Carlton win by 29 points
Vastly outmatched against the Blues, Melbourne battled manfully all day to contain the damage to a five goal loss.
The Demons stuck with their opponents for much of the day, and dominated in the rucks but the problem was the age old lack of a key forward to kick goals from the football won by midfielders like Flower, Alves and Wells.
Best were Wells, Hardeman and Baker. Tony Sullivan was replaced with a bruised hip.

Goals - Barham 3, Ough 1, Scott 1, Murray 1, Owens 1, Reid 1, Moore 1, Sember 1, Jerram 1
Best - Scott, Ough, Murray
