As it happened: Carlton Blues v Fremantle Dockers; GWS Giants v Melbourne Demons

That’s all for today. Thanks for following along our Easter Sunday live blog.

It was a great win for both Carlton and Melbourne. Much needed for Carlton to avoid going 0-3, while the Demons won to go 3-0.

Tough times at both Freo and GWS after those games today.

Join us again tomorrow for live coverage of the Easter Monday clash between Hawthorn and Geelong.

I’ll leave you with some highlights from the Blues big win:

They raise the bat with five minutes to play through James Jordon, who converts a set shot.

Demons pulling away now after an early challenge for the Giants who are now 0-3 and need nothing short of a miracle to play finals.

GWS 61 MEL 100 in Q4

Another show of skill, tenacity and poise.

GWS 61 MEL 86 with 11 to play in Q4

As soon as the GWS cut the lead to a goal it is back out to three goals.

Too many entries for GWS to defend.

GWS 61 MEL 80

He kicks his third. Another great game for him. The GWS defence were poor there, should marked, instead the ball skims off a fist and Pickett kicks the easiest of goals.

Toby Green does it again. A poor defensive mix up seeks two Demons defenders go for the same ball.

That ends with Greene crumbing, and he snaps truly.

Alarm bells really ringing for Melbourne now.

GWS 61 MEL 67

GWS trail by 18 points with three less fit players and what a start!

They kick a goal straight from the centre bounce, Toby Greene kicking his fourth.

Melbourne not traditionally the most composed side over the last few seasons so truly anything could happen here.

GWS 55 MEL 67 with 19 to play in Q4.

They’re in control despite the lead only being 18-points.

It doesn’t seem like much, but with the Giants down De Boer, Coniglio and Davis on the bench this will be tough for them to overcome.

Coniglio is done for the day.
