Hurdles in the way of miner

OUR COVER: Former Moorabool mayor Di McAuliffe. Story: 12-13 Picture: Martina Gemmola

BY BEN CAMERON A NEW coalmine in Bacchus Marsh could take up to three years to receive approval, according to the Department of Primary Industries. Speaking at a five-hour information session in Bacchus Marsh last Thursday, DPI’s executive director of earth resources, Chris Brooks, said partners Mantle Mining and Exergen faced a rigorous process if they applied for a mining licence. He said the DPI had heard ‘‘nothing more’’ from the company since exploration work around Bacchus Marsh and Parwan was completed earlier this year. ‘‘It’s a very detailed and rigorous process; there’s plenty of procedures to go through. They will need to get landowner permission, council approval, engage with the community.’’ An Exergen spokesman said a detailed scoping study examining the potential of a mine site was expected to be completed by late September or early October. Mr Brooks said there was still a long way to go. He hoped the information session, at which more than 30 people officially registered, cleared any misinformation clouding the issue. ‘‘I noticed there was a bit of confusion about the difference between an exploration licence and a mining licence,’’ he said. Meanwhile, Moorabool Environmental Group has described its freedom of information request to the DPI as a ‘‘waste of time’’. In July, the Weekly reported that the group had requested information on who the DPI consulted before approving an exploration licence to Mantle Mining. Secretary Deb Porter said the response was lacking in detail. ‘‘I was sent a printout of what’s on their website,’’ she said. ‘‘It was a total waste of time for them to print off the information and send it to me and for us to put in a request. ‘‘We were never consulted [about the exploration licence]. Consultation is about having an opportunity to make a change to the outcome, we didn’t get that opportunity.’’

Putting it out there: Peter Sawyer and Anthony Bruzzese with DPI’s Andrew Radojkovic.

Differential rates set to be blocked council in the damage done to roads,’’ Ms Hartland said. But Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell said new guidelines would guard against inconsistency. ‘‘A significant increase in the use of differential rates by local councils has created a complex web of different rates for similar ratepayers across Victoria.’’ Moorabool mayor Pat Griffin said there was no cause for alarm just yet. Municipal Association of Victoria president Bill McArthur said councils and communities must be adequately consulted when it came to future mining projects.

THERE are fears proposed state government legislation will open the door for mining companies and leave Moorabool Council shortchanged. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland said both sides of Parliament were likely to support the Local Government Legislation Amendment, which could stop shires charging differential rates on council land. Councils can apply differential rates to vacant land to encourage development, with excavation industry rates currently three times more than farm land rates. ‘‘Mining is not always supported by the community and causes higher costs for

Folk ‘not quite who they think they are’ crossed paths with his mother, and even two uncles, many times before. She was living in Elsternwick and he drifted around the Port Melbourne and Prahran areas, so ‘‘we were never really far apart’’. ‘‘I actually did a business deal with a man I didn’t realise was my uncle,’’ David said. ‘‘I also worked for a bloke who was my uncle.’’ The theory that the apple never falls far from the tree was proven true when David met with his mother in a Bendigo pub more than a decade ago. ‘‘I have funny eating habits,’’ David says. ‘‘I remember that day I went to the bar and ordered a mixed grill with no chops. I sat down with my mother and when the waiter brought a plate of mixed grill over we argued over whose order it was. We’d both ordered the same thing.’’ David welcomed the government apology but said he would like to see the past left there. ‘‘They’ll never get to the bottom of it,’’ he said. ‘‘Too many people have passed on who were involved. I don’t think they’ll ever open the files; it’ll ruin too many lives.’’ People directly affected by forced adoption practices are being asked for their views on what the national apology should say through the federal government’s Forced Adoption Apology Reference Group. “It’s important that the people who have been directly affected by forced adoption have the opportunity to have their say about the apology,” Attorney-General Nicola Roxon said. “I can’t even begin to imagine what these mothers, fathers and their now-adult children have endured, but what I can do is provide an opportunity for them to have a say in how the government frames the apology.” Suggestions can be made by emailing forcedadoptionsapology@ag.gov.au

A DARLEY man’s dreams of a family holiday were destroyed when his $40,000 caravan was stolen from his front yard. The 2011-model caravan was taken last Monday between 11am and 12.15pm, while Michael Crampton was visiting his brother a few kilometres away. Mr Crampton (pictured with wife Wendy and children Brad and Jasmin) said the theft had shattered plans to take a trip to Cootamundra.

‘‘OH, my god, I thought you were dead.’’ It’s probably not the first thing most people hear when meeting a long-lost relative for the first time, especially when that relative is their mother. The Weekly reported last week that the state government will be part of a national apology for forced adoptions, where single parents were forced to relinquish their children. A Senate committee inquiry has estimated as many as 250,000 babies were taken between the 1950s and ’70s, mostly from young and single mothers. Bacchus Marsh resident ‘‘David’’ was one of those given away, back in 1955. ‘‘It’s like the stolen generation, in its own way,’’ David said. He met his mother for the first time at the age of 44. ‘‘I’ve heard there were 167,000 babies given away in Victoria in 1955. How many others are out there who don’t realise they’re not quite who they think they are?’’ David said his mother had been drugged after his birth and later was told he’d been stillborn. He only discovered the truth after going through paperwork after the deaths of who he thought had been his natural parents. ‘‘I was a bit lost,’’ he said. ‘‘I sat down and thought about my life. I had different traits, I looked different to my parents. ‘‘Some would have been devastated, but it didn’t really worry me. They were all dead, so what could you do?’’ David put off meeting his birth mother for years, until his partner talked him into writing a letter. When that was ignored, David bravely picked up the phone. ‘‘I told her it was my birthday and asked if that meant anything to her,’’ David said. ‘‘She said, ‘Oh, my god, I thought you were dead’.’’ The truth was David had unknowingly

Ice in vogue, but research frozen BY BEN CAMERON

‘‘It’s a complex problem and needs better support from government. We need to better understand the causal factors for using drugs and the stresses and strains people are under.’’ However, a Bacchus Marsh paramedic said he’d never attended an incident directly related to ice during his three years working in town. ‘‘Basically, we don’t see it [ice],’’ he said. ‘‘The further you go into the city the more you do see it.’’ Alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre Turning Point recently produced a study into drug and alcohol-related ambulance attendances in Melbourne, but it did not cover regional areas. Police last week said up to 80 per cent of all local crime was linked to drug use.

PICTURE: MARTINA GEMMOLA

RESEARCH into drug use in regional Victoria is extremely poor, according to one of the state’s leading authorities on drug and alcohol dependence. Victorian Alcohol and Drug Association executive director Sam Biondo said the lack of information on rural drug use was appalling. His assessment follows a large public meeting held in Bacchus Marsh to discuss an increase in the use of crystal methamphetamine hydrochloride, or ‘ice’. ‘‘There’s no coherent collection [of information] and there would be great value in a large regional study,’’ Mr Biondo said.

‘‘It’s appalling considering the millions of dollars spent by governments. There really is a dearth of data on drug use in regional and rural areas.’’ The Weekly was unable to obtain police statistics on arrests and investigations directly linked to drugs due to a September 1 embargo. However, Mr Biondo said crime data was not fully indicative of the problem. ‘‘Police figures can be a bit rubbery and are only indicative of who they confront. It’s only the tip of the iceberg.’’ Mr Biondo said he’d heard anecdotally that the use of ice in Bacchus Marsh was increasing and that population growth, social isolation and mortgage stress were underpinning the problem.

INBRIEF Studio 22 ready for use Darley’s new civic and community hub features a space for community groups to use. Studio 22 is shared by Moorabool Council’s maternal and child health service, youth services and aged and disability services, with a room left over for other community programs. Improvements were made to the gymnasium, commercial kitchen and external areas, including the oval. There’s a new playground and barbecue area, and car parks and access roads have been sealed. Bacchus Marsh Soccer Club and Darley Cricket Club will share the oval, now open for public use.

Performers, dogs, band and books Moorabool’s ‘Literacy Trail’ returns to Bacchus Marsh’s Main Street this Thursday from 10am. As part of Literacy Week, entertainers such as circus dogs, stilt walkers and jugglers will take to the streets with the Victoria Police Band to spread the joy of reading, writing and counting. Children will receive a show bag with an activity book and ‘literacy passport’ to be stamped along the trail. Mayor Pat Griffin, who last year appeared as Obi Wan Kenobi, said reading, writing and counting skills were vital but also fun. ‘‘The education of our children is a community responsibility,’’ he said. ‘‘The Literacy Trail is a terrific way to promote these skills and put some great ideas, and the desire to learn, into the minds of the children, their parents and teachers.”

Rabbit numbers are increasing in the Pentland Hills area. Pentland Hills Landcare group president Anthony Duffy said populations were steadily rising wherever ‘best practice’ management was not in place. Mr Duffy said larger populations could lead to severe production losses, erosion and weed invasion. ‘‘Rabbits are prolific breeders and also provide a food source for other pests such as foxes,’’ he said. ‘‘Rabbits can readily spread to neighbouring properties, creating a problem that can be costly and time consuming to manage.’’ Last year, the Department of Primary Industries inspected 75 properties in Pentland Hills and Ingilston. Four infringement notices were issued.

Brakes put on gas exploration THE state government has put on hold all hydraulic fracturing for onshore gas exploration, but Moorabool Environment Group (MEG) says the ban does not go far enough. Energy and Resources Minister Michael O’Brien last week suspended all licences for ‘‘fraccing’’ until a national framework had been considered as part of coal seam gas reform. While Moorabool Council was recently urged to sign a moratorium banning coal and coal seam gas mining, a Department of Primary Industries spokesman said coal seam gas exploration was not on the agenda for exploration company Mantle Mining. An Exergen spokesman also confirmed it was not part of their plans. MEG secretary Deb Porter said it wanted a ban on all new coal projects.

‘‘This is a positive step forward. However, it would have provided greater community confidence in the government if all new coal projects were part of this moratorium,’’ she said. ‘‘The partial moratorium is not enough with water resources, farmland and food security, local communities and local economies and natural biodiversity all at risk from proposed new coal developments in Bacchus Marsh and the recent announcement of mining in the Wombat State Forest.’’

Melissa Partridge says knowing that her children can swim is of great importance. ‘‘Every child should know how to swim or at least learn safety around the water.’’ The Melton mother says her children, Jake, 7, and Tahri, 6 (pictured), started swimming when they reached their first birthday. Life Saving Victoria’s drowning report 2010-11 reveals a 4 per cent drop in drowning deaths in Victoria since 2009-10. The 34 drowning deaths confirmed by the Coroners Court of Victoria is the lowest figure recorded. Paul Sadler, founder of swim school Paul Sadler Swimland, says parents should consider swimming lessons for their children. “While it’s chilly outside, winter is a very important time for swimming as it’s a period when lessons are likely to be a child’s only exposure to the aquatic environment. It just makes sense to continue the development of such an important life skill.”

Launching the organisation’s Twitter account and a series of web videos, media and community information manager Lachlan Quick said social media was another medium the organisation could use as it sought to build a more resilient Victoria. “As well as conventional channels, we’ve had a lot of success with our Facebook page, where we’re regularly talking with a community of more than 10,000 people.’’ Storms in January 2011 caused millions of dollars in damage around Moorabool.

WHEN it comes to natural disasters, storms and floods are rarely adequately prepared for, according to Bacchus Marsh’s SES unit controller. During last week’s Storm Safe Week, Dave Lambrick urged residents to take action ahead of spring. ‘‘Floods and storms are the forgotten problem when it comes to weather. ‘‘The cost of a flood can be astronomical. People also underestimate the power of flash-flooding, which we get in Moorabool more than [regular] floods,’’ he said. Mr Lambrick advised residents to tie down outdoor objects and remove loose tree branches. Gutters, downpipes and drains should also be cleaned and a home emergency plan prepared. ‘‘A common problem is a trampoline left in the backyard or small

Family-run businesses often show extra care towards customers and dedication to service, and Aus Tendercuts in Melton is a good example. Owners John and Dianne Borg took over the butcher shop five years ago and, together with their daughter and sons, provide high-quality meat at reasonable prices. Dianne and her daughter Tiffany hold down the fort during the week with the boys helping out on weekends. Butchers John and Richard have been in the meat industry for a combined 50 years and work with apprentice Anthony - all of whom are willing to help customers with their meat selection and recipe ideas. “We sell gluten-free products such as snags, burgers and chevapi,” John says. “Our gourmet dishes which are ready to cook and serve are also popular - lamb curry, beef stroganoff or black-bean stir-fry are the choices.” Most of Aus Tendercuts meat products don’t contain preservatives and are available in a variety of meat packs. “We also sell frozen food such as pasta, pastizzi, vegie burgers, salt-and-pepper squid and mini beef dim sims.” Their extensive website has plenty of recipe ideas, from pumpkin, chorizo and chickpea soup to beef and cheddar chimichangas – and it lists all products and prices per kilo. Spit-roast hire is another string to their bow. Aus Tendercuts, at 146-148 High Street, Melton, opens 7am-5pm Mondays-Fridays and 7am-2pm Saturdays. Inquiries: 9746 7655 or austendercuts.com.au

Community radio station Apple FM is now next to the Montessori Preschool after Moorabool Council closed the station’s old home in Main Street, Bacchus Marsh, earlier this year. Apple seeks not only to inform and entertain but to provide opportunities for budding local DJs, with station manager Karellyn Dangar saying the ages of broadcasters range from 12 to 84. Radio duo Mark Philip (pictured) and Kathy Hughes, who present Your Community, and the station’s 33 volunteers made the switch to the Darley premises in June and haven’t looked back. In the past 12 months, the show has been essential listening for those wanting to know what’s happening in their community. Hughes says the pair have interviewed representatives of more than 100 community groups. The Weekly features on Your Community every Thursday from 9.45am.

The article ‘No early fix for traffic jams’ (Moorabool Weekly, August 14) contains inaccuracies. It states that the Avenue Preservation Group has “conducted surveys on its own proposals”. We have done no such thing. We relied on VicRoads studies and the independent Traffix study, commissioned by Moorabool Council and presented in March 2011. This independent evidence states that the fix for traffic congestion is indisputably the extension of Halletts Way, not the failed Woolpack proposal. The Avenue Preservation Group stands by the rejection of the Woolpack proposal, and hopes for rapid progress on Woolpack alternatives and the Halletts Way extension, so unfortunately and extensively delayed by the council’s poor decision-making.

T wasn’t a case of smashing glass ceilings so much as windscreens which catapulted Kim McAliney to the helm of Victoria’s fastestgrowing local government area. “I had three windscreens broken commuting along this goat track between Sunshine and Truganina,” she recalls. “They also had 30 or 40 buses a day going down this shocking road and I joined the Wyndham transport advisory committee because I was concerned about safety. “I ended up involved in a major roads campaign, which led me to first stand for council. ‘‘I lost that first election, but I knew then I was in this for the long haul.” If McAliney is a perfect poster girl to encourage women to stand in the October local government elections it’s because she has never considered her gender an impediment. At 16, she made history by becoming the first female to join the men’s division of StJohns Ambulance because she didn’t want to have to wear a dress, as did the women nursing cadets in the then-segregated service. “There are enough challenges in life without making what you wear one of them,” she laughs of her teenage stand. For that reason she also tends to eschew the cumbersome robe of her current office as Wyndham mayor. “I respect the history and the office by wearing the chain, but let’s face it, the robe is not terribly practical or approachable.” Like McAliney, many women wind up standing for council as a logical extension of advo-

cacy groups and community campaigns. Sophie Ramsay, the longest-serving of Melton shire’s three female councillors, first decided to run for office in 2001 after spending five years raising funds for an all-abilities playground. As the single mother to three girls, one of whom is disabled, and then carer to her grandmother, it could be said she had enough on her plate, but standing for council was very much Sophie’s choice. “Everybody was a little shocked and worried,” Ramsay recalls of her decision to nominate. “They said things like: ‘Soph, you’ll get eaten alive’.” Instead, she has thrived, twice-serving as Melton’s mayor, and she makes a compelling case for other women to join her. “To me, local government isn’t a stepping stone; it’s the pinnacle, and I would love to see more women involved because women bring a lot of compassion and empathy to council. “Women with different life experiences need to be part of the debate and discussion to make well-rounded policy for the whole of the community.” That doesn’t mean it’s always a picnic. “Sure, there have been times when I’ve come home in tears and I haven’t been able to win an argument, but I just keep chipping away and usually those things I really care about get embedded in policies.” They include the introduction of a child-minding rebate to make it a little easier for female councillors. The rebate can also be accessed by male councillors where the need arises.

Former Moorabool Mayor Di McAuliffe. Picture: Martina Gemmola sorry, I just can’t attend it’.” And with a blended brood of seven children, including twins delivered halfway through the current council term, she knows what she’s talking about. “A twin pregnancy comes with a multitude of complications so I had to be very careful,” Benson says. “To put it in context, for the last six months of my pregnancy I was flat on my back on the fifth floor of the Royal Women’s. “But having said that, because of modern technology I was able to have my laptop, have wireless broadband and have my mobile so people would still be contacting me on council issues — the potholes in their street and so on. “I was still doing work on the strategic stuff, but I was literally bed-bound.” But it’s not every woman who could face that situation with such equanimity.

As Ros Spence, the out-going mayor of Hume, puts it: “I think there are stages in life where it would be extremely challenging to take on this role.” It really comes down then to an individual’s circumstance and the attributes required to make a good councillor, rather than their gender. “There are a lot of things you need to be able to do to be an effective councillor,” Spence says. “You need to be well-organised, you need to have a willingness to listen, you need to have a willingness to be co-operative, but ultimately what you need is a passion for the community and a desire to make positive change in the local community.” • Nominations for council candidates close at noon on September 25.

Why build when you can buy This one-year-old house with upgraded features represents good value for money, writes Carole Levy uilt by Showcase Homes just a year ago, this modern house with upgraded features is sure to attract interest from first homebuyers seeking genuine value for money. It has all the right ingredients for a contemporary lifestyle, and a backyard with enough space to explore lots of design ideas. The property is well positioned for a family, too, being a walk away from Catholic Regional College, St Catherine’s and Wedge Park primary schools, childcare — and Westlake, a great spot to take the kids to feed the ducks. Kerbside, it’s all low maintenance, with a series of boxed gardens — mulched and pebbled —

with a Japanese maple and decorative grasses. Inside, feature walls and streamlined roller blinds couple with a neutral decor to create a crisp living environment, and extra thought has been put to the placement of carpet and tiles. Ranged along the tiled entry hall are three bedrooms and the main bathroom. Two bedrooms have wardrobes, while the main (through double doors) has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite with heat lamp and dual vanity basins. Next door to the laundry with storage and garage access, the kitchen has Caesarstonetopped benches, a single-door pantry and

Technika dishwasher, 900mm gas cooker and canopy range hood. The meals area is tiled and the family zone is carpeted, sensible choices for comfort and easy upkeep. The neighbouring rumpus room is carpeted and accessed through an open doorway. The meals area opens to full-width concrete paving, the ideal base for a future pergola. The backyard has a garden shed, lots of grass, and garden beds along fences. The double garage has a remote-controlled door, and back roller door opening onto a concrete-paved parking spot.

MOTORING ●

Peugeot makes styling statement Ewan Kennedy road tests French car-maker’s new compact SUV he 4008 is French carmaker Peugeot’s first entry into the booming compact SUV market. It’s part of a joint venture between Peugeot and Mitsubishi and comes from the same Japanese factory as the Mitsubishi ASX. The ASX was launched here in July 2010, nearly two years ahead of the Peugeot. Although the two vehicles are almost identical under the skin, the Peugeot 4008 and Mitsubishi ASX have their own distinctive styling. Styling is a very personal thing, but we’ve long been fans of the current Peugeot design theme, especially the wide-mouthed grille that stands out as the 4008’s dominant feature. Inside is a soft-texture fascia and lacquered piano-black centre console, which add a gentle ambience. The controls are large and well-placed with an instrument panel that’s back-lit day and night. Interior space is about par for the course with reasonable rear headroom despite the dipping roof line. The rear seat is suitable for only two adults or three pre-teen children, with borderline

T

rear legroom when the front seat is well back. Boot capacity is 416 litres with a relatively high loading lip, partly the result of having a fullsized spare wheel under the floor. Storage space expands to 1193 litres when the rear seatbacks are folded, and there’s the alternative of a ski hatch behind the folding armrest. Peugeot 4008 comes in two equipment levels: Active (with 2WD and AWD, manual and CVT) and Allure (AWD and CVT only). The 4008 is offered only with a 2.0-litre petrol engine. With a price range of $28,990 to $38,490, the Peugeot 4008 offers excellent value for a European SUV or, more correctly, a European-styled SUV. Overall, the Peugeot 4008 is a neat, well-built and well-engineered compact SUV that combines the best from its two source continents. It’s more at home in an urban rather than a rural environment where the combination of relatively heavy weight and small engine means that it can struggle in hilly areas. Equipment levels are high and it offers excellent value for money.

Distinctive: The Peugeot 4008 combines European style and Japanese engineering.

Tight tussles highlight last round BY TEO PELLIZZERI

Handing off: Western Jets’ Jack Walker keeps the ball moving as he is tackled by Calder Cannons’ Darcy Bailey. Picture: Darren Howe

Jets put Cannons to sword WESTERN Jets may have been out of the TAC Cup finals race for a number of weeks but gave an emphatic reminder that they were best of the rest with a 58-point belting of Calder Cannons on Saturday. The finals-bound Cannons had no answers for the Jets’ nine-goal last quarter at Highgate Reserve in the 18.11 (119) to 8.13 (61) result. It means the Jets finish the TAC Cup season ninth on the ladder, half a game behind eighth-placed Geelong Falcons and seventh-placed Calder Cannons. The percentage boost means the Jets finish the season with eight wins and nine losses and almost dead level on points for and against with a percentage of 99.08. Goals were shared around on Saturday, with Spencer White booting three majors while there were two each for Jack Dorgan, Ashlin Brown, Jake Greiser and Josh Bench. Better players for the Jets were Lachlan Hunter, Mark Orr, Sam Critchley, Harley Walshe, Jack Walker and Jason Robinson. Go to meltonweekly.com.au for an action gallery from the CannonsJets clash.

WHILE the ladder couldn’t move there were still two hardfought games decided by less than a goal between finalsbound Riddell District Football League opposition at the weekend. Sunbury Kangaroos got the morale boost of a win against minor premier Diggers Rest with a three-point win, while Macedon and Melton Central tuned up for their respective elimination finals with the Cats winning by four points. The results failed to alter the ladder, though, with Diggers Rest and Sunbury Kangaroos to square off again this weekend at neutral venue Kilmore in the qualifying final on Saturday. Romsey celebrated Matt Davidson’s 100th goal of the season in the early stages before going on to beat Rockbank by 37 points. Now the reigning premier will look to avenge last week’s defeat against Melton Central when the teams square off in the first elimination final at Romsey Park on Sunday. Riddell Bombers were comfortable 63-point winners against Woodend Hesket and will take the momentum into the second elimination final against Macedon at Boardman Reserve on Sunday. Go to meltonweekly.com.au for action galleries from the game between Diggers Rest and Sunbury Kangaroos as well as Romsey against Rockbank.

Melton gets the points but not the praise BY TEO PELLIZZERI

Knocked over: Melton goal scorer Michael Kapiris is knocked down by his Balmoral opponent.

Picture: Ari Hatzis

MELTON Phoenix coach Danny Gnjidic made sure his team knew that a 2-1 win against lastplaced Balmoral at the weekend was not a victory to savour. While the three points were an absolute necessity, the performance was not one the Melton coach wanted to see heading into the make-orbreak stage of the FFV provisional league 3 north-west season. Melton moved into third on the ladder, albeit having played two games more than promotion rival Heidelberg Stars and three more than Bundoora United. Darebin United leads the table with 42 points from 19 played, while Heidelberg Stars are second with 36 from 17, Melton has 36 from 19 and Bundoora United has 35 from 16 played. But Gnjidic said his team had done its part in the promotion chase by putting the points on the board and avoiding fixture congestion at the business end of the season. A goal after 20 seconds before Balmoral had even touched the ball left Melton in control on Saturday after Chris Briggs set up Michael Kapi-

ris. Briggs then scored himself after 20 minutes to put Melton in control on the scoreboard. But a Balmoral goal back was followed by a scrappy second half in which Melton failed to capitalise on a team Gnjidic said was there for the taking. A late corner for Balmoral was the closest the visitors came to an equaliser. ‘‘To be honest it was probably our poorest performance of the year,’’ Gnjidic said. ‘‘Balmoral were there to beat and our boys thought it was going to be an easy day out. They didn’t play to the level they have over the last few weeks. ‘‘We’ve got to go out there in the last three games and get results and take advantage of any slip up.’’ Melton plays Heidelberg United this weekend in a chance for redemption after a 3-1 loss on June 16. ‘‘They’re the one team that really put us to the sword,’’ Gnjidic said. Melton’s final three games of the season are all against promotion rivals, Heidelberg United this weekend, then Darebin United and Bundoora United. Go to meltonweekly.com.au for an action gallery of Melton’s win over Balmoral.

Cats gain mental advantage IT’S advantage Macedon in its back-to-back battle with Melton Central in Riddell District Netball League A grade. The Cats will take the upper hand into this weekend’s qualifying final after overpowering Central 52-36 in the final home-and-away round at MacPherson Park on Saturday. Macedon claimed the minor premiership with the win, a near-perfect 15-win, one-loss campaign from the Blues (14-2) in second. Romsey consolidated third place with a 74-17 win against Rockbank and will play Wallan in the first elimination final, the latter having the Lancefield bye in the final round. Broadford will play Riddell in the second elimination final, with Broadford beating Kilmore 61-20

and Riddell downing Woodend Hesket 67-19. In the weekend’s other match, Sunbury Kangaroos defeated Diggers Rest 57-23. A grade finals: Saturday — qualifying final at Kilmore: Macedon v Melton Central. Sunday — elimination final 1 at Romsey: Romsey v Wallan. Sunday — elimination final 2 at Boardman Reserve: Broadford v Riddell. Go to meltonweekly.com.au for more action shots from the Melton Central v Macedon clash.

Darley goes under after five-goal blast BY GRAEME FORSYTH FIVE unanswered East Point goals in five explosive minutes early in the third quarter paved the way for the Kangaroos to blast their way past Darley by 25 points at Darley Park on Saturday, and into the coveted third place on the BFL ladder. The Kangaroos fought back from a 16-point half-time deficit to win 15.17 (107) to 12.10 (82) and send Darley to the second elimination final against North Ballarat this Sunday. The opening term started at a furious finals-like pace with both teams slotting through early majors. For the Devils, Dane Grenfell was influential up forward, but could only convert one of three gettable shots. At the other end of the ground, East Point spearhead Dan Jordan was having similar troubles but the Kangaroos still held a 14-point quarter-time lead. Everything then clicked for Darley in the second quarter. The Devils’ defenders restricted East Point to a solitary goal, while Darley’s on-ball brigade provided a bundle of scoring opportunities, which turned into five unanswered goals. However, the next 30 minutes of football belonged to East Point. A goal to forward Brad Whitta-

ker 30 seconds after the opening ruck contest was quickly followed by a bombardment of successful shots at goal by Simon Mitchellhill, David Brady, and Matt Bilton. Despite a brief rally (and two goals), two late majors from Jordan capped off an exhilarating eight-goal turnaround for the Kangaroos, and a 19-point three-quarter-time lead. The message from the Darley huddle at the long break was “don’t panic”, while for East Point it was a demand for a greater defensive effort from his wingers and halfforwards. After Bilton snapped truly to give the Kangaroos a 25-point lead, the Darley supporters were given a glimmer of hope when the Dane Grenfell converted a rolling snap into his fifth goal of the match. But Devils’ hearts were broken minutes later, when East Point’s Brad Whittaker turned a misdirected Devil backline pass into a match sealing four goal victory for the Kangaroos. “East Point imposed themselves on us today,” Darley coach Rod MacPherson said. “You either intimidate or get intimidated, and East really came to play today, and we were second to the ball.” — Ballarat Courier Go to meltonweekly.com.au for more action shots from the Darley-East Point match.
