controls to minimise the impact of overshadowing by new developments on sensitive areas such as school playgrounds, public parks and river frontages. The motion follows Planning Minister

Matthew Guy’s approval last month of an amendment to the Maribyrnong planning scheme that paves the way for about 18 high-rise towers up to 32 storeys on the former industrial Josephs Road precinct, alongside the Maribyrnong River. The redevelopment will overshadow St Monica’s Primary School, which has been described as an “acceptable” outcome by the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure. On September 14, Mr Guy announced planning controls along the Yarra River

He said specific areas had also been identified along the Maribyrnong River that would benefit from site-specific height and setback controls. “The Maribyrnong River is the greatest natural asset of Melbourne’s western suburbs,” Mr Guy said. “Importantly, this will strengthen existing planning controls and introduce new controls to protect the river banks from inappropriate development.” But the minister would not reveal on which

former pm to move ‘a bit further west’

FIREFIGHTER COMPO

A bid to introduce legislation to give firefighters easier access to cancer compensation was last week voted down by the state government. Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland had called on the government to introduce ‘fair protection for firefighters’ legislation into the lower house. A Greens bill that passed federal parliament with bipartisan support in 2011 removed the burden of proof from Commonwealth-employed firefighters working in airports or the ACT. Last Wednesday, Ms Hartland’s bid to introduce similar legislation in Victoria lost by two votes. “The government waited until firefighters were out of the room before they betrayed them and voted down my motion,” she said. As reported by the Weekly last month, the government said it would establish an assessment panel for professional and volunteer firefighter claims, but said it was “not convinced” of the link between firefighting and certain cancers. MFB western zone commander Frank Besanko, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2007, said the link between firefighting and cancers had been established internationally. \ GD

kids get on board in bid for high school yarraville

A giant board game unveiled on Monday is the latest volley in the fight for a local high school in the Yarraville area. Scores of children turned out to play on the SKYHigh ‘Schoolopoly’ board, designed to highlight the need for a school to cater for a booming school-aged population in Seddon, Kingsville and Yarraville. The extra-large localised version of Monopoly is being used to send a message

to the state government as it starts planning projects to be funded in next year’s budget. SKYHigh president Melissa Horne said the group now had about 3000 members pushing for the school, with surrounding schools nearing capacity. She has been meeting existing high schools in the area to work towards a united voice in the group’s push. “Unfortunately, we have written to the Premier and the Minister for Education, asking for a meeting and we haven’t heard back.” \ BM

greeting at our gateway footscray

A traditional indigenous Welcome to Country is greeting visitors to Footscray following completion of Maribyrnong’s first councilcommissioned public artwork. Local indigenous artists Maree Clarke and Vicki Couzens, working with fabricator Jeph Neale, created Wominjeka Tarnuk Yooroom (Welcome Bowl) to welcome newly arrived migrants and refugees as well as the wider Footscray community and visitors. The $180,000 artwork was unveiled last week on the corner of Paisley and Nicholson

streets. Consisting of 10 large bluestones forming the shape of a traditional ‘coolamon’, a wooden vessel used to hold burning leaves and foliage at traditional Welcome to Country ceremonies, the artwork emits a fine mist of water in certain weather to mimic the coolamon’s smoking effect. Maribyrnong arts and cultural advisory board chairman Cr Martin Zakharov said the council was committed to developing public art projects in Maribyrnong. Cr Zakharov said it was important for the community to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. \ BM

‘useless’ land cops levy

working-class clan’s wordy war fringe festival

((MICHAEL COPP)

Seven months after Hobsons Bay council vowed to investigate ways to progress development of a dormant Altona estate, frustrated landholders say nothing has happened. The Burns Road industrial estate, which many describe as “dead land”, has lain undeveloped since its 1929 subdivision into about 500 lots averaging 640 square metres. However, the council’s planning scheme won’t allow development on estate lots under two hectares. Now, the landholders have been hit with a fire levy of about $200 per title. Michael Sergi (pictured at the site) said landholders collectively paid more than $140,000 annually in rates, plus water charges even though the estate had no water, drainage or sewers. “The only people making money here are the council,” he said. “All the landowners, they’re the ones that are paying. “Council needs to explain to everyone why they haven’t done anything.” Another landowner, Angelo Stoios, who bought his lots in 1972, said he felt neither the levy nor council rates were justifiable. “We’ve reached a stalemate,” he said. “Who knows if it will ever come to fruition because the council’s been very slack over the years on any requests or any movements on it.’’ Cr Tony Briffa, who pushed for a report on

the estate in February, said the estate land was useless. “Because of an old subdivision, its [lots are] only the size of a residential block so they can’t actually build anything on it for industrial purposes. “So it’s a useless block that they can’t actually utilise to build anything on. “They haven’t previously had to worry

about insurance because, let’s face it, if a fire goes through it’s only going to burn the grass and not destroy any property. “These people are paying rates and the fire services levy on property that they can’t build anything on. It’s useless.” The council had not responded to the Weekly’s questions about the estate by the time of going to press. \ GD

What happens when each member of a working-class clan thinks they’re a better poet than everyone else in their family? Kingsville-based poet/performer Paul Mitchell brings to life a dysfunctional family of working-class poets in a solo show in this year’s Fringe Festival. Being a Wheel Family: Meet the McGeres takes audiences deep into the strange psyches of Rob, Steele and Carrie McGere. Construction worker Rob writes his poetry on a building site and stores it in his esky, while son Steele and wife Carrie also have the poetry bug. Can poetry unite them or will it divide them forever? “The McGeres take no prisoners, grammar lessons or uni courses,” Mitchell says. \ BM » Being a Wheel Family: Meet the McGeres will be performed at the Imperial Hotel, corner of Bourke and Spring streets, Melbourne, from this Sunday to October 6.

hats off to designer’s former ‘hobby’

laneway to host ‘great live show’ footscray

(MICHAEL COPP)

Described as “the festival for discerning music fans”, the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival will return to Footscray on February 1. The line-up announced on Tuesday includes Australian favourites Adalita, Cloud Control, Dick Diver and The Jezabels as well as international acts Four Tet, Frightened Rabbit and Jamie XX. Programming director and co-founder Danny Rogers said artists had been chosen on the strength of their music and “their ability to deliver an insanely great live show”. “It’s why we couldn’t resist bringing a few international acts back and why we’ll be thrilled to introduce some of the most exciting new artists this side of the world has seen for the first time,” he said. The festival will be held on the banks of the Maribyrnong River at Footscray Community Arts Centre. \

HELL ON WHEELS Alcohol and cars can lead to a world of pain, as two who have paid a high price tell Goya Dmytryshchak

S

E

mily Watson loves her baby brother but sometimes she looks at him and sees a monster. On October 31, 2011, Timothy was drink-driving and speeding in a stolen car when it crashed, killing 16-year-old passenger Ebony Dunsworth. Recalling the night she got a phone call like it was yesterday, Emily says it still feels surreal. Earlier this year, she had a “bit of a breakdown”. She hopes that by telling the story from the other side, it could sink in for at least one driver. Emily answered the phone. It was the Royal Melbourne Hospital with the information that her brother was injured. Fighting for life in the intensive care unit, Timothy wasn’t allowed to know the girl was dead. But when his condition stabilised, a nurse told Emily: “It’s time.” “I went through his friends one by one – because all his best friends were in the car,” Emily says. “Then I finally got to the girl who was in the car and I said to him, ‘Timmy, do you remember the girl?’ “And he just looked at me. And I said, ‘She died, Tim’. And he completely broke down, lost it. That was one of the hardest things to tell your baby brother – that he has just destroyed so many people’s lives and he’s killed somebody because of his driving,” she says. Timothy, 23 at the time of the crash, will be 30 when he gets out of prison.

Once the life of the party with hundreds of mates, Timothy has only one friend who visits him in jail. Emily says she is torn when she looks at her brother, 11 years her junior. “He was my baby brother,” she says. “I always mothered him, always protected him, always looked after him – but this one, I couldn’t do anything to help him. “My love for my brother hasn’t changed because of this, but also, in saying that, I hate what he’s done, what he’s caused. “I see my brother the same as when I saw him when he was five, 10, 15. I love him so much and want to protect him, but there’s nothing I can do. He made this choice. “And then the other half of me sees my baby brother hurting and in distress and it’s so ... so ... just being torn. “There’s too many people; too many sisters like me, and brothers. “We’re kind of torn. Half of me looks at him and just thinks, I want nothing to do with you, I cannot believe what you’ve done, you’re a monster. “I don’t know how people can live with themselves after this.” Pale, shaking and crying, Emily composes herself and says it’s nothing compared with what Ebony’s family must feel.

Left: Emily Watson, whose brother is in jail for culpable driving after the car he was in crashed, causing the death of a passenger. Right: Amanda Pollard’s car hit someone while she was drunk. She now speaks out about it as a caution to others. (Michael Copp)

wapping Jimmy Choos for prison-issue sneakers was a very public fall from grace for Amanda Pollard. Publicly shamed as the drink-driving banker, Amanda rues the day she decided to drive after drinking “way too much”. In November, 2009, Amanda started a threeand-a-half-year jail sentence, 2.5 years of which was suspended. She tears up and asks her teenage son to go to his room before describing her introduction to Deer Park Women’s Prison. “They didn’t have any space in the prison so I was put in solitary confinement for nine days,” Amanda says. “They call it the slot, which is meant to be a prison within a prison. It’s supposed to be for discipline. “The second day I was in there – you are only allowed out for one hour – I just remember an officer saying, ‘Airing, airing’, and I thought, ‘Oh, that must be laundry. And then I found out we were to be aired. They took us out for an hour to ‘air’ us. We were the laundry.” It started one Thursday night, in April, 2008, when Amanda’s choices resulted in a worker by the side of the road having his legs smashed. A manager with a leading bank, she was out celebrating with colleagues after winning a trip to Las Vegas. “Only 10 in the country won this trip and I was the high achiever who won it,” Amanda says. Her flight was in a few days and she was full of cheer. When it was time to leave, Amanda realised it was too late for her usual silver-service driver, so she decided to get a taxi. She even sat down in the taxi. But then the driver said something that triggered an old trauma and she got out. That’s when she decided to drive. Amanda doesn’t recall if she looked at her mobile phone or the clock. But something distracted her for a split second and that’s all it took. She was so alcohol-affected that she didn’t realise she had hit a man. She continued driving with a mangled wheel and the entire skin of her car’s passenger side ripped off. Only later, in hospital, did she find out that a worker parked on the side of the CityLink tollway was also a patient. “Words just can’t describe hearing those words – that you injured someone and they’re in hospital,” Amanda says. “It was so surreal. I just screamed and screamed.” In November, 2009, she was jailed and the next 12 months were spent going over the night inside her head. “Oh God, the regret. The pain. My son. The loss of control. When he was having difficulty, not having the ability to pick up the phone. What goes through your mind at night-time when the door locks and you hear the slamming of the door is just helplessness and just the torment ... waking up in the middle of the night.” Amanda has finished parole and can have a drink before driving if she wants. “I will never ever, until the day I die – ever,” she says. “I’ll be zero for the rest of my life, insofar as going near a car.” \ gdmytryshchak@mmpgroup.com.au

your voice DON’T TURN OUR STREET INTO A CAR PARK (Weekly, September 18) As a resident on Eleanor Street and mother of a small child, I find the lack of consultation over the Western Hospital car park extension plan appalling. Already it is dangerous crossing Eleanor Street during peak-use due to people not sticking to the speed limit, an unrelenting throng of parents picking up children from the school and flustered hospital patients seeking the best car-parking options. I do not know a resident on the street whose car has not been sideswiped, had side mirrors smashed or front lights broken from an already chaotic parking problem. Maribrynong council needs to provide a disincentive for using Eleanor Street, not an incentive. MELANIE AUDREY \ VIA ONLINE

It’s more than disappointing that Maribyrnong council has not demonstrated in its actions what it has been elected to do; that is,

represent the local municipality, including those who live in Eleanor Street. Maribyrnong councillors were elected by people in Eleanor Street to make decisions about services in the neighbourhood, decisions that the children, families and residents should benefit from. The decision to move the only entrance and exit point of the proposed car park into the street, where not one person was consulted, is not about the people. Who is exactly benefiting from this decision? NEWTOFOOTSCRAY \ VIA ONLINE The car park extension plan is illconsidered. The council really needs to use Gordon Street. Why won’t the hospital use its land? Very odd since it gains the most. The council has sadly lost its way. KARASTAR TUDDIN \ VIA ONLINE

providing the “jobs” he talks about, then why the accompanying growth in population? This is not about providing for projected population growth, based on fertility levels which remain low, but on actively projecting the growth by luring buyers to come here. What about the unemployed already here? There should be job creation programs to stimulate productivity, and municipal improvements, and industries. No business can survive without profits, but Mr Guy is all about “growth”, not about providing long-term jobs. NIMBY \ VIA ONLINE

Don’t let hearing loss spoil your golden years A government-accredited hearing services provider, Active Audiology in Altona has a commitment to engaging with the community, particularly older people who may be in a nursing home or are seniors club members. Owner and audiologist Cris Ivanidis says he’s really got to know his local community and has had, since the beginning of his 10-year tenure, a focus of providing genuinely helpful, impartial advice. “Our team delivers products to nursing homes and senior clubs and provide free services to eligible pensioners and DVA Gold Card holders under the Commonwealth Hearing Service Scheme,” Ivanidis explains. “We also provide hearing assessments and hearing aid fittings, with free seven-day trials of any hearing aid model.” He opened his clinic with the aim of providing affordable, personalised hearing services while remaining independent. “Being independent means we’re not owned by a large corporation so we don’t ‘push’ particular brands. We have a whole range of products,” Ivanidis says. “And we understand people can’t afford to spend a lot on hearing aids; we generally find solutions that can cost half as much as what others may charge.” Most people come into his clinic because they’re feeling isolated and have lost their confidence in social situations. “They’re looking for a solution that doesn’t cost much, is small and not overly visible. We can deliver that.”

Hearing aids that look invisible from only

For a very limited time, Active Audiology has a range of European designed and manufactured hearing aids available from only $995. • Improved hearing in noisy situations, especially restaurants & group conversations • Easy and comfortable conversation over the telephone • Enhanced speech clarity for TV and music listening.

SAILING

MUSIC

Hobsons Bay Yacht Club will bring out the big guns on Saturday to mark its 125th anniversary sailing season ‘open day’. According to club captain Kevin LeNepveu, the club is the oldest of its kind in Victoria, and possibly Australia, continuously occupying its original site in Nelson Place. Members of the community are being invited to watch a gun salute at 2.45pm on the Strand. “The day is the opening of the club summer sailing season and is part of our 125 years celebrations,” Mr LeNepveu said. “As part of the celebration, we’ll be having wandering minstrels in costume, official unfurling of the club burgee [flag] accompanied by the firing of the big guns on the Strand by the official gunners dressed in period costume.” Mr LeNepveu said a direct descendant of Captain Henry Press, the club’s founder and first commodore in 1888, would be a guest of honour. \ GD

What’s on artists in lockdown A group of artists is bunkering down in Footscray tonight to embark on a 24-hour art spree.

From the outside, this villa – one of three on the block - looks on the small side, but it’s surprisingly spacious. The well-maintained residence has two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, including the main bedroom with en suite; bathroom; laundry with storage and outdoor access; open-plan living-dining room; and a kitchen with ample bench space and stainless-steel appliances, including a dishwasher. You’ll also appreciate a split-system, intercom, downlights, roller blinds, a single garage and off-street parking space. A glass sliding door from the living-dining room leads to an undercover entertainment area with cafe blinds and decking underfoot. Beyond is a low-maintenance landscaped garden. The villa is ideal to live in but would also make a sound investment with a rental potential of $450 a week. Parks, shops, restaurants, Spotswood train station, West Gate Freeway and Princess Highway are nearby. \

This charming Victorian – nestled among other well-cared for properties from the same era – combines renovated spaces with touches of yesteryear to provide a cute cottage feel. Dado panelling, polished floorboards, front door with leadlight window and a front verandah evoke earlier, simpler times. There are two double bedrooms, a bathroom with skylight, lounge room, separate meals area and an updated kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops and Bosch stainless-steel dishwasher. Other features include a split-system, exposed beams, decorative pendant lights, timber french doors, attic storage, paved courtyard with pergola, and low-maintenance gardens. The property is in the heart of Footscray with Middle Footscray railway station, Footscray Market, cafes and Harris Reserve within walking distance, while the Princes Highway is easily accessible by car. \

here’s a new way to buy cars. Dodge in America has stolen an idea from the wedding industry. You know about wedding registries, where the happy couple nominates a wish list at a department store and their fortunate guests get to buy them something from it? Would you believe the Dodge Dart Registry? If you want a new Dodge Dart (it’s about the size of a Mazda 3) but don’t have the wherewithal, you simply establish an on-line registry and invite anyone you can think of to buy a part of it on your behalf. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Cheapskates will go for a tier-one gift such as a handbrake lever or a warning lamp, but your true friends will be right up there with a tier-four gift and get you an airbag or two, or maybe the entire engine. Smart would-be car owners set up their registry when several gift-receiving opportunities are imminent, such as birthdays, Christmas, graduation or whatever. And they can thank their benefactors with just a click or two. Eileen Wunderlich from Dodge in the US says this is the first time a car company has created a crowd-funding platform to encourage people to buy a new car. Since the idea was launched in January, nearly 7000 people have set up registries, many of them students moving out of home for the first time.

“true friends will be there with an airbag”

However, the number of cars that have been fully funded in the first six months of the plan is rather more modest. That would be two. But the longer Wunderlich speaks to me, the more I get the impression that the whole exercise is about creating awareness of the car through social media rather than scoring sales. “The number one objective of the registry is to build awareness of the Dart,” she admits. “It has been created so people can engage with the brand and view it as digitally

innovative. Those who sign up for a registry, and those who sponsor parts, are learning about the car’s features. The registry thus becomes a secretly educational tool. And we’ve learnt that social media can be used to make the process of buying a car more approachable to more people. A fund-raising goal can be anything from a down payment to the full price of the car.” The nice thing about it for Dodge is that, once registries are established and people start

contributing, registry owners feel a growing moral commitment to the purchase. While there’s no contractual obligation on them to buy, and contributors are warned that recipients can use donations any way they please, at the end of the day they’d have to live with a whole lot of questions from curious donors. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

A cup at last for the scray Lacrosse / women

Footscray has shed its enduring bridesmaid tag by becoming Lacrosse Victoria women’s state league premier. The Scray has played off in each of the past nine grand finals with the 2009 edition their only success. The Joanne Tippett-coached players finally got the monkey off their backs with a 9-6 win over Newport in the season decider at Lakeside Stadium on Saturday. Scray co-captain Sarah Mollison said her side was undaunted by the weight of history. “I don’t think there were nerves,” she said. “Everyone was just anxious and really excited to get onto the field and get the job done. “Everyone was so happy after the game – there were lots of smiles, tears, cheering and hugging. It was a really fun day.” The Scray led 7-2 at half-time, but there was still work to be done.

“That was the biggest lead we’ve had against them all season,” Mollison said. “We knew they were going to come out hard in the second half.” The Scray managed to hold off the fast-finishing Porters to claim the title. Mollison scored three goals to finish with 53 for the year. She cherished the chance to play in a premiership with her home club after spending years plying her trade overseas. Theadora Kwas was the other multiple scorer, with two. Goalkeeper Erin Mollison had a major influence, especially when the Porters threatened after the break. “She played a great game in goal for us,” Mollison said of her cousin. “Her leadership was important.” But every Scray player stood up when required and did it within the structures laid out by Tippett. “Everyone played their role,” Mollison said. “We are such a united team.” \ LJ

first flag caps club trifecta Lacrosse / men

Footscray came like a bolt from the blue to claim its first-ever Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league title. The Scray was not on the premiership radar at the mid-point of the season and arrived at the finals as the underdog among the four surviving teams. The Cinderella story was completed on Saturday when the Scray put years of on-field hardship behind it to upset Surrey Park 10-7 in the grand final at Lakeside Stadium. Tim Lane, the 25-year-old co-captain who has been involved with the Scray since his early teenage years, was asked if he had ever envisaged the day the Scray would become champions of Victorian lacrosse. “Nah, nah, nah,” he said. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet.” The Scray players did it for themselves and the ones who had gone before them, those who kept the club alive when they were regularly on the receiving end of lopsided defeats. “In the back of my mind were all the people who have played at the club and brought it to what it is now,” Lane said. “There were people at the celebrations who played when they used to get beaten in state league by 30 goals every week. It feels fantastic to do it for them, too.” The final was up for grabs well into the second half. The turning point came on the back of third-quarter brilliance from Jeffrey Melsopp. Melsopp, one of the sternest defenders on the day, had a stick in two crucial goals. “One of them got us even and the other put us back in front,” Lane said. “It was pretty much a game changer.”

Most valuable: Footscray goalkeeper Callan Ahrens was safe as houses in front of the cage. (MICHAEL COPP)

2013 Lacrosse grand finals State league men Footscray 10 d Surrey Park 7. The champions: Danny Blau, Sage D’Costa, Jeffrey Melsopp, James Lawerson, Jack Mooney, Tim Lane, Dane Kowal, Andrew Regan, Joel Fanner, Luke Jacques, Ben Liebel, Thomas Mollison, Peter Kwas, Chris Plumb, Lee Jones and Callan Ahrens. State league women Footscray 9 d Newport 6.

Peter Kwas, a 15-year-old wunderkind, underlined his status as one of the most promising youngsters in the league. Kwas fired two goals past one of the best goalkeepers in the competition, Chris Tillotson. “He’s just got a nous for the game and he loves it more than anyone,” Lane said. “But he really doesn’t look out of place playing with adults.” Danny Blau, Sage D’Costa and James Lawerson scored two goals apiece. The grand final MVP went to Scray goalkeeper Callan Ahrens, who made a number of crucial saves. The Scray men and women won state league

premierships on the same day. The under-18 women made it a Scray trifecta. “It’s phenomenal that our sides won on the same day and the under-18s as well,” Lane said. “We’re the first amalgamated club to have won grand finals on the same day, so it’s pretty special.” The Scray men’s side featured two Australian squad members: co-captain Chris Plumb and Lawerson. Lane is adamant that with youngsters such as Kwas, D’Costa and Joel Fanner, the Scray won’t be one-season wonders. “They’re going to be around for a long time and that will hold us in good stead,” he said.

our Juniors get their day in the sun

T

he next generation put on a show in the Western Region Football League juniors this season. But only a select few sides had the privilege of running out on grand final day and, from those, only one could be premier. In this two-page Weekly special, we pay tribute to the clubs that made it all the way to the holy grail and the players who made it happen.

Under-18 division 2 Glenorden Hawks only just managed to hold off the fast-finishing Newport Power by eight points in a tense grand final. Leading by 29 at half-time, the question was how much the Hawks would win by, but the Power surged with a six-goal-to-two second half to make it a thrilling finish. Nathan Johnson was the difference between the two sides with four goals in a best-afield display for the top-ranked Hawks. Mitchell Post, Gueny MacHar and Brayden Trewin were other big-game players for the winners. Glenorden 10.7 (67) d Newport Power 9.5 (59).

Under-16A Altona Juniors were a class above the rest en route to an unbeaten season. And it was no different in the grand final, where they were far superior to a wasteful Hoppers Crossing in a 34-point win. Yousef El Hawli and Steele Aburrow were a handful for the Warriors’ defence with three goals apiece. Isaac Corvo, Jordan Roache and Jared Moore were the influential Warriors to hit their straps on the biggest day. Altona Juniors 9.9 (63) d Hoppers Crossing 3.11 (29).

Under-16B Melbourne’s fickle weather wreaked havoc on the weekend this grand final was played, resulting in just two goals for the game. So while it may not have been the prettiest match, it will be a tale to tell in years to come for the 22 Albion players, who won a grand final over St Albans with just one goal. Joshua Clark was the hero for the Cats with his third-quarter goal; before that it was a goal drought in the wet. When it got tight at the end, Adam Korsak, James Leach and Caleb McPherson lifted to get the Cats over the line. Albion 1.6 (12) d St Albans 1.4 (10).

Under-16C Newport Power ruled over the regular season and left nothing to chance in the grand final. The minor premiers Power got their hands dirty early to open up a 25-point quarter-time lead over St Bernard’s and gradually increased it as the game went on to win by 59 points. Aeneas Gallivan had his kicking boots on with four goals for the Power, while Nayef

Hamad, Mohammed Taleb and Ayeman Nafrak were the star performers. Newport Power 16.8 (104) d St Bernard’s 6.9 (45).

Under-15A Werribee Districts got home by the skin of their teeth over Yarraville-Seddon in the big dance. The one-point victory came through sheer persistence after being held scoreless in the first quarter and trailing by 10 points at half-time. The Districts’ second half comeback was inspired by Callum O’Malley, Judah Dundon and Alexander Psarros. Joel Russell was the only multiple goalkicker on the ground with two for Districts. Werribee Districts 3.6 (24) d Yarraville-Seddon 2.11 (23).

54 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY WEEKLY \ SEPTEMBER 25, 2013

Under-15B Caroline Springs Lakers made it a second one-point result in under-15s by edging out Werribee Centrals in a stunning come-from-behind performance. The Lakers appeared down and out without a score and were trailing 34-0 at quarter-time. But they got back into the match with four goals in the second quarter and sealed the comeback with four in the last. Joel Ives, Dechlan Markovski and Sam Cannolo-Jackson were instigators of the Lakers’ fightback. Caroline Springs 8.7 (55) d Werribee Centrals 8.6 (54).

Under-14A Williamstown Juniors played the role of party poopers and had a day out of their own. With Hoppers Crossing going through the

season unbeaten and the Juniors qualifying in third, most felt a Warriors victory was a fait accompli. But someone forgot to tell Juniors stars Harry Jennings, Jack McCall and Jack Mason, who dominated as the Juniors got up by 14 points in a shock result. McCall was the go-to player in the forward line with four goals in an outstanding effort. Williamstown Juniors 9.6 (60) d Hoppers Crossing 7.4 (46).

Under-14B Sanctuary Lakes claimed top finals billing on the back of the tightest defence in the league. The Sharks turned up the blowtorch even more in the grand final by restricting Yarraville-Seddon to a single goal in the 29-point win. Leo Eliepa, Jack Neilson and Jack Gatt were the driving forces behind the victory.


Under-13A One goal and a whole lot of behinds was enough for Williamstown Juniors to seal a 13-point grand final win over St Bernard’s. The Juniors were the top side over the course of the season and their astronomical percentage of 583.06 was testament to their dominance. But the decider turned into a hard slog, with Liam Dawson’s third-quarter goal the only one kicked for the game. Matthew Dempsey, Tom Warner and Jack Harrison were key players for the Juniors. Williamstown Juniors 1.10 (16) d St Bernard’s 0.3 (3).

Under-13B

Under-18 division 1 Every young footballer strives to finish their under-age playing days as the premier in this division. Hoppers Crossing Warriors did it this year to snatch a fourth successive flag. Coach Brad Murphy and captain Blake Jago received the premiership cup after the 87-point whipping of the St Albans Saints in the grand final, which capped an unbeaten season. Jago, Luke Henderson and Mitch Appleby were the standout performers for the Warriors, while Daniel Strnak booted four goals. Hoppers Crossing 17.17 (119) d St Albans 5.2 (32). Winning feeling: That’s what it’s all about for Hoppers Crossing, who made it four sucessive Under-18 Division 1 premierships. (MICHAEL COPP)

The Sharks peppered the goals but were fairly inaccurate, but it didn’t cost them on this occasion. Sanctuary Lakes 4.12 (36) d Yarraville-Seddon 1.1 (7).

Under-14C Newport Power was a near-unstoppable force on the way to a premiership. The Power finished on top of the ladder with an incredible percentage of 486.99 and the only blemish came way back in round one. They were irresistible in the grand final, beating Williamstown Juniors by 112 points and keeping them to just five behinds for the game. Jai Veljanovski, James Martyn and Omar Alkantar starred in the decider for the Power, while Zac Harper kicked four goals. Newport Power 17.15 (117) d Williamstown Juniors 0.5 (5).

Werribee Districts hunted down most sides in their way in the home-and-away rounds but suffered a shock loss to St Albans in week one of the finals. The Districts were hell-bent on lightning not striking twice and atoned in the best possible way with a 61-point grand final drubbing of the Saints. It was all one-way traffic from the moment Callan Gilboy, Connor Thar and Kirk Aitken started locating the ball for Districts. They had eight goalkickers, including two each to Aitken, Thar and Max Lazaridis. Werribee Districts 11.10 (76) d St Albans 2.3 (15).

Under-13C Altona Juniors were the clear standout side in the regular season, finishing four games clear on top of the ladder. But, as we know, grand finals are a different ball game and this was too close for comfort for Altona. They managed to take out the title of champions but did it with an edge-of-your-seat, four-point win over Williamstown Juniors. When Saxon Rodwell, Jordon Glowacki and Campbell McCracken were up and about, Altona looked the stronger side, but Williamstown went down with a fight. Altona Juniors 3.3 (21) d Williamstown Juniors 2.5 (17).

one major in the first half. Led by Lachlan Rzanovski, Harrison White and Connor Linehan-Cunningham, the Centurions booted three goals to zip in the second half for an against-the-odds win. Werribee Centrals 4.5 (29) d Flemington Juniors 2.4 (16).

Under-12C Hoppers Crossing needed a spectacular fourth quarter to record a runaway 25-point win over Sanctuary Lakes in the grand final. The Warriors, unbeaten in the home-and-away campaign, were a touch off colour in the first three quarters and went into the last with a 10-point deficit. But with the guidance of Jake Collier, Eben Geelhuizen and Rohan Matthews, the Warriors found their feet and delivered the KO blow with a five-goal-to-nil last term. Hoppers Crossing 8.13 (61) d Sanctuary Lakes 5.6 (36).

Under-11A Williamstown Juniors had to scrap their way to a 12-point grand final win over Yarraville-Seddon. Lachlan Downey, Liam Conway and Tane Roordinic were the ever-presents over four quarters for Juniors. The Juniors qualified for the finals in second place, but the premiership was theirs for the taking after they toppled minor premiers Point Cook in the preliminary final. Williamstown Juniors 3.4 (22) d Yarraville-Seddon 1.4 (10).

Under-11B Despite wayward kicking for goal, Hoppers Crossing held on to claim a nine-point victory over Sunshine Heights in the grand final. The Warriors led at every change, with Cameron Curnuck, Kane Hynes and Aiden De Pretoro cornerstones to the victory.

The Warriors completed an unbeaten season but had to survive two close finals to clinch the flag. Hoppers Crossing 2.10 (22) d Sunshine Heights 2.1 (13).

Under-11C Werribee Districts caused a grand final boilover by beating minor premiers Sunshine Kangaroos by two points. Districts qualified in third place and were rank underdogs, but big second and fourth quarters and the Roos’ inaccurate shooting for goal meant an unlikely premiership. Jaelen Pavlidis was best-afield for Districts with his side’s only two goals of the game. Werribee Districts 2.3 (15) d Sunshine 1.7 (13). \

Hoppers Crossing Werribee Districts Williamstown Juniors Altona Juniors Caroline Springs Newport Power Albion Glenorden Sanctuary Lakes Werribee Centrals

Ten different clubs won junior premierships, with Hoppers Crossing, Werribee Districts and Williamstown Juniors leading the way with three apiece. That leaves 22 clubs without a premiership between them this season. It goes to show, as every retired footballer knows, that premiership are hard to come by and must be savoured when they do come along.

Under-12A Caroline Springs performed a Houdini act to come away with the premiership. The Lakers were in a spot of bother staring at a 24-point deficit at quarter-time of the grand final against Sanctuary Lakes, but they came back to win by three points, rallying in the final three quarters on the back of stellar performances from Ryley Grech, Tyler Miceli and Leigh Dyson and booting the last five goals of the match. Caroline Springs 5.2 (32) d Sanctuary Lakes 3.11 (29).

Under-12B Werribee Centrals produced one of the biggest shocks with a comeback 13-point win over Flemington Juniors in the grand final. The Centurions qualified for the finals in third place and were in trouble against the minor premiers at half -time after booting just

Team work: Hoppers Crossing’s Nick Jones has no shortage of players lining up to give a helping hand in the U18 division 1 grand final. (MICHAEL COPP) SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 \ MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY WEEKLY 55
