Game Review

Aided considerably by Geelong's wayward kicking for goal, the Blues led by four points at three-quarter time in this game at Princes Park. Each side then scored twice in the final term, but the Pivotonians' 2 majors edged out Carlton's 1.1 to get them home by one point.

Carlton stayed in sixth place on the ladder, with a very poor percentage of 69.0.
