Game ReviewA big crowd at Victoria Park certainly got it's money's worth as both Carlton and Collingwood kicked the ton of points in this 24-point loss by the Blues. Collingwood legend Gordon 'Nuts' Coventry tore holes in Carlton's defence, and ended the match with seven goals, but Carlton captain Horrie Clover was even more impressive, kicking seven of his own from fewer opportunities. Collingwood won the game with a six-goals to three third quarter, to establish an advantage they held to the final bell.
It took 27 seasons of VFL football to produce a match where both sides scored 100 points (Carlton vs Fitzroy, round 1, 1924) but just another four games until it happened again here.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 90.6.
