Game Review

The previously undefeated Blues travelled down to Arden Street to suffer their first loss of the season. The Blues were blown away in the third quarter with a seven goals to nil outcome that sealed their fate for the day.

League leader Carlton suffered its first defeat of the season to third-placed North Melbourne in a round which brought few shocks. The Blues failed to score goals in the first and third term and its small men, around which its game is centred, were well eclipsed. - Football Record.

"For the record, Saturday's loss was only Carlton's eighth in 48 games since May 1978, when Jesaulenko started the Blues on the way back to the top. (Age May 05)
