Game Review

The Leader (June 26) said O'Brien captained the team
The scoreline suggests that this was one of those games where one team - our opponent - snuck away early and was never headed, but this game is note-worthy as it saw Magpie champion Gordon Coventry kick his 600th league goal.

Edric Bickford kicks two goals on debut for the Blues.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 7th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 98.1.
