The Hawks then kicked 3 unanswered goals before the Blues responded with 2 to be 5 points down at the final change. In the final quarter, no goals were scored for 16 minutes before the Hawks broke through with 2 to take a match winning 17 point lead. A late goal from Carlton reduced the final margin to 11 points.
