Carlton’s win over the ladder-leading Magpies was their third in a row, lifting the Blues to equal second on the ladder with Fitzroy, just a meagre 2 points away from top spot. George Challis (destined to fall in France some 13 months later) played a magnificent game, generally regarded as the best of his career. His performance helped offset the efforts of star Magpie full-forward Dick Lee, who bagged 9 goals.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 112.3.
J. Clinton with whitewash brush in hand completed the job.
The Winner sporting newspaper said of debutant Billy Robinson; "Robinson half back flank did exceptionally well for a beginner and promises to develop into a very fine player."
A silver shield had the following inscription: -
'Carlton Football Club presents to R. Lee this ball to commemorate the unique feat of kicking nine goals against Carlton. 7/6/15.'
The presentation was much appreciated by the Collingwood Club."
(Punch, June 17 1915 p42)
Lee kicked the first 7 goals, Kerley the eighth, and Lee the ninth and tenth.
