Game Review

With little left to play for, Carlton suffered a rare loss to St Kilda at the Junction Oval.

The Saints brilliant first quarter set up the win. In the second term Carlton bombarded the forward line, and only the Blues inaccuracy prevent it from taking the lead. The second half was fairly even with both backlines on top. It was anyone's game up until the final bell and the home side hung on for a five point win.
