Game Review

This was a game of contrasting emotions for the Carlton faithful.

First, Stephen Silvagni soared impossibly high over Collingwood's Craig Starcevich to take the undisputed Mark of the Year, then Richard Dennis and Warren McKenzie both suffered serious season ending knee injuries.

And to compound the pain, we lost by 23 points after being 2 points up within 6 minutes of the final siren.

Carlton on the rebound and desperate to regain a place in the top three, is a feared opponent and ut threw everything at Collingwood at the MCG in the finals-like atmosphere. When the nemesis of the Magpies Wayne Johnston, sent a booming torpedo through for the goal which regained the lead for Carlton late in the final term, it looked as though the League titleholder would emerge victorious after a pressure-packed encounter. The Magpies were able to quickly snatch the lead back and then the scent of victory sent them into a frenzy, the destroyed Carlton in the dying minutes. - Tony Greenberg Inside Football.
