Melbourne win by 1 point
Marty Hore (6th game)
Gold Coast kicked a goal to go ahead with 45 seconds left. Then defender Marty Hore kicked his first career goal on the run from 50 metres out to tie scores, before Melbourne rushed forward from the next centre bounce and scored a point to win. Tom McDonald spilt a mark at the top of the square but was able to get his foot to the ball and kick it into the post with one second to play.
Best were Oliver, Salem and Harmes. Hibberd suffered a broken collarbone, Melksham fractured his foot and Lewis also injured his foot.
