Melbourne win by 13 points
Two of the highest scoring teams the competition came together and put on one of the best games of the year.
A blistering first quarter set up the victory for the Demons, and they extended the margin by a point bfore half time. North finally began to chip away at the lead during the third quarter before a seven goal to four last term made the result more respectable.
Despite the final score flattering North they had been second best all day, and they were flattered by having booted four goals in the last five minutes of the game.
McGrath, Smith and La Fontaine were best.
Melbourne 12.21 drew North Melbourne 14.9
