Game Review

Carlton brought up their 13th straight win against the Bombers. What great days!

After a tight opening term 3 goals in 10 minutes from the incomparable "Jezza" gave the Blues a handy advantage and the lead was pushed steadily outwards as the match progressed.

With a 4-5-1 season record the lure of finals action was back on the horizon.

Carlton showed that their great team of talent is at last turning the corner when they crushed Essendon at Windy Hill by 35 points. This was the Blues fourth win of the season, the fourth century against Essendon by them and the fourth century kicked against Essendon in the last five games. It was also Carlton's first "away" (except finals and VFL Park matches) win in the last ten matches. - Football Record.
