Game Review

Carlton proved no match for the Demons, and in slippery conditions made too many mistakes in the first quarter. The Blues didn't score in the first term, and could only manage one goal until half-time. The main interest in the game became the fights in the second and last quarters, with the fight in the last term involving 28 of the players on the ground.
