Game Review

The Blues recovered from a pasting by Essendon the previous week, to crush Melbourne by 5 goals at Princes Park, on the day when extrovert Tasmanian ruckman "Percy" Jones began his celebrated career. On the back of a huge opening quarter, Carlton dominated the Demons throughout and cruised home for a welcome win.

Adrian Gallagher kicked five goals in Carlton's 29-point win over Melbourne. John Nicholls and John Goold also did well for the Blues, while Ken Rowe tried hard for the Demons. - Football Record.
