Collingwood win by 25 points
On a day dedicated to fundraising towards a cure for Motor Neurone Disease former Demon mentor ((Neale Daniher) was the guest of honour.
In front of a big crowd the Pies got off to a fast start with the first two goals to Travis Cloke - on the way to four in the first quarter and seven straight for the game - before Jeremy Howe struck back with two of his own to level scores. A missed scoring opportunity at one end then saw Collingwood transfer the ball into attack and kick the first of five in a row. A late Jesse Hogan goal kept the Demons within five goals at half time.
Melbourne then proceeded to kick five goals in the first 10 minutes of the second quarter to snatch the lead. Collingwood recovered and managed to successfully hold them goalless for the rest of the quarter, and kicked two late majors of their own to open a handy lead.
The Magpies opened up a four goal lead in the third quarter before Melbourne struck back again and levelled the scores. Once more late goals cost them, with Jack Fitzpatrick penalised for inexplicably scooping the ball through in the goalsquare and Lynden Dunn conceding a free-kick to Cloke in the dying seconds.
From there the Dees were out of gas and though they managed to keep Collingwood goalless for the first 13 minutes of the last term they didn't kick one themselves for the quarter and went down to a four goal defeat.
The Neale Daniher Trophy was presented for best player on the ground and won by Collingwood's Cloke.
