Game Review

Kicking with the aid of a strong wind off Corio Bay, Carlton trampled Geelong in the final quarter, but just couldn't kick straight when it mattered. From 28 points down, the Blues stormed home - keeping the Pivotonians scoreless, but managing only 2.8 from ten shots - and lost by 8 points. It was a costly loss, dropping the Blues to sixth (with a percentage of 78.2) and into the danger of losing touch with the top four.
