Game Review

North down Blues
An unpredictable North Melbourne accounted for Carlton in a tough, slogging game played in deplorable conditions at the Coburg Oval. Although they held a 6-point lead at half time, the Blues faded in the second half and scored only one point. Noel Teasdale, despite strong opposition from John Nicholls, was the inspiration for North. Bernie McCarthy was unbeaten all day at centre half-forward. John Dugdale defended superbly while John Ibrahim and Michael Dowdle snapped up the opportunities around the packs. Sergio Silvagni and John Benetti were consistent for Carlton. Gordon Collis in the centre and Berkeley Cox in attack were the best of the others. North showed a lot of talent and are capable of surprising teams much higher on the ladder. Carlton now face three hard games and their chance of playing in the finals is fading rapidly. - Football Record.
