The game produced a disappointing performance by both sides and wasn't a spectacle to remember. Carlton struggled to a 9 point lead by the last break, and there were was only one goal in the last quarter before a doubtful mark was paid to Moriarty of Essendon late in the game which resulted in the winning goal. Carlton had the bye the previous round.
