The Demons tried several new players against the VFA opposition and won but without being convincing. Prahran's pressure and poise early rattled Melbourne, on the back of a strong defensive performance they found themselves ahead at half time.
It took until the third quarter to pull in front thanks to dominance in the air which countered Prahran's speed advantage.
