    BEHIND BOMBERSDell'Olio bounces the shot at goal from the impossible angle and is just off line.

  • Q4 28:10

    BEHIND BLUESSimpson bursts through the heart of the 'G, runs all the way inside the paint and hooks his kick right! Very costly. They needed that.

  • Q4 27:45

    The Blues have kept on coming but where was this effort in the previous quarters!? Surely the Bombers can't lose from here...

  • Q4 25:40

    GOAL BLUESMurphy squeezes a kick inside 50 and finds Hampson low to the ground. He is awarded the 50m penlaty and that takes him to the goal square. BANG! Bombers by 24. Carlton still alive.

  • Q4 23:50

    Here is the equation: Five goals in six minutes for the Blues. It can be done, but it would take an almighty effort.

  • Q4 21:20

    GOAL BOMBERSThe Bombers win the ball out of the middle and Dell'Olio gets away a fantastic handball to Monfries who dribbles home the goal! And that should be that! Margin is five goals.

  • Q4 20:15

    GOAL BLUESMurphy finds the ball inside attacking 50 and with a clever kick across the ground hits Judd running forward who steams ahead and rides home the goal! A four-goal game. Game on!

    Four goals to one in this quarter and the Blues have a sniff, trailing by five goals with about nine and a half minutes remaining.

  • Q4 15:40

    GOAL BLUESA kick to the top of the square, Waite attempts the mark, fails but brings the ball to ground, Betts roves it once again and snaps home his fourth goal! The Blues still have hope...

  • Q4 13:55

    GOAL BLUESGibbs snaps a shot around his body and gets a kind bounce and reduces the margin to six goals, but it's too little too late one would think...

  • Q4 12:15

    The Bombers have stopped Carlton's run and carry and have played some great counterattacking football. It has been a fantastic effort from the boys in Red and Black.

  • Q4 09:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSCrameri hooks the kick around his body and its bounces through for a minor score.

  • Q4 07:40

  • Q4 02:15

    Yarran is off the ground with a hamstring injury to compound the Blues' woes.

  • Q4 01:15

    GOAL BLUESSimpson to the top of the goal-square, the ball spills over the back of the pack, Betts roves it beautifully and pops home the goal. They Blues have a pulse...

  • Q4 00:01

    The final quarter is underway and unless the Blues can kick the opening three or four goals of this term, then it'll be lights out for the Blue Boys. The Bombers have been fantastic.

  • Q3 29:25

    The Bombers ran all over the Blues in that term and at 3QT they hold a massive 47point lead and it would take a miracle for the Blues to come back from this far down!

  • Q3 29:20

    GOAL BOMBERSBellchambers with a long kick inside 50 and Crameri stands tall to take the mark just oustide the goal square. He hammers home the goal on the siren!

  • Q3 26:45

    GOAL BOMBERSDavey on the break has loose players ahead and finds Dell'Olio at half forward. He has Crameri running forward, he passes it over to him and Crameri goes back and GOALS!

  • Q3 24:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSDavey turns his man inside out and bends the shot at goal from the boundary but curves it too much. That would have been special.

  • Q3 23:25

  • Q3 22:00

    BEHIND BLUESJudd with a handball over his head toward goal and Garlett is unable to gather the ball and it tumbles across the line for a behind.

  • Q3 16:55

    GOAL BOMBERSThe Bombers on the counter-attack as Monfries fires the handball to Howlett who thumps a long ball to Stanton about 25 out from the sticks. Stanton sinks a goal, finally!

  • Q3 15:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSJetta with a kick over the top to Crameri who is all alone inside 50, he runs toward goal, is caught in two minds whether to give the handball or not and in the end misses a sitter!

  • Q3 13:25

    The Blues have lifted their intensity and pressure but neither side has been unable to make the most of their chances with profligacy in front of goals plaguing both squads.

  • Q3 11:30

    BEHIND BLUESGreat movement through the corridor by the Blues and Waite is found on the lead about 45 out from goal. He doesn't have the accuracy and the margin is 22 points.

  • Q3 11:00

    BEHIND BOMBERSRyder throws the ball on to his boot and it tumbles through the goals but the umpire deemed that it was touched of the boot.

  • Q3 09:55

    Hurley has been subbed out of the game as he looked to be playing injured and it appears as though it is his hamstring that is of concern. Dell'Olio has been activated.

  • Q3 08:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSA long set shot from Dyson from outside 50 and he strikes the woodwork.

  • Q3 06:25

    BEHIND BLUESWaite pumps the ball to Betts who has his arms ever so slightly chopped and the free is given by the ump in the centre square. A crucial miss to the left from 10 out on a tight angle.

  • Q3 05:05

    BEHIND BLUESScotald handballs over the top to Simpson who has time and space to fire at goal from 35 on the run and pulls the shot wide.

  • Q3 04:30

    BEHIND BOMBERSWatson fires at goal from 50 and is off target to the left.

  • Q3 02:30

    GOAL BLUESHolding the ball against Hocking and Betts gets the free. That is a very harsh call deep in the Blues' attack. Betts from 20m slides through a much-need goal. Bombers lead by 22 points.

  • Q3 01:30

    Betts with just his second possession heads to the pocket and hits Waite. Waite shoots his shot across the face and fails to score.

  • Q3 00:01

    Back for the third quarter and few would have seen this coming. The Bombers produced a fine first half and lead by 28 points. The Blues will no doubt bounce back.

  • Q2 27:50

    The siren rings and the Bombers take a very impressive 28point lead in to the half time break on the back of five consecutive second-quarter goals to Carlton's zero.

  • Q2 26:20

  • Q2 01:45

    GOAL BOMBERSA lovely kick inside 50 and Hurley leads to take the chest mark. From 30m on a 45 degree angle, he steers through the opening goal of the second term. Bombers in front.

    The second quarter is underway and the update on Carrazzo is that he has been taken to hospital for scans on that shoulder/collarbone injury.

Alwyn Davey and Leroy Jetta celebrate a goal during the win over Carlton


ESSENDON is off to its best start to a season since it won the premiership in 2000 after the Bombers upset Carlton by 30 points at the MCG on Saturday.

The Blues were red-hot favourites to record their fourth victory of the season after demolishing Collingwood last week, but it was Essendon who remained undefeated after the final siren sounded on its 15.19 (109) to 11.13 (79) win.

Five talking points: Carlton v Essendon

James Hird was glowing in his praise of the performance he labelled his team's best of the season to date.

"I think the boys were terrific," Hird said.

"We went in with a very strong game-plan that we wanted to execute and the boys took it up to Carlton.

"You don't know all the time whether the confidence levels are there to execute a game-plan like the one we went in with today but you've got to be so proud of your players.

"I don't think anyone in Australia gave us a chance of winning today."

Carlton suffered early blows with injuries to Andrew Carrazzo and Jeremy Laidler, but the Dons' work-rate and ferocity at the contest was superior for much of the contest.

Carrazzo was subbed out of the game after suffering a shoulder injury in the first minute and Laidler received treatment on the same knee he dislocated in the NAB Cup and appeared to struggle throughout.

The Bombers weren't without their own injury concerns with Michael Hurley subbed out with a hamstring complaint early in the second half that Hird said would likely keep him out of Wednesday's Anzac Day match.

Bombers Brent Stanton and Jobe Watson were outstanding at the stoppages from the outset and finished with 36 and 31 possessions respectively.

Stewart Crameri was a dangerous presence in attack for Essendon, but the full-forward robbed himself of a bigger goal haul with wasteful kicking seeing him finish with 5.6.

The Blues had few clear winners on the day, but Marc Murphy was one of their few consistent contributors with 29 disposals and a goal, while Eddie Betts finished with four goals after being largely unsighted in the first half.

Despite their injury woes, Carlton led by four points at quarter-time, but looked listless in the face of the Bombers' second-quarter blitz, which saw them kick five unanswered goals for the term to lead by 28 points at the main break.    

The Blues finally started to play the type of the football that saw the club installed as premiership favourites during the week early after the restart, but spurned several gilt-edged opportunities in front of goal.

The Bombers made them pay with the last three goals of the quarter setting up an imposing 47-point lead at three-quarter time.

Carlton launched a last-ditch attempt to snatch the win with five of the first six goals of the final term, but an Angus Monfries goal with eight minutes to play secured a memorable win for the Dons.

Brett Ratten was disappointed to have received so few four-quarter contributions from his players and refused to blame the loss of Carrazzo and Laidler's struggles for the flat performance.

"It would be a big excuse if we said that," Ratten said.

"Teams will face these challenging times to reshape their teams and that's the beauty of coaching - you don't know if it's going to be a beautiful day or if it's going to rain or lose players and you have to change your plans."
