1 Peninsular Wrap on Wed Dec 08, 2010 7:03 pm



Peninsula Gift 4th December 2010
The Victorian Athletic League running ventured out to the Peninsula at the
Frankston Park Oval. Conditions were very warm and we witnessed some
fantastic running throughout the day. We thank the Peninsula committee for all
their efforts to put this event on.
The summary of each event is listed below.
70m Open
The 70m Open event was taken out in brilliant fashion the Bruce Gulliver trained
Tom Templeton. Running off his tough mark of 3m Tom smashed the field in what
was a very impressive first up win. Tom recorded a winning time of 7.67.
Finishing second was Edward Ware, the New South Wales visitor ran off 4m and
close up third was the consistent Matthew Mifsud who is getting closer to a win.
120m Women's/Veterans
The 120m Women's/Veterans event was won by the local runner, Matthew Boyes.
The Wally Meechan trained runner pounced on the field half way down the
straight and he was never in doubt of victory. Brendan Boyle, who has been in
pretty good form of late ran on well late to grab second and Glenn Ross was also
and handy run finishing in third off his 4m handicap. The winning time for the
event was 13.51
120m Gift
The 120m Gift was again a great race and a fantastic performance by the winner.
The Bruce Gulliver trained Matt Carter, who was running off the very tight mark
of 3m, saluted in the Gift in a winning time of 12.82. It was a great run from Matt
as he rounded up the field and drew clear over the concluding stages for a most
impressive win. Bros Kelly ran a great race from his 6m handicap to finish in
second and the evergreen Peter Walsh slipped into third position.
300m Women's/Veterans
The 300m Women's/Veterans was another keenly contested affair. The Nick
Fiedler trained, Alice Platten was the one who finished the best. She made her
winning move at the 150m mark and managed to run down Dennis (Twinkle toe)
Hughes who ran a much improved race to finish second, a win is not far away for
Dennis. Essendon runner Tamara Hamond also finished on well to grab third
position. The winning time for the event was 36.30.

400m Open
The 400m Open was won by the Todd Ireland trained, Cam Dunbar, running off
21m, he held on from an unlucky David Williamson who looked to get checked
coming around the home turn, a win is near for David. Also battling on well was
Wayne Dalziel who has been in good form over the 400m and 800m distance. The
winning time for the 400m was 48.50.
400m Novice
The 400m Novice Series is once again producing some good results from our
young up and coming athletes. In what was one of the closest finishes of the day
is was Nathan McConchie who prevailed for his first Victorian Athletic League win.
He ran a great race off his 25m mark and won in an impressive winning time of
48.22. Jack Dooley was very close up second while Glenn Cooper was also an inch
away in third position. Look for those runners to break their novice status in the
coming weeks.
800m Open
The 800m Open final was a great two horse war. Greg Hilson and Craig Harris
cleared the field with 200m to go, Dominic Hoskins came out of the pack to chase
the leaders but couldn't quite get to them at any stage. With 50m to go Craig
Harris hit the lead and looked set for victory but Greg Hilson made one late
challenge and managed to nail Craig on the line. It was a great finish. Dominic
Hoskins held third and a win shouldn't be to far away for him. The winning time
was 1.54.
1600m Open
The 1600m Open was a good finish, but it was the Les Williams trained, Leon
Brooks (off his 285m mark), who strode to the lead with 200m to go and
managed to hold off the consistent Jeremy Grey and the fast finishing Barry
Tossol. Look out for Barry to salute in one of the bigger distance races.
The winning time for the event was 4.15.
Our next event is the Northcote Gift on Sunday 12th December.
