jamie’s fresh spin on meals on wheels
A mobile kitchen run by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food rolled into Hoppers Crossing last Thursday, ready to teach residents to cook healthy meals. The kitchen will be based at 86 Derrimut Road, next to the Youth Resource Centre, for 10 weeks. Manager Emma Hannah said hundreds of students had signed up for classes aimed at improving basic cooking skills. “We want to strip food back to basics and make it easier for people to cook,” she said. The mobile kitchen will visit 11 municipalities across Victoria over the next two and a half years as part of the state government’s Healthy Together initiative. Wyndham is one of 14 “at-risk” municipalities taking part. The city has one of the highest obesity rates in the west, with 23.9 per cent of men and 18.9 per cent of women considered obese. It also has low rates of fruit and vegetable consumption. The government’s 2012 Victorian Population Health Survey revealed 57 per cent of men and 53 per cent of women in Wyndham did not eat two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables each day. The mobile kitchen will run 23 classes a week in two, five-week blocks. \ LL » jamiesministryoffood.com

fringe element seeks valuation revamp RATES
Landowners on Wyndham’s urban fringe have urged the council to push for changes to property valuation processes and triggers for land development in a bid to limit soaring rates bills. Contributing to the council’s review into its rating strategy for next financial year, ratepayers also asked the council to push for changes to the ministerial guidelines for differential rates. Under new guidelines introduced by the state government last year, the council is unable to offer lower rates for landowners on the urban fringe. Previously, rates for urban growth zone properties were 10 per cent less than those for residential properties.
The review began last year after landowners “They haven’t taken any thought into what in Wyndham’s north were on the end of rates the land is like out here,” she said. increases of up to 700 per cent in 2012-13, Last week, Cr Gautam Gupta said the following revaluations. review was one of the council’s most The council attributed the increases to important pieces of work. “The new rates land being brought within the urban have been endorsed by the people who growth boundary in 2010, meaning were upset at the rating strategy,” he “the new it could eventually be sold to said of the new strategy. rates have developers for higher prices.

shear bravery behind soldier’s fund-raising strategy Point Cook soldier Tylee Jackson will sacrifice her curly locks for a military crop, but it has nothing to do with her defence force work. The mother-of-four will adopt a short-backand-sides look later this month as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave campaign. Ms Jackson says her partner loves her hair but supports her decision to lose her tresses to raise money for research and help people beat leukaemia and other blood cancers. “With each clip I will be closer to raising $500 or more for the cause,” the 42-year-old said. “I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been touched by cancer and it’s time we found a cure.” Leukaemia Foundation state general manager Stephanie Hechenberger said that in Victoria about 3000 people are projected to be diagnosed with a blood cancer this year. \ SUE HEWITT » my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/ tyleejackson

everal years ago I sat next to a Wyndham councillor at a networking function. Introducing myself, I asked this person how their role as a community leader was going. “Well”, was the reply, “I can’t believe how many people expect me to attend functions, meetings and events. If I went to everything, I’d be out two or three times a week. Don’t people realise I’ve got a life, too?” I’ve never forgotten that conversation because, frankly, this person’s attitude towards those who voted for them sucked. I was disappointed when this councillor was re-elected as I strongly believed, and still do, that they consider the position a free ride. Last month, it was pointed out that three councillors have collectively missed six months of official duties in the past year. While their explanations of sickness and executive burnout are reasonable, in the real world not many of us can take months off and still collect a salary. In the real world we have to work through upset emotions, logistical difficulties, personal and family illness. These few councillors give the rest a bad name. Our mayor, Bob Fairclough, is a hard-working, genuine man who you’ll often see at various functions and events, along with other dedicated councillors. To the others, I say step down from your position if you’re not able to fulfil your duties. And I say to you, dear reader, remember those who are making excuses and defending their poor performance. Next time you’re asked to vote, put the easy riders at the bottom of your list. \ EMMA SUTCLIFFE Emma Sutcliffe is a Little River-based freelance writer.

funding to improve roads and public transport in the city. He is calling on other young people to add their voices by writing to local MPs and sharing stories of their public transport experiences on social media. “Young people make up a large segment of public transport users in Wyndham,” Mr Nash said. “It’s a frustrating experience, getting around on public transport in Wyndham – that’s why I decided to get involved.” Mr Nash said timetable changes meant a bus trip from Wyndham Vale to Werribee Plaza had blown out from 10 minutes to 40 minutes. “Buses are infrequent and don’t take direct routes,” he said. “And they don’t connect with trains.” \ LAURA LITTLE

Wyndham council will need to find $1 million after the federal government withdrew funding for a new library in Tarneit. In June last year, the former Labor government promised the council $1.05 million from the Regional Development Australia Fund. The council has since been told that the Coalition will not honour funding allocated in round five of the project. A spokesman for the Infrastructure and Regional Development Department said the funding would not be honoured as it was an ‘‘election promise’’. Council chief executive Kerry Thompson said the decision was disappointing, but the $6.95 million library would still be built. “It is a critical piece of infrastructure that supports our growing community in Tarneit,” she said. Ms Thompson said the council would need to consider how to fund the gap. Cr Adele Hegedich said it was disappointing that the state government had contributed $750,000 to the project, while the federal government had “stripped” the council of funding. Lalor Labor MP Joanne Ryan disputed the government’s claim that the funding was an election promise, saying it was announced in June last year and had been included in the budget. “The Liberal and National government is just trying to shirk its responsibility in taking away this funding from communities in need. “The Abbott government needs to come clean and explain to our community why it is denying Tarneit this important community facility,” Ms Ryan said. \ LL

Wyndham’s traffic congestion could be eased by an overhead light-rail service along the Princes Highway, according to a key speaker invited to the launch of the council’s congestion campaign. Environmental geographer and sustainability expert Rob Gell sees the solution to Wyndham’s traffic woes in thinking beyond roads and traditional public transport systems. The former television personality said an overhead light-rail system could be installed along the freeway to the city, while a similar system could be installed in Wyndham to provide travel across the municipality. Mr Gell will help launch the council’s Get Wyndham Moving campaign on March 20. The council last week revealed that 21 of Wyndham’s arterial roads were at, or over, capacity. While the council has outlined a road solutions wishlist – including state funding for arterial road duplications, construction of the western end of the east-west link, the removal of rail level crossings, and more buses and trains – Mr Gell said a new approach was needed. “It’s about having a think into the future and not expecting to do what we have always been able to do,” he said. “We’re not living in the 1950s with V8 cars.” Mr Gell said options for Wyndham included privately funded light-rail systems and the installation of charging stations for electric cars. RACV traffic manager Dave Jones, who will also speak at the launch, said the rapid development of Point Cook was an example of how not to develop estates. “We don’t want to repeat the mistakes of Point Cook where connections to the freeway and public transport are inadequate,” he said. The council is lobbying for $100 million of road works, including arterial road duplications for Dohertys, Palmers, Sayers and Derrimut roads. The campaign will be launched on March 20 at the Wyndham Civic Centre from 7pm. \ SUE HEWITT

put jobs on the agenda The youth unemployment crisis reveals worrying pockets of disadvantage under Denis Napthine’s watch. As entire industries collapse and employment security declines, the jobs future of our state should be at the forefront of the Napthine government’s agenda. Its actions show the opposite: cutting $1.2 billion from TAFE, reducing the courses on offer and
the number of enrolments. The government’s major infrastructure pipeline consists of one dodgy tunnel. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews has already released detailed policies to create 10,000 jobs, transform our roads and public transport and get our economy back on track. But in his dysfunctional minority government, Denis Napthine has shown he is more interested in fighting for his own job than fighting for Victorian jobs. TIM PALLAS, OPPOSITION EMPLOYMENT SPOKESMAN

Last week it was revealed the north-western suburbs had one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in Victoria. At 14.8 per cent it compares with Geelong at 13.8 per cent – though you don’t see politicians falling over themselves to address the job situation here like they are down the Princes Highway. There is much more political gain to help Geelong, which is made up of a few marginal state and federal seats which can make all the difference when Victorians go to the polls. The media’s interest is further sparked by the unconventional but effective PR work of Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons. Lyons has made jobs the priority for his council. The sprawling north-west requires more of a joint effort. It would be great if politicians at all levels put self-interest aside and banded together to put the region at the top of the jobs agenda. \ DAVID BONNICI \ EDITOR

news WWW.WYNDHAMWEEKLY.COM.AU hospital funds claim Angers labor mps
The state government has been accused of trying to take credit for Werribee Mercy Hospital’s new rehabilitation centre. At the opening of the centre last Wednesday, state Health Minister David Davis said his government had “secured $28 million from the Commonwealth’s national partnership agreement on improving public hospital services” to pay for the new centre. The comment angered local Labor MPs Joanne Ryan and Tim Pallas, as the centre’s funding was provided by the former Labor federal government. “David Davis completely failed to acknowledge the significant contribution of the former Labor federal government in providing $28 million for the project,” Ms Ryan said. ‘‘Mr Davis of all people should know that this was a joint effort, and should be acknowledged as such.” Mr Pallas said the state government had shown “unbelievable front”. But Mr Davis defended his comments, saying the federal government had provided the state government with funding for necessary health projects. “It was a state government project … the state government manages hospitals across the state” he said. \ LL

Werribee’s Storm Robbins hopes a new rehabilitation centre at Werribee Mercy Hospital will make his life easier. Until now, Mr Robbins, who has cerebral palsy, has made regular journeys to the Royal Children’s and Sunshine hospital for rehabilitation. The opening of a rehab centre in Werribee means Mr Robbins, 23, can spend more time in the gym building up strength in his muscles and less time on the road. “People with disabilities can find it hard to travel,” he said. “Without these services, who knows where I could be.” The $28 million centre, funded by the federal government, was opened by state Health Minister David Davis last Wednesday. The centre includes a gym, in-patient ward with 30 multi-day beds, eight two-bed rooms, 14 single-bed rooms, meeting and consulting spaces. It also includes geriatric evaluation and management services, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and diabetes assessment and care. Mercy Health executive director Linda Mellors said the centre would meet the needs of the growing Wyndham community. “We understand the growing need for health

MY WYNDHAM \ harry van moorst is keen for green, WRITES REBECCA MILLER
Werribee resident for 25 years, environmental activist Harry van Moorst says Wyndham is a great place that needs to be better protected.
Where’s your favourite retreat spot? Walking along Werribee River and admiring our coastline. I don’t want to see it developed, we need to protect it. Favourite place to get coffee or a bite to eat? We have some wonderful Thai, Vietnamese and Indian restaurants. I spend most of my time at the Italian Sports Club of Werribee. What do you love about your patch? The growth of our community through Facebook sites such as those for the Shoestring Garden, Western Region Environment Centre and Wyndham Heritage Recovery Incorporated. What would you change in your neighbourhood? Create more sustainable jobs. There’s a problem of poverty and inequality in Wyndham with people
What’s your connection to the local community? I’m the director of the Western Region Environment Centre. I’ve been working there for 15 years, since the end of the [Werribee] toxic dump campaign. After speaking with the council and the community, we set up the environment centre to protect Wyndham’s environment and act as a watchdog for the area. Our focus is on community development within an environmental context, including creating jobs linked to sustainability.
getting left behind due to a lack of employment or job loss. Work needs to be done on public transport and people need to be encouraged to ride bicycles. What do you remember being in Wyndham that’s no longer there? Quite a few heritage buildings have gone, including the Davis House on Watton Street which was demolished
last year. A lot of Wyndham’s history has been lost and a lot of space and land, including agricultural land, due to development. When I came to Werribee there were no traffic lights and it was easy to get around, unlike now. \

little house to fund big results Inspired by the shape of children’s building blocks, a Williams Landing developer is making a cubby to help build the future for young people. Cedar Woods is a part of a cubby challenge to raise funds for youth homelessness charity Kids Under Cover. The charity provides mentoring, scholarships and portable accommodation for young people.
Cedar Woods is one of several developers to meet the challenge of building a cubby to be auctioned to raise funds for the charity. It has created the “Grubby Cubby”, to ‘‘encourage children to get in and play in an interactive way”, according to Cedar Woods marketing manager Stephen Jones. This year’s entries will be on display at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show from March 26-30 and will be auctioned on Sunday, March 30. \ SH

wheels set in motion to tackle cancer
As the only ‘live seafood’ restaurant with yum cha in the Point Cook area, China Lantern House is the place for fresh seafood and banquets, new manager Tim says. “All our dishes are made fresh and our fast-paced service makes us the ideal place to have lunch on a busy work day. “And our lunch specials start from $10.80 per person, including soup, an a la carte dish with rice, and Chinese tea or soft drink,” Tim says. The restaurant, also open for dinner, and has on the menu steamed and fried dumplings, including vegetarian, beef, lamb and pork; seafood, rice, noodle and vegetarian dishes; and traditional Chinese desserts. Diners can order their choice of meals off the menu for yum cha rather than the traditional structured banquet. Even though China Lantern has only been open two months it is already pleasing diners, including Melbourne foodies Leon and ‘Chooka’. “Had dinner for two. We had fried chicken and pork ribs. Décor was good and the manager was accommodating. We will be returning to try other items in the near future.” Chooka agreed. “Went and had the all-you-can eat yum cha. It was pretty good and the manager was helpful. Will be back.” China Lantern House, at shop 46/47 Sanctuary Lakes shopping centre, 300 Point Cook Road, Point Cook, opens 11am-3pm and 5-10pm daily.

Raphael McGowan was cycling across the United States with friends in 2011 when he got a call to say his sister had been diagnosed with cancer. A mole on Tess’s back had turned into a melanoma. Doctors removed the mole, but by the time Tess began treatment the cancer had spread throughout her body. She died less than a year later, leaving behind a husband and a one-year-old daughter. McGowan says his sister’s sudden death stunned his family. “She was so young and had very fair skin and was always sun-conscious,” he says. After struggling to come to terms with his sister’s death, McGowan decided to jump back on his bike and cycle 1900 kilometres from Adelaide to Sydney to raise awareness and money to help with research. The Sydney resident is visiting friends and family along the way, so they can share their memories of Tess. On Sunday, McGowan will arrive in Werribee to meet family from the western suburbs. He will ride to Whitten Oval on Monday, where he will join the Western Bulldogs for a morning tea. Tess was a big Bulldogs fan.
McGowan hopes to raise at least $100,000 for the Melanoma Institute of Australia. “Tess was on a trial program and it gave her another three months with family and friends,” he says. “It meant we could get out everything we wanted to say and Tess could make her wishes clear.”
McGowan hopes his journey will encourage people to regularly check their moles and be sun conscious. “If you can catch it early, you can get it removed.” \ LAURA LITTLE » cyclingtomarch.com
BRIEFS family escapes fire A Laverton family has escaped a fire that destroyed their house last Sunday night. Firefighters were called to Woods Street about 1.45am after neighbours heard screaming and saw flames leaping from the Housing Department house. The family was evacuated from it after being woken up by a smoke alarm. A man in his 30s was treated by paramedics for minor burns and a small cut to his arm. The cause of the fire will be investigated. \ police car rammed Police are appealing for witnesses after a police car was rammed in Hoppers Crossing last Tuesday. Police said a red Ford sedan reversed into the car after it was spotted driving at high speed along Derrimut Road. Police tracked the vehicle to Paloma Court and attempted to stop it, but the driver reversed into the side of the police car and fled the scene. A police officer was taken to hospital with minor injuries. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 \ health message for women South Western Melbourne Medicare Local is urging Wyndham women to look after their health by being screened for breast and
cervical cancer. Statistics show Wyndham has among the lowest screening rates in Victoria. GP Jo-Ann Silva said screening was vital. \ breakfast club Ninety students from across Wyndham will get their school day off to a good start after a local charity received $2000 to provide them with breakfast. The Breakfast Club, which is run by the Sikh community, received the money through the Williams Landing Neighbourhood Grant Scheme. The club provides students with ingredients such as bread, milk and cereal to ensure they have breakfast before starting school. \ be a good sport Wyndham residents can improve their athletic performance by visiting Wyndham Vale’s newest sports medicine centre and high-performance academy.

Prison Officer Department of Justice It’s nothing like you see on the TV or in the movies. What I find most challenging about the job is learning how to deal with prisoners’ issues that they come up with regarding their impending release, and helping them manage their relationships with their family whilst they’re in prison. It’s just a constant learning process. I think it’s a great career move, and a job you can be proud of.

three big days at weerama WERRIBEE
Werribee was a hive of activity and colour at the weekend, with thousands of people flocking to this year’s Weerama Festival. The three-day festa began with Busk at Dusk in Station Place on Friday night, giving would-be singers and songwriters a chance to show off their talents. On Saturday, families flocked to Chirnside Park for a children’s fun-fest, followed by a fireworks display. Then on Sunday, close to 15,000 people lined Watton Street for the annual parade. Festival director Warrick Lynch said 1000 people representing 56 community groups took part in the parade. Students from The Grange College led the way, carrying banners spelling out “Weerama”. “The crowd over the whole weekend was really good,” Mr Lynch said. “On Saturday night you could hear the cheers from people watching the fireworks from the street.” \ LAURA LITTLE

TIME OUT \ pete murray’s time is now, WRITES BEN CAMERON
“for a long time i was a bit shy”
ntil recently, Pete Murray’s relationship with his 2003 album Feeler was somewhat strained. While it tugged on a nation’s heartstrings – selling almost half a million copies and clinching 12 ARIA award nominations through hits like So Beautiful and Bail Me Out – for many years Murray wasn’t convinced of its worth and was initially surprised by its success. “I’m OK with it now,” the self-taught singer songwriter says. “When we mixed it, I thought it should have been a bit more dynamic. But a part of the beauty of the album is that it’s not. “I never listened to that album from start to finish. I just couldn’t do it, there were too many things I didn’t like about it. “Sometimes you go into a kind of post-album blues. I struggled with hearing anything good about it, and when it started having success it really surprised me.” Although appreciating the album has taken him a while, Murray always had a strong connection with the eighth track, My Time. The song encapsulated the feeling that maybe he was wasting it by turning his back on sporting pursuits – he was an accomplished rugby player – and pursuing a music career. “I was spending all this time writing, for a year at least,” he says. “I kinda thought ‘am I watching my life slip away here?’” Murray says he owes it to Feeler for making him a more confident performer and person. “For a long time I was a bit shy and didn’t really believe that things were happening,” he says. “But
I feel really confident when I walk on stage [now]. I’d always look at the crowd and wonder ‘are they digging this?’ “But now I don’t even worry. If they’re not digging it, who gives a shit. As long as I’m enjoying it, I know they’ll enjoy it.’’
Murray will join Bernard Fanning, Josh Pyke and Clare Bowditch at Werribee Park on March 16 for Live on the Lawn. \ email@example.com » liveonthelawn.com.au

Motoring \ rod easdown FINDS BIDDING FAST AND FURIOUS AT Car auctions
“If the car you want goes over your budget, come back next week. You have to be as cold and efficient as the regulars,” he says. The cars are mostly from government fleets or car dealers who have taken them as unwanted trade-ins. While the service history is usually available (you may have to ask to see it before the auction) and a brief history of the car is displayed, you don’t get a test drive. At best you’ll be allowed to start the engine. The engine bay has usually been steam cleaned, the car is washed and the interior vacuumed, but it’s seldom a thorough job. “You’re mostly looking for repaired on damage,” Joe says. “Check the dipstick for Average, a sludge in the oil. If the radiator has water rather than coolant, forget it. Check the car takes 90 tyres and make sure the registration is seconds to current. Look for exhaust smoke.” sell He likes ex-government cars (“even though they’re white”), especially high-mileage ones from the country that have done most of their travels with a thoroughly warmed-up motor. So how many auctions does he think you should attend before buying? “I can’t think fast enough,” says Joe. “I find a wholesaler to bid for me and sling him $100.” \ email@example.com Things you didn’t know about motoring… The 10 most expensive cars bought at auction are a Duesenberg, a Ford GT40, two Mercedes-Benzes and six Ferraris.
ou’ve probably heard about the bargains to be had at car auctions. Tread carefully; it’s a minefield in there. My mate Joe has been going to auctions for years. He’s a professional car detailer and picks up work from the dealers and wholesalers who make up the regular customer base. He sees the people he calls the wood ducks making errors all the time. “They forget they’re up against buyers who have been coming for years,” Joe says. “I’ve seen beginners getting excited when they figure a car will be a bargain because the professional buyers aren’t bidding. It doesn’t occur to them there’s a reason these guys aren’t interested.” So what are the traps? “What’s hardest to get used to is how fast it happens,” says Joe. “On average, a car takes 90 seconds to sell, some take less than a minute. You have to be fast; if you’re not, the auctioneer will knock it down to a regular. “Go on a weekday, not a Saturday. The professionals tend not to come on Saturdays and auctioneers often start the bidding $1000 higher than weekdays. “At the really big ones, like ManheimFowles (in Altona), there can be three auction lines going at once and this gets tricky. You may think you’re bidding for the car in the first line but find your bid is being taken for the car in the second. “The key is to know what you want and how much you’re going to pay, and stick to it.

tigers’ tail fails to wag our guys – to let someone who’s bowling straight up and down get five wickets. Werribee’s quest for an undefeated season “He just bowled in the right area and got in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket the rewards.” Association is over. Chasing 274 for victory, the Tigers made a The Tigers’ winning streak in east-west first bright start through openers Matt Dean (52) XI was halted at 11 after a 32-run loss to title and David Wolfe (31), who put on 58 for the contender Oakleigh at Warrawee Park on first wicket.

hoppers crossing rides winning impetus Bowls
There is nothing in sport like seeing an underdog swoop in for a startling victory. Hoppers Crossing did just that, coming from the bottom half of the top four to claim the section pennant in Bowls Victoria’s division 3 section 1 at the weekend. Hoppers beat the top two sides on consecutive days to move out of their section and into the knockout divisional finals, which start on Saturday. An ecstatic Hoppers president Daryl Marendaz said the narrow 80-76 semi-final victory against Altona on Saturday built momentum for Sunday’s sectional final 107-67 victory over Melton. “We had a tight game against Altona. There wasn’t much in it with three or four ends to go,” Marendaz said. “We kept plugging away and fighting at the end. That gave us the
impetus to say, ‘We can go on from here and “We didn’t give them a look-in right from win the section; we might be the underdog, the start. but we’re going to give this a real go’.” “After eight ends it was something like 27-8 Even the most one-eyed Hoppers Crossing and we never looked back. fan could not have predicted what was about “We were never under 20 shots in front the to come against Melton. whole day.” The 40-shot victory was a startling Hoppers Crossing’s attention now contradiction of the form guide. turns to the divisional finals. “We gave Melton won the regular-season The club can dare to dream of them a real encounter between the clubs much greater things after setting touch-up” 2-0 and did so with convincing up a semi-final date with section 4 three-rinks-to-one victories on both winners Camberwell Central to be occasions. played at Middle Park Bowls Club on But as Hoppers showed, finals are a Saturday. new ball game.

‘pathetic’ bees pull the pin Bowls
Werribee saved its worst performance of the Bowls Victoria division 1 section 1 season for its last and most important game. The Bees were putrid in the sectional final, losing 91-51 to Kew Heights on Sunday after going in as slight favourites. The passage to the divisional finals seemingly opened up for the Bees after the top-two ranked sides were toppled on Saturday, but their insipid showing against
in-form Kew meant sudden death. Bees skip Snowy Barker described the loss as “terribly disappointing” and one that he never saw coming. “The game was more or less over 20 ends in,” he said. “We only scored 18 shots collectively after 47 ends. “I said at half-time, ‘It’s been pathetic, we’ve got to show a bit of pride’.” Kew was like a runaway freight train and there was no reeling it in. It was a fact that stared Barker in the face
as he decided to avoid further humiliation by calling the game. “I just shook hands with them and conceded with five ends to go,” he said. “It was open for anyone who wanted to grab their chance to win it … give them credit, they’ve been playing really good bowls towards the end of the season when it counted, and that’s what it’s all about. “It was totally disappointing to end the season like that.” \ LANCE JENKINSON
falcons remain undefeated Netball
City West Falcons snared their fourth straight win in the Victorian Netball League championship division. The undefeated Falcons are an offensive force, averaging a league-high 57 goals per game with an average winning margin of 23. The juggernaut rolled on with a 59-42 win over long-time rivals Monash University Storm at the State Netball Hockey Centre on Wednesday night. “The girls put in a pretty hard and tough pre-season so it’s actually good to reap the rewards early on in the competition,” Falcons assistant coach Nicole Richardson said. “We’re travelling along quite nicely at the moment and a lot of players have had quite a bit of court time and [are] sharing the load. It’s a good place to be after round four.” While the Falcons attack is running like clockwork, their defence can do with a bit of tightening. Richardson was not pleased with the performance of the back end against the Storm. However, the Falcons are still ranked in the league’s top three after four games. “Defensively, I don’t think we were at our best, and you have to give credit to Monash Uni,” Richardson said. “We’re going to have to go back to the drawing board with our defenders and … continue to work on our defence. It is easy to plaster over the defensive cracks when your three-pronged attack is in such hot form. The Knott sisters - Kath and Julia and youngster Alice Teague-Neeld are going to give the Falcons’ coaches a few headaches at the selection table. Three into two spots will not go and all three have made a case for the starters bibs. “It’s a great dilemma to have from a coaching perspective,” Richardson said. “We have three goalers playing well and shooting high percentage and [that] keeps the opposition guessing as to what starting line-up we’re going to throw up. “It does make it a headache for the coaches to work out which two are going to get the start, but it’s a headache you’d prefer to have.” The umpires votes went to goal defence Casey Price, but in Richardson’s eyes it was Maggie Lind who stood out. Lind has made a seamless transition into a mid-court role and thrived in the absence of young gun Liz Watson, who was on Melbourne Vixens duty. “She’s developing quite nicely into a centre court player now,” Richardson said. “She had an exceptional game and she fed our goalers with some great ball.” The Falcons will take on Geelong Cougars, coached by former Falcons assistant Gerard Murphy, tonight at the SNHC. \ LJ MARCH 5, 2014 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 33
giants drop their bundle
cats purring after bats come good
Werribee’s disappearing act in the third and deciding game of the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 semi-final series with Springvale Lions will remain an unsolved mystery. The Giants will be haunted by the concession of 13 first-inning runs that led to a 25-6 game-three loss at KH Wearne Reserve on Sunday. Giants coach Phil Balzer was shocked by the manner of his young team’s defeat. “There’s just no way of seeing that it was going to happen,” he said. “You couldn’t predict it.” The Giants’ pitching had been a strength all season. The pitchers brought the goods in games one and two, giving up two runs in a combined 21 innings. The Giants took game one at the Melbourne Ball Park on the back of young starter Wes De Jong and it took the Lions a combined 12 innings of pitching from Jonathan Lowe and Chad Northcott to square the ledger in game two at Presidents Park. There was confidence in the Giants’ camp when De Jong took to the mound for the start of game three. But De Jong never settled, giving up 11 runs on two outs before Balzer was forced to go to the bullpen. For De Jong, it was an outing that in no way represented his season as a whole. “Wes has been good all year,” Balzer said. “He hasn’t been that far off at any stage and it’s certainly not something we expected to see today. “He was pretty distraught, but he’ll be right; he’ll learn from it.” The rot set in early and the Giants never recovered. Three relief pitchers – Daine Gregory, Lowe and Wade Balzer – could not arrest the slide. “Our pitching has been our strength all year, so when that falls away, we’ve got nothing to respond with,” Balzer said.
Hoppers Crossing has finished the summer on a high note with a finals-shaping win against Bentleigh on the road in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association’s senior division. The Cats brushed aside their batting inconsistencies to post a mammoth 4-323 and blast the victory target of 274 to pieces. Asif Jan produced his best knock for the club with 121 not out at No. 5, while Ryan Latham made 88 to finish the season with back-to-back half centuries. The pair combined for a magnificent 166-run fourth wicket partnership. The chase was set up by a solid 47-run opening stand between player-coach Darrel Brown (34) and Justin Goegan (26). The Cats’ last-day win cost Bentleigh a spot in the final four. In north A1, Werribee Centrals were relegated after falling 18 runs short against finals-bound Sunshine Druids at Galvin Park. The Centurions only had to tie with Druids’ 6-216 to stay up but were bowled out for 198. They tumbled to fourth-last when news filtered through of a big St Albans’ points grab over Aberfeldie. \ LJ
Concentration: Jonathan Lowe was focused on the mound for Werribee Giants in game two. (DARREN HOWE)
“We’re not a big hitting team, we don’t score a lot of runs … not many teams come back after a 13-run first inning.” Oliver Box provided a rare highlight for the Giants with a three-run triple, while Simon Riches picked up two hits. The Giants will be on the lookout for a new coach after Balzer said “it’s unlikely” he will be back next summer. He took on a one-year deal as a stop-gap measure so the club could potentially find its next long-term coach. “I’m glad I did it,” Balzer said. “They’re a good group of guys, they’re really genuine and

point cook comes to the party to relieve falcons vtca
Wyndhamvale’s desire to prove it belongs in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association’s west B1 has driven it to a finals berth at its first attempt. The Falcons started the final round outside the top four, but it all fell into place come 6pm on Saturday. Taking care of their own business, they overcame Newport-Digman in a tense finish at the Bryan Martyn Oval. Then assistance came from Point Cook, which beat Seabrook, sending the Brookers tumbling from the four. “It was probably relief more than anything,” Falcons opening bowler Ryan Radford said. 34 WYNDHAM WEEKLY \ MARCH 5, 2014

The stand-out for the Falcons was fast bowler Jake Styles, who took six first-innings wickets. After taking 50 wickets last summer, including 11 in the Williamstown and District Cricket Association A-turf grand final win over Williamstown Imperials, Styles has added 40 already this season to shape as a barometer for the Falcons heading into the finals. “He’s certainly standing up for us,” Radford said. The west B1 semi-finals will see the Falcons travel to Sunshine Heights, while Point Cook will host Sunshine United, with the winners to play in the grand final. \ LJ
