Game Review

The Blues would celebrate John Nicholls' 300th VFL match by crunching Essendon at Princes Park.

Carlton showed their supremacy over Essendon by winning their 11th game well, but had no answer to the talented Blues, who scored 133 points - the same as they did when the Bombers played at Princes Park last year. Young Graeme Schultz, who came to Essendon from Warracknabeal as a full forward kicked five goals in his first game for 1973 with the senior team. - Football Record.
