Saturday 20 October - Subiaco
East Perth 7.14.56
Melbourne win by 11 points
The second post season game against interstate premiers.
East Perth jumped the Demons in the first quarter, and it was only a combination of Melbourne's strong defence and the West Australian side's poor goalkicking that kept the game close. In the dying minutes the Demons only held a five point lead, before extending the gap shortly before the end.
Midway through the game the field umpire was replaced.
