A return to Launceston helped North Melbourne snap a two-game losing streak and jump back into the AFLW's top six.
Playing at UTAS Stadium for the third consecutive February, the Kangaroos made it three from three with an entertaining 9.5 (59) to 6.1 (37) win over fellow mid-tabler Carlton.
Starting with a bang as Kate Gillespie-Jones and Jasmine Garner goaled in the opening two minutes, the Roos found themselves behind at the main break before running away with the game in the final term.
North Melbourne's two Launceston young guns - Daria Bannister and Mia King - both enjoyed solid showings and finished the night with a goal each.
Bannister had the crowd roaring 20 seconds into the opening term, plucking down a strong contested mark before narrowly missing a tough set shot.

She finished the night with 1.2 after converting another contested grab in the third term, while King slotted her second AFLW major from a last-term free kick and finished with nine disposals.
With star Blue Maddy Prespakis out suspended, the Roos' midfielders had a field day with Garner (32 touches), Emma Kearney (28 touches and six tackles) and Ashleigh Riddell (23 touches, nine tackles) leading the way.
"We got monstered in the midfield," Carlton coach Daniel Harford said.
"We've got a young developing midfield against one of the best and most experienced in the business and they had their way with us, particularly after half-time.
"Their good players were the difference tonight - Kearney, [Jenna] Bruton, Garner, Liddell - they were awesome tonight and our mids just had no answers to them."
The Blues showed plenty of fight in the second term as the silky Darcy Vescio kicked two goals and set up another.
An early goal to young gun Mimi Hill brought the margin back to five points early in the last term before recalled Roo Sophie Abbatangelo broke the scoring drought at the ground's Northern end with a brilliant snap, paving the way for five last-term majors.
"Throughout the game, our ability to control the tempo of the game was really good," North coach Darren Crocker said.
"There were times when we could go quick, but there were also a lot of times when we got a mark or a free kick and the girls just controlled the tempo."
