Despite an after-the-siren opportunity to last week's nine-goal wonder Zach Morris, Clarence downed Launceston 13.7 (85) to 11.17 (83).
Marking 40 metres out from goal, directly in front, the defender-turned-forward couldn't add to his tally, signalling Launceston's second loss of the year.
Despite the loss, Blues coach Mitch Thorp was pleased with the standard of the contest.
"It was, first and foremost, a really good level of State League footy," he said.
"I think what we are seeing at the moment, last week Clarence and the Tigers and this week with Clarence and ourselves, that there's some real substance within the competition.
"It was neck and neck all day, they probably had their nose in front for longer periods than what we did but every time we got our nose in front they still had some momentum."
The Kangaroos led by nine points at quarter-time, two goals at the main break and 10 going into the last, but the ladder-leaders still showed their might, finding the front for patches of the last quarter.
Inaccuracy in front of goal was the Blues' kryptonite however, with coach Thorp saying his side "won all the numbers we were after".
"We were plus 28 at stoppages which is an absolute bit of confusion really because when you're plus 28 at the stoppage you normally go on and win the game," he said.
"We were a little bit inaccurate in front of goal, I think we had eight more scoring shots, so they were a little bit more efficient than what we were."
His brother, Cody, booted five in defeat while Clarence duo Josh Green and Baker Smith both kicked three as the Kangaroos had seven individual goalkickers.
Keegan Wylie was named best on ground for the Kangaroos, while Thorp credited the performances of Grant Holt and his five-goal forward.
"It was a really willing game and I was really pleased with the growth in Grant's game," Thorp said.
"Cody played really well, he kicked five in a low-scoring game, he took some big contested marks."
The Blues will dust themselves off through the week to face Lauderdale at Windsor Park.
