Melbourne win by 21 points
Richmond went into quarter time with a lead, and were in front for most of the night. They withstood a run of three goals by the Demons in the second quarter to kick six in a row which gave them a 15 point lead at the long break.
The margin was slashed to under a goal at the final change, before five goals to one in the last quarter won the game for Melbourne.
Best were Lyon, O'Dwyer and Bennett. Schwarz suffered a jarred knee, and Steven Clark was reported for striking in the last quarter. Clark was later cleared.
