The third game of the night saw a struggling Carlton side up against a Balwyn side keen to make up for dropping points the previous week. Having lost the services of Khaled Ayache and Cameron Holmes since the transfer window opened up, Carlton were fielding a very young side, with only three of the eight players in the matchday squad over the age of 20. The game starte in a very close manner as both teams struggled to create much in front of goal. After a large part of the half remained without a goal, Oscar Magrina eventually broke the dead lock late in the half and put Balwyn up 1-0 going into the break.

The second half was a slightly more open affair but the game was still very close as both teams had to work hard to create chances. Eventually, however Balwyn would breakthrough again as they worked it round well before finding Michele Giotta to finish from inside the area. Carlton did not give up however, and true to their name, they showed a lot of heart, as they continued to apply pressure on the Balwyn defence. They were finally rewarded for their efforts when Salvi Michele was deemed to have handled the ball in the area, and thus a penalty was awarded to Carlton. Up stepped Chaaban Rajab who dispatched the penalty to put Carlton back in the hunt. With their tails up the Heart continued to press, and they were rewarded when Ernie Simsek drilled a ball to the back post, and Jackson Georgi was there to bundle the ball in at the back post. It seemed as if Carlton had some how salvaged a point, however, with less than two minutes remaining Robert Armellini took the ball down the left before squaring it for Salvi Michele to tap into an empty net to claim all three points.

Man of the Match: Robert Armellini (FC Balwyn)
