A SIX-GOAL-TO-ONEfinal quarter from Edenhope-Apsley kept its unbeaten start to the season alive and dashed the hopes of the Rupanyup faithful at the weekend.

Heading into the last quarter, the Panthers had a 14-point lead and looked as if they might pull off a monumental upset after leading at every change.

However the Saints had other ideas, as they kicked away late in the game to win by 16 points.

Co-coach James Dixon refused to let his team lose, kicking four of his game-high seven goals in the final term as Edenhope-Apsley outscored Rupanyup 39-9.

The Saints were without several regular senior players, but strong performances from reserves Jay Barby, Ben Chadwick and under-17 player George Walker helped get them over the line.

The departing Kevin Wyatt was impressive for Rupanyup in his last outing before moving to Adelaide. Panthers coach Glenn Wyatt said it was a bitter pill for his side to swallow after leading for most of the match. He said the team gained confidence that it could mix it with the top sides in the league.

“We finally got the ball moving the way we wanted to in the game and I think we just ran out of legs a bit at the end,” he said.

“It’s good to know that if they’re on top of the ladder, then we’re not too far away.”

Edenhope-Apsley co-coach Mal Coutts agreed the Panthers had been impressive.

He said Wyatt’s side would be finals contenders this season.

Coutts said the efficient ball-use of Rupanyup had taken his side out of the game early and made them fight for every possession.

“They controlled the footy really well and had loose men everywhere and it was not until the second half that we were able to man-up a bit better and put some pressure on,” he said.

“Last year we were winning by big margins and never really experienced pressure for a lot of the season but we’re learning to win the close games this season and I’ve been impressed by the strength shown by our boys.”

Talking tourism

A tourism advisory group made up of invited members of the community and a tourism officer are part of new plans to drive the visitor dollar in the Wellington local government area.

The new group met this week at the Old Police Station, their vision to form a strategic plan to integrate events and tourist spots.

Lucy White from Destination NSW addressed the meeting.

“The area has to have a strategic plan so it can work better with the state government and Destination NSW,’’ she said.

Mayor of Wellington, Cr Rod Buhr, said the economic benefits of tourism are one of his biggest agendas.

The Wellington Caves complex is currently under review and soon a strategic plan will be revealed which could foreshadow major changes. It is understood these may include some of its assets being privatised.

A television, radio and public relations expert has joined council to help drive the tourism approach.

Anna Charlton believes Wellington is in a good place.

“With Wellington Council’s clear focus on driving tourism in the region and ramping up the social media engagement tools, it’s an exciting time for me personally and professionally to play a part in these developments,” she said.

“My background in public relations and social media strategy development has given me strong grounding for this role and I’m looking forward to the events and growth in the Wellington shire.

“Wellington is a unique community, and shares in many local attractions – and it’s important these messages and local treasures continue to be promoted.”

After relocating to her husband’s family farm at Ballimore, Mrs Charlton has taken on the Media and Tourism Officer maternity relief position for Wellington Council.

“I am originally from near Tamworth in northern NSW, my professional experience and solid background in regional news and tourism, stems from her years of work as a broadcast news reporter for commercial radios stations, ABC radio and Prime 7 television news rooms.’’

More recently Anna has worked as a senior public relations consultant for a national PR firm (Sefton&Associates) specialising in media relations and social media strategy development for both their metropolitan and rural based clients. Anna’s passion is to remain in rural and regional Australia and to continue to promote the diversity and capabilities of its communities.

Seconds from oblivion … but Hawks prevail

RINGWOOD Hawks are back in form after an upset win over undefeated Bulleen Boomers in the Big V state championship men’s competition on Saturday night.
Nanjing Night Net

The reigning champions have struggled for form and fitness in the season’s opening months but rode the hot-shooting of import guard Bryan Dougher to a memorable 88-86 away victory.

Dougher (39 points, 7 rebounds) was looking dangerous and his 16 points in the first half sent his Hawks to the long break with a three-point lead. The Hawks trailed by five at the final change and looked in trouble as they were down six points with two minutes remaining.

Dougher’s pinpoint three point-shooting opened up other scoring opportunities and a strong lay-up followed by a Sam Belt three-pointer had the Hawks within a point. Dougher followed up with two free-throws to hand his side the lead.

The Boomers again missed a crucial shot from the perimeter and the Hawks found captain Willie Weimer in the corner for what looked like a game-sealing three-pointer. His shot rattled in and out, but to the horror of the Hawks a foul was called on a desperate Belt in the battle for the rebound.

The Boomers nailed their two foul shots to tie the game with 14 seconds remaining.

Weimer aggressively took the ball hard in the final play but his floating lay-up sailed towards the hoop before it bounced to the left.

Out of nowhere, Dougher launched himself in to the air, tipping the ball back in to the basket and sealing the Hawks their biggest win of the season.

Hawks coach Ken Harrington praised his players for their determination. “Bryan was aggressive and fearless and basically refused to let us lose.”

The Hawks will need to win again when they host Sherbrooke Suns at Maroondah Stadium this Saturday night at 8pm.

■ The Hawks women firmed at favourites for the Big V state championship women’s title with a thumping 65-33 win over Bulleen Boomers.

Straddie camp sites upgrade

PLANS are afoot to upgrade North Stradbroke Island’s eight camp grounds.

Straddie Camping, which manages the sites on behalf of the island’s Quandamooka people, will meet to consider ways to improve the grounds. The decided will be unveiled at a tourism summit, organised by Redland City Council, on the island on Tuesday, May 14.

There are 20 semi-permanent cabins, but no houses, at the island’s holiday parks, which are at Adder Rock, Amity Point, Cylinder, Home Beach, Flinders Beach, Main Beach, Adams Beach and Bradbury’s Beach.

Straddie Camping chairman Cameron Costello said there were no plans to build permanent housing at any of the sites.

Mr Costello, who is also Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation chairman, said Straddie Camping had performed well since taking over management of the sites from the council in November.

“Straddie Camping is looking at ways to upgrade these existing cabins to modernise and improve our tourism product for visitors,” Mr Costello said.

“Any improvements to existing facilities will comply with all relevant terms and conditions of our management agreement set out with our trustee, Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation.”

Council Community and Customer Services general manager Louise Rusan said Straddie Camping would have to apply to council to change the use of the camp sites or erect semi-permanent housing but council had not received any change-of-use applications.

“The exercise of native title rights is subject to traditional laws and customs practised by the Quandamooka people and is also subject to all other Australian laws, including the underlying land tenure and related building, planning and environmental regulations and local laws that cover North Stradbroke Island.”

Not enough power

The fishies stormed out to a 40-10 lead in the second half but the Cowboys got it together in the final half hour, coach Seaun Stanley admitting defensive lapses cost them the game.

“We left our run far too late and really our defence wasn’t good enough,” he said.

Lock Jopi Jui opened Cyms account in the first few minutes barging over but Wellington’s ever present Norm West levelled things up not long after after a kick through landed well fo him.

Corey Cox who had a strong game for Cyms then shoved off Cowboys defenders to go over in the corner and then landed a sensational sideline conversion.

Jui scored again and for a while the Dubbo side were dominant despite Eric Fernando racing over from a well timed Justin Toomey White pass.

Corey Stanley’s pin-point kick to the corner had winger Jye Chapman chasing hard and his try had Cyms ahead 22-10 at the break.

After the break Bobby Gordon struck outwide and Cox charged over easily for his double with Chris Thompson chiming in for a comfortable cross, at 40-10 Wellington were in deep trouble.

But Cowboys captain Seaun Stanley then changed the momentum pushing off defenders to score and Corey Ashby also impressive.

Justin Toomey White also managed to gain points after striding through a tired Cyms defence and Eric Fernando grabbed a double and it was just six points the difference with a few minutes to go but Wellington had left its whirlwind run home too late and the fishies ran out winner 40-34.

DUBBO CYMS 40 ( Cox, Jui 2, Gordon, Thompson, Chapman tries, Cox 6 goals ) defeated Wellington 34 ( Fernando 2, N West, S Stanley, Ashby, Toomey White tries, N West 5 goals)

Reserve Grade : Dubbo Cyms 32 Wellington 10
