Carlton win by 61 points
First game and First goal
Matt Jones (6th game)
With an injury depleted lineup, and no permanent key forwards in the side, the Demons broke even with Carlton for the first five minutes of the game but couldn't capitalise on their advantage. By the time the Blues got going they were hard to stop and opened up a five goal lead by quarter time.
The Demons started to eat into Carlton's lead in the second quarter when they kicked their first goal and were awarded another shot immediately afterwards as a free kick.
Best were Dunn, Garland and Sylvia. Luke Tapscott was reported for rough conduct but the charge was thrown out by the Match Review Panel.
