Game Review

The Blues would be lucky to escape this game with a win, with the Doggies having more scoring shots and a lot of ball in the forward line. Key Doggie Chris Grant would be dominant but just not be able to kick them through the sticks, with 4 behinds to his name.

For the Blues, Greg Williams was dominant with 35 possessions and 3 goals from the centre. The day would belong to Stephen Kernahan with 7 goals 5 for the match. Occasional player over 1994, Tony Lynn had a great game with 24 possessions. Another story from this game was the heart breaking debut of Peter Green, who would get roughly 5 minutes on the field, miss a tackle (from memory) and be dragged, never to get a possession or back on the field for Carlton. Green wore the #37 and on reserves form deserved a lot better than that single chance at a footy career.

Carlton moved in to 6th place with the win.
