Lambs five wickets destroys Seagulls "IndyWatch Feed Geelong"

By Mark Heenan

Collendina won a low scoring contest over rivals Barwon Heads in their back-to-back two-day game at Collendina.
It was a vital game for Collendina after its six-wicket loss to Anglesea in the season opener on 14 October.
Collendina coach Corey Walter said it was a critical victory early in season in the expanded 12-team BPCA A Grade competition.
I said to the boys before play on day two it is pretty much a 12-point game, Walter said.
It was huge for us and it was pleasing to get a win on the board.
Batting first, the Cobras were bowled out for 148 from 64 overs on day one.
Corey Walter top-scored with 54 and shared in a 71-run third wicket stand with younger brother Nathan (48).
Seagull Michael Fallon was the pick of the bowlers with 4/39 from 19 overs.
Resuming on day two at 1/10, the Cobras rolled Barwon Heads for only 85 from 60.3 overs.
It was deja vu for the visitors after Barwon Heads were bowled out for 91 chasing 101 for victory against in the last seasons A Grade grand final at Portarlington.
Cobra stalwart Charlie Lamb was the chief destroyer with 5/24 from 22.3 overs.
Fellow Collendina opening bowler Jye Hearps took 2/38 from 25 overs, including the prized scalp of Seagull captain Sam Schaller for a duck.
Corey Walter finished with 2/14 from eight overs.
Seagull opening batsman Sam Herbison top-scored with 32.
Collendina were without star pair Ben Ricardo (back injury) and Andy Higgins, who was unavailable.
The Cobras will now meet Inverleigh in Round 3 in a two-day game at Inverleigh on Saturday.
The winless Barwon Heads face Jan Juc at home this Saturday after their 0-2 start to season.
Collendina B Grade captain Eddie Ellwood scored a timely half-century in his sides narrow nine-run one-day victory over Barwon Heads at RT Fuller Oval on Saturday 21 October.
Ellwood made 64 as the Cobras were all bowled out for 147 from 38.2 overs after Collendina won the toss and batted first.
Craig Goodger contributed 22 with the bat.
In reply, Barwon Heads fell 10 runs short of victory after they made 8/138 from 40 overs.
Ryan Binder top-scored for the home side with 26.
Cobra bowler Daniel McManus was the leading wicket taker with his figures of 4/31 from eight overs.
Barwon Heads defeated Collendina by seven wickets in their C Grade one-day match at Bellarine Secondary Colleges Ocean Grove campus on Saturday.
Batting first the Cobras compiled 5/161 from 40 overs, Matt Gibbon top-scored with 53.
In reply, Barwon Heads finished at 3/174 from 37 overs and won with three overs to spare.
Seagull batsman Ande Santilli guided his side to victory with an unbeaten 80.

Great start to season by Cobras "IndyWatch Feed Geelong"

Collendina vs Ocean Grove
The Collendina Under 15s hosted crosstown rivals Ocean Grove to kick off season 2017/18 in a one day clash. Cobras captain Xavier Norman won the toss and elected to bat on a perfect morning for cricket. Norman and Izaak Terhorst opened the batting and were very solid. They put on a 58-run opening stand before Terhorst was dismissed for a fine 28. This was the only wicket to fall in the Cobras 25 overs. Norman was eventually retired for a well made 31. Sam Donegan contributed an aggressive 10 runs before the Cobras innings was closed with a score of 1/92.
Ocean Groves opening stand was also strong along with the Cobras bowling. Brodie Muscat and Charlie Every opened the bowling and were good but without success. Sam Donegan got the first breakthrough with the score on 67, then Muscat in his second spell took one wicket. Ocean Grove passed the Cobras total in the last over ending on 2/99. A solid first up performance from the Cobras with room for improvement.
Collendina vs Corio
Collendina played host to Corio in this Round 2 one-day grading game. A win was needed by the Cobras after a first round loss. Xavier Norman won his second toss in a row and elected to bat. The runs flowed early against an under-manned Corio. Norman had to be retired again for a well-made 32. Norman was well supported by Sam Donnegan (34 ret), Max Mclachlan (22 no) and Ollie Northam (21). The Cobras reached a very competitive 4/143 after their 25 overs.
The defence of that score started well with all bowlers being very economical. Nick Gibbon took 2/2, Sam Donegan 1/10, Max McLaclan 1/8, Spencer Bryan 1/10 and Xavier Norman 1/0. Corio was dismissed for 54. A great win as they head into town next week to take on Manifold Heights.

Proud honour for Demon rookie Anna "IndyWatch Feed Geelong"

By Mark Heenan

New Melbourne player Anna Teague became the first Ocean Grove-raised female footballer to earn a prized AFLW rookie contract last week.
Teague, 29, said it was an honour to be drafted as the first AFLW player from Ocean Grove.
I hadnt thought of it in that sense that I am the first Ocean Grove AFLW female footballer, Teague told the Voice.
Now that you verbalise it, it feels pretty damn special it is quite an honour now that there is going to be a senior Ocean Grove womens team coming up next season.
Teague, a primary school teacher, described the moment on Friday, October 20, when she phoned Melbourne AFLW List Manager Todd Patterson, a call which changed her life. At the time the Grade 3/4 teacher was teaching a maths class at Holy Spirit School in Manifold Heights.
I was aware I would be getting a call either way if I was drafted or not, Teague said.
I let the kids know I was waiting for some important phone calls.
My kids were sitting down to do a maths test and I raced out to get another teacher to come in.
Yeah I gave Todd (Patterson) a call and he asked me if I had been following the rookie draft I hadnt been obviously I was in class.
He just said to me Welcome to the Melbourne Footy Club and I was in shock and shaking.
Teague joins her Geelong VFLW team-mates Lily Mithen, Richelle Cranston and fellow Demon rookie Erin Hoare at Melbourne AFLW in 2018.
She finished third in the Geelong VFLW best and fairest this year.
It is a remarkable transition for Teague, who only switched from basketball to football less than 12 months ago.
She is a former Geelong Supercats basketball captain and the youngest of seven children who started playing basketball with the Ocean Grove Breakers at age 11.
Her brother-in-law is former Melbourne AFL coach Mark Neeld, a four-time premiership coach at Ocean Grove from 2000-03.

Craig Hodges rink of Brett Irvine, Chris Price and Shaun Myers also had to fight hard to win, eventually getting up 24 to 20.

Negative skew "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

First-timers surge

It's been obvious that first homebuyers have been pouring back into the major housing markets since the beginning of July.

The housing finance figures, although to date only running to the end of August, confirm as much.

The September and October figures will warrant watching closely when they are finally reported. 

This is potentially only part of the story, though, with many parents now helping their offspring onto the housing ladder. 

Some parents may be cash buyers, while others may simply be financing purchases themselves. 

'Negative skewness'

It was pointed out on the Property Chat forum that although the median auction result in Sydney remained very high on Saturday at $1,295,000, the average or mean result was considerably lower at a shade under $1 million. 

Compare this with the same weekend last year when the mean value of properties sold at Sydney auctions was far higher at well above $1.3 million.

There's a similar trend afoot in Melbourne, albeit not nearly as pronounced.

What gives? 

When the mean is lower than the median - such as was the case in Sydney's auction results this weekend - this indicates a left...
