First Goal
David Flintoff (3rd game)

The Blues had not lost two in a row under Robert Walls since the new coach took over at the start of 1986, and when they went into the first break with a lead and having kept the Demons goalless it looked as if they were going to keep that record alive.

By half-time the Blues had suffered a goalless quarter and scores were equal. Melbourne's backline were superb, Danny Hughes and Earl Spalding easily account for the reigning premiers' best forwards, blanketing both David Rhys-Jones and Stephen Kernahan.

On an afternoon where a swirling wind made precision nearly impossible, Melbourne's physical play kept Carlton to one goal in the third quarter despite bright sunshine, giving them a three goal break at the last change..

Best were Lyon, B. Lovett and Hughes. Febey (back), Wilson (eye) and Yeats (ankle) all suffered injuries.
