Alarm over roadside slashing BY ANGELA VALENTE MACEDON Ranges Council has slammed VicRoads’ new fire prevention methods saying the move has exposed the shire to a greater fire risk. VicRoads has changed its roadside slashing program, which critics say will reduce fire breaks on the sides of major roads in the Macedon Ranges, including the MelbourneLancefield Road and Calder Freeway. The new model has reduced funding available to northern region councils by more than $100,000. Northern region incorporates the Macedon Ranges and Mt Alexander shires, as well as five other municipalities stretching as far as Swan Hill. Last week, the council contacted Premier Ted Baillieu and ministers, expressing “profound disappointment� in the reduction of roadside

slashing carried out by the road authority. This new approach, known as the Terra Matrix Model, was born out of the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Royal Commission and comes at a time when the state is dealing with numerous grass fires. The ‘model’ determines where grass should be slashed and ranks roadside vegetation as at high, low or medium fire risk. VicRoads regional director Mal Kersting said the program formed part of the Road Bushfire Risk Assessment Guidelines 2011 and was developed with the CFA, Department of Sustainability and Environment, and Municipal Association of Victoria. ‘‘Over 60 workshops were run across Victoria in 2012 and included representatives from councils, CFA and DSE to validate the mapping,’’ he said. ‘‘VicRoads was then able to develop work plans to reduce the risk of fires igniting and

spreading from and within road reserves.’’ Cr Russell Mowatt said the Calder Freeway and Melbourne-Lancefield Road would no longer be slashed from fence to fence. “This is a regional approach by VicRoads rather than viewing our shire as an exception to the rule given our history of bushfires,’’ he said. “There will now be roadside burn-offs as opposed to the traditional mowing and slashing.’’ Cr Mowatt said scaling down the funding left Macedon Ranges short. “We want the same level of roadside slashing as VicRoads has done in the past because it’s mitigated the risk; it’s kept the bushfire risk down. Low fuel loading gives the CFA time to respond to those roadside fires. It’s poor timing to put something like this in place in mid-summer. It defies logic and, in my opinion, exposes our shire to greater fire risk.�

Organisers of the Daylesford Macedon Ranges Open Studios, which brought more than 3500 visitors on an arts trail last year, is calling for entries for the November event. A total of 30 artists took part in the six-day art tour last November. Visitors have the chance to go behind the scenes of the creative process, meet artists in their studios and learn about art and the inspiration behind their work. Details: dmropenstudios.com.au or call Jill Rivers on 0418 389 189 or Anthony Clarke on 5427 1718.

Ban after creek water level drops Southern Rural Water has announced a ban on taking water from Turitable and Willimigongon creeks in Mount Macedon. Under the restrictions, water must not be pumped or diverted for the irrigation or watering of lawns, gardens or pasture. Groundwater and rivers general manager Craig Parker said the ban — not seen since January 2010 — was necessary because of rapidly dropping water levels in both creeks. ‘‘A total ban is our last course of action, but both these creeks are severely depleted.’’ The ban includes tributaries of the creeks and will remain in place until midnight on June 30. Details: Southern Rural Water, 1300 139 510.

Tapping into green ideas Young McEwen residents are being encouraged to nominate environmental ideas for the Green Army Projects. About 15,000 young Australians in teams of up to 10 people, including a coordinator, will tackle local environmental projects, with each project allocated up to 25 weeks to complete. Ideas to: Ben.Collier@vic.liberal.org.au

ORGANISERS say next month’s Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival will boast new products and technology to help people reduce their carbon footprint. Giselle Wilkinson, a social innovator, and Philip Sutton, manager of not-for-profit Research and Strategy for Transition Initiation, will be special guest speakers. There will be about 50 exhibitors showing products for renewable energy, energy efficiency and green building practices. Information on recycling, local consumption and ethical purchasing will also be available. Festival co-ordinator Alastair Fleming said Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group’s permaculture garden would be open for inspection. There will be children’s activities including making mini worm farms or handmade paper and entertainment by several local artists. The festival is from 10am-4pm on Saturday, February 9, at the back of the Woodend Neighbourhood House in Forest Street. More details: mrsgonline.org.au.

Homestead subdivision hits wall again BY TARA MURRAY HERITAGE Victoria has knocked back the latest application to subdivide the heritage-listed Emu Bottom Homestead. As reported in the Weekly on November 5, the owners of the property submitted an application to Hume Council to have the property subdivided into three parts — the homestead and two one-hectare blocks. Any plans to subdivide the property also need to be approved by Heritage Victoria. On January 10, Heritage Victoria denied the approval of a revised application to subdivide,

permitting only a previous application to subdivide the property. In 2008, the council issued a permit for the property to be subdivided into six lots — five one-hectare blocks and the homestead, which Heritage Victoria also approved. In 2009, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal overturned the council’s decision, granting the applicants a permit for only three one-hectare blocks and the homestead. Owners Hedley Elliott and his wife Janet bought the property in 1968. Mr Elliott said they were yet to decide on whether to appeal against the latest decision.

He said a decision would be made once the council had made its ruling on the application it had before it. The National Trust of Australia (Victoria) senior manager of advocacy and conservation Paul Roser welcomed the decision by Heritage Victoria. ‘‘The National Trust has a long-standing interest in Emu Bottom, and an equally longstanding relationship with the Elliotts going back to 1968. ‘‘The Elliotts were visionary in avoiding the dry-as-dust house museum model, instead preferring a working heritage farm, and it successfully

attracted thousands of visitors,’’ Mr Roser said. ‘‘It is a sensible decision to align the permitted subdivision to that determined by VCAT in 2009 to only allow four blocks, one of which is the homestead remaining on about 23 hectares, and another the owners’ pre-existing residence. ‘‘It deletes the proposed blocks around the entrance. ‘‘Heritage Victoria has therefore stepped back from its 2008 decision to allow six blocks, which is great news. ‘‘A covenant is also required which will ensure a schedule of conservation works is undertaken in a specified time.’’

Dollars and sense: frugal MP’s right on the money McEWEN MP Rob Mitchell has claimed the lowest in expenses and entitlements than any other Victorian federal MP in the six months to June 2012. Figures from the Department of Finance and Deregulation show that Mr Mitchell claimed a total of $96,289.66. He also claimed a further $5149 in expenses from the previous year. Mr Mitchell said he tried to be at the lower end of the scale on expenditure and entitlement claims. ‘‘I have a general rule that I like to be in the bottom half of the spending by politicians. ‘‘We have a temporary office, so most of the furniture is secondhand and we don’t have a lot of equipment. ‘‘We also have a lot of stuff, like stationery left over from other departments, and that other MPs have had. ‘‘We don’t care if it’s not brand new and in boxes.’’ Mr Mitchell’s claims were among the lowest of all federal members of both houses of Parliament. The claims relate to travelling allowance, over-

Mr Mitchell spent more than $25,000 on office facilities and about $23,000 on office administrative costs, including printing and communications. Claims included more than $11,100 on travel allowance and more than $13,100 on domestic airfares. He claimed $321.30 on overseas travel. Mr

Racing club hopes it’s third time lucky BY ANGELA VALENTE RACING will return to Hanging Rock this Saturday for the first Australia Day race meeting held at the Rock in three years. The traditional New Year’s Day race meeting went ahead at Hanging Rock this month without any hiccups. Last year the club battled a run of bad luck, with its two race meetings for the year on January 1 and 26 cancelled after holes were discovered under the track. In 2011 racing on Australia Day was abandoned after kangaroos invaded the track. The Kyneton and Hanging Rock Racing Club chief executive Mark Graham is confident it will be “smooth sailing” towards this Saturday’s race. “It is full steam ahead,” he told the Weekly. “We had a very successful New Year’s Day race with a crowd of 5188 and we’re very happy with that, considering the issues we’ve faced the past two years, issues that were

beyond the club’s control. To get a crowd of that size was incredible. “People love going to the races at Hanging Rock and they won’t allow the last couple of setbacks to interfere with their rituals.” Graham says the track is in good order and hopes for a crowd of about 5500. ‘‘I’ve had feedback from the jockeys on New Year’s Day and they’ve said the condition of the track was very good to outstanding.” The NMIT Hanging Rock Cup winner will walk away with $15,000 in prizemoney. The meeting boasts a seven-race card, kicking off at 1.04pm, with the last race at 5.04pm. Kyneton’s Taylor Sheridan and his band will perform on the day. Gates open at 10am.

SUNBURY & MACEDON RANGES WEEKLY 7


INSIDESTORY

Fun in a warehouse of gore It seems society has moved on from simpler times when people played Monopoly and Connect Four to be entertained. need a more realistic approach, where we run, chase and shoot. STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN learns more about present-day ou would be forgiven for driving past the old ‘Hard Yakka’ building, hidden in a quiet residential pocket of Broadmeadows, and thinking nothing of it. But dare to go inside and you’ll be introduced to a world of real-life zombies who seek to annihilate anyone who gets in their way. And it’s your job to destroy them. Residing in the building is the genius creation of Patient 0: a real-life, multiplayer, first-person shooter, role-playing game. The warehouse rooms are ‘‘gored up’’ with blood-spattered walls and prosthetic bodies, waiting for eager ‘shooters’ to have some fun. The concept was dreamed up over after-work beers and pizzas by three friends last March. By October 31 their dream had become a reality, and so had their company IRL Shooter (In Real Life). One of the creators, David Leadbetter, says the game of ‘glorified laser tag’ has people from across Melbourne, Australia and even overseas, intrigued. It’s a simple concept. You’re in a team of six shooters and have a mission to complete in just over an hour. The obstacle is the zombies who will get in the way as players progress through three massive warehouse-style rooms. The shooters need to do just that: shoot the zombies with their laser guns to eradicate them. More than 100 professional actors have been hired in these flesh-eating zombie roles, to scare, obstruct and thrill whoever comes into contact with them. ‘‘The players take a very definite path and then there’s all these hidden doors for our zombie cast to move through,’’ Leadbetter says. ‘‘A lot of the actors are physically trained and theatre-trained or they are circus performers. ‘‘One of them does this incredible ‘crab walk’, very exorcist like, so that’s really creepy. ‘‘They’re very physical. They absolutely destroy their costumes.’’ While it sounds scary and confronting, the whole operation is extremely safe. The entire warehouse is covered with CCTV cameras, so staff can watch the moves of all players, ensuring safe and sensible conduct throughout the course of the game. ‘‘We can follow the teams as they progress through the course, so we can see what they’re doing, so that’s for their safety and security and also for our cast, ’’ Leadbetter says. ‘‘Because of the cameras we can play with them a little bit. If a team is going too fast we’ll probably throw more zombies at them to slow them down, or if they’re too slow we’ll make it easier for them to go through.’’ With zombies in costume and painted in

dramatic make-up, there’s bound to be a few scares along the way. Leadbetter says some players even ask to be taken out of the game because the scare factor is too high. ‘‘When it’s filled with smoke and the cast are hiding behind the curtains or the rubber doors, the players come in and then somebody will

burst out behind them. We get some good scares. ‘‘The first game we play with ‘babies’ is ‘peek-a-boo’. They get that shock and then they laugh. ‘‘It’s natural and it’s inherent for us as humans to have controlled scares, because we scream and then we laugh.

‘‘Really that’s what we’re providing, a grownup version of that.’’ Leadbetter says players vary in age and sex and are not just the stereotypical ‘nerd’. But over in Ballan, Daniel Cumming, the owner of Paintball Games, admits 80 per cent of his customers are nerds.


blimey Nowadays we adrenaline-seeking games. ‘‘When we started operation in 1993 we were constantly fighting the perception that we were ‘right-wing military nuts’ wanting to overthrow the government,’’ he says. ‘‘We’re running around the bush dressed in camouflage, playing military-style games. In actual fact, we’re a pack of nerds running around playing games, shooting at each other with round little balls that break paint on us.’’ At the 36-hectare property, with a backdrop of beautiful bush, paintballers have a range of scenarios to choose from for their game. Like shooting zombies, it’s a similar concept when it comes to paintballing: attack and defend. Groups can range from four players to 150 and paintballers are split into two groups, with the main aim of the game to capture the flag of the other team. The other aim is not to get shot. Once you’re shot, you’re out of that game and are escorted to a

‘This, to be quite honest, is as close to cowboys and indians as you’ll get. And it’s as simple as that.’ — Daniel Cumming waiting area until the next games starts. Each game goes for about 15 minutes and a session will last up to three hours. A referee watches all games closely to ensure fairness and safety. Cumming says the game definitely attracts the thrill-seekers and adrenalin junkies. ‘‘This, to be quite honest, is as close to cowboys and indians as you’ll get. And it’s as simple as that. ‘‘By nature we’re hunters and gatherers. We can’t just switch off 100 generations of hunting skills. We need to get out and have that little bit of thrill. ‘‘It’s the same thing when people ask ‘what’s the mystique about all these first person shooting games?’ It’s that fantasy. ‘‘Here they can come out and hunt and nobody gets hurt, no animals get killed and they have the opportunity to just have fun.’’ One of the biggest concerns players have, according to Cumming, is fear of the pain that will be caused by the tiny paintball when it hits. ‘‘The minimum shooting distance is six to eight metres. If you shoot within that distance it will sting. But what happens is, people find it doesn’t hurt as much as everybody says, so they become

By the end of the day half of them have lost their fear of the gun, so all they want to do is shoot each other from one to two metres away and that’s like hitting each other with sticks. ‘‘From that close you’re going to hurt each other.’’ And while there haven’t been any major injuries in the time that Cumming has operated the site, he

says a certain amount of confidence grows in players as they progress through a day of paintballing. ‘‘They’ll start feeling more adventurous, so we’ll give them the option of playing ‘attack and defend’. So one team has to protect their fort, the others eliminate opponents and take the flag. ‘‘Some people get more aggressive as they go on because they find out it doesn’t hurt as much as everyone says, so they want to get closer and play tighter.’’

Friendly game just for ladies Once the school year kicks off, the newly renovated Boardman Stadium in Sunbury will echo with the sound of badminton racquets popping shuttles over nets as ladies from 20 to 70-plus years of age gather for friendly games. Secretary of Sunbury Ladies Badminton, Siobhan McGrory, says the game is fantastic, at both social and competitive levels. ‘‘Our club has been around for 35 years now and has developed an emphasis on the social aspect rather than merely being competitive and smashing the shuttle,’’ she says. ‘‘We meet a real need in providing a club that caters for women and their children, welcoming players of all ages and experience levels.’’ Siobhan explains that badminton is a fast game, a great way to stay fit and healthy, and can be played regardless of weather conditions. ‘‘Our oldest team member is 72 and we include beginners and those who have played at state level. In fact, successive generations are coming through, with daughters now playing with their mums. And we have a supervised play corner so mums with pre-schoolers can have a morning of games and exercise knowing their children are also having a fun-filled time.’’ The club offers a friendly environment with no ongoing commitment to play. Casual sessions cost $8, coaching sessions and round robins are occasionally available, and graded competitive games take place each Thursday morning (weekly commitment required, but emergency players are available). Sunbury Ladies Badminton can be contacted on 0419 965 887 or visit sunburyladiesbadminton.sportingpulse.net.au

Residents lose flats fight in VCAT ruling BY TARA MURRAY THE Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has overturned Hume Council’s decision not to issue a permit for six double-storey units in Aitken Street Sunbury. As reported in the Weekly on March 5 last year, the council refused to issue a permit for the units after a number of complaints from residents in surrounding streets. Cr Jack Ogilvie was one of the councillors to vote against the proposal, citing ‘‘this development is not in the character of the neighbourhood’’. The council had received 32 objections from residents for the proposed development between Brook and Station streets. On December 7, VCAT overturned the decision and granted the permit to build the units. Hume Council city sustainability director Kelvin Walsh said the ‘‘council is disappointed that VCAT did not support the original decision regarding 38-40 Aitken Street, Sunbury.’’ He said the council would not appeal against the decision.

‘Council is disappointed that VCAT did not support the original decision regarding 38-40 Aitken Street, Sunbury’ - Kelvin Walsh Residents who were originally pleased with the council’s original decision were disappointed with VCAT’s ruling. They agreed with Cr Ogilvie that the units would be out of character with the neighbourhood. The residents said they didn’t wish to comment further on the issue, but said they had exhausted all feasible avenues in trying to fight the development and wouldn’t be taking it any further. The owners of the property decided to take the decision to VCAT on the basis that the proposal appropriately responded to the character of the area and it was not an overdevelopment. The Weekly contacted the project designer, who said those involved in the project didn’t want to make any comment.

Stars in eyes, wings on feet hildren who want to dance like Angelina Ballerina can do so at Steps Studios in Kyneton, Gisborne and Macedon. This year, Steps will be the Angelina Ballerina Academy for the Macedon Ranges, holding beginner ballet classes for three- to six-year-olds. ‘‘The popular dance program, based on the hit TV show and books, introduces children to dance in a fun and imaginative way,’’ owner and dance instructor Rachelle Kellett says. ‘‘The classes are not about perfection at that age but developing creativity and a passion for music and movement.’’ Classes include dance instructions with Angelina’s voice and activities themed around the franchise. And students can meet Angelina when she visits the studios annually. ‘‘The classes are a foundation for students wanting to take their dance education to the next level,’’ Rachelle says. Students who have done just that include Madison Lu, 8, who recently made her professional theatre debut as Molly in the Melbourne production of Annie. ‘‘After dancing through auditions with

If you’re in two minds, leave early. The best way to prepare for this fire season is to stay informed and plan to leave early, before you see smoke or fire.

The implication is that these properties will not get sold. But is that true? The real truth is that more than 90

Plan to leave early:

per cent of properties that are listed for sale by auction are sold either before, at, or soon after the auction

ü Talk to everyone you live with so you all know when you’re going to leave and where you’re going to go if a fire starts. ü Pack a relocation kit with important documents and essential items. ü On high-risk days, check Fire Danger Ratings and fire warnings on the CFA website and listen to local radio.

date. The reason for this is the intense marketing campaign and interest raised by auctions. Often vendors are approached prior to an auction and given submitted offers. Many times the auction then gets cancelled by a prior sale. Another time sales occur is on the day following the passing in of a property. At that time buyers can approach the vendor with their own offers. Again, many sales occur at this time. Then there are buyers who wait for an auction to occur before submitting their offers. Sometimes buyers just do not want to engage in the auction process itself, but still like the property and will present an offer after auction.

Don’t wait and hope for the best. Visit the CFA website to find out how you can be FireReady.

The auction process also creates lots of interest. People want to know what the market is doing. This also works in your favour, as more people then become aware of the property itself. The main thing is to be realistic about the price if your property does get passed in. In doing so, you can save additional advertising costs while taking advantage of all the interest raised.

ADVERTISERS PLEASENOTE Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns. Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities. Placing misleading advertisements is an offence against the Competition and Consumer Act and all advertisements are subject to the publisher's approval. For further advice contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on 9290 1800. Whilst Metro Media Publishing make every attempt to screen job advertisements, WE DO NOT ACCEPT LIABILIT Y FOR ADVERTISERS WHO FAIL TO C O M P LY W I T H T H E S E REGULATIONS.

MOTORING ●

Italian machine that’s all about style Ewan Kennedy road tests the Alfa Romeo Giulietta lfa Romeo went all German for a while with its model names, using boring numbers instead of proper names. That aberration is a thing of the past and we have just spent a most enjoyable week road testing an Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The car is all about style, particularly at the front where the bonnet flows upwards from the Alfa-shield grille. The five-door hatchback has been styled to look like a sports coupe thanks to cleverly hidden rear door handles. The result is a sporting look that hides what is, in reality, a practical family hatch. The Giulietta’s interior is reasonably spacious, although there are some compromises. Unless tall front-seat occupants are willing to give up some legroom, those in the back seats will find themselves cramped. Headroom can also be tight for tall, rear seat passengers. Although the Giulietta is configured as a fiveseater, in the real world it is better suited to four, with an adult using the middle of the rear seat only in emergency situations. With no fifth

A

passenger in the car, the armrest with fold-out drink holders gives a feeling of luxury. The rear seats have a 60/40 split fold for when extra cargo area is needed above the standard 350 litres. Behind the rear seat centre armrest is a ski hatch. Multiple settings are offered in the way of a height-adjustable driver’s seat and a steering column that can be adjusted in four directions. Alfa Romeo imports Giulietta to Australia with a choice of two engines. Our test car had the 1.4-litre turbocharged MultiAir petrol unit with 125kW of power. Those who want even more performance can get a Giulietta QV with the turbocharged petrol 1750TBi engine that produces up to 173kW of power. Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a great-looking Italian machine from a company with a rich sporting heritage and will appeal to those looking for more than mere transport in their family hatch. Prices start at $36,990, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Gisborne home with a wet sail BY TEO PELLIZZERI GISBORNE District Cricket Association saved its best for last as it dominated the final of the Keith MacKay Shield and took home under-16 representative victory on Sunday. An unbeaten century for Rowan Stott was followed by a devastating opening spell from Ryan Cumberland as GDCA beat Ferntree Gully & District by 140 runs to claim the Victorian Metropolitan Cricket Union title. A thrilling victory against Ringwood District in the semi-final was followed by a dominant final, 4-252 to Ferntree Gully’s 112 all out. Stott came in at 1-45 in the final and went about constructing his innings, sharing a 134-run partnership for the second wicket with Stephen Treweek (53) before his own forced retirement at 101 not out. Ben Whatman (28) went for quick runs late as the GDCA set 253 as the target off 45 overs. Ryan Cumberland then went about devastating the Ferntree Gully top order, claiming two wickets caught behind in the opening over to have the chase reeling at 2-1. Ferntree Gully never recovered as a collapse of 4-16 through the middle order left it 7-56 on the way to being all out 112 in the 23rd over. Cumberland claimed 3-23 and Aaron Paterson 2-7 in the final. ‘‘They’d been building up to it and the grand final just showed the best in some quality players,’’ coach Peter Kavanagh said. ‘‘The early wickets really counted. ‘‘[Stott’s] a brilliant batsman, always well calculated as he sets himself up. Takes a couple of overs to get himself set. ‘‘Stephen Treweek was player of the series and in the final he showed that again.’’ Kavanagh said a strong bond on and off the field between the players had been the secret of the representative team’s success. It proved a driving force as the team overturned its only two pool-stage defeats by winning the semi-final and final. Whatman hit two sixes in his 16 not out to get GDCA home in the semi-final: 5-182 with seven balls to spare chasing Ringwood’s 5-177. ‘‘Everybody that was there reckons it was one of the best games of cricket they’ve seen,’’ Kavanagh said. ‘‘Chasing the runs, the boys had it calculated

Familiar feeling: Stephen Treweek celebrates clean-bowling his Eastern Cricket Association opponent on the way to 17 wickets for the carnival. . . . Benny [Whatman] is the type of player who, if we ever need quick runs, we can put him in. ‘‘There’s some great kids in this group, some who’ll be the future leaders at their respective clubs.’’ Stott (241 at 80.33) and Treweek (192 at 32) led all run-scorers for the Mackay Shield, while

Treweek led all bowlers with 17 wickets at 6.29. VMCU Keith Mackay Under-16 Shield — Week 2: Game 5: GDCA 103 (S Treweek 28) lt Ferntree Gully & District 4-105 (S Treweek 3-6). Game 6: Eastern 7-132 (S Treweek 3-20) lt

Mighty Sunbury shows its class in big win over Melton SUNBURY produced a dominant 39-shot win against Melton in its north-west rivalry that doubled as a top-of-the-table clash in Bowls Victoria Saturday Pennant at the weekend.

Century slows Marsh’s campaign BY TEO PELLIZZERI A PAUL Webber century has Sunbury well placed to halt Bacchus Marsh’s attempts to break into the McIntyre Cup top four after day one of their clash at the weekend. Webber was called on early at 1-8 and did not depart until Sunbury had 240 on the board as his 103 kick-started an innings of 9-331 at Maddingley Park. Jason McGann went on with the job, batting with the tail to make 90. Bacchus Marsh’s revival has the team sitting sixth in the top division of Gisborne District Cricket

Association with 27 points, looking up at Woodend (fifth, 30), Sunbury (fourth, 36) and Riddell (third, 36). But this weekend’s chase will prove a hard ask after Webber’s stands with Heath Boffey (69 for the fifth wicket) and McGann (80 for the sixth wicket) turned Sunbury’s innings around after it fell to 4-91. McGann’s 45-run stand with Jack Landt (22) for the ninth wicket ensured Sunbury would see out the day. Boffey was the third highest scorer with 41, while Nick Strangio’s wicket-filled start to the new year continued as he claimed 4-85. At Wallan, the top team was stunned by Riddell’s

bowling attack to be all-out 76 in just 32 overs. Matt Darby (4-13), Cameron Moran (3-23) and Bryan Brown (2-24) shared the wickets after Riddell won the toss and sent Wallan in. Riddell faced 39 overs before stumps and ensured a first-innings win by making 5-148. Moran (58) top scored on Saturday while Darby (17no) and captain Heath Wadden (28no) will be at the crease should Riddell bat on this weekend. Woodend also claimed the first-innings points within day one as it rolled Rupertswood for 117 and reached 3-159 by stumps. Romsey failed to fire and needed its tail to wag to reach 129 all out, with Sunbury United already 3-109 at stumps.

NWMCA Clarkefield Brumbies squeaked home by a wicket on the final ball against Kealba-Green Gully to maintain its cushion at the top of Vic Kyte Shield in North West Metropolitan Cricket Association. Batting first, Kealba-Green Gully made 5-187 only to be foiled by Clakefield, which reached 9-188 in reply. Clarkefield has 60 points on top of the Vic Kyte Shield while Donnybrook is in second with 48.

Greyhounds A total of 59 greyhounds have been invited to compete in three Group 1 invitationals at The Meadows — including the Macro Meats Temlee, Rookie Rebel and Zoom Top on February 16 — to kick off the threeweek Australian Cup Carnival, with a total of over $1 million in prizemoney. The who’s who of greyhound stars have been invited with trainers asked to show their interest in competing in the three Group 1 races, with the Macro Meats Temlee now worth $100,000 to the winner and the Rookie Rebel and Zoom Top giving chasers a chance for a $75,000 winner’s cheque. Invitations to nominate for the G1 Temlee, G1 Rookie Rebel or G1 Zoom Top have been posted and expressions of interest close on Friday, February 1, before the panel announces the final field on February 4.

Early strikes put Macedon on the ropes

W-League Melbourne Victory will host the W-League grand final this weekend after a penalty shoot-out win against Perth Glory in the semi-final on Sunday. Victory and Glory were level 1-1 after 90 minutes and could not be separated after 30 minutes of extra time. American striker Jessica McDonald netted the winning penalty in the shoot-out after initially having her kick saved by Perth’s goalkeeper, only to be awarded a retake. Melbourne will play Sydney FC in the W-League grand final at AAMI Park on Sunday; kick-off 3.30pm.

BY TEO PELLIZZERI ST Anthonys’ domination of Gisborne District Cricket Association B-grade looks set to continue after late wickets left Macedon reeling in the all-top four clash on Saturday. Macedon was on track to hold St Anthonys to a modest total batting first at Melton Recreation Reserve after a middle order slump, but lower order hitting from Cam Clayton helped the home team to 213. Clayton then took 3-7 in a devastat-

ing spell before stumps to leave Macedon at 3-23. Tim Dawe (5-60) was Macedon’s inspiration with the ball as his capture of St Anthonys’ Heath Fleetwood sparked a streak of 3-17 that left the side at 4-61. But Ryan Dobbie (35) and Wes Greig (33) steadied St Anthonys with a 62-run partnership for the fifth wicket before Clayton (75) came to the wicket to bat with the tail. Clayton and Joshua Evans (16 notout) shared a 62-run stand for the

ninth wicket to get St Anthonys to 213 off 51.2 overs. Key Macedon bat Chris Axton (12no) and Dawe (0no) will resume at the crease this weekend. At Gardiner Reserve, Gisborne overcame two early wickets to 227 against Bacchus Marsh. Jarryd Vernon (65) Daniel Trevillian (29) came together at 2-18 but built an 87-run partnership to put Gisborne back on track. Brook Grumont (39) and Steven Docherty (35) were also in the runs,

while Josh Lloyd (3-36) and Jack Powell (3-40) were best of the bowlers. In C-grade, Diggers Rest Bulla Village made 8-245 off 75 overs batting first against Bacchus Marsh. A 4-29 collapse hollowed out the Burras’ top order after a 68-run opening stand between Kade Richards (39) and Kane Shaw (48) but Andrew Knight’s 65 ensured Diggers Rest Bulla Village would make it to stumps. Knight and Rhys Berry (26no) put on 80 for the seventh wicket.
