Aided by a poor start by the Demons, Carlton got their first win in five starts against Melbourne. In the last three quarters Melbourne outscored their opponents by a goal but it was too late after they'd surrendered a 35 point lead at the first break.

Bennett kicked 1.6 and Healy had a dirty 100th with just 6 touches.

Best were Lovett, Febey and Stynes. Alan Johnson suffered a knee injury and Greg Healy a concussion in his 100th game.

John Northey said his side wasn't "switched on", and that by letting Fitzroy "dictate terms" in the first quarter, "they got their confidence up and we couldn't get back into the game".
