Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : February 11th 2009
42 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, February 12, 2009 SPORT www.innerwestweekly.com.au Oh stays in the tournament money Sarah Oh at the ANZ Ladies Masters last week. TOPPING off her great win at this year's LG Bing Lee tournament, Sarah Oh has picked up another handy cheque, this time for $5860 at last week's ANZ Ladies Masters tournament. The Homebush golfer shot rounds of 72, 70, 76 and a superb final round of six-under-par 66 to finish at four under par. Oh's 284 total landed her in a tie for 20th position. Last week's earnings come on top of her $18,750 cheque for winning the LG Bing Lee NSW Women's Open earlier this year. Sarah also tied in sixth position in the New Zealand Women's Open. But it was Australia's Katherine Hull who took first place in the ANZ Ladies Masters at Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast on Sunday. She cruised to a five-stroke victory, confirming her status as one of Australia's fastest-rising golf stars. Sharks and marlins in the Harbour JACK SCRINE Assistant Editor, Modern Fishing THERE have been a number of shark sightings inside the Har- bour this week, with anglers re- porting losing fish to the 'taxmen', specifically bronze whalers and bulls, close to the boat. Common- sense should prevail when dealing with these creatures to avoid unwanted interaction. Live and let live. Meanwhile, the marlin continue to venture closer and closer to Sydney, with reports this week of some anglers capturing good-sized fish within casting distance of the shores and stones of northern Sydney. The big slimy mackerel still hanging around the Harbour will prove to be an excellent source of bait, live or stitched. The marlin fishing off Sydney is improving every week, so get out there! It's worthwhile checking out the sea surface temperatures before mak- ing a trip out wide though, as you will likely not experience so much as a follow or rise if the tempera- ture is too low in the water you're covering. The Clifton Gardens wharf, while very busy, has had some notable kingfish catches this week, with the big fish going to those with boats, who elected to anchor nearby to find success. If you're land-based, try getting to the wharf before sunrise to beat the crowds -- there are some big fish available from this hard- fished point. The elusive and highly prized jewfish have been taken regularly in recent days by those in the know. Don't expect these mulloway gurus to divulge any of their secret spots to you, though. Success on these silver demons in Sydney Harbour is a matter of putting in the hours and finding the likely looking holes and under- water crevices for yourself. Drift live baits or squid strips into these jewfish hidey holes, or flick large, bright soft plastic shads for success on these Har- bour jewels. Estuary anglers can expect the usual mixed bag of whiting, flat- head, bream and trevally from their favourite spots. Try walk-the-dog style surface lures or poppers for some seriously exhilarating surface ac- tion. Three times a champ LANA LAM Vic Darchinyan arrives at Sydney Airport on Tuesday with another world title. Picture: BRETT COSTELLO CHISWICK'S Vic ''Raging Bull'' Darchinyan has again proved to the world his fast-talking outside the ring is matched by his speedy boxing prowess inside. Darchinyan defended his IBF superflyweight world title on Saturday in an intense bout with Mexico's Jorge Arce in Los Angeles. By winning the fight, described by some as a ''one-sided slugfest'', the Armenian-born Darchinyan held onto his trifecta of superflyweight world titles. He holds the International Boxing Feder- ation, World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association titles in the 115-pound division. The 11th round technical knockout was called after the referee and ringside doctor decided the cuts to Arce's eyes and head too bad for him to continue. He now has 32 wins (26 knockouts), one loss and one draw. In the weeks leading up to the match, Darchinyan had promised to annihilate his opponent. Darchinyan, who trains at his gym in Marrickville, arrived back in Sydney on Tuesday and conceded his opponent threw some unexpected punches. ''He surprised me. I didn't expect a fight from him like this,'' he said. ''(Arce) is a good fighter. I hit him with some good shots, but he kept coming back.'' While the bout was not as aggressive as some had expected, it was a show of Darchinyan's speed in the ring. ''I would have liked to knock him out cold, but this is OK. I am happy. I feel great.'' playafl.com.au NAB AFL Auskick Junior Yo u t h Senior AFL Superstar Join your junior AFL club for 2009 Register with your local club Concord Cats February 15, 11am-2pm IGA Supermarket, Tennyson Road, Breakfast Point Dea dml Drummoyne Power February 15, 11am-4pm Drummoyne Sports Club ewtas 0414 847 959 Newtown Swans February 26, 4-6pm Alan Davidson Oval, Sydney Park, Sydney Park Road, Alexandria Jon Dyster 0428 425 905 au Wester n Suburbs Magpies February 15, 11am-2pm Picken Oval, Hampton Street, Croydon Park Nick Miller 9744 7791 firstname.lastname@example.org ern to a Sydney Swans match at ANZ Stadium in 2009 for all first-year club registrants -- see aflnswact.com.au for details. free family pass an Lee 0414 660 959 email@example.com Drummoy Darren Le d @bigpond.net.au Jon Dyster 0428 4259 firstname.lastname@example.org dlewtas@
