Melbourne win by 2 goals
Goalkickers: Dave Aitken 2
In their traditional season opener, Melbourne played against 25 drawn from the public schools of Melbourne and Geelong but were untroubled. The ground was in a poor state due to rain, and it hurt the quality of the game.
Best were Don, Stiffe and Syme.
