Game ReviewThis was North Melbourne's first victory over Carlton at Princes Park. The game was tight throughout but North Melbourne would create a 2 point margin through the third quarter; a margin that would remain as the final siren tolled.
North shocked the Blues with their pace, and raced away to lead by 25 points to nil during the first term. The Blues hit back in the second quarter and held a 2 point lead at half time. During the final term North resumed it's fast paced attack and got out to a two goal lead, the Blues pegged them back to one point, then North attacked for another point when the bell rang.
The Blues finished the game with 17 men, with Clarke injured and was unable to contribute. Carlton's recent failures has been attributed to the lack of form of proven match winners from previous seasons.
At the end of this round Carlton were in 8th spot on the ladder with a percentage of 107.0.
