Game Review

Carlton’s topsy-turvy season continued when the Blues travelled to Windy Hill and beat the Bombers by 15 points in a game “packed with incidents.” Although both sides were smarting from last-start defeats, Essendon was heavily favoured at their home ground.

But Carlton’s defence – led by Ollie Grieve and Bert Deacon in the key posts – gave the Bomber forwards neither space nor time from the opening bounce. At full-back, the battle between Grieve and champion John Coleman was resumed, with honours shared. Coleman kicked four goals, but the rest of the Essendon forwards were well-held. Carlton’s rovers Fred Stafford and Jack Mills were brilliant after quarter time, and kicked seven goals in tandem to setup the victory.

The two teams swapped ladder positions after this match, holding sixth and seventh respectively - still two wins outside of the top four.
