Of Essendon’s 20 players against Brisbane on the night of May 27 1988, only four GARY O’DONNELL, ANTHONY DANIHER, KEVIN WALSH and PAUL HAMILTON failed to register a goal. The Bombers were the first club to achieve 16 individual goalkickers a match.

The all-time VFL-AFL record of 16 goalkickers was equalled by Hawthorn on Sunday June 11 2000 against St Kilda in the Round 14 match transferred to headquarters because of the poor condition of Colonial Stadium and by West Coast versus Port Adelaide in 2005-Round 10 on May 29.

Geelong have come closest to emulating this feat with their 15 goalkickers
against the Western Bulldogs in Round 2, 1999.

When Melbourne and North Melbourne met in Round 14, 1990, Melbourne had 8 goalkickers and North 7 – yet the Roos won by 127 points after kicking their second highest score to that time, 31.14. This is a graphic illustration of a fascinating sidelight to this study: there is not necessarily any direct correlation between high scores and individual goalkickers.

The following table shows the number of goalkickers involved in the highest scores in League history.

GK’s
GEELONG 37.17 (239) v  Brisbane 1992-R7-C 13
FITZROY 36.22 (238) v  Melbourne 1979-R17-P 10
SYDNEY 36.20 (236) v  Essendon 1987-R17-SCG 12
HAWTHORN 36.15 (231) v  Fitzroy 1991-R6-NHO 10
NORTH MELB 35.19 (229) v  Sydney 1993-R6-PP 10
GEELONG 35.18 (228) v  St Kilda 1989-R7-KP 12

In short, there is ‘no rhyme or reason’ behind the club records for the most individual goalkickers. To quote another anomalous example, West Coast, in their 5th game of League football, kicked a winning score of 15.14 against Hawthorn in 1987 – thanks to 13 individual goalkickers!

Will we ever see every member of a team score a goal in an AFL match? Although the trend is for goals to be "shared around’ in modern football, and defenders are by no means confined to their backline, the fact that teams now comprise 22 members, makes it rather unlikely, to say the least.

There is, however, one famous case from the past worth recalling: In the 1924 Interstate Carnival in Hobart, Victoria 31.28 defeated Queensland 17.12 – and every one of the Vics scored a goal! This was in the era before teams had reserves, and of the 18 players, LLOYD HAGGER kicked 6, there were 8 twos, and nine singles. It certainly is an amazing fact, coming as it was from the era of ‘set position’ play, but it should be borne in mind that the Vics, in the second half, when they realised they had a chance of accomplishing the feat, ‘rotated’ each backman who had yet to score a goal, to full-forward until he kicked his goal! This also no doubt accounts to a large degree for Queensland’s healthy score in an era when scores, as a rule, were very much lower.

SOLE GOALKICKER BY A TEAM — LAST TIME — ALL CLUBS

Making his debut at Geelong’s Corio Oval in the opening round of 1930, North Melbourne recruit BOB MATTHEWS was prominent early with 2 goals. The rest of the match, however, was all one-way traffic to the Geelong forward line; the home side added 15.10 to only two behinds after quarter-time. It left Matthews with the unusual claim to fame: in all of their history, covering 1529 matches over 75 seasons, he is the only North player to be the club’s sole goalkicker in a match.

Thirty-four years later, this time at Kardinia Park, two players with similar names were part of the visiting South Melbourne team. One was JOHN RANTALL, the champion defender, who by the time of his retirement during 1980 had chalked up a then-record of 336 League games with three clubs. The other was 20th man IAN RANDLE who made his debut when he replaced the injured MAX PAPLEY at half-time. In the drenching rain, hail and a freezing wind, Randle took his place in League history by soccering through the Swans’ only goal for the day close to the end—and he was never selected in the senior team again!

The following list, detailing the most recent occasion each club had a sole goalkicker in a match, is something of a mixed bag time-wise. The 1990s saw only one addition, when MARK ARCERI, with only 33 seconds left on the clock, scored Carlton’s only goal for the day at the Western Oval in 1991. At the other extreme, Melbourne have not had an occurrence since 1914. In one of the most celebrated achievements in League history, ARTHUR BEST kicked not only all of Melbourne’s 5 goals — the most goals ever by a player to kick all his side’s goals — but in fact their entire score of 5.5, at the Lakeside Oval, in what proved to be his last League match, before war service enlistment. Since then the Demons have had six 2-goal scores, most recently 2.8 against Geelong in 1989 and West Coast in 1991, 13 scores of 3 goals and 17 of 4 — but not a single goalkicker.

Not surprisingly, all cases listed are for losing teams. It’s been a long time since a sole goalkicker booted home a winning team (in either a home-and-away, or finals match): the last case was when GORDON COVENTRY’s two goals in the mud and slush were sufficient for Collingwood against Richmond in the 1927 Grand Final. JACK FINCHER replied with one for the Tigers—and since then no team has had a sole goalkicker in a finals match. As recently as the 1999 finals series, Sydney had only 2 goalkickers in their Final against Essendon. TONY LOCKETT and PETER FILANDIA – which only emphasises what a huge gulf there is between as few as two goalkickers, and actually having only a sole goalkicker.

It should be noted that since the instances of Fincher and Geelong’s PERCY ELLINGSEN, both clubs have ‘gone one better’ (or rather, worse) with a goalless score: Geelong with 0.18 against St Kilda in 1919, and Richmond with 0.8 in 1961, also against the Saints.

The last time a match – that is, both teams combined – saw a sole goalkicker was over a century ago, in Round 3, 1899, when of the 36 slogging it out, HUBERT FITZPATRICK, kicked truly in the last quarter for Essendon to defeat South Melbourne 1.9 to 0.9. This odd occurrence has even happened in a final – in 1897 EDGAR CROFT’s goal was enough to secure the inaugural premiership for Essendon, with a scoreline of 1.8 to Melbourne’s 0.8. These two records seem secure for all time.

Carlton full-forward BRENDAN FEVOLA in a remarkable personal performance kicked 85 per cent of the total score for the Blues in the match played at the MCG on Sunday, May 21, 2006 when St Kilda 18.18-126 beat Carlton 4.10-34 – Fevola 4.5, SIMON WIGGINS 0.2, rushed 0.3 = 4.10 – the most recent games where one player has kicked all goals for a club in a match –

Footystats Diary, Match Review, 2012-R8, Fri-Sat-Sun, May 18-19-20

The Western Bulldogs-Gold Coast match played in Darwin on Saturday night provided the rare occurrence where neither club had a multiple goalkicker for the match Bulldogs 9, Suns 4.

Last time this happened (according to the Footystats records) was in 1999, when the Port Adelaide 4.8 v Richmond 3.12 match, contained seven single goalkickers.

It was the first time this had occurred in a League match since Round 22, 1981 when Collingwood 4.9 v Fitzroy 8.11 match, saw 12 single goalkickers.

The record is 15 — the Essendon 8.13 v Fitzroy 7.8 match of Round 15, 1908 contained 15 single goalkickers.

At Kardinia Park in Round 5 of 2000, the Geelong-West Coast match produced a new League record of 20 single goalkickers in a match. In all, 24 players kicked goals for the two clubs. West Coast, the losers, had 11 single scorers while Geelong had nine singles, adding to DAVID MENSCH 6, RONNIE BURNS 4, CLINT BIZZELL 3 and PAUL LYNCH 2.

The Hawthorn-West match in 1987 proved remarkable in that only JASON DUNSTALL with 6, and DON HOLMES and CHRIS LEWIS, with 2 each, were multiple goalscorers, 18 players kicking singles.

Essendon’s match against Brisbane in 1988, in which 16 Dons kicked goals, included 11 players with singles, and 6 from the Bears, for a total of 17 singles. Later in the season, when they met at Carrara, Essendon kicked 16.7, included in which were 10 singles, for a total of 21 Essendon singles against the Bears that year.

In the Essendon-South Melbourne match of Round 3, 1920, with a final score of 7.13 to 9.9, South’s CHRIS LAIRD kicked 2, and 14 players had singles.

The Richmond-Melbourne meeting of 1948, with a 12.12 to 13.11 final score, saw only 3 multiple goalscorers, and 16 players with singles.

In both the St Kilda 6.12 v Essendon 11.16 match of 1986, and the Footscray 10.19 v Fitzroy 7.4 match of 1987, 15 players kicked the 17 goals.

TONY SHAW, the future club games record holder with 313, made his debut for Collingwood against Footscray at Victoria Park in Round 19, 1978. He was one of the 11 single goalkickers, in the winning score of 11.16!

In both the match with the most goalkickers to that time, 24, the Melbourne-Collingwood opening round match of 1983, and the match that broke that record, with 25, the Western Bulldogs-Geelong match of 1999, 16 players had singles.

The Fremantle-Footscray match of 1995, 17.14 to 12.13, and the Carlton-Geelong match of 1997, 12.14 to 13.16, saw 16 players kick singles.

Adelaide and St Kilda, in the 10.16 to 9.12 match of 1997, saw 16 players kick the 19 goals. In their 14.12 v 11.15 match of 1999, 17 players had singles.

In the North Melb.-Melbourne opening round match of 1990, DARREN BENNETT kicked 8, STEVEN CLARK 3, and 11 Demons had singles, plus 6 from North, for a total of 17 singles. This was bettered by their 1998 Preliminary Final meeting, of 18 singles, 6 again from North, and Melbourne’s staggering return from the match, of 12 individuals scoring their 12 goals!

The Brisbane-North Melbourne match of 1997, 15.19 to 12.11, contained 17 singles.

In Sydney’s 16.17 against North Melb. in 1995, TONY LOCKETT kicked 5, and there were 11 singles, and the Swans needed 13 goalkickers to kick their 15.9 against Melbourne in 1997. There were 2 twos, and again 11 players with singles, plus 5 singles by the Demons, for a match total of 16.

In Rounds 20 and 21 of 1997, the Western Bulldogs had a total of 17 goals scored against them, by Adelaide (7), and West Coast (10) — kicked by 17 single goalkickers!

In the 1998 Carlton 10.13 v Adelaide 9.9 season opener, only ANTHONY KOUTOUFIDES, with 3, was a multiple goalscorer. 16 players had singles.

The 1998 Sydney-West Coast match, 10.14 to 9.14, saw 17 players kick the 19 goals.

Sydney in 1989 had a score of 12.23 against Brisbane, comprised of BARRY MITCHELL’s 2, and 10 players with singles. Conversely, however, the Swans of that era do hold a League record in their club record score of 36.20 against Essendon in 1987. DAVID BOLTON was the only player to register a single – the Swans had a record 11 multiple goalscorers in this match.

NO PLAYER IN A MATCH (BOTH TEAMS COMBINED) KICKS MORE THAN ONE GOAL
MOST MATCH GOALS

The record is 15 — the Essendon 8.13 v Fitzroy 7.8 match of Round 15, 1908 contained 15 single goalkickers.

NO PLAYER IN A MATCH (BOTH TEAMS COMBINED) KICKS MORE THAN ONE GOAL
LAST TIME

This rare occurrence happened in 1999, when the Port Adelaide 4.8 v Richmond 3.12 match, contained seven single goalkickers.

It was the first time this had occurred in a League match since Round 22, 1981 — when Collingwood 4.9 v Fitzroy 8.11 match, saw 12 single goalkickers.

NO PLAYER IN A MATCH (BOTH TEAMS COMBINED) KICKS MORE THAN ONE GOAL
LAST TIME IN A FINAL

The most recent occasion was in 1920, when Fitzroy 3.5 v Collingwood 4.17 First Semi-Final contained seven single goalkickers.

PLAYER KICKS ALL OF TEAM’S GOALS
(minimum requirement—3 goals by player)

In what was to be a forerunner of their last couple of years in the mid-1990s, Fitzroy suffered many heavy thrashings in the 1960s. One such occasion was at Victoria Park on the 1967 Queen’s Birthday weekend. Collingwood defeated them by 101 points, however, what makes this match noteworthy in a different context, is that ALEX RUSCUKLIC kicked the Lions’ 4 goals for the day, making him the only player in the last 85 years to kick all of his team’s goals, in a score higher than 3 goals. Of course in football nowadays it is extremely rare, for there to be even a slim chance of this happening in a match. So it’s worth noting that in recent times, probably SCOTT CUMMINGS has come closest to emulating this feat. He kicked Port Adelaide’s first three goals against Sydney in Round 11, 1997 – coincidentally, also on the Queen’s Birthday Saturday — with ADAM KINGSLEY their only other goalscorer, late in the match. As the following list shows, 3 other players previously achieved what Ruscuklic managed – which is secondary only to Arthur Best’s feat of kicking all 5 goals (in fact, the entire score of 5.5) in 1914.

There have been 13 instances of players kicking all 3 goals their team scored. Most are from the early days of League football in the era of low scoring; the most recent case was when BRAD HARDIE kicked Brisbane’s 3 first-quarter goals (again, on the Queen’s Birthday Saturday!) against Richmond in 1989, which became their final goal tally on a rain-soaked MCG. Interestingly, the first 7 instances of this occurring – a player kicking all of his team’s 3 goals – were by St Kilda and South Melbourne players.

Of the 18 cases listed in the first category – that is, kicking all, 3, 4 or 5 goals – only one was for a winning team: that of South’s CHARLIE COLGAN, as opponent Essendon’s score was only 2.1; while HARRY LAMPE, like Best, kicked the whole score – in his case, 3.1

Also listed subsequently, are the times when players have kicked all goals but 1, 2 or 3, of successively higher team totals. Note than JOHN COLEMAN is featured in both Essendon games against Richmond in 1952 – he kicked 15 of his team’s 18 goals against the Tigers that year, although both cases were for losing sides.

One of the few examples of the phenomenon of monopolising the goals, involving both teams was in 1912 when Fitzroy 12.14 defeated University 7.8: JIM FREAKE bagged 9 out of 12 for the Maroons, and ROY PARK 5 of the Students’ 7.

A most outstanding achievement in modern times was that of SIMON BEASLEY, who kicked Footscray’s first 8 goals against Geelong at Waverley Park in 1984, before BRIAN ROYAL chipped in with one not long before the final siren. Other wonderful lone-hand performances were PETER McKENNA’s 16 out of 19, and TONY LOCKETT’s 12 out of 14 in a losing score.

MOST GOALKICKERS IN A MATCH

25 – twice
...
2001-Round 20 at Docklands, 13 by St Kilda, 12 for Carlton
1999-Round 2 at Princes Park, 15 by Geelong, 10 for the Bulldogs.

Much of the above detail originated from an in-depth analysis by expert
statsman STEPHEN RODGERS, first published in Footystats 2000.

Updates for succeeding seasons have been added.

His extensive notes and comments are included in this Footystats presentation.

The biggest performances of all time in a League match is 16 goalkickers by Essendon in 1988, Hawthorn in 2000 and West Coast in 2005.
