Melbourne win by 13 points
The Demons had already beaten Essendon in the Semi Final and repeated the dose to win the Premiership with better marking and stronger attacking.
The Bombers reeled in a 23 point half-time lead to hit the front early in the last quarter but Melbourne struck back and held on to win.
Other players included John Cunningham.
