Game Review

Carlton were defeated by one point; we just couldn't score in the last quarter and North's Darryl Sutton was their star player with 5 goals. But the shadow of North's Malcolm Blight hung over this game....

This was the final game for Carlton star and dual Premiership Player, Syd Jackson, who would be cleared to Glenelg for the following season.
