The Eagles were one of the form sides in the competition, and took on a Melbourne side coming off the bye having won just two games before it. They were missing Peter Matera, Ashley McIntosh and Chris Mainwaring but still should have beaten the 13th placed Demons.

Allen Jakovich, finally restored to the senior team after proving his fitness and temperament during weeks in the Reserves, led his side to an impressive come from behind win. He kicked three in the first quarter, but the inaccurate Demons were four goals down at half time. They cut the gap to a point at three quarter time before going three goals down in the last quarter. Jakovich then kicked two more goals to help lift his side over the line.

Best were Lyon, Stynes and Obst.

Mick Malthouse described it as "one of our worst losses ever."
