Heinz Night Series Semi-Final
Melbourne vs Carlton
Tuesday 21 September
Venue: Lake Oval
Attendance: 11,919


Melbourne win by 26 points

Goalkickers: Peter Sinclair 3, Ross Dillon 2, John Townsend 2, Greg Wells 2, Graham Osborne 2, Robert McKenzie 1, Peter Keenan 1, Paul Callery 1

In what was ironically the last game Ron Barassi would coach at the club he left the Demons for, Ray Biffin returned from suspension and Tony Sullivan recovered from a knee injury suffered in the last home and away match.

A deserved lead at three-quarter time was extended into a comfortable win thanks to best on ground Greg Wells who kicked two goals and had a hand in another two. Graham Molloy was also prominent at centre half-forward.

Davis, Keenan and Townsend were also amongst the best. Sinclair replaced Alves in the selected side.
