From the papersEdit
"West Coast made a whirlwind start to the game, charging through the centre at every opportunity and feeding full-forward Sumich on the lead. Sumich, so formidable in his home city, had four goals to his credit on Campbell before quarter-time.
Footscray had opportunities, particularly early in the piece, but kicked inaccurately.
Sumich's four first-quarter goals all came in the opening 20 minutes. The first was the result of a strong mark, the second - a trifle lucky - came after he nudged Campbell out to mark.
Two excellent passes set him up for the third and fourth goals, with Campbell having no chance of intercepting."
