Carlton would score a comprehensive 74 point win against the Lions, who would be beaten so convincingly, it would spur them on to win all but one of their remaining matches that season, on their way to the 2001 premiership (the first of 3 successive premierships).

It was a very even contribution, but Anthony Koutoufides with 36 possessions and 11 marks, Scott Camporeale with 33 and 4 and Brett Ratten with 32 and 10 would dominate the midfield. Simon Beaumont had 27 and beat Jonathan Brown. Lance Whitnall, Koutoufides, Matthew Lappin and Brendan Fevola each kicked three goals.

This big win, the first time they had won two in a row all season, boosted Carlton's perecentage by 10% and sent them to 4th on the ladder.

This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 2000's. For more games like this, please click here.
