The league side's pace and system helped them dominate the first half before the VFA side rallied, only unable to challenge for victory due to their weak attack.
After a scrambling beginning Melbourne then kicked five goals straight and held their opponents to three points in the second term to open up a 33 point lead at the long break.
Prahran held the advantage in the third term but their forwards were being held well by Melbourne's defenders and the teams added three goals apiece.
Best were Ball, G. Jones and Beames. Glass replaced Walsh during the game.
B: Ogden, Roberts, G. Jones
HB: Ball, Hooper, L. Jones
