Bandit threatens women with knife in ATM robbery BY EUGENE BENSON A MAN forced two women to withdraw cash from a Niddrie ATM machine last week while he held a knife to her friend’s throat. The women were at a car wash on Dinah Parade in Keilor East about 7.30pm on May 25 when the man got into the back seat of their car,
produced a large knife and asked for their phones and purses. He then ordered them to drive to the ATM on Keilor Road, where he held one woman at knifepoint while the other withdrew cash and gave it to him. The offender then indecently assaulted the women before demanding they drive him back to
Dinah Parade, where he got out and ran off. Moonee Valley’s Detective Senior Constable Daniel Bailey said the Keilor East offender was wearing a black hooded jumper and a blue bandana over his face. He said the man was in his mid20s, with a short, stocky build and an Australia accent.
Senior Constable Bailey said the incident was strikingly similar to one in Footscray on May 2 when a man commandeered a woman’s car near Footscray market.

MOONEE Valley punters are losing almost $200,000 a day on the pokies, according to new figures from the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation. The figures show Moonee Valley residents have already lost more than $59.7 million this financial year compared with last year’s total of $77.9 million. The losses so far this year are the fourth-highest in the western suburbs, behind Brimbank’s $103.8 million, Hume’s $82.4 million and Wyndham’s $65.7 million. Moonee Valley has 726 poker machines in 11 venues. Monash University lecturer Charles Livingstone said poker machines had a considerable impact on communities and councilsupported services in the west, and he called for a change in legislation to reduce maximum bets from $5 to $1. ‘‘This would reduce excessive losses and could cut hourly losses from $600 to $100,’’ he said. ‘‘By bringing down the maximum bet you reduce the harm of the machines.

they needed to be used alongside tools and support services to help problem gamblers. ‘‘What is most helpful for problem gambling is changing the circumstances people find themselves in,’’ he said. ‘‘The accessibility of dangerous gaming machines is too high. “You can go to any pub in the west and spend unprecedented amounts of money. “Toughening the legislation, reducing the number of machines and the money people spend in them, along with education programs, is the most effective way.’’ Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said the council remained concerned by the high gaming expenditure in the city. “As part of the current health plan, council has done research into problem gambling and developed a gaming position paper,” she said. “Council has used the research and positioning paper to help advocate on gambling issues at a state and regional level, including making a submission to the federal government-appointed joint select committee on gambling reform.”

Well wishes give us all hope
BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM A MOONEE Ponds health service has been inundated with calls for help from migrants and residents at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. About six type 2 diabetes cases are diagnosed every week, with a 127 per cent growth in the disease in the past decade. To combat rising rates of the condition, Doutta Galla Community Health has formed a series of education programs targeted at culturally and linguistically diverse communities, older residents and people at high risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Doutta Galla Community Health dietitian Sujata Joshi said the aim of the programs was to combat the increase of diabetes with a focus on chronic disease management, as well as prevention. The Weekly reported earlier this month that almost half of Moonee Valleyresidents were overweight or obese and that 15.5 per cent of them were smokers. The statistics, revealed in a health profile released by the council as part of a health and well-being consultation report, showed that 45 per cent of Moonee Valley residents’ body mass index (BMI) — determined by weight divided by height — classified them as overweight or obese. Men in Moonee Valley were found to be the worst with 23.2 per cent classed as obese, against the state average of 16.4. Ms Joshi said there were now dedicated monthly support group programs to cater for the influx of African,Vietnamese and Chinese migrants developing the disease. “Diabetes is over-represented in migrant communities in Moonee Valley, often double the rate of the general population,” she said. “There’s a combination of reasons for this, including lack of education but also easier access to energy-dense snack foods and drinks considered luxury items in their native country, and these foods become part of their daily staple.” Ms Joshi said while many migrants tried to follow their traditional diet, they often found it difficult to buy the equivalent ingredients
y wishing well thing can be traced back to the late ’60s and one of those drear junction towns that exist only as truck stops on the highway of life. Every year we’d stop at the same town and stay in the same motel. True Blue Motel was the newest in West Wyalong back then and ergo, mum believed, the cleanest. I don’t know who first devised the fiction that the disused mine shaft in the forecourt of the motel was a wishing well. But after eight hours in the car with two kids and a dog, my parents were probably hoping desperately for peace and quiet at the very least. And that steel-mesh-covered hole surrounded by concrete delivered. It was a well of enchantment. I’d beg for dozens of one, two and fivecent pieces and toss them one after the other, each coin carrying the small aspirations of a child. The last time my husband was fit enough to leave his bed, we sat in the hospital coffee shop next to the fountain. Eyeing all the coins in the bottom of the pool, I reached for my purse. “OK,” says he, before adding judiciously “but not a gold one.” There wasn’t time to pack up his room before he was transferred to a bigger, noisier hospital with more machines that go ping. After he was safely installed in a $57,000 bed in ICU, I went back to collect his belongings. Passing the fountain, I tipped the entire contents of my bulging coin purse into its waters. What I wouldn’t give for my beautiful man so true blue.

and opted for more affordable and accessible fattier meats and less healthier options. She called for more accessible health services in the community and for education programs to be developed in native languages for migrants at risk of developing the condition. Ms Joshi said also at higher risk were people over 50 with a higher waist circumference and a history of cardiac disease. To prevent the high rates of diabetes in older

residents, Ms Joshi said the health service offered a diabetes preventive program called Life, consisting of six education sessions over five months. The program, developed by Diabetes Australia, gives advice on combining diet and nutritional education — with a goal to lose at least 5 per cent of body weight — with 30 minutes of exercise a day.

Fears rise over impact of east-west tunnel BY EUGENE BENSON
FLEMINGTON and Kensington residents are growing increasingly concerned about how an eastwest tunnel could affect their neighbourhood. In the recent state budget, Premier Denis Napthine announced his government would prioritise the development of a $6-8 million road tunnel from Hoddle Street to the Tullamarine Freeway. While the announcement was scant on details about its layout, the tunnel exit on the west side was expected to be in Moonee Valleyâ€™s south or in North Melbourne. Flemington resident and Flemington Kensington News editor Mary Keating said it was a topic of hot debate in her neighbourhood. â€˜â€˜Everyone down here is very worried about it, not just about what it could mean with traffic but the impact on Moonee Ponds Creek and Debney Park,â€™â€™ she said. â€˜â€˜Then there are concerns about the noise. The sound barriers on CityLink now have issues, and what
would the impact of even more traffic be?â€™â€™ Moonee Valley Council has long held a position that it would prefer the government to invest in an eastwest rail link rather than a road tunnel. But mayor Narelle Sharpe said the council would likely formalise an updated stance in view of the state governmentâ€™s announcement. She said the council was uncertain about how the proposal would affect Moonee Valley residents and the councilâ€™s infrastructure assets. â€˜â€˜While the exact impact the east-west tunnel link will have on our community is unclear, council is concerned about the possible impact the tunnel will have on our community in respect to traffic patterns and composition, existing open space and Moonee Ponds Creek, any proposed land acquisition and air quality. â€˜â€˜The council is in regular contact with the state government to keep informed in this early stage of planning for the proposed tunnel.â€™â€™ The council resolved at its meeting last Tuesday not to support the eastwest tunnel link.
This way: Linking Melbourne Authorityâ€™s Geoff Rayner, Roads Minister Terry Mulder and Premier Denis Napthine view a map of the east-west link. It is still unclear where the western entrance will be.
Buckleyâ€™s chance! Rail crossing plan wonâ€™t work, says council at the site was ignored in the recent state budget despite advocating by the council and lobbying by Essendon Labor MP Justin Madden, who has committed Labor to grade separation at the site. At last weekâ€™s council meeting, it was revealed that a VicTrackcommissioned feasibility study had recommended that if a grade separation was undertaken it should be with the road going under the rail,
a position not shared by the council. An officersâ€™ report presented to the council suggested VicTrack â€˜â€˜did not adequately investigate all rail under grade separation optionsâ€™â€™ at the site. The report stated: â€˜â€˜Council officers have significant concerns with road under grade separation due to the potential for negative urban design, economic and amenity impacts. â€˜â€˜This option also conflicts with community feedback received during

the consultation process.â€™â€™ Buckley ward councillor Paul Giuliano said engineering the rail line underground would cause the least amount of change, but he had concerns about an increase in road traffic. â€˜â€˜If it happens, the rail should go underground and make the road free, and [the rail tunnel] has to start a fair way back,â€™â€™ Cr Giuliano said. â€˜â€˜It means less change to the streetscape and also means Rose Street, Russell

Council lifts the veil on hot property Not the first time ALAN MURPHY MURPHY’S LORE oonee Valley council has confirmed that the Niddrie property it bought in October 2011 is of strategic importance to enable it to support the shopping centre’s future activities. It is the council’s first statement on the issue, which was the subject of an investigation by inspectors about whether there had been any breaches of the Local Government Act. The council paid $1.47 million for 5 Treadwell Road, planning to demolish the forlorn brick house and build a 20-vehicle car park for Niddrie traders. This was an estimated $270,000 more than what a developer paid a few weeks earlier. No way did property values increase by roughly 20 per cent in that short time. The reality is that council paid well over tote odds in its haste to buy. The local government department’s
In the light: Moonee Valley council has finally explained the circumstances surrounding a property purchase in Niddrie.
response to the Weekly’s questions was that their investigation had concluded. Presumably no breaches of the act. It is not required to judge whether the purchase price was fiscally responsible. The council, at a closed meeting on October 4, had agreed to offer $1.2 million for the property, but a few days later was informed the land had been sold to a developer.
The council renegotiated to buy the property from the developer. The developer’s costs in those few weeks might well have been around $100,000, if stamp duty and finance fees were paid, leaving a tidy profit of nearly $200,000. Now that’s how to make money in a hurry. The council refused to be drawn publicly on the issue in October, claiming confidentiality obligations.
In 2000, the council bought shops from a developer at 42-48 Pascoe Vale Road, Moonee Ponds, ostensibly to build a car park for Clocktower patrons. It had declined an invitation from a leading local real estate agent to buy the properties when they were on the market six months earlier. The agent claims the council subsequently paid more than $200,000 above the market price after the developer discovered redevelopment restrictions. The shops remain to this day, because covenant restrictions limit redevelopment options. Loose lips in and around the council now suggest it was all done “to help out a mate’’ who hadn’t done his duty of care. Five years on the council sold the properties and, given the escalation in land prices at that time, may well have recovered most of its investment. The council has budgeted $12,500 to build the Niddrie car park in 2013-
14. Traders are not expected to help foot the bill. The council says the site is important because of its proximity to other council-owned land and its location in an activity centre. The traders’ car park is a short-term initiative to use the land. Until now the council had not made out an argument as to why it was commercially sound to pay $1.47 million for a car park. Remarkably, no council candidate saw fit to challenge the retiring councillors about the Niddrie purchase at the November elections – when formal council processes were ignored. More’s the pity. Until this week, it seemed the matter had been swept under the carpet, which wasn’t a good look. At least now we know more of the reasons for the purchase, even if what they paid for the property was excessive.

NEWS No parking, no shopping I find it quite disgusting that local residents are being left with nowhere to park as a result of bungled planning and poor management by the Moonee Valley council when it comes to lack of parking on Keilor Road. I received a parking fine a couple of weeks ago on a Friday night. I searched for parking along the road for 20 minutes. As a last resort, I parked in the Safeway car park. On my return to the car park I saw I had received a parking fine. Clearly not enough thought has gone into the amount of parking needed now all these new housing developments are being built. This must be hurting local traders as I know I won’t be going to Keilor Road for dinner any time soon. Wake up Moonee Valley council and listen to the people who pay your wage! Damien Ash, Essendon

Spring Gully Reserve on Steele Creek is my spot. It’s quiet and I can take my dog Bailey for a walk and let him run around off the leash. What would you like to see changed around your patch?
I would love to see Steele Creek given a more urban-sensitive design and made more accessible to kids so they can get out and explore nature. Improvements, such as lower ammonia and phosphate levels in the creek (mainly from industrial run-off), would also be
high on my wishlist. The Valley Lake development looks after waterways more sensitively, but it was here I ran into a boy out with his dad. The boy couldn’t identify the sound he could hear – it was frogs. That’s sad. And I’m not impressed with the slapped-up high-rise development in Keilor Road towards the Mount Alexander Road end. It seems no thought has been given to sustainability. Where’s the solar power, the rooftop gardens, the care? Can you share an anecdote about time spent in your neighbourhood?
A New Zealand couple came into LaManna and mentioned they came from Dunedin. I told them my cousin owned a shop there and they said their whole family knew that shop.

MOONEE Valley City Council will use a recent $10,000 grant from the Department of Justice to hand out free graffiti-removal kits. The council bought 320 of the kits, which will be given to residents and businesses that have been victims of graffiti attacks. The council received 447 reports of graffiti in Moonee Valley last year. Ascot Vale resident Lyn Hall said graffiti in her area had escalated and a graffiti kit she got from the council was being shared among a number of residents. ‘‘It’s getting worse,” she said. “I’m dreading the day it happens to our house; it’s a target waiting to happen. ‘‘It’s horrible when new residents pay $800,000 for a house then have to put up with graffiti.’’ Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said people could also ask the council to remove graffiti. “While the kits are designed for people to remove graffiti themselves, council responds to requests for graffiti removal on private property
MOONEE Valley Council is calling for community feedback on its draft city sustainability policy, which sets out environmental policies to accommodate changes in technology, lifestyles and climate. Mayor Narelle Sharpe said the city had achieved great environmental results but was now asking the community if it could take the next step. “The draft city sustainability policy is a new generation of environment planning for Moonee Valley,” she said. “Rather than considering energy, waste and water separately, it takes the next step by bringing these elements together and incorporating sustainability into everything we do. “For example, we can continue to plan for improved use of our valuable space to enable our streets to support
people as well as transport. A quiet laneway may have cars on it for less than 20 minutes in a day but, designed well, that laneway could also be a safe and fun place for children to play for the rest of the day.’’ Environmental Sustainability portfolio-holder Cr Shirley Cornish said city sustainability meant planning for a city which could be enjoyed now and for years to come.
Residents kitted out to combat graffiti

NEWS INBRIEF Twentyman calls for youth work trial Melbourne youth worker Les Twentyman says there is a code amongst many of Melbourne’s youth to not go to the police. Crime in the region increased 3.8 per cent last year, but the figure is not a true reflection of the rate of crime being committed. Mr Twentyman said many crimes went unreported in a culture of not being seen as a dobber. He’s calling on the state government to trial a program that would provide children with access to youth workers at school.

YOUnG guns A Twenty years after their unexpected premiership, members of the great Essendon AFL team tell ROBERT FEDELE how they bonded – and later celebrated a flag.
s is custom with grand final victories, celebrations for the triumphant tend to tumble well into the night like a wayward torpedo. In 1993, the lads from Essendon, never ones to mess with convention, made a beeline to the now-extinct, still infamous Tunnel nightclub in the city, drowning themselves in alcohol-fuelled delirium after their win in days when the media spotlight shone as barely a flicker. Premiership hero Gavin Wanganeen, loose and full of steam, remembers being dragged on stage for a sing-along with the cover band, channelling Queen’s Freddy Mercury to belt out a rendition of We are the champions for his swaying teammates below. Ricky Olarenshaw’s eyes widen at the memory. ‘‘The Tunnel was our haunt,’’ he says. “That was one thing we did back then. We tended to go out every weekend and have a beer – that’s probably what made us a strong group.’’ The merriment continued for days on end. “It just felt like that week we had a key to the city everywhere we went,’’ Olarenshaw recalls. “I even got a lift in a divvy van from one nightclub to the other.’’ Elation flowed from capturing the AFL’s holiest grail against Carlton in front of 96,862 fans on that last Saturday in September. The 44-point win garnered the club’s 15th premiership. Twenty years on, the legend that surrounds the success continues, the feat of a team tagged the “Baby Bombers’’ due to a cluster of teenagers such as Mark Mercuri, Dustin Fletcher, and James Hird, still admired today. Wanganeen was taken in the first round of the 1989 national draft at pick 12 at just 16 years old, venturing from Adelaide to play in the big smoke. He made his debut in 1991, the same year James Hird arrived. “We rocked up on the same day at pre-season training. It was his first year at the club,’’ says Wanganeen. “It was quite daunting [for me] leaving a little town like Adelaide. At the same time I was very excited. I knew I was going to a great club with plenty of support, heaps of members, and a lot of hype around the place.’’ Several promising juniors would find their way into the club via the Essendon under-19s during a time when players were snapped up by virtue of where they called home. In a move that proved advantageous for Essendon, the zoning recruitment method for AFL clubs was phased out at the start of 1992, and the under-19 competition disbanded.
Essendon 20.13 (133) v Carlton 13.11 (89), MCG, Melbourne, Saturday 25th September 1993 [ 14 ] MOONEE VALLEY WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE June 4, 2013
The club secured names such as Mercuri, Joe Misiti, Olarenshaw, and David Calthorpe. And a wiry kid named Dustin Fletcher added to the bounty when taken under the father-son rule. In many ways, the bond between many of these young players had been cemented in the muddy local ovals of their childhood. Misiti and Calthorpe grew up in East Keilor; Olarenshaw was a drop punt away in Keilor and Mercuri a further kick away in Keilor Park. “We had a really strong bond straight away,’’ Olarenshaw says. “Now clubs probably have to work harder to get that because they come out of the under18s system and they bring ’em from all over whereas we were like a mini wolfpack.’’ Stocky on-baller Calthorpe played his juniors for East Keilor before giving the game away. He returned to play school footy for St Bernard’s before catching the eye of the Bombers. Calthorpe, Mercuri and Misiti came through the system together and were close mates, the trio often carpooling to games. “Mercs and Joey cemented their spots fairly early in that side at the start of ’93,’’ Calthorpe says. “It took me a while to get into the team. It was probably around round 13. “We just had fun,’’ he says of the car rides. ‘‘Joey was a bit reckless behind the wheel. Mercs drove like an old man and was always panicking on the brakes too early. It was a fun time. We relaxed each other by just talking crap and going and playing footy.’’ An unforeseen yet important piece of the puzzle was the return of club legend Tim Watson to the fold. Watson retired in 1991 due to injuries and went off to pursue a media career. But a year or so later, the bug bit again and he began training with St Kilda, which had shown interest in picking him up in the 1993 pre-season draft. Another stroke of luck saw Essendon snag Watson with their pick before the Saints. His first impressions of the team’s teens? “They had so much potential, but I don’t think anyone at Essendon embarked upon the season thinking they would be a premiership side,’’ Watson says. “They ended up being superstars of the competition, but they were just young kids with a lot of potential at that stage.’’ Eventual Norm Smith medallist Michael Long is quick to point out that perhaps too much is made of the “Baby Bombers’’ moniker given that 11 of the premiership team had played in the 1990 lost grand final against Collingwood. “Not a lot of people remember that,’’ Long says. ‘‘I just think some teams can mix really well and click. The young players can inspire the old guys.’’ History shows Essendon hurtled out of the blocks on that sun-kissed day made for footy, kicking 5.8 (38) to 1.2 (8) in the first quarter. By half-time the margin had blown to 37 and was never pegged back.
Of the game, Watson remembers Michael Long’s famous goal in the first quarter, the one Stephen Silvagni till this day claims he touched. He remembers Dean Wallis mowing down Mil Hanna. And Calthorpe’s goal in the third quarter when Carlton had the slightest of sniffs. Calthorpe remembers the goal Watson speaks of, the one they desperately needed to stem the tide, but also one moments later that Misiti snagged from the boundary on the stroke of three-quarter-time. “We have a bit of banter about that sometimes – which goal was more important,’’ Calthorpe jokes. “Later in the game I remember thinking ‘we’ve got it won’ and Darren Bewick reminded me that it wasn’t over yet. But I think we both knew it was.’’ Calthorpe coaches Diamond Creek in the Northern Football League and has business interests including air freighting racehorses and mobile altitude chambers for athletes. Regardless of what people thought of his style of play, he says nobody can take the medal away from him. “It’s something you’re always gonna have, to be known as a premiership player. I’ve had my critics over the years, but you don’t just get handed a premiership.’’
Wanganeen, then 20, had a week earlier snared another hallowed prize – the Brownlow Medal, the first indigenous player to do so. He recounts a frenetic build-up to the game then running out on to the ground with goose bumps tingling up his spine. “You wish you could get that feeling again. You can almost feel it talking about it,’’ he says. The champion back pocket did a job on Brent Heaver that day but managed to sneak forward and kick the final goal. It’s still a powerful memory. “Longy was running down and I ran down. I was sniffing for a goal. Longy saw his mate there and I knew he’d kick it to me and he did. I managed to kick that last goal. It felt unbelievable.’’ Wanganeen says he felt a buzz at seeing the joy on the faces of older players like Paul Salmon, Mark ‘‘Bomber’’ Thompson and Watson, and what it meant to them. Now an Adelaide resident again, Wanganeen recently opened a gym in Essendon and plans to visit the club now and then. Watson counts the 1993 season as one of the most enjoyable in his decorated career. “They had so much enthusiasm and were still wide-eyed about the game,’’ he says of the so-called babies. The triple premiership player says his first one, back in 1984, will always be his greatest. “Because there’s the unknown. How you’re gonna feel. And the drive to be a premiership player. In 1993 I had more appreciation for what it took.’’ On the day Olarenshaw had a stellar first
quarter, racking up more than a dozen touches. The speedy wingman has never sat down and watched the tape from siren to siren. “At some point when my grandkids are coming through I’ll probably do that,’’ he says. “The game was a blur. I remember Sheeds [coach Kevin Sheedy] warning us before the finals that it will go like a click of your fingers. And that’s what it did. It was such an exciting time. I look back on my life now at 40. That month was the highlight. No doubt.’’ Olarenshaw dabbled in media but has turned his attention to the Essentially Group, a global sports marketing agency of which he’s chief executive. He started playing footy in the Keilor under-9s as a seven-year-old and says that without a premiership medallion to his name there would definitely be a hole. But he knows one player who has taken all the memorabilia down off his wall because he doesn’t want his football career to define him. Olarenshaw confesses to missing playing footy with his mates on the big stage. He splits his time between Melbourne and Torquay where he found a new passion, surfing, as a way of dealing with the comedown. “You’re chasing the dragon, really. It’s such a massive high and a massive thrill that I find it hard to replicate. Every footballer must go through it. I’ve dealt with it by surfing and devotion to my business. But how I’m ever going to get that high again I’ve got no idea.’’ In the aftermath of football, Long turned his attention to championing indigenous rights and becoming a role model through such initiatives as The Long Walk. He says he’d be nothing without the game. “Football elevated me and hopefully I’ve given back to the game as much as it’s given to me.’’ ‘‘Time’s gone pretty quickly,’’ Long says when asked about the two decades that have passed. ‘‘Your career goes pretty quickly as well.’’ But everyone still talks about his goal, the one where he bounced his way along the MCG like a slalom skier. He says it’s nice to at least “be remembered for some moment in football’’. Watson is a football commentator with Channel 7, where he has found a valued niche. He doesn’t visit the club too much these days. “Most past players don’t. It’s a chapter in your life and you respect that. The inner sanctum is for those that are playing now.’’ Late last month, the 1993 premiership team caught up for a reunion to reminisce and recollect. The memories are always up for grabs; it depends on whose version you choose to believe. “It’s a reason for people to get back together again,’’ says Watson of the reunions. “It’s a powerful thing. It unites football clubs. That’s why successful clubs become more successful. They have these things to dwell on.’’

Wogs at centre stage oonee Valley residents are in for a treat with a new production on a national tour making two appearances at the Clocktower. The producers who created the Il Dago and Comicus Erectus tours are now delivering the next politically incorrect stage show: The Good the Bad and the Ethnic. The show features all the usual suspects including Joe Avati (pictured), George Kapiniaris, Turkish-Australian comedy sensation Tahir, better known to most as Habib of Fat Pizza fame, and the talented Rob Shehadie, better known as Rocky from Fat Pizza and Housos. Avati told the Weekly the show was a change in direction from past shows. ‘‘Every year we try and better what we are doing and this time we’ve really stepped up four or five notches. ‘‘We all talk about being wogs, but it’s presented in a different way.’’ Avati says his crew has now embraced technology and uses a lot of multi-media during the show rather than relying only on stage gags.

And the mystery object is… Telling the time has become more complicated than it needs to be, writes Rod Easdown
reserve and I know for a fact that they do not discharge in turn but all support each other. Whatever that may mean. The watch also has a tourbillon, which is something about countering the effects of gravity on the most delicate components of a hand-wound watch. There are 637 in this one. My view: There are easier ways to tell the time. Take, for example, the watch by Bavarian Crono that replicates the speedometer of the classic 1963 Mercedes-Benz 230SL, one of a number of watches by the German maker replicating the instruments of classic cars. It’s $US350. Elizabeth Franz runs the little company making them and I suggested to her that folk who travel across time zones a lot, and thus wear two watches, might appreciate a matching watch based on the tachometer of the same car – speedo on the left wrist, tacho on the right. She emailed a four-word response: “I’m thinking about it.”

That leaves the numbers on the left. Ah. Now Hublot claims to have set a record with this watch by achieving a 50-day power reserve. That is, after you have wound it (yep, you wind it) it will keep going for 50 days before you have to wind it again. (My $80 Swatch goes for three or four years between battery changes and a new battery costs $10.) So those numbers on the left indicate how many days you have left before, ahem, you take the special winding tools out of the schedoni leather and carbon-fibre presentation case, expose the winding crown (it’s under the hinged titanium and carbon-fibre triangle at the top of the watch) and wind. The time-setting mechanism is under another of these little secret panels on the watch’s underside. You’re wondering about the centre barrel thingy with the little drive sprockets at each side? Me too. But as far as I can tell, they’re something to do with the 50-day power
t this point you’re wondering what exactly it is in the accompanying picture. Scary as it may be, it’s possibly the future of watches. And it’s very, very expensive. So expensive that the 234-megabyte media kit describing it doesn’t mention the price anywhere, but says that just 50 are being made. Always a reliable indicator of a price high enough to affect the balance of trade. It’s made by Swiss watchmaker Hublot and it is called the MP05 La Ferrari. I guess it’s meant to reflect the sort of cutting edge tech of the car. My experience of Ferrari tech is that the only people who understand it are the types who go all hot when evening conversation turns to prime numbers. And so it is with this watch. Nevertheless, there were parts of the media kit I understood. The numbers at the top right show the time; the top number is the hour and the bottom, the minute. The seconds are displayed on the dial right down the bottom centre immediately under the brand name.

We start with our yum cha favourites: steamed prawn dumplings ($5.80) and sweet and meaty chive dumplings ($5.80), which are laced with vibrant green of the herb and chopped seafood. The baked and fried section includes classics like prawn toasts ($4.80) and deep fried calamari ($6.80) – a jumble of tentacles, evenly crumbed and textured. A small bowl of prawn Sui Gaw soup ($4) has three prawn dumplings in a clear broth, softened lettuce and a hint of sesame oil to finish. A serving of steamed rice roll with barbecue pork ($4.80) has layers of wide rice noodles and shredded pork meat that’s at once subtly sweet and savoury. A good dollop of soy sauce adds saltiness. All the dishes are pleasing and the only cause for frustration is that the room needs a bit of loving. (This may be on the way, though, as the owners are extending the space into the shop next door.) For the price, Yummie is certainly worth a try.
eeking out yum cha on a Sunday is almost as Australian as a meat pie at the footy and is often a comforting and satisfying endeavour. So, as we decided where to go on a recent weekend, it was impossible to go past a place called Yummie, if for nothing else to find out whether it was or not. On Barkly Street in Footscray, Yummie is a large dining room with photographs of various dishes above the front counter and large Chinese prints decorating the wall. First impressions have us thinking Yummie could do with some TLC. There’s a plastic basket on each table containing bottles of soy sauce, chilli and vinegar as well as the menus – they definitely need to be cleaned after each service. That aside, the staff are casual but very friendly and immediately deliver a pot of tea as we take our seats. The menu is separated into steamed and

The best pho by far Phuc Nguyen shows off the restaurant’s rice paper rolls and broken rice with pork chops and eggs, while Hong Huynh has the rice noodle soup with chicken breast.
here’s a new kid on the Puckle Street block, a restaurant that’s keen to give locals a fresh foodie experience: Pho Viet. Melburnians have embraced pho (pronounced ‘fah’) as one of the healthiest soups brimming with flavour- and restaurant owner, Hong Huynh, now wants to introduce Moonee Ponds people to the wonders of this traditional Vietnamese rice noodle soup. “Our pho is the hero of our menu thanks to special techniques and ingredients handed down from our ancestors,” says Hong Huynh. “It’s made from beef bones that have been simmered for about 12 hours to develop its intense, warm flavour unique to Pho Viet. During this process, all fat in the broth is filtered by a net to ensure a clean, healthy soup.” The pho comes with sliced beef or chicken breast, served with a squeeze of lemon, some basil leaves, a small handful of bean shoots, hoi-sin and chilli sauces and a hint (or more) of fresh chilli. One satisfied Facebook user said of the pho: “Meat was super tender and the broth was very tasty of its own accord.”

Entrée choices are many and diverse, with the likes of prawn, chicken and vegie spring rolls, and rice paper rolls with chicken, pork or prawns always big hits. Another star is the broken rice dish with pork or chicken. This is rice that’s been broken into half grains, topped with a honey and fish sauce, lemongrass-marinated pork chop and finished with egg and shredded pork. Pho Viet also serves up a selection of beverages designed to hit the spot. Try a freshly squeezed fruit juice or a homemade smoothie. With traditional paintings on the walls serving as a reminder of Vietnamese origins, the fully licensed restaurant is well equipped to deliver a memorable experience – whether as a sit-down meal with family and friends or as a quick takeaway.

Bank with its finger on the pulse Placing a rapid ‘stop’ order on a stolen credit card is but one example of a bank that cares for its customers, writes Carole Levy hen Rachael Brisbane had her wallet stolen while travelling in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she had a chance to test the level of customer service at the Flemington Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank. “I was blown away,” says Ms Brisbane. “I emailed the manager, Grant Hopkinson, to alert him to stop payments. Within 10 minutes, Grant contacted me to advise he’d put a stop on my card. I was with friends from the US at the time and they couldn’t get over the speed and care taken; it was quite foreign to their experience. ‘‘This is ‘Grant’s bank’, I explained to them – not a big, impersonal bank at all.” Ms Brisbane shared her story at the bank’s recent cocktail party celebrating 10 years of operation, and her’s was not the only glowing report. Customers Frances and Mary, who also attended the event, were keen to point out the bank’s winning ways. “This bank demonstrates inclusiveness,’’ they said. ‘‘Look around and see who’s been invited – not just the big wigs but people from all walks of life, ordinary customers like us.” Michael Felle, one of the branch’s first shareholders, said on the night that he still remembers his first dividend. “It was a cheque for $27. Small beginnings, but I always had faith the branch would grow. A night like this is a culmination of hard work and commitment to genuine community support.” Mr Hopkinson is all about giving back to his community from bank profits, and his face has become a well-known one around the traps. Melbourne MP Adam Bandt confirmed Mr Hopkinson’s community involvement. “Grant’s at just about every community event I’m at. He has my full support for the grassroots sponsorships and other help the bank gives to organisations in our neighbourhood.” It was Mr Bandt’s party, the Australian Greens, that introduced account-switching

institution. Our account-switching team liaises with customers’ direct credit and debit providers to advise them of new Bendigo Bank account details. It’s a speedy, streamlined process so people wanting to sign up with our bank should have no qualms.”

STRATHMORE \ 10/2 NORTH AVENUE
t was once a corner shop and dwelling, but this charming Edwardian is now a sparkling five-bedroom house. Built about 1910, it presents a sombre face to Kent Street. A five-sided bay window glitters with red and green leadlights beneath a half-timbered gable. From Wigton Street the house looks sharply contemporary, its new two-storey rear wing offering open-plan living and, upstairs, three bedrooms. A few steps east, and still handsome in its flat roof tufted by samovar-shaped ornaments, is the old shop, once the local butchery, and a landmark with links to the first landowners in Moonee Valley. Its history begins with Captain William Buckley, who in 1851 settled on 30 hectares north of what is now Kent Street. He sold the land in 1865 to brewer Robert McCracken, co-founder of the Melbourne-Essendon railway, who renamed it Ailsa. In 1905 Robert’s son, Alexander, subdivided, and the Ailsa Estate was auctioned in lots in 1907. According to the 1917 Sands & McDougall postal directory, the shop was occupied by the butchers R.J.Gilbertson and Co. R.J. was the redoubtable Robert James Gilbertson, who began his meat-packing empire at 19, expanded it to 13 shops and twice served as mayor of Essendon. Noted in the Annals of Essendon for his “sterling Christian character, his integrity and his progressive activities in civic affairs”, the jovial R.J. scrapped mayoral balls in favour of children’s picnics. The current owner bought shop and house as a single property and has completed a meticulous renovation. Ambitious in its scope, it starts with the original rooms whose walls soar beyond 3.5 metres to ceilings festooned with huge roses and lantern chandeliers. Painted stark white with new dark-grey carpet, these rooms – two bedrooms with sash windows, study, home office and a formal living room with two small adjoining rooms previously used as the main bedroom suite – have a freshness that brings the colourful leadlights into sharp relief. Tiled open fireplaces with timber mantels nestle in the bedroom corners. A new hardwood floor directs the eyes up the hall to the contemporary wing. Wide, white and flooded by northerly light, the new wing is dominated by its glossy timber floor and glass wall, which frames a garden view bristling with agaves. An open-plan living area includes a meals corner, defined by partial walls. A superb 900-millimetre Baumatic stove is the star of the kitchen, which has sleek white cabinetry, stone benches and plentiful cupboards. Up the timber-slab stairs, the new bedroom zone continues the neutral theme of white walls and grey carpet. There’s a landing large enough to accommodate a small library. Three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes are off the landing. The main bathroom is fully tiled in smoky grey with a shower above the bath and Roca tiles. From the main bedroom’s glass-fronted balcony, the spectacular panorama takes in trees in their autumn foliage, chimney pots and sky. Oh, Mr Gilbertson … if only you could be here to chuck your premium-grade steaks on the barbie! \ ALISON BARCLAY email@example.com

The view is the first thing you notice upon walking into this well-kept second-storey apartment, one of 17 in the three-storey building. It’s an attention-grabber: the city skyline rising out of the horizon, apparently floating above a sea of treetops and the terracotta-colour of inner suburban roofs. The vista is seen from nearly every room, and is certainly a highlight of the communal terrace on the building’s rooftop. The views are only half the story: back inside, there is plenty to appreciate. A neat kitchen is open to the combined living and meals space. It’s a simple area, made a little more special by a balcony. The bedrooms flank the living area, both with built-in wardrobes and access to said balcony running the length of the apartment. There is a shared bathroom and also a separate laundry. Extra cupboard space, positioned at various points, is smart planning considering the floor area. A two-minute walk from Woodland Street shops and the train station, and a five-minute drive to join Citylink, this is one convenient location for city commuters. \ SARINA LEWIS

The attic takes in views of the city skyline, Dockland Wheel and nearby Maribyrnong River, and with living spaces including a lounge, open-plan hub, huge rumpus room and a flexible-use attic, there should be no lack of personal space for a large family. Three peaked rooflines define the rendered façade and the wide foyer opens to two bedrooms, a study and a lounge with a fireplace. The main bedroom has an en suite and a glass door to a side terrace. Central to ground level, a vestibule introduces a powder room and laundry. Highly polished floorboards co-ordinate with granite surfaces and timber cabinetry in the open-plan kitchen, meals and family area, which has two sets of french doors to the side terrace and another two to the rear deck. Backyard squares are used efficiently, with the deck extending to a glass fenced, kidney-shaped pool. The first floor presents more space with a balcony, three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom with spa bath and a rumpus room of similar proportions to the open-plan area below. \ KAY KEIGHERY

This quiet Close is in a superb location. Within the Strathmore Secondary College zone, nearby are a train station, several parks and shopping strips and Citylink access. The 1970s brick-veneer house has served as a happy home for its vendors for 38 years and whether its new owners want to take on a cosmetic makeover or a complete overhaul, it has plenty to recommend it. The ’70s are alive and well here with arched thoroughfares, brown tiling and laminate and a bar with mirror wall tiles. A side entry via a carport leads to the centre of the house. At the front of the house, four bedrooms (three with built-in wardrobes) are joined by a main bathroom and a laundry. The main bedroom also has an en suite. At the rear, a formal lounge or dining room has a servery window through to the galley-style kitchen. A living and meals area has sliding doors out to a decked area with a spa and vine-covered pergola. Plenty of scope for a green thumb. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Nestled in a flower-filled garden near Clarinda Park is a quartet of single-storey villa units proving popular with downsizers and couples. Number four is at the north-facing rear and, showing the good sense of its early 1980s vintage, delivers space where it matters – in two flexible living and dining areas that bask in sunshine and open to a vine-laden brick courtyard. Late-modern details abound; there’s a Spanish-style front door, full-length timber-framed windows and exposed-brick walls cutting a dash in the main bedroom and formal living area. Two double bedrooms, the main with a walk-in wardrobe, offer cool respite on the south side. The recently updated kitchen looks smart in matt white laminate cabinetry with a Maxfaro electric cooktop, Euroart wall oven, walk-in pantry, and the laundry. A central bathroom in good original condition and a double garage entered through the right-of-way at the rear complete the polished package. Essendon and Moonee Ponds stations are a 10-minute walk. \ ALISON BARCLAY
Self-sufficiency for families was a beautiful ideal of 1950s town planners, and here’s a well-maintained souvenir of the era – a comfortable three-bedroom house in 650 square metres of sunbathed, level land. Those who want a backyard farmlet should explore this north-facing rear garden, where vegetable beds and a chook run could easily be tucked in without sacrificing the lawn and roses. The single-storey brick house comes with details such as cornices and glass double doors enhancing the wide living room and its adjoining dining room, showcasing the L–shape that was the latest in modern design. Three double bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, open off the hall. They are served by a cream-tiled bathroom with bath and shower. Out the back, the pristine spa and its timber deck have a holiday-at-home appeal, and there’s potential to open the 1980s kitchen and sunroom to the garden. Buckley Park is a few doors away, which, despite its proximity to Keilor Road and Niddrie shopping centre, has a country-town air and kids on bikes. \ ALISON BARCLAY

A single-level villa secure in a cluster of four similarly designed houses offers the kind of no-fuss living investors or first home buyers crave. There is everything you could need – think single lock-up garage, split-system air-conditioning and an easy-to-maintain paved courtyard – with no superfluous additions. Even the floor plan maintains that easy feel. A casual living space is the largest area of the house. Positioned just off the entry, it flows through to the open-plan kitchen and meals space. There’s a nice ambience here, the rooms overlooking well-kept plants in the backyard. Both the main and the second bedroom have built-in wardrobes. They share a bathroom given a breezy feel courtesy of a little aqua tiling laid as contrast to the cream bath and free-standing sink. A separate laundry feels like a bonus in a villa of this size, so, too, the separate toilet. Its position to the rear of the villas minimises traffic noise. Extras include gas heating in the living room and its proximity to Maribyrnong Road trams, Union Road cafés and river parks. \ SARINA LEWIS

Saints break Tulla’s winning streak BY TEO PELLIZZERI NORTHERN Saints broke Tullamarine’s winning streak on Saturday with a four point win in Essendon District Football League division 1. The last unbeaten team prior to the weekend, Tullamarine still holds top spot by half a game from the chasing pack after the 20.7 (127) to 21.5 (131) defeat at Leo Dineen Reserve. Tullamarine (6-1-1) heads the table from Taylors Lakes (6-2), Northern Saints (6-2) and Glenroy (5-1-2) who missed the chance to move to the top of the ladder after losing to West Coburg.
Northern Saints’ Ali Abou-Eid kicked eight goals to spearhead his team’s win, while Bilal Allouch, Zak Saad and Fort Caruso were other key players. Tullamarine shared the goalkicking with four each to Stephen Neilsen and Dale Foote, while Adam Sayers and Craig Steele were best players. At Shore Reserve, West Coburg signalled its potential to climb the table when it won 14.14 (98) to Glenroy 11.7 (73). The back-to-back runner-up won for just the second time this season, with Ruairi Cleary kicking five goals and Debri Kutrolli, Dane Lucas and
Jesse Martini its better players. Ethan Hope, Joseph Sayers and Travis Dulic were Glenroy’s bestt. At Lionheart Reserve, Taylors Lakes left Craigieburn outright last on the ladder with a 114-point thrashing, 23.21 (159) to 6.9 (45). Mark Xuereb kicked seven goals for Taylors Lakes. Craigieburn (1-7) is now a game behind Westmeadows and West Coburg and because of the heavy defeat now has the worst percentage in the league. In the division’s other match, Hadfield 16.11 (107) defeated Westmeadows 10.8 (68). In division 2, Moonee Valley
Westgate gives Heights a scare
remains unbeaten after struggling to shake off Jacana. The Valley led by just 12 points at the last change but did not fall vulnerable to an upset, kicking away to win 11.13 (79) to 8.6 (54) thanks to three goals from Michael Tanner and a best-on-ground performance from two-goal James Saragias. At Lakeside Oval, East Keilor knocked Roxburgh Park out of the top four with a 12.13 (85) to 4.10 (34) win. Dion Hill kicked five goals for the Cougars. Hillside won comfortably against Coburg Districts, 13.23 (101) to 2.3 (15), while Keilor Park 26.18 (174) beat East Sunbury 1.6 (12).
A WILD afternoon of goals and cards has failed to end Avondale Heights’ unbeaten start to the season after a 4-4 draw with Westgate in FFV state league 2 north-west on Saturday. Westgate finished the match with nine men after two red cards at Doyle Reserve. Avondale Heights held second place in the league with 16 points, now three behind ladder leader Moreland City (19) and one ahead of third-placed Keilor Park (15 points). The tone was set straight from kick-off as Burakhan Koca opened the scoring for Avondale, only for Westgate to equalise soon after. Bosin Gorcevski made it 2-1 for Heights but again Westgate had the answers, scoring twice to lead 3-2 at half-time. A red card early in the second half for Westgate opened the door for Avondale to equalise via Andrew Le Page, 3-3. Le Page scored again soon after to make it 4-3, only for Westgate to equalise 4-4. The visitors held on in spite of being reduced to nine men with another red card late in the match. In state 4 west, Essendon United defeated FC Strathmore 3-1 at Strathnaver Reserve. Essendon Royals drew 0-0 against Williamstown. In state 5 west Melbourne Tornado claimed a 3-1 win against Balmoral.
Classy Cats leave the Bombers stranded BY TEO PELLIZZERI
Top four still within reach
GEELONG’S last surge proved too much for Essendon to handle as the VFL reigning premier won by 37 points at Windy Hill on Saturday. The Bombers closed to within 19 points in the final quarter before the Cats finished stronger in the 18.17 (125) to 13.10 (88) result. The loss leaves Essendon in 10th on the VFL ladder with two wins and six losses. It’s in danger of being as many as three wins adrift of eighth spot depending on results in games played after the Weekly went to print. Corey Dell’Olio was Essendon’s best forward and continued his strong run of form with four majors. Travis Colyer, Joe Daniher and Matthew Bate booted two each. Geelong appeared to have already broken the Bombers’ resistance during the third quarter as the gap grew beyond seven goals. But a rally with goals to Bate, Dell’Olio and Hal Hunter after the three-quarter-time siren gave the Bombers hope. Josh Walker kicked the first goal of the last quarter for Geelong, but Dell’Olio hit back to keep the gap at 19 points. However, a quick back-to-back double from Robert Condy and Billie Smedts midway through the quarter ended any slim hopes of an Essendon comeback. Alwyn Davey returned from injury to play three quarters for Essendon, while Michael Sikora left the game on cruches injured. Ben Deuscher was Essendon’s best while Tayte Pears had a strong game on half back and others
Bomber best: Tayte Pears rides a tackle from Geelong’s Jordan Murdoch at Windy Hill on Saturday
named best were Nick O’Brien, Kyle Hardingham, Dylan Van Unen and Dell’Olio. Standout VFL performer Will Hams was a late call-up for his AFL
debut on Saturday afternoon as he came in as a late change for Ben Howlett. Starting as the sub, Hams collected one kick and four handballs in
Essendon’s 44-point defeat to Sydney at the SCG. Essendon’s VFL team plays Sandringham at Windy Hill from 1pm this Saturday.
ST Bernards has returned to the chasing pack for VAFA Premier finals places after a 10-point win against De La Salle on Saturday. The 9.9 (63) to 6.17 (53) win at the Snake Pit keeps St Bernards (3-5) a win above the relegation zone and within two games of the top four. De La Salle (5-3) missed the chance to keep pace with the ladder leaders after leading by nine at half-time only to be overtaken by the Snowdogs. Tom Gleeson booted three goals for St Bernards and Alexander Singleton two, while Jacob Bevanda, Nick Cooke and Michael Sullivan were other better players. In Premier C, PEGS is still trying to break its losing streak after a 33-point loss to Mazenod. The Bombers are now four wins and four losses in fifth on the ladder, one game off top four. PEGS led by three points at halftime but kicked just one goal in the second half, going down 11.17 (83) to 7.8 (50).

Cannons’ dominance stifles Stingrays BY TEO PELLIZZERI A STRING of tactical moves helped Calder Cannons to a comfortable 42-point win against Dandenong Stingrays in the TAC Cup at Highgate Reserve on Saturday. For the second time this season the Cannons held their opposition goalless to half-time on the way to winning 14.5 (89) to 6.11 (47). Dandenong (5-3) slipped to fourth with the loss while Calder (4-4) consolidated its top eight standing by moving into sixth position. After the start was delayed for 30 minutes for ground maintenance, it was Calder that exploded out of the blocks with five unanswered goals. The Stingrays did enjoy momentum
at times in the remaining three quarters, but Calder’s intelligence close to goal always kept the scoreboard a one-sided affair. The Stingrays lifted after a quartertime spray from coach Graeme Yeats, who named names as he pointed out instances of poor concentration and unaccountable defence. But resisting territorial dominance from the Stingrays was a defining moment in the Cannons’ win. Calder walked to the half-time break after giving up only five points, in spite of playing much of the second term in its back half. The third term was five goals to three Calder’s way, with Dandenong struggling to clear defensive 50 metres.
Vic Metro defender Jake Lever posted himself at the top of the 50 metre arc and was noticeable trapping the ball in the Cannons forward line, either intercept marking or making a contest on a number of attempted clearing kicks. And with the ball trapped in the forward line, Calder profited. Matthew Merlo and Josh Cauchi both kicked goals in perfect set pieces from boundary throw-ins. The final quarter was a more open affair, with Dandenong finding its run and a number of players growing in confidence. It was a tease for what the match could have been if the Stingrays had been on their game from the opening bounce. Zak Jones, Will Hartung and Jack Lonie all finished strongly.
Hartung in particular was one of the Stingrays’ best against the flow through the game, often backing himself to run and carry the ball. But this was Calder’s day, with a number of winners around the ground. Merlo was again prolific in the centre, as was Anthony Prestia. Jake Owen joined the defensive unit for large sections of the game, the Vic Metro onballer was a success behind the play with a number of important marks. Cauchi’s two goals showed superb small-forward instinct, while Aaron Christensen led all scorers with three majors as he played much of the game in the forward line. The game’s opening goal set the
tone, with Romsey’s David Quillerat marking and goaling to much celebration from his teammates. The volleyball convert caught the eye of talent scouts in the Ridell league and, after training with the Cannons for a handful of weeks, was added to the playing list in time for Saturday’s game. Calder’s next match is away to Bendigo Pioneers at Queen Elizabeth Oval on Saturday, June 15. Vic Metro will play its second game of the under-18 national championships against NSW-ACT Rams this Sunday at Princes Park in Carlton.

hammered it into them prior to the game, there was some really good hand-to-foot speed from our guys. “It was a real focus to get it forward by foot rather than by hand, and we had to get our forwards to adjust after [Dandenong] had 10 defensive marks in the second quarter. “Jake Lever has a natural instinct for the football and Jake Owen, when we put him back, had seven intercept marks in the last quarter. We’re lucky
CALDER’S tall stocks stood up on a “wet weather footy” day in a performance that pleased Cannons coach Andrew Jago. The addition of David Quillerat to regular rucks Mark Kovacevic and James Barnes helped Calder control the midfield battle against Dandenong Stingrays. The team’s Vic Metro players also
continued to press their case for ongoing selection in this year’s under18 national championships. “Our guys did respond to the challenge, Dandenong had momentum twice in the game and we managed to wrestle it back,” Jago said. “Domination of the centre was a little bit of luck on our behalf after Dandenong’s best ruckman got injured during the week.
[ 78 ] MOONEE VALLEY WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE June 4, 2013
“David Quillerat was the tall that jumped really well to give us first use out of the middle which spurred Mark [Kovacevic] and [James] Barnes on and our mids got first hands on the ball as well.” Calder’s goals from forward-line stoppages was one noticeable area of dominance through the game. “We adopted a wet weather philosophy; as soon as you get hands on the ball get it going our way. We
we have natural ball readers, and they have permission to instruct the players around them.” Jago said the 30-minute delay for ground maintenance caused by overnight rain had been important in getting a fast start. “We brought our guys in here and ‘switched them off’, did an exercise about concentration about whether or not we let it affect the players or adjust to hit the ground better than our opponents.”

Courtney Johns was best afield with four goals while Daniel Mangan also booted four for the Two Blues. Nick Rudewych and Luke Howard were Oak Park’s best. Avondale Heights 18.15 (123) d Airport West 11.12 (78) The Heights exploded away in the final quarter to win comfortably in what was previously a neck-and-neck struggle. Airport West had the better of the opening term to lead by 16 points and held a three-point advantage at the long break. But the Heights edged ahead by two at the last change before kicking seven unanswered goals in the final term. Patrick Rose booted eight majors for the Heights while Stephen Tiller, Matt Cravino and Jake Ralston were other outstanding players.

The momentum turned into a scoring avalanche after half-time, with the Blues piling on six unanswered goals in the final term. Jarrod Garth was best afield with six goals, while Micka James (four) and Ricky Marcy (three) also hit the scoreboard. Douttas best was Hamish Dahl, while

Greenvale widens divide at top of the ladder BY TEO PELLIZZERI A CLEAR gap is opening between the best and the rest in Essendon District Football League premier division after Greenvale’s 73-point hiding of Strathmore on Saturday. The Mores were humbled at home as Greenvale powered to a 19.12 (126) to 7.11 (53) victory at Lebanon Reserve. Strathmore (5-3) was bumped to fourth in the division and lost 10 percentage points in the one-sided
loss. Greenvale (7-1) remains in pursuit of unbeaten ladder leader Aberfeldie (8-0) Strathmore fell to a 26-point deficit at half-time on Saturday and failed to bridge the gap in spite of controlling long segments of the third quarter. The final term was one-way traffic as Greenvale booted 6.6 to a solitary point. By the half-way point of the last quarter it looked like the Jets may be easing up on the intensity, only to then run out the game and bump up the winning margin.
Greenvale’s forward line continues to evolve after the loss of Jacob Thompson for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament, as four multiple goal-kickers stood up. Adam McPhee was the stand-out, booting six goals with a mix of marks and set shots, roving off the pack and contested strength in open play. It was one of McPhee’s goals that ended any chance of a Strathmore comeback, marking and goaling from 50 metres after a long spell of Strathmore control that was not
reflected on the scoreboard. It meant Greenvale won the third quarter even though it was largely under the pump. When the tables turned in the last, the Jets had no issues getting scoreboard reward. Steven Brewer kicked three goals running through the midfield, while Cameron Wight spent long periods forward for two goals and half-forward target Ben Clifton also finished with two. Strathmore missed Jordan Doering in its forward 50 but Adam Winter still returned three goals as the team’s
only multiple goal-kicker. Jae Wilton and Nathan Lyons were two standouts for the Mores. Greenvale named Travis Jorgensen, Chris Kent and Simon Potter as others in its best. Just eight premiership points separate third and eighth, with Avondale Heights (5-3) followed by Strathmore (5-3), Airport West (4-4), Maribyrnong Park (4-4), Keilor (3-5) and Essendon Doutta Stars (3-5). EDFL breaks this weekend and returns on June 15.
