After an even first quarter the more experienced Bombers kicked away to lead by 44 points at half-time and 55 early in the third term but Melbourne clawed the margin back to four goals at the last change.

In a match where the focus was on James Hird playing his first match since Round 2 of 1999, Matthew Lloyd kicked 7 for the winners.

Best for the Demons were Woewodin, Yze and Rigoni.

David Schwarz was reported for kicking but the charge was withdrawn before it could reach the tribunal.
