1956 Exhibition Game vs East Perth

Saturday 20 October - Subiaco

Melbourne 9.13.67
East Perth 7.14.56

Melbourne win by 11 points

Goalkickers: Unknown

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.
