Some may remember this game for the time clock going 36 minutes in the final term - just enough time for Adrian Gleeson to snap a goal off the pack in the last seconds. Fans from the day recall that the feed-out to Gleeson came from none other than Luke O'Sullivan on debut.
Carlton gets up off the canvas to defeat North Melbourne in a cliffhanger at Princes Park. At the 28 minute mark of the last quarter the reigning premier trails by 14 points and appears gone for all money. But three quick goals including the match winning one right on the siren by Adrian Gleeson enable the Blues to steal the game. Craig Bradley, Adrian Gleeson, Fraser Murphy and David Glascott spark Carlton into action around the ground while up forward skipper Stephen Kernahan (five goals) and Jon Dorotich (four goals) are key figures. - Tony Greenberg Inside Football.
This game is remembered fondly by Carlton fans, and is considered one of our best wins in the Home & Away rounds of the 1980's. For more games like this, please click here.
