Image Melbourne's fourth win in the first seven weeks marked the high point of their season. In a top quality game, Matthew Lloyd kicked seven and Jeff Farmer six but the Demons won with a larger spread of goalkickers. Lloyd also collected teammate Blake Caracella with an elbow that was intended for Shane Woewodin.

Each team kicked six goals in both of the first two quarters, and Melbourne took the lead with five to four in the third term before restricting Essendon to a solitary major in the last. The Demons would win just two more games for the year.

Farmer and Viney were joined in the bests by David Neitz and Andrew Leoncelli. Viney and White helped dominate the last quarter and put the Bombers away.

Melbourne 18.12.120 d. Essendon 13.8.86
Best - Robertson, Lamb, Godfrey
Goals - Robertson 6, Frost 3, Williams 2, Ottens 2, Smoker 2, Johnstone 1, Speers 1, Smith 1
