Game ReviewCarlton's winning streak of four games came to an end with this 1-point defeat by Geelong at Kardinia Park. With the aid of a freshening breeze, the Cats kicked 3.3 to one solitary point by the Blues in the last quarter, and got home by the smallest-possible margin.
Despite the loss, Carlton clung to fifth - equal on points with South Melbourne and Geelong.
Geelong and Carlton fought out a close contest, with the Cats kicking three goals to one point in the final quarter to win the match. Bill Ryan and Denis Marshall did well for Geelong, while Wes Lofts and Bryan Quirk were the Blues best. - Football Record.
Scores were level with seconds to go when Blues' half back flanker John Gill accidentally kicked the ball off the ground and it went through for a behind - to Geelong.
