Game ReviewWhat a game! The expectation was high all week – this year’s trendsetters versus last year’s Premiers. This year’s clear best team versus a team that you could never, ever, write-off. The Eagles were a formidable team in the early to mid 1990’s, with a hard, tight midfield and defence and explosive Peter Matera on the wing. There was no way you could miss this game, it was going to have everything.
And it did. Dean Rice bobbing up with 3 key goals. Earl Spalding delivering the perfectly timed (and legal) shirt-front on Eagle Champion Guy McKenna to demonstrate his commitment to the game.
Key players were Rice, Scott Camporeale in one of his best games in his debut year with 19 stats and 2 goals, Anthony Koutoufides and Mil Hanna. Adrian Whitehead had limited game time but kicked 2 timely goals for the Blues from the forward pocket. In a game where their defence kept us close, and our team was limited to less than 300 stats for a rare time in the season, the Blues were hard and fierce and came away with the win.
Ron De Iulio's season finished when he was crunched by Stephen Kernahan in a marking contest early in the first quarter.
This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 1990's. For more games like this, please click here.
