First Goal

Despite the home ground advantage Carlton had the vast majority of fan support, but spectators saw a one-sided result. Melbourne's ruck dominated, and their players had a crucial pace advantage. The scores were not a fair reflection of Carlton's efforts as they played hard throughout the day and were unlucky to lose by nearly 10 goals.

Best were McGinis, Byers and Herring.
