Clinton Wines in the centre, Carlton’s star full-forward Ken Baxter, and nippy rover Herb ‘Stumpy’ Turner ended up with six goals apiece, and at the final bell the margin in favour of the Blues was a whopping 94 points. It was an emphatic victory, setting a record margin that wasn’t topped for 21 years.
After the game there was further joy when news came through that Footscray and North Melbourne (third and fourth respectively) had both suffered shock defeats. Suddenly, Carlton was well and truly back in the finals race.
