Game Review

The centre of the ground was water-logged and play for most of the day was around the wings. The Blues' ruck was winning and rover Albert 'Mick' Price was the beneficiary and provided drive into the forward line. Arch Shields passed to Creswell 'Mickey' Crisp who bought up the first goal. A few minutes later Jack Wrout and Harry Vallence combined for Harry Vallence to score the second goal. Hawthorn replied with their first. Ron Cooper and Harry Vallence added another two goals. Two late goals by Hawthorn reduced Carlton's lead to 10 points at quarter time. 4.5 - 3.1
The heavy ground prevented good play and for the first ten minutes it was just a scramble. Don McIntyre and Norm Cashin were playing well and Arch Shields with a long kick bought up Carlton's fifth goal. Good play by Jim Francis and Creswell 'Mickey' Crisp to Harry Vallence enabled him to score the sixth goal for a handy lead. Don McIntyre and Jim Francis were starring on the back line and the Mayblooms were finding it difficult to pass them. Carlton then added another four goals via Harry Vallence, Creswell 'Mickey' Crisp, Horrie Bullen, and Albert 'Mick' Price before Hawthorn managed another goal. At half time the Blues led by 39 points, 10.8 - 4.5
Hawthorn harrassed the Blues, and the pressure their backs applied, led to the Carlton forwards registering just five behinds. Later in the term the Blues' forwards dominated, but this time they were inaccurate and their total score for the quarter was just eleven behinds. The Blues however led by 40 points, 10.19 - 5.9
Any hope the visitors entertained at three quarter time was blown away when Albert 'Mick' Price snapped a goal. This was followed by Jack Wrout who kicked two goals, and then singles to Jack Hale and Jim Park, the last four goals were all drop kicked. Five goals in the first ten minutes of the final quarter put the result of the game beyond doubt.
The Blues ran out easy, if inaccurate winners by 51 points, 15.24 - 8.11

At the end of this round Carlton were in 6th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 114.6.
