Carlton were too strong for the Adelaide Crows and led from start to finish, more than doubling their score to win by 68 points.

In the absence of Ratten, Anthony Koutoufides had 36 possessions, while Jim Plunkett and Craig Bradley had 34 and 31, both kicking 2 goals. Matthew Lappin's 5 goals (4 in the first half) helped set up the victory. One second quarter goal where Lappin crumbed a boundary throw-in & snapped truly was a highlight. Popular opinion - backed up by footy facts - was that he was desperately unlucky not to be named in the All-Australian side after kicking over 50 goals for the year from a Half Forward Flank.

Interesting fact: This would be Carlton's last win in a Final until Season 2011!
Score Records: This remains Adelaide's lowest ever score against the Blues.
Big Scores: This would be Carlton's last 10 goal victory until we smashed Port by 66 points in 2008, some 7 years later
4 in a row: This was the last time for almost 8 years that Carlton had won 4 matches in a row.
