Longer hours knocked back Cr Moore said gaming venues should have a level playing field, while Cr Halligan said the Cardinia Club did not entice young people. Speaking against the proposal, Cr Brett Owen said the council had successfully appealed at VCAT in 2011 for a 1am closing time at the Pink Hill Hotel instead of the 3am closure sought by the venue. ‘‘No doubt this is a difficult decision, but we’ve got to look forward. ‘‘It is all about being consistent. It’s a highdensity area with lots of houses, with the potential for a retirement village directly south of this site.’’ Cr Collin Ross said a 3am closing time was reasonable but would not be fair to future residents. A vote on the second motion to approve a 1am extension was carried, four votes to three.

A PROPOSAL by a Pakenham gaming venue to stay open until 3am has been narrowly knocked back by Cardinia Shire Council. The Cardinia Club had applied to amend its planning permit to increase its hours of operation by at least two hours every day except Good Friday and Anzac Day. At a meeting last week, councillors voted against the original amendment, three votes to four, but accepted a recommendation by council officers to allow an extension to 1am every day. The club in Racecourse Road is now open until 11pm on Sunday, midnight from Monday to Wednesday and 1am from Thursday to Saturday. The amendment also requires crowd controllers to patrol between 11pm and 1am every day

and a ban on live or recorded music and live entertainment, except background music. Cr George Blenkhorn, who put forward the motion, said all profits from the venue, owned by Pakenham Racing Club, would likely go towards the construction of the new racecourse at Tynong. He said the Cardinia Club was losing patrons to other venues that stayed open for longer. ‘‘A mile away, you have two facilities where you can play pokies all night.’’ He said problem gamblers were an issue but a later closing time could be beneficial. ‘‘If the club closes at 3am, the problem people are likely to go home. ‘‘My preference is for all venues to close at 1am, but that is beyond our power.’’ Councillors Graeme Moore and Stuart Halligan supported the motion.

Berwick Fields Primary School pupils got the green light to set a record on Friday. Pupils gathered in the school’s gym for the attempt at the record for the world’s largest energyefficiency lesson. Teachers separated 380 pupils into small groups to simultaneously teach the lesson, which focused on energy use in everyday life and what kinds of practical action schools and pupils could take to reduce the energy they used. The previous record was 250 participants. Photo and video evidence will be sent with witness statements to the Guinness World Book of Records office in London for verification. The event coincided with Enviroweek.

IT took the wisdom of Solomon to solve Berwick’s great public toilet dilemma. Casey councillors — and residents — have been divided over whether funds for a toilet block at Pioneers Park should be diverted to satisfy the needs of the Berwick Men’s Shed group, which has been promised use of a shed in Akoonah Park. With most of the shedders of a mature age, the lack of a toilet was a major inconvenience, but the Berwick Rotary Club and the Berwick Village Chamber of Commerce were adamant: Pioneer Park needed public toilets urgently. At a council meeting last Tuesday, Cr Judy Owen proposed an elegant solution: build both. She suggested the $200,000 set aside in this year’s budget for the

Pioneers Park toilet block should be split in two. Councillors unanimously supported her proposal that $100,000 should be used to build an internal toilet for the Men’s Shed group. The other $100,000 will be used to make a start on the Pioneer Park toilet block, with another $100,000 to be set aside in next year’s budget to complete the project. Yesterday, Men’s Shed organiser John Byron said the proposal was a good result for his group and users of Pioneers Park. He said machinery was being delivered and benches were being made for the shed. ‘‘We’re looking like we’ll be open in about a week.’’

Police boost for the hills BY JAMES TAYLOR A 24-HOUR police station for Emerald is a step closer with the state government announcing the site of the $8.8 million complex last week. Police and the Emerald community say the new station, which will be built at 386-390 Belgrave-Gembrook Road, will make the town safer and improve response times. Police Minister Peter Ryan and Gembrook MP Brad Battin inspected the site last week. Tenders will go out in October and construction is scheduled to begin in November. The complex is expected to open in November next year. Emerald resident Peter Nodin, who has lived in the town for 43 years, has been campaigning for a better station for over a decade and in 2001 organised a petition with more than 3000 signatures. He said a 24-hour station was a big win for Emerald. ‘‘It’ll give the community a bit more of a safer feel at night.’’ He said the justice of the peace and signing service at the station meant hills residents would no longer have to travel for the service. Sergeant Fiona Tolmie, who is based at the

Better response: Brad Battin, Peter Ryan and Sergeant Fiona Tolmie look over the plans for the 24-hour police station in Emerald. Picture: James Taylor existing Emerald station, said she was looking forward to a more modern, larger complex. Inspector Chris Major of the Cardinia police said the size of the force in Emerald would eventually be one senior sergeant, six sergeants and 24 senior constables to allow policing around the clock. ‘‘It’s ever-changing up here. Road trauma is a big issue, there’s a bit of property damage.’’ In the lead-up the previous state election, the Coalition pledged to build a 24-hour station in Emerald. Mr Battin said the new station would also have a multipurpose room that could be used by the CFA as an incident control centre. Mr Ryan said town planning documents for the station had been lodged with Cardinia Shire.

Hands-on initiative to give schools a chance BY JAMES TAYLOR

the school first received in 2009. ‘‘Up to that time, not only were a large percentage of students who entered our college below expected levels for literacy and numeracy, our school was also failing to bring them up to speed. ‘‘Put simply, kids who were arriving behind on basic skills were not catching up fast enough — in fact, they were falling further behind.’’ He said the funding was a godsend and allowed the school to employ two

leading teachers — in literacy and numeracy — and a leadership coach, which produced remarkable results. ‘‘Our NAPLAN data now shows the college is actively improving student performance in literacy and numeracy at a rate higher than the national average. ‘‘VCE data has continued to improve each year since 2008 and our pass rate for senior VCAL sits at very close to 100 per cent.’’ He said the state government did not forward National Partnerships funding to the school last year and there was ‘‘considerable uncertainty’’ about whether it would be passed on in the future. ‘‘Further delays may result in some of the very productive initiatives being scaled back significantly.’’ Last Monday’s event, organised by the Australia Education Union, marked six months since the Gonski report was released.

A BERWICK principal says his school is a prime example of how better funding for government schools leads to better results for children. Michael Muscat of Kambrya College travelled to Canberra last week to support calls for the federal government to immediately implement the reccomendations of the Gonski review. He also signed one of 6700 hands — one for every public school in Australia — planted outside Parliament House. The review calls for a federal funding injection of $5 billion a year to schools, which works out to an average increase of $1500 a student. Mr Muscat said the extra money would allow Kambrya to lock in the improvements it had made through National Partnerships funding, which

Removable teeth (dentures) full or part, are an artificial body part. They replace lost gum (bone resorption) and teeth, but will never have the same performance as the original. However with the know how of accurate and precision measurements, as well as the use of high quality materials as well as processing techniques, we can get as close as possible. The very closest to regaining stability (particularly lower dentures) is implant technology (implant overdentures).

Our objective is Improving Treatment Outcomes as well as your Health and Quality of Life. Quality service and hygiene are not compromised for price. The ability to cope with dental prosthetic appliances depends on all of the following: 1/ Health in general. 2/ Trauma to mouth/facial area or any current Physio and/ or Chiropractic treatment being undertaken at time. 3/ Recent extractions of natural teeth. 4/ Denture wearing history. 5/ The length of time any existing dentures had been worn. 6/ Health of spine and nervous system. 7/ Age, occupation and diet. 8/ Patients commitment to adapt to changes necessary for improved function. 9/ Level of degenerative joint disease of TMJ 10/ Level of gum resorption 11/ Level of muscle control and ability to adapt 12/ Patient expectation – you now have a false body part that is mobile and removable 13/ Grinding or clenching of teeth – tension in the facial and jaw musculature

FEATURESTORY

And the beat goes on They’re police, but their mission is music and making people feel good, writes LORETTA HALL. t can be a glamorous life fronting a showband, but this is not one of those days. The band’s equipment truck, emptied of trunks of brass instruments and sound gear, doubles as a hasty change-room for Elise Beattie as she transforms from “worker ant” roadie to lead singer in a shopping mall in Melbourne’s east. Long loose hair is secured in a no-nonsense plait, and casual clothing discarded for navy trousers, sensible flat black shoes and a crisp light-blue shirt with an epaulette and stripe on each shoulder. Only the showbiz shades remain from her civilian guise as Beattie prepares to front the Victoria Police Showband with fellow senior constable Daina Jowsey under the midday sun for the mostly unsuspecting shoppers and commuters of Box Hill. Music director (and prominent Melbourne musician) Daryl McKenzie is absent, so Beattie and Jowsey consult over a whiteboard song list and a takeaway coffee while fellow band members set up 500 leads and an array of instruments for the gig. They choose songs from hundreds of the band’s own arrangements, mixing swing with jazz, classical, musical theatre, rock and pop. Beattie is down for Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, Jowsey is opening with Dancing in the Street. Together. they will close with what Beattie says is a crowd favourite, The Flower Duet, a soaring soprano aria from French opera Lakme. It is one of the tracks they performed for the Showband’s Divas CD, sales of which aid the police force’s Blue Ribbon Foundation community program. There are a few curious glances from passersby as Beattie completes her assigned chores and sets up the microphones. But once she emerges from the back of the truck an audience begins to gather and several shoppers question the diminutive but authoritative figure at the microphone stand. “As soon as you are in uniform there’s a certain level of interest; people come up and ask what you are doing,” Beattie says. “We explain to them that what we are doing is a full-time job.” It has been a full-time occupation since the 1980s, when professional musicians were first sworn in as police members. When the police band originated 120 years ago it was formed by those on the beat who volunteered to play an instrument part-time. In the 1980s, Beattie was singing Grizabella’s Memory from the musical Cats on Box Hill school Our Lady of Sion College’s stage, dressed in a black leotard with a newspaper-stuffed tail. “It’s not like it was here when I was at school [in Box Hill],” Beattie says. “It’s a bit different now; there is a big drug problem and a lot of youth unemployment. “In the break, people talk about bad experiences they have had living around here, and their experiences with police. You get comments like,

‘I usually hate coppers but youse are all right’. “A lot of what we do is PR, and the music reaches people and you see smiles on their faces. “Our primary role is to perform for graduations and police functions, but otherwise we perform at anything community-based that benefits the community.” The showband plays across Melbourne and regional Victoria and its members come from all suburbs across Melbourne, from Eltham to Sandringham. Gig locations this year have included the city’s Federation Square, Nunawading, Ashburton, St Kilda, Williamstown, Frankston, Emerald Lake, Geelong, Swan Hill and Castlemaine. There are school performances, too, and the public can check the police website for the showband’s calendar for a performance in their neighbourhood. More glitzy gigs include charity nights, when Beattie frocks up to perform at venues that have included Crown’s Palladium room, Hamer Hall and Melbourne’s World Congress Centre. Beattie, 46, has been on patrol with the showband around Victoria for 11 years and previously sang with the Victoria Police’s rock band Code One for six years. In January, her role in the police force was recognised with a national award for “rockin’ it”. She wears the stripe of a senior constable “and we have full police powers of arrest”. But, as with the rest of the 24 showband members, Beat-

tie says she is not operational as a police officer. Band leader Sergeant Pat Hudson, who has in the past been in the back-row line-up on trombone, watches from beyond the police-taped stage edge as the party gets started. Music spills into the mall and an audience builds. Most of the smoking section — a halfbrick wall outside the supermarket — is full. Hudson says that at the height of the set about 200 people are toe-tapping to the tunes. The youth of Box Hill that the showband is reaching out to largely respond to the offer of musical friendship, with most unplugging at least one earphone to catch a Lady Gaga or Beyonce song. An older fan, Robert Fraser, 59, dances through all three sets, oblivious to the fact he is mostly dancing solo on the pavement. Fraser is a regular at showband gigs, says Hudson. A middle-aged woman kicks off her heels, dumps her handbag under the watchful gaze of the band’s brass section and joins him for a track. Towards the end of the last set, a trio of teens lose their inhibitions and let their lanky limbs loose. Fans can find performance dates on the police website, which also lists gigs for the other two police bands, Code One and the Victoria Police Pipe Band, which brings bagpipes and drums to many Melbourne parades. Collectively, the three bands perform about 500 gigs a year and reach about 650,000

Victorians a year. “One of the things the band does is to go find people who can’t come to us,” Hudson says. ‘‘Often it’s in an unstable environment not particularly conducive to bands.” In times of hardship and disaster, the showband is dispatched to communities where an uplifting tune can bring some cheer or relief in tough times. “When there were floods in country Victoria a year ago we had a week-long tour in those regions and based ourselves in Horsham. We were bused out to country towns I had never heard of and all 50 people in the town came to see us. When we do a show for them it’s the only thing that has made them smile in a long time.” The performances are not all about the music and Beattie spends a lot of time talking to locals. “That’s experiential contact,’’ says Hudson. ‘‘The audience doesn’t just see a copper in a uniform. They see Elise sing and talk to them and take a positive experience from it.” Beattie recalls a big community memorial service after the 9/11 attacks in the US. ‘‘Lots of American expats and government officials were there. I sang the Australian anthem and Daina sang the American anthem. It was one of the hardest things I have had to do. There was not a dry eye in the place. “After events like that you go home and have a cry. At those emotional gigs, that’s when your professional experience comes flooding back because you have got to concentrate on getting the job done.” In addition to Cats, Beattie took lead roles in her school’s Gilbert and Sullivan productions and studied voice at Melba Conservatorium and primary teaching in music at Victoria College. She gained professional experience with Dame Joan Sutherland in Othello for the Australian Opera (now Opera Australia) and with The Wiggles in front of a crowd of 80,000. “I still have singing lessons because it is important that our music is as high a standard as it can be,” Beattie says. “Being with the band involves a regimented lifestyle, especially for the singers to stay fit and healthy. “In a 10-day fortnight we get four days off, and those 10 days can be at any time. We spend many hours travelling . . . being on tour with the band on the bus is like being in a sitcom. There are some incredibly funny personalities.”


NEWS ●

Inspectors visiting sites BUILDING sites in Casey are first in line in a statewide blitz on the housing industry. The state government announced Operation SafeSite on August 10 and WorkCover safety inspectors have begun visiting houses under construction in Casey. The unannounced visits will focus on basic safety planning, site supervision, prevention of falls from heights, electrical safety, site housekeeping and onsite worker facilities. WorkCover inspectors will also check documents such as safety co-ordination plans and safe work method statements. Casey was the first of five suburban and regional areas visited in Operation SafeSite and was chosen for its high volume of domestic construction work. Inspectors moved on to Pakenham last week. The workplace safety regulator says the trench collapse in Pakenham on August 11 was a timely reminder for the industry. Construction manager Allan Beacom said it was fortunate the worker had a colleague nearby who was able to raise the alarm. “Broken limbs, asphyxia and crush injuries are just some of the serious injuries that can occur

ADVERTISING FEATURE

In-House expertise he new team at the Bear House restaurant in Cranbourne provides a fresh approach and exciting outlook to the dining scene. This approach is exemplified by its two new chefs: head chef Nathan Thomas, previously of Caffe e Cucina and with 40 years experience in the industry, and second chef Hector Rosales, of the Middle Brighton Baths, who has 15 years experience. Nathan and Hector were enticed to The Bear House by owner Terry Yin. The pair have worked together before, and ‘‘jumped at the challenge to place the restaurant were it deserves to be’’, Mr Yin said. The chefs’ approach is simple: they use only the freshest ingredients combined with their knowledge and passion to create exciting menus and delicious daily specials. The Bear House Restaurant has operated with its new focus for two months. It serves exciting dishes from lamb pinchos, North Sea scallops with pork sausage and pea and roasted pork knuckle with sauerkraut and boiled potato to linguine with blue swimmer crab, tiger prawn, mussels, garlic, chilli and parsley, and delicious tiramisu. Mr Yin has a simple philosophy: serve fresh food, provide good service, and order deliveries

Students get into the trill of opera

Rock ‘n’roll: The music of Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, ABBA and Johnny O’Keefe will be remembered in The Ultimate Tribute at Cardinia Cultural Centre, Lakeside Drive, Pakenham, at 8pm on September 14. Tickets from $20. Details: 1300 887 624.

BY JAMES TAYLOR ow long would it take you to create a miniopera? For 21 students at Nossal High School, it only took 21 hours. The group is in the final stages of preparing a 28-minute show, one of four created by schools in the WotOpera program to be staged in Dandenong on Friday. Besides stepping on stage, students in the music theatre education program wrote the libretto, composed the music and built the sets under the guidance of WotOpera artistic director Murray Dahm. Nossal’s performance features a murder in the first 30 seconds and also includes a pompous detective, an undertaker who can talk to the dead. The themes include unrequited love and jealousy. The group held a dress rehearsal for their fellow pupils on Tuesday. Assistant principal Toni Meath said the students — from years 9 to 11 — volunteered for the four-day intensive program held at the school over four weeks and cast the lead roles themselves. ‘‘These aren’t necessarily our dramatic students, so this has uncovered some talent. It’s really inclusive, it brings the best out of the kids.’’

History expo: South East Victoria Family & Regional History Expo, 10am-4pm Saturday, Cranbourne Public Hall, 166 High Street. Cost: $8. Children under 15 free. Details: 9704 7372. New skills: Free workshops in calligraphy, strength training, tai chi, yoga and art for Adult Learners Week at Balla Balla Community Centre, Cranbourne East, between September 1 and 8. Bookings essential. Details: 5990 0900.

Murderous intent: Nossal High School students rehearse their mini-opera. WotOpera project assistant Steph Acraman said the students had few rules to follow other than respecting each other on stage. ‘‘They’ve scripted and written everything. It’s an incredible creation, and much better than anything we adults could come up with ourselves.’’ Albert Park, Kilbreda and Melbourne high schools are also in the program this year. WotOpera is a spin-off of the Artology not-for-

profit organisation, founded by Graeme Wood. More than 1200 students from more than 50 schools across Australia have taken part since 2008. The WotOpera concert will be held at the Drum Theatre, Dandenong, from 7pm on Friday. Tickets are $10/$5. Details: wotopera.artology.org.au.

Hawks slam the door on St John’s Maskiell said it was a credit to his team that it held St John’s goalless after quarter time. ‘‘It was a bit ominous when they kicked the first goal. Cranbourne did that last year as well,’’ he said. ‘‘It could have put a dent in the girls’ confidence but to their credit they slowly got away.’’ Maskiell said the victory was given even more merit with a large turnover of players from last year’s premiership outfit. ‘‘We won it last year so we had a lot of new players wanting to play with us this year. ‘‘There were a lot of changes looking back on last year’s grand final side.’’

BY BRAD McGRATH HALLAM cemented itself as a powerhouse in the Victorian Women’s Football League with a 14-point victory over St John’s in the south-east division grand final on last Sunday week. The Hawks’ victory backed up from last year’s premiership and capped off a season of dominance, with the Tim Maskiell-coached team going through the season undefeated. The 3.5 (23) to 1.3 (9) victory came in horrendous conditions at Coburg City Oval against a St John’s outfit that can hold their heads high after putting in a spirited performance. ‘‘The weather was pretty average and it was pretty muddy — I think there had been a few games played on the ground on the Saturday — and it evened out the teams a bit,’’ Maskiell said. ‘‘We had beaten St John’s three times during the year.’’ St John’s, based out of Dandenong, booted the opening goal of the match through Kerry Trevillian but Hallam soon responded to take a three-

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 only suitable for 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 with the rear seatbacks folded with the alternative of a ski hatch behind the folding armrest. Peugeot 4008 comes in two wequipment levels: Active (with 2WD and AWD, manual and CVT) and Allure (AWD and CVT only). The 4008 is offered 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.

Scorps’ skipper back with a blast BY BRAD McGRATH IT was fitting Kyle Matthews kicked the goal that sealed the Casey Scorpions’ double chance and a home final in the VFL finals. It was typical of the club captain to take a courageous mark 40 metres out with just minutes to go and convert with minimum fuss. The Matthews mark and goal signalled the hard nut was back after a horror run with injury and his goal ensured the Scorpions would have a double chance and a home final in week 1 of the finals. The Scorpions’ 12.14 (86) to 10.7 (67) victory over Sandringham was full of merit. They trailed early in tough conditions, gritted it out, led at half-time and then fell 10 points behind by the final change. But with the breeze at their back Brett Lovett’s side charged home with six goals to two in the final term to seal a great victory. ‘‘The aim at the start of any season is to make finals and then finish top four,’’ Lovett said. ‘‘To finish on top is a good reward for the effort the young fellas have put in. ‘‘We went into the game to play well and we just wanted to play well and take some good form going into the finals.’’ The Scorpions now face Werribee at Casey Fields on Sunday in the qualifying final. With Melbourne due to play at the MCG yesterday, Lovett was unsure of the make-up of the Scorpions’ line-up. But he did confirm highly rated youngster Jack Viney will return after serving a oneweek suspension. ‘‘The finals exposure will give him some experience for next year.’’ The Scorpions had winners on every line. None more so than young tall Jack Fitzpatrick, who booted his fourth major to put his team within a point at the 22-minute mark of the final quarter. His fifth goal put the Scorpions a goal up with several minutes remaining after an earlier miss. Matthews then stepped up to the plate and Jordan Gysberts booted one in junk time with the match already over. Daniel Archer booted a goal straight after the half-time break to put the Zebras four points up. A little later dangerous forward Beau Dowler marked strongly and put through his third to give the Zebras a 10-point break. Casey hit back strongly in the second term with the first three majors but Sandringham goaled late to

mately prevailed 1-0. In the final they met fellow Australians Bowen Academy. Bowen opened the scoring, after making the decision to attack early. Footskills found it hard to score, after Bowen chose to rest on their lead, but eventually scored shortly before half-time. It was a procession after half-time, with Footskills putting through 3-0 . Mackie credited the team’s success to Williamson, whom he said ‘‘doesn’t always take the star players, but moulds them into a very organised team’’. — Michael Ely

Australian team collects soccer cup in China A HAMPTON Park teenager helped lead an Australian team to victory over Asia’s best soccer academies last month. Sixteen-year-old Nathan Mackie joined his Footskills teammates — some from as far away as Sale — in China, where they they won The Great Wall Cup. The annual event hosts the best academies in Asia/ Pacific, but it was Footskills, coached by Hallam Senior College’s Ian Williamson, which ultimately went undefeated to win the tournament. Their tournament started against Guangxi, the defending champions from China.

DANDENONG Stingrays secured their top-four berth with a 28-point victory over Geelong at Highgate Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The Stingrays now clash with Gippsland Power at Visy Park on Saturday in a qualifying final and have a handful of players who could be recalled. Small forward Clayton McCartney is an almost certain inclusion but the Stingrays will closely monitor Nathan Wright (hamstring), Tim McGennis (knee) and Nick Newman (knee), who all suffered slight injuries in the victory over the Falcons. Stingrays regional manager Mark Wheeler said the coaching staff had placed a high emphasis on the match, as a loss could have had them plummet as low as eighth. ‘‘We had to control our own destiny,’’ he said. ‘‘It was an important game for both sides — they were pushing for a topfour spot and we could have drifted to eighth.’’ The Stingrays did not have it all their own way. At half-time they trailed by nine points but a few crucial positional changes sparked them in the second half. Lachie Whitfield’s move into the midfield was the turning point, with the highly rated youngster dominating the contest in the second half. Fellow star Billy Hartung was also instrumental in the victory. His run and poise helped the Stingrays kick seven goals to one in the second half. ‘‘Lachie was brilliant. He just jumped into the midfield in the second half and just turned it on,’’ Wheeler said. ‘‘He and Billy Hartung were excellent — it’s a real strength of our team that we have so many players who can go through the midfield.’’ A highlight of the contest was when ruckman Lewis Pierce took a strong mark on the boundary line and threaded a goal to seal the victory in the final term. Pierce received a heavy knock in the opening term and was below his best for much of the day but, like his team, roared to life in the final term. Wheeler said the Stingrays were primed for the clash against the Power, whom he described as a tough opposition. ‘‘Very, very strong team,’’ Wheeler said. ‘‘I rated them top two at the start of the season and it’s no surprise that they finished on top.’’

Big haul: Jack Fitzpatrick booted five goals in the Casey Scorpions’ victory over Sandringham on Saturday. stay in touch at half-time. In the opening stanza the Scorpions were dominated in general play and went into the first change trailing by 16 points.


Battle of powerhouses tipped BY BRAD McGRATH NARRE Warren coach Chris Toner is expecting to square off against Cranbourne for the right to play in the MPNFL Casey Cardinia League grand final. The Magpies were officially crowned minor premier on Saturday, courtesy of having a higher percentage than fellow powerhouse Cranbourne. For their efforts the Magpies will have this weekend off and meet the winner of Saturday’s clash between Cranbourne and TooradinDalmore. ‘‘I’d be surprised if Cranbourne didn’t win,’’ Toner said. The Magpies sealed top spot with a 154-point demolition of Keysborough on Saturday without leading goalkicker Kerem Baskaya, Kain Baskaya and Andrew Hunter. Toner confirmed the trio would all be recalled for the Magpies’ first final, with none of their ailments serious. He said the Magpies would have several solid sessions over the next fortnight. ‘‘I’ll go and watch both games over the weekend — the players probably won’t. ‘‘We’ve got some solid sessions planned and then we’ll probably give them the weekend off.’’ He was buoyed by the strong form of Andy Soumilas, Michael Collins and Colin McNamara with their drive from the midfield crucial in the demolition of the Burra. The huge 27.25 (187) to 5.3 (33) win was set up by 19 goals in the second half, Lee Boyle and Aaron McIver both booting three majors while Justin Marriott was a handful across half-forward. The Burras’ Shaun Witherden tried hard but lacked support as the bigger and more experienced Magpies ran riot. In other games, Cranbourne tuned up for its finals campaign with an 82-point demolition of Doveton at Robinson Oval on Saturday. Cranbourne coach Doug Koop said the Eagles

FINALSDRAW CASEY CARDINIA LEAGUE FINALS Saturday at Doveton: Qualifying Finals Seniors: Cranbourne v Tooradin-Dalmore, 2.15pm Reserves: Berwick v Cranbourne, 12.15pm Seniors at Pakenham: Beaconsfield v Berwick, 2.15pm Reserves: ROC v Beaconsfield, 12.15pm.

Key player: Tooradin’s Matt Wade pumps the ball forward in their victory over Pakenham on Saturday. He looms as a key player in the MPNFL Casey Cardinia League finals series. Picture: Gary Sissons would not be taking Tooradin-Dalmore lightly. ‘‘They have certainly improved from last year and have quite a bit of experience through the lines,’’ he said. ‘‘They have clearly been the next best side [behind Narre Warren and Cranbourne]. ‘‘Our boys will have to play very well to get over the top of them.’’ Cranbourne’s inaccuracy in the 18.18 (126) to 6.8 (44) victory was the only thing that stopped the margin blowing out to triple figures. Champion goalkicker Marc Holt booted 7.5 to take his season tally to 130 from just 14 matches

and seal the league goalkicking award. Holt’s latest haul of goals came despite the full forward sitting off a quarter with a minor leg ailment. ‘‘He sat a quarter off but then he went back on and just marked very well,’’ Koop said. ‘‘It shows the quality of him when they have two blokes on him from the start and he still kicks seven.’’ Cranbourne began the match slowly and trailed by seven points at the opening change, but the machine clicked into gear soon after the first change. Ryan Davey won numerous possessions and Justin Berry’s polish and disposal was first rate in tough conditions. He finished with four majors. For Doveton, Adam Dean and Jake Mullen tried hard but Cranbourne’s sheer number of match winners proved too much. In other games, Berwick youngster Jordan Andrews booted 10 goals to spearhead his team to a 168-point win over Hampton Park. Nathan Waite booted eight goals. Beaconsfield had a hard-fought 25-point win over ROC to prepare for its elimination final against Berwick, with Chris Kelf and Jake Aarts both starring. Tooradin-Dalmore showed it is in form with a 105-point demolition of Pakenham. ■ For more MPNFL photos, visit caseyweeklycranbourne.com.au.

Comets get reprieve with win over Diamond Valley CASEY Comets cleared a critical hurdle in their quest to avoid relegation with a 1-0 victory over Diamond Valley at Comets Stadium yesterday. The Comets are now out of the FFV state league 2 south east relegation zone but must finish the season strongly or the consequences could be dire. Comets coach Joe De Martino said there was a healthy feeling around the club after a fruitful month. ‘‘It was an important one for us. If you focus on our last five games, having picked up 10 points in five weeks, it really has given us a new lease of life.’’ The Comets broke the deadlock just seconds before half-time after a promising build-up through the midfield and a cross back to John McEvoy resulted in a goal. McEvoy found himself well in the clear and he

calmly slotted it low and into the corner of the net to give his team some momentum. The Comets have improved markedly in the second half of the season under De Martino’s guidance. He said he had a clear emphasis on defence when he took over the top job midway through the season. ‘‘My first task — as well as bringing unity to the group — was teaching them once again how to defend and defend as a unit. ‘‘Now we’ve got that right and we’ve stopped copping goals excessively.’’ De Martino said his team was beginning to get its attack on track with strikers Hamish Millar and Johnny Negassi working well with Nagus Henry. The Comets’ battle to avoid relegation continues at 3pm on Saturday as they host South Springvale at Comets Stadium. — Brad McGrath

Vic title in the bag for Hallam girls HALLAM Senior College won its third straight School Sport Victoria girls’ football state title at Victoria Park last Wednesday. Hallam beat Mill Park Secondary College and Ballarat High School to claim the title and, in the process, win its 33rd straight game since beginning its elite girls’ football program three years ago. Hallam beat Mill Park by 36 points in their opening game. Then they faced Ballarat in the final, keeping their opponents scoreless in the first half and taking a matchwinning lead to win by 35 points. Roughly half of Hallam’s side has played in all three flags and Hallam coach Brett Alexander praised his players for their achievements. ‘‘When new girls come into the program now we get questions about our success and when I tell parents we have won 33 straight games you realise it’s significance,’’ he said. Hallam was again led by Ellie Blackburn with Danielle Hardiman, Lauren Hutchinson, Cassandra Meads, Brittany Wood, Lauren Hojnacki, Cherie Tamanalevu, Chloe McMillan, Ebony Hobson and Kirsten McLeod consistent performers on the day. Under Alexander, Hallam pioneered its elite girls’ football program three years ago and while their early wins were seen as a ‘‘fait accompli’’, this year’s side faced its toughest test yet. ‘‘Each year the victory margins are getting smaller,’’ he said. ‘‘Some people were saying these matches are a formality for us, but that is never the case and the girls never think that way because if you let your guard down someone will take it.’’ Alexander also said he had spoken at length with teachers from other schools who were interested in setting up their own girls’ football programs. ‘‘They are starting to come on board now.’’ While Hallam will take its imposing record into next year, it will do so without almost half its record-setting side with at least nine players in year 12 this year. Alexander said his side would be much different without this year’s year 12 students, who were the first year level to come into the program when they were in year 10. ‘‘We are losing the girls who have been the mainstays of the side. ‘‘Next year will be different, but that is the challenge of coaching and I’m already looking forward to it.’’ The Hallam College girls will travel to Queensland this coming Sunday to play four leading Queensland schools in a roundrobin on Monday and lead some primary school clinics on Tuesday. — Roy Ward
