With just three goals on the board going into the last term the Demons charged home. Reserves coach John Beckwith was forced to coach the second half when Norm Smith suffered heart pains, Smith's brother Len had passed away from a heart attack just a week before so he was taking no chances.

Brian Dixon was the Demons best, and if he had the support up front that he deserved Melbourne would have kicked more than three goals in the first three quarters. Still, with both team's backlines firmly in charge, Melbourne were still within striking distance going into the last quarter. Six of Dixon's 25 kicks were old fashioned drop-kicks.

After his first chance to give the senior team a rev-up Beckwith's team could have won if a Hassa Mann shot in the last few seconds had gone through.
