WA Team Loses to Carlton by 55 Points

Carlton 20-15 (135) Subiaco 12-8 (80)

Too experienced, and superior in every department, Carlton had no trouble in defeating Subiaco (WA) in a match at Carlton yesterday.

Carlton began vigorously, and their splendid co-operation and effective handball gave them immediate control.

Subiaco failed to score in the first quarter, but in the second term, in a burst of brilliant football, they took command, and scored four goals in as many minutes.

E. Rogers, Subiaco's vice-captain, received a trophy from Carlton for the best player in the visiting team.

Goals: Carlton: Garby 6, Turner 3, Conley 2. Sorrell 2, Redmond 2, Bennett 2, Way, Streeter, Davies. Subiaco: Lindsay 4, Williams 3, Hawtin 2, Hickey, Orr, Trenberth.
