Police blitz puts Port Phillip partygoers on notice

WATER TESTED: Senior Constable Christian Airey conducts a breath test

MORE than 150 police will be dispatched around Port Phillip over New Year’s Eve in a bid to crack down on unruly revellers. Police will be out in force in the main entertainment precincts from December 31 and will set up a high visibility command post on the beach, where it is illegal to drink alcohol. The operation is part of a larger blitz over the summer against theft, anti-social behaviour and alcohol-

related offences in Port Phillip. South Melbourne Senior Sergeant Erik Strik said plain-clothes police and mounted and bike unit police would patrol beaches between Port Melbourne and Elwood from December until February. The announcement comes as the latest police statistics reveal a drop in reported crime in Port Phillip in the 12 months to September. The figures, released at the end of November, show reported crime

decreased by more than 6 per cent, bucking the statewide trend of a 5.9 per cent rise, which can be attributed to a 15 per cent drop in property related offences, including burglaries. There was a 13 per cent jump in assaults; drug related offences also rose 14 per cent. Earlier this month the state government introduced new laws which allow police to test boat and jet ski operators for illegal drugs. The new laws also lowered the

blood alcohol limit for commercial and recreational watercraft operators under the age of 21 from 0.05 to zero and introduced increased fines. Fines for not wearing a life jacket or operating a vessel without a licence have also risen to $282 and $704 respectively. Six people died on Victorian waters in 2011–12 andWater Police attended more than 1000 incidents between November 2011 and March 2012. BEAU DONELLY

Lucky escape as Elwood family flees fire bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

FIREFIGHTERS have renewed calls for residents to check their smoke alarms after an early morning Elwood fire nearly ended in tragedy. Ian and Luci Ferenbach and their two children, aged one and three, had a lucky escape when passing police officers saw smoke billowing out of the house. The fire broke out in the kitchen of the Marine Parade townhouse about 3am on November 26. The blaze quickly spread from the kitchen into the ceiling while the family was asleep. Two police officers were driving past and spotted smoke billowing from the top storey of the threelevel house. “We are just so grateful to the police for noticing,” Mr Ferenbach said. “They came in and were very authoritative and got us out. Then the firefighters got there within five

minutes and reacted so quickly. We were fortunate.” Leading senior constable Warren King said he had just finished attending a job in St Kilda and was driving past when he saw the fire. “When we pulled over after seeing the smoke we couldn’t hear any smoke alarms so we jumped the fence and started knocking on the doors,” he said. Metropolitan Fire Brigade commander Rob Dean, who attended the scene after the fire to assess the damage, said the fire should serve as a reminder to residents to check smoke alarm batteries regularly. “In this case the alarm upstairs didn’t work because it had a flat battery and the house was filling up with smoke very quickly,’’ Mr Dean said. ‘‘The trouble with smoke is that you just go into a deeper sleep. This family had a lucky escape.” The damage bill is estimated at more than $100,000.

ecoming a member of the SES in 1994 has allowed me to meet a diverse range of people and personalities from various backgrounds, who all have the same purpose of giving something back to their local community. Volunteering is a feel-good opportunity anyone can do. The longer you stay with a volunteer organisation, the greater the benefits and skills you can acquire. Weekly training is based around essential skills associated with storm damage, which is the key role of suburban SES, but also involves learning safety procedures and practices related to land searches, bushfires, urban and water rescues. I have also been involved with awareness sessions for peer support and local primary schools, where the kids enjoy being able to see firsthand emergency service people and vehicles. Another rewarding aspect of being in the St Kilda area is the many public events that our unit is asked to man, including the Anzac Day dawn service, community days and festivals. Like most volunteer roles, you can give as much time and energy as the moment in life allows you to. However, from my experiences with the St Kilda unit, I find your back will always be covered in a critical situation and that your team will be ultra supportive and thoughtful during and after a callout. The SES is a volunteer organisation that allows you to incorporate your personal life skills while enhancing practical ones you

Experienced long-term members like myself also have the opportunity to undertake more complex training courses and mentoring. However, you must be able to commit, like the colour orange and be willing to attend a call-out page any time and in any weather – usually when it is dark, gusty and wet!

PROFILE JENNI BOND, 59 WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ELSTERNWICK: Except for a 16-month volunteer stint in Tonga, my years have revolved around the area where I have lived, been educated, raised a family and taught health and home economics. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: Streetscapes could be more thoughtfully planted and the nature strip trees pruned so they are not a danger to walkers and power lines.

Open air cinema gone with the wind

SOME BUCKLING: The cinema

HIGH winds forced the organisers of St Kilda’s open air cinema to cancel last Tuesday night’s screening. But Sarah Steel, a spokeswoman for Openair Cinemas, has hit back at suggestions that the screen fell over on Tuesday afternoon, saying it was taken down because of the high winds. ‘‘Due to unusually high winds we are temporarily bringing down the screen in St Kilda as a precautionary measure,’’ Ms Steel said.

‘‘The screen has not fallen over, but the extreme weather conditions have caused some buckling – this is what the structure is designed to do in adverse conditions.’’ She said the screen, located near Jacka Boulevard on the St Kilda foreshore, had been certified by an independent engineer when it was installed. She said it also met all design certification to Australian standards. Ms Steel said Openair Cinemas

was in contact with the Bureau of Meteorology with regards to dangers posed by weather. She maintained the company was equipped to ensure the safety of cinema patrons. ‘‘The St Kilda beach-side site is new to us but we have been on the lawn by the sea in Bondi for two seasons now,’’ she said. ‘‘We are well aware of how best to deal with high winds and customer safety."

Fight to fund flight of Butterfly bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

SOUTH Melbourne cabaret, comedy and kitsch headquarters the Butterf ly Club has launched a crowdfunding campaign to save itself from extinction. Now based at Bank Street, the 13-year-old club is at risk of closing next year unless it can raise enough money to move to a new venue. Owner Simone Pulga has signed a 10-year lease on a cheaper building in Collins Street, but said he was unable to fund the $130,000 cost of relocating and refurbishing the new location when the South Melbourne venue shuts on February 10. “If we can’t refurbish, we can’t move, and if we can’t move we’re out,” he said. Mr Pulga hopes a campaign through crowd-funding website Pozible will help meet some of the shortfall. Since it launched on Monday the campaign has raised more than

$10,600 of its $20,000 target. The Cash For Kitsch campaign encourages supporters to sponsor a piece of Butterfly Club memorabilia. Melbourne’s arts community has rallied behind the campaign. Performers Tim Minchin, Eddie Perfect and Geraldine Quinn have donated rewards, including concert tickets, personalised songs and performances in return for sponsorship. “I am completely blown away by the response so far,” said Mr Pulga. Mr Pulga, who bought the club in January 2011, said he did not renew the Bank Street lease because rent had nearly doubled in a decade. Mr Pulga said if the campaign succeeded, the Butterf ly Club would relaunch in mid-February at 256 Collins Street. The new club would span three levels, providing up to 20 per cent more space for patrons, backstage areas and room for an 80-seat showroom. To pledge, visit pozible.com/ thebutterflyclub.

Party people fined in parking blitz BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

PORT Phillip parking inspectors hit the jackpot last week when they stumbled across 42 parked cars in Elwood breaching parking restrictions. The council issued about $3500 worth of fines near Point Ormond on December 2. The cars were believed to be owned by revellers who attended an outdoor party near the foreshore, which according to partygoers was broken up by police about 9pm.

City of Port Phillip spokeswoman Katie Elles said Point Ormond was part of the normal patrol area for parking inspectors. But she said inspectors issued about twice as many fines as usual during the party, adding that the council was not tipped off by complaints from residents. Point Ormond parking restrictions require drivers to pay for parking from 8am to midnight. A police spokeswoman said the area was a known hotspot for parties, but there was no official

record of police attending the scene on December 2. Ms Elles said there had been a report from one partygoer that their car was stolen from a nearby street in Elwood. “The area gets a lot of traffic and we proactively patrol down there,” she said. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

PERMITS PERMITTING Port Phillip residents are taking to the streets over Christmas with 26 street parties approved by the council for December. Bernard Mandile, who has attracted about 100 people to his Ashworth Street, Albert Park party each year for the past six years, said the process couldn’t be easier. “You just get permission from the majority of your neighbours, sign a form and pay the fee,” he said. The $50 council fee covers a police check and insurance.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ LET’S LET THE DOGS OUT Some in the community have expressed concerns about the trial allowing dog-off-leash access after 7.30pm at Middle Park beach (‘‘Control your dogs’’ letters, RL, November 28). Given dogs are banned from nearly all beaches over summer, the problem of having to fend off dogs at the beach is easily avoided. Don’t use the dog-off-leash beach! The trial allowing night access, when the beach is usually deserted, is welcome news for dog owners especially given the loss of the Albert Park off-leash area because of grand prix works. Colin MacEwan / Middle Park ■ CLEAN UP YOUR ACT Since moving to live and work in the wonderful area that is Port Phillip 16 years ago, I am becoming increasingly frustrated at many aspects of human nature, particularly the lack of regard for our environment (‘‘Rubbish acts go unpunished’’, RL, November 28).

Council is in a privileged position to lead the way and indeed is to be commended on its many innovative programs, but street cleaning is not one. The council seems happy to allow debris to collect, and grounds maintenance operatives to sweep or blow debris into the gutter as it takes too much time, effort or cost to remove off site and dispose of reliably. Being involved with initiative to bring forward a planned approach to future inevitable high rainfall incidents gives me a great insight into the cumulative effect of not attending to the grassroots. Anna Howard / via email

■ ODE TO A SIMPLER TIME I love milk bars (‘‘Sweet memories’’, RL, November 28). I remember in the late ’60s and ’70s as a teenager buying Sunny Boys and firecrackers in the one go when I was growing up in Keon Park. Twenty cents could buy you the world then. Some of these milk bars had the PMG red phone boxes outside of them, there were no mobile phones

or computers, just old-fashioned cash registers. Let’s not forget the local fish ‘n’ chip shop as well. A simpler happier time, that’s how I see it. Robert Aquilina / via website

QUOTABLE THE TRIAL ALLOWING NIGHT ACCESS, WHEN THE BEACH IS USUALLY DESERTED, IS WELCOME NEWS FOR DOG OWNERS Colin MacEwan / Middle Park

● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

■ CHRISTMAS IS MURDER Christmas is bearing down with all its presumptions of goodwill. We might even be ‘‘merry’’ if 100 million animals weren’t being sacrificed for this religious celebration. Is it a religious celebration? Or is it a business celebration? Either way, Santa’s blood red suit seems grimly appropriate. Lawrence Pope / Victorian Advocates for Animals ■ WHY THE LATE CHECK OUT? I am confused, why does it take so long to shut an illegal backpackers’ hostel (‘‘Illegal hostel to shut in April’’, RL, December 5)? This process should take no more than a month. The neighbours have suffered enough. Shona / via email

HIT THE GROUND DANCING Elwood dancer and choreographer ETIENNE KHOO wants to open a studio to help street kids find their feet

E

THE RIGHT MOVES: Life is all about dance for Etienne Khoo

tienne Khoo grew up dancing on the streets of Penang in Malaysia, unable to afford classes, let alone dream of dancing with the stars. Now he’s made prime-time TV, having choreographed two seasons of So You Think You Can Dance, and is in hot demand from dance academies in Australia and Asia. Khoo is artistic director of his hip hop crew Dance Virus Productions; he won the Australian Hip Hop Championships two years in a row and represented Australia in San Diego in 2009, taking fifth place in the world. On his return, he was commissioned by Australian Teachers of Dancing to create Australia’s most comprehensive hip hop syllabus to train teachers and students around the world. Yet it is an email from a police sergeant in Tasmania that is

Ministry of Dance and schools in Ballarat, Brisbane and Hobart. The next step is to open a studio for street kids.‘‘I want to be able to give street kids the chance to express themselves. It will be called O2, for oxygen; to dance, breathe, live, all of that. I want to make people laugh, make people smile.’’

uppermost in his mind when we meet at a beachside cafe. ‘‘It’s about one of the kids with a criminal record,” he says.“He wants me to talk to the kid about my background to give him hope through dancing.’’ Khoo knows what a big difference support can make. He was 19 and aimless when he was invited to Melbourne by his uncle Kim Un, owner of Shakahari restaurants in Carlton and South Melbourne and the Isthmus of Kra. Un put him to work in the kitchen and sent him to auditions. Khoo got into a three-year course at the Dance Factory to study jazz, tap and ballet to supplement his hip hop techniques and was soon cruising the world as a dancer and choreographing music videos for international bands. It has led to teaching gigs at the VCA,The Space in Chapel Street, Jason Coleman’s

second, longer meditation. Falling under the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, the New Kadampa Tradition focuses on teachings for the masses rather than for monks, and integrating Buddhist teachings into everyday life.Today’s class, part of the Everyday Happiness block, focuses on giving.

The verdict Swap monk Gen Kelsang Dornying’s orange robes for jeans and a T-shirt and you’d be forgiven for mistaking this for a stand-up show. He is engaging, lighthearted and humorous. The teachings may reference scholarly texts but his personal anecdotes are what makes them palatable and relevant. If such a class can help fill the dearth of philosophical offerings in our lives and assist with attaining contentment, I’ll try to make it a regular part of my life.

elbourne Zoo has changed a great deal over the years – and now it is out to change the perception that visiting the zoo is just for kids and families. I, Animal is an interactive multimedia tour for adults that takes place in the zoo grounds at night. Visitors choose one of four tours, don earphones and plug into an electronic device called the ‘‘Zoe’’ to explore the zoo via a part-audio, part-interactive screen tour. Zoe relates interesting animal facts and reveals entertaining episodes from the zoo’s 150-year history, inviting people to reflect on their lives in comparison with those of the animals. The audience is invited to participate by acting out animal behaviour, a component that draws on the experience of the project’s collaborator, contemporary performance ensemble The Border Project, which created the temporary installation I Am Not An Animal at Adelaide Zoo last March. “The challenge was to create a similar immersive experience, but robust enough to stand the test of time,” says Dan Koerner, the director of I, Animal along with Sam Haren at The Border Project. “Each of the four loops that the audience can follow has a narrative around how we identify ourselves as humans. “We really wanted to design

an experience for the audience that gave them space away from the rat race to stop and reflect on who they are, what has happened in their lives and where they are going.” While some tales in I, Animal amuse – did you know the zoo did an official search for a bunyip in 1890 and even had an enclosure ready? – Zoe also delves into topics such as death and fear, and poses philosophical questions about our origins and future. “We felt that it was important for audience members to reflect on the human race as a whole,” says Koerner. “This directly concerns our evolution as a species and what might come next for us. What distinguishes us from the animals we share the planet with and what might come next for us as a species?” Koerner hopes the experience will inspire a less traditional demographic to visit and view animals in a new light. “We hope that I, Animal audiences come away feeling uplifted and that their perceptions of themselves, their place in the animal kingdom and their experience of the Melbourne Zoo have shifted in some way,” he says. “Above all, though, we hope visitors recognise the fragility of life on Earth – particularly those we share this planet with.” LEEYONG SOO

olo was the attraction at Albert Park this month – 138 years after the first game at Sydney’s Moore Park and 2600 or so years after the first ever recorded polo tussle between the Persians and the Turkomans. It’s hard to say what the welldressed punters loved more: the chukkas on field or the champers off it. One thing’s for sure, expect the Paspaley Polo in the City phenomenon to return.

Hugo Murphy, Quentin Jones and Tim Morris confessed to planning carefully their polo attire. “What’s the whitest white I have?” Morris pondered for days. Unlike many, Deb Rogan watched every moment of the on-field action. “I love polo,” she enthused. “The atmosphere, the champagne, it’s wonderful.”

I am really looking forward to Christmas. I have written (with Mum’s help) a list of what I would like for Christmas. My wish list: Fury-class Sith Interceptor Lego, a Nerf Gun, Lego Imperial Shuttle and Lego Epic Dragon Battle. I promise to be really, really good between now and Christmas.

I want a Doll House, Doll’s, Barbies, a Barbie House, the 3-in-1 Doll thing, a toy dog on a leash with buttons, Hermione stuff and the motorcycle on T.V. My sister Madelaine would like a tent, a chair and an electric toothbrush. Love Estelle and Madelaine

Dan finds just how tough it can be at the top BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au WHAT do you do when Tough Mudder simply isn’t tough enough? If you’re Dan Bennett, you do the World’s Toughest Mudder. Bennett, from Port Melbourne, recently arrived back from New Jersey, where he competed in the aptly-named event. It takes the top 5 per cent of finishers from Tough Mudders around the world and ups the ante significantly. The Tough Mudder events, started in 2010, pit teams of participants against each other in overcoming 18-20 kilometre obstacle courses that require competitors to navigate barbed wire, 10,000 volts of electricity and tonne after tonne of mud and icy cold water. The World’s Toughest Mudder includes all the obstacles found in a normal event – but it runs for 24 hours. Participants must complete as many laps as they can.

Bennett, 29, qualified for the event at the Tough Mudder on Phillip Island in March. He completed five laps in the 24 hours, finishing 75th of more than 1000 entrants. Bennett says the weather prevented him obtaining from a better result. “Time and distance weren’t an issue – I was prepared for that,” he says. “But it got down to about minus four degrees, and you’re in icy water on top of that. ‘‘I raced from 10am until about 11pm and then had to stop. It took me more than four hours to stop shivering. If I’d kept going, I’d have had to go to hospital with hypothermia.” Bennett, who trains elephants at Melbourne Zoo, is determined to go better next year. “I’m happy to race in the colder temperatures – I just need heavier equipment, like a 5 millimetre or 7 millimetre wetsuit,” he says. “Mentally and fitness-wise, I was

fine to keep going but my body just wasn’t warm enough.” Of the obstacles, he found Hangin’ Tough – gymnast rings suspended over a mud-pit the hardest. ‘‘I struggled with that because the handles get muddy and your arms are fatiguing,” he said. But despite the pain, fatigue and cold temperatures, Bennett says the World’s Toughest Mudder is one of the best challenges he has faced. “Everyone suffers the same so you help each other along,” he says. ‘‘There’s a great sense of camaraderie. It’s hard to describe what goes through your head. ‘‘I’m quite stubborn, so I’d probably fight anything that came in my way to try to stop me.” ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

The Students made 8/233 after starting the day at University Oval with a 122-run opening stand between Jarrod Leggett (53) and Tom Polkinghorne (84). And although no other batsman could make a half-century, the partnership gave the innings a strong foundation. Lachlan Graf (2-51) broke the partnership when he had Leggett out LBW and from there University lost 8-97 as the Saints probed their way through the batting. Polkinghorne’s stay of almost four hours came to an end with the score at 160 when he was caught off the bowling of leg-spinner James Muirhead, who toiled throughout the day with 2-92 from his marathon 33 overs. Aside from the openers, Ben Fletcher’s 22 was the next best for University, while St Kilda’s Daniel Forbes came on late in the afternoon and finished with 2-33 from 10 overs. MELBOURNE will resume on this Saturday at 0/11 after bowling out Ringwood for 231. Dan Worrall (5-57) and Brenton

OUT ON THE FULL: St Kilda’s Reggie McGuinness hits Melbourne paceman Jack Paynter for six in the T20 clash McDonald (4-46) were heroic for the Demons in 43.4 tight overs. MEANWHILE, Melbourne won the Twenty20 clash against St Kilda at the Albert Ground last Wednesday by 10 wickets. The Saints won the toss and elected to bat first but were never able

to get on top of the Demons’ attack. Peter Handscomb (32 off 32), Andrew McGuinness (39 off 39) and skipper Graeme Rummans (33 off 33) were the top three. But after them the next best score was a paltry seven as St Kilda finished on 8/129 from its 20 overs. Alex Keath took an 2-11 off three

with the ball for Melbourne and Sean Sturrock grabbed 2-24. In reply, Melbourne needed just 16.4 overs to chase down the total without the loss of a wicket. Openers Andrew Kent (64 off 51) and Matthew Brown (51 off 46) picked apart the bowlers to make light work of the target.

PORT Melbourne romped to an easy victory over Heatherton in the South Division of the VTCA on Saturday, a win built on the back of Matt Daykin’s century the previous weekend. Daykin has been in prolific form since a rare king pair against Chelsea in the first game of the season. His 129 not out against Heatherton – his third straight century – was his highest of the season and he now has 351 runs at an average of 87.8. Port Melbourne is yet to lose when he makes a ton. Daykin and young batsman Jack Boardman (61) added 124 for the

■ SECONDS’ BIG CHASE St Kilda’s second XI will need almost 300 to beat Melbourne University on day two of the Sub District match on Saturday. University reached 8/292, with Des O’Sullivan (3-82) the pick of the bowlers for St Kilda and Blade Baxter picking up 2-34.

third wicket to put Port Melbourne in a strong position. Opener Mark Towson (38) also worked hard on a f lat wicket but slow outfield as Port posted 5/274 on the first day. Heatherton scrimped its way to a lowly 118 in reply as Adnan Khawaja bowled unchanged for 26 overs into the wind for the remarkable figures of 6-33 with 11 maidens. Only a couple of dropped catches preventing superhuman figures. Khawaja was well supported by miserly opening bowler Josh Boyle, who sent down eight overs for just three runs, taking two wickets in the process.

David Dervan (32) and Leon McConnell (24) both got starts for Heatherton but could not convert it to anything concrete. Port went in for some more batting practice in the second innings, making 6/70 with Daykin and captain-wicketkeeper James Cole sitting out. An embarrassing first-innings total of 45 meant Port Melbourne’s second XI lost on first innings to Heatherton’s 113. Needing 229 for an unlikely reverse outright, Port stumbled to 3/85 as the game petered out. But it wasn’t all gloom for the seconds, with Justin Snow taking

the impressive match figures of 13-82, which included a hat-trick in Heatherton’s second innings. Port Melbourne will now play a two-day match against Brighton District before heading into the break over Christmas. Brighton, currently top of the table after an outright victory over Moorabbin Park, will prove a tough prospect for Port Melbourne as its bowling attack has been extremely effective so far thisseason. Three of the top four wickettakers in the competition are from Brighton, including George Bacon, who has 27 wickets from four games at an average of 10.07.

■ HONOR FOR JODIE Collegians physiotherapist Jodie Porter has won the VAFA’s Trainer of the Year award for 2012.

Port Melbourne went down 11-4 to lose for only the second time this season. ■ SO CLOSE FOR ST KILDA St Kilda stayed in touch with the top four in the men’s Victorian Summer League baseball series despite a 4-3 loss to Fitzroy on Saturday. The Saints are sitting fifth on the ladder with a 6-4 record.
