Essendon win by 3 goals

The match was played as a benefit for baseballers, and the crowd showed little interest in the game. After neither team scored a goal in the first half Essendon ran away with victory in the second.

Eddie Fox captained Melbourne, and the two sides went toe-to-toe in the first half. Melbourne had the first opportunity courtesy of a free kick but only scored a point.
