Game Review

Carlton kicked themselves out of the chance for victory with poor conversion in front of goal, in the last quarter, the Blues dominated with 10 shots to two on goal. But alas for the Blues, it equated to 3 goals 7 behinds to Essendon's 1 goal, 1 behind and a three point loss to the Blues.

Craig Bradley produced a wonderful four quarter display racking up 31 kicks 10 marks and 3 handballs as the Blues mid year revival came to a halt in a thriller at Waverley.
