Game Review

Footscray virtually clinched a finals berth and almost certainly shut the door on the Blues when they comfortably defeated the 'Baggers by 24 points. Carlton's profilgacy in recording 4-20 obviously didn't help their cause.

Failing to goal between late in the first quarter and mid-way through the last left the Blues with far much to do.

John Nicholls had officially retired as a player following Round 18 and Robert Walls was appointed captain.

With the big chance to keep Final Five pressure on Footscray, Carlton threw away the game by kicking 20 behinds to the Bulldogs 8 - this was the eventual team difference. The Blues 4.20 was their worst against any team since round 9, 1971 (Vs Haw. 4.12.36) and lowest against Footscray since 1955 when they managed only 6.7.43 in a game at Princes Park. It was their lowest at the Western Oval since 1951 (4.16.40). - Football Record.
