Game ReviewOn this King’s Birthday holiday Monday afternoon at Princes Park, the Navy Blues continued undefeated and raised their percentage to a season-high 172.73 with this eleven-goal demolition of Geelong. Celebrating Carlton Football Club’s 200th VFL appearance, the hosts kept their visitors to only two major scores for the match, in their biggest win of the season so far.
Following on from his last-minute heroics of the previous week, Harvey Kelly kicked four goals to take his aggregate for the year to 14 – placing him third on the goal-kicking table behind Dick Lee of Collingwood (21), and Len Mortimer of South Melbourne with 17. ‘Silver‘ Caine also slotted four, climbing into eighth spot with a total of 11.
Meanwhile, St Kilda began a mid-season surge by handing Collingwood a 41-point defeat at the Junction Oval, and jumped two places into the four. University lost to Fitzroy and fell to sixth. The top four was now Carlton, Essendon, Fitzroy and St Kilda.
Ted BarrassAt half time in this match, a collection was made for former Blue Edward 'Ted' Barrass. Ted was a Pre VFL player for Carlton (1878-83) and an International cricket umpire. He had been suffering ill-health for some time.
