Game Review

.* The Sportsman June 14 (p6) had Morrison scoring the goal.

This was Carlton's best team performance to date in the VFL - but it needed to be, after the previous week's humiliation. We conceded a 25-point lead to the Maroons at quarter time, then outscored the eventual Premiers 4.8 to 1.5 in the last three quarters to be beaten by four points.

Presumably, a strong wind blew down the ground, as a total of 9.14 was kicked to one end, compared to 0.2 at the other.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 61.3.
