Despite early goals to Warren Dean and Ricky Jackson, Carlton hit back and took a 17 point lead into the first break. It was as good as it got the Blues as they fell apart under pressure. By half-time they were a goal behind, three down at the last break and six down when the match ended.

Best were Dean, Newport and Healy.
