Game Review

A St Kilda side weakened by the absence of several players on strike were put to the sword and resulted in Carlton's first triple figure winning margin.
However, just before the start it was discovered that St.Kilda had 19 players on the field.
The crowd was small with the Argus reporting two groups at the outer end goals, and a small sprinkling in the reserve and grandstand.
In the third term the rain came down and all the players were following the ball into Carlton's forward line. All players except one, Jamieson who was sheltering under a spectator's umbrella on the half back boundary. All of sudden out of a scrimmage of players burst the Saints' player Sellars who dashed towards goal. By the time Jamieson realised it was too late and the ball was put through for St.Kida's second goal.

Vin Gardiner set a new Carlton record with 10 goals. It could have been many more as he also finished with 12 behinds.

Gardiner blooms as Carlton goalkicker
Carlton full-forward Vin Gardiner kicked a freakish ten goals 11 behinds in the Blues romp over strike-depleted St Kilda at Princes Park. This was the first double digit score by a Blue, beating 'Silver' Caine's eight in 1907. Carlton beat the hapless Saints by 114 points. Younger brother of Jack Gardiner, Vin moved the opposite way to him, and crossed from Melbourne to Carlton in 1907, and played in the 1908 premiership. - 100 Years of Australian Rules Football.

At the end of this round Carlton were in 3rd spot on the ladder with a percentage of 150.4.
