The Demons travelled to Windy Hill trying to get their season back on track after losing their first game for the year a week earlier but came away with what remains the equal 19th highest score Melbourne has ever conceded.

Essendon dominated everywhere around the ground and fully took advantage of the fact that Melbourne lost Robbie Flower to concussion early in the game and Brian Wilson during the third term with a shoulder injury. Danny Hughes remained on the ground but clearly under sufferance as he was hobbling around on crutches after the game because of a sprained ankle.
