Melbourne's up and down recent run saw them back down again as the Tricolours got their first ever VFL win against the Redlegs.

Footscray's game style put their opponents under pressure, not allowing them to practice their fast and open play on a rare dry Melbourne saturday afternoon.

A brief rally in the third quarter saw the visitors draw within seven points, but they never kicked another goal and Footscray steadied to win comfortably.

Abernethy, Ogden and Vine were best.
