Carlton have secured a berth in the semi-finals of the Bartercard Victorian Premier League after accounting for Essendon at Princess Park #1 Oval in their quarter final on the weekend. The Blues now face Ringwood away in the hope of securing a grand final berth and their first flag since the 1980/81 season.


For the Bombers it was a disappointing end to the season after they reached the final last year losing to Footscray-Edgewater. Carlton recovered to post 256 but given the Bombers depth it looked within their reach, however on the second day, promising opening bowler, Ryan Sidebottom, had a day out for the Blues taking 5-42, including the first five wickets, to steer his side home by 61 runs.

Demons skipper Andrew Kent won the toss and elected to bat on a firm wicket with some grass cover. Conditions were perfect for cricket and early on it appeared the Melbourne batsmen would take full advantage of those conditions.
