Game Review

The fifth and sixth-placed teams on the ladder met in this vital clash at Windy Hill, and it didn't take long for the fireworks to start. While Essendon got right on top in the second quarter, Carlton's volatile Ricky McLean floored a couple of Bombers and ended up on report. Essendon won easily and slammed the lid on Carlton's faint finals' hopes, with their own rugged full-forward Ted Fordham kicking 7 goals.

Ted Fordham kicked seven goals in Essendon's seven-goal defeat of Carlton. Sergio Silvagni and John Nicholls kicked three goals each for the Blues and were amongst their best players. - Football Record.


Three of Ted Forham's seven goals were expensive for Essendon as they were kicked out of the ground and "disappeared," at a cost to the club of $11.00 each. Ted kicked them from the goal square at the outer end and the balls went over the fence and down the adjoining street.
