Game ReviewDreadful inaccuracy in front of goal almost cost the Blues victory in this exciting match at Princes Park, as the Swans - scoreless in the last quarter - fought tooth and nail to hold out the home side in a grandstand finish. Returning to the side, Vin Waite kicked two important goals as Carlton accounted for one of their main rivals for a finals berth, and climbed into the top four when St Kilda beat Essendon at Moorabbin.
In a thrilling match, Carlton defeated South Melbourne by just three points with regular backman Vin Waite kicking two goals for the Blues. - Football Record.
