Melbourne win by 3 points
2 - Steven O'Dwyer
1 - Ricky Jackson
Just a month after their first clash for the year, where Melbourne had only scored two goals, the second match between the sides had a much happier result for the Demons. Even though they were without key players Steven Stretch - who was injured at training - and Earl Spalding they won a thriller.
The Cats lead narrowly through the first half before Garry Lyon put on a three goal burst to put the Demons in front at the last change.
They held a 20 point lead late in the game before Geelong booted three goals in a row to bring the margin to under a goal with a minute left to play. Luckily the Demons managed to hold on to the siren.
Stephen Newport destroyed the in-form Mark Bairstow, picking up a second best on ground 28 touches of his own.
Best were Johnson, Newport and Lovett
