National Australia Bank Cup 2009, Round 1
Hawthorn vs Melbourne
Saturday 21 February
Venue: York Park
Hawthorn win by 3 points
For three quarters the 2008 wooden spooners matched it with the premiers. More than 5 goals in front at three-quarter time it looked as if they were going to withstanding a massive comeback, but Jarryd Roughead marked and goalled with 30 seconds left to win it for the Hawks.
Paul Johnson was reported for striking Sam Mitchell in the first quarter but was cleared.
