Game Review

Absolutely awesome. The Blues not only turned up to play, turned up to play well as they demolished the team that had headed the ladder all year. Carlton overpowered the Eagles in both midfield and defence, and had the key forward and support cast to pull away with the win.

Led brilliantly by Greg Williams with an astonishing 45 possessions, including 28 handballs, and the regular midfield cast of Brett Ratten (26 possessions), Barry Mitchell (27 possessions) and Craig Bradley (29 possessions), the Blues strangled the Eagles and earned almost 100 more touches.

The Captain’s 6 goals were pivotal, but Tom Alvin’s 3 and Mitchell’s 2 were also important as the Blues turned the season on it’s ear with only a few rounds to go.

The best of the goals was a banana from 50 metres by Craig Bradley in the first quarter. After his great run, and a shepherd by Andrew McKay against Peter Matera, the ball just beat a desperate Glen Jakovich lunge. This was a highlight of Carlton's second last game at Princes Park for 1994.

This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 1990's. For more games like this, please click here.
