Game Review

Footscray full-forward Bill Wood seemed to have won this game off his own boot for the Bulldogs, when he took a strong mark right on the final bell, and lined up another shot on goal from only ten metres out on a slight angle. Although his team was four points down, he had already booted seven goals, and this seemed the easiest attempt of them all. But to the horror of every Footscray fan, his kick slewed off his boot and missed the big sticks, and Carlton got home by three points!
