Round 6, 1914
Carlton vs Melbourne
Saturday 30 May
Venue: Princes Park
Carlton win by 58 points
Goalkickers: Arthur Best 2, Bill Hendrie 1, Les Smith 1, Bert Trahair 1
Les Smith (3rd game)
The hapless Reds crashed to their sixth straight loss of the year at the hands of a rampant Carlton side who were inaccurate but made more of their chances than Essendon had a week earlier when they should have been the ones registering a huge win over the disappointing Melbourne.
In the most unfavourable weather of the season, with drizzling rain falling, Melbourne were thrashed by a Carlton side who had been criticised for their play early in the year. Their inaccuracy in the first three quarters was made up for with a 6.3 to 0.5 last quarter which helped register a huge win to get the Blues' season back on track.
Melbourne were accused of playing "wildly without any definite purpose".
Best were Lilley, McKenzie and Allen.
