Game Review

How's this for a comeback? Carlton were 4 goals behind going into the last quarter, and more than doubled their score in that quarter, whilst keeping the Demons to 2 points, to snatch the game. Carlton had managed to start the season with 2 wins a row and were in 4th spot, behind Essendon, Geelong and Richmond. Also making comebacks were Horrie Clover from injury after playing his last game in Round 9, 1924 and Alex Duncan from being a captain coach at Stratford in 1925.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 4th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 128.7.
