Carlton activate sub
Carlton have pulled the trigger on their tactical sub with Matthew Kennedy coming in.
Presumably they are hoping it will help them win the ball more at the source.
Lewis Young has been subbed out of the game.
Brisbane owning the ball
Charlie Cameron has kicked his fourth goal of the game, while Carlton are beginning to struggle to get hands on the ball and get much control of the game.
After winning the contested possessions earlier in the evening, they are now trailing in that area this term, along with clearances.
The ball is living in the Lions’ forward half so far this quarter.
Brisbane lead Carlton 10.9 (69) to 6.4 (40).
Blues needed-goal goes begging, Lions get another
After Brisbane dominated the first nine minutes of the third-quarter – with seven inside 50s, but only one goal from it – Carlton had a shot on goal (Josh Honey) but the opportunity went begging.
The Lions then got another major down the other end moments later, thanks to Charlie Cameron with an assist from Jack Gunston, which put them up by 23-points.
Bailey kicks off third term with Lions goal
The Lions have extended their lead to 16-points, just under their biggest margin of the game, after a goal from Zac Bailey – his second of the night.
Second half gets underway
We’re off in the third-quarter.
Lions have the lead but the Blues aren’t far behind them.
What can each conjure each this half?
450 for Simon Meredith
AFL field umpire Simon Meredith is umpiring his 450th AFL match tonight at Marvel Stadium.
Lions hold lead at half time
After a goal fest of an opening quarter, the second term saw less scoring but no less pressure as each side knuckled down in the contest.
It was the first second-quarter the Blues have lost this season after the Lions booted two goals to one.
The visiting side hold their lead by 10-points, 7.7 (49) to 6.3 (39).
Motlop gets one back for the Blues
After the fast-firing opening quarter, it was 29-minutes between goals for the Blues but Jesse Motlop broke the drought.
His major put it back within 10-points with just two minutes left in the quarter.
Lions take biggest margin of the game, McKay to return
All within range of goal, the ball went from Josh Dunkley, to Hugh McCluggage, to Jack Gunston, who slotted it through to give the Lions their biggest lead of the night with 18-points.
Harry McKay is back from the rooms and looking to return to the field after being sent off due to the blood rule and having his head assessed.
McKay off with blood rule
A hit to the face has sent Carlton forward Harry McKay off due to the blood rule.
He’s gone down to the rooms to be further assessed.
