Game Review

A margin of 66 points in this era constituted a thrashing. Carlton annihilated the Pivotonians - who had only won one out of five games for 1918 - to boost the percentage and move back into third place.

Umpire Fox took ill at half-time and was replaced by a soldier plucked from the crowd. The Blues 10 goal to 2 second half suggests he did an admirable job.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 125.9.
