Lowest score at Waverley
Conditions at Waverley were atrocious, but it was no excuse for the ludicrously low score by the Demons. Carlton, for instance, had little problem booting 17 goals.
The loss, their eighth in a row, was such a disappointment that the commitee were forced to call a meeting in the following week with senior players to discuss their performance. It was the Demons lowest score since Round 5, 1908.
The goals came at the 10 minute mark of the second term and 16 minutes into the third.
Coach Dennis Jones said "That is the worst game of football I have ever seen". Even Carlton coach Alex Jesaulenko admitted the game told him nothing about his side.
Dullard, Baker and Gaunt were best in what was the club's lowest ever score at Waverley. Paul Thompson was reported for striking but found not guilty.
