Game Review"It was like rubbing salt into the wound...John Goold at Centre Half Back completely blanketed St Kilda ace forward Darrel Baldock. Baldock tried everything but could not put the rangy Goold off his game. Finally, in desperation, Baldock took advantage of the blind side of the umpire and held Goold by one arm when going for a mark. Goold simply put out his other arm and dragged down a great one-hander", Unknown writer.
Carlton took on second place St Kilda and doubled their score; taking second place in return.
The statistics from the paper of the day demonstrate that Garry Crane was a star on the day with 32 possessions. Kekovich continued his fine season with 4 majors, our only double goal kicker.
