Melbourne captured their fourth straight Seconds flag in the VFL Grand Final curtain raiser, running away in the last quarter to win comfortably.
The Reds kicked the first two goals through Gibb before Geelong had scored, and put on another four behinds before Geelong broke through for a point. The first goal by the visitors came on the counter after saving a chance in defence, and it kept them within nine points at the first change.
Geelong shot out of the gate and kicked two goals early in the second quarter, before Melbourne used the wings to break through the hard tussle and kick seven goals to five for the term. The game turned again in the third quarter, with Geelong adopting direct tactics and launching a comeback that cut the margin to eight at the last change.
Melbourne killed the game quickly, kicking three consecutive goals at the start of the last quarter and went on to win.
