Both teams were coming off losses the previous week, and although the home side Geelong were strong pre-game favourites, Carlton was given some chance of causing an upset.
It was not to be however, and the Cats led at every change before running out convincing winners by ten goals, despite some wayward kicking in the third term. Doug Wade and John Sharrock each kicked four goals for the Cats, while no Blue managed more than one.
