Forestry friends: Friends of Forestry committee members (back) Brett Robins, Jan Adams, Margaret Robins, Mark Stevens, Kersten Gentle, Graham Taylor and Angus McMahon and (front) Leah Bannerman, Martha Chandler, Cheryl Chalmers and Jacqui Commans.

Pro-logging group takes root A GROUP of timber industry supporters has formed to push back against vocal protesters who are against the logging of Mt St Leonard in Toolangi. The more than 100 members of the Friends of Forestry group met for the first time last month. The group said it has been created out of ‘‘frustration at the misinformation being spread’’ about the forestry industry. Friends of Forestry president Brett Robins, a fourth-generation Yarra Valley timber industry worker, said the group wanted to provide the public with its side of the story. ‘‘We want to get some genuine facts out there for people. We want people to understand if they shut forestry down then no one can use that area. There is going to come a time when no one can even take their kids camping,’’ he said. Mr Robins said he believes the biggest misconceptions about the logging are that there is no replanting, the water quality is adversely affected and that it causes the extinction

of animals such as the Leadbeater’s possum. ‘‘For every tree that is cut down four are replanted,’’ he said. ‘‘If [Leadbeater’s possums] are so extinct then why are they everywhere? ‘‘All the greenies are doing is trying to send contractors broke.’’ Mr Robins said the protesters were chaining themselves to machines, spitting on people and even going as far as to spread faecal matter on the machines. ‘‘If I went to a work site in the city and disrupted it like that, I would get arrested. I don’t know why more protesters are not getting arrested. ‘‘If the timber industry wasn’t here there wouldn’t be a Yarra Ranges.’’ Healesville resident and forestry advocate Kersten Gentle, who is also on the Friends of

Forestry committee, said the group was concerned about the negative impact on tourism the protests were having. She said a group of protesters were in the centre of Healesville each Saturday, marching across the pedestrian crossing on the main street, holding up traffic. ‘‘If they are going to protest, do it in a way that doesn’t affect people and local business. Take it to the politicians like everyone else. ‘‘This is about standing tall and no longer hiding.’’ MyEnvironment spokeswoman Sarah Rees said she was aware the Friends of Forestry group had been formed and hoped it would provide a ‘‘fair and intelligent debate’’. ‘‘I wish them well in their endeavours but I hope they are not here to hinder conservation needs of the area.’’ She said the establishment of this group highlighted the need for Premier Ted Baillieu to ‘‘step in and mediate this problem’’. ‘‘[The timber workers] are not getting their jobs done and people are risking their lives to stop it. It’s lose-lose. Yet it’s all quiet from Spring Street.’’

I’ve been reading the article in the paper about the council and state government in relation to phone towers. I really do think there needs to be more phone towers. One dead spot not mentioned is Mt Evelyn. My mum is with Optus and can’t get service when she comes to see me and my dad is with Vodafone and he can’t get service either. I’m with Telstra and I get service but not it’s very good. It often drops in and out, so I really do think the council needs to let some more towers be built.

A CDS is simple and effective. A 10 cent deposit on drink containers creates an incentive for recycling and reduces littering.

Local groups like scouts and school organisations can earn $30 an hour in refunds while cleaning up rubbish.

Sheriff’s got a brand new toy

Submissions on local laws taper off

BY DANIEL TRAN

THE Yarra Ranges Council’s local laws have gone from receiving about 300 submissions when first put out for public consultation to receiving only 10 in the last round. At a special meeting last week, the council invited the public to make verbal submissions about the local laws and now a report will be prepared for adoption of the laws at a coming meeting incorporating any amendments. The original draft, released in October, drew criticism for being too strict on the number of animals households were allowed to own besides other issues such as camping in public places and charitable organisations being able to sell raffle tickets. The local laws were then revised and released for further community consultation in June. Cr Richard Higgins said the fact there were so few submissions this time highlighted that the amendments to the local laws have been well received. ‘‘I think we are now fairly close to where we need to be,’’ he said. Cr Tim Heenan said the shire was difficult to manage because of the mix of urban and rural areas. ‘‘Council officers will use discretion and common sense rather than saying you can’t do this and you can’t do that,’’ he said.

THE Victorian Sheriff’s office has got stronger, better and faster, with new technology that can identify in seconds thousands of drivers who have fines outstanding. The technology, known as Automatic Number Plate Recognition, was unveiled last week in Glen Waverley and will allow the sheriff’s office to read up to 2000 number plates in a second and compare them against a list of drivers. ‘‘When a number plate scan matches with a vehicle registration number on the outstanding list, the software tells the sheriff’s office they have a successful match,’’ Victorian Sheriff Brendan Facey said. ‘‘It then records the time, date, location and number plate. It is planned the new technology will be used in trawling operations in suburban shopping centres and sheriff’s officers will be able to clamp the wheels of debtors’ cars. ‘‘This technology will enhance our operations and show Victorians that sheriff’s officers are out in force to crack down on unpaid fines and outstanding warrants,’’ Mr Facey said. Department of Justice spokeswoman Fiona Ung said the new technology would be rolled out

No mercy: Sheriff’s officer Ben Naughton uses the automatic number plate recognition technology to catch drivers dodging fines. Picture: Wayne Hawkins across Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs including Maroondah and Yarra Ranges over the next few weeks. Ms Ung said the technology had no room for error. In the past, sheriff’s officers had to manually enter number plates into a database. ‘‘Now it’s just a matter of driving through a car park

Shire keeps fingers crossed on pokies bid BY DAVID SCHOUT

HOW THEY COMPARE

YARRA Ranges has a much lower number of poker machines per capita when compared with the rest of the state, new figures show. That could change if an application for 30 new machines in Healsville is approved. Data from the 2010-11 financial year reveals Yarra Ranges has 3.81 poker machines per 1000 adults, compared with the statewide average of 6.19 and the neighbouring Maroondah’s 9.32 — the highest in metropolitan Melbourne. Yet a successful application for 30 poker machines by the Terminus Hotel in Healesville would inflate Yarra Ranges numbers. Several councillors have spoken out against the application, which they feel has few positives for the region. ‘‘They (poker machines) are without a shadow of a doubt a curse on our society — the last thing we need is any more,’’ Cr Noel Cliff said. ‘‘Healesville has enough challenges they are dealing with . . . they do not need more poker machines,’’ Cr Tim Heenan said. Although the application has been made to the Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation, which will take the final decision, the council has drawn up an ‘impact assessment report’ to deter-

The report indicates that the Yarra Ranges council wants to keep poker machines, of which there are 427, at a minimum to protect a community that is ‘‘extremely vulnerable to problem gambling’’. The council’s concerns relate especially to problem gambling vulnerability of the local

indigenous community, low-income or disadvantaged households, and victims of the 2009 bushfires. According to the applicant, the hotel has become a ‘‘pseudo-social club’’ that helps various local groups. They have also committed $30,000 a year to the community should the application be successful.

The council report said the benefits associated with that donation was ‘‘modest’’. ‘‘The proposal to install 30 EGMs (electronic gaming machines) at the Terminus Hotel will, on balance, be detrimental to the local community,’’ it stated. ‘‘There are few positive social and economic impacts associated with the proposal.’’ Cr Jeanette McRae was angered that consultation with the community had not taken place. ‘‘It is just disturbing that this hasn’t occurred. If we don’t know what the community thinks and we only know what organisations think, then it’s not right,’’ she said. The hearing will take place next Wednesday.

INBRIEF Close call in house fire A man narrowly escaped from his Mount Evelyn home before it was destroyed by fire in the early hours of last Tuesday morning. The fire in the Rangeview Road mud-brick house started when books and papers stacked next to an unguarded open fireplace caught fire shortly before 3am. The fire had been left burning when the man, the only occupant, went to bed. Fire crews from Mount Evelyn, Bayswater, Lilydale, Wandin and Coldstream went to the scene.

Path to link townships Work has begun on the long-awaited Hills Project linking townships along the Mt Dandenong ridge with pedestrian paths. The first stage is to connect the Five Ways at Kalorama and Mt Dandenong Village with a 3.8 kilometre link at a cost of $812,000. Yarra Ranges council has appointed Ultimate Group Australia as the main contractor to construct the paths. The path will wind through mountain ash forests and small townships during its nine-kilometre journey from Montrose to Sassafras. The council said it would work to source external funding to complete the whole project.

BY CLAIRE THWAITES THE Mooroolbark History Group is busy putting together its first book, titled Celebrate Mooroolbark. The book is a look back at activities held at or around the Mooroolbark Community Centre from the time it opened in March 1980. The opening was marked by holding the first Red Earth Festival weekend, which ran for 21 years before the name was changed to the Celebrate Mooroolbark festival, which has run for 12 years. History group president Marion Stott says they are in the final stages of putting the book together after years of work. ‘‘But we know many people offered to go home and look through their photos of the 1980s and we just wanted to give them a last opportunity to bring their information to us,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s been a long process but I’m so excited. ‘‘I think the community should be proud of the fact we have kept the festival going for 33 years. We have had our down years and

up years but it’s still a wonderful day.’’ The last chance for people to contribute photos and material for the book will be by bringing them to the group’s fund-raising second-hand market this Saturday. The book is set to be launched during History Week in October and will be in the form of a “gowns through the decades” fashion parade. The market runs from 9am-4pm at shop 2 in the Terrace, Brice Avenue, Mooroolbark. Details: 9726 8740.

Our results put your child in a class above Our unique parallel learning model, small classes and wonderful environment all work together to provide excellent results for our students. We are extremely proud of the fact that in 2011 97% of Tintern graduates went on to pursue further studies. Victorian State Government On Track Data regarding 2011 Year 12 graduates places Tintern Schools firmly in the top 5% of Victorian Schools.

As students approach their final years of school, we work with them individually to provide structured advice on possible careers and courses. Even once the final results are in, we continue to work with them to ensure clarity and direction.

FEATURESTORY While many commuters are waiting for protective services officers at their local railway station, police say PSOs have virtually wiped out crime at Dandenong station within weeks. CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS followed two PSOs to see how they deal with the reputed trouble spot. Pictures: ROB CAREW

Caught out: A man is detained after PSOs conducted an identity check.

Keeping watch: Pierre Devienne and Ben Huismann on the beat.

It’s safety first at the station t’s late on a Friday night. A train commuter tweets: ‘‘The next station is Dandenong. Tell my mother I love her.’’ Another tweeter gags: ‘‘Place your bets now: A. Assaulted B. Robbed C. Raped D. Slashed.’’ Such jokes about Dandenong railway station’s reputed lack of safety may soon fall flat. Trouble has seemingly left the station since protective services officers — armed guards who have trained at the Victoria Police Academy — started patrolling the station on May 29. For three consecutive weekends in June, there were no reported assaults or robberies at the station and its surrounds during the PSOs’ shifts. Inspector Bruce Kitchen describes it as ‘‘a massive reduction in crime’’ — an 80 per cent reduction at the railway precinct in June. The station vigils will gradually spread across Melbourne railway stations in the next two years; the state government plans to deploy PSOs at Noble Park, Box Hill and Epping in coming weeks. Frankston and Springvale PSOs are expected before the end of the year. The Weekly joined Ben Huismann and Pierre Devienne, two of five protective services officers who rotate shifts at Dandenong station from 6pm to the last train. Huismann and Devienne patrol the station with a cool confidence that belies seven weeks of training and four months on the job, including a three-month supervised stint at Melbourne CBD stations. The PSOs’ uniform is closely modelled on a regular police kit. Each officer is armed with capsicum spray, a stun gun and a pistol. People often mistake them for police. On a

couple of occasions, mothers scold excitable children as the PSOs walk past. ‘‘There’s the coppers!’’ a boy yells out. ‘‘Hey, stop that,’’ his mother tells him. Devienne says it’s quiet this particular Thursday night but, soon after 6pm, the PSOs grab the details of a man smoking under a causeway roof — a prohibited area for smoking. A radio check reveals he is wanted allegedly stealing from a Frankston bottle shop. As the night chill descends, Huismann and Devienne wait with the man, who has another smoke — this time legally. Police arrive and take the handcuffed man to Dandenong police station for questioning. Devienne says that often a person’s misdemeanour, such as smoking in a prohibited area, uncovers a more serious track record. He tells of a girl who was smoking at the station recently. There were three outstanding warrants for her arrest. Later in the night, the unpredictability of their task is underscored. Devienne asks a mother to butt out as she sits under a bus shelter with her daughters. ‘‘F . . . off. How dare you tell me to put out my smoke in the cold?’’ she screams. Despite the withering reaction, the job is a welcome change of pace for the two PSOs: Huismann used to work in sales and marketing, Devienne as a hotel duty manager. They both hope to become fully fledged police officers. The peak hour is suddenly over. The throngs of commuters thin and the groups that linger at bus stops become more obvious. Devienne says loitering groups are the first

August 7, 2012

signs of trouble. Routinely, the PSOs quickly snuff out the potential for trouble. The best approach is to ‘‘move them on’’, Devienne says. ‘‘By letting them stay here, it may escalate to something else.’’ Has there been any violence? ‘‘Since I’ve been here there’s been nothing,’’ Devienne says. ‘‘If things escalate, we can get back-up — the crew from Dandenong will be here very quickly.’’ The PSOs regularly do a ‘‘social welfare’’ chat with a group of children who linger at a dimlylit bus stop at night.

‘That’s what we’re here for. The majority of commuters just want to get home safely.’ — Ben Huismann One of them, 12-year-old Keysborough boy Kenny, tells the Weekly he likes how the PSOs are there to look after everyone. ‘‘They tell us just to be good, don’t get into trouble.’’ The PSOs get a call-out to a bus stop where a man is suspected of being drunk. Devienne talks to the man, who says he’s on medication for schizophrenia. Devienne asks for his identity and he roars in defiance: “What did I do wrong?” Devienne doesn’t get sucked in. He keeps calm and asks the man’s companion where the man is living. He asks the man if he’s been drinking. The man replies: “I’m not drunk. I don’t drink. There’s too much violence with alcohol.’’ The man’s companion assures Devienne he’ll

look after him, is apologetic over the outburst and leads him away from the railway precinct. Devienne turns his attention to two young males with soft drink bottles. He asks them what they are drinking. They are sober but cheeky. “Do you want to try a drink?’’ one retorts. The PSOs hand out an average of 20-25 infringement notices at weekends. They are for minor offences such as smoking in a restricted area, drunkenness, bad language and conduct and possessing an open container of alcohol. The PSOs may call in Dandenong police to detain drunks — a chance to sober them up and ensure they get home safely. ‘‘It’s part of our duty of care,’’ Devienne says. Troublemakers seem to have shifted to neighbouring stations in the meantime. Inspector Kitchen says there has been an increase in ‘‘activity’’ at Springvale and Noble Park stations since the PSOs started at Dandenong and says ‘‘Noble Park and Springvale are still concerns’’. Inside the station, all seems to run like clockwork. Commuters wait and depart without anxiety. Most say they are glad the PSOs are here. Railway staff say their presence has driven away the ‘‘riff raff’’ and made their jobs easier. A Metro Trains staff member says he wanted to apply to be a PSO. “Who wouldn’t want to have a gun on their thigh?’’ But he concedes he wouldn’t want to take a pay cut to take the job, with a starting pay of $50,548. Huismann says he feels a reward from helping protect others at the station, to make them feel safe. ‘‘That’s what we’re here for. The majority of commuters just want to get home safely.’’

Supercar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the next generation Ewan Kennedy and Derek Ogden road test the Lexus GS 350 F Sport aving driven the Lexus LFA supercar at Sandown Raceway last year, we were well aware of the stunning capabilities of this aristocratic Japanese automobile manufacturer. Noted initially for superbly built but somewhat bland vehicles, Lexus has shown its LFA to be the harbinger of a whole range of raw-edged premium product. Now comes the car thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the next step in the Lexus line-up: the GS 350. Our car was an F Sport, which, at $107,497, falls in the middle of the new GS 350 range. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to spot the Lexus LFA supercar DNA in the GS 350 F Sport jigsaw â&#x20AC;&#x201C; large mesh side grilles, with central upper and lower grille helping to gulp cooling air into the engine compartment. That, and the daytime running lights, present an aggressive face to oncoming traffic. Air flow is put to work in other ways with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aerodynamic dampingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in which air is brought closer to the body to enhance handling. A clever design of rear spoiler, narrow panel gaps and minimal protrusions add to aerodynamic efficiency.

H

The sporty look is finished off by darkcoloured 10-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels incorporating black Lexus â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; logo centres. The Lexus F Sport is a four-door, five-seat sedan/coupe, whose interior includes matching door and seat upholstery. While occupants settle into 20-way electrically adjustable front bucket seats, the driver can take advantage of an LFA-inspired dimpled steering wheel and gear knob, and aluminium pedals and dashboard trim. The 3.5-litre engine of the GS 350 produces 27 per cent more power and 22 per cent more torque than the previous Lexus GS 300, plus improved fuel economy and lower carbon dioxide emissions. The GS 350 is capable of reaching 100km/h from rest in 6.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 235km/h. Expect F Sport fuel consumption to drop under eight litres per 100 kilometres cruising on the open road. But in built-up areas the V6 can take care of close to double that volume of fuel.

Son of supercar: Lexus GS 350 F Sport, with LFA DNA.

Last term earns Hawks vital win BY ROY WARD RINGWOOD Hawks will look to seal a place in the Big V state championship men’s grand final at home this Saturday night. The Hawks took a 1-0 lead in their best of three semi-final series against Corio Bay Stingrays on Saturday night with a 98-91 win at Corio Bay and now hope to sweep the series when they host game two at Maroondah Indoor Stadium. After winning 13 straight games heading into the play-offs, the Hawks struggled in the opening half before a spirited last term earned them a tough road win. Import guard Skyler Bowlin (25 points and 12 rebounds) and veteran guard Matt Snowball (18 points and five assists) led the way for the Hawks, who trailed by four at half-time. Hawks coach Ken Harrington said his side had escaped back to Melbourne with a vital win and had to be much better to close out the series. “We shot the ball poorly, had numerous defens-

ive lapses and still got a huge win on the road,’’ Harrington said. “Give a lot of credit to Skyler and Snowy, they carried us tonight. ‘‘We need a better team performance next game but we will be ready.” The Hawks will enjoy the support of the expected large crowd on Saturday. If the Hawks can keep Stingrays stars Jason Reardon and Eric Williams in check, they would be expected to win their way through to their third grand final series in four years. But for Harrington, it is just game two on his mind. “We will have a tough week at practice, watch some film and be a better team next week. It won’t guarantee us a win but we will be playing smarter, I hope,’’ he said. If the Hawks lose game two, the two teams will play the third game at Maroondah Indoor Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The winner of the series will play either Eltham Wildcats or Waverley Falcons in the grand final, with the Wildcats leading that series 1-0 following

a 90-74 win at Waverley Stadium on Sunday. In state championship women, Ringwood Hawks just squeezed into the play-offs and will be fighting for their season against Melbourne Tigers this Saturday night. The Lady Hawks lost 79-59 to the Tigers at Maroondah Indoor Stadium on Saturday night in game one of their best of three series. The series now moves to the Tigers home court at Oakleigh Recreation Centre with game two on Saturday at 8.30pm. Hawks coach Tim Mottin said the team had many areas to improve on for game two. “We’ll look at the video, but know there are several areas we can improve.’’ If the Hawks women win on Saturday night, the teams will return to Oakleigh on Sunday for the third encounter.

place on the south conference ladder with just a visit to Brisbane remaining in the Cobras’ season. The Raiders are locked in first place in the conference, meaning they will host the game. The winner will go into the conference grand final and the loser drop into the preliminary final. On Saturday night, Gemma Kerr (17 points) and Sarah Parsons (15 points, 11 rebounds) led the Cobras to a 65-60 win over Canberra Capitals Academy at Belconnen Stadium, Canberra.

RINGWOOD City fell short once again, losing 2-1 to Old Brighton at Jubilee Park, Ringwood in the FFV provisional league 3 on Saturday. Will Ong scored his seventh goal of the season for City but strikes from Christian Smak and Matt Cameron cancelled out his goal and gave the visitors an important win. City now sits second last, five points ahead of bottom side White Star Dandenong.

clubs on head-to-head records this season. The Cobras beat Canberra Gunners 95-70 on Saturday to keep their play-off chances alive, but with the Chargers beating Frankston Blues now only a major upset would have them progress to the finals. Cobras import Garfield Blair led his side with 23 points and Matt O’Hea added 20. ■ Kilsyth Cobras women will face arch-rivals Knox Raiders in the South East Australian Basketball League south conference major semi-final.

MOOROOLBARK women continued their challenge for the FFV women’s state league 2 south-east title with two wins last week. The Barkers moved back to the top of the ladder with a 3-1 win over Croydon City Arrows on July 30 and then a 7-0 thrashing of Sandringham on Friday night. Barkers star Amy D’Ortenzio passed 40 goals for the season with one goal against Croydon City and a whopping five against Sandringham. D’Ortenzio became the second Barkers player (in either men and women) to score 40 goals, matching Johnny Orr in the 1969 season. The Barkers also set a new women’s club record of 12 games unbeaten to go four points clear at the top, but second-placed Berwick City has two games in hand. The Barkers are guaranteed a top four spot and a place in the finals — which do not decide promotion — but it would be a great shame if this magnificent season were not rewarded with the title. The Barkers women’s next game is an away trip to fourth-placed Ashburton. ■ Mooroolbark men continued their fight to avoid relegation with a 2-2 come-frombehind draw with Old Melburnians in the FFV provisional league 1 south-east on Saturday. Old Melburnians took a 2-0 lead in the 55th minute but as is traditional for Barkers, they finally spring into life when the game is all but beyond them. As the match entered its final 15 minutes, the Barkers ripped the kitchen sink from its moorings and lobbed it squarely at the OM defence. In the 80th minute a cross from the right found Brechen Adams through on goal, and his exquisite chip seemed to clip the bar before rippling down the net to make it 2-1. Then, in stoppage time, Adam Doughty again beat his man on the left wing, crossing for Darren McCandless. His lay-off found Jordan Odd racing in, and he hit a precise shot into the corner of the net to send the Kennel absolutely mental. The goal was followed by a headbutt, a red card and some handbags at 10 paces between the sides. From the ensuing Clausen free kick, Yiannis Christoforou had a chance to grab the glory, but his header was just over, and the points were shared. On balance, a draw was probably fair as both sides created plenty of opportunities. OM stays third, and Barkers stay ninth, but are flirting dangerously with the wrong end of the table. They have eight games to save themselves, starting with a Friday night trip up the hills to fourth-placed Monbulk Rangers . On the last two displays, they certainly won’t die wondering.

IF a last-round game could be both a must-win and a dead rubber then it might be Kilsyth Cobras men’s clash against Brisbane Spartans in Brisbane this Saturday. The Cobras need a win to draw level with Hobart Chargers and Albury-Wodonga Border Bandits. All three sides are battling for the final two spots in the South East Australian Basketball League south conference play-offs. But unless the Chargers or Border Bandits lose, a Cobras win will mean little as they trail both

Three sides jostling at the top WITH two rounds left in the Eastern Football League division 2 season, Montrose and Mooroolbark are locked in battle with Rowville Hawks for the top two spots on the ladder and a second chance in the finals. The Hawks hold a one-game advantage over the two clubs and the Demons hold a far superior percentage. In the ultra-tight division 2 top four only the first two sides get the double chance while the third and fourth placed sides play an elimination semi-final in the first week of the post-season. The Demons look in prime position to take second spot with an easy draw over the last two games, facing Doncaster and Upper Ferntree Gully. The Mustangs play inform Mulgrave this Saturday, then face fourth-placed Donvale in the final round, a clash that could be repeated the following week in the elimination semi-final. Demons coach Brett Johnson said his side was well placed but not getting caught up in finals calculations. ‘We’ve still got a couple of games to go and we can’t look too far ahead,’’ Johnson said. ‘‘We’ll just concentrate on the next match and we’re confident we’ll be able to secure that second spot.’’ Mustangs coach Brett Fisher earlier told the Weekly that he wanted second spot, as the double chance was important to any club’s finals campaign.

fourth place, it’s all about hitting form at the right time. ‘‘It doesn’t make too much difference but we would like to go in with a double chance. It’s just about hitting form at right time of year.’’ Johnson said the Demons knew the finals campaign would be difficult but had a strong knowledge of all sides, especially the Mustangs and Hawks, who they have played

EFL division 2: Rowville 56 points, 174.81 per cent; Montrose 52, 180.04; Mooroolbark 52, 132.64; Donvale 34, 99.07; Bayswater 32, 115.47; Doncaster East 26, 81.84; Upper Ferntree Gully 24, 76.98; Mulgrave 16, 74.66; Waverley Blues 16, 67.01; Doncaster 12, 70.42.

Resurgent Tigers closing in on finals appearance UPWEY-Tecoma is three wins away from securing a place in the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League finals despite spending a good part of the season on the bottom of the ladder. The Tigers’ second-half resurgence, including a 49-point win over Mt Evelyn on Saturday, leaves them in sixth place with matches against Healesville (home), Wandin (away) and WarburtonMillgrove (home) to go. The ladder has become so tight that just eight points separates third spot from eighth and plenty of clubs will be closely eyeing the Tigers after the club won the premiership last year. Tigers coach Greg Spence said his side had a simple task ahead. ‘‘If we win our last three games then we will make it,’’ Spence said. ‘‘With everyone playing each other during this time we could finish as high as fourth. ‘‘We just have to continue doing we what we are doing. We have started to get our list back in [YAR]

the last few weeks and if we have our best side fit and ready to do anything . . .’’ Spence said the closeness of the league was a sign of its strength. ‘‘I wouldn’t know why it’s this close,’’ he said. ‘‘But I know that last year we were in sixth place going into the second last game, then we snuck in [to the finals] and went all the way. ‘‘It’s amazing for the competition that every side is capable of causing an upset.’’ The Tigers showed their fight by beating Mt Evelyn on Saturday with the match one which could have ended their finals hopes. Spence said he was rapt with the result and paid tribute to the job done by veteran defender Daniel Sheers on Mt Evelyn star recruit Damian Cupido. The former AFL player was kept to one goal and forced into the midfield late in the game. ‘‘Daniel is the best defender I’ve seen at the club,’’ Spence said. ‘‘He was best on ground. He even got himself a goal because when

twice this season. ‘‘It will all come down to who can pull it off on the day,’’ he said. The Demons made light work of Waverley Blues at Mt Waverley Reserve on Saturday, winning by 111 points. The Demons led at each change with Billy Schilling and Marc Watson both kicking four goals and Watson, Sam Goodman and Andrew Haining all in the best players. Johnson said he was also happy to see Dylan Richard get through his first game after a knee injury. Andrew Knee also returned from eight weeks out. In division 1, Lilydale continued its impressive end to the season with a 12-point win over Blackburn on Saturday. Falcons coach Simon Rourke pledged to play as many young players as he could in the final rounds of the season and under-19s forward Callum Morison kicked four goals. Ben Stephens and Jake Taylor kicked two goals each. Ryan Breese, Ash Davies and Ben Power were named best players.

Cupido went into the midfield Daniel followed.’’ The Tigers face bottom side Healesville this Saturday but will go in taking nothing for granted after their one-point win over finals aspirant Monbulk on Saturday. ‘‘Healesville gave us a touch-up earlier in the season. That was our lowest point of the year,’’ Spence said. ‘‘So the boys will be keen to turn that result around. But this year you can’t disrespect anyone and Healesville is a proud club that is fighting off relegation so they will have a lot to play for as well.’’ YVMDFL division 1: Gembrook Cockatoo 52 points, 151.58 per cent; Woori Yallock 48, 130.23; Wandin 32, 92.82; Monbulk 28, 108.75; Olinda Ferny Creek 28, 82.44; Upwey Tecoma 26, 85.95; Emerald 24, 105.74; Warburton Millgrove 24, 96.17; Mount Evelyn 20, 88.32; Healesville 18, 79.28.
